Check in and leave the status quo behind.

Inspiring conversation in all the right ways, with plenty of modern provocations, Hotel Emblem features 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.

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Emblem. I was visiting San Francisco for a conference. The hotel is a short walk to the Moscone Center, where the conference was held. The front desk staff and guest services was extremely pleasant and helpful. I plan to stay here again soon.

Nice property. All you could ask for as a central point for playing tourist in San Francisco. Catch the cable car 1/2 block away, walk to restaurants and theater. Excellent staff and very clean, very unique accommodations.

Central to all, the hotel was a great choice for us! We loved the vibe. The staff was helpful, kind + courteous. The rooms were well-appointed and cleaned well daily. The "underground" concierge was a nice/cool touch. Very pleased, and we looked at A LOT of hotels to choose from. Can definitely hear street noise from the rooms, so if that's an issue - request a room in the back for a quieter stay.

Emblem is a neat looking hotel with a terminally hip style. However, it has hard beds, minimal clothing storage, dodgy in-room tech, no ice bucket, limited bathroom counter space, and a glacial elevator. It's cool looking, I'll grant you. Fun vibe, reasonably nice staff, etc. But the room itself just wasn't all that comfortable.

This hotel has amazing staff, ambience, location, food drinks, amenities, you name it... it was AMAZING. They treat each guest as if you are their most loyal customer. They went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I would visit SF again just to stay at this hotel!

The hotel has stared hosting a trivia game on Sunday's in the lounge. I went and had a terrific time. The staff was great. The bar was terrific. It was a lot of fun. I'd recommend it if you are looking for a fun adventure out of the normal Sunday offerings.

We just stay 4 nights at this hotel. It was in an excellent location for exploring San Francisco. We enjoyed the decor and vibe. The room was cute. A little small, but fine for us. The staff were all very nice. It was a little loud with some construction going on next door fairly early in the morning, but not a huge deal.
