"Sexy chic" -- Fodor's

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, though some found the lighting a bit too dim, and all hotels in this area are tight on space
  • 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
  • A central location that 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 the hotel. 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 ear plugs.

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.

The rooms were just okay (scarce décor) and the bathroom was very small. It wasn't very warm or welcoming.
