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.

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.

The weather according to google in September would be in the 20s C. It's always cool in San Francisco according to the locals. Some of the hotels don't even have air conditioning. Enjoy your stay in Handlery, the staff is very nice and helpful.
