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.

Check-in was a breeze, thank you Gitanjali (I hope I spelled that correctly). I arrived much earlier than the stated check-in time, and Gitanjali was quite accommodating and managed to get me into a room to sleep after my super early flight into SF. There were hand sanitizer stations pretty much around every corner of the lobby and the rest of the hotel. It was also great to see a housekeeper cleaning as I walked into the lobby. Everything definitely felt super clean. The sanitation kit in the room was also a plus--mask, contactless keychain tool, and pocket/credit card-sized sanitizing spray. The bed was comfy, and I had what felt like a ton of pillows. I also had a desk in my room and a large tv. I didn't have a mini-fridge to stock with food to minimize trips to the store, but a simple call down to the front desk resolved that issue. Orien set up a portable mini-fridge in my room (for eggs, in this trying time--that's an Always Sunny reference for all you cool cats and kittens). The lobby looks super hip, and I can't wait until we get to our new "normal" to visit that bar and lounge that wasn't in-use during my stay. I didn't interact with many staff members, but the few I did were very friendly; Gitanjali, Orien, and Brad. Thank you for a clean, safe, and friendly stay.

I’ve stayed at least 2 dozen hotels in the San Francisco Union Square/Financial District and have to say the Emblem Hotel is probably my favorite boutique respite stay over hands down. From the moment we walked in Emblem GM Brad made us feel like the only guests that mattered. From the unique theme of the Emblem to accommodating helpful mindset of its employees this place is special. The assistant to the GM Patrick went out of his to offer and deliver where most hotel staff fail. These folks are here to help not hinder your experience. My suggestion to anyone traveling to San Francisco is try the Emblem Hotel for one night and I’m certain you will write a review similar to my own. PS I’m not the type of person to even consider writing a review but felt compelled to do so. Happy travels and stay safe. Regards Jack

Title says it all. Wake up at 0650 to go pay a meter and hope you don't get towed. The meter maid was at my car at 0701. The meter would not take a credit card and the hotel offers no help with this or anything else. There is no food there and if you arrive late, no food anywhere. The room is TINY, don't let the fish eye photos fool you. A deluxe king is a tiny room that barely fits a king and looks out at a wall.

Everything was perfect from booking to check out. All the staff was above superb and friendly. The employees went above and beyond to make you feel special. They greeted us at the door with friendly smiles and welcoming vibe. They brought a luggage cart to us so I didn't need to chase it down. They gave us a little pet care package for our puppy, decor was on par, linens were amazing, bath products were better than the ones we brought, literally nothing was left unthought of.
