Hotel Adagio’s 1927 exterior provides a stunning entrance—one that easily lures design-minded travelers. The light-blue Spanish colonial revival building has detailed white moldings that evoke the feel of southern Spain, rather than busy downtown San Francisco. Inside is more eye candy, including a grand marble lobby, warm wood accents, and modern glass light fixtures. The setting, and its convenient location near Union Square, provides a stylish base-camp for travelers looking to swoop in on San Francisco’s urban art scene. Get in on the happy hour action at the hotel’s main hub, the Mortimer Bar and Lounge, a sophisticated, sleek lounge with large windows, craft cocktails, locally brewed beer, and small bites. It’s an optimal place to meet other guests or a few locals stopping by. Try the Lost in Translation cocktail—vodka, yuzu, honey, and basil, made by the bar’s mixologist—while you nibble on a charcuterie board of local artisanal cheeses or gourmet chicken wings. Upstairs, rooms are spacious and contemporary, with maroon accent walls, ceiling fans, and natural light. After a day exploring the city by foot or Uber, Hotel Adagio’s big comfortable beds with Egyptian cotton linens are the perfect place to crash.
In the Area
Even though this hotel is near Union Square—typically known for shopping—it jives more with the art scene that often gets overshadowed in the area. Geary Street, where the hotel is located, boasts more than a dozen artist galleries. The San Francisco Art Exchange, Martin Lawrence Galleries, Weinstein Gallery, and more boast a broad spectrum of art spanning notable locals to international artists like David Hockney. A.C.T., San Francisco’s renowned nonprofit theater company and acting school, has a Geary Theater right across the street and is a great space to see an evening play after dinner. Don’t miss dinner at one of downtown’s urban-chic restaurants, like 398 Brasserie for a California spin on French fare.
How to Get There
This hotel was recommended to me. I travel to SF for work a couple times a month and usually stay at the larger Marriott properties. The boutique experience was stellar and the staff were very friendly, engaging and highly attentive. How refreshing and so delightful. The room was stylish and clean. We also enjoyed the food and exceptional service at the bar. One of the best stays in my many stays in SF. I am staying again and again. This is now my go to place and first choice to stay while I'm in town for business.
we enjoyed out stay, good size room, good condition, just strange that when we checked in the bathroom door was locked so we had to call the front desk to open it! The location is very central but a little sketchy..
I stayed there for a night before I departed SF. The decoration of the hotel is quite stylish, room condition was great and modernised. Toilet condition was okay. And the room had enough lighting. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful.
