Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Cartwright Hotel Union Square by Best Western Prem

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Nice and affordable option a block away from Union Square"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Cartwright Hotel is a solid option for groups wanting to be in the center of Union Square action. They offer affordable rates for the city and have good, easy style. Their accommodations and amenities are quite nice, albeit very basic. This is a professional and quiet hotel for a business meeting, but perhaps not my #1 choice for a social event. Groups will find no problems with this property, and enjoy walking merely 1 block to Union Square and other attractions without paying an exorbitant price.

Verified Reviews of Cartwright Hotel Union Square by Best Western Prem

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Clean Property, Great Staff, and Close to Everything"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I had a group of 40 people at the Cartwright and was very happy with everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms (though in some cases a little small), were very clean and the location was terrific. Close to so many different things to do in downtown San Francisco and the price was reasonable. My group will definitely visit there again next year.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"This is a great tool and I will highly recommend it to others. Loved getting quotes from all different hotels in the area. It not only saved me countless hours of blind calling, but it took out the guesswork of where hotels are and what they are offering. I loved being able to check out their websites before dealing directly with the manager at the hotel." D.O. - Hershey, PA
