The Andrews Hotel

624 Post St., San Francisco, California 94109, USA

Michele Bigley

Two blocks west of Union Square, this Queen Anne–style abode began its life in 1904 as the Sultan Turkish Baths; today rooms are tight but well decorated, and the friendly staff goes out of its way for guests. An on-site restaurant, complimentary morning treats, and afternoon wine adds to the allure.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The hotel does not have A/C, but in San Francisco, there are typically only a couple days a year you might desire additional cooling.

room

Rooms feature Victorian reproductions, ceiling fans, old-fashioned floral curtains with lace sheers, and iron bedsteads draped with soft bedding. Guest rooms include small flat-screen TVs and leather chaises and have large closets.

bathroom

Tight bathrooms dressed in white unfortunately do not feature spa-like appeal. However, pristine tiling, eco-friendly bath amenities, and good water pressure do the job.

lobby

The lobby—dominated by a huge Elliott grandfather clock and the original cage-style elevator—is inhabited by a kind staff.

dining

A welcoming breakfast, including local Graffeo coffee and Bakers of Paris pastries, is displayed on each floor for guests to take back to rooms. Fino, the hotel restaurant, gets rave reviews from guests for its splendid service and delicious Italian fare.

drinking

Complimentary wine is served each evening in the lobby.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Valet parking rates are aligned with other nearby properties, which makes having a car in the city quite pricey. Walkers can easily explore nearby Nob Hill, Tenderloin, Union Square, Financial District and Chinatown easily enough. Muni buses stop within a block in each direction. At Powell Street Station (7-minute walk) hop on the Muni train to Golden Gate Park, or the BART to Oakland and San Francisco airports.

Restaurants

Spicy papaya salads and roasted duck make Lers Ros (7-minute walk) stand out from the crowd for Thai food fans. People come from around the city to line up for ramen at Mensho Tokyo SF (4-minute walk).

Bars

Sip outside on the heated terrace and enjoy a martini at Jones (2-minute walk). If you prefer cocktails that favor rye, bourbon and scotch, look no farther than Rye (4-minute walk) for a classy environment.
