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.

  • "Many guests have commented positively on the rooms' cool decor, cleanliness, and comfortable beds, but have been unimpressed by their small size" --

"The room was very clean. Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. Location is great - centrally located downtown and close to BART station. Starbucks on one side and a fantastic Mexican restaurant (Colibri) on the other side. We literally ate at Colibri 3 nights in a row -- if you go, make sure you order their guacamole, served with fresh corn tortillas. Some of the best Mexican food I've ever had and the cocktails are equally delicious (and strong)."

The room was basic but clean and relatively comfortable. We asked for a higher floor and they accommodated our request, putting us on 7. Unfortunately, the view out our window was of a brick wall, but it meant the room was very quiet. We had requested in advance that the down pillows be removed because of my husband's allergy - once via TravelZoo and a second time when I called the day before check-in, yet our room still had down pillows when we arrived. Front desk staff were friendly and accommodating though and after a call downstairs, the housekeeping staff were there within minutes to replace them. I personally found the mattress to be way too firm for my liking but my husband was ok with it. Also, several of the non-down pillows they replaced the others with were extremely hard. Of all the ones they brought, there were only 2 we were able to sleep halfway comfortably on. AC units are very loud and require you to constantly adjust volume of TV if you're watching while it's on.

I enjoyed the location and the ease of check-in/check-out. The room was nice and modern. No view but that was expected. Valet was $55 which appeared to be about average for hotels in the area. However, I did not realize that parking was not included, so be prepared to pay for it.
