With a history that dates back to 1908, Handlery Union Square has a colorful and long past - being family owned for more than four generations. In recognition of this, the hotel has placed together a unique package - stay in its Historic Section rooms which showcases preserved architecture, or stay in its Premier Section rooms with upgraded amenities.

Historic rooms feature charming Victorian design with contemporary décor and sophistication, plus modern necessities like flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, minifridges and free Wi-Fi. The large Premier rooms have expansive views of the hotel’s pool and San Francisco’s skyline, as well as luxuries like illuminated vanities, plush bathrobes and weekday newspapers.

Guests will gain access to the hotel’s fitness center and enjoy special privilege to reserve a private sauna through the concierge. The made-from-scratch California cuisine served at the on-site Daily Grill has been popular with guests and locals since the 1930s and is a can’t-miss for today’s travelers.

The hotel is located half a block away from the Geary Street stop from both the Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason Cable Car lines and within a five-minute walk of a BART rail station.

The room was clean. We had a balcony which looked across to the older part of hotel. Not a nice look at all. I rather have stayed in a room that overlooked the street.
