Hotel Check In: Hotel Adagia San Francisco

The Hotel Adagio San Francisco is a treasure in the Union Square area downtown. The hotel offers 171 guest rooms and suites in a Spanish colonial revival architecture mixed with contemporary design, lots of art and personal service. It also houses The Mortimer which is ranked as one of the city’s hottest cocktail bars.

On this trip we were upgraded to their largest regular class room, known as Applause. Keeping with the hotel’s musical name and artistic flair, room sizes are categorized as Auditon, Act One, Encore and Applause, while the suites are known as the Actor’s, Stone and Samuel Suite.

Our room was quite generous in comparison to others and quite large for San Francisco. It was decorated in blue and yellow hues with traditional wood furnishings. If felt very European.

The king bed was comfortable and well organized with multiple USB and power plugins on both sides. One of the most common complaints we get is that older hotels don’t have enough power outlets. These days, you can never have enough.

The bathroom was simple but quite clean and had a bathtub. This runs counter to the current trend of hotels opting to replace bathtubs with walk-in showers. The bath products were unremarkable.

The room itself was quite comfortable and well suited to relaxing or working. Again the combination desk/table/minibar had good access to power plugs and a comfortable chair. The sitting area was also quite light and inviting.

The Hotel Adagio San Francisco is definitely recommended. The Mortimer was a great bar to start the evening at during Happy Hour to to have a nightcap at the end. The bar snacks were quite tasty as well.

Union Square is a vibrant area with lots of restaurants and bars where locals actually live, so it’s real and authentic. San Francisco is a great city with wonderful hotels, this is a good choice in the City by the Bay.
