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).

Surprising good for the price

Surprisingly clean and hospitable for the price. Unexpected pluses where Q-tips, cotton balls, and a jar of mints in the room that were all refilled each day. Room was small, but quaint. Concierge and staff with knowledgeable and helpful. Would recommend the hotel and would stay there again.

Business trip 5 night stay

For the price, it was well worth it. I just needed a place to sleep due to long business hours while there and it was clean and quiet. Every staff member was pleasant.

Pretty basic, but a good deal in a good location.

Stayed for two nights, me and my two kids (9 and 5). Pretty basic amenities, but more than adequate. Reasonably clean, but kind of noisy neighborhood at night. Good location for catching cable cars and exploring downtown San Francisco. Staff was friendly and helpful every time we asked. Given that it's San Francisco, it was a pretty good deal (about $200.00 a night), but it is only a hotel room, so it still pains me to pay that much. Overall, a good spot for a trip to SF.

Good location, low price

Small room, but usable desk. Dated but adequate and clean. Was looking for low cost alternate to big names, and this was satisfactory. Not for big spenders, who like to pay for WiFi or hunt for a cell signal.

nice stay in San Francisco

Hotel is a block from Union Square near the shopping area and the Powell street cable car. Our room was small, but it had a walk in closet and a nice bathroom. The room was clean and all furnishings were in good condition. The staff was always attentive to our requests. The lobby and bar are cozy. The only limitation we found was a small elevator for the number of people using it.

Nice hotel - well located

very nice hotel with comfy rooms - a bit noisy but then again it's in the middle of the city. Very well located next to Union Square.

Central location, excellent staff

The hotel is centrally located near Union Square; next to the theatres and a bike rental shop! The rooms are typical for a San Fran hotel and were adequate for our needs. The bed was quite comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helped us with bag storage and other needs. The only complaint I have is not with the hotel but the location... though it's central to stores and transportation, there is relatively little reason to stay in this area if you want to frequent the city's cafes, restaurants and night life. It's a fairly starbucks and Macy's sort of area.

King George Hotel

Staff was very quick to respond to our problems with the door problem to Rm. 301. Location was great, able to do most of the activities that we had planned. Except for the noise outside our window (hotel cannot control this problem) our trip was great.
