Located in the heart of the city, Hilton San Francisco Union Square is a good option for the business or leisure traveler. Having undergone a $25 million renovation of its tower one hotel rooms, more upgrades are in store for this historic San Francisco hotel.
The Skyline-Bay view rooms are worth a little extra splurge if you like a room with a view. These rooms were recently renovated and include a 37-inch HDTV and complimentary internet access. Additionally, rates include access to a continental breakfast at Starbucks or for an additional fee, guests may upgrade to the hotel restaurant buffet. Of course, there are accessible rooms for guests with special needs and the property offers pet-friendly rooms for those traveling with dogs under 75 pounds.
Fitness buffs will appreciate the 2,800 square foot health club with quality exercise equipment and those traveling with children will be happy with the outdoor pool located on the 16th floor of the hotel.
All rooms are non-smoking least you forget that you are in California. There are designated smoking areas outside of the hotel. If you are traveling by car, the hotel offers self parking and valet service for an additional fee. Hilton SF Union Square is conveniently located near public transportation with shuttle service and BART available to Oakland and San Francisco International Airports.
Visitors from China will want to take advantage of the Huanying program, welcoming guests with tea kettles and slippers in room, as well as a Chinese breakfast buffet.
