Check in and leave the status quo behind. Hotel Emblem in downtown San Francisco, where Nob Hill meets Union Square and the Theater District, is a haven for those that think as boldly as they live. Inspiring conversation in all the right ways, with plenty of modern provocations, Hotel Emblem will feature a cocktail-focused restaurant and 96 vibrant guestrooms. Every corner is designed to spark creativity, from the bar inspired by the Beat Generation, to the book-filled Writer’s Alcove in the lobby, to the eclectic guestrooms, where patterns play and an expressive vibe thrives. This hotel is a muse – and you will be, too. Lend your voice at the weekly poetry slam. Get lost in the flow of nightly live jazz. Tap out a few thoughts on the lobby typewriter.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

As you enter the lobby, you get that cool Beat Generation vibe from the décor and we were immediately greeted by Julia at the front desk with a friendly smile and offer of that day's welcoming cocktail. Check-in was fast, easy and Julia arranged for our car to be valet parked.
