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.
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.

Property 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).

Cozy room and great location

Room was small but cozy and great location. Overall hotel rooms in Downtown San Francisco are very expensive, so I would say King George hotel is reasonable. I stayed there by myself but felt safe. I will be back to this hotel if I visit San Francisco again.

Great Experience

The staff was awesome and the room was a decent size, which is to say cozy as it seems all the rooms in this area are. In a really good spot. Very pleasant and reasonable value for the area.

Should be an historic site to be visited on a tour not an overnight stay. Seedy neighborhood.

Good location for the price

The hotel is old and not very clean, it is in a good location, I rather look for a cleaner hotel next time in San Francisco and with better comfort.

Single Traveller

Really liked this hotel. As a single female traveller (meeting up with relatives living in SF) I felt really safe and secure at this hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room. One day the lift was out of action and being on the 6th floor the walk up was quite tiring (for a fairly fit 67 year old) but this was only a minor inconvenience and did not distract from my stay.

Pleased for sure

The hotel is in a great area. Close to the BART station if you are flying in and would need to take it. Hotel is clean, nothing extraordinary, simple, but does the job for sure.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

If you don't have alot of time in SF (we stayed for 4 days) but want to see alot, do use public transportation to get across to the west side of the city. We walked everywhere (and loved it!) but may have seen more things if we drove places.
