Art Deco landmark with romantic cable car views, just steps from the best shopping in San Francisco
Buzzy and in the middle of everything, the Hotel Union Square has recently renovated rooms that embrace a modern vibe, with striped carpets and white-painted exposed brick. But you probably won’t be spending much time in them, since the area is so jam-packed with things to do, from shopping to museums to watching the famous cable car turnaround, a block from the hotel. There are a couple of specialty suites—one decked out in SF Giants colors and merchandise, another an homage to Dashiell Hammett and, best of all, a Cable Car Suite that has a private deck and skyline views—but the real allure here is the proximity to the waterfront and shops during the day, and the glitzy nightlife after dark.
