Friday night in the Library Bar, sipping a favorite liberation and listening to the chanteuse sing in French......what more can one ask? This is why the Hotel Rex is the only place to stay in San Francisco.

The position of this hotel could not be better, being within five minutes walk of Union Square. The staff were welcoming and helpful, just what you need after an eleven hour flight from the UK. Our room was at the front of the hotel, and this is the only reason we have not given an excellent rating. We were there for three nights from Friday - Sunday and the noise from the street outside was very loud. Late night revellers, and then early morning bin men!! Having said that, that is my only complaint, and we enjoyed our stay there very much. My advice - if you have the choice, pick a room at the rear of the hotel.
The library bar/lounge area is lovely and a great place for an early evening glass of wine (free) and a bar snack or meal if you don't feel like venturing out again.
We didn't breakfast at the hotel, preferring to go out and get an authentic "American Diner" experience! However overall I would highly recommend the Rex for it's friendly staff, location, cosy rooms and the lovely bar area, so much nicer than the large, soulless hotels which all look the same.
If you are coming to San Francisco, stay here!

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear will be quieter

Rex Hotel is within walking distance of theatre, dinner, and Union Square. The staff is friendly and helpful. The ambience shows character: library bar, paintings of women, literary quotations on walls. The free glass of wine was a nice touch. The room was comfortable and quiet.

Room Tip: They recommended a room facing away from the street for a quieter experience.

Ths hotel is exactly what we were looking for...a boutique hotel in downtown San Francisco. Rooms are cozy, clean and the bed is very comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The bar atmosphere with the library setting is fun. We will definitely be back. Thanks for an awesome three nights at the Rex.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet, but we were in the city and wouldn't have minded the noise.
