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.

    Nice little gem

    Very nice and clean hotel and room. Welcoming by staff & very helpful. Went out their way to help with our needs. Close to restaurant and parking garage. Also walking distance to union station. Would stay here again.

    Charming place

    I liked everything about this hotel except for the mattress. It was horrible! It was so hard and it felt like the springs were about to puncture through the top. The room would not cool off even when we dialed the thermostat down, but it’s a really old building and we were on a high floor, so I suppose it’s to be expected. Loved everything else about this place. Very charming and adorable.

    Charming and affordable gem

    Great little boutique hotel in Union Square. Excellent service upon arrival at the front desk. The hotel has an adjoining restaurant calledJasper’s which served fabulous food at a great price. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a clean, modest hotel without all the bells and whistles of a high end hotel chain and the price! Would definitely recommend and return! A great plus is that there are lots of restaurants in walking distance.

    The hotel is very nice friendly staff. The only problem I had we had some very bad neighbors that party all night. I called the front and they stoped for like and hr. And started the party again. I was extremely tire so I slept couple of hrs. But the party kept walking me up :(. Because of that I don’t think I will stay at this hotel again.

    Good value

    Great hotel and great value. Staff was very helpful. Only complaint is that I paid for a city view but when I was checking in, the gentlemen behind the counter said he only had rooms on the 7th floor available without a view. It wasn't until I made a point about paying more for the room with the view that he accommodated it and somehow found a room on the 14th floor with a view. The building has 17 floors. Since the city has gone plastic bag free, the trash cans in the room don't have trash bags. Weird getting used to that but good I guess. Mini fridge was included in the room. Very clean room. Bathroom was a little small. The neighborhood around the hotel is a little shifty and def not somewhere you want to be wandering around at night. It's located on the border of the tenderloin and union square neighborhoods. Overall a great value. They even have a special filtration water machine in the lobby to fill up your water bottle!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Beautiful views, and is located in a great area -- but be warned, don't try to walk unless you're good with going up hills. San Fran will give you a great leg workout! :) Two issues I had with the property. One is that their website mentions a $10 voucher to Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen as something included in the Guest Amenities Fee. I did not receive this at check-in, and when I asked the front desk staff about it the next morning, she had no idea what I was talking about. Wish I would have brought up the website, because this was a little disappointing. The website also says that a choice of personalized room scent should be available, but it was also not offered. Second -- room temperature. The thermostat is not programmable, and turning it on allows the room to be kept at around 72-73 degrees F. I did not realize this until I mistakenly turned it off, left for the day, and got back to a room at 80 degrees F. Wish I could have changed this to a more desirable temperature, but I'm glad that I managed to get it figured out before my perishables were affected.
