Our shower drain was clogged and my credit card was charged 4 times. We were shooed away and I have to wait for my credit card bill to verify that all the extra charges were actually reversed. The virtual concierge does not work; we never got a response. After complaining, we were told that management would follow up with us... More

Booked a king room but was surprised by a free upgrade to a king suite on a weds night. The room was lovely with a nice comfy bed, sitting area, desk and bathroom with Bigelow Amenities. The room had a very modern cooling and heating system that was remote operated. You were able to purchase snacks, sodas, drinks from the... More

We decided to end our Thansgiving holiday with a side trip to San Francisco. It was Black Friday and the city was packed with people. The hotel is around the corner from Union Square and within walking distance to all the stores and China Town. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant. It was a great way to start the... More

We've stayed at Villa Florence many times over the years and we will return again. This hotel is in a great location, they don't tell you but it is okay to drive on and park (temporarily) on Powell Street in front of the hotel, our GPS thought otherwise. And, take advantage of their valet parking.

We spent the Thanksgiving weekend in the City at the Villa Florence. It has a great location just a block off Union Square. Because it was a slow weekend, we were upgraded to a suite. The room was great...a bit smaller than a newer hotel but well appointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Kuletos restaurant occupies the same... More

Good location, very nice and pleasant staff, however room was very noisy and wifi was almost non existent in the room. Quite expensive hotel, and we have been charged twice for our stay in our bank account and still waiting for an answer for the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Florence offers 189 guest rooms, where the Italian-inspired theme continues in the rooms' furniture selection featuring cut velvet lounge chairs and large dramatic Peony flowers painted on the guest bed headboards. The flowers, reminiscent of Florentine flower markets, pair elegantly with bed pillows featuring the Fleur-des-Lis, the symbol of Florence. Each guestroom highlights the uniqueness of the building's architecture, featuring one-off pieces in each room, while the portraits in the guest room corridors are inspired by the Renaissance and evoke the spirit of art, literature, and learning. The whimsical photos in the guest room corridors were created by Liz Heras, a well-known Los Angeles-based graphic artist who creates custom graphic artwork for large-scale hotel projects nationwide. With ample room for the family, an intimate backdrop for romance, and upgraded amenities, Villa Florence will keep you connected to home. ... more   less
