Excellent stay and he staff was very kind. Gregory was a delight. The beds are so comfortable and the amenities were just as great. Ideal location for a trip to SF. Our room was spacious and beautiful.

I stayed there for 5 nights, for a conference. The location is excellent, right next to Union Square and to metro lines, and the old trolley. The hotel staff is friendly. And the complimentary wine at the end of the day is great. The rooms are ok, at best. Small, old, and the bathroom entirely too small. Overall a nice... More

Dear Afcf_97, Thank you for taking the time of leaving a comment about your stay. I am very pleased that you liked our staff and the overall atmosphere of the hotel. On the other hand I am disappointed that your room did not meet your expectation, maybe one of our Executive King rooms would have better suited you. We hope... More

We had a good stay. Fantastic location near Powell and Market Cable Car turn-around and in vibrant Union Square area. Terrific transportation links. BART stop nearby as is Market St Trolleys which can also get you over to the Embarcadero/Fisherman's Wharf. Plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from. It is an older place but with plenty of character. It looked... More

My wife and I were looking for a hotel with more character than the usual chain, and the Hotel Union Square came through. It has great historical charm, wine tasting every evening, and the staff was great. With a trolley line out front and bus line only a block away it was easy to get around, and the ferry terminal...

Really cute hotel located in the heart of Union Square is a gem. When we checked in I mentioned I was a Perks Member but was told that since I made the reservation through Booking.com they could not add this stay toward my perks membership. However, the attendant did provide an upgrade to our room. We also checked in earlier... More

We arrived and loved the cool vibe and the location, we were very quickly checked in and given rooms. (the concierge here is awesome) We decided to just drop off luggage, and head to the ferry...

Hotel Union Square is decidedly an older building, with exterior fire escapes, water radiators for heating and window units for AC. The room I stayed in had the odd property of sloping rather noticeably up toward the window. A bit disconcerting. But for those drawbacks, if you even consider them so, I really enjoyed my brief stay there. The decor... More
