Small room, the AC/heating system didn't work, tiny inconvenient bathroom no space for toiletries, terrible shower with inconstant volume and temperature; mediocre and understaffed desk service. I will not return.

Great hotel with a great location. This hotel is a really great value. We have stayed here twice and this time the service was incredible. It's so nice to be so close to the action. We have stayed in the Powell side which is so romantic with the cable car and city sounds, this time we stayed on the courtyard...

My wife and I spent two nights at Villa Florence. Our stay was wonderful. The staff was cheerful and helpful. We changed rooms (to one facing the street) once we had checked in without problem. The room was clean, light and welcoming. The location half a block from Union Square was ideal. There was a lot of room noise facing...

Loved the Villa Florence! Excellent location, the rooms were lovely, excellent natural light and the staff left us a nice note and bottle of wine since we were celebrating an anniversary. It was a bit noisy with the traffic on Powell Street but not that bad. It was actually really nice hearing a street musician one night playing a saxophone....

The location can't be beat - practically right on Union Square. The service was wonderful - they asked us what preferences we had for our room location when we arrived, since they had lots of rooms available. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We loved the glass of champagne upon arrival, as well as the lovely decor in the lobby...

I made a reservation online and it was messed up a bit. However when I called to fix it the staff on the phone was so great with dealing with my problem and even gave me a better room for the same price. When I arrived to the hotel it was after my flight landed at 5AM. They gave me...

Reggie Edwards did a fabulous job of checking us in, answering all of our questions, participating in our jokes, and being one of the best customer service agents I've met in a long while.

Had a quick one night stay and was warmly greeted by Kelvin at the front desk who asked about my room preferences and upgraded me to a room that met and exceeded my expectations. The room was large, very well appointed and newly renovated with premium furnishings and a beautiful and comfy king bed. The bathroom was well sized, clean...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Florence offers 189 guest rooms, where the Italian-inspired theme continues in the rooms' furniture selection featuring cut velvet lounge chairs and large dramatic Peony flowers painted on the guest bed headboards. The flowers, reminiscent of Florentine flower markets, pair elegantly with bed pillows featuring the Fleur-des-Lis, the symbol of Florence. Each guestroom highlights the uniqueness of the building's architecture, featuring one-off pieces in each room, while the portraits in the guest room corridors are inspired by the Renaissance and evoke the spirit of art, literature, and learning. The whimsical photos in the guest room corridors were created by Liz Heras, a well-known Los Angeles-based graphic artist who creates custom graphic artwork for large-scale hotel projects nationwide. With ample room for the family, an intimate backdrop for romance, and upgraded amenities, Villa Florence will keep you connected to home. ... more   less
