An intimate hotel in the City by the Bay, steps from Union Square, offering an evening wine-and-charcuterie reception

Stay in one of TripAdvisor’s top-ranked hotels in all of San Francisco at the Inn at Union Square. This boutique base is found, as the name suggests, just around the corner from the busiest plaza in the city and one of the largest department-store hubs in the country. This hotel is a winner on the basis of its intimate vibe, friendly staff, comfortable accommodations and top-notch hospitality alone. Not to mention the daily fresh-baked cookies and milk and nightly wine and cheese.

Naturally, the location is worth a few points too. Walk out the front door to shop at Macy’s or Bloomingdale's, and pick up show tickets from the TIX box office. Line up for the cable car, which will take you to Fisherman’s Wharf for prime sea-lion spotting and sourdough tasting. Hop on the BART to another neighborhood, like the Mission or even downtown Berkeley. With all there is to see and do, you may find yourself in need of some guidance and assistance. In that case, the inn’s 24-hour concierge is a good place to start.
