Best apps in town. Sidewalk dining is fun.Mussels and calmari are great apps. Fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Gabby , the owner is the best and helps out the staff when needed. Entrees are phenominal. Varied menu..something for all including the kid. Great old fashioned bar and drinks to match

This B&B type hotel is above a very good Italian restaurant and bar. It was only 1 block from the Marina and was perfect for an overnight stay with my wife. The town of Benicia is very quaint and definitely worh a stop.

If possible, I would give the Union Hotel in Benicia minus stars! My husband and I had an appalling experience after booking a stay at this hotel. We live in San Francisco and were attending a wedding in Benicia on August 27, 2016. Weeks ahead, on August 13, 2016, my husband booked a room at this hotel through Hotel.com. We... More

The Union Hotel sure was an adventure. We arrived around 7:30, so it was early evening but still sunny outside. When we went to try the door, it was locked, and we found a tiny envelope with our last name taped to the window. The envelope had our passcode to get through the door. So we walked into a room...

The staff was very friendly. Large main bedroom, and a large bathroom with a jetted tub. It's very convenient having the restaurant with a full bar in the hotel. So we get some drinks and brought them to our room.

My husband and I were looking forward to our visit to the Union Hotel. The photos on the website looked so nice. I should have taken a clue when I called to inquire if there was a refrigerator in our room. The man who answered the phone was not professional and could hardly answer my question. He actually never did.... More

Although we did not stay at the hotel, we visited frequently throughout the year. The Hotel resturant owner, Gabby, is delightful, charming, and an excellent chef. He has created many of the recipes on the Italian menu. The hotel was established in the 1800's, the decor is authentic with the period. The dining hall has a glow of earlier times.

View was great all down hill from there. Hotel staff complacent and could care less. Pets allowed which explains all the stains.One coffee cup on arrival which was used. Never never again. Furnishings were not antique just old....water stains scratches dents broken...seen better at Goodwill.
