“Perfect Honeymoon”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Just wanted to say Thank you to Ann and Omar. They worked very hard to make our honeymoon effortless and enjoyable. While the Inn is smaller and not as well appointed as bigger hotels, they more than make up for it with service and atmosphere. From the evening wine receptions to the warm cookies each night you feel like your staying with friends or relatives. I would highly recommend the Inn and will definitely stay there again.

What a lovely little boutique hotel. We stayed here for the couple of nights we were in San Francisco and could not have been more pleased with our choice. We choose the hotel based on the reviews on this site and we loved it. The staff were second to none, the room was great, some people have said the rooms are small but by UK standards they are pretty big. The cheese and wine served between 5 & 7 was a beautiful touch and gave us a chance to meet others. We did not have a view from the room but I did not expect one so no disappointment there. The continental breakfast was perfect for what we needed. Whilst the selection is not vast the choices have been well thought out. The hotel is very centrally located which makes it even more appealing. The morning paper was left outside the room each morning, chocolates left of the pillow at night. The attention to detail that this hotel offers makes it a truly exceptional find. If you have any queries I would be happy to help if I can

More like you find in Europe but a great location and snappy service make this a great stay. They gladly stored our luggage and phoned us when the room was ready. We were in room 401, on the front street but noise was not a problem because the sleeping area is in the back and the LR is on the street. A nice Conti B'fast is set up on each floor, so if you are leaving early (we did), just go up to the 6th floor as they start there and work their way down. Not cheap (we paid $400 plus) but the taxes are huge so grin and bear it. You will enjoy your stay.

Room 205
The hotel is everything everyone writes about. The staff were great, and the rooms were really nice. We had a jr king suite which is a little roomier and I'm sure without that, it could have been a little crowded, but it was really nice. The view not so good, but who wants to waste time looking out a window. When I looked at the google map picture prior to arrival, I was a little worried about the size of the place, but the stay was well worth it. Only 30 rooms but everyone we spoke to there, loved the place as much as we did

First, it has the most comfortable beds and pillows we've ever had In a hotel. Besides that, everything else was super--the free breakfast had great selections--cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, cinnamon buns, boiled eggs, yogurt,jam, coffee, tea. The nightly wine and cheese was super--great chance to meet and chat with others from all over the world, which you don't do at other hotels. Every night, home made cookies were set out on each floor--was a really nice touch as well.

The innkeeper, Wayne, joined the wine and cheese night, which was very enjoyable. His recommendations for dinners, etc were super and greatly appreciated. 2 free bottles of water every evening in the room was a nice touch. Also free wifi.

Can't say enough good things. The location was super. Staff were all very friendly and looked very happy to be there. Although the hotel has the smallest doorway and lobby I have ever seen, it is a wonderful place. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Jr king suite had separate sitting area, which made it much roomier.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September after reading all the great reviews on here. We were certainly not disappointed in any way.
I will not go into the details that other have but just add how pleasant we found this place to be.
Breakfast was such a nice way to start the day, we were talking to visitors from Australia and Canada one morning bringing a very Commonwealth feel to the occassion.
Ann and Omar were a joy to have around as there knowledge was invaluable in helping us to enjoy San Francisco.
Can not think of any negative points at all. A very enjoyable stay. Many thanks.

Room Tip: We asked for a higher room as we had heard that lower floors could be a little dark if they were fac...

All the reviews are right. We loved this small hotel only steps away from Union Square. All the staff are so friendly, particularly Ann and Omar on the front desk. We were delayed a lot getting to SF and my email between fights letting them know was speedily replied to by Omar. When our luggage finally arrived, we were given a lovely letter, bottle of sparkling wine and chocs although it hadn't been the notes problem. The evening wine and cheese was a great opportunity to meet other guests and share experiences of home and SF. Couldn't have asked for better service.

If you are looking for change from the big hotel groups, I would highly recommend The Inn at Union Square.
The hotel has an old world charm and very personnel fell about it. All of the staff are very helpful, thank you very much. The rooms are spacious with a pleasant decor (personal taste), bathroom a bit on the small size but more than usable.
A great touch was the 5.30pm wine and cheese, you get to meet other guest in a casual atmosphere, breakfast is also very relaxed, you do not get this feel in a large hotel. The location is fantastic, easy walk to the main shops, transport, restaurants and bars.
I will be staying again on my next visit to SF
