Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Adagio

550 Geary St., San Francisco, California 94102, United States See on Map

The Spanish-colonial facade of this 16-story, theater-row hotel complements its chic interior. Boasting a great location close to posh Union Square shops and funky Tenderloin bars, this property caters to the cool kids wanting an address in the heart of the action.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Pets are welcome (for a fee) and are given their own amenities package complete with maps to dog parks and treats.


Decent-sized rooms play on hues of fog, spring grasses, and Merlot grapes, with a dose of modern chrome and glass; half have city views, and two penthouse suites boast terraces overlooking the neighborhood.


Baths feature showers over tubs, irons, and a nice selection of toiletries.


The lobby houses a sleek bar and restaurant hidden behind a sizable geometric wall of mirrors and glass bottles, and techies take advantage of the free Wi-Fi in public spaces.


A 24-hour fitness center features cardio equipment, yoga, Pilates props, and weights.


The farm-to-table restaurant Green Room serves a hearty breakfast. After dark, small bites like guacamole, or shareable dishes like pizzas populate the menu of the Mortimer Bar and Lounge, just off the lobby.


The sexy Mortimer Bar and Lounge serve classic cocktails like Sazerac or an Old Fashioned, wine and beer in an upscale space featuring large windows and wingback chairs.

Head to the lounge at Happy Hour for drink deals.


Getting Around

The hotel offers valet parking ($59 a night). Many travelers prefer to take advantage of the city's public transport, especially since the cable car, Muni buses and trains, and BART trains all stop within a few blocks. Walkers love the proximity to Union Square, Nob Hill, Chinatown, SoMa, and North Beach.


Dig into the city's best Cal-Hawaiian cuisine--their poke blows all others out of the water--at Liholiho Yacht Club (4-minute walk). Fans of Japanese cuisine should head to the wildly popular Mensho Tokyo SF (3-minute walk) for steamy ramen.


Bar-hopping around the hotel is a popular experience, with upscale spots slinging craft drinks at Rye (3-minute walk), or whiskey-based cocktails at Bourbon and Branch (4-minute walk) too close to ignore.


Posh, unpretentious, and pet-friendly make this a willing combination for those seeking a touch of class in a neighborhood known for its nightlife.
