Right in the heart of Union Square but with the kid-favorite amenity of an outdoor heated pool (a rarity in downtown San Francisco), the Handlery Union Square Hotel is a popular choice for families. Rooms can fit up to four or five people, and the room service menu has a children's section.Recommended for:

The Handlery is conveniently located in Union Square, just steps away from shopping, restaurants, theaters and my favorite speakeasy, Bourbon & Branch.
The hotel has two sections: the historic and the premier section. I stayed in a double room in the historic section, which was a bit on the small side, but cozy all the same. The premier rooms are larger and are located next to their outdoor pool area. The layout of the section feels like a motel, but the amenities are nice with a iHome docking station and complimentary WiFi (only in the Premier section). All rooms were renovated in 2010, so the accommodations are modern.Recommended for:

A well-priced, friendly hotel that is family-owned and not part of some giant corporate chain so you are actually treated like normal customers here, not cattle. Right off market street, the Handlery is right next to wherever you would want to go in San Francisco for food, entertainment, dancing, the sights, museums, drinking or music. Good place to stay for couples who want to go classy but don't want to break the bank. Kimbo Slice, the famed ex-MMA fighter has been known to frequent the halls of the Handlery as well, get his autograph.
