Welcome to Handlery Union Square Hotel

Discover All That San Francisco Has to Offer

A warm, inviting, family-style ambiance greets you upon stepping into our beautifully renovated building originally built in 1908. With every detail of our design and décor, timeless grace and elegance are seamlessly merged with modern sophistication. Our charming Historic Section rooms showcase the original Victorian architecture, while more expansive Premier Section rooms offer upgraded perks and amenities along with views of the city or the hotel’s courtyard and heated outdoor pool. Our collection of one-of-a-kind suites is highlighted by our Rooftop Garden Suite, a true urban oasis with a living area, wet bar and private terrace.

Our central Union Square location brings the best of San Francisco directly to your doorstep, while our 
concierge and front desk staff draw upon their deep local knowledge when recommending everything from famous attractions to hidden gems. Our heated outdoor pool awaits for a relaxing dip after a day of travel, meetings or exploring. Located just off the lobby, the Daily Grill Restaurant bustles with casual energy from early morning through lunch and cocktail hour to late in the evening, at all times serving fresh, made-from-scratch California comfort food. There’s no better place for unwinding with colleagues, catching up with friends or making new connections. 

See San Francisco the way it was meant to be experienced at the Handlery Union Square Hotel.

Handlery San Francisco Union Square

“To have every guest not question why they stayed here, but to question why they didn’t stay here before...”

These were the words of Handlery Hotels, Inc., founder Harry Handlery when he started his company in 1928. He remained committed to that vision when he purchased the Handlery Union Square Hotel in 1948. Since then, four generations of Handlery family members have welcomed guests to this inviting gem near downtown San Francisco’s most iconic landmarks.
