This charming place is halfway between a hotel and a bed and breakfast. It reminds me of some places I've stayed in in Europe. It is not for people who want everything big and modern, but it has what we needed. We booked a room...More
It was several years since I had been to San Francisco and I wanted to be close to Union Square - this was the one chosen and it did not disappoint. My room included a bathroom and was on the fourth floor looking onto a...More
Changed hotels at the last minute to Golden Gate and glad I did. It is located right up from Union Square and Chinatown and right on the cable car line. The building is a bit older and has an ancient, but working elevator. Room was...More
I love this hotel and try to stay here whenever I'm back in San Francisco. When I lived there, it was always top in my recommendations for out of town guests. It is both uniquely charming and a wonderful price for the outstanding location, right...More

Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

San Francisco is very walkable, as long as you don't mind hills. But in general, most people do not need a car unless they plan on many excursions outside the city. We are closest to Nob Hill, Chinatown, and Union Square.
You can walk to Fisherman's Wharf, but it is a bit of a trek - almost 2 miles via the most direct route; about an hour's walk in a more roundabout route that bypasses all the hills.
Hope this helps!
Our complimentary continental breakfast includes fresh juice, warmed croissants and muffins, coffee and tea. It starts daily at 8am. Yes, we would be delighted to make alternative breakfast recommendations.
