Handlery Union Square Hotel
I could have got lost in my hotel room. It was huge. A massive lounge suite, laid out with the latest copies of publications like Time Magazine and a complimentary basket of fruits and other goodies, awaited me as I opened the door. The window, which looked straight down on the street, gave a good view of Union Square, with its regular trams and constant crowds.
Handlery Union Square Hotel, built in 1908 and containing 284 rooms, offers a plethora of amenities, including a heated outdoor pool and a sauna. There is a gift shop on site, where the latest and most expensive San Francisco merchandise is available. There is also a barber located within the hotel if you are feeling a bit shaggy, and don't want to look like the beggers that line the street outside. Covered valet parking is also available.
The Daily Grill Restaurant is attached, providing breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, and also includes a well stocked bar. They also provide room service for the hotel.
The hotel is within a few minutes walk of the hugely massive Westfield Shopping Mall, with its extensive food court. Macy's is also literally right out the hotel's door, so you don't have to carry your purchases too far.
A 10 minute walk will find you at the Moscone Convention Center and the Museum of Modern Art in one direction, and China Town in the other. It is a steep and long walk to Fishermans Wharf, but the cable car is nearby to save your legs.
My room was by the street, and unfortunately had no sound proofing. It is a busy street, and my sleep was disturbed constantly by yelling, cars, and sirens. But apart from that, it was a beautiful and friendly hotel. [more ]
