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).

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.

In town for business

Nicely situated small hotel. Clean rooms, fairly quiet for being right off of a busy street. Close to theaters, shopping eating drinking etc.

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.

Awesome Vacation

This is the first hotel I always check for availability when I go to SFO. It is right in the heart of downtown, surrounded by a whole lot of choices for eateries, stores, shops, and clubs. And the price is not so bad. Very clean room, and the staff ensure your needs are met.

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.

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.

SF

Hotel is in a great location. Union Square is a huge shopping area, high end shopping, you name the brand, the store is here. Think of Times Square NYC. Thats the level of pedestrian traffic. If you want to be in the heart of the city, this is the place. Also near all major public transportation. Note this hotel, despite its prime location, is not too far from the Tenderloin District which is a bit of a run down part of town. You will encounter beggars at the corners, and just steps out the door of the hotel. They seemed to be pretty harmless, but I say this so that you are forewarned. Also keep in mind that the weather stays pretty chilly, and a jacket is essential. This is NOT San Diego/Los Angeles where beach weather is the norm. Overall great trip, lots to see, do and explore.

Good value, especially for this location

I went to SF to visit museums, to see a show, and to try some unusual restaurants. Since the King George is only a block and a half from Union Square, it is in the heart of the part of SF that appeals to me.

Great location

It was the perfect location for my first trip to San Francisco, easy walking distance to everything, and the restaurant next door became my favorite for breakfast. (Dining options rate a 5 because of hotel's proximity to many great restaurants.) The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. Although my room was at the back of the hotel, street noise did wake me during the night so I had to close the window. But I would recommend the hotel to anyone. I gave it only four stars because I couldn't give it four-and-a-half, and there's always room for improvement, right?
