Cool urban spaces and a chic bar near Union Square
Gorgeous, intimate spaces characterize the Crescent San Francisco hotel, located in a reimagined Victorian building near Union Square. A fresh, clean look is paired with exposed brick, red accents and modern amenities like flat-panel TVs. Look for architectural details, custom curated books and vintage musical instruments throughout the hotel. Personalized service and innovative urban design create an experience of affordable luxury Crescent San Francisco guests aren't likely to forget.
Highlights

  • The Burritt Room bar and lounge
  • Understated urban design incorporates historic architectural details
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access

Rooms

Cutting-edge design at the Crescent San Francisco hotel combines sleek style with historic architectural details in 80 rooms and suites. European influences draw from the old (glittering chandeliers, exposed brick) as well as the new (bright white furnishings, clean lines). Comfort is the common denominator -- find it in 400 thread count sateen linens, spa toiletries and blackout curtains. Marble bathrooms, free Wi-Fi Internet access and flat-panel TVs with premium channels provide additional comfort and convenience. All rooms are nonsmoking. Suites feature woven throws, bathrobes, makeup mirror and more.

Features

Hang out in the Crescent San Francisco lobby lounge, where a newspaper, book, film and music library invites guests to linger. A complimentary continental breakfast is served each morning, and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access is available throughout the hotel. Inquire with the concierge to arrange for on-site spa and salon services.

 

The highly respected Burritt Room entices guests with high ceilings, exposed brick and a cool white piano -- and draws an impressive line-up of old-school cocktails and contemporary concoctions.
Dining
The Burritt Room offers a selection of small plates -- but when appetites call for something heartier, there are several fantastic dining options surrounding the Crescent San Francisco. Just steps away, Scala's Bistro offers a menu inspired by the French and Italian countryside and conceived by former contestants on TV's popular Top Chef cooking competition.

Great Hotel for a Great Price

My girlfriend and I were looking for a nice, cozy, hotel at a great price close to a music venue and found it. The Crescent was right next to Union Square and was super nice. The room was hipsta and affordable.

A gem in Downtown SF

I was delighted with this hotel, particularly by the very tastefully designed, gorgeous modern room and bathroom that really made being IN the room a real pleasure. The window looked out on an alley, so I chose to keep the blinds down, but that didn't detract from my experience. The location is great, just a 4 minute walk north of the Powell St. BART station, a block and a half north of Union Square and two blocks from the Chinatown gate. The free breakfast was fine for light eaters (it's European style, so if you're a fan of huge, American-style breakfast buffets, you probably won't be too happy with this), but the breakfast room itself is a little plain, considering how nice my room was. The lobby is nice and there's room for sitting around if you need to wait for someone. The staff is young and friendly and quite helpful. The room key is more convenient than usual: you just hold the key next to the lock and it opens, so no need to slide a credit-card style key in an out, which can be tedious. All in all, this place is a gem for the price, which was my main concern while searching for a hotel in this area.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

To get to the Chinatown gate, walk left out of the hotel, go about 20 meters north, and take the side stairs up to the street level. Once you're on street level, walk downhill one block on the gate is on your left.

Great hotel with character

We love the Crescent hotel. It's got character but the aesthetic is understated enough to be perfectly comfortable. Great location too.

Great Experience!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Crescent and would not hesitate to return the next time we visit SF. The location was very convenient, close to bus routes, shopping in Union Square, good food, Chinatown and we easily walked to many other places. Our room was a little small, but it had everything we needed and we could have had a larger room if we wanted to pay for it - but who spends a lot of time in their room during the day anyway? The room was VERY reasonable. The noon checkout time was nice as well. It was clean and updated and that's all we needed. The new hotel bar/lounge was historical and interesting - a nice respite at the end of a day. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. If you have a car the parking garage is on the same block just steps around the corner - not unreasonably priced and unlimited in and out service. We have nothing bad to say.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy the City Pass booklet if you're going to visit the attractions and use the public transportation system. It's convenient and we saved money even though we didn't visit everything.

Stayed for Business, Excellent

Everything here was well done and the location was close enough to work to be convenient, while still near fun sights. Wifi was great (which can be rare at these kinds of hotels) and the morning breakfast was excellent.

Fun old bldg architectural details. We had 1 wall of our room as exposed brick. Very close to Union square and China town. Parking garage across the street! We even walked down to Fisherman's warf.

More than your standard

Aside from the prehistoric elevator and the bare bones amenities (even though they do serve you a free breakfast - very basic but you can eat what you like as much as you want) there was very little wrong with my stay. Just don't expect a pool or a fitness center. The rooms were comfortable (if a bit spartan) and the housekeeping and maintenance staff kept everything clean and in proper order. The front desk staff was also pleasant, and answered a lot of my questions. Overall if you're young and just starting out, like me, or don't need a lot of frills this boutique hotel is a good value for your buck and is just off the popular Union Square area near the Muni bus system and the BART train systems that take you pretty much anywhere.
