Value
Villa Florence offers 189 guest rooms, where the Italian-inspired theme continues in the rooms' furniture selection featuring cut velvet lounge chairs and large dramatic Peony flowers painted on the guest bed headboards. The flowers, reminiscent of Florentine flower markets, pair elegantly with bed pillows featuring the Fleur-des-Lis, the symbol of Florence. Each guestroom highlights the uniqueness of the building's architecture, featuring one-off pieces in each room, while the portraits in the guest room corridors are inspired by the Renaissance and evoke the spirit of art, literature, and learning. The whimsical photos in the guest room corridors were created by Liz Heras, a well-known Los Angeles-based graphic artist who creates custom graphic artwork for large-scale hotel projects nationwide. With ample room for the family, an intimate backdrop for romance, and upgraded amenities, Villa Florence will keep you connected to home.

Location is perfect for Union Square and bart access right at Powell Street. 1. Check in was ok and we were given a free beer, wine and Danish coupon which was nice IF we were able to use them. We were there for 1 night. 2. Room very small but it was clean. 3. Nice big tv probably about 55 inch which did not work. I called front desk and they advised they would send some one up to check out. This was around 1845. We went to Concert and arrived back at hotel around 1045. 4. Bar was still open and hubby wanted to get his free beer. I wasn't feeling well so I didn't want the free wine. There were several customers in the bar finishing their drinks but he was told. Sorry! Bar is closed. How long does it take to pour a free beer in a to go cup if you are closed to appease the customer? 5. Made it back to room. Tv still didn't work. Made call again to front desk around 2300 and he once again said he would contact maintenance. Really? Its almost midnight. Advised him to just notate in his records that TV in room 316 does not work. No customer service and lacking communication. Checked out the next day and of course it was too late to use free Danish voucher. I would not stay again however location is perfect.

Boutique hotel?! People, let's get real. This is an old apartment building converted into a way over priced place to stay. Bed and pillows were cheap and really uncomfortable, shower pressure was non-existent and water got luke warm at best. BEWARE of hidden fees tacked on - over 80$ worth of fees a day including their "resort fee" of 30$ per day- what a joke. I asked what this specific fee included and the GM said it was for the bottle of water they gave us upon arrival as well as the "coupon for a free coffee". I suppose that resort fee also included the jackhammering and construction going on outside my window until 11PM, too?! Bring your earplugs because you hear EVERYTHING outside - construction, garbage trucks, people yelling...the website paints a very different image of the hotel - false advertising!

We chose this hotel because of the location, near where we were attending a conference. You cannot get dropped off on Powell, so you'll have to run a gauntlet of sometimes aggressive homeless in order to catch your Uber on O'Farrell. The front desk clerks were nice, and check in was fine. I do not understand why we are charged a $29 guest amenity fee (+ a 14% guest amenity fee tax on top of that) for a hotel with no discernible amenities to speak of. The room seemed clean and looked nice, but once we turned on the air-conditioner we could not turn it off again. The linens were thin and I ended up sleeping in a sweater. The bathroom. Ugh. There is not enough room in the bathroom to change your mind. There is zero counter space because they chose to put in a wide pedestal style sink. I had to set my make up bag IN the sink in order to use items and see in the mirror at the same time. (FYI the lighting in the bathroom has a green tint to it - you're going to want to check your face near a window before leaving to make sure your make-up looks ok.) There are a few towel bars in the bathroom but only one hook. There is literally no place except for the closed toilet seat to place any of your clothing or personal items while you're using the bathroom. All that said, the people were pleasant, but they don't necessarily know what they're doing when it comes to guest experience and it seems that they are a little inconsistent about their policies and procedures. (ex: in the bar on a Tuesday they told someone they couldn't get a drink or food after 10, the next night we were told we couldn't get any food after 9:45 - it was 9:47 when we asked to order an appetizer...)

I was traveling on business with my room being paid on a company credit card. I put my debit card on file for all other charges. They stated they would do a pre authorization of $100 no problem. Here's is how the charges happened. Day 1 $142.00 Day 2 $243.00 Day 3 $343.00. I checked out 4 days ago and am waiting for these to be removed from my account. Cute boutique hotel, great location, pleasant staff.

Positives : -great location - nice rooms Negatives: - NO Hot water I called front desk at 10 pm ( once I discovered I couldn’t even turn in the hot water in my sink, and my shower had lake warm temp at its highest temp after running for 10 min) They told me they would send someone to check it out... no one ever came. I called them 40 min later- they wouldn’t even pick up the phone. Given it was late and I was exhausted I just quit in it and fell asleep. - in the morning as I was checking out and asked why no one ever came to fix The problem- they just said they are sorry. The owners of hotel need to change the management it is the worst I have seen in a very long time!!!! Wouldn’t recommend staying - as you pay $200+ for no amenities....
