Spent a week at this hotel which was more than enough, however the location was central and easy to get to places. Generally the front desk staff were unwelcoming and unhelpful but could not fault the 2 concierges that we dealt with as they could not have been nicer or more helpful. The room was small with a good size... More

Decent hotel right in the middle of the city. Nothing to fault really, food prices were a little expensive but that is my only quibble. Hotel was clean and well equipped, the staff were helpful and nothing was amiss. Would return.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room and the hotel in general. The room was a good size , nicely furnishef and very well equipped. The only thing in the room that could be improved is the window coverings, they were blinds that did not block out all of the light. Blackout curtains would be very useful... More

Hotel is located in a central location for shops, restaurants and bars. The fisherman's wharf is quite a long walk but you can get a cable car from the centre. We found the staff in the lobby and the bar were friendly and always on hand to offer assistance. Our room had a pool view and was spacious and comfortable... More

This was a great location with a great price for San Fran. It was clean and even though it is old it was fine. We had 2 rooms in July 2016 we were in the older tower in the corner it was not noisy at all

This hotel is ideal for a short stay. We stayed three nights. It was easy to get to and from the BART station, it was clean, warm and welcoming. We had a room at the back which was a bit dark but very quiet. The room was very big with two small doubles for the two of us, also big... More

We've stayed at the Handlery twice now. It is so convenient to Union Square and is in a safer area on San Francisco. Public transport is nearby and the BART to the airport is within walking distance. The restaurant is popular with non guests for breakfast and you may have to wait for a table even if you've prepaid.

Loved this hotel. Got an upgrade too. Was a single traveller and felt so safe. Looking forward to coming back some day with my husband. My room was looking onto the pool which was lovely especially as I was in the heart of the city. Staff all lovely and the Daily grill serves great food.

Staff was very helpful. Parking garage is right across the street from a Starbucks. Next time I won't drive because parking was $50 a day for hotel guests. Location was great for getting to the convention center for a trade show. There are two sides, a modern and an older (nostalgic) side. Pool is right in the middle of the... More
