Handlery Union Square Hotel
Ranked #72 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This was a good basic hotel in a good location. The only faults l can pick with this hotel was the poor water pressure in the shower (really bad!!!) and the staff in the restaurant were not the most friendly or helpful people.
The hotel was in walking distance (20mins) to the pier area, China town and your right in the middle of the shopping district if you want to shop it up.
Our room had two double beds and two tv's which was great and big enough for a family of three. Our room was also in the middle of the building and though there was no views it was good to not have the street noise!

We stayed for a week in one of the Heritage Rooms - ours was a bit small and lacked storage but the location of the hotel is very good with, even allowing for the hills, lots in walking distance and handy for the cable cars as well as trolley buses. Their restaurant, The Daily Grill, has heritage style and great food and service.

On a recent tour of the USA we stayed @ many hotels in California & the service was second to none here! The hotel is slightly old fashioned but the service is amazing they couldn't do enough for you & very convenient location!
We changed rooms as were booked in the old part which had no windows with a view & changed to 4th floor in new part, really clean nice room

Great location & great staff. They gave us the best info for the cable cars which was to go to Walgreens & get a 'Clipper Card' saved heaps of money! The view of the street was great & the breakfast was also really good. It was an overall lovely experience

This hotel is old style and very comfortable for a few days of staying in San Francisco.The rooms are large with nice furniture a very large beds.There is even a coffee machine in your room.Great outdoor swimming pool and a small fitness room.Position is right on Union Square, so central for most transport and trams which stop right outside the door.If you like a hotel with some caracter and history this is great for you.Staff are all very helpful and have good local knowledge.

Room Tip: If you want a peaceful night ask for a room at the back.We stayed in 231 which was great

Just got back from spending 9 nights at the Handlery. The service is awesome and we loved our room. The decor is warm and inviting. The housekeeping was impeccable. We stayed at a poolside room and it's really quiet at night even though it's half a block from Union Square. Close to really good restaurants and delis and great shopping nearby.
