Check in and leave the status quo behind. Hotel Emblem San Francisco, a Viceroy Urban Retreat in downtown San Francisco, where Nob Hill meets Union Square and the Theater District, is a haven for those that think as boldly as they live. Inspiring conversation in all the right ways, with plenty of modern provocations, Hotel Emblem will feature a cocktail-focused restaurant and 96 vibrant guestrooms. Every corner is designed to spark creativity, from the bar inspired by the Beat Generation, to the book-filled Writer’s Alcove in the lobby, to the eclectic guestrooms, where patterns play and an expressive vibe thrives. This hotel is a muse – and you will be, too. Lend your voice at the weekly poetry slam. Get lost in the flow of nightly live jazz. Tap out a few thoughts on the lobby typewriter.

We spent 4 nights at The Emblem Hotel in San Francisco. We had a pretty good time, the room was clean and spacious. Hotel location is perfect, close to all transport options, such as Bart, Muni and cable car. I recommend staying at the hotel, specially for first time travelers.

Hotel's Favourite
Perfect stay. Location easily walkable from BART station, to cable car, restaurants, shopping. The vibe and decor of the hotel is so unique and every day we found something new to look at. The rooms were immaculate, the beds and bedding so comfortable. The upscale bathroom had plenty of room, and the shower had good water pressure. The AC was cold and it ran without the cycling on/off some hotels use that can be noisy/disruptive. Our room on the 7th floor was very solid and so quiet (no traffic noise outside, no hallway noise, no noise from adjacent room- We did not even know there were guests in the room next to us until we saw them leaving one morning). The hotel is a really good value and it was a bonus to have the bar and the coffee shop on site. Absolutely everywhere we turned, staff members were gracious, friendly, and helpful-- not only to us, but to other guests no matter how big or small the questions. They never seemed impatient/rushed/bothered. Special thanks to Orion for helping us out one evening--stellar service is what makes guests return to properties and we will certainly be back.

I enjoyed my stay very much and particularly liked the "beat" feel to the rooms - great architecture and a lovely cool, relaxed but attentive vibe. The coffee from the cafe was first rate which made for a nice start to each day. The theatre district is appealing and there are some very good restaurants nearby to enjoy with solid uphill walks to aid with the digestion.

We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Hotel Emblem SF. This is our second time staying here and this will be our go to every time we come to town. We live in LA and come here often to visit family- I feel so happy we have found this place! It truly makes our family trips a million times less stressful. Emblem took a beautiful old building and turned into into a chic hotel that feels luxurious, yet does not take itself seriously. Right when you walk in, the front desk staff is an absolute dream. Both times, we had the pleasure of checking in with Fungai- who remembered us from our last visit. He is such a joyful, kindhearted soul and the exact type of person that you want greeting you upon arrival of a place you’re about to call home for a few days. You can tell how much he loves his job and his attention to the guest is above and beyond. His leadership with his staff shines through and they have cultivated an incredibly warm culture. My FAVORITE part of the hotel is their unconventional amenities list- tarot cards? Yes. Bath bombs? Duh. A type writer for poetry? Of course! They’re all free to use and check out and elevate the sense of fun and experience. I cannot recommend this hotel anymore highly. The location is central and you’re going to have such a wonderful time in this special city. Love you, Emblem!!!!! This is our new forever space.
