This is our third stay at this the Handlery. After a rocky start during our first stay, Mr. Handlery more than made it up the second time around. This time he really out did himself.

This was our third stay at the Handlery but will probably be our last. The location is fantastic and situated right by Union Square, with great shopping, restaurants, cable cars, buses and cabs on the doorstep. We have previously stayed in the historic part of the hotel (tiny rooms) but paid extra for a premium room this time. It was...

Stayed here for 6 nights May/June on recommendation of others. My tip is to pay the difference and book a premium room. We were given a choice of either a pool view or street view and chose the street view because we like to see the goings on. We had a room with a balcony on the 7th floor overlooking...
