Hotel Emblem is really wonderful. Check-in was a breeze, we loved the room, it’s in the perfect location, the “special amenities” list was hilarious and helpful (they had a white noise machine for us to borrow), the bed was super comfortable, and the front desk service was stellar. We will definitely be back!

This boutique hotel is located right in Union Square next to restaurants and shopping. You can walk to most anything. It is very cool, the decor is modern and theme is fun. The rooms are great with a very nice bed to great technology. Shower was amazing, big and shower pressure perfect! Great art, fun style, great bathroom products...I loved it!

Best Hotel experience ever - the Hotel was unique. The staff was exceptional. The location was close to everything. Loved it. We asked for a singing bowl and tarot cards which are options along with a yoga mat. This place has it all. :)

Hotel Emblem is a wonderful place located near many restaurants, public transportation and provides amazing and personal customer service. We were a group of 10 family members in SF from various states for a long weekend. We were sad that the delightful bar was not open, but the staff allowed for us to use a private room so we could all gather while still being in line with the City Covid protocols. The rooms were nice, large, extremely clean and well decorated. I will note that the walls are very thin and if you end up with a neighbor that chooses to party in their room, you may have issues. This cannot be controlled by the lovely staff, of which we had wonderful after wonderful interactions with as we can and went during our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel when in San Francisco, you will not be disappointed!

I'll get the bad out of the way: there were no trash cans. Recycling bins with no bags, but nowhere to put trash other than taking it downstairs to the desk. That was weird. The air conditioner worked pretty well but made some strange and loud rattling/clicking sounds even when it was off. The sheets weren't as soft as I would have liked. The good: the location was close enough that I could walk to Market, Powell Station, restaurants, etc but just "off the beaten path" enough that it was quieter than I expected. The staff was thoroughly pleasant to interact with - friendly, helpful, but not intrusive or "too much". I ordered delivery a couple of times while there and they would take it from the driver and bring it to me, which made me feel safer. The room itself was clean, comfortable, and exactly as I'd expected from photos and I loved the vibe of the decor. I appreciated the blackout shade on the window as well as the fact that I could actually open the window. Casting from my phone to the tv was easy to set up and the wifi worked perfectly. The provided toiletries smelled really nice. All in all, a very good experience, especially considering we're still in a pandemic.
