I wanted to spend a few days in "cool" San Francisco and chose the Inn at Union Square, where I've stayed off and on since the mid 90's. It's changed and it hasn't changed - still cozy and charming, but the bathrooms have been nicely updated since our last stay. The hotel staff was very helpful in getting us the... More

The Inn at Union Square is in a great location just off Union Square with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The inn itself is fairly small with maybe a dozen or so rooms per floor. The rooms themselves are spacious by SF standards and have very nicely appointed bathrooms. Note that this is an older building so there are... More

This is the ideal place to stay for a central location. We booked for our first four nights on our US holiday and we weren't disappointed with the location. Rooms were large, bathrooms very clean and the staff were helpful. The breakfast was relatively ok, buffet style, cereals, oatmeal, pastries, fruit, tea / coffee. We were walking distance to almost... More

Good neat and clean rooms. Close to everything. Very helpful and friendly staff. The evening wine/cheese on the hallways is great to meet other guests and recharge after a day of sightseeing or business meetings.

A great little hotel, lots of lovely welcoming touches, very central and the staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. So much nicer than the big impersonal hotels, a real find and we would go again.

Greeting at checkin was very good, hotel is located in middle of union square 1/2 block from trolly line. Room was really nice and clean! Continental breakfast was standard and good, Cheese crackers and wine in the early evening very nice, Fresh cookies at 8:00pm very good. My only comment is I wish each room had refrigerators.

If your the type of person who loves a Marriott, Hyatt or Crown this is (probably) not your place. However, if you like boutique, quirky, original, small, personal....... It's just the right place. Service is great, rooms don't have a view (blocked by building next door), well presented continental breakfast and nightly wine and cheese and homemade cookies make every... More

Very quaint, quiet place to stay in busting Union Square district. If you value location and enjoy a "non-chain" experience, this is the place! Phenomenal location near high end shopping, steps away from Trolley pick up / drop off, within walking distance to all major sights including Fisherman's Wharf, AT&T Park, etc. Fantastic staff - super nice, helpful, accommodating.

The Inn at Union Square is a gem. I will always stay there when visiting San Francisco. Period. Perfect location. Tastefully decorated. Clean. Comfortable bed. Wonderful perks like wine and cheese in the evening. And cookies late night. Exemplary staff. Charming experience.

I first stayed at the Inn at Union Square back in 2007. Me and my girlfriend had the chance to return this year and stayed for five nights, encouraged by the excellent reviews on here. Let me qualify this review by saying that we did enjoy our stay overall. But this time round we were disappointed by some basic things.... More

Dear John, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your thoughts of your stay with us. I am glad that you found some of the same charm and thoughtfulness at our establishment as when you first stayed with us. I am terribly dismayed that it sounds like your perception of us has changed dramatically, though, during your latest... More
