Travelers' Choice
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.

I cannot say enough good things about the Hotel Emblem! Great location and the staff were so nice (Orien was great!). I love the music and book decorations and quotes all throughout the hotel. Rooms are small but well-equipped with quality and thoughtful amenities like: a Nespresso, free bottled water, plush large towels, huge TV, tall shower heads (for my tall husband - thank you) and super comfortable beds. The hotel even provided a COVID pack: Emblem mask, sanitizer and touchless tool. Check in and check out was quick, easy and COVID compliant. Stay here! You will not be disappointed! This is the gem in the heart of San Francisco!

If you love the writing and poetry of the Beat Generation, you will love staying here. From Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg quotes on the walls to art and books created and inspired by the Poets who haunted and shaped San Francisco and it’s culture this hotel is beautiful, old SF with modern touches in a great neighborhood. Enjoy.

The staff was super friendly and the front desk representative was extremely friendly, efficient, and welcoming. The hotel has an older vibe, but it was an amazing location and super cute! Loved our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay. They accommodate us for early check in and late check out ( without asking!) Hotel is very artsy and cool atmosphere ( too bad we couldn’t be in the lobby/ bar area and blue lane coffee due to COVID 19😞) Room is a bit small side but it was very clean, quiet and has comfortable bed. Hotel offers unique one of a kind accommodation services ( record player, meditation bowl, typewriter etc..) which We fully took advantage of , and created a wonderful special experience. All stuffs are a so kind and warm ( Thank you to Orion and other lady at front desk. ((Sorry didn’t get her name ))especially) even housekeeping person left little thank you note for leaving tip for her is sweet touch.. makes this place like home. Definitely one of the best hotel stay we had. We will come back for sure.

Loved our stay. Super close to union square and restaurants. They have us a bottle of sparkling wine, which was pretty awesome. Parking was a couple blocks away but super convenient. We would stay again. I just wish the restaurant and coffee bar were open.
