Fodor's Review

The Spanish-colonial facade of this 16-story, theater-row hotel complements its newly renovated chic interior, a whimsical nod to pop art with orange and lavendar accents. Recently aquired by Marriott Autograph collection, Hotel Adagio has the steady backing of a trusted brand paired with boutique-hotel charm. The lobby houses a bar and restaurant hidden behind a sizable geometric wall of mirrors and glass bottles, where techies take advantage of the free Wi-Fi in public

spaces. Decent-sized rooms play on hues of fog, spring grasses, and Merlot grapes, with a dose of modern chrome and glass, and half the rooms have city views; two penthouse suites boast terraces overlooking the neighborhood. Additional amenities include flat-screen TVs, room service, and Wi-Fi (fees apply).

Adagio the way to go!

My wife and I just came back from a week in San Francisco and were very impressed with the Hotel Adagio. It is very stylish and hip without being pretentious or fussy. At the same time, it has a homey, comfortable feel and the guestrooms are bright, airy, and relaxed; they are also generously roomy. We found the staff to be mostly young, friendly, and very accomodating. The restaurant, Cortez, is a must! As far as the location of the hotel, it

is great; very central and convenient in all sorts of ways. Yes, there are panhandlers and homeless people around, but that seemed to be the case everywhere in SF, and common sense and alertness is all that is necessary to avoid any trouble. We also stayed at the Hotel Palomar while we were there, and I must say, the Adagio stacks up quite nicely. Highly recommended!

The service sinks it

One of the few truly poor service experiences I have ever had in San Francisco, and a real shame, since the value is otherwise exceptional for the rooms and location. Rooms are some of the largest I have seen in the city, comfortable and quiet, the architecture is unusual and interesting, and the location is 2 blocks from union Square. Exceptional rates can also be had via the internet...unfortunately, service was astoundingly awful, everyone from

the front desk to the bellstand to the management was poorly trained, disinterested, and certainly less than knowledgable. A real shame...a perfectly good hotel sunk by the worst staffing imaginable
