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.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
