Check in and leave the status quo behind. Hotel Emblem in downtown San Francisco, where Nob Hill meets Union Square and the Theater District, is a haven for those that think as boldly as they live. Inspiring conversation in all the right ways, with plenty of modern provocations, Hotel Emblem will feature a cocktail-focused restaurant and 96 vibrant guestrooms. Every corner is designed to spark creativity, from the bar inspired by the Beat Generation, to the book-filled Writer’s Alcove in the lobby, to the eclectic guestrooms, where patterns play and an expressive vibe thrives. This hotel is a muse – and you will be, too. Lend your voice at the weekly poetry slam. Get lost in the flow of nightly live jazz. Tap out a few thoughts on the lobby typewriter.

Great service, funky hotel in a great location. Patrick was excellent and would highly recommend a visit to the Hotel Emblem. I had to travel for work but extended to the stay to enjoy the city. The service at the hotel during COVID made our experience great--lots of outdoor things to do and see. We were even recommended a rooftop restaurant that was awesome. We will be back.

We picked this hotel for the great reviews online. They did not disappoint! We stayed overnight for my birthday celebration and everyone was so nice and accommodating! They even comped the pet fee as a little bday treat which we appreciated a lot. Definitely coming back here and definitely recommending to all my friends and family 😊

This was my second stay at Hotel Emblem and I'm pleased that the exceptional experience of my first stay was repeated. It is a relief to find a fashionable, affordable and friendly boutique hotel that is truly safe during a pandemic stay. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome, greeting you with a cocktail. The rooms are modern, luxurious, quiet and spotless. The decor is clever with treats everywhere you gaze. Bonus features include the built-in bedside USB ports and the hallway water bottle filler. My room overlooked a serene wooded interior courtyard. I plan to return soon. If you're driving from out of town, Hotel Emblem has partnered with the nearby Westin St Francis to offer a surprisingly low overnight parking rate.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Emblem during the difficult COVID time in January 2021. We very much enjoyed our stay. The staff was very courteous as we had a late check-in. As to cleaning, I understand the hotel has a very strict policy. Before a new guest checks-in, they not only wait 24-48 hours to enter the room after a stay, but they install a blue light to help sanitize the room before it’s entered for a thorough cleaning. In addition, the person that checked us in said he is required to get a weekly COVID test to protect himself and guests. I would stay here again as it’s very close to Union Square, Chinatown, restaurants and shopping.
