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 theater 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. Though 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.

From the press:

Had a lot of trouble getting to the place. Both ways trying to enter the street where the hotel was was marked "do not enter". It took a long time to figure it out after a very long day. Room had no AC then they gave us keys to someone else's room & then they put us in a room with minimal AC.

Location and boutique feel of hotel.

Understand most individuals do not use a clock (vs. their phones ) these days but rooms should have one. May not meet minimal feel of decor of room. Cigarette butts outside room windows pushed into crevices unattractive and a turn-off.
