"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. 

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" --

Hotel is conveniently located, staff very pleasant and helpful. A smart, Clean design of a fairly recent remodel makes for a nice ambience without being overwhelming. It was just what I was looking for - and at a reasonable price.

Couldn't get my UBER or LYFT to work in front of the hotel. Never figured out why - but there are still a few taxis around so not a big problem. SF is not as walkable as it once was so this is important.

We went to Htel Diva with another couple, both couples using the same promotion. Their room was on the 7th floor, larger, with two windows an a lot of light. Our much smaller room was on the 4th floor, with a window out to the stairwell and very dark and gloomy. So, check out the rooms first!

The location is excellent. They also had complimentary cosmo shots at 5pm--an unexpected treat.

I was surprised by the damage deposit charged as we checked in. The room itself was very small and a bit dreary in decor.

the coffee bar was nice, the shower was nice and tall with good water pressure and plenty of hot water.

The rooms are dim and dingy(not like in the picture and no flowers), a/c unit hanging from window, outside of window has not been cleaned in 10 yrs, if ever. The closet is about 1 foot deep and the door for the closet is a row of beads. The toilet paper is in a very awkward spot and it has a type of cover over it which makes it hard to use. I did not get to sleep very much at all because we were given a street view room. I was awaken by sirens twice, car alarm, people yelling/fighting several times. garbage trucks? I lost count of the times I was woke up. We were hit up by pan handlers entering and exiting the hotel
