If you've been around and know the hotel scene in SF, this is a good choice. Rooms are clean and modern. It offers a good breakfast and you can walk everywhere. 5 minutes to Union Square, Chinatown, etc...

This hotel is small but cute and in a really good location. It is older so they have one of those small elevators that you have to manually close the door on but it's efficient enough to get you where you need to go. The free breakfast is also ok. Here's where I have issues. First, if you're an east...

I was recommended this hotel by colleagues. I would say the biggest plus (except for great central location) is the staff. Everyone is extremely friedly and helpful in every way. Rooms are clean and well suited for people not expecting to spend much time in the actual room. Bed, desk and bathroom, that's it. Taking a shower is a bit...

Our room was on the 6th floor and was very small but clean and nicely decorated. Walls were a little thin and we could hear sounds from outside and other rooms at times but nothing too crazy. Our rate for the room was very cheap so it was actually a pleasant surprise to see the hotel was decorated nicely, the...

I was coming in for a conference and all the major hotels were sold out or crazy expensive and I found this place. Wow what an excellent location with so much charm. The restaurant was amazing with excellent food. The room was clean, had character and was good size. I would definitely stay here again. Everything was in walking distance...

My wife and I recently stayed at the Mystic Hotel and had a wonderful visit. Our suite was very comfortable, and was in great style. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they truly made us feel like they wanted our visit to be a great experience. The Mystic served a complementary breakfast in the morning that was very enjoyable....

The hotel is smart, efficient with great rooms and an arty decor and vibe. Breakfasts were variable with many times dishes empty and not refilled. However most times it was ok. We were disappointed that each morning we were given a form to fill in and including a tip box to add on to the bill. We feel this is...

I loved everything about this place. It has small rooms of a bygone era that have bee transferred into beautiful, hip, immensely comfortable oasis. The decor is very pleasing. It has all the amenities that you could want or need. The staff went out of its way to be helpful. The onsite restaurant is very good. Breakfast is tasty and...

If you are unfamiliar with San Francisco and don't want to pay the prices for the Fairmont, St. Francis, or Mark Hopkins and want to be near Chinatown, Union Square, and on the trolley lines to N.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mystic Hotel Union Square San Francisco by Charlie Palmer is a smart, sleek retreat situated in the heart of the city's busiest neighborhoods. Conveniently located just one block from the iconic cable car line in the middle of three key destinations – Union Square, Chinatown and the Financial District — Mystic Hotel offers a convenient, comfortable and unique modern boutique hotel experience in a historic location. With a contemporary look and feel, our accommodations are designed to reflect the changing need of today's traveler. Enjoy high-touch service and an ideal Union Square location, perfect for travelers looking to experience all the adventures of San Francisco. Like a private club, enjoy handcrafted cocktails in the Burritt Room, the intimate film noir-inspired bar named for Burritt Alley, where detective Sam Spade's partner Miles Archer was gunned down in The Maltese Falcon. Then, step into the speakeasy vibe of renowned Chef Charlie Palmer’s adjoining Burritt Tavern, where walled-in and curtained booths create dark corners for private conversations and Executive Chef Luke Knox turns out classic food like steaks and chops done right. Knox also takes advantage of Bay area's tremendous green markets as well as the extraordinary offerings from local food artisans in menus built around prized regional specialties from Dungeness crab to West Coast oysters. That's what we like about San Francisco: it's up to the minute and still in the moment. ... more   less
