We stayed at Hotel Rex from July 12 - 15 for a weekend getaway. The hotel is in a great location right near Union Square on the same block as the Larkspur Hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and gave the hotel a small town B&B vibe. There is a little pug named Max that hangs out in the lobby which was a fun touch. The lobby has the feel of an old study - very cozy, lots of books and best of all, a bar with great drinks and delicious food.
We got a very good deal considering it was the middle of summer in the heart of San Francisco. This was my first experience at a Joie de Vivre hotel and I hope to visit more very soon.
