Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

When booking our 4 night stay at The Handlery in San Francisco, we explained that it would be a holiday which is part of our honeymoon. They emailed back to congratulate us, and they said they will endeavour to make our stay even more special. On arrival, they upgraded us to the Executive Suite, and a bottle of wine, as well as a goody bag of treats was waiting for us! This far exceeded what we were expecting, and it kickstarted the most amazing experience in San Francisco. The location was perfect, and the hotel which was also fitted with a heated pool and a gym was immaculate and it all seemed to be going down well with other guests as well as ourselves. Thank you Handlery for a lovely experience :)

Hotel's Favourite
A lovely hotel just a few steps from Union Square. On arrival the staff greeted us cheerily , we needed to leave our luggage to take our car back this was handled swiftly by the young lady on reception & the security gentleman. Our room was a premier king with a balcony looking onto O' Farrell st which was lovely we had a beautiful sunny room with a sofa & chair to relax. I could see the cable cars going up Powell st from the balcony. The room was quiet (6th floor) . The bed was comfortable & it was nice to have a dressing area as well as a good bathroom with good pressure on the shower & instant hot water. All in all a very good hotel deserves more than 3 stars.

This hotel is in the perfect location, just a few yards from Union Square. The rooms are a decent size and the bed was very comfortable. The bathrooms are a bit dated but spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent.

Perfect location to explore the city, very comfortable, extremely helpful staff. A beautiful historical hotel in the center of San Francisco. The pool is a great place to start and end the day. I would recommend this hotel to everyone visiting San Francisco.

Good comfortable hotel with nice rooms and a lovely pool to relax. TV had rather poor reception and although the hotel is centrally located you have to be careful not to walk the “wrong way” out of the hotel as there is a dodgy area fairly close to the hotel. Go right out of the hotel towards Union Square and you’ll be fine though.

This hotel is just a couple of blocks away from Powell station, which means you can travel quickly and cheaply from the Airport to near enough the hotel. Staff very pleasant and quick to check you in. Hotel is a little bit dated, but to be honest was very clean and added to the quirkiest feel to it. Bed lovely and large, had to have a good couple of rolls over to hug my hubby. Towels and amenities well stocked. Did not have time to use the pool, due to only having 3 days in San Francisco. Cable car ride to Fishermans Wharf again only a couple of blocks away. Would I stay here again? Most definitely!

Absolutely loved this hotel right in the middle of the city. We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. Rooms were comfortable and well maintained, staff were friendly and helpful and it was really good value. We will stay again if we come back to the city.

Honeymoon travels wrote a review Jul 2022

After travelling up the pacific coast we made it to our final destination in San Fran, upon arrival we were extremely impressed after being greeted by a bottle of champagne and goodie bag for our honeymoon and also being upgraded to a lovely suite. The rooms were clean, very well sized and we were lucky enough to have a couch area to sit back and RELAX after our days wondering the hilly streets of San Fran. The shower was slightly dated but overall did the job and I left feeling clean. The staff in the hotel couldn’t do enough and made our final honeymoon stop very special. In terms of location, you are in the prime shopping area and can get cable carts to all the key tourist hot spots. You are a fairly long walk away from fisherman’s warf but we did it every day in 30 mins (it’s an interesting walk through China town, I suggest you avoid the massage parlours as they do charge you more than advertised being tourists). You can get an Uber to fisherman's for around $15. Food recommendations - Tony’s Pizza (book in advance or get a slice to go) and and the chowder hut at fisherman’s warf. Activities recommendations - Alcatraz (30 min walk from Handlery), Lombard street (20 min walk from Handlery) , bike over golden gate to Sausalito (we got bikes at fisherman’s warf, it’s the same price if you book on the day as if you book in advance) and wonder the streets (get those calf muscles working, you’ll need it). Also if you’re there on the 4th of July, go to the pier fo watch the fire works! In conclusion, San Fran rocked my crocks and I look forward to seeing the sunset city again. Thank you to Handlery and owner/manager of the hotel for acknowledging my honeymoon request and making the stay so special. Picture 1 - outside the hotel to the right. Picture 2- Arrival treat

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Handlery. Very clean and a fantastic location. We also loved the out door pool! Special mention to Laura, Elva, Loren and Delia who went above and beyond in helping us relocate my son’s lost mobile phone. Would definitely return if ever we are back in San Francisco
