    What a fun place to stay. This property was clean, modern, And captured a slice of San Francisco spirit through quotes in unexpected places. It is conveniently located in The Union Square area which made visiting attractions super easy. The room was nicely appointed with great decor and a fantastic shower. Safety measures were in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 and social distancing practiced. Highly recommend, we would stay there again.

    The Hotel Emblem offers great service, a fantastic Union Square location and a very modern, updated experience. They retained their old Hotel Rex's literary theme and have an updated experience that is somehow modern and also retro. A great place to stay and caring staff.

    Concierge is great but the rest is questionable.

    The concierge was great BUT the parking is $60 per day. We rented 2 rooms and for some reason they started calling at 11:59 a.m. telling the other room that they needed to leave or pay for late check out. However, they never called our room. They also refused to work with us to refund or even credit for a later stay when we thought we would reschedule because of Corona. We even offered to keep one of the rooms and spend the credit at the hotel and they still said no. They said either we keep the reservation or lose the money. The hotel blamed and blamed the hotel.
