Vibrant, big city energy and high-end shops, theaters, galleries and restaurants make Union Square, San Francisco’s best neighborhood. In the heart of it all, just steps from a cable car stop, the Handlery Union Square Hotel offers, convention, business and leisure travelers the warm, personalized service only an independent family owned hotel can provide. We invite you to enjoy beautifully appointed rooms and suites at one of the most preferred locations in San Francisco.

Located in a splendidly renovated building dating back to 1908, the Handlery merges turn-of-the-century grace and elegance with contemporary decor and sophistication. Our charming Historic Section rooms showcase the original Victorian construction, while more expansive Premier Section rooms offer upgraded perks and amenities along with views of the city or the hotel’s courtyard and heated outdoor pool. Our collection of One-of-a-Kind Suites is highlighted by our Rooftop Garden Suite, a true urban oasis with a living area, wet bar and private terrace.

Handlery Hotels Inc. was founded in 1928 by Harry Handlery who purchased The Handlery Union Square Hotel in 1948 where four generations of Handlery family members have welcomed guests to this inviting gem surrounded by San Francisco’s most iconic landmarks.
