My husband and I stayed here for 10 nights over Christmas 2012. We had booked a king room and a queen room, but when we arrived discovered we had been upgraded to two suites at no extra charge.

That says something in and of itself. We stayed in August for a small segment of our honeymoon, which I noted when I booked the room. When...

The Inn at Union Square knows how to treat its' patrons. Each staff member is friendly, courteous and eager to help.

We recently stayed at the Inn during a wedding weekend and enjoyed our experience. The nightly wine and cheese gatherings and the continental breakfast in a "parlor" setting were quite nice. Very convenient for shopping. The entire staff was quite pleasant and helpful. I would recommend getting a suite for the added space.
