Sir Francis Drake Hotel - a Kimpton Hotel

450 Powell Street, Union Square, San Francisco, CA 94102
4
14 reviews

Stayed here during the holidays with my family and it is a hotel with a lot of character. Apparently one of the most haunted places in San Francisco but it has definitely been updated. Still has a vintage touch though. Rooms are nice but bathrooms are tiny, the location is prime as it is walking distance to Union Square.

    I loved the Cheesecake factory, however, be prepared for some huge waiting line. I wasn't in the mood to wait, so I ordered take out Macadamia Caramel cheesecake and the piece was so huge that it lasted me 3 days on the hotel minibar.

    I don't think this will become a regular drinking place on my list, but it's a place everyone has to visit once. Definitely a staple of SF culture. Highly recommend getting the lava bowl, just be careful!

    Though the French-Vietnamese menu items can be a bit overpriced, Le Colonial is the perfect spot for a romantic night out or for a special dinner with friends. The restaurant hosts music in the lounge above the restaurant almost every night - my favorite being Le Hot Jazz on Mondays. The gypsy-swing quartet plays while a small number of friendly ...

    Really good tapas-style restaurant in my favorite alley in San Francisco - Cafe Claude, another favorite of mine is only a few feet away. The cocktails were well made and the tapas were authentic.

    Great restaurant that can be packed on any night of the week as it stays open late. If you have to wait, grab a drink at the bar and congregate at the hostess stand with the rest of the folks just waiting on the stairs. It's a small spot, and feels quite cramped when busy. Popular for the variety of ...

    I wish I had discovered this place sooner! This gogoboter is a sucker for good combos and ramen. Their ramen / udon / soba combos are amazing. The bowls of noodles in their combos are nearly full size with generous portions. The best part, was the uni and ikura donburi that I chose as part of my combo. Their ramen ...

    Burger Bar is a burger joint from a gourmet chef (Hubert Keller) at gourmet prices (~$20 a burger) that serves painfully-mediocre food. On the list of well-known, superstar chefs, Hubert Keller has always been the one that I always scratch my head about -- I thought Fleur de Lys was all presentation with mediocre taste. But a burger joint shouldn't ...

    On a recent visit to San Francisco my friends and I ate at The Rotunda. I have heard about this place and it also had decent Yelp reviews so I decided to give it a try. Our party of 6 walked in without a reservation. We were seated in a timely manner. We waited about 20 mins, but this is ...

    The diner serves pretty much what you'd expect out of a diner. Nothing fancy for sure, but it's decent compared to some of the other places in the area to grab a bite.

    Excellent sushi, the dragon roll is shown. You need reservations, even for one person at the sushi bar. Note that there is another sushi place nearby called Akiko's sushi so make sure you have the address right.

    Sugar Cafe is both coffeehouse and nightclub, and I'm a bigger fan of the former. By day, it's relaxing, with its large windows offering ample sunlight. By night, it's a bit pretentious and the drinks cost too much. Service is okay. There was an instance when we were the only ones in the back and the speakers were blasting into ...

    Innovative items like geranium ice cream and sea urchin with asparagus create not just a luxurious dining experience, but a slightly adventurous one as well. With just 22 seats, you'll need to book far in advance, but the experience will be well worth it. Fresh-baked bread is a diner favorite, as is their vegetarian tasting menu. Since they do a ...

    It's a decent French bistro in Union Square. Very small, intimate, and noisy. We stopped by for dinner before our reception. My date ordered the onion soup and New York steak. I ordered the escargots and skirt steak with fries. My snails were delicious, piping hot with butter but not enough garlic. The steak was solid, not enough for me ...

    Steaks cooked to perfection. Nice ambience and great location inside of the Westin St. Francis hotel right on the Union Square. It's a great place to have an awesome food and go for a romantic walk after dinner.
