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.

This is not a place to bring small children unless you are going to get one of the bigger rooms. We came in late and ended up with a tiny one. It sucked. If we could have changed hotels without a penalty I would have.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your family vacation to SF. I am very sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with your guestroom size. We do offer a variety of room types and are always willing to accommodate a room relocation if our guests are unhappy and we have something different available. Sometimes late at night we are sold out and don't have this option. I truly apologize if this was the case and appreciate you sharing your stay. We hope to have the chance to welcome you back and impress you on a future visit. Best, Paul K

First and foremost, read the fine print. I have never been charged full price for a hotel a month before visiting. That was very disappointing. And while I know it might not be their fault, this place added over 100$ per night in taxes and fees. Checking in was easy. The hotel

Thank you for being our guest and sharing your recent stay with us. We are pleased to hear you had a decent experience, but are sorry that overall you found room for improvement. We agree that our central downtown location may not be for everyone and try our best to help with the city sounds. We provide complimentary ear plugs and white noise application assistance in every room. We also have interior rooms that tend to offer a quieter experience and are happy to relocate a guest on request if we have something different available. We truly appreciate your review and hope that if travel brings you back to the Union Square area you will give us the chance to impress you in the future. Best Paul K

Hotel Union Square is the best deal for comfort and cleanliness downtown. Close to everything for shopping and easy to get to from anywhere. No real amenities but having so many amazing restaurants and bars within walking distance, there is no need to eat at the hotel anyway.

The pictures of the hotel do not match the reality. Unfortunately, this hotel is more like a hostel which is completely unreasonable for the price point. The elevator wreaked of vomit and urine every single day. I would not recommend staying at this hotel as I believe there are

Thank you for being our guest and sharing this unfortunate experience with us. I am shocked to hear about the elevators and will have my team look into this right away. We take guest feedback and cleanliness very seriously and are known for our high levels of standards from many previous mentions on review sites like this one. I can assure you this is not the stay we strive for our guests to have and we wish your time would have been more enjoyable. We hope to welcome you back and impress you on a future visit. Best, Paul K

Great place if you're looking to do touristy activities. Online pics of room are misleading and not as big as shown. Get room on new side of building. Prob won't be returning; too pricey for the value.

Yes. Also, since I arrived very late (around 5 a.m.), they let me stay until 3 p.m. Very nice people.

I am sure you can check in late. We stayed in the Queen room, it was plenty big enough but keep in mind the boutique hotels in San Francisco do not usually have large rooms. I would think the economy petite is going to be very small-but who cares if its just where your going to sleep?

We paid $40 to park there at the hotel. They have very limited parking so you pay a premium for it.

"I'd recommend to get their premium room with King Bed"
"King size bedrooms are the best but they do face the busy street. If the sound of the city doesnt bother you, you'll love it."
"Don't stay here."
"Leave the building and check in at the hotel in front of Union Square."
"Don't overlook the courtyard. The other sides are much more interesting."
