Good 7.4 From 505 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great location
The stay was great and superb location. However, there is no drop off point at the Hotel door step therefore, we need to stop at the side street. A challenge for 2 Adults + 1 child especially when u have 4 big luggages. Other than that, everything was fine.

Very good 8.0
Friendly staff with excellent service. Special thanks to Sarah who offered help to print out a extremely important document without mentioning any charges. Location is right at Union Square, in the central of everything. Food, shopping and sight seeing is all nearby.

Very good 8.0
Good and simple
Good and simple accommodations in SF. Great location for most tourists. Don't worry too much about the lack of AC, as it's pretty cool in SF compared to other CA cities. Great service at the front desk. Small rooms but you shouldn't be spending too much time in there anyways!

Poor 2.0

I suffer from a traumatic brain injury. The safety of the flooring environment is egregious.i slipped and fell on the laminate floor as it is impossible to dry adequately! My left arm was cut very badly as I tried to parent the fall and hit the bathroom door casing.

Exceptional 10.0
Great Union Square hotel
The Herbert is better than comparable hotels in the area that I've stayed in. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious . There is no air conditioner but a ceiling fan is provided. Wifi is decent. There is a Walgreens next door. Union Square, Westfield Mall, Cable Car station, and Powell Street BART are just two blocks away, making this a good base for shopping, sightseeing, and dining. Hotel didn't charge for package deliveries. No restaurants in the hotel, but this is not an issue given the choices in the area. Bedding was too soft for my taste but acceptable. Cars are not allowed to drop off/pick up in front of the hotel, but this can be done around the corner 10 meters away. They don't hold your luggage, but you can leave them at sister property The Bartlett around the corner for $2 per piece. I will definitely stay here again.
