Handlery Union Square Hotel
Ranked #72 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Stayed in the Handerly in Feb 2014. Really great location. So central to downtown and union square. quiet near many bars and restaurants and perfect for shopping! Hotel itself is quiet nice, We stayed during the winter season, had some rain so we could not use the hotel to its fullest! Can just imagine having a quick swim in the hotels pool just before dinner! I would, however, book the renovated rooms, rather than the rooms in the historical section. Just decor is a bit better! Breakfast in the grill was fab too. Overall, would certainly return to the Handerly. Great hotel!

Fantastic central location to see sights, next to cable car route and a couple of blocks from the F streetcar line. Friendly front desk and Concierge staff, not snooty in the least. Daily Grill with breakfast attached so no need to go outside to eat. My room faces Geary street and has a King bed and plenty of space, washroom is compact, has a full walk-in closet.
They also provide ear plugs for those not use to city noise at night, a very nice touch!
I would stay here again

Stayed here on business in October 2013.
Bedroom was in the older part of the hotel and was clean and functional, nothing knock out but fine all the same. Wi-Fi was a good speed and FOC. Room cleaned well every day.
The location of the hotel is great 2 minutes to the start of the shops, Starbucks around the corner as well as a 24*7 Wal-Mart. Tram a 5-7 minute walk so that's great too.
Ate breakfast a few times in the restaurant attached to the hotel, good food and service if a little pricey for US breakfast places as a rule.
If you want central location and a functional hotel, this is for you, if you like a luxury hotel where you will spend some time in your room try elsewhere.
I will be staying here again in September when next there for business.

If location & comfort is what you are after, then look no further then Handlery Union Square Hotel in San Francisco! I stayed one night at the Premier Wing, the room was spacious, clean, nice amenity. Definitely will return to this lovely hotel near the future.

We arrived at the hotel at 8:30 pm and went to the room. There was an awful smell throughout and asked to change. The bell men came up and immediately changed our room. The rooms themselves are quite small. When my husband was working at the desk the only way to get around was to climb over the bed. Not a problem for us but definitely might be for others.

When attempting to shower the next morning, there was no hot water. We learned later that it was out in the entire hotel. Work was completed by the end of the day.

This hotel is in need of a facelift as the carpet is fraying and the wall paper is coming up a bit . The doorman hardly opened the door coming or going.I understand that there is a newer side and that may be entirely different.

The location was right off Union Square, which was convenient.

Stayed: February 2014

A great central location for your stay in San Francisco; however, please be aware that the majority of bedrooms face the two main roads and it is noisy. We upgraded our rooms after reading other reviews and although the room was fine, we had the road; lift and ice machine noise to contend with every night. Ensure you speak to the very helpful staff on arrival if sleeping in a noisy area is a problem.
Handlery Grill breakfast vouchers although only three options where great
Grey Line tours to Napa Vallery; Deluxe City Tour and Hop on Hop off bus where great. Kbush our driver on the first two trips was funny, informative, helpful and overall delivered fantast service
A great location which out ways the noise.
