Our hotel puts you a block from bustling Union Square—an epicenter of activity and San Francisco’s coveted shopping core. The park, once a hotbed of protests and rallies, boasts a rich and interesting history (and also features the central Dewey Monument). Today, the plaza—nestled between Geary and Post, and Powell and Stockton—proves an ideal place for ogling public art and watching the world whiz by. Settle onto a bench, or get your retail fix at high-end shops found around the perimeter of the square. At the TIX Booth (open seven days a week), score full-price and discount tickets to countless arts and cultural events around town (including same-day theatre offerings).

Cable Car

Cable Cars

No San Francisco visit is complete without riding an iconic cable car, invented here nearly 150 years ago. Two of the three cable car lines originate at Powell and Market streets (4 blocks from our hotel) and continue to Fisherman's Wharf. Purchase fares ($7 one way) before boarding at the ticket booth at Powell and Market, or find multi-day discounts (and buy tickets instantly) at MuniMobile®.



"Wow" all your senses in the largest Chinatown outside of Asia—as well as the oldest one in North America. One of the city's top visitor destinations, this vibrant neighborhood consists of 22 colorful blocks and 41 historic alleyways. Snap a photo under the iconic Dragon Gate (3 blocks from our hotel), feast on dumplings and moon cakes inside countless neighborhood cafes, and peruse the exotic spices and goods of Stockton Street and the alluring antiques and souvenirs of Grant Avenue.

Union Square Park


All year-round, exciting happenings take place in and around Union Square. During summer months, enjoy music in the park on Wednesdays and Sundays, as well as rooftop and silent disco yoga sessions at nearby Westfield San Francisco Centre. In any season, enjoy cooking demos and fashion-focused fetes at Macy’s, or catch live tunes (paired with Southern fare) at nearby Biscuits & Blues.
