Campton Place Taj Hotel

Campton Place Taj Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This luxurious, 110-room boutique one block from Union Square is an enclave of posh rooms and pampering service in a dense city. There aren't many features here -- just a gym and a small business center -- but its top-notch service and luxe room amenities make it one of the city's most special hotels.

Clift Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Known for its Redwood Room bar, the Clift's hip scene is typical of the Morgans Hotel Group, which bought the historic hotel from Four Seasons and reopened it in 2001 after a makeover by Philippe Starck and Ian Schrager (the latter of Studio 54 fame). The lobby and the 350 small but comfortable rooms are short on amenities but high on scene and style.
Hotel Monaco

Hotel Monaco Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This stylish boutique hotel is one of the best upscale options near Union Square. It's not the cheapest option in this pearl category (the nearby Clift and Hotel Nikko often have lower rates), but many guests will prefer it for its fun, eclectic decor and thoughtful freebies. The rooms are on the small side but have comfortable beds, quirky-yet-elegant style, and modern technology. The lobby and "living room" are great places to hang out, especially for the free wine receptions and morning coffee.
Hotel Zetta San Francisco

Hotel Zetta San Francisco Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 116-room upscale Hotel Zetta San Francisco offers a uniquely crafted hip refuge that’s close to Union Square, with a decor of cool repurposed furnishings, a funky recreational room with games, a TV lounge, an on-site restaurant and lobby bar, a state-of-the-art fitness center, stylish conference rooms, and a Mac computer corner. Sleek, industrial rooms offer flat-screen TVs, and illy espresso makers. Rooms can get noisy from street traffic and neighboring guests; some parts of the area look seedy. Guests might also want to check out The Scarlet Huntington hotel.
W San Francisco

W San Francisco Rating: 4.0 Pearls

An outpost of the generally solid "lifestyle"-focused chain, the W San Francisco in the SoMa art district offers clean, airy rooms, and above-average amenities in a whimsical, stylish setting. But despite efforts to seem boutique-y, the W is still a big, national chain at the end of the day, and the approach is less about personal touches than overall atmosphere.
Hotel Vitale

Hotel Vitale Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The stylish, 200-room Hotel Vitale has an ideal location on the Financial District's revitalized waterfront, surrounded by fine dining. Its beautiful guest rooms, top-tier services, reputable spa, and numerous freebies -- Wi-Fi, daily yoga, passes to use the nearby YMCA's lap pool -- make it a great luxury choice.
The Scarlet Huntington

The Scarlet Huntington Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Taken over in late 2011 by Singapore-based Grace International, this 136-room historic hotel in swanky Nob Hill has an attentive staff, a quiet, intimate atmosphere, and old-world grandeur to spare. Homey rooms, though not quite luxurious, are large for the price. Plus, guests can use the indoor pool and other facilities at the excellent spa for free. All in all, one of the city's best boutiques.
Hotel Drisco

Hotel Drisco Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 48-room property has an upscale, refined vibe that fits in nicely with its location in Pacific Heights, one of the most affluent neighborhoods in San Francisco. While common spaces are few, all are lovely; the lobby, with free coffee, feels like an attractive living room with antique furniture and floral fabrics. The cheery breakfast room is where both the free continental breakfast and the free evening wine reception, complete with hors d'oeuvres, take place. Rooms have look with dark wood furniture, pastel headboards, and gilded accents, and all are incredibly spacious. The on-site fitness center in the basement is small, but guests have free access to a YMCA, and though there's no full restaurant, a limited menu is available for 24-hour room service.
Hotel Carlton, a Joie de Vivre hotel

Hotel Carlton, a Joie de Vivre hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 161-room upper-middle-range Hotel Carlton is a comfortable property located located near Polk Street and Union Square in Lower Nob Hill. Built in 1927, the Carlton has an eclectic decor, with Middle Eastern and Asian influences. The fusion theme continues into its restaurant, Saha, which blends Yemenese and Arabic cuisine with California and French touches. The hotel also has a meeting room and a 24-hour business center. Rooms come with flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffeemakers, and offer city views. Be aware that rooms are not air-conditioned, and some receive noise from the street and adjacent rooms. The Galleria Park, also a Joie de Vivre hotel, offers quieter internal rooms with minibars.
Villa Florence

Villa Florence Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 182-room Villa Florence in Union Square admirably rises to the challenge of bringing Italy's culture and countryside to one of San Francisco's loudest, busiest, and most commercial districts. Rooms combine up-to-date technology with old-world style, but the hotel goes overboard on the Italian theme, and its amenities and services are uneven.
