Always an Amazing Stay”

Location is fantastic, staff is always attenative, price is very reasonable

Being fortunate to live only a few hours from San Francisco, I have had the luxury of staying overnight in the city many, many times over the years. I've stayed at 1. 2 3 and 4 star locations, I've stayed near the airport, near the ocean, up high and down low. We usually end up near Union Square as it is a central location to most of the popular neighborhoods; you can easily walk to Chinatown, North Beach and the Wharf are a good walk or a short taxi or cable car ride away, and most of the city's public transportation is close by. That being said, there are some hotels near Union Square that I'd be a bit concerned about staying at. The internet along with TA and Agoda now give us, the traveler, a way to narrow down our choices and remove those questionable hotels from our list. Once you weed out the chaff you find the gems, The Inn at Union Square is one of those masterpieces. The staff at this hotel work so hard to keep you, the guest happy. I must single out Anna, on our most recent stay, who bent over backwards to take care of my wife and I on our recent anniversary stay. Amazing people at an amazing hotel in an amazing city!

Wonderful Honeymoon”

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Inn. The location was perfect! It is close to the cable car line and to Union Square. The area is safe and family friendly. The room was clean and the staff was wonderful. when we arrived they brought up a bottle of champagne and chocolates for us to enjoy on the first day of our honeymoon! We loved the wine and cheese in the evening. We were able to speak with other guests at the Inn. The hallways are small and so is the elevator but the building is older so do not expect a "fancy" modern hotel. The bathrooms are spacious and the shower was huge! There is no AC so be prepared to have your windows open. San Francisco has a cool climate so this was not an issue for us.

On holiday from the UK ”

My husband and I stayed at the Inn. We had the best time. I had never been to San Francisco and was not disappointed. The city is amazing. The staff at the Inn were helpful, kind, and made our stay in San Francisco special. They couldn’t do enough and the lovely touches the hotel provides like a homemade cookie in the late evening, free wine and cheese early evening with crackers, and other tasty nibbles was delicious the wines are excellent, soft drinks too. Breakfast is continental, which is more than enough. If you needed assistance with anything it was never too much for the staff. I can’t recommend this hotel enough and that’s down to everyone who works there. A big thank you from The Pillings

this hotel is a real find! brilliantly located right by union square, our king room was elegantly decorated; the towels, bathrobes and linens were top rate. but the best part was the super efficient and friendly staff, of housekeeping to ann at the front desk who went out of their way to meet guests' needs. our friend was late picking us up and as we waited at the lobby, ann solicitously offered us water and anything else we might need. truly service over and beyond! this is our new favorite hotel in sf! will definitely be back! thanks inn at union square!

Great hotel”

Friendly staff. Great continental breakfast. Comfortable room.

We had a wonderful stay at The Inn at Union Square. The staff was fantastic. Although all of the guests I saw were adults, our four-year-old son was treated with the utmost respect. The room was comfortable. We especially liked the separate sitting room with its own television. The breakfast buffet was fresh, plentiful and delicious. The coffee (Pete's) was especially good. The location was perfect, right in the heart of Union Square. The parking service was very efficient, though a bit pricey ($36 plus tax/day).

Fantastic staff, great location, rooms great

Had a fantastic stay at the Inn at Union Square. Cable cars are just around the corner, or if you like to walk its only a 15-20 minute walk to the piers, 10 minute walk to china town and the staff are SUPER friendly and helpful. Was so impressed by their friendliness it just made me feel welcome the moment I walked in the door. The room we stayed in was clean and well maintained and I loved the turn down service with the next days weather forecast included. Would definitely recommend staying in this hotel!

Small boutique hotel, literally across the street from Union Square. Excellent staff (Eguardo and Omar, you guys are awesome!), nice nook to enjoy complimentary breakfast, and a clean, tidy room with excellent internet. Our weekend stay in San Fransico saw a torrential downpour for two days, so the complimentary loaner umbrellas were a nice touch by the hotel (and under the circumstance, worth as much as the room!).

One of my favourite hotel ”

Booked this hotel because of the good reviews. True enough, I love this hotel! The hotel is stone throw from Union Square and cable car station is just 6-7mins walk. Though is a small hotel, it has the warmth, comfort and amenities other big hotels lack of. The room is spacious, clean and quiet. The hotel provides complementary fruits, wines, biscuits, cheese and yummy freshly baked chocolate cookies on daily basis. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends if they are travelling to SF.

Very impressed!”

We had an amazing stay here! The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome! We were given a glass of champagne when we checked in which was a nice surprise! They also gave us a free upgrade to a queen studio room which was much appreciated. :) Breakfast was included in the reservation and was lovely. The hotel itself is in the ideal location as it’s close to union square with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The only issues we had were that every time you left the hotel you had to log into the wifi every time you returned and the shower took a little while to heat up. We would totally recommend this place. :)

Charming hotel in center of Union Square”

We booked the deluxe queen room. The hotel reminds me of a typical European hotel. It feels historic, has small hallways and a small elevator, so the stairs were easier if you aren't carrying luggage. Each floor has a small sitting area. The hotel includes a continental breakfast, nice little wine reception in the evening and cookies before bed. The lobby is tiny, but the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I was surprised at the number of amenities for such a small hotel. Our room was really small, but fine since we were spending one night and had no plans to spend much time there. Our view was of a brick wall. The bathroom was newly renovated and very nice. The bedroom was in okay shape, so happy to hear that they are renovating those in early '17. Overall, it was a great location, reasonably priced hotel in a super-expensive hotel city. I'd stay again.
