Union Square
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.

It's a lovely hotel if you ask for a room in the front you have lovely large bay windows it it's a little bit noisy, the area is lovely no resort fees but a $50 a night deposit with a credit card or cash returned at the end of your stay

Certainly recommend a taxi at that time of night. The Handlery is a great place to stay, incredibly well situated and Union Square is always "interesting", with some unusual personalities around in the evening! Really enjoyed my stay there.

I also don’t know where the station is but would suggest you email the hotel and ask their advice. Alternatively Uber are readily available and were excellent when we were there.
