Stately boutique hotel near Union Square
Considering its name and the British flag flying out front, it's no surprise that the King George Hotel near San Francisco's Union Square district has a decidedly European flair. Decorative touches are subtle but continue this theme: chess boards in every room, coats of arms, and more. All guests receive complimentary Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access. The on-site restaurant, Winston's Bar and Lounge, even serves imported beer.
Highlights
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access
  • Hop on any one of the city's cable cars down the street
  • Union Square shopping is only a four-block walk from the hotel
Rooms

Accommodations -- 141 rooms and 12 suites in all -- vary in size and configuration but come standard with flat-screen televisions, pillow-top mattresses, MP3 docking stations and in-room safes. Guests receive complimentary Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access as well as nightly turndown service.

Features

The King George Hotel, a free-standing structure, dates back to 1914 and has been renovated numerous times since. It also is now a certified member of the California Green Lodging Program.

All guests have access to a nearby Club One Health Club (fees apply), a full-service facility with spa, pool and fitness center. The hotel also offers 24-hour laundry service (fees apply).

Grab a pint (what else?) at Winston's Bar & Lounge, a kitschy-but-lovable bar on the ground floor. The pub no longer serves food, but the scene is still lively on weekend nights.

Valet and self-parking are available (fees apply).

Review of King George Hotel

I just used the hotel as my 'base camp' for spending a few days in San Francisco. It was perfect - good clean room, friendly and helpful staff, great location. It'd be nice if there were two elevators, and the signal strength on the wireless internet was low, but these were very, very minor issues. I'll definitely stay at the hotel again if back in the area.

Excellent deal

We stayed for three nights. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location. It was a pleasure staying here. The hotel has an international flavor as there were a lot of international travelers staying. Immediately next door are three 24-hour diners with good food. The hotel staff is efficient and keeps the room/bathroom/beds very clean. It's an older hotel so the carpets are kind of old and faded. The room was small but it was good enough for our needs. The location is fantastic - only a few blocks from Union Square. The price is fantastic too. I will definitely stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For breakfast, order the Corned Beef Hash at the diner next door. It's real corned beef and tastes great. As you walk out the front door of the hotel, the diner is located to your right.

nice stay at a small, european-style hot

This place was great, and the staff especially were nice and helpful. It is San Francisco where real estate is costly, so don't expect huge rooms; mine was small, but still very comfortable (you might ask to Not have a corner room, as those did look smaller).

This hotel has many positives. Friendly staff, good location, very clean rooms. Staff very helpful in guiding to good restaurants and how to use local transportation. Could use a fridge in the room. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Would definitely recommend a stay there.

Perfect location

The room was small, but completely adequate for our needs. The faucet in the bathroom leaked, but was not loud or annoying. There are numerous restaurants nearby and Union Square, the Trolley, and Bart station are all a short walk away. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location and fair price

Very friendly staff and great location I would suggest for you to park your car in any of the parking lots that are 2 blocks away if you want overnight parking. It is cheaper than using the hotel's valet parking service.

Excellent location for a reasonable price

This little boutique hotel was perfect for my solo trip (and first!) to San Francisco. It was close to decent restaurants, public transportation, and shopping. I am an avid walker, and I didn't really need any of the public transportation for most of my trip. It is within a mile in any direction to almost everything I wanted to see. The room was small, but very clean and pretty. There is no A/C, but it is cool in SF, so I didn't miss it. All the rooms have ceiling fans and windows that open. It has a nice little lounge, and they have complimentary coffee, tea and ice water in the mornings (no breakfast). I would definitely stay there again.

A conveniently located boutique type hotel with comfortable rooms for a stay in The City, where you do not plan on spending time in the room. Glad we stayed there.
