Excellent location and the service was great. The concierge Tom was very helpful in planning our daily excursions. Would stay here again.

Small room.. $55 parking fee..noisy..
This hotel was booked for two of my relatives. Valet parking was $55....quite a lot for a one night stay. Charged a $15 facility fee even though we didn't use any. Good location but loud. The room was also quite small. AC did not work properly. Lock on the door was broken.

Very Good8.0
Hotel is great, area a little sketchy
Lovely little character hotel! Great location for shopping and restaurants but a lot of homeless in this area and we found the city itself quite dirty/smelly. Ignoring the outside, the hotel was clean and had a nice, free, happy hour in the lobby, but no bar. Friendly staff and comfy beds. Very close to all shops and tons of restaurants, it was so convenient so would stay here again. The convenience fee was annoying, especially considering the gym was at another hotel!

Excellent location and service
Really happy with the hotel. Room was spacious and clean. Location is great for shopping around Union Square and access to all the key neighborhoods. Straight shot from the airport on the BART and half a block to the hotel.

Hotel Union Square, San Francisco
location is great, everything else isn't
The hotel's located in the heart on iconic SF area. The outside appearance is quite reasonable, and the inside décor does show elements of creativity. However, the bldg interior has not seen a major renovation in half-century. The room is very small, the window view was the fire-exit ladder & the opposite wall 2 m away. Overall, this is an experience of a (well-maintained) low-cost B&B with a price-tag of a premium 4-5* hotel (350 per night). The personnel was very courteous, though.
