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.

I book the room through a third-party website for a business trip and paid in full in advance. After the stay, I realize there was further amenity fee and health care surcharge. They didn't disclose the charge in advance when you book through other website. Room is dirty. Cablecar station right outside of the window so you know how noisy it is.

Great location - Powell Bart Station, Union Square is just a couple of minutes' walk. Convenient to talk bart from airport to hotel. Walking distance to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf too. Room - Awful. Was given 419 and greeted with urine smell the moment we stepped in. Changed to 421 which was slightly better. However, we later realized the whole of level 4 smells bad once we got out of the lift. We even bought a bar of soap from Lush opposite the hotel to leave in the room to let the smell lingers on. Service - Unique at Front Desk and the chinese man helping with the airport shuttle were helpful. Housekeeping - Disaster. We forgot to leave the SERVICE tag on the door knob and our room was not cleaned when we returned to our room. Bath Towels - They were not absorbent (quality issue?) and we had to use the hand towels to clean our body. In such, look elsewhere!

If you’re there to shop, the union square location is perfect. But you need to be aware that the trade off is is the smell of urine, excrement,cigarettes and pot outside your hotel entrance. Homeless people asleep blocking the streets night til morning. Hotel service is atrocious. They suspended housekeeping blaming the corona virus. The few housekeeping that’s left entered my room at 8 am without even knocking on check out day. They charge an amenity fee that covers WiFi and the gym. I used neither. You’re not made aware of this fee until check out.

Dear rbrep, Thank you so much for your recent visit to San Francisco. I am sorry you found the area to be off-putting, we do have regular street cleaning, but there is a real homeless issue here in SF that the city is working to combat. We know we need to do more to help the situation. We are sorry to hear the stoppage of stay over service left a negative impression. This very difficult decision was made in light of the recent outbreak and is a measurable action to reduce exposure to our guests and hotel staff. Our entire hotel portfolio has adopted this measure as a safeguard to guests and our most valuable asset - our people. I do apologize if this left a negative impression. I personally signed a letter that we have circulated, I do ask for hotel guests with concerns to contact me directly during the stay if you had questions or required service, we will complete service, but we have the team entering the rooms and doing a light pick up with sanitation measures taken to reflect a service that will limit their exposure as well as yours. I am sorry if this was not acceptable to you, please let me know if I can do anything at this time, we do appreciate your feedback and we will all be very happy when the threat of Corona Virus is over. We take the safety and security of everyone very seriously, I am more than happy to discuss directly. Thank you, Andrea Murray, CHA General Manager amurray@villaflorence.com

I'll spare you the details of the dirty room, filthy shower, windows that didn't lock, super lumpy bed, broken TV, etc.. Just look elsewhere near the Hyatt or Marriott near Union Square and don't stay here!

Went to find a hotel room near union square. Got this offer for Villa Florence and the price was great - so I booked it. Got there and was put in a tiny room. Bed, dresser, chair no desk, no space, tiny room. Two windows that looked out onto a wall 20 inches away and a dark airshaft. Technically they were windows, but I would have classified this as a windowless room. Shower had water restrictors in place that meant showering in a trickle of water. To put it simply - I got what I paid for. Paid almost nothing - got the same.

Dear JT959, Thank you so much for your recent stay and review of the Villa Florence. We are glad you came to stay with us but are sorry that you found this to be a be a small room. We do have a range of room types and it does sound like a Queen room which is our smallest room type available at a lower rate than the other rooms. I do apologize you found the room to be too small for you. We will be sure to address the shower if you can send more information on the room you were in to my email. I would appreciate it. I would reach out directly, but this platform is completely anonymous. Thank you again and we do apologize. Thank you! Andrea Murray, CHA amurray@villaflorence.com
