Owner description: A shopper's paradise, this bustling square near the theater district has everything from upscale department stores and boutiques to discount houses. After a $25-million facelift in 2002, the cosmopolitan hub boasts a huge amphitheater, granite pedestals on which street entertainers perform and a tree and flower-lined environment in which to enjoy an espresso or an elegant meal.

“Good for Night Life”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

During the day, it's just an area with overpriced stores, but at night this place comes alive. It's crawling with people out and about looking for a good time.

“The hub for food and shopping”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Union square is amazing place to start your day in San Francisco. Name it and you will find it there. Shopping malls, tons of cafes and restaurants . Brands are in every corner . Actually this is the women paradise . Also you can get the famous cable car from there. And every other area in San Francisco is reachable from this area. So my advice is to get a hotel in this area you will save yourself lots of time and money as well.

“Great square”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This is a great square, even if you go here just for people watching. Squares like this are what make communities and this is what gives San Francisco so much of its character. It is something not to be missed on a trip to the city.

“Love it!!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Union square is a great spot. You can sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a coffee at the bakery shop and enjoy the architecture of the surrounding buildings
