Overview

Sophisticated design, a hipster cocktail scene, and plush cozy rooms provide a mod haven in downtown San Francisco

The Lowdown

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.
