This is a central location and easy walking distance to most sights. The staff is friendly and efficient. The room was very clean however the bed was lumpy and hard. I had asked for a quiet room but was kept up until 10:00 because of the live street music outside my window. I needed sleep for business activities but didn't... More

The location had a ton of fun things to do nearby. Rooms were clean with modern look. Took a quick trolley close-by to the Warf and Pier 39. Small fridge in the rooms. The street is blocked except for drop-offs and valet and that was a bit confusing, but other than that everything was good. I would stay there again.

We were three days in San Francisco. The Villa Florence was very good overall. Very friendly staff, always helpful. Fast and easy check-in and check-out. It has also a top location for sightseeing, shopping, dining etc. We highly recommend the hotel.

Long flight here. I arrived in Union Square after a long taxi ride and fell asleep in the cab. They knew me at the hotel but there was confusion over the rate. It sure doesn't feel like you're checking into a hotel that is costing your company nearly £500 quid a night. The elevators are dark, creaky, slow. The room... More

Great location no doubt but, so many things not so great with this hotel. Beds and pillows terribly uncomfortable, coffee we had to call to the room daily due to house keeping staff no reason filling the coffee service, amenities in the shower were empty upon arrival, terrible smell on the 7th floor that was really unbearable as well as...

We loved the location of this hotel. The room was exactly as pictured..comfortable bed..nice view..large modern TV..bathroom a little small but clean and modern fixtures. All the staff were very helpful and have a nice attitude which shows good training and management. We will use this hotel when we return.

Full disclosure-I stay here often. The Villa Florence is a great place. It is not the Ritz and it has a lot of age in it's bones, but for those who like a more continental flair and some character this is the place. We stayed in a Junior Suite this time and it is an excellent choice. The price is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
