Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Cartwright Hotel Union Square Best Western Premier Collection

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.
