The Herbert Hotel at Union Square, San Francisco

The Herbert Hotel


Open 24 Hours

161 Powell Street | Directions

A 4-minute walk from the Union Square shopping and theater district, this low-key hotel is housed in a quirky building that began as a bachelors' club in 1909. The hotel lies along the Powell Street cable-car route that travels to attractions such as Fisherman's Wharf. Contemporary rooms, some with private baths, have a bright, minimalist decor with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Suites add exposed-brick walls and pull-out sofas; connecting rooms are available for groups or families. Japanese and Irish eateries are found a short walk from the hotel's lobby, which is decorated with photos and other memorabilia from the property's early days.
