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.

Overall Good

The decor is chic. The room was clean, but the bed was suitable only for people who like the super-pillowtop type mattresses, and not someone who likes a firmer mattress. The breakfast menu was limited and overpriced. And the burger and fries were overseasoned. Overall, though, the room was pleasant and the hotel was well run.

Very nice hotel, excellent location

Had a very good stay here - just a couple of blocks from Union Square. Lots of nice restaurants nearby, and a short walk to BART, etc. The room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Internet was $9.95/day. Not end of the world, but I instead went to a nearby cafe with free wireless. Overall, a nice, clean place that seems to have been recently remodelled.

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!

disappointed

I was excited to check out this botique hotel and stay in the city (I come to SF once a month for business but usually stay outside the city) However I felt let down by the whole experience. I paid for a junior suite (which is actually just a standard room) but upon arrival was given a room with a bed slightly bigger than a twin and room that felt like an old closet. The staff there were as nice as they could be, however, couldn't do much since i had paid through Orbtiz. they did move me to the right room for the second night but couldn't/wouldn't adjust the price i paid for the first evening. The hotel is going through a massive reno which i'm sure will be nice but be aware of no water during the hours of 10-3, and a constuction mess right now.

Great boutique

Note, that I ranked the Value as "perfect" because I received an incredibly attractive discount, otherwise, I would not have been able to afford it. But if you can manage the price, it's a lovely hotel with a nice restaurant and bar. Wifi in the rooms was free, which was a pleasant treat. The room was large and bathroom was clean with good water pressure. The front desk and sales staff were responsive, friendly and helpful - even for those emergency manicure recommendations. If you're attending a conference at the convention center, it may be a block or two farther than you want to walk, but if you can get a great deal on the price, it's worth it.

Great location but not worth the price - Spend a few more dollars for something good

Hotel is decent but nothing special. Parking/Valet is over priced at 39.95 a night as compared to other hotels in the area. Bar/Restaurant is cute and has good drinks, but they have a VERY small menu with limited selection. Room service offers the same menu as the Bar/Restaurant so once again nothing special and limited selection. Room was decent size for downtown, but the sink was clogged, shower had no water pressure, and room itself smelled "strange". Smoke detector battery died at 4:45am and I called to the front desk requesting someone to come replace it since it would NOT STOP BEEPING. I was told there was no staff on duty that could replace such, and that someone would attend to it when hotel maintenance arrived at 8am. I was livid, to say the least. The should have offered to move me to another room since its IMPOSSIBLE to sleep when every 1.5 minutes there is a LOUD chirp from the detector. They offered me nothing, then to add insult to the situation hotel maintenance never came to the room. I was forced to take matters into my own hands at 9am and stood on the desk and removed the detector. I advised the front desk of this upon my checkout and instead of offering some remorse to the situation they just said "oh wow, that sucks. Sorryyyyyy". I think they should've waved my charge for the night.

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.

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

staff was exceptionally helpful and frie

This is a small, friendly hotel convenient to Union Square and within walking distance to the Moscone Conference Center. I generally started the day with the very good breakfast buffet. Complimentary coffee and newspapers in the morning were a plus, as were the computers with 20 minute free access per day to the internet. (Additional time was charged in 20 minute intervals.) The fiendly, informative staff made the stay very enjoyable.
