Modern boutique hotel with recording studio near Union Square

Quirky, modern and ultra-hip, The Mosser Hotel is the only lodging option in San Francisco with a state-of-the-art recording studio on premises. Rooms in this Union Square hotel are clean and efficient. All have platform beds, while some have private bathrooms and others share. Annabelle's Bar & Bistro, the on-site restaurant, utilizes organic ingredients sourced directly from area farms.

Highlights
  • State-of-the-art recording studio
  • On-site Annabelle's Bar & Bistro
  • Platform beds
  • Walking distance to shopping at Union Square and Westfield Centre mall
Rooms

"The Mosser," as it's known locally, has 166 rooms in all -- 112 deluxe rooms with private bathrooms and 54 "economical" rooms with shared hall baths for travelers on smaller budgets. Each room boasts platform beds and vanity sinks. Rooms also come standard with robes, ceiling fans, hair dryers and free Wi-Fi. Many rooms have windows that look out onto busy city streets; some even have reading nooks built into bay windows.

Features

Opened in 1913 as the Keystone Hotel, the historic property was completely redesigned in 2003 and now feels modern and chic.

The centerpiece of that redesign was Studio Paradiso, a state-of-the-art recording studio that is available to hotel guests. Other standard amenities include ironing boards, two-line telephones and custom-designed furniture.

In early 2010, the hotel announced a commitment to embrace eco-friendly products in all the rooms. The Mosser family donates a portion of all hotel proceeds to reforestation, literacy and educational projects.

 

Dining

For a fabulous cocktail or tasty sandwich, pull up a stool at Annabelle's Bar & Bistro, a French-style eatery located on the ground floor. The restaurant features an eclectic wine selection.

Nice weekend in the big city

The location of The Mosser made it ideal for us. We walked to Folsom Street in SOMA area and to Union Square's shops. We were steps away from the Powell BART station and used the BART to get to and from the airport. We took a bus to Haight Ashbury. We rode the MUNI train to the Castro. We rode the cable car to Fisherman's Wharf.

Prefect location and average hotel

The location is really great, in downtown, close to the Walgreen, ATM and all kinds of restruants. The hotel is just so-so. Room is clean and comfortable but tiny.

Wow, smallest hotel room ever!

I guess I cant complain for the price, but that was one small hotel room! They made it work though. No desk or night stand really, just a bed, a chair, and a small stool that served as a flat surface for setting things down. Tiny sink in the main room separate from the bath room, which had a stand-up shower. No closet. One improvement would have been at least some hooks and hangers to hang clothes somewhere. But for the price, it was a good value. I would stay there again.

Cozy budget-friendly accommodations in Downtown SF

I had a pleasant one-night stay in a "Shared Bathroom Queen" which is a clean, fairly modern-looking room with about 80% of the floorspace occupied by a comfortable queen bed. Also in the room: a sink (with the usual hotel toiletries included), a VIZIO flatscreen TV, chair, stool and small bedside stand (with alarm clock). This compact arrangement worked out well for me since I was just at the hotel to relax a little, then sleep after a busy day in San Francisco. The shared mens bathroom was a bit cramped; it had just enough space for a toilet and its usage, but for me, that wasn't a big deal. I didn't use the shared shower and can't comment on that. The hotel staff were very friendly, and the free morning coffee and muffins in the lobby were a nice way to start the day. The location is excellent as well; it's a short walk away from the Yerba Buena Gardens, the Powell BART station, Market Street, the Westfield Shopping Centre and many dining options. If you need more space and/or privacy, consider one of their other rooms which include a bathroom, but if you're looking for a nice, little place to rest after spending time in the city, the "Shared Bathroom Queen" is an affordable option for one (or two) budget-conscious traveler(s).

Mosser Hotel

It is amazing to me that a really well-run budget hotel like this exists in downtown San Fran. It is family-run and at least some of the profits go to environmental projects. It seemed very clean and well-run; the staff are really pleasant and attentive. One caveat - the rooms are small. Shared bath facilities (at least in the budget rooms there and there are private baths available) may not be to everyone's liking but it was really no problem at all. It's downtown so not in a scenic neighborhood. Great little hotel especially if you are in SF for a conference like I was or don't plan on spending a lot of time in the room.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a Whole Foods about a 5 minute walk from the Mosser if you want to skip dining out every meal.

Time in the City

A great location just steps away from Bart and 2 major theaters. My favorite restaurant Annabel's located next door. Loved the corner room but not the tiny sink. Will be back.
