Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel, housed in a landmark building in the heart of Union Square, is quintessential San Francisco: exciting, romantic, timelessly elegant and unique. The ornately decorated lobby, old-world hospitality, and Tom Sweeney, the hotel's infamous Beefeater doorman...
My husband stays here often as his corporate office is in SF and Kimpton is usually a preferred hotel of his. I’m usually skeptical as I travel with our two young children.
Sir Francis Drake was amazing! They were amazing with our children! Doris and...More
We live an hour away so I knew exactly where the hotel is located, at Union Square. We arrived on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and walked about 5minutes to the hotel. It was very easy. Parking is strictly valet and about $50 night, so...More

I have struggled to write a fair review of this hotel in the center of San Francisco. There are many plusses to the property.... it is ideally located.... The lobby has an old world charm.... The Starlight bar has a killer view.... But, there were...More
My husband and I stayed at the Sir Francis Drake hotel in early July, Saturday through Tuesday. Check in was quick and easy. The decor and atmosphere is very unique and fun. Definitely not your standard hotel carpet and furnishings. It was fun to splurge...More
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city.
