This is not on Union Square, but unless you want the high end shops on your doorstep then this is a great location. Easy to walk to Union Square, the cable car starts by the hotel and busses stop outside. Walking to/from Fisherman's Wharf takes...More

With the scarcity of taxi's in this town, I can't agree more when it comes to downloading the transportation apps such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar. If you prefer the familiarity of regular cabs, then Flywheel is the one they use.

You mentioned the cable down to the ferry building. That's one of my favorite stops. Amazing artisanal shops and fantastic restaurants. Then the ferry can carry you away to Sausalito for a few hours. Can't beat that!

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
