Why We Love It

  • Just five minutes away from Union Square, located on the Powell Street cable car line
  • The hotel's style is art deco meets classic San Francisco
  • Sip on complimentary morning coffee in the lobby and mingle at the evening happy hour featuring live music

"Design-centric interiors provide a dash of art-deco-by-way-of-Egypt" -- Fodor's

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.

Desit being over 100 years old, the hotel 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 noisey 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.

Guests can sip free coffee in the lobby each morning before setting off take on the city sights. 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

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.

Website indicated 2 twin beds, but hotel were out of two beds. We settled for 1 queen bed. Travelzoo website needs to be clear on what you get.
