Where History Meets the Moment The Warwick San Francisco is a captivating reflection of the city in which it resides, striking a perfect balance between authentic history and modern hospitality. Ideally located just steps from bustling Union Square and its world-class shopping, theaters and landmark attractions, the Warwick is a residential-style hideaway at the intersection of action and allure. Guests need to venture no further than the lobby for an authentic taste of San Francisco. Aveline, is the Warwicks innovative dining concept by Chef Casey Thompson featuring her soulful new Californian cooking. Just across the elegant lobby, The European, is a stylish and intimate bar serving European influenced cocktails with a local twist. Notably, the Warwick shares the same architect as San Franciscos Coit Tower and City Hall, Arthur Brown Jr. A historic hotel for the modern traveler, the Beaux-Arts style hotel was established in 1913 as The Maryland Hotel and was affectionately called, The House of Sunshine and Hospitality. Throughout the hotels design and service, stories of past and present are told. In its simplicity and grace, The Warwick San Francisco does not dictate the experience of its guests; rather it serves as an elegant backdrop for their own distinct story to unfold.

Dining

Aveline
The Warwick San Francisco boasts one of the citys most exciting and innovative restaurant concepts, Aveline by Chef Casey Thompson. The restaurant showcases her soulful, signature bent on new Californian cooking paired with the perfect wine, beer, or cocktail. The intimate setting displays a light, feminine, and approachable design aesthetic that provides a perfect backdrop of cool tones to showcase Caseys vivid dishes and thoughtful composition. The restaurant also features a special chefs table with a birds eye view of the restaurants open kitchen. Signature cocktails created by master bartender, Adam Wilson, are available at Aveline. Open seven days a week for dinner service from 5:30pm-11:00pm and for weekend brunch from 11:00am-2:00pm.
The European
Throughout history, and especially during Prohibition, traditional American cocktail recipes have been taken overseas and imported back with a decidedly European influence. The name reflects this sensibility and style, expertly mixing old with new, as well as a drink menu featuring mostly European spirits including aperitif, champagne, and lower-proof cocktails with a regional twist. The European also features a Now & Then pairing of a contemporary cocktail served alongside a taste of the drink in its vintage form. The dark and rich interior with cozy seating areas entices patrons to connect and mingle over master barmans Adam Wilsons creative cocktails and a fun bar-exclusive menu from Chef Casey Thompson. Open seven days a week from M-Th 5:00pm-12:00am and F-S from 5:00pm-1:00am and for weekend brunch from 11:00am-2:00pm.

Old-style charm

Location is very convenient to Union Square and Theater District. Service is good and rooms have an old-style charm. No ice or vending machines; they'll deliver ice to your room. No pool or fitness center on site. Wireless internet available in room for a fee, and there's a laptop with free internet available near the lobby. Best if you don't have a car; valet parking is expensive.

Hop-on hop-off tour buses from Union Square, two blocks from the hotel, go to the most-visited parts of the city.

Quaint Quiet and Quality

Great location, just minutes walk from Union Square, and no hills to climb! Really helpful and friendly staff, couldn't ask for better. Great restaurants, just minutes walk away. A very personal experience, nothing like the souless big hotels we've stayed in, and really comfy beds!

Warwick review

We enjoyed our stay at the Warwick very much. The staff was very helpfull and always polite and friendly. It is located close to the cable car turn around and many fine eateries and close enough to walk to China Town. The only criticism we had was on the size of our original room. It was just too small to enjoy. We switched to a corner room for the same price and it was perfect.

Great hotel!

A great hotel - lovely rooms, and tea and cookies in the afternoon. The Warwick is just a few blocks' walk from Union Square and Chinatown. Also close to the Powell BART station, the Powell cable car turntable, and streetcars and buses on Market, so an easy trip to Fisherman's Wharf and Golden Gate Park. There's even a computer for free guest use in the lobby. There was just a bit of noise from the street at night.

The good, the bad and the average!

It's a great location, in the middle of the city. However, cleanliness was our most cocerned; bed sheet was not change during our three days stay. Bath room was even worst leaking fawcet and bath room cabinet smell like rat residue.

The Warwick is absolutely wonderful!

I traveled to San Francisco for the first time on an anniversary trip with my boyfriend and it could not have been better! (Other than the storm the first day) We arrived at the Warwick and stunned at how beautiful the front lobby and bar were, and how nice the front desk service was, and that set the expectations high for the rest of the hotel and the room and they did not disappoint! The room was the perfect size, not too small, not too big, and we did not find one flaw with it. There was even a great view of downtown from the window! It is perfectly centralized downtown in the heart of union square and you will have plenty of great places to see, shop and eat within walking distance! No need for a car at all. Only a shuttle to and from the airport and a map to walk around the city. I will definitely be staying at the Warwick again on a return visit. :)

4 Days In SF Warwick

Our room was adequate for 2 adults; no wasted space...bed, furniture, TV and bathroom. Super location near Union Sq on Geary St. We do not use a car so public transportation access is important. This was no problem. Breakfast in their attached restaurant was VG and as reasonable as any other place around. An internet terminal was available for our use. Did not have dinner in their restaurant, but I understand that it is good.[...]Would stay there again.
