Intimate boutique comfort and personal attention right by Union Square

"Handsome" and "debonair" are two words guests use to describe the Hotel Adagio, situated just two blocks from San Francisco's Union Square. With Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, Mediterranean accents and an on-site bar that serves tapas-style dishes, the hotel has a decidedly European flair. It also is intimate, with only 171 rooms. Adding to the personal-attention angle, Wi-Fi is available (fees apply), and tours of the area and Town Car service around town are available.

Highlights
  • Located steps from the shopping and excitement of Union Square
  • Concierge desk offering assistance in city tours
  • The Green Room and The Mortimer serving delicious cuisines and cocktails
Location

In addition to its proximity to Union Square, the Hotel Adagio is mere steps away from two of the most storied theaters in San Francisco, the Curran Theatre and the American Conservatory Theater. The Curran is directly across the street.

 

Rooms

The 16-story Hotel Adagio offers 171 rooms, including six suites. Almost half of the guestrooms feature dramatic San Francisco city views; all come standard with iHome or Cambridge Soundsystem stereos, 32-inch LCD televisions, honor bars with refrigerators, hairdryers and Organic Bath amenities. Room decor is minimalist -- white walls accented with artwork and colorful curtains, white linens with vibrant throw pillows. Wi-Fi access is available in all rooms for an added cost.

Features

At the hotel itself, guests have access to a 24-hour fitness center, as well as personal fitness and wellness training from a certified trainer (fees apply). The hotel also features same-day laundry and valet service (fees apply). The front desk offers staff-authored guides to the hidden sights and sounds of San Francisco. All guests can enjoy a complimentary walking tour of the Union Square area with a representative of Golden Gate Greeters, a volunteer tour group.

Dining

Bar Adagio, the swanky on-site eatery, serves tapas-style dishes, pizzas, salads and a full list of handcrafted cocktails. The bar offers daily happy hour specials.

So-So Experience

I have a small paranoia of bugs and cleanliness when I stay in places that I do not know. I did the usual checks and found no signs of bed bugs for those that are paranoid as well. Pros - The rooms were mostly clean, it was freshly vacuumed and new sheets were put on. The colors were very welcoming and made the room feel very homey. Cons - There was some moisture mold on the window sill behind the desk. Probably one of the more neglected areas because of its location. The bathroom was satisfactory. The shower looked like a normal tub and even had some of the porcelain coming off in areas. Definitely not as nice as if could have been. Overall a nice stay with some little details that need to be looked at by the staff. I will most likely not be staying here again.

Good for business trip

Enjoyed the location and the ambience of the hotel and my room....think the Vallet parking is too expensive given there is a garage next door that is half the cost. But all else was good!

Great location but overpriced ameneties

Great location and friendly staff. Unfortunately, there are some inconsistencies that are very dis-appointing, e.g. hotel is charging for WiFi and $6 for a coffee when consumed at their breakfast restaurant (it's for FREE if you help yourself in the lobby!!!)

Amazing !!!

I was recently stayed here for a birthday get away with some friends of ours. The staff was very friendly and the hotel is in very GREAT location which added lots of convenience to wonder around the city for tourist attraction. I will definitely see myself staying here when I'm back in San Francisco !!!

Great location, served our purpose

The staff was very friendly and attentive. Nice looking hotel (lobby, bar, restaurant, etc...) The room was clean. Housekeeping could have been more on top of restocking toiletries in the room, but well kept otherwise. Great location. Two blocks from the center of Union Square. Bus stops, Street cars, Cable cars pretty close to go wherever you want to around the city.

There is a cool blues/jazz club about 1 1/2 blocks down the street going towards Union Square called Biscuits and Blues. We caught the resident jazz quartet who plays every Monday night (9-11:30).

Best Anniversary Celebration Ever!!!

My wife and I went to SanFran to celebrate our 10th anniversary...I've been in SF a couple of times before but she had never...our stay at the Adagio was great...the staff was really helpful upon arrival...they suggested things to do, told us about the many events going on that weekend, etc. Our room was really nice, on the 8th floor...clean, nice decor, simply great! Great location...2-3 blocks from Union Square, 5 blocks from the train that takes you in/out of the airport...the last night we had drinks and dinner at The Mortimer (Adagio's bar) and it was great: good selection of beers and cocktails, good food...and the music!!! 80-90s hit after hit!!!

Trip to the Bay

We had a nice quiet room with a view of the parking lot. It was nicely decorated. Staff was helpful. Room service was exorbitant for the meager amount of food. Restaurant had a small menu. There are no good places in the area except for the Olympic across the street- great food and a lot of it. The only bad aspect was the homeless nearby.
