Overview

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 theatre 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. Although 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.

As it’s so difficult to find affordable lodging in SF I still recommend this hotel. It’s affordable (ish) but the rooms I encountered did not warrant even the Travelzoo price. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is good.
Other Comments
Coffee pods (kuerig) never replenished. Initially given a room that was really hot and stuffy (room 420 king bed). Room didn’t have thermostat, fan or a/c. Requested another room with an air system. Was assigned room 407 which I do not recommend at all. Room had a window a/c unit but BOTH control knobs were broken. Could NOT change fan speed or temperature. Spent a very uncomfortable 3 nights. Also, room was downgraded from king to 2 doubles. Window shade did not cover the full window so there was light shining in the room all night.

Communicate with house cleaning about needs of room occupants. Our room had two adults but had to call down every day for a second towel and washcloth. Buts was always delivered promptly.

The hotel room we had the first night was on the 3rd floor overlooking Powell St and the cable cars. Throw in a few drunks and a couple homeless and there was no sleeping. Next day ask staff to move and they moved us to a quiet room. Staff was helpful and both rooms were clean. Biggest problem was apparently Travelzoo staff never booked our room as they had NO RECORD. They did honor our price. But this could have been a disaster. Travelzoo you dropped the ball

the central location was great
Other Comments
the hotel is heated with old-fashioned radiators, which we could not turn off. our room was impossibly hot and stuffy, and there was no A/C. We asked at the front desk if anything could be done and they said someone else had also mentioned/complained that it was too hot. But the heat never went off. There was also not a ventilation fan in the bathroom, so when you took a shower, it was hot and steamy in the room like a jungle. A very basic hotel with very very few amenities, but the location was ideal.
