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
We stayed her for a girls trip to San Francisco. My mother, sister and I enjoyed this hotel very much. The rooms were large for a boutique hotel in a downtown location. The staff was more than just friendly, they made sure our stay was excellent. The concierge even walked to a restaurant to make us a reservation when they weren't answering their phone. The service in the bar/restaurant was great and the prices were reasonable for the location. I'd recommend this for anyone that is looking for a great hotel in San Francisco.
Spacious room are hard to find in San Francisco, but most of the room in Autograph are good size, nicely furnished and comfortable. The breakfast can be bought at the reservation time at good discount and are of good quality. Good coffee, tea and water are available for free in the lobby. I already stayed twice this year.
Stayed here last month on vacation. Hotel was in a good central location being just a few blocks from Union Square. Hotel was an older property that had renovated and was very classy. Decent size room for a major city. However, the front desk was the best part of the stay. Each person was always helpful, interactive, and always found a way to provide delightful by their on the small details. I would definitely stay here again.
We did not have a good experience at this hotel. Our hotel gave us a room with two full beds when we booked a reservation for a king bed. I called down to the front desk to ask for a different room and the reception was rude and unhelpful tried to tell me that I requested two full beds. On top of that our room which was 330 for the night overlooked the parking lot of the hotel, the toilet seat was not clean and had brown stains on it that wiped off with paper towel so it was probably feces. The beds are very uncomfortable though the linens are ok. We went out that night for a friends birthday to come back to a front door that had been freshly painted with black paint. Both my husband and I got paint on our nice clothes because there was not a sign on the outside only the inside. Our clothes are ruined as a result. The next morning we also discovered that there was no coffee machine in the room. Overall we would not stay again and as a Marriott hotel member we were very disappointed.
I booked this hotel using points. I was very pleased with the hotel.. Staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to help. We parked two blocks over on Mason at a parking lot where the Gocars drop off was found. Easy to walk to great shopping, cable cars, China town and Union square.
