Union Square, San Francisco

The hotel

If you want to stay within contactless payment of San Francisco’s Union Square and the world-class stores and boutiques that radiate from it, but fear such a central location won’t leave you with much to spend, this family-run hotel is exactly what you’re looking for. Located half a block from Union Square, The Handlery has a classic charm to its décor, and prides itself on its attentive service. There’s a heated courtyard pool – ideal for recharging after a day of bargain hunting – a fitness centre and sauna, and the classy Daily Grill, which is a favourite with locals and guests alike.

Really nice hotel with welcoming staff. Room was very big and contained a television, as well as 2 small sofas. The room was clean, tidy and modern. The pool was accessible and to our surprise was heated all day. The staff were very generous and left us with a bottle of bubbly in order to celebrate a special birthday.

We also had breakfast vouchers which we could use in the restaurant attached to the hotel. Breakfast was big and always delicious. All in all, this hotel has a great location, kind staff and we wouldn't hesitate in staying here again. Read less

I booked this hotel purely because it looked like it had a decent swimming pool and it was in a central location. If I was going again I would book a hotel in Fisherman's Wharf as all the activities we did were over that way and so we would have the option of going back to the hotel to chill for an hour or so.

Good hotel, nothing special. Reception staff very good and offered advice on buses etc. Room was large with two queen beds, again decor was slightly dated, but comfortable. Pool area very small with limited sunshine

We stayed at the Handlery end of July as we were running the San Fran marathon. We were disappointed to find out that breakfast would not be available due to a leak. We were given vouchers that were redeemed with receipts from breakfasting elsewhere! Not quite as convenient as we would have liked!! The hotel staff were friendly and helpful… Read more

The hotel staff were fantastic and the location was Superb. We enjoyed our extended stay of 12 days and felt very comfortable. The air conditioning was not the best but not really required in San Francisco. It was easy to walk most places or get just about anywhere in San Francisco. I can recommend the Handlery to anyone.
