The staff was great! They were super friendly and helpful! I liked that my room was quiet and faced the garden. Also, there is a great cafe that is right next door to make it easy for breakfast. Lovely foyer and downstairs bar/lounge. I would highly recommend! Definitely coming back. :)

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Pros: Location is great. Nicely renovated. Excellent staff. Cons: Charged a “resort fee” but amenities are limited to bar and coffee shop. There is nothing resort-like about the hotel. Fee provides a 1-day pass to 24-hour fitness that is about 5 blocks away. Fitness center is very disappointing. We found it to be dirty and fitness equipment limited and old. If you do decide to try the gym, make sure to carry 50 cents on you if you need a locker. If you’re a gym regular, I would recommend you find a hotel with a better-equipped fitness center. Rooms are small but nice. Elevator is slow and very small. Overall, it seemed a bit overpriced compared to other hotels with more amenities. If you like a funky, boutique hotel you might really enjoy Hotel Emblem.

Highly recommend this hotel! The staff were super friendly and helpful. They let us check in early since our room was ready but were willing to hold luggage for those whose rooms were not. Loved the decor of the entire hotel and it smelled so good! Our room was a perfect size and we were able to walk to several main tourist areas such as Union Square and Chinatown.

The entire vibe, the aroma at the entrance and the overall esthetic of the hotel was amazing. The 'unorthodox amenity list' was a fun touch to a hotel that nailed the classy vintage feel. We were regretful that we didn't stay longer than one night but we will be sure to the next time we're in San Francisco!

My stay in San Francisco was part of a larger trip which also included New York and LA. Honestly the hotel was perfect for what I was looking for, very easy going. No uncomfortable pestering (although I’d recommend using the do not disturb sign to avoid being woken by housekeeping). The location was excellent and walking everywhere was super simple. One lovely lady at reception was amazing with directions and recommendations, one of which was cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge (a must do!). The room was clean and modern, great bathroom. No complaints and would definitely stay again!
