3 star hotel
Area: Lower Knob Hill

Best Rooms: Inn At Union Square is encircled by equally tall buildings, blocking any potential views of the city.
Best Rooms: The hotel can't offer any city views because it's surrounded by taller buildings, but rooms overlooking Post St. on floors 5 and above have nicer views.
