Parking is too expensive... it should be complimentary for guests or at least offer a better rate. Rooms are not hermetic. There is a strange odor inside the room. My room had no nice sight... emergency stairs!

I'm taking a boy's weekend to San Francisco with my son for his Birthday. Saw Hotel Union on Groupon and the place looks really nice and right where I want to stay. Called to book the stay, briefly describing what I want for the reservation based on what I saw on Groupon. The gal taking the reservation was very nice...

Terrible room sizes and accommodations. Completely misleading information and pictures of actual rooms. No windows, no ac, toilets pressed up against a wall, overall a horrible place to spend the night after a long day at a trade show. Will not be returning.

With the deco lobby and the Maltese Falcon on permanent loop, the fabled speakeasy with an underground walkway to John's Grill and the Dashiell Hammet connection, this hotel has atmosphere to spare. I've been coming here for over 15 years, and I've seen it go through a lot of changes in ownership and management, but I've never had a bad...

This location and price cannot be beaten! It is just steps from every form of public transportation. If you are unable to walk hills, you will not have to walk one single hill to get on the Bart, tram, bus, or trolley. The staff is so friendly! We will definitely stay here again!

We have stayed at Hotel Union Square many times, great location and value. Enjoyed happy hour complimentary wine :) What we did not like were the flat and hard pillows - not comfy at all and could definetly use improvement.

Stayed here in August of 2016. We absolutely loved this hotel. The location was great and staff were kind and helpful. The atmosphere of the hotel definitely gave off the SF vibes. Although the room was small it was kept clean.

The photos on the TripAdvisor page are, to say the least misleading. Not only are rooms tiny but everything is aging poorly and the windows face another building 6ft away ... It may have been a boutique hotel years ago but now it just looks like an old poorly maintained one ...

This was the perfect location for us visiting San Francisco. 200 meters and you habe BART, busses, cables car and just around the corner a almost cheap parking garage. The room was good for us ( 2 adults and a 2 year old ). Great service!
