The hip Hotel G, opened in a 1908 building that once housed the famous Fielding Hotel, has all the trappings of a stylish San Fran stay. With a clean, smart design, local artwork and original historic features, this laid-back hotel sports a home-away-from-home vibe in the city’s trendy Union Square neighborhood. Guestrooms are done up in a muted color palette and feel sophisticated thanks to tufted grey headboards, soft Mascioni sheets and hand-dyed rugs, while quirky touches like yellow California-shaped accent pillows and Tivoli radios keep things light and playful. And all the mod cons are here, too (think: smart TVs and iPod docking stations). When hunger strikes, choose from three on-site restaurants: Klyde Café & Wine Bar for American bistro fare, 398 Brasserie for Euro-American dishes and Benjamin Cooper for the oyster bar and seasonal craft cocktails.
In the Area
Hotel G is a few blocks from San Francisco’s Union Square, which makes getting around the city a breeze, and the in-the-know staff can offer great recommendations for the city’s must-sees. We suggest visiting Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf, all just steps away. Don’t miss upscale restaurants like Eno Wine Bar for cheese and charcuterie plates with a glass of red, or Colibri Mexican Bistro for handmade tortillas and guac; it also has an excellent brunch menu.
How to Get There
My college friends and I had a great guest experience at Hotel G for our girls' reunion weekend. The three of us stayed two nights in a king-bed room with one roll-away, a good value for the three of us to share this room with enough space. Nice extras in the room like plush robes, fridge, and Nespresso coffee machine and comfy slippers upon request. The location can't be beat if you want to be at Union Square. Excellent, friendly and efficient service - they know how to provide a level of service that will bring us back for a future visit and tell others. We didn't try the new-ish attached restaurant or the bar, so can't comment on those. My friend liked the in-hotel gym. I definitely recommend, especially if you don't want to stay in a chain hotel, and if you like the boutique hotel experience with a stylish feel.
Hotel G is unlike any hotel we have ever stayed in. The rooms had artsy concrete floors with an area rug, rather than soggy, old wall-to-wall carpeting. The closet was doorless & decked out with designer wallpaper & bathrobes. The color palette overall was clean & refreshing. There was a huge window to let in light & an even bigger standing mirror to reflect the light & expand the room. The shower water pressure was awesome too. We ran into an employee in the elevator, who told us the history of the building (down to the lobby floors!). The location was perfect, right next to Union Square, the cable car line, delicious restaurants & the car rental. We would 100% go back & recommend this place to friends & family!
I requested a room away from street noise with a view of the local street art. The Hotel gave me the perfect room and the front desk staff, as well as the staff in the restaurant and bar, were very friendly. The hotel is also conveniently located in Union Square.
I picked this hotel due to the combination of price and location. Top brand hotels were going for double the cost per night so I gave this a try and I'm glad I did. The hotel is a little older but most hotels in this area are similar in this regard. The facilities are well decorated and very clean. My room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I also found it to be very quiet which is critical for me when I travel. It's a 3 min walk to Union Square and only 6 min walk to the Powell street BART station.
My daughter and I stayed at Hotel G recently to celebrate my birthday. The hotel is centrally located close to union square, shopping and restaurants. We stayed in a room with a king bed and sitting area. Josh was so kind and helpful with every need. My daughter needed to wrap a bday gift for me, so she went to the front desk and asked for paper, tape and scissors, and the staff was so helpful in coming up with adequate wrapping. I was a bit apprehensive in booking an unfamiliar hotel, and I’m happy we took a chance. You won’t be disappointed with this groovy, boutique hotel G.
