Just returned from a 5 night stay. The hotel was fab. Really homely, staff couldn't do enough. Would definitely recommend and will come here again. Great breakfasts on The Grill that set us up for the day and lovely friendly wait staff. Convenient location right next to Union Square so really handy for bus tours, cable car stops and shopping....

I used the Handlery based on the ability to book a small room for myself for one night. The room was clean and comfortable, and booked on a prepaid rate. It was just right for what I needed. Staff were really helpful and I got some good advice regarding areas to walk around and avoiding the hills. I would certainly...

Spent 5 nights in SF. Booked hotel based on location, and it was great. Union square, cable car, access to the bart to airport, restaurants, busses to touristy locations, car rental around the block. Hotel is old, but it has it's charm, and the outdoor heated pool is beautiful. Room sizes are very different, and we had a stale odor...

We stayed in Handlery last week and the first thing we noticed was the stinky odor along the hallway which permeated up to the room. Although front desk and concierge staff were all friendly/helpful and the rooms big, what I remember most about this hotel is that smell. To think that this is one of the more expensive hotels in...

Absolutely loved this hotel, the architecture was amazing and the location even more amazing. The staff were spot on, extremely polite and helpful. Perfect place to set off from for a day of exploring wonderful San Francisco, close to the cable cars and plenty of places close by for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Would definitely stay here again when we...

Checking in was a breeze and staff were friendly. Parking was a little difficult to find as it's on the opposite side of the hotel (next block over). Would def stay...

Great hotel. Located very close to BART and Union Square. Lots of shopping close by. The hotel is in a Historic Building which I really liked. The room was nice, clean and surprisingly quiet. I stayed in a queen bed room. The front desk employee was friendly and helpful upon check in. The bellman was very friendly as well. Price...

You'd pay a lot more to stay in the hotel across the road.. The Handlery is located in Union Square right in the centre of the city surrounded by great shopping...10 out of 10 for location ... the Hotel is unique with large rooms and old style service... we loved it. Ask for a Premier room that faces the rear...

Great staff at this hotel. The hotel has a lovely historic San Fransisco feel to it. I stayed in a 2 double bed room and it was clean and spacious. Unfortunately I had no view from my 2nd floor room. I found the room to be quite cold and had to turn the heater up quite high to get the...

This hotel was recommended by our travel agent as it is a family run business known for great customer service. We arrived to find a bottle of chilled prosseco in the room ... The only one of the four hotels we stayed in during this birthday trip to do this. We got a lovely quiet & spacious king room in...
