We stayed here because we knew that union square is a very central place to access the best parts of San Francisco. The staff are helpful. The rooms are nice and clean and the complimentary wifi is fast and easy. The restaurant attached to the hotel was great also. Will stay nowhere else if visiting San Francisco again.

Everyone at the Handlery Union Square were absolutely wonderful, they were incredibly helpful and polite. We arrived here after getting married in Las Vegas a few days before and I'd emailed them prior to ensure we got a quiet room - they were incredibly accommodating and had upgraded our room and left us a bottle of sparkling wine and goodies which made us feel so special. The room was lovely and even though we were on the street side, we didn't find the noise bothered us at all. We had breakfa... Read more

The Handlery is an older hotel with modern amenities and a top-notch staff. Every restaurant recommendation from the concierge was spot on.They have a pool, a gym, a garage attached to the hotel ( some other similarly priced hotels have parking - but it is a hike and on a cold, rainy, blustery day - that's not fun.). The hotel is very quiet, beds are comfortable, location is great, neighborhood safe ( not so a few block away). We could walk or take public transportation to just about everything.... Read more

Hotel was in a good place just off Union Square, very close to all types of shopping and the bus tours. Was windy when you came out of hotel! Room was ok but the view was over roof space, check to seeps where you will be if you want a view but we didn't send much time in room anyway. Breakfast was very good, got vouchers for two days but assume this was due to the one lift not working, we did a lot of stair walking! Staff weren't very good at dealing with a request we made but it is a city.

We enjoy staying at the Handlery with their friendly staff, Macy's discount, and proximity to the BART Powell Station, cable cars, and Muni bus and subway lines. Although they were experiencing problems with one of their elevators in the older part of the hotel, they opened up their service elevator to hotel guests. I was also amused by their providing of foam ear plugs for those not accustomed to "city noises" in some rooms close to the street. Overall, it is a good value for a premium locat... Read more

The first room we were given was fairly good size for an older, boutique type hotel but the view was directly into another room across the alley. Staff was glad to give us another room when asked but was sure to let us know that it was smaller and street noise could possibly be an issue for us. The room was smaller but very cozy with a very comfortable bed and the street noise did not affect our sleep at all. The location was great and we really enjoyed our stay.

The hotel was at a great location. Everything was at a walking distance. Rooms very small. Out of two elevators one wasn't working at all times. Bed was uncomfortable, pillows were very smelly. First night I slept without pillow. For the next two night I covered the pillows with a bath towel, Shower had no pressure.The w The money you pay is only for the location.

We were here 3 nights in mid May, our room being in the "old" section. We must have got lucky as the room was a reasonable size as was the bathroom. We were also at the front, but didn't find it noisy. One of the lifts wasn't working, which made for a lengthy wait, but walking down was no hardship. We had breakfast included in our package, the servers being friendly, and efficient, coffee and food being delivered promptly.

Great staff. Very friendly and helpful. Super awesome location!!! Everything is within walking distance. You will be in the middle of the action! Only problem we ran into is we requested a queen bed and when we got to our room, the view was awful. We asked for a better view at the front desk, they mentioned all queen-bed rooms do not have a view. We stayed at room 807, don't stay there if u like having a view.

Initially we were given a room which we were not happy with, too noisy. we were offered another room , which was not a problem to the front desk staff Annell and Manny. But on looking at the rooms in the "newer" side of the hotel, shown to us by the delightful and helpful concierge Dale, we decided to upgrade, at a very reasonable price.

We stayed for a night on a family trip after the 14 hour flight from Sydney. The Handlery was recommended by a friend, and did not disappoint. Our room was ready early, the manager personally welcomed us, nice room with a great outlook down Cyril Magnim St. We may not have asked for much, but they delivered in spades - we will definitely stay next time we're in San Francisco.

Here with my family celebrating 25 years of marriage. Hotel is quite old but rooms are modern and clean. The toilet overflowed first and second night, my husband sorted it out. We had paid for breakfast but then informed it was only for the adults not the children ... Might have been beneficial to be told this before our arrival. The cleaning staff are fab this can not be said for the reception staff who were quite disappointing .. I would not recommend.

I loved this hotel. You can't beat the location and considering you are slap bang in the middle of union square the room was really quiet at night. We had a 5th floor room in the 'old' block which had a big bay window. The room was a typical cosy city hotel room not super modern but still lovely. The bed was really comfy and I slept really well.

This was for a short layover. The room was tiny and had a wet carpet! Not enough space for luggage and humans in the room. The bathroom was small but functional. The concierge was friendly. The curtains were so thin, they had no purpose. The breakfast was as big and tasty.

A very well located hotel, rooms are adequate, nothing over the top, bed was comfortable, make sure you ask for a room that doesn't front Geary Street, the noise isn't conducive to sleep. Value for money? Depends where you are from.

The room was quiet, and larger than we expected. The seating area was not squished by the beds. The hotel is older and has been updated over the years. The pool is surrounded by rooms, but in a quiet area. Its large enough to swim short laps. One end is a good depth for water exercise. Turns out all hotels near union square charge for parking ($40-$50/night range). We used the local radio special for the SF Giants, which includes free parking.

The Handlery was everything we needed it to be. We had a poolside balcony deluxe king room. Check out the heated pool! Totally worth a dip. Didn't eat there, as there are too many good eats out and about, but the staff were friendly and efficient. Easy access for hotel guests via the south side of the building was a plus, and so close to the major Powell street hub for all the trolleys, trains and buses!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in January 2016 as the last stop on a 5 week US tour. Our rooms were at the front of the hotel which was an issue because of the noise from the street. The complimentary earplugs on the nightstand were a bit of a giveaway! On the first night an impromptu busking band set up on the corner and this combined with the general traffic noise made it impossible to get to sleep before 11.00pm. Thankfully it rained on nights 2 and 3 so the band was unable to perform!.... Read more
