Best Rooms: There isn't too much in the way of views, as the hotel is surrounded by buildings, but rooms facing Clay St. on floors 4 - 11 are your best bet for views of the city.
Best Rooms: At just 5 stories high, there are no real views offered. That said, Deluxe Queen rooms offer a view of the patio and courtyard area.

Best Rooms: For the best view of the bay, as well as of Coit Tower and the Bay Bridge, be sure to book a Bay View room. Ask for one that has a balcony, so you can really experience the views. These rooms exist even on the highest floor, alongside the uber-expensive suites, so they're quite a steal.
Best Rooms: The hotel isn't known so much for their views, as they're surrounded by buildings. That said, rooms facing the corner of Post and Mason, ending in *02 (e.g. 502, 802), offer the best views of the city streets.
Best Rooms: Most rooms overlook the interior courtyard while a better view of 4th St. is offered from rooms ending in *19 - *24 (e.g. 219, 522, 724, etc.), on all floors.
Best Rooms: Inn At Union Square is encircled by equally tall buildings, blocking any potential views of the city.
