We stayed at The Inn at Union Square for 3 nights during our honeymoon tour of California. We chose the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and recommendations in Frommers and wasn't disappointed! The hotel is perfectly placed, just a minutes walk from Union Square and all it's shopping!
We arrived a bit early so our room wasn't quite ready however the reception staff offered to keep our bags whilst we went exploring for a couple of hours. Once we arrived back, check-in was effortless and we were shown to our room on the first floor where we found our bags waiting for us.
We had booked a Queen Deluxe room which was amazing and felt so homely. The decor was beautiful and everything was so clean and fresh. We had a separate living area with desk and wardrobes, with a bathroom/shower room in the middle off a small lobby and the bedroom at the end (with another wardrobe). Even though you were right in the middle of San Francisco, it was so quiet and peaceful. There wasn't a view from our room, we basically looked out onto a wall which I think most of the rooms did, however they had fitted trellis to the wall opposite and had window boxes with flowers in it which showed they really made an effort to make the rooms as best as they could for their guests.
The free wine from around 6-7pm every evening was a really nice touch too. We went along on two evenings and enjoyed the accompanying cheese, biscuits and other nibbles they had on offer but generally took it back to our room (like most other guests did) and enjoyed it with our feet up watching the TV which was just what we needed after a hard day walking and exploring the city!
There wasn't a coffee machine in our room however there was freshly brewed coffee available 24/7 out in the lobby on every floor. There was a small sitting area so you could either have your coffee there whilst looking out the window watching the hustle and bustle outside or take it back to your room. They also had amazing cookies left in a jar on the lobby table every evening which again were amazing!
The continental breakfast was served in the lobby, on the floor above us which again was really great and had plenty on offer. You simply filled your tray with everything you wanted and either sat and enjoyed it at the table there or took it back to your room.
The staff were always very friendly, very willing to help with any queries and we really couldn't fault them in any way.
This is the perfect hotel for someone wanting a cosy hotel which feels like a home from home. We couldn't fault it in any way and if we ever return to San Francisco, we'll definitely be heading back here again!
