This hotel was such a wonderful surprise. It is centrally located and a quick, two block walk to Union Square. The lobby and beautiful and the staff is incredibly friendly. Our room was small but welcoming. I highly recommend this hotel.
The staff was exceptionally friendly, the location was perfect right on top of nob hill, and the room was extremely comfortable and clean. I have not had a nights sleep that good in a long time. The views from the room were beautiful too.
There's no better place on Union Square than the St. Francis. If you like the older classic SFO hotel style, then opt for a room in the front original building. It's VERY quiet due to solid old-time construction. The large square footage of our view room was nice. The floor space lends itself to more furniture in the room, which was a bit sparse, but otherwise very nice. We'll go back for sure.
