Perfect Romantic Getaway

The hotel was perfect if you want the San Francisco experience. The staff was very friendly. Plan on parking your car and using the public transit offered. Cable cars and train will get you to the popular spots. Shopping and dining are all within walking distance. Be prepared to pay for parking, it's worth it. You'll pay just as much at all the tourist spots. The room was clean and new. It has a perfect feel, an aged exterior with a refurbished interior. The rooms have a very modern look. The pictures are accurate. I plan on staying here every time I visit the city.

Use the Sightseeing Hop on Hop Off buses at Union Square. That is a better option.

Just what we were looking for

If your are staying in DOWNTOWN San Fransisco - walking distance to just about everything or just a quick ride on the F BUS - Hotel Union Square is PERFECT. From the location to the staff to the room...it is the perfect priced right small hotel that has it all. Everyone was so DARNED friendly - even the guest - wine time from 5 to 6 every night - NO, there is no bar or resturant - YOU DON'T NEED THAT. Because it's either next door, or across the street, or up the block. My wife & I went to SF for an anniversary trip - didn't want to go crazy on cost - HOTEL UNION SQUARE was absolutely perfect for us. A+

Nice Trip, Perfect Hotel

Hotel Union Square is nothing fancy, but the location is great and the accomodations are comfortable. Ask for a back room for more space and quite.

Amazing location, friendly staff

The hotel was good for the price and in a great location. Super close to the BART station as well as a bunch of different MUNI lines, which made getting around the city and to and from the airport super easy. The staff was very friendly and even offered me an upgrade room (for only $20!). There is free WiFi, coffee, tea and even a wine reception at 5:30-6:30. My only complaint was that my room was an interior room and didn't have a window. I walked in and it was super dark, but once I got all the lights on and the fans going, the room was bright and the air circulated well. Good stay overall!

San Francisco

This is a very cool older hotel in the most lively area of the city. There can be some noise on the street at night, but that's what you would expect in this area. It is very close to the BART station and on a cable car line. The ambiance is nice and it has very artistic decor. This was better than previous hotels I've stayed in because of the central location and the fact that it doesn't have the typical chain hotel feel.

Outstanding Hotel!

The Hotel Union Square is an outstanding boutique hotel with an outstanding location for families traveling with children. For the girls, it is a block away from the Westfield Center...Bloomingdales and Nordstrums. The Walgreens,literally across the street, has everything you forgot or need for the small kids. The restaurant next door Tad's, provides room service and has the best burgers and chicken friend steak ever! Starbucks is a 1/2 block away. The cable car station is one block away. Many destinations are close to the hotel.The staff are pleasant and efficient. [...], the Concierge, is a rock star. The hotel manager is hands on and it shows. I had friends staying at the Four Seasons who spent over $400 a night who could not even come close to the updated design of the rooms or the polite service.We will definitely stay again at Hotel Union Square.Hint:Try the executive room for the kids and Mom and take another Queen room for Dad.Hint: If you ask for a quiet, room they will give you a very pleasant room on the interior light and air well.
