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.

I got in early and they had a room available for me before the official check in time. It was so nice to be able to relax a bit before setting out to explore the city. The location is close to everything. Wonderful hotel and location.
