“Great girls weekend shopping”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was my 2nd visit to Hotel Diva. The location is perfect for shopping at Union Square, within walking distance to BART and across from Curran Theatre. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We got into the city before check-in time and they had rooms available so we were able to check-in early. The rooms are small but they are clean and cozy, they offer some sake & champagne in the lounge during the evening. Perfect after a long day of shopping.

There is a Starbucks right next door and a Mexican restaurant on the other side. There is even a "walk of fame" in front of the hotel with the signatures & handprints of some famous "divas".

Always a great stay at the Hotel Diva, will definitely be back!

I often stay in San Francisco and like Boutique Hotels ONLY !!!
Don't care for the big chain hotels.
This is by far my favorite and most affordable based on the other hotels around.
Super clean , Cozy for a HOT date and most romantic !!!
Staff super friendly and professional .
I love the Saki in the early evening and the Perrier water at the front desk.
I always recommend this hotel to many of my out of town friends .

Room Tip: I like the rooms facing the street Noisy but lots of light . For quiet room ask for back room.

I have been all over the world and in the travel industry for 30years. I was going to stay at the Westin since I am a starwood member but the prices were so high for the weekend I was going. A friend found a low price and some great reviews and photos of this hotel and told me to check it out. It looked great and the price was right so I gave it a try..

I was impressed from the moment we arrived. The Hotel Diva was ultra modern and very clean, I loved the lobby and that it was connected to a starbucks didn't hurt either! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. All of their suggestions for sightseeing and jazz clubs were excellent. We had both been to SFO before but this experience was different...The Diva just felt so in style with the city. The room was just right and the bed was very comfortable. The other guests we saw came from all over the world..switzerland..etc..and they were so happy they chose this hotel as well.

It was so convienient to everything and in a safe area. If you want a classy clean modern hotel within walking distance of all of Union Square...this is it!!!

Great location, walking distance to theater, union square, and cable car station. Many restaurants within walking distance too.
Old hotel, so rooms are small, but clean and unique. Many celebraties stay here, so you might see one.
Across the street is a restaurant with a Great breakfast!

What can I say about Hotel Diva?? We were a little sceptical when we arrived in San Francisco but once we entered our hotel and were greeted by the friendly reception staff we were soon put at ease. Our room was gorgeous and absolutely spotless. The complimentary bath products were lovely. The bathroom was a tad small but big enough for what we needed and the shower was great.
The best thing about the room was the bed. I have never slept in such a comfortable bed. The mattress wasn't too firm but not soft either, the pillows were i believe feather and the duvet was very cosy. Each member of the staff we spoke to, whether it be at the reception desk or cleaning staff in the halls, were extremely polite and helpful.
Although the view from our window was of the roof we could see Macy's and could see the star rotating and all lit up at night. The entire hotel is well kept and very modern. It's in a great location as is 2 blocks from Union Square which has shops to die for, i.e. Macys etc. From there you can get transport to pretty much anywhere in San Francisco so the location of the hotel is brilliant.
All in all, we loved our stay at Hotel Diva and would recommend it to anyone and would most definitely return if we ever visit San Francisco again.
Thank you Hotel Diva for making the start of my first trip to America a pleasant one!

The Diva description on the web promised style and personality and delivers. The service at the desk was warm,quick and professional.
The rooms are small but stylishly modern with an erotic feel down to the sexy graphics on the blinds.
The location is central but can be noisy at night.
Value for money represents a good deal.

Myself and 3 others stayed here at the beginning of September 2012. This was the beginning of a 17 day trip through America along the coast to Vegas. The location of this hotel is perfect. It's close to union square, with many shops and bars, but far enough away not to to be constantly disturbed by noise. My room which I shared with my fiancé was based at the rear of the hotel, which we were glad about when our companions in the next room, based at the front of the hotel, told us of the noise they had experienced during the night. The rooms were ideal. Big enough, extremely clean, comfortable beds and pillows. The staff were extremely pleasant, and we're always on hand to offer assistance when looking for places to go. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to take a trip to San francisco.
