5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Amazing hotel! Friendly and accommodating staff who made our honeymoon memorable! Wonderful location as it is next to the trolley line, Union Square and restaurants. Harvey, you were wonderful at the front desk. The Concierge was fantastic as well. Loved Wine Hour from 5-6

Great locations. Small quaint rooms. They provided a play pen for our two year old. Beds were incredibly comfortable. Room and bathroom were exceptionally clean. Would highly recommend staying here. There was no fitness facility however which was a bummer for us.

While in California, my son and I visited the Golden Gate Bridge, toured tip to tip and were able to see four base billable games. ( Padre, Giants, Anaheim and Oakland park) We spent time at the Fisherman Wharf which was amazing while riding the metro system, trolley cars and cabs.

I stayed here for business. The desk staff was courteous. The lobby was pretty cool in its styling, fooling me into thinking I was being put up in a nicer facility. The $15 fee was off-putting. The room... Well... That's another story. Coming to the room they provided me was sort of a Machiavellian experience. I expected to see demonic... More

We arrived at the Hotel on a Friday night to a bit of chaos as a tour group was just arriving. Our desk check-in was not very helpful as we were a family of five and I had booked two rooms. I specifically called ahead to request one room have two beds or a rollaway. The rooms were tiny, no... More

I would stay again, great location, staff are super nice and overall price was good for what we got. Mini fridge would have been nice since the food in San Fran is not cheap. The hallway noise can be a bit loud in the room however this is an older building for the 1920's. The layout is super cool. The... More

We were not told at book in that our room was 1 bed and a stretcher. We had booked and confirmed this trip quite some time ago. I... More

The common areas of the hotel ate very nice, but the room fell very short of expectations. The room could have been better quality for the price. And the bathroom was not as expected. I felt like I was staying in an apartment instead of a hotel.

Serves a purpose, good location and reasonable pricing but a Monday night was double a Sunday night. Rooms small and sparten did the job, the photos on the web site must be from a different room to the one I had. I looked into the centre of the building and needed the blinds closed all the time to stop others... More

Loved this hotel, it has so much character! Great location, close to transport, extremely friendly and helpful staff at all times. The King Suite is very spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed the shower. I recommend Hotel Union Square to others.
