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.

Things To Do:

  • Union Square (0.4 mi/0.6 km)
  • San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (1.1 mi/1.7 km)
  • Financial District (1.6 mi/2.5 km)

Good value for the money

The Hotel Diva has a very friendly and helpful staff. It is conveniently located just off Union Square so food, shopping, sight-seeing, and public transportation are all easily available. The hotel is clean and tastefully if simply appointed. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is a good value for the money.

Great hotel in a great location

Nice and helpful staff, excellent location. You walk 1 direction then you can get the fancy stuff, you walk the other direction you can get the local dive but with good food and very reasonably price. Also this is very close to the Bart stop, plus there is free internet station.

DIVA's Great Personality

We had a wonderful one night stay at the Diva. We were given a upgrade at no charge as we checked in early. This made our stay all the more pleasant. Each time we stay at the Diva we find that the hotel's staff is more and more pleasant and gives us royal treatment. The rooms are wonderful and comfortable. It has a unique and exciting decor that fits the San Francisco feeling. It's location is great as it is in the middle of the theatre district and just a short walk to Union Square and all the shopping located around. With both Starbucks and the Colibri Mexican Bistro downstairs, it is the prefect location. We recommend the Diva to everyone who wants great service, great location at a great price!

The ACT is across the street. Colibri Mexican Bistro is, along with a Starbucks, downstairs. Union Square is just a short walk as is all the great shopping in the heart of SFO.

Fast Vacation in San Francisco

We were very happy with Hotel Diva. It is in a great location to the city. We would definitely stay again. It is easy to get a round once you figure out the transit system and the location of the places you wish to go.

excellent location and service for the value.

Helpful and very accomodating staff. Rooms are clean and the beddings were very comfortable. Bathrooms were a bit small and the sink was not in the bathroom. But it didn't really matter, it was clean and the shower was nice and hot. Excellent location in downtown and extremely convenient. Parking on O'farrell and Ellis for the rental car was good. Great japanese sushi and noodle shop next door and opened till 1:30 a.m. Starbuck's right downstairs for your morning buzz.

Just remember, you have to walk back to the hotel with what you buy. And it is not easy not to buy too much.

A modern Beauty

Hotel Diva is located about three blocks away from union square so it was very convenient. The rooms are a little smaller the shower head is a little lower, but other than that the hotel staff was very nice and the Starbucks next door was awesome! My only complaint was being charged Seven dollars for the three dollar bottle of water I drank. Other than that I couldn't have asked for a better hotel!

Eventhough our trip was very hectic and overwhelming, the staff at the hotel was great. They held our bags while we looked around. They also provided great transportation to the airport. Staff was great and friendly. Overall I would definetily stay here again. One more thing, hotel had great decor, very modern yet elegant and clean.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Downtown San Francisco not known for their night clubs and party bars. If you want to relax it's great if not, plan on staying away from downtown area or plan on traveling to oakland or berkeley. I had to learn the hard way by walking in the middle of the night with sore feet.
