Why We Love This Hotel

  • Heated outdoor pool is open year-round
  • Small, private sauna is available by appointment
  • Some rooms have views of the pool or cityscape from private balconies


Guests are surrounded by history when staying at the Handlery Union Square. The hotel is half a block from Union Square and located within a renovated building dating back to 1908. Family-owned for more than four generations, the hotel showcases its past with the option to book Historic Section rooms, which have preserved architecture, in addition to its Premier Section rooms, which feature upgraded amenities.

Historic rooms feature charming Victorian design with contemporary décor & 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 have access to the hotel’s fitness center and can 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 half a block from the Geary Street stop for both the Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason Cable Car lines and within a five-minute walk of a BART rail station.

NICE room, though totally without a view, but it was quiet, spacious and well-appointed, with a comfy bed. The hotel is a half block from Union Square, near transportation and a lot of other good stuff. Cordial & helpful staff. We'll stay there again.

The restaurant was by far the best part of the hotel. I’d recommend the restaurant but not the hotel. The food was INCREDIBLE!!!
Other Comments
The room was tiny, the “view” was of a closed in ally. I would’ve paid extra for a better view if I had been given the option.

Excellent location, right next to Union Square. Easy to get in and out of hotel to shopping, restaurants, etc. The rooms in the newer section are big and more spacious. Front staff is super friendly.

Building is older, but the rooms are updated in the newer section. The location is awesome.
