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).

Low rating, but I'd prob stay here again

I though this was a really cute little hotel in the heart of Union Square. Small rooms, but nice decor/touches. I really only needed somewhere to sleep and I wish that's what I could've gotten: sleep!! I get it, San Fran is a huge, bustling city. But I could not believe how awful the city noise was. We were in a room that was overlooked/was underneath an ally way and there were people partying all night there. And if there wasn't people making noise it was garbage trucks and business owners taking the trash out at all hours. Awful, awful, awful noise!!! ! We shut all the windows and even turned on the T.V. in hopes to drown out the ally way noise, but no luck! We had another member of our group who's room wasn't on the same side as ours and she didn't complain at all about noise. Request a room AWAY from that ally way! The staff was nice but they could've shown more enthusiasm for the guests...ie: smiled...even once would've been nice! There was a coffee/water table set up for guests in the morning and iced water available to us throughout the day. The price was right for the location and dates we were there and if I couldn't find anything comparable I'd stay again. IF it wasn't in that ally way!

Hotel was great - small in the European style but comfortable and very clean. Stylishly furnshed. Fantastic location just a block off Union Square and the Powell St. Cable Car line. Good restaurants in area and very central. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and relatives.

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.

Great location at a great price...online

The staff was really helpful. We had to change our room after the second day because we had reserved a king room online, but only a queen was available until Sunday. Both rooms were small and quirky...we liked them. It was terrific to find a hotel that allowed smoking...Thank you!

Great Location!

Stayed here for New Year's. Hotel is in a great location. Near shopping and lots of restaurants. Room was very clean but very small but that is to be expected for a Boutique Hotel. The Staff was really nice.

We had breakfast at Max's. I recommend the Crab Cake Benedict. The Crab Cake had lumps of crab meat in it, which was nice because sometimes crab cakes are more bread than meat.

nice and cozy for two..

the staff were wonderful and extremely helpful with the hotel as well as the surroundings. unfortunately, we had no water and found out we we came in for the evening at 12 midnight, maintenance came immediately and could not remedy the situation. they gave us another room to shower and did not charge us for parking which would have been another $40.00. I would stay again but check the water first.

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.
