    The location of the hotel is great. We stayed in a king room in the historic section. The room is so small. The toilet paper rolls keep falling out of the holder. The shower has very little water pressure. The air conditioner didn't work either

    Room was quiet, but a little small

    We took a room here mostly for convenience. We had a meeting to attend at the convention center, and it was an easy walk. The room was clean, although a little small- we had two double beds with just two adults, and frequently felt a little cramped; we were thankful we didn't have the kids with us. The gym had enough space, but it was too warm in there- no air flow. All in all, the staff was polite and accommodating and the room served its function, allowing us to sleep soundly and stay conveniently near where we needed to be.

    September visit

    Solid value for hte dollar. Great location. Super friendly staff. The Grill Room, which is their restaurant has good food and accessable hours. It is more attractive than the big box hotels.Cahrmaing to be able to open a window an drealize you are looking a usable fireescape made of wrought iron.Close to jsut about everythign downtown.

    After an 11 hour flight it was wonderful to arrive at the Handlery, right in the heart of San Francisco and have a swim and a meal before collapsing into the wonderfully comfortable bed. the position could not be more perfect for visiting all the sights, the breakfasts were varied and all of our party of 9 were able to find something from waffles to full american with healthy option in between. We had 3 nights and would have loved to stay longer.

    My wife and I stayed here on our first ever trip to San Francisco and it’s very central , convenient location in Union Square is its biggest selling point . It’s easy to walk around major shopping area and or get public transport to any of major sites . Room was ok clean but not large and without any kind of view . Hotel does have a pool which I used each morning . It’s not big and they don’t provide bath towels or Robe to use ( which I think was a bit of a failing ) but it’s still a good facility to have . Bar was ok on one occasion we used it but it closed early at 10 pm on week days . We didn’t have breakfast there as it was pretty expensive and not a large area . Nonetheless My only real complaint was with exception of bartender the staff weren’t friendly or helpful not even the concierge who told us it was impossible to visit Alcatraz as it was completely booked for all ferry trips up only for us to find a source of legitimate tickets on line . So would say this hotel was ok as good place to be based but don’t except much customer care or TLC. Would recommend albeit half heartedly .
