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 dark woods, rich navy and gold accents, 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. There are two suites within the hotel, including the Rooftop Garden Suite, which has its own private terrace, a wet bar and living room.

Some rooms overlook the hotel’s heated outdoor pool within the courtyard. Guests also 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-Manson Cable Car lines and within a five-minute walk of a BART rail station.
