Our take on The Donatello Hotel

Staying in a Union Square hotel can sometimes feel like cramming eight people into a tiny hatchback on a hot summer day, yet The Donatello provides the opposite experience. If room size tops your priority list, then you'll enjoy some of the largest rooms in all of San Francisco (studios around 425 square feet), without emptying your wallet. Rooms here also feature amenities like flatscreen TVs, microwaves, and turndown service. Friendly staff members ensure that both leisure and business travelers are well catered to. If you don't want to venture out too far for some grub, enjoy the Zingari Ristorante, which serves up Italian fare and is located right next to the hotel -- the nightly live jazz and happy hour will surely set your mood right.

Insider Tips on the Best Rooms at this Hotel

Quiet Rooms

To get away from street noise, request a room on or above floor 9. On the weekends, the even-numbered rooms (e.g. 604, 708, 1010) are preferred because they face away from the nightclub located across the street.

Rooms with a View

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.

Oversized Rooms

Corner rooms are a bit smaller than standard rooms within the same category.

Best Rooms

At just 5 stories high, the hotel is surrounded by taller buildings, so there's not much of a view. That said, Deluxe Queen rooms located at the back of the hotel face down hill, offering a better view of the city. Deluxe King rooms face Bush St.
