Very nice hotel close to everything
the Handlery is a family owned hotel, and it has just enough of everything to please a traveller. The hotel is not big, which is nice, the rooms are clean, and relatively up to date. If you are expecting a grand lobby, and ultra modern amenities, don't stay here, but if you like friendly service, good food (Daily Grill restaurant, a staple in SF), and comfort, they do a pretty good job. What we really liked was we had just a short walk from the Powell BART to the hotel, and there was a Walgreens right around the corner, for water, wine, and munchies. The rooms do not have mini bars, but a tiny fridge for beer or pop. The location of this hotel is amazing, right on Geary, and there are so many great things nearby, such as cable cars, shopping, restaurants, and any thing else you might want. On the down side, the in room coffee maker could be better, and I am guessing from our view that the views in this hotel are not worth cheering about, but they have a very nice pool, a rarity in this locale. The beds were very comfortable, the bedding clean and fresh smelling, the towels and robes were fresh and clean, which is all good. The staff are very friendly, and eager to help. Overall, I would return here for sure, its about location, comfort, and ease of movement, and this hotel was great.
