Good value lodging experience in a great location

Posted 23-Apr-2015
Pros: Location and clean & quiet room.
I needed a clean, comfortable & quiet room for under $500 a night that was close to SF's Financial District, and The Handlery delivered. My only complaints would be as follows: 1) Room service breakfast delivery at The Handlery doesn't start until 7am---which really means delivery closer to 7:15am. For business travelers they should be offering room service at 6am. If you've come from the East Coast, you're usually up and hungry by 5 or 6am---and need to get your act together for business meetings by 7am. You can't wait until 7:30am to grab a quick breakfast in your room and head on out.

Close to Union Square and other attractions.

Enjoyed our time at the Handlery and the closeness of favorite AD attractions. Did not like all the construction and torn up streets. Also plan ahead for route of arrival and departure have a plan B for both.

Pool shut, no accomodation for a late check out when we had a sick one year old with gastro. No help with doctors or anything. Horrible service and completely run down hotel.

Great location! The parking is too expensive. There is public parking less than 100 feet away, I will suggest you park your car there.

Just OK

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Price is high. Room and Washroom size is so small

Service at restaurant is too slow and food variety is also not enough for vegetarians.

Excellent location, close to cable car, restaurant

Posted 11-Apr-2015
Pros: Room size, clean, perfect location and reasonable price
Cons: Renew A/C
Location: Restaurants, Cable Car, Pubs, Shopping, BART station, walking distance from businesses centers
This hotel is perfectly located close to union Square, restaurants, shops and a lot of activity. The average price per night is good to be San Francisco Downtown, actually I would say is more affordable than the other hotels. And for the price you get a full , great size, clean, quiet room, full closet, full bathroom, a/c. You may get lower prices in other hotels in SF Downtown, but sometimes rooms are extremely small, or noisy, or smelly, or in the worst case SHARED BATHROOM. If I would need to select again, I will choose this Hotel.

Ok hotel - a little rough around the edges

Posted 08-Apr-2015
We were given a room "with a balcony" which turned out to be overlooking a courtyard with a pool that was being resurfaced AKA jack hammering. When I called to tell the desk they said they'd forgotten about that; hard to believe with how loud it was. The next room was quieter, luckily we'd planned on going out for the day. The bell staff were inattentive unless directly addressed. Just weird. Other than that it was fine.

Comfortable, clean, and convenient.

Posted 07-Apr-2015
Location: A very short walking distance to all transportation- you can take the BART from SFO to the Powell station and it is a 5-min walk to the hotel.
I was there for 5 days in April 2015. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. I like that the window would open (I was on the 3rd floor) so I could get some fresh air when I wanted. The only drawback is the shower stall only (no bath- and after days of walking, my legs could've used a soak). The free wi-fi worked well.
