We stayed at Hotel Union Square from Feb 17-21 for a girls' long weekend getaway. I chose the hotel because of its price and proximity to Union Square and the BART. We were not disappointed when we arrived late in the evening to find the hotel was just a few minutes walk from the Powell St. BART station. The outside of the hotel is unassuming but the inside is quite stylish. It is a small hotel decorated in an art deco style. Our room (#308) was petite but clean and functional. This hotel is definitely not the most luxurious in town but the little extras (exposed brick, flat screen TVs, free WiFi, iPod docking stations) were appreciated. The only complaints were the teeny-tiny bathroom sink and the iPod docking station that was not iPhone compatible. The sink was so small that the floor would get wet when you washed your face.
This hotel provided excellent value for money if you're the type who can live without perks such as on-site restaurant, gym or included breakfasts. I was expecting the room to be noisy because of the cable car on Powell Street but our room faced one of the side streets and wasn't that loud. Though I did wear earplugs when I slept.
Bottom-line - If you're looking for a luxurious experience, this may not be the place for you. If you want a stylish, comfortable, inexpensive hotel in the middle of it all, give Hotel Union Square a try.
