    Profile: Union Square

    Profile: Union Square

    Union Square has an upmarket, European feel, with well-heeled shoppers drifting through monolithic department stores and luxury boutiques in one of the world’s foremost shopping districts. Prada, Burberry, and Louis Vuitton all do a smashing business here. Many of the restaurants offer open-air dining and eclectic, world-spanning menus, running the gamut from Californian-Indian fusion dishes prepared by a Michelin-starred chef, to Italian-style pizzas enjoyed around communal tables.

    In the winter, the square’s a popular spot with native Californians who make a pilgrimage to see the giant Christmas tree and outdoor ice skating rink. Union Square’s theater district is also worth a journey, as it’s home to the famed American Conservatory Theater.

      This was a great little hotel in a fantastic location. The staff could not be friendlier or more welcoming. The room was a squeeze with four of us in it, but we were hardly in it as we were out exploring SF. Cannot wait to stay here again when next in SF.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      This is an absolute gem of a hotel. Location is a block from Union Square, so great for the start of sightseeing. The beds are comfy, rooms spacious and the bar a great place to unwind after a day sightseeing. The real ‘gem’ of this hotel is Cora on reception! Cheerful, helpful and nothing is too much trouble for her. Loved it!!

      Too Much Light

      I was placed in a room near the outdoor sign. This was fine until I realised there were no shut-out blinds. The room was too bright during the night. I needed to hang towels over the window, but this had minimum effect

      Stay here! You won't regret it!

      I LOVED this boutique hotel. First of all, the staff is amazing. So friendly and helpful. Secondly, the hotel is adorable with super creative amenities.Thirdly, the room was very comfortable and fun. My friend and I stayed here and were able to have adjoining rooms. That made the stay that much more fun. The location is great for restaurants and shopping, which we took full advantage of. I would recommend this hotel 100%.

      The staff and facility were wonderful. One tiny improvement would be to ensure the q-tip/cotton ball packet is sealed (not open) and filled with both cotton balls and q-tips. The packet in our room was opened and missing q-tips.

      Cool hotel in a perfect location

      Very soft beds. I was keep rolling onto my bf who is heavier than me. Had back pain next day. Free upgrade to king size room helped. King room has more space for suitcases also. Quite noisy, thin walls. Clean and comfortable bathroom. Great customer service. Bar open Thursday-Sunday and room service for food only. Location is a winner. I would stay again
