About This Property

In 1928, San Francisco unveiled a hotel to welcome pursuers of opportunity, creators of connection, and takers of roads untaken. Our reopening as the Beacon Grand pays homage to the spirit of all the history makers who built The City and this hotel. As a vibrant social beacon, we will once again welcome locals and guests to San Francisco’s “living room,” drawn by the gleam of a rooftop star. Original architectural details and artisan craft merge with modern comforts and flourishes throughout. Old-world iron, stone, and plaster craft befit the landmark and purposeful updates never compromise that timeless feeling of ascending our grand staircase, or searching gilded ceilings for Prohibition-era bullet holes. Every guestroom and suite has been fully renovated with contemporary flourishes to complement the legendary craftsmanship. With high ceilings, European oak floors, and eco-luxury amenities, Classic guestrooms offer plush comfort and signature design, while Grand guestrooms and suites boast enhanced amenities and splendid city views. Our hotel’s Union Square location grants you easy access to The City’s living room. From shopping sprees to cooking classes, spas to art galleries, and tours to late-night shows, there are endless things to do within steps of the Beacon Grand.

Pet Amenities

Pet amenities include plush pet-bed loaners in your guest room, food, water bowls and mats. They also offer a concierge list of nearby pet-friendly restaurants, parks, groomers and pet boutiques; door hangers to alert other hotel guests and staff that your cat, dog, or other beloved pet is in the room; and courtesy bags for walking your dog. Plus - nightly wine receptions where pets are welcome to join the party at select hotels!

April young couple March 21, 2023
Positives: The property is beautiful and we loved the view from our room. Very clean and well kept. The location couldn’t be better with premium shipping steps away and lots of restaurants nearby.
Will definitely look to stay...
Andrea group March 21, 2023
Positives: The Beacon is beautiful, the staff is excellent very helpful and super accommodating. Beds and linens very comfy
Negatives: The room is very small, for the amount you're paying for the hotel I would have expected a larger room. Not sound proof at all, you can hear everything. Some of the updates were done quickly and you can see a lot of issues when you look, especially in the bathrooms.

Positives: Everyone was genuinely nice. We had a great two day visit for some shopping and SF time. We will diffidently book this hotel again if we can get a great rate like we did this weekend!
Negatives: Maybe a few cheaper items on the menu when you just want a snack? Really though it was a great visit!!!
We had a wonderful time...

Trent young couple March 20, 2023
Positives: Beautiful historic building in a great location. Bed was very comfortable.
Negatives: The bathroom was so small it was barely functional. The sink was tiny, no counterspace at all. Also no closet, just a very narrow built-in for hanging clothes.
Great location!
Tim group March 19, 2023
Excellent hotel with great staff,...
Fabiana review category business travellers March 19, 2023
Positives: Great location, refurbished hotel. Nice rooms.
Negatives: All of the members of the group had problems with Amazon goods provenly delivered but not found by the staff or said to have been picked up by someone else. This gives a sense of dishonesty and disorganization. Also, I was there during 2 days (12-14 and 16-18 of March). The recepcionist of the first stay was great. The recepcionist of the second stay was louzy, was not responsive to my queries.
Nice stay. Still missing me...
Maksim group March 19, 2023
Nicole young couple March 18, 2023
Positives: Stunning heritage hotel. Beautifully renovated. Exudes old world charm and character where today, most hotels are bland and cold feeling from being overly modern and trying too hard to be chic. Magnificent entrance. Friendly and attentive staff. Extremely comfortable bed, I slept very well here. The piano bar in their lobby is a must. The pianist/singer in there was fantastic.
Fabulous hotel
