Due to the city lock-down and everything going on, I forgot to mention how great Hanna (Hannah?) and Andre were during my stay here. They made sure I was doing well and whenever I needed assistance, they never hesitated. The hotel is in a great location in the city, and if you need essentials, there is a Walgreens across the street. I look forward to staying here again when everything is back to normal.

My parents and I enjoyed our stay at HUS. The staff were enthusiastic and helpful. They have an option where they can send you text messages to check up on you. The room was clean and organized. I would agree with other reviews that there was a slight smell to the room, probably because the building is so old. Nonetheless, the hotel was a good value for the money and the location was great! We bought the parking package online that included valet parking, which helped save us 50% of the parking costs. When parking, there are a few curbside spaces right in front of the hotel off of Powell St. We didn't know if we could drive onto Powell St., since the public transit rail goes right through the street, but yes, we are allowed to drive onto that street. Also, the hotel stay required us a $100 deposit that gets refunded when we finish our stay without causing damage.

Very reasonable price. Very comfortable room. You could not be better placed in the city. Everything is a stones throw away. Staff could not be more helpful to make our stay nice. The hotel is literally a stay and sleep place but restaurants and diners all around so not an issue. Great place to stay.

upon arrival I was greeted with the most infectious smile. Andre was well educated on the history of this building. After doing some research and reading that one of the rooms is particularly haunted . I asked Andre if I could switch to that room. He and another staff member accommodated my requests and made this stay one i would never forget.

This place is my go to hotel. In the shopping district of Union Square and very close to a lot of places and attractions. The staff here are exceptional! Very happy to see that Heather is still working at the hotel, had the pleasure of meeting Hannah and the rest of the staff! We arrived early and left our bags with the bellman and Heather told us she was sending a text and will text us when the room was ready. We stayed in the Dashiell Hammet suite. Plenty room, decor was of course a tribute to Dashiell Hammet (overcoat, hat, scarf, typewriter, falcon, the book the Maltese Falcon and more). The wine reception is red or white with a live musician. Tad's steakhouse is now around the corner. Cable car turn about is a block away or catch it on the corner. It will take you straight to the Wharf area, pass Lombard street and not to far from Chinatown. Did not have a bathtub but I would not have missed it if it wasn't for that 12 mile bike ride to and from the Golden Gate Bridge. (I just need to soak after that ride!) The room had a travel refillable water bottles and a water station to fill them or your own. One draw back, the room was a little musty/old but nothing that a plug in can't fix. I will be back later this year to celebrate my cousin's birthday and will be staying here again!
