We booked this hotel for an overnight stay while celebrating a milestone birthday. The weather was phenomenal and the hotel was within walking distance of Union Square and other shopping. The room was spacious although the bathroom was not. We were on the Historic side of the hotel since we needed a little more room. Unfortunately, the room faced the...

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of September in the Historic Section in a double room. We were very happy with our room and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was an added bonus and was very nice - it really made you feel like you were on holidays. Its location was very convenient right near Macy's...

We originally had booked at the Fairmont however after finding out that we could get a discount at the Handlery through my niece's college we decided to save some money and book. We were surprised to find that the hotel was actually closer to Union Square than other well known hotel chains. We were even given an upgrade to a...

Nice and clean lobby with a very nice elegant feel to it. The rooms are slightly small, but it's San Francisco and rooms are small. The rooms were clean, nice furniture, and anything I would need. My room window did overlook another building that was relatively close, but closing the blinds gave me privacy. The location can't be beat. the...

Spent two nights in October 2013. The staff are courteous, pleasant and vethery helpful. Our room was so quiet just the way we requested. We stayed in the historic building. The room was decorated in a modern fashion yet still had the old fashioned touches. Right in the heart of the city. Thank you to the wonderful staff at The...

Stayed in a queen room in the historic building. The photos on the website give a false impression of the space and light in these rooms - we were first given a very small room on the 5th floor overlooking the generators and other rooms just feet away. There was very little natural light and no privacy with the blinds...

I stayed at the Handlery with a group of friends from New Zealand. This was the only hotel on our trip that had adjoining rooms ready for us when we arrived. Thank you. The Conceirge was fantastic in helping us find a restaurant when I met with another group of friends that would accomodate ten people. The rooms were great,...

The hotel is in a good location in Union Square. We luckily had one of the rooms with double glazing which did help with the down town noise. We also had a little balcony to sit on which was a bonus. Ironically I asked for a quiet room at check-in and the clerk gave us one right next to the...
