San Francisco: Handlery, Union Square

As a regular visitor to San Francisco over the years, I have discovered a hotel that ticks all the boxes for location, friendly service and is moderately priced.  The Handlery Hotel is literally one minutes walk to Union Square, Macy’s, where your hotel key card entitles you to 10% off all purchases including those on sale, and all the great shops, department stores and theatres.  Off the foyer there is an excellent restaurant, The Daily Grill (not run by the hotel) open all day.   Its cosy bar makes one want to linger.  The restaurant also provides room service for the Handlery.  Situated in the flat part of the city, walking is a breeze.

We enjoyed our small suite, “Grandma’s Room”, with it’s own private terrace, kitchen and lounge area.  Having stayed at this hotel several times over the past twenty years, we are always made most welcome by their friendly staff.  This is a family friendly hotel and is very popular with Australians who like good value and convenient location.  There is a pool area, parking and a traditional barber shop.  My wife and I always feel very much at home in this hotel.  Another plus is its proximity to many different types of restaurants literally minutes walk away.  John Pond.
