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.

Great location and price

Hotel room (corner room) was large and very comfortable. I would stay here again. Easy access to shopping (high end and local), buses, BART. Try the Olympic Restaurant across the street and a half-block down (3-egg omelettes, toast, potatoes/tomatoes for $8.95--the best deal in SF !) I walked everywhere including to the pier, Chinatown and more.

Warwick Hotel SF

This hotel is in a terrific location, walking distance to Chinatown, Union Square, Little Italy, etc. We loved that the building and rooms made you feel like you were really in San Francisco, they give you that unique feeling of staying somewhere truly SF. Marble in the bathroom,great crown molding everywhere, very quiet! We have stayed in other more modern hotels but you lose that SF feel. Rooms are a little small, but location, cleanliness, and great staff make up for that. Not to mention---the MOST comfortable bed we have ever slept on in a hotel! great beds!

Very Charming!

The staff were very nice. Our room was very clean, a little small but it worked perfectly for a one night stay. The Cafe downstairs in the lobby area has good food and some good wines to choose from. My husband and I will come back to the Warwick for another stay.

Great location!

This hotel is in a fantastic location...a short walk to nearby Union Square, the Rodeo Drive of San Francisco. Its also a 10-minute walk to Chinatown. A cab ride to see the Giants is less than $10. Overall, the hotel was old but beautifully restored. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Very good value for the $$.

Great location

The Warwick in San Francisco has a great location near Union Square and the cable car lines. There were lots of restaurants and shopping nearby within easy walking distance. Although the room was small, it was nicely decorated with antiques and very comfortable and clean.

A San Francisco Gem

Upon arriving in San Francisco, I was very pleased at the hotel that I chose. The room was small, but very nicely furnished, clean, and comfortable. I slept well every night, with my window open and very little noise. The hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. I was greeted with a smile every morning and evening. They also gave me some great restaurant reccommendations. The location can't be beat; Warwick Regis is two blocks from Union Square and surrounded by amazing shopping, museums, and food. My SF experience was first class thanks to the friendly, efficient people at Hotel Warwick.

Convenience and value

The Warwick Regis Hotel San Francisco reminded me of an older, in-town European hotel -- tighter spaces and darker decor than the new American hotels. However, the public areas do have touches of elegance (piano in a small but plush lobby, uniformed doorman) and the room, while obviously carved out of a formerly larger space, was quite comfortable, clean, and well serviced. The shower was actually larger than anything you'll find in Europe, or in most American city hotels for that matter. For a closet there was a freestanding, creaky wooden armoire -- a little tight, but perfectly functional and kind of funky. And then there's the neighborhood! You are a short stroll from Union Square and surrounded by world class hotels that charge many times more. Unless you are rich or on a corporate card, the Warwick is an unbeatable value and a smart alternative to the St. Francis, etc.

Recommend Highly

Highly recommend this hotel to all! We lived in San Francisco just blocks from here for over ten years, and I always thought how nice it would be to stay here. Now that we have relocated to southern California, I stay here as often as I can. Delightful rooms, great staff.
