3 star hotel
Area: Lower Knob Hill
0.54 mi from TransAmerica Pyramid
Best Rooms: The hotel is only 8 floors high, so the views from the rooms are usually of the surrounding buildings. That said, for a partial view of the city, ask for a room on the west side of the hotel facing Mason St.
Best Rooms: Inn At Union Square is encircled by equally tall buildings, blocking any potential views of the city.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing Mason Street on floors 6 and higher in the Main Building have the best partial city views and are available mainly as Historic Kings. Many Historic Kings also face Geary Street and have good street views. Rooms in the club building that face the pool are the other best options for views; these rooms are mainly available as Premier Kings.
