Hotel Emblem (formerly the Hotel Rex) is a great, remodeled boutique hotel in the heart of Union Square. It kept the former Rex' literary theme but modernized it. So you have homage to the Beats but in a modern setting. The staff is amazing, always friendly and helpful. The rooms are terrific. I can't recommend the hotel enough when you visit SF. Close to everything.

The best features of this hotel are unavailable due to covid 19 - the bar/lounge area, coffee shop, and presence of employees. The rooms and overall structure, while clean, are not impressive. The whole place has a strong musty, damp smell; the elevator is a fright (functioning but tiny, and creaky). We were generally pleased with the location and the service from the one or two remaining staff people.
