Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

Perfect hotel for exploring all of San Francisco. Comfortable beds, good, clean bathroom facilities. Staff on reception were friendly and helpful. Overall a good budget hotel, felt safe walking around the area as a female solo traveller.

While I'm all in favour of looking for value for money in big city hotels,this was just a bridge too far!! I'm sorry I didn't splash out a few more dollars for somewhere decent. Not to put too fine a point on it, this place is a dump! It is cramped,dark, dismal, tired and

Great hotel in the heart of SF; small rooms with old but nice furniture; decor fabrics make the rooms elegant despite the room size. Ironing board, hairdryer etc. Great, helpful hotel staff. We will go back!

Is the area safe?
I stayed there on my own for a few days and felt totally safe - and I'm not some big intimidating person. Then again I didn't venture far from the hotel at night - just to the cheesecake factory and back ;) But I was catching Ubers and the cable car early in the mornings and it was fine. I did notice a couple of homeless people around but they were harmless.

You can definitely store your luggage with them after check out - I did the same thing on my last day in DC. I had an afternoon Amtrak but wanted to explore the city a bit more and they were more than happy to hold my bags until I returned in the afternoon.

I am sorry but I don't know the answer to your question. We took public transportation so didn't need to park. The hotel website says there is a parking garage near by and it is $20 for 24 hours. They have a website.

How much is parking
Not good, there is a parking place 400 meters away, charges 40$ pr. night. There is parking outside the hotel, usually full.

"My tip is to avoid!"
"Not sure. There are not many views to be had. All rooms about the same."
"rooms on the top floor get more air circulation and have less noise."
"Get a room in a higher floor"
"If you are a temperamental sleeper then I would suggest not reserving a room facing Geary St. if you do, bring ear plugs and an eye mask!!!"
