Industrial chic and unique hotel off Union Square
 

Hotel Diva is a unique, ultramodern hotel designed by local architect Olle Lundberg, who specializes in metalwork. Like something from a futuristic or science fiction film, Hotel Diva makes a dramatic style statement, featuring Lundberg's trademark sculptured metal headboards and bold color schemes of slate gray and silver with a striking blue carpet, symbolizing a 1930s ocean liner, running throughout. In contrast to the industrial chic, which won Hotel Diva a Best Hotel Design award from Interiors magazine, the service is warm and attentive.

3 Reasons To Stay:

  • Avant-garde hotel designed by renowned architect
  • Located near all amenities of Union Square
  • Pet- and wallet-friendly hotel
Hotel Diva Rooms
 

The outstanding, modern style of Hotel Diva is present throughout its 115 guest rooms, which range from deluxe king or queen rooms to deluxe two doubles. Not for the faint-hearted, the cool, monochromatic rooms feature the architect's signature steel headboards, metallic touches, and a playful, pop art touch. Children love the little divas suite, which is equipped for a family of four and boasts a riot of primary colors in a fun, almost cartoonish setting. The hotel is not just about the fun factor, though, as it takes the needs of guests seriously, and they are well provided for with iPod docking stations, flat-screen televisions and complimentary wireless Internet. Rooms also include comfortable beds, bathrobes and coffee-making facilities. The hotel also caters for the business traveler, with four designer business lounges available for use, and there is complimentary use of a town car to whisk guests to the nearby Financial District. Eating on site is a pleasure at Colibri, which offers fresh and tasty Mexican cuisine, plus a selection of premium tequilas, and the Hotel Diva includes a Starbucks with its usual good selection of coffees, pastries and muffins.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Shopping, dining and arts abound in this area- all within walking distance. Taking BART from airport to hotel leaves you about 5 -6 city block walks- easy if your luggage is on wheels or backpacking.

Diva Did It

Had a friend staying at Sir Francis D but we wanted something more tenderloin. Diva has character, comfort and convenience. My only qualms are about soap. There was only a tiny square tile for hand, face and body. Not so diva on that one.

All good till the next door partiers showed up

My stayed was good, staffs were friendly, location was ideal, rooms were clean and quiet.. till Saturday night comes when the partiers checked in. My room was situated at the end of the main hallway, sandwiched with suites on either side of my room. The partiers who checked in were a group of ladies, who were celebrating their friend's bachelorette's party. I understand that it's a Saturday, it's a party, it's a happy occasion. However, I wish they would keep their happiness inside their rooms. Since they occupied both suites on either side, they pop their doors opened for easy access in between the rooms.... their loud conversations and laughs echo down the hallway and it's just not cooled... I called the front desk and see if there's anything that they can do about it and I didn't think they had done anything... I didn't get my quiet back till they went out... I understand that it's a Saturday and it's not unusual for partiers to be loud, I wish the hotel would arrange partiers in a different section of the hotel so that they won't interfere the other people who prefer a quiet and relaxing evening after a long day of tour around the city! Other than this, I like this hotel and I especially enjoyed the concierge service. Very helpful and professional! Give a big shout to Evan!!!!

Perfact location

The hotel was right in the heart of things, shops, food, sights and transportation. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only negative was the early morning noise of the recycle pick-up outside our window, but I would stay there again anyway.

Funky Fun Hotel

Ive stayed in Hotels like this before and its very Fun. The hotel is in a great location right off Union Square...Easy to get to the Bart and Muni and the Cable Cars. The rooms are designed for maximum personality, small but fine as i don't stay in the room that much. There are no surprises here but no disappointments either I would stay there again.

Perfect Mini Getaway

Chic, hip boutique hotel near Union Square. Friendly staff, clean rooms and complimentary Neuro Sleep water. Starbucks just downstairs. Within walking to everything you could ever ask for. The room was clean and I absolutely loved the decor. We had dinner at the restaurant just downstairs and then walked to get drinks across the street. Catch a comedy at the theater across the street or get on the VIP list at Ruby Skye. Will be back for sure.

Just head left once you leave your hotel, and you will be transported to a large shopping area, from there, turn any direction and the choices are endless.

Hotel not for everyone

The Diva bills itself as a hip hotel, but for some the rooms will be too dark. We asked for a very quiet room, but had an part event room in the building in the back which hosted a very loud party one night of our stay. When we called the front desk, no apology, just tried to defend themselves.
