“Perfect location”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Just returned from 6 night stay...........nothing but good things to say.... Helpful staff, comfortable room .. Stayed in newer section....on street side... A little noise but city noise..not a problem... Loved having a balcony overlooking the street...would stay here again!

Room Tip: Higher rooms on street side have better views... Noise not a major issue

Had a few awesome days in early April. Fantastic location, amazing staff, servicw etc. Included breakfast was delicious. Only small issue was getting up to our room with luggage with two different buildings, wish someone had told us earlier about the car park entry direct to our floor.

Simple room but had everything that we needed. Good location, walking distance to everything we wanted to do. About a half hour walk to Fisherman's Wharf, which is right near where the boat tours to Alcatraz leave from. Do not eat at the Thai restaurant just down the road on the opposite side from the hotel. One of out entrees had raw chicken, and the pad Thai for main tasted like it was off. Fisherman's Wharf has lots of places to eat and they were all good.

Stayed at the handerly 10th till 14th of April on family vacation 2 adults 2 teenage girls very good hotel great location Central to everything right beside union square most of the tour buses stop there if your just doing tour of city don't book on internet first just go down to bus first it will be cheaper went to AT&T park to watch base ball game would recommend it to anybody easy to get to metro just 5 min walk from hotel 20 min from station Alcatraz the same tip for using cable car do not queue up for 1hour to buy tickets for it just go one block up the street from start. And jump on if that's full there will be another one along the way with nobody on it . If thinking whether to stay in handerly or fisherman wharf a decision I agonised over would strongly recommend handerly for location alone thanks to girl at front desk don't know her name went out of her way to find socket for me that I couldn't find anywhere an d for sending wine opener to room for us great stay thank you

Still the best place to stay in San Francisco good situation walking distance of the cable cars and shopping. In the evening there is a city buzz feel in the Union Square area and the hotel restaurant is great.Fishermans Wharf although worth a visit during the day I wouldn't stay down there as nothing much going on in evening really and very touristy too with the tacky shops etc

Room Tip: We had the premium rooms with a balcony city view which at night was great to watch the world go by...

If you're looking for a good 'steady ' hotel with a great San Fran city location then I'd recommend this hotel. It's right in the heart of the city and therefore a great base to explore this amazing city. Areas in which the hotel can improve :-
- Rooms. The 1st room we were allocated was worn/tired. I appreciate the hotel is old and this is a feature but a stained sofa and musky teak smell was very off putting
- Customer service. We were able to change to a cleaner yet smaller room BUT no apology from reception. Also every day, the front of house staff seemed to struggle to smile. In fact, the friendliest staff were the housekeeping staff (very good)
Other things to point out:-
- The Daily Grill is very good
- hotel security is very good
