Less than a block from Union Square, our hotel is a short walk from San Francisco’s galleries, restaurants, and shops along Geary Street. We’re two miles from Fisherman’s Wharf and six miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. Enjoy dinner and drinks at our restaurant and bar and catch the cable car just outside our doors when you’re ready to explore the city.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Barnes San Francisco, part of the Tapestry Collection by Hilton, earns praise for its prime location near Union Square, with easy access to public transportation and attractions. While the atmosphere exudes a comfortable, local charm, guests have mentioned that some rooms feel small and outdated. Although service is commended, especially the efforts of Alejandro and Izzy, the hotel's overall value is questioned by some reviewers in light of its 4-star claims. Room experiences vary, with noise and cleanliness being points of contention, though the hotel's cleanliness, in general, is appreciated. Amenities, including the complimentary breakfast, are well-received, but critiques of small bathrooms and spotty Wi-Fi indicate room for improvement.

I stayed here once earlier this month and I will not be doing so again. First impressions weren't great, standoffish front desk staff and a long wait for Diamond member to check in. No apology for the wait (and no welcome gift either like some other Diamonds apparently received). Room was below average and "energy efficient" heating/AC had to be turned on manually every time I entered the room. Oddly enough, it seemed to stay on when I left and turn off when I enter. Keurig coffee machine was of a different variety. Coffee took forever to brew, could not tell when there is water below the reservoir. Worst part of the stay was the lack of hot water in the bathroom. I've stayed in good hotels, luxury hotels, average hotels, and budget hotels. Old and new. Never had this problem anywhere. Did not even want to take a shower during my stay because it was not comfortable. Shower rod actually fell off and I had to put it back on, because it is only held together by an adhesive into the tub. No where to put toiletries in the bathroom, either. The hotel needs new management and a better attitude. Awful. Many better Hiltons in SF.

No hot water in bathroom. Asked for a different room to shower at in morning which took an hour to find. Fire alarm kept sounding from 6am. Lobby area tasteful, rooms are small and dated. Fridge very noisy and had to be unplugged

It’s an old hotel which has been tastefully furnished; good location and nice touch of hospitality, with water, coffee and tea in the lobby all day. Our main issue is the lack of hot water in the bathroom. We had to call the hotel both nights during our stay. They sent engineering staff right away, but we only had lukewarm water after the fix. I had to take a very quick shower and was not able to wash my hair. Wondering if it’s a more structural issue that will require a major repair.

Cute and sexy. Nice accommodations for a quick stay in San Francisco. Located right near transportation, shops and eateries. The staff is amazing. A little pricey for what you get but its comparable to other places in San Francisco but not as cute. This is my go to spot whenever in San Fran.

Upon entering the”bar” to register, there is an awful pungent smell that actually burned my throat! It got a bit less as we went upstairs but, it was as if they tried to cover up a smell/ water/ mold issue. Overnight I began coughing and became congested. By 6am I had to call Hilton to find other accommodations. They were excellent, but The Barnes needs to look into remediation of this possible mold issue! I am prone to asthma and this could have put me into the hospital if I had stayed my 3 full days there. I should have checked out right away! Fighting before a health issue arose, would most likely have been a no win situation ; but now I’m suffering. I have every symptom of a mold reaction! My husband and I are very loyal Hilton Diamond and HGVC owners, never using anyone but Hilton. The new Collections of Hilton are all renovated in quaint cities but, MUST look at possible health issues Before renovating!! I am in healthcare and do know about this, as I have been involved with renovations that FIRST had to deal with remediations. PLEASE, beware if you have any health issues before staying at this lovely, quaint Hotel.

The hotel itself is located in an old building. This comes with all the pros and cons. We personally really liked the atmosphere but I guess it’s not for everyone. Beds were comfy, room small but bigger than expected given the location. Our windows went to the courtyard - which really exaggerates the size. The wall on the other side is like 3 m away. That means not much daylight and privacy if the curtains are open. But as we were only in the room to shower and sleep, this was no problem at all. On the contrary, it was nice dark and quiet at nighttime. We had breakfast at the hotel twice and found value for money quite good. The location at union square is perfect for anything you want to do in the city.

Wow, wow, wow! The Barnes is a hidden gem. Perfectly located on Powell St, it’s in an incredibly safe area. I arrived at the BART station from the airport and walked with my suitcase the short two blocks (less than 5 minutes) £- so easy. This is THE place to stay - on the famous tram street, central and safe. My welcome from Marian and Amarion at reception was amazing - so vivacious and helpful - including a great list of restaurant recommendations both walking distance and further away (Maru Sushi, Scomas’s Sausalito, Swan Oyster Depot). My stay was off to the perfect start. My room was 520. A massive room including 2 desks, large windows, great mirrors and a fantastic bathroom - lots of room, huge shower, great water pressure. All fully and recently renovated - really tastefully done. My sleep quality was great - comfortable bed, air conditioning and fan - and whisper quiet. The great thing about my room (and I think most rooms) is they face into a common internal quadrangle - so absolutely no street or tram noise. The hotel is walking distance from Macy’s, Trader Joe’s, multiple Walgreens in the event you are a shopper. I just loved wandering around and enjoying the vibe, trams, buzz. After dinner, I returned to the hotel for a nightcap - a nice vibe at the bar - and the burgers looked amazing! And a perfectly made gin and tonic! Security was top notch (but not needed) which made me feel safe. Wifi was fast and strong - no problem for a Teams call from my room. All rooms also have irons, ironing boards, hair dryers and good quality products (soap, body wash etc). And I had the pleasure of being welcomed by hotel manager Azucena during my stay - she clearly sets the bar for staff - warm, engaging and professional.
