Just a block from Union Square, Mystic Hotel by Charlie Palmer is a boutique hotel at the heart of three buzzing SF ‘hoods. The petite lobby shows off a modern style that’s echoed across the property, with bright whites from painted floorboards to soaring ceilings, daybed-style velvet sofas and oversize monochrome artworks. Upstairs, the 82 rooms blend original details like exposed brick and gorgeous bay windows with a clean, minimal style in stark white and autumnal shades. All have flatscreen TVs, ceiling fans (but no AC) and honor bars stocked with locally made treats. The simple tile bathrooms have standalone showers and eco toiletries. On the dining front, Charlie Palmer’s Burritt Tavern restaurant serves a modern American menu featuring local, seasonal ingredients, including Bay Area seafood and ranch-raised meats. The attached Burritt Room bar does double duty as a craft cocktail hangout by night and breakfast lounge each morning. Fuel up on the free spread of fresh baked goods, scrambled eggs, fruit and Starbucks coffee before heading out to explore the best of the Nob Hill, Chinatown and beyond.
In the Area
Busy Union Square is your destination for serious shopping and alfresco entertainment. Hit the racks of Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and more, or check out the square’s ever-changing events schedule from improv comedy performances and live tango sessions to trivia nights and fashion shows. Foodies should make for the farmer’s market at Ferry Plaza every Saturday from 8 a.m., or the Off the Grid Food Truck gathering each Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. at Fort Mason. For some classic SF sightseeing, hop the historic cable car over to Fisherman’s Wharf or hike up Grant Avenue for a cocktail with a view at 15 Romolo.
How to Get There
We were very disappointed that the little bar/music club was not open and were not notified about it before hand.
Other than that it is in an easy access part of the city to walk to around the city. The hotel could use some updates.
Driving into San Fran wasn't easy. Google maps went crazy and getting to the hotel was hard work, then we walked in & everything changed.
We went from tired and stressed to having the gentleman at the front desk just relax us. Showed us all the places to see in San Fran. Even googled to help us find a tour we wanted.
Julian thank you. You turned a tough moment into a great night. Hotels are similar, it's the staff that make them stand out.
Tidy hotel, great location and Amazing Staff! Stay for the staff and I hope you get to meet Julian
I had an awesome stay at the Mystic Hotel. The front desk staff was so nice. Especially, Julian who checked us in and was amazing and so helpful. We had a problem with our room and he was fast and efficient and solved it right away.
