Hotel's Favourite
This boutique hotel is located right in Union Square next to restaurants and shopping. You can walk to most anything. It is very cool, the decor is modern and theme is fun. The rooms are great with a very nice bed to great technology. Shower was amazing, big and shower pressure perfect! Great art, fun style, great bathroom products...I loved it!

What a phenomenal experience at this hotel! The manager and staff were extremely attentive making me feel like royalty. They upgraded my hotel room for my birthday and help arrange for my boyfriend to send flowers. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious with an outpouring of sunlight. The book placed in my room were ideal to my taste in literature. Loved the white noise machine and essential oil diffuser. The robe and slippers were the icing on the cake. I opted to stay in for the night and don’t regret it at all. The hotel Staff remembering my name and being very friendly really made this stay more personable.

We were super excited to stay at this beautiful hotel to celebrate our anniversary! Check-in was fast and friendly. But they did not know anything about the meter parking situation across the street. Turns out, you could park for free after 7 pm on Saturday, all the way until Monday. So that’s exactly what we did to save the $55 valet parking. The front desk was about to charge us the amenity fee until I reminded her that the fee was waived for Expedia VIP. Good thing it was waived because we were hardly in the room…only came back to sleep for 6 hours as we were in town to visit friends. Furthermore, they ran out of the bath bombs and the coloring book (the only two things we wanted), so make sure you request for those as you check in. Now comes the room, we asked for a room on a higher floor but the front desk told us the view is better for the one that was assigned (3rd floor), but we were pretty disappointed when we got in because there was absolutely no views at all. The room also felt really dark. But it was beautiful decorated and the bathroom was very comfortable. We also were surprised that we didn’t get any special treat from the hotel for our anniversary celebration. The Chancellor hotel that we stayed at 2 days later gave us a bottle of champagne! Overall, it was a beautiful hotel and a convenient location to stay at. But for the price, you can probably get a better value elsewhere.

We loved our experience at the Hotel Emblem. Located walking distance to shopping area (mall and outdoor retailers), Chinatown and a 30m walk to Fisherman's Wharf or Giant Stadium. Our room was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. Bed was exceptionally comfortable. The hotel manager (McClinton) and his staff were beyond helpful and courtesy. We had never been to San Fran and McClinton and his team helped us get oriented and provide great recommendations for sites to visit.
