Our first stop in our visit to the U.S. on our honeymoon & very impressed with the treatment & service considering we were only there 1 night. Even the owner went out if his way to greet us & left us champagne & treats!

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while on a road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway. The hotel was clean, the staff was pleasant and accommodating, and the location was excellent - near the cable car line, restaurants, stores, etc. The bellmen were particularly helpful during our stay. "Nemo" was very pleasant and quite helpful...

Our recent stay at the Handlery Hotel was superb. The hotel could not do enough for us once we arrived. As it was a honeymoon trip we were offered a lovely bottle of sparkling wine and some snacks!

Right off of Union Square and two doors down from Lefty O'Doul's. Very quiet property and very clean. Found this place on a lark and am glad we did. Staff very accommodating. While Union Square has lost some of its charm, there are still wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The bed was comfortable and we couldn't ask for more. Small...

I'm making allowances for the fact it's a city hotel which to me usually means smaller rooms and less value for money, but can't help feeling it'd would have been better to have gone elsewhere, even if it cost a bit more.
