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).

My only gripe is that there was no bedside lamp. It's pretty cold with just a ceiling light.

business trip

Hotel is in a good location close to cable cars and Bart. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean. Sheets were a little scratchy. Bathroom was tiny. Room faced a wall and had no view. Older hotel but appeared to be recently remodeled. Free Wi-Fi was nice and worked well. Only stayed 1 night so don't know what long term stay would be like. Didn't see a pool or gym but didn't actively search for them.

Good hotel

Pretty clean; easy Small. Water pressure was a little questionable. Also, no closet; the coat and shirt hangars were right above the TV. A little weird. If you just need a place to crash with some internet and TV, this is good for the price.

Run down and uncomfortable rooms, with free early morning construction noise!

I was a little wary about this place going in, but town was pretty booked so it seemed like the best of the rest. Well, my concerns were justified. Here's a small menu of the most significant cons to this place: - Rooms are falling apart. Bad peeling paint, shoddy repairs to walls and surfaces, chain bolt was missing from door (screw holes where it goes). - Beds and pillows are low quality and uncomfortable. - Thin (single pane?) windows mean you get a front-row seat to all the noise of a busy neighborhood. Trucks, cars, 3am African street drums, the works. - EARLY MORNING REMODELING NOISE FROM INSIDE THE BUILDING, at 7:45am. Really. Like sanding and sawing of the floors above, followed up with hammer drilling in concrete, and then hammering on steel in concrete. - Rickety elevator makes you find your rosary beads. - Extremely steep spiral stair not really practical for most folks. - Bad TV signal on multiple channels -- broken up picture. What other people have said is definitely true. No A/C, but I didn't need it. Fan was acceptable. Radiator looks like it would be noisy, but it was off in October. Both mornings I was there, some idiot with a hammer started making tons of noise before 8am. Then the oddest part, by 8:30/9am they would stop and it'd be quiet again. So why the heck did they feel it needed to happen right then and wake me up? The only explanation for this is poor management not putting the guests' needs ahead of their own projects. I'm pretty disappointed that the door was missing any backup security mechanism -- there's the little bolt on the digital lock, but I assume the staff can override that so what good is it. The front desk staff was extremely friendly. The location is quite central, and there is good food nearby. The rooms are pretty terrible.

Small but convenient

The room was incredibly small, but it is in an ideal location. The staff is very friendly and they have a nice bar in the hotel. It is a great place to stay if you want to be in a lively neighborhood, but if you are flexible then better options are available.
