Overview

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:
  • "The lobby gives voice to San Francisco's noir era (appropriate, as Dashiell Hammett once lived here), and it lures visitors to enjoy live music during wine hour" -- Fodor's

the central location was great
Other Comments
the hotel is heated with old-fashioned radiators, which we could not turn off. our room was impossibly hot and stuffy, and there was no A/C. We asked at the front desk if anything could be done and they said someone else had also mentioned/complained that it was too hot. But the heat never went off. There was also not a ventilation fan in the bathroom, so when you took a shower, it was hot and steamy in the room like a jungle. A very basic hotel with very very few amenities, but the location was ideal.

The central location is great. It's right next to the end of the cable car route and dining, shopping and entertainment are all just a short walk away.

Upgrading to a bigger room is well worth it. For just a few dollars more, we had a luxurious corner room, with room enough to entertain our traveling companions.
