The Deal

TOP 20 - Sells out quickly! Book by Mar 1

Less than two blocks from San Francisco's Union Square, this "cool, funky" hotel ( drops rates as much as 45% for weekend travel through June. 

  • $168 per night ... many Thursdays-Sundays March-June
  • Surrounding dates in February and November-December are also discounted
  • Waived nightly facility fee covers Wi-Fi and other services (reg. $20; will be waived at hotel)

Why We Love It

  • Less than two blocks from Union Square and less than 10 minutes on foot from Market Street -- two of the city's main shopping zones
  • Guests highlight the friendly staff and moody rooms
  • Great transit connections for exploring: within a couple blocks of the cable car to Fisherman's Wharf, the streetcar to the Castro and the BART train to the airport
  • The central location draws lots of tourists, though street noise does sneak into rooms at most hotels around here


San Francisco's Union Square earns its reputation for being a major shopping hub with flagship stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Macy's and Nike -- all within walking distance of Hotel Diva. BART, cable cars and buses are all within a couple blocks of the property, granting access to other areas of the city. It's a lively area, and street noise sometimes follows you back to your room, so it's best to pack earplugs.

Outside the hotel, walk along the "Diva Sidewalk of Fame," which displays signatures of celebrity guests. Rooms are modern and moody, though dimly lit and can be a bit small -- common in this part of town. All rooms have air conditioning and windows that open for some fresh air. 

An evening happy hour serves free Cosmopolitan shots from 5-7 p.m. Delicious Mexican food can be found at Colibri Mexican Bistro, located in the lobby of the hotel. Room delivery can be ordered from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Inquire when booking about pet-friendly rooms, additional fees and certain restrictions. On-site valet is available for $55 per day. 

From the press:

  • "Many guests have commented positively on the rooms' cool decor, cleanliness, and comfortable beds, but have been unimpressed by their small size" --

Bathroom needed some updating. Room was very small. Walls were very thin, you could here everything all night long.

Location and the suite was spacious
Other Comments
Had to wait over an hour to get car from valet to leave. The second couple in our suite had to wait 2 hours because they screwed up the valet ticket. It was noon on New Year’s Day, so it was a bit crazy. But, that is unacceptable.

staff was very friendly and helpful. the ambience in the room was good and comfortable EXCEPT the room was cold but when we used the heat we found that we were very congested and coughing. Maybe the filters need to be cleaned? The hallways need a good repaint (they are dark) and some new carpeting would really lighten up the ambience.

The location.
Other Comments
I had to keep the window shades down the whole time so people couldn't see what I was doing, so the room was quite dark. I prefer light in the room. Also there was a large door with a mirror propped up against the wall (not connected to anything). If there had been an earthquake it could have fallen on someone.

The staff was really friendly and the cocktail hour was nice. I really loved how close to Union Square the hotel was.
Other Comments
The rooms were just okay (scarce décor) and the bathroom was very small. It wasn't very warm or welcoming.
