                  • The location is great and the hotel has a nice atmosphere. The staff is the best and the bathroom is clean. The complimentary breakfast is amazing.

                    The room was very small.

                  • Comfortable beds and location, one block from Union square, some superb restaurants also within walking distance. Wonderful place to stay, great building great stuff and we booked through TravelZoo for a spectacular price. The staff were very friendly and rooms were cosy.

                    The hotel is truly awful and the light in bathroom would go on. The bar is closed down due to no liquor license and the check in was kinda weird, i filled up on breakfast and never found the need to eat lunch.

                  • Great location to Union Square and near Powell street and the cable car. Totaly a good hotel, for a very reasonable rate and staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds were amazing, free newspapers were also present and the bathtub was large and the rainfall showerhead was very nice. The breakfasts were adequate.

                    I expected the area to be noisy the room was loud and unfortunatelly the window you our bathroom was unable to close tightly.

                  • The location is wonderful and the service provided at the Larkspur Hotel Union Square is exceptional from top to bottom. The lobby is very nice and the staff is amazingly helpful. The water is hot and free breakfast in the morning is great.

                    The room was very small and had no view whatsoever, the bed we had was really uncomfortable.

                  • I loved the location, Union Square is FULL of upscale stores and restaurants nearby nice set of toilettries. This hotel is great, the staff does a wonderful job of making you feel at home and friendly and the lobby is splendid. The rooms are clean, the breakfast itself is pretty good and the wine hour is excellent.

                    The price we paid, bathroom is old and no ice machines avaiLable on the floors.

                  • Great location and price, fantastic Stay. Friendly & helpful staff and comfy bed. Especially the couches in front of the fireplace and good breakfast variety.

                    Big window in the bathroom, no small fridge.

                  • Very good location for Downtown, Union Square and great rates. Staff knowledgeable and helpful, warm room, newspapers and coffee avaiLable in the morning. Loved the free breakfast and fresh Fruit. Not a bad choice overall.

                    The bathroom was tiny.

                  • Great service and location, only a block from Union square. The hotel was clean, friendly and the staff were able to provide some stellar recommendations. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was a simple cold breakfast. The free wine reception in the evenings were fun.

                    Rooms were too small.

                  • Great location and very nice stay. The staff is awesome and just a few blocks from Union square and convenient to walk to restaurants.

                    The room was very very very small and breakfast was very busy.

                  • Liked the seperate wardrobe/ luggage area, great Hotel and staff very professional, friendly and courteous. Comfortable bed and pillows, fantastic breakfast, the choice on offer was good and the muffins were a daily ritual for me.

                    The room rate went up 100.

                  • Location is excellent and a generous welcome pack of toiletries on arrival contributed to our comfort. Staff are friendly and were always ready to help, breakfast is wonderful, just watch out for other pushy guests.

                    The room was dusty effected my allergy'.
