Good location

V8010RFdavidt on Jul 03, 2022

The hotel is in a good location close to the tram and shopping center. The room was nice if a little tired. Due to being in the centre it was a little noisy at times but to be expected for location. Staff were friendly enough.

A pleasant hotel in a fantastic location

Alfie193 (West Virginia) on Jul 01, 2022

We took the BART from the airport to Powell Street station, and the Handlery was conveniently a few blocks from the station. It was a nice walk in a good neighborhood. We arrived early and were able to check into our room, which was a relief and a warm welcome! Our room was at the end of a long corridor near the steps, and though it didn't have a view, we appreciated the quiet of the room. We had a room in the older section of the hotel, which isn't something that is spelled out when booking rooms. We had two beds and a spacious room, though the bath was a bit outdated but it had great water pressure, a roomy shower and a clothesline. We slept well and had blackout curtains that helped. Towards the end of our 4-night stay, the people next door to us were very noisy and smoking marijuana and slamming doors. It was disappointing that the hotel didn't have a working restaurant/cafe. That made it more difficult to get breakfast in the morning when we had many scheduled/ticketed activities. All in all, we had a nice stay at the Handlery and loved the convenient location. We could walk to Union Square, the Powell St. BART station, the cable car station and to stores. It was a good start to traveling to San Francisco!

Fab location and great room

JoJo00007 (Taunton, United Kingdom) on Jun 30, 2022

This is a fab hotel, in a great location. We loved our room, which faced the pool. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. It’s a hotel with charm. Spacious rooms with good facilities. We parked in Mason O’Farrell car park which is really close by for $38 dollars a day. Also a great location if you are picking up a hire car as most of the big companies have a base in the Mason O’Farrell car park building.

Great location, clean rooms and friendly staff.

My first time in San Francisco. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were so attentive, accommodating and friendly. Possibly the greatest asset a hotel has to offer. Rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. Pool was absolutely lovely (and heated). A wonderful location beside union square, the cable cars and the bus routes. They also held our luggage on the day of checkout in a secure location to let us explore San Francisco more! Thanks again for a memorable stay.

Excellant stay and will return

suetaylor4 (Manchester, United Kingdom) on Jun 22, 2022

Our first time at the Handlery (8 nights) and we were very pleased with our choice. We booked a 2 dbles room in the Premier building (newer part), The room overlooked Geary St and was on the 7th floor. It was large, very clean and airy and had little touches such as a 'dressing' area (no scrapping over the bathroom mirror!) and a retractable clothes line over the bath. The shower was quite powerful and efficient for an old building. We heard very little noise from the street or the adjacent rooms / hallway and used the garage entrance on Geary St to come and go, so avoided the walk back through to the main reception building on O'Farrell. The staff were polite and helpful - from front desk to the housekeeping staff. Our request for a late check-out was granted, so that we could sightsee in the morning then freshen up prior to our late afternoon flight back to the UK. We would happily recommend The Handlery to friends and family.
