Overview

The Hotel Rex was inspired by the San Francisco art and literary salons of the 1920's and 30's. Vibrant and alive, the clubby lobby surrounds guests with distinctive period furnishings, walls of antiquarian books, and an exceptional collection of exotic objects and original portraits and murals. Literary events regularly unfold in the lobby bar, and the hotel's new Caf Andree is an enchanting blend of a Northern California caf and authentic French bistro. Guestrooms are decorated in a palate of Provencal colors and feature the work of local artisans as well as an impressive menu of modern amenities. The Hotel Rex has recently reopened after completing its spectacular million-dollar renovation. The Hotel Rex now accepts pets for a one time cleaning fee of $100 per stay. Valet parking is available at $49.00 plus tax.

San Francisco valentines

Would recommend Wed, Feb 18, 2015
The Hotel Rex was in a perfect location only a few blocks from Union Square close to terrific restaurants, like Scala's, Jean d'Arc, and the Dome at Neiman Marcus. The library style bar is terrific the decor seems a little dark . The overall experience is great and they were truly dog friendly to my service dog. A great buy for a terrific location.

Experience San Francisco at the Rex.

Would recommend Mon, Aug 11, 2014
The hotel is quaint, well maintained, and in an excellent location. Walk to Union Square. Catch the cable car to Fisherman's Warf a block away on Powell. Have a glass of wine in the Library. The staff members were cordial and pleasant. I definitely will stay at the Rex my next visit.

Dining

Dine at CREDO, 360 Pine Street.

Couple Getaway

Would recommend Tue, Jul 8, 2014
The Hotel Rex provided a relaxing atmosphere for my spouse and I. We wanted a location central to the muni system and a variety of restaurants. The staff at the Hotel Rex are extremely accommodating and make you feel like part of the family. All of the staff seemed knowledgeable about the area and were helpful with their input as we planned each day's activities.

Dining

For a special night out on the town I recommend eating at the "Morton's Steak house" a little pricey but well worth the experience!

Excellent attention, excellent location

Would recommend Tue, Jun 3, 2014
Right in the heart of Union Square, offering a very friendly staff. The rooms is a little small, but compared to other reviews of SF City hotels, it may be an adequate size. Ditto for the elevator, pretty tight quarters. The comfort, cleanliness, and the staff's attention far exceeds any other 'naggy' comment regarding room size. The cherry on the cake was the two beach cruisers available for use by hotel guests. My wife and I saw the City from a perspective available to few tourists (unless you decide to pay an arm and a leg to rent a bike for the day). The informality of taking the hotel's bicycles on a spin around the Embarcadero through the City's many neighborhoods made our stay at Hotel Rex second to none.

Dining

Elephant Sushi in Russian Hill neighborhood, worth the short Lyft trip.
