A lovely Deco-inspired hotel in an unbeatable location, close to some of the city's best shopping, dining and nightlife

What’s the best way to stay in San Francisco, where cutting-edge startups share the streets with century-old painted-lady Victorians? At a hotel that strikes the same balance between old and new, naturally. Never mind the fact that Union Square Hotel is also, as the name suggests, just steps from the busiest plaza in town (and one of the largest department-store hubs in the country). This property is a winner for its fabulous style alone, which echoes the city’s in how it balances original Deco details – the building was constructed in 1915 – with sleek interior design by local firm EQ3.

OK, maybe the address is worth a few points, too. After all, you didn’t come here just to hang around and sleep – so don’t. Walk out the front door to hit up Macy’s, and pick up show tickets from the TIX box office. Line up for the cable car, which will take you to Fisherman’s Wharf for prime sea-lion spotting and sourdough tasting, or hop on the BART to another neighborhood, like the Mission or even downtown Berkeley. Of course, with all there is to see and do, you may find yourself in need of some guidance and assistance. In that case, hit up the hotel’s staff, which has dozens of dining, shopping and sightseeing recommendations.
