"The hotel is in a historic building in a great location, walking steps from Union Square. The parking garage is separated from the main lobby and you have to walk a bit and take an elavator and a flight of stairs to get to it, but manageable if you don’t have a lot of luggage. I didn’t get to try out the pool but will definitely do it next time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and quiet. No extra frills so value was not what I expected but I think the price is due to the fantastic location. I walked everywhere from the hotel and everything was 10-15 minutes. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again myself."

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.

Clean, comfortable room, great location, definitely one of the best values in Union Square, but don't expect anything luxurious. It checks off all the boxes if you're looking for a reliable hotel in SF.

The room had a leak in it which caused my clothes to get wet. The hotel only took off parking charge of $50 to make amends. They offered to have my clothes dry cleaned but I needed to wear my clothing.
