Last trip to San Francisco we stayed in the Union Square Hilton. This time we chose another hotel. We wanted to stay in the Union Square area, however in summer all area hotels are a premium. If you are used to a last minute deal on one of the online travel sites you will probably not get a very good deal. Rather we reserved early and still saved about $100 dollars a night by staying a bit off the square, but still close to BART, MUNI and the Square. We chose the historic Hotel Whitcomb Rather than $260.00 - 350.00 per night we stayed for &199.00 per night. Now that we know their priceline discount rate we will call the desk next time and explain to them we used an online service last time and ask if they can sweeten the deal. Many times they will knock another $30-50 per night. Face it they have to pay the online providers a fee.
There are homeless in this area but none were problematic.
Whitcomb is located about 50 feet from the Civic Center BART location at 8th and Market Streets and about 3 long blocks from Powell and Market. The MUNI stop for the F Line and several other MUNI lines is about 30 feet from the hotel lobby. From there you can be down town in 5 minutes even in tight traffic, just jump off and see the historic trolleys turning at Powell and Market and up the hill (west) is Union Square.
