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.

Euro-modern feel, well appointed

Very nice hotel stay with comfortable beds and good styling like you find in all this local chain's properties. Bar Adagio has a good beer selection and friendly staff.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The Tenderloin is just a few blocks away, so travelers should be conscious of which direction they head out from the front door.

Convenient and friendly

Good location with short walk to BART and Cable car.Somewhat dated carpet was, reportedly, in process of being updated. First room had noisy heater but staff quickly switched us to nice, quiet room. Portable A/C within rooms, vented to outside. Very friendly and accomodating staff advised us on local restaurants, etc. We enjoyed the stay!

Welcome to San Fran!

Everything was within walking distance of the beautiful hotel. The Bart, the trolley's, shopping, and TONS of great places to eat. The staff was more than accomodating and I would absolutely recommend and stay here again.

Adagio was a great hotel

Rooms nice - staff nice. good location. be careful where you wonder after dark. Lots of panhandlers and we were warned by bartender to stay away from some paths away from the hotel at night. seemed safe though if you are careful. good access to stuff to do and to cable cars. overall recommended.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

This was a great hotel for a few days in Union Square. We asked for a room on a top floor and got it. I like how you can get $5 coupon to the bar if you don't need housekeeping for a day and their efforts to be green. Each day at reception, they have 2 flavors of water that has been infused with fruit. A nice touch! The hotel was quiet, clean, and very comfortable.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want a short walk, be careful and ask at reception where to go, as many neighborhoods west of the hotel (and all of Union Square) are not so safe at night.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Two blocks from there in Geary street are two very good asian restaurants and they are not expensive. The Chinese one is going towards Union Square, and the Thai one is going in the same direction as Geary street. In front of the Adagio Hotel is the "Hotel Monaco" that has a very nice restaurant "Grand Cafe" I really recommend this, but is a little bit expensive.

Enjoyed our stay there!

The Union Square area is ideally located for the use of various modes of public transportation. The hotel is ideally situated in the area. A short walk got us to the subway, streetcars and cable cars headed in any direction. The bus taking us to the Golden Gate Park stopped right in front of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The decor of the lobby and restaurant area were very nice. Our rooms was average but a big plus that there were NO bedbugs! We felt safe walking in the area to local restaurants and theater in the evening and pre-dawn.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy a MUNI pass at the tourist information center (close to the hotel) when you arrive to be able to ride the underground rail, buses, streetcars, and cable cars to get everywhere easily. Don't pre-buy the Go San Francisco card. Wait until you get there and consider the several discount and package options offered at the tourist information center.
