Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Hotel Rex

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Old-timey, intimate glamour near Union Square"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This hotel is a great choice for any group that wants to feel as if they've stepped into the "Mad Men" world of the 1960s in a big city. This small, intimate property has old world style: Some of my favorite details included the rows of bookshelves and antique banker's desks that line the lobby, which lead up to a globe-lined brass bar. They also have a fantastic art collection, including everything from classic portraits and sculptures to interpretive caricatures. Their meeting room (which opens into the lobby) is a great spot to host an event. It is not very large, but is the perfect size and style for an off-mic speaker or a cocktail reception. For this reason, it is not uncommon for this hotel to have a schedule of interesting events taking place in this venue, which guests are almost always welcome to attend. Their conference room, which is set in a beautifully decorated library, is a great place to hold a meeting. Even their business center has antique typewriters above the modern computers. The rooms are very nice, and follow the same theme as the rest of the property, although not to the same extreme. They are mostly single bed rooms. In short, this is a prime hotel for a business meeting or a small social event. Their location near Union Square puts them right in the heart of the city, while maintaining an intimate atmosphere and decent prices. If you want a big, impressive hotel this is not the best choice... but if you want an intimate hotel with a lot of style, this is a great option.

Property Description

The Hotel Rex was inspired by the San Francisco art and literary salons of the 1920's and 30's. Vibrant and alive, the clubby lobby surrounds guests with distinctive period furnishings, walls of antiquarian books, and an exceptional collection of exotic objects and original portraits and murals. Literary events regularly unfold in the lobby bar, and the hotel's new Cafe is an enchanting blend of a Northern California cafe and authentic French bistro. Guestrooms are decorated in a palate of Provencal colors and feature the work of local artisans as well as an impressive menu of modern amenities. The Hotel Rex has recently reopened after completing its spectacular million-dollar renovation. The Hotel Rex is located in the heart of the theater district and one block away from Union Square, the center of the City's shopping district. The hotel is walking distance to Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Tiffany, Nordstrom, several other fashionable boutiques, art galleries, Moscone Convention Center, Yerba Buena Gardens and the Museum of Modern Art. The Powell Street Cable Car line is one block away and travels to Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown and North Beach.
