Handlery Union Square Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location, large rooms , friendly staff and great price/value ratio

This was a great place to stay for my work trip. Close enough to walk to my HQ office and near Union Square, making it convenient to get around the city. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was updated within the past few years but still kept some of the SF charm that I love and miss so much from my days of living there. I'll be back.

Room was clean, but dark and old. Plug at the desk did not work well.

Got the standard room pretty small,but decent but looks nothing like the pictures you see online. You could hear our tv at medium volume down the hall, and doors slam, and everything which made it uncomfortable. WiFi is available but it could only be one user at a time which sucked.

The staff at the Handlery Hotel were all extremely pleasant and helpful. I really appreciated that. Being able to swim in a heated outdoor pool in December was awesome. The room was great for the most part, but the mattress was slightly harder than what I'm used to. I tried to turn up the heat, but was unable to and the extra blanket in the closet had tons of small holes and was very thin. So unfortunately, I didn't have a restful sleep. It might be worth investing in some thicker, higher quality blankets and duvets. But overall, very lovely and ridiculously close to Union Square and public transit.

Great location! Nice room, very comfortable bed. Very close to union square & great shopping

Room was very stuffy, only window opened on the interior courtyard where there are HVCA units that create a lot of noise. Not very comfortable. Ask for a street view room if you go. Otherwise hotel is cute.

Nice Hotel, near great shopping and dining... Great Staff...

Very clean and professional staff:) location great, walking distance to transportation and restaurant.

The fine accommodations and friendly, helpful staff made a special trip even more special.

Comfortable hotel right in the centre of the city i.e. Westfield Centre, cable cars, buses, Union Square, restaurants and Powell Street BART station. Latest visit was the second and, as at the first visit, the hotel did not disappoint.

We loved the location and the staff was great. The only complaint is that there was a smell on our floor and it lingered into our room.

Hotel is is a great location. Easy to get to places. Our room was clean and roomy with a view of the pool. Would definitely stay here again.

I’ve been to San Francisco several times, this hotel was reasonably priced & in a good location. The hotel showed a little wear, but was in overall good condition. The staff was professional, but no one was very personable. I’m a little disappointed in San Francisco. The conditions in the city were distressing as there’s such a large homeless population. It’s no longer a feel good place that I want to go when on vacation. The Handelry, however was a good place to stay!

Good hotel with nice pool. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

Nice hotel. Great location. Nice shops close by. Nice amenities. Served its purpose for our family trip !!

We stayed at the pool level and heard weird loud mechanical noises at night and complained about it with the hotel staff. They said they were not aware of anything. Then, after realizing that our air/heat fan was broken and had moved to another room, the sounds continued. Eventually we let the fan run all night as a white noise generator to be able to sleep. It is hard to believe that the staff would have been unaware of this noise or that we were the only guests complaining about it. Bottom line, if you can’t sleep at night nothing else matters.

This hotel is well located. Within walking distance of the Powell St. (if you are arriving by BART from SFO). there is also a bus on Geary St. to go to Baker Beach. The room is a little small but I was alone si it's not a problem. The in-room safe uses a key (The key was hard to remove from the lock) and a coffee machine with a small fridge. There was a Iron board, hair dryer. The furnishing feels a bit old but it was very clean. The WiFi is easy to connect to but it wasn't enough to do some Netflix. There is a business room in order to print your boarding pass. They also had a swimming pool but I did not have a chance to use it (business travel). I would definitely stay there again.
