"Great stay! Room was comfortable and big for San Francisco historic building. We stayed in newer “premier” side of hotel. Room was quiet and away from street noise. Clean room with attentive housekeeping staff. Location was great, just half block up from Union Square. Cost of parking garage hurt a little, but to be expected for parking in San Francisco. Extra bonus was the on-site dining at the Daily Grill. Great food, friendly staff and excellent service. We will certainly plan on staying at Handlery again."

Overview

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 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 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.

The hotel does not provide coffee in the lobby for early risers. I was told that I could buy coffee next door at Capital Grill.
Other Comments
The hotel and the room were fine. However, I’ve TV in the room was located on the side of the bed and to watch it you would have to lie on your side or sit on the side of the bed. Poor design.

The location of this hotel cannot be beat. You are steps from Macys, Westfield Center and all shopping in Union Square. We did receive an incredibly small room, although it did have 2 double beds, which were very comfortable. Staff were helpful and very accommodating.
