Hotel Emblem is a contemporary property located in the buzzing arts and theatre district of downtown San Francisco, USA. Recently renovated, this characterful, moderately-priced boutique hotel offers 96 ensuite rooms, a hotel bar and an artisan coffee shop. It’s located just a short walk from Union Square, the city’s key shopping and entertainment hub, and the surrounding streets buzz with restaurants, department stores, galleries, theatres, and boutiques. Hip and distinctive, the hotel offers stylish, modern accommodation at the heart of this iconic city.

Communal areas include the atmospheric Obscenity bar and lounge which serves up cocktails, contemporary art, and jazz, including regular live music performances. Emblem’s coffee shop, Bluestone Lane, located a few doors down from the hotel lobby is a popular spot for an artisan breakfast. Hotel guests are invited to use facilities at a neighbourhood gym. Valet parking and laundry services are available upon request, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the property. The hotel offers bicycle hire for exploring the city, and also provides an ‘unorthodox amenities’ service, supplying guests with idiosyncratic items such as bath bombs and etch-a-sketches upon request.

The accommodation comprises 96 light and airy guest rooms, and the decor nods to the neighbourhood’s artistic influences, with modern artworks and literary quotes adorning the walls. Each modestly-proportioned but well-appointed room comprises a comfortable double bed, lounge chair and side table, and a modern ensuite bathroom featuring sleek black granite units with a shower, and some with both bath and shower. Deluxe rooms are located on the higher floors of the hotel and come with a writing desk and chair. The more spacious premier rooms come with either a king-sized bed or two doubles. All rooms are equipped with hot drink facilities, HD TV, in room music system, and Wi-Fi.

Children of all ages are welcome. Although there are no child specific facilities on offer at the hotel itself, there’s plenty for all age groups to enjoy in the area. The larger, premier rooms can be made up with two double beds, making them a good choice for families.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
