        • Older travelers

          The location - in the heart of the shopping district!

          The billing - I thought I had paid for the hotel before I left Australia - but had to pay after the stay. I would rather have all paid beforehand.

          We liked how close it was to everything. San Francisco as a city is great to walk around and easy to find your way around. The hotel staff were friendly, the room was very nice although the bathroom could use a little sprucing up but your not in there that often so it doesn't matter a great deal. We overlooked the pool so it was better than seeing nothing. Overall it was a really good stay.

          Nothing really about the hotel just theres a lot of homeless people around the streets always asking for money and it got a little scary sometimes, and made me feel unsafe.

          I liked the location, and I liked how big the new rooms were. It has a balcony and a heated pool which was something different in SF.

          Everything was really good, I don't have any complaints.

          Location was excellent, very comfortable and clean room although ac did not work well so the temperature was the only uncomfortable thing while we were there.

        • Group of friends

          The Handlery Hotel was close to everything and great shopping was only steps from the front door. Attention to detail was noticed and the bed was comfortably made and amenities were appreciated.

          It is unfortunate that the homeless situation in San Francisco is terrible and evening panhandlers made walking around at night uncomfortable.

          • Average rating
        • Couple

          It was a great location and the concierge and front desk staff were incredibly helpful. We also had an issue with our passports and had to have the hotel send them to us at our next destination during our trip. They did a wonderful job; they were very friendly and helpful and tried to save us money too.

          The hotel was very expensive considering the room size and layout and what little was included in the cost. The valet parking was also incredibly expensive and the valet staff were unhelpful and what came across as a little rude (although it did seem like they were understaffed). We found much cheaper parking across the road for our final night.

          The location of this hotel is great being so close to shopping, cable car route, etc. the Concierge and front desk were nice and helpful and my room was huge and very clean. I stayed in room 665, in the back with a balcony and pool view. The room was updated, the bed was so comfortable and it was relatively quiet except for the afternoon when people were down in the pool. Not a problem for me though. I would definitely stay here again!

          Good location; good staff; well run, with a good diner adjoining, and bars nearby; everything a traveller needs for a few relaxing days around Union Square. Close to all attractions and movie houses, restaurants.
