Travellers' Choice
Check in and leave the status quo behind. Hotel Emblem in downtown San Francisco, where Nob Hill meets Union Square and the Theater District, is a haven for those that think as boldly as they live. Inspiring conversation in all the right ways, with plenty of modern provocations, Hotel Emblem will feature a cocktail-focused restaurant and 96 vibrant guestrooms. Every corner is designed to spark creativity, from the bar inspired by the Beat Generation, to the book-filled Writer’s Alcove in the lobby, to the eclectic guestrooms, where patterns play and an expressive vibe thrives. This hotel is a muse – and you will be, too. Lend your voice at the weekly poetry slam. Get lost in the flow of nightly live jazz. Tap out a few thoughts on the lobby typewriter.

Parking is offered at a garage that’s full. Ended up having to circle around miles away and Ubering back and forth. Bar is closed but they offer in room drink services to replace it. The drink service just has cheap premise cocktails in a can. What a joke. On top of that there’s a mandatory “amenities” fee that is separated from costs during booking to trick people into thinking that this place has a better value. Terrible place. Will not be coming back.

Hotel's Favourite
This boutique hotel is located right in Union Square next to restaurants and shopping. You can walk to most anything. It is very cool, the decor is modern and theme is fun. The rooms are great with a very nice bed to great technology. Shower was amazing, big and shower pressure perfect! Great art, fun style, great bathroom products...I loved it!

Our family of 4 including 2 teens stayed 3 nights at Hotel Emblem following our time in Yosemite and the Pacific Coast. This hotel had an artsy, unique feel, was clean with comfortable beds and there was a pleasantly soothing aroma in the lobby and halls! We walked all over the city from this hotel.

We were greeted by Orion upon check in, and as it a small hotel with no bell staff, he was kind enough to help with luggage. The whole staff was excellent and seemed very hospitable, offering suggestions on drinks, dining, etc. The property has a cool, hip vibe that we really enjoyed. Definitely not cookie cutter! We got a nice large room with a comfortable bed (the pillows were even fantastic). The hotel is situated in Union Square district with many upscale shops and restaurants. There is also a walgreens drug store close by to purchase any forgotten items/snacks/etc. I always enjoy staying in a “boutique” hotel over the major chains, mainly because they are more personal and accommodating. Hotel Emblem did not disappoint.

As I stated in my earlier comments, i have never a finer experience anywhere in the world. Your staff, led by Milton, anticipated all of our needs and went out of their way to make my son's 21st birthday special and memorable. Milton provided iced champagne before we even opened our door and then literally shipped our memories home. I cannot express in words what that meant to me. You would have to look into my heart to feel it, and apparently you guys are very good at that.
