The reason i booked Cartwright was it's location and reviews. After staying there i was happy with my decision and what i got. Cartwright gave me what i needed (location, rooms & service) The receptionist lady was a better concierge than their official concierge. Special thanks to her for her genuine care and assistance.

Stayed here because I had to add a day to my trip to The City, and my other hotel was booked. Overall a pleasant experience. The hotel is dated, like many of the other smaller hotels in the Union Square area, but the service is very friendly, the rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. There is a coffee...

My husband and I booked this hotel after he surprised me with a trip to San Francisco. With less than a week to book something and little experience on tourist attractions, I booked this hotel based on its proximity to Union Square. We took the BART from the airport and got off at Powell Station. The BART is very manageable....

I stayed at this property prior to the renovations and I could see that it needed updating. The current management is doing a good job of renovating the rooms.

Okay. Cleanliness was not brilliant. The floor in my room consistently felt dirty underfoot. Some staff members were wonderful. Others were rude and unoccomodating. The room was quite small. Not an issue for a solo travel. But two people could not have fitted in my room!

Great location. Small but very cozy hotel. Staff was excellent. Rooms were tiny but comfortable. The beds were comfortable, although an extra blanket would have been nice for the cold San Francisco eves. Also, a non dairy creamer for the coffee would be a great idea.

Hotel had everything we needed, and location couldn't have been better. Great sports bar across the road and very close to Union Square, shops and BART. Staff were friendly and for the price, rooms were comfortable.
