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).

No suprises

The King George Hotel was in a GREAT location - close to the cable cars, union square, and many nice bars and restaurants. The rooms were small, but clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and were able to answer questions easily. I would definitely stay here again.

Stay Here! It's Near To . . . Everything

Very wonderful front staff and concierge services -- like a 4 star hotel. Love being near Union Square and 1 block from Powell St. BART & MUNI train stations.

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.

Saggy Bed

The hotel was nice, situated in the town center -next to the Union Square. The room was sufficiently dimensioned, but the bed was really sagged.

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.

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.

Quiet comfort little hotel

Stay in the hotel for four nights and it is in good location, and close to many good restaurant and sightseeing sites. The room service is timely and the staff is very nice. one thing I have to say is the facility is a little bit old, may need a renovation. when you adjust the temperature of the shower, it is very slow and always overshot. Room is quiet and clean. Price is acceptable and worth the money.

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.
