"Design-centric interiors provide a dash of art-deco-by-way-of-Egypt" -- Fodor's

Why We Love It

  • Idyllic Powell Street address, one block from Market Street
  • Steps from shopping, restaurants, BART and the cable car turnaround
  • The hotel's style is art deco meets classic San Francisco
  • Mingle at the evening happy hour featuring live music


Its central Union Square location makes this hotel a great jumping off point for exploring all of the shops in the area, experiencing fine dining or going to the theater to see a show. With a Powell Street address, the property is the perfect location for hopping on the cable car or other public transit options (BART and Muni) to take on San Francisco.

Despite being over 100 years old, Hotel Union Square has a contemporary and stylish vibe with red accents and modern decor. Being that it is in the heart of the city, it can get a bit noisy in the evening hours. Though the hotel does not have a restaurant or bar, there are plenty of options to choose from within walking distance.

At the end of the day, venture to the complimentary evening wine hour to hear the soothing sounds of an acoustic guitar player.

From the press:
  • "The lobby gives voice to San Francisco's noir era (appropriate, as Dashiell Hammett once lived here), and it lures visitors to enjoy live music during wine hour" -- Fodor's

This hotel is historic, which I love--exposed brick, beautiful staircases, yet modern rooms! Jazz and wine in the lobby in the evening. Perfect location, a few short blocks from Union Square!

Window screens are needed as there were none and there's a large gap around the door so the light shined through all night making it difficult to sleep at times.
