Modern boutique hotel with recording studio near Union Square

Quirky, modern and ultra-hip, The Mosser Hotel is the only lodging option in San Francisco with a state-of-the-art recording studio on premises. Rooms in this Union Square hotel are clean and efficient. All have platform beds, while some have private bathrooms and others share. Annabelle's Bar & Bistro, the on-site restaurant, utilizes organic ingredients sourced directly from area farms.

Highlights
  • State-of-the-art recording studio
  • On-site Annabelle's Bar & Bistro
  • Platform beds
  • Walking distance to shopping at Union Square and Westfield Centre mall
Rooms

"The Mosser," as it's known locally, has 166 rooms in all -- 112 deluxe rooms with private bathrooms and 54 "economical" rooms with shared hall baths for travelers on smaller budgets. Each room boasts platform beds and vanity sinks. Rooms also come standard with robes, ceiling fans, hair dryers and free Wi-Fi. Many rooms have windows that look out onto busy city streets; some even have reading nooks built into bay windows.

Features

Opened in 1913 as the Keystone Hotel, the historic property was completely redesigned in 2003 and now feels modern and chic.

The centerpiece of that redesign was Studio Paradiso, a state-of-the-art recording studio that is available to hotel guests. Other standard amenities include ironing boards, two-line telephones and custom-designed furniture.

In early 2010, the hotel announced a commitment to embrace eco-friendly products in all the rooms. The Mosser family donates a portion of all hotel proceeds to reforestation, literacy and educational projects.

 

Dining

For a fabulous cocktail or tasty sandwich, pull up a stool at Annabelle's Bar & Bistro, a French-style eatery located on the ground floor. The restaurant features an eclectic wine selection.

This is a shared bathroom hotel!

This hotel was a shared toilet/ bathroom - did not even know such hotels existed anymore. I had no way of knowing this was the case when I booked.

Very Basic

This Hotel had a good location if you want to be close to union square. The room was very small but not a problem if you are traveling solo. Shared bathrooms were relatively clean the but ice machine was very loud and right outside my room. If you can get a good price this is a good hotel to just crash at.

Business trip

Everything about this hotel is SMALL. The rooms are super small. There was no room for our luggage. You could not have the closet door open and get in and out of the room. I have never seen such a small bathroom sink. I guess I should be lucky, some rooms had to share a bathroom be careful when booking that you don't book those rooms. There is only one elevator that stops at almost every floor without buttons being pushed. Good thing there are only 8 floors! There is a HUGE construction project going on outside the hotel. They start work at 6:00 AM, and since there is not AC we had to open the window for fresh air. If you like being up early, this is great! The positive I can say about this place is that the rooms were clean and the location is great. It would be a good hotel if you were on you own.

Good for the price

Pros: Very good location While not cheap, it was the least expensive hotel available at the time Interesting, old-fashioned atmosphere Cons: Extremely tiny room. There is no room to walk around. You basically sit on your bed or leave the room. Shared baths - although this was not a problem No air conditioning - not usually needed in San Francisco, but I was a little warm Terrible sound proofing. I could hear the people next to me talking half the night. I doubt I would stay there again unless price was really a big motivator.

A good experience

The only reservation I have about staying at this hotel again is that it is difficult staying in a room without a bathroom (I chose to stay in one of their rooms without). It is always easier to have a bathroom. That said, everything was as could be without a bathroom. I never had any difficulty accessing a toilet or shower when I wanted it, and there is a sink in every room. In other regards: the hotel is centrally located, the staff were helpful, the rooms were clean with up-to-date furnishings, and the bed was comfortable. All for considerably less than I would have paid to stay in a comparable hotel (with a bathroom) nearby. Definitely value for money.

For quick and expensive yet good quality food, try eating at the Emporium (an up-scale food fair) at the Westfield Mall around the corner from the hotel.

Wow, smallest hotel room ever!

I guess I cant complain for the price, but that was one small hotel room! They made it work though. No desk or night stand really, just a bed, a chair, and a small stool that served as a flat surface for setting things down. Tiny sink in the main room separate from the bath room, which had a stand-up shower. No closet. One improvement would have been at least some hooks and hangers to hang clothes somewhere. But for the price, it was a good value. I would stay there again.
