Perfect location

We had a wonderful stay at the Handlery. The location was perfect for exploring the city. Cable cars and buses were a short walk around the corner -taking us to the wharf and Golden Gate Park. We caught the 38 bus just across the street to get to Land's End walk to stick our toes in the Pacific. The staff was friendly and eager to answer any questions. We enjoyed grabbing a slice of pizza or a pastry to eat in Union Square--a festive locale to end the day. We hope to stay here again !

Quick business trip

Perfect spot to get to appointments anywhere in SF, rooms and baths apparently upgraded, much nice than previous trips here. Surprisingly nice restaurant for a bite when the isn't time to go to one of the many top restaurants nearby.

If you don't mind the price tag go to Farallon about 2 blocks - best seafood in SF and totally fabulous, massive jellyfish chandeliers, super wine list, friendly for such a pricey place.

Ballpark visit

Went to SF for 2 ball games . Great location in Union Square. Cable Cars, shopping, restaurants, theaters all right in front of you. Our room was in the "historic" section of the Hotel, which really meant the older part. That's ok our room overlooked the street, with the square on the corner. 2 blocks from Cable Car turnaround and train service. Took the train to the night game, walked to the day game ( 40 min walk )

GOOD LOCATION

They let us check in early-that was very nice. Room was very small and window looked onto a brick wall. Good location and price if you do not plan on staying in your room much.
