Good location near to the action in downtown SF. The guys on reception are very friendly and helpful and it's all very laid back and informal. The building is cool, directly opposite an imposing theatre but the room is a little dated - although it didn't bother me, I suppose at some stage it must be due an upgrade. No... More

We were in the 6th floor and felt as though the room had a huge smoke extractor-like next to the window, working day and night. Unbearable noise. Despite the heat, could not even think to open the window due to the noise. The hotel is located in union square, well-connected but far from being the nicest place of the city.... More

The place is well placed. You can go anywhere from there, specially in downtown. Not that expensive if compared with others hotels. The hotel is old, it's clean. I got to tell you that I miss a minibar in the room...it will make the difference! Sometimes at night is a bit hard to sleep because it is noise.

There is not air conditioned and not heating in the rooms. Attention: many rooms are facing to a court, were at 5:00 am -6:00 am start working noises and you will... More

Spent 4 nights at the Union Square Plaza last week/ I didn't book the room. Found out after checking in, no AC. Uncomfortable temp until the wee hours. The bed was the worst. I honestly believe I could feel every spring in the bed. Not much sleeping. One washcloth for 2 people. The last night...no washcloth at all. Desk attendants... More

At the heart of everything you want to see in San Fransisco. Staff tremendously helpful and friendly. Rooms are small and a little tired and dated..however that is reflected in the cost. Considering our visit was for sightseeing we used the hotel for sleeping and a base, and for this it was adequate.

Needs atleast small fridge in room or at minimum an ice machine in hotel. Plus although air con prob not required in San Francisco do need at minimum a fan in room as way too noisy to keep windows open at night. Very helpful staff and as mentioned a++ location

I stayed only one night, during the flight stopover. it's located at the center of the city, so you can walk around to catch a glimpse of San Francisco. Also it's close to Trolley line. The hotel building and the furniture seem quite old, but just enough for a traveler like me who use hotels only to sleep.
