We spent 3 nights here and at corporate rates this was fantastic value for money. Very very close to cable car and street trolley lines, eateries, shopping areas, Chinatown and Cbd. Location location location ! Only downside - smallish room, which was reflective of the price we paid I guess. Recommend.

Great location, fabulous service. This is now my favorite place to stay in San Fran. No more Westin prices. We stayed in a King bed room on the 5th floor of the "club" building, which is the newer of the two buildings making up The Handlery.

This hotel has that old world charm and feel, but clean, cosy and in a great location. We stayed her with four teenagers, occupying three rooms. All had king size beds which were very comfortable. Plenty of restaurants nearby, but only ten minutes to Pier 39. Another great place to stay!

The Handlery is an older hotel, but conveniently located very close to Union Square. The room was comfy and clean and the welcoming was great. Exceptional service. The restaurant connected to the hotel was very good. Hearty portions and great taste.

I stayed here for 9 days. The room was beyond functional and clean. The staff are great and accommodating. Great location. I have no experience to compare value, but seems reasonable for SFO especially for the central location.
