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

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.

great location

great rooms (bathrooms) are a little on the small side,the unexpected "false" fire alarm was quite a shock due to the painters fixing the building. but over all the stay was decent for the price but the location is unmatched and great. the staff is very helpful and willing to go the extra mile, we would stay here again in the future.

Great Location

I lived near by the Hotel and it was near the Tenderloin but near Union Square. I loved the place it was well worth the amount I was paying for when compared to staying in a comporable city like Chicago or NYC. Great staff although they didnt have my reservation through net.

Six Nights of Comfort in a Treasure

I stayed at this hotel for six nights during a business trip to San Francisco. The room was small, but the bathroom was spacious. The closet was ample as well. The room was clean and pleasant. The hotel is centrally located near Powell St. BART, Moscone Center, and many restaurants of varying price and excellent quality. This is downtown San Francisco. There are panhandlers. There is noise at night. But the hotel is reasonably well-insulated, and I slept very pleasantly. The hotel staff was helpful, especially in dealing with the separate travel arrangements of myself and the colleague with whom I was staying. I booked early and got a nice deal, but I've paid a little less for much worse quality. I don't know what the bar and breakfast room are like.

perfectly fine

The hotel is on the older side, there is only one small elevator for staff and guests, and the room was very small, however, it is very well maintained,the staff is very helpful, and it is in a great location. Futhermore, the price we got from [...] was fantastic. We would stay there again.

noisy but with a great location

it is a very noisy hotel, however the location is perfect, close to the bart station and the public transportation to go to SFO's landmarks, everything was good except for all the noise you can hear from other rooms..

FANTASTIC HOTEL

This is just a fantastic hotel! From the minute we walked in we were treated so well. Very nice lobby, very friendly, baby crib for the room was no prob, hot towels delivered to the room, roomservice reasonably priced and quick, clean, comfortable room, very quaint SF style hotel. Could not be happier with this place. We paid $69 a night and got a great deal, but honestly I would have been ok paying much more than that for the service we got. Concierge is great, helped with tourist info, airport rides, etc. All of this and a great location, safe, good area, close to union square and cable car pickups.
