This place is just magical... My wife and I were commenting that the management has done a terrific job of instilling a consistent sense of pride in every employee, from maids to front desk to bartenders. Our room was the one-bedroom suite, and it was massive. Our family of four could live there indefinately! The front desk, specifically Jeff and Phil, bent over backwards to help us, and despite the classiness of the hotel there was zero snootiness about it. It's not a big-brand type experience, but if you like a unique, quaint, character-rich boutique, this is the one!

Me and my family stayed here earlier this month, we had heard about its great location, and were certainly happy to find out union square was just round the corner. The rooms if i must say, were a little small, but for a boutique hotel and family of four we did not mind.

All our requests were taken care of staright away as our shower had a slight leek but was working perfectly well by the time we had returned to the hotel, i had a great stay here :)

This was our first Hotel stop on our 18day Road Trip. Although very quirky we really enjoyed the atmosphere here. The Library bar was very nice place and we even enjoyed a LIVE Jazz singer before going out one night. We had a free glass of wine on arrival but we only had one of them. The Barman was very attentive and even reminded me I still had my other glass of wine to have the next day. Breakfast was 'nice' not brilliant but adequate. It was also exactly the same on the two mornings we ate there. Would have been nice to have some different selections. All in all I would recommend this Hotel. Very good location and very near to Union Square.

My wife and I stayed in the Rex on the first part of our honeymoon, and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel! The hotel is very well presented, clean and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
We had a room on the top floor which was a decent size and was clean and fresh. It was also quiet at night so we got a good night's sleep.
The lobby bar offers a free glass of wine every evening for guests which we gladly accepted each evening. If you want a bite to eat then the bar also offers a selection of meals which were delicious from the ones we tried.
The hotel is also in a great location; only one block from union square. Also if you want to take the cable car down to the warf then the stop is just down the street.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough. If you're thinking of a trip to San Fran then definitely give this hotel a visit. You won't be disappointed!
Hope to be back soon to see Max the pug! Thanks for everything

Adam & Charlotte

We have stayed at the Rex many times for short getaways from Sacramento. On several occasions we've introduced friends and family to the hotel because it is consistently good. The staff is very helpful, the ambience is charming and their pet friendly approach is delightful. This stay they let a young band spontaneously play in the lounge .... One that is on the professional circuit and was just a great treat for guests. How many hotels woul do that? The Rex is our favorite and we can't recommend it highly enough. Our schnauzer ruby echoes these sentiments but in the ancient language of Dawg.
