Hotel is ehhhhh

Posted 21-Sep-2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Pricing and more modern feel.
Location: shopping, dinner
Right in the middle of Union Square, so good location, but the price for that little room is ridiculous. Older hotel with little to no upkeep or they just choose to go for that older look. Overall good location but no value for the price of the room.

The St. Francis IS San Francisco...

Posted 21-Sep-2017
I'm from the Bay Area but moved out of the state 20 years ago. So much has changed here (everywhere I fear) but not the St.Franis Hotel in Union Square. There is no better location if you're visiting S.F. and hoping to see the sites. The hotel is elegant and the staff genuinely seemed to care that my stay was enjoyable. There's a quiet, comfortable bar in the lobby. Spent two nights and I can't wait to return.

Iconic San Francisco right on Union Square.

Posted 20-Sep-2017
Close to restaurants, cable cars and Chinatown. It's a post-1906 earthquake building so sounds carry from room to room. But it is so beautiful, that doesn't matter.

Location location location

Posted 20-Sep-2017
Pros: Location
Cons: A/C seem to not cold per temperature not sure if they're blocking. We turn to 65 degrees but we couldn't sleep well the first night.
Location: Perfect location, in the heart of shopping, restaurants & transportation
I took my son to San Francisco for his 25 Birthday since he never been there before. I booked this hotel base on others review & very happy with my decision. The hotel is in perfect location, right in the middle of everything. You're basically can travel without pack your luggage, next door to the left is Victoria secret, left corner is Sak fifth avenue, right corner is Express, right hand side is big Macy's & down the street is Nordstrom. Although we didn't shop cause we're busy with other activities & if you step to front door there is hop on hop off bus tour. The hotel staffs are very nice, they're also offer late checkout on Sunday. We had a great time & definitely come back here again.

Historic Feel on Union Square

Posted 15-Sep-2017
A fair number of indigent members of the community congregate around Union Square. If you are not use to seeing that or uncomfortable with it you might want to find another hotel. Otherwise, the staff, rooms, ambiences of the hotel was excellent. Valet Parking is around $75/night so just keep that in mind.
