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.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

My room was not what I expected at all as in it was about half the size I was expecting. Thought I was getting two double beds, but it was just one double. So communicating the size of rooms is not quite right. I was too tired to ask the front desk after checking in. But it was

Quiet room. Very good location. Less expensive than the Hilton but a better hotel in every category. Union Square is within one block. This hotel is a nice combination between old and new. Definitely worth considering when staying in downtown SF.

My guess is that it depends on the type of room you have because I did not have a separate sitting area. I had a "double run of the house," which I thought meant 2 double beds, but quite the contrary. In fact, I had to close the bathroom door to open the door to the room at all.

If you are going to be on a lower floor, then you want a corridor that does not face out onto the street, particularly not toward Union Square, because it will be noisy. My recollection is that the 308, 309, 310 rooms are all going to be quiet, though please verify that when you make a reservation. By the by, Cafe Bellini is just next door and has excellent breakfast/lunch, though do expect seriously high prices (true of all Union Square area). Hope you have a wonderful time in SF!

Hi-I didn't realize there was a question pending-sorry for being so late on the reply. The Stockton-Sutter garage is about five blocks away, Union Sq parking is a block away. Both are expensive, as I'm sure you're aware. I believe the hotel also has valet parking or perhaps underground and I'm fairly certain it's significantly above that of the nearby garages. The only concern I've had was at Christmas last year: do not park above the 5th floor at the Sutter garage, as there is no patrolling and my friend's car was broken into. Hope this is helpful and, again, sorry for the lateness.

The room we stayed in was lovely. Not large but we were only there for one night so it didn't matter. The location is superb - walk out the door and you are almost in Union Square. There is no restaurant but you don't need one. San Francisco is full of restaurants very close by. You want to get out there and enjoy - not be stuck in the hotel. I would stay there again. The staff were very friendly and helpful - some of the best I have found in SFO. Good luck with whatever you decide
