About this Hotel

Price From $129

'Hood Union Square, across the street from Macy's, an anchor store of the shopping district. Walk two blocks to Market Street to hop on the BART (subway) or the city's historic cable cars.

The Gist The 182-room Villa Florence has a front entrance bracketed by Italianate columns and a buzzing lobby with a surprisingly affordable Italian wine bar. Guest rooms are small, but they're stylish and well-maintained: Online reviewers rave about the comfortable beds and the natural bath products by French company L'Occitane. The hotel staff is friendly and always helpful, and the central location is a strong selling point. Union Square is a bustling tourist hub, so if you're averse to noise, request an interior room.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, Discover, MC, Visa.
