Editorial review:

This lavish, historic hotel has an amazing location in the middle of Union Square. The room sizes vary though: the rooms in the newer tower are more contemporary, while those in the older section are smaller. The best part is the incredible public spaces and the delectable cuisine at the restaurant.

              8.2

              Right smack in the middle of everything. Staff were very friendly and excellent service.

              Breakfast was over priced. And when standing outside Hotel you do get hassled by bums on the street.

            • Single
              7.4

              Great location, reasonable cost.

              Window broken in my room (3088), could be opened to a dangerous size, couldn't organise a late checkout.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              The decor is very dark for summer visits. I would be nice to develop a bar/tea room at the top of the building for both light and views....

            • Older travelers

              Location

              Uncaomfortable seating, bathroom lighting not good.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Celebrated our first anniversary!

              I didn' t like the fact that they charged so much for valet when we were actually staying at the hotel.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              It is a great hotel in a terrific location. The room we had was superb and very well maintained. Staff we came into contact with were extremely helpful and courteous. A first class hotel that lives up to its reputation and rating.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Loved the location-great view and enjoyed the shopping!

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              A "Grand Dame" of a hotel...continue to come back for years. For me the best asset is its location.

              It is beginning to show areas of rundown...should be revamped soon.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Proximity to places of interest.

              Charging almost $15 per day for internet connection is outrageous in this day. Budget hotels provide it for free-that should be a given at a hotel like this. Having to go to the lobby for free wi-fi is a poor substitute. The entire operation is like this, however. Every place there can be an extra charge, it's there-and not insignificant. The restaurant prices are, in most cases double what we paid at better establishments in the City. Stop letting the bean-counters figure out how to chisel every last dime out of you. When I pay $250 a night I don't expect a shake-down for eveything else.

              Convenient location

              Room wasn't ready on time. Room was not in good condition, and missing glassware. Extra charge for internet is ridiculous. $50 for parking too much. extra tax charges were not mentioned as part of "total" room charge.

              This location was the best in San Francisco...so easy to access any city transportation offered in the city.

              The location and convenience are excellent. The history of the hotel and the decoration in the public areas, glass elevators--all just wonderful to experience. Loved all of that. The cafe in the lobby was a great way to grab a healthy, convenient meal without having to do the whole restaurant thing.... can't think of enough positives. Loved the green options and used the coupons for dinner in the Oak Room my final night

              The room had great features from the view to the amenities. It was extremely comfortable and set up for relaxing and work. Once disappointment was that the furniture was showing wear and tear. The pillows should be replaced. Dining in the Oak Room was disappointing. The baked potato was underdone and the filet mignon was tough. If I hadn't been using coupons toward the meal, I would have sent it back. Overall, though a very positive experience.

              they did not have body soap; only by special request. The chocolate covered strawberries were atrocious for $38. They should have just said that the strawberries were unavailable.

              Staff extremely helpful, big hotel room with fantastic view overlooking the city and union square, very friendly front desk, concierge able to create and reserve a great restaurant itinerary and the location of the hotel is central.
