A weekend in SF

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
The staff at the reception desk is really friendly and helpful !!! Rooms are simply but clean. Beds are comfortable. Lots of useful information in the nice entrance hall. If you just need a place to sleep and don't spend much too time in the room itself this is a great place to stay.

Older hotel, close distance to union square

Would not recommend Thu, Jul 23, 2015
We chose this hotel based on closeness to Union Square and for the price it was okay. The lobby is beautifully decorated but we had to park our car a few blocks away which is an inconvenience. The rooms are very outdated and I was itching the whole night, we ended up changing rooms at 2AM in the morning because I felt our room might have had bed bugs I was so itchy. We had to go across the street at 2am for Benadryl and after we changed rooms the front desk did offer a wave in our parking fees. Still I would not come back to this hotel, very outdated, seems unclean and bad experience.

Classic Beauty

Would recommend Tue, Jul 21, 2015
The Cartwright Hotel Union Square was perfect for my quick trip into the city to catch a show. I loved the classic early 20th century architecture. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. My room was on the small side as is for the era of the construction but the bathroom was a very good size and all was comfortable and bright. I would recommend this hotel for a romantic getaway to the city or for a single traveler like myself.

Kitschy and quaint

Would recommend Sat, Jul 18, 2015
It was just one night after a business trip and my friend and I were exhausted. The hotel staff was very helpful about storing our luggage all day before we could check-in and letting us hang around their lobby. The room was small, and our bed leaned a tiny bit to one side, but it was still pretty comfortable. For the size, the layout was really good. Bathroom tiny but functional. Loved all of the tiles in there, felt very 60s modern. If you want luxury this isn't for you but the staff, room and location were all good enough for a comfy stay at a reasonable price.

Quick Hotel Change

Would recommend Thu, Jun 4, 2015
Conveniently located, very friendly staff and adequate accommodations. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was very small but functional and clean. Nice change of pace from your standard hotel, but if you want amenities galore this will not be the place for you. We just needed something safe, clean and easy to get around from for one night and this fit the bill. The staff was very accommodating in helping us sort out travel plans to Sonoma.
