In 1928, San Francisco unveiled a hotel to welcome pursuers of opportunity, creators of connection, and takers of roads untaken.

Our reopening as the Beacon Grand pays homage to the spirit of all the history makers who built The City and this hotel. As a vibrant social beacon, we will once again welcome locals and guests to San Francisco’s “living room,” drawn by the gleam of a rooftop star.

Original architectural details and artisan craft merge with modern comforts and flourishes throughout. Old-world iron, stone, and plaster craft befit the landmark and purposeful updates never compromise that timeless feeling of ascending our grand staircase, or searching gilded ceilings for Prohibition-era bullet holes.

Every guestroom and suite has been fully renovated with contemporary flourishes to complement the legendary craftsmanship. With high ceilings, European oak floors, and eco-luxury amenities,
Classic guestrooms offer plush comfort and signature design, while Grand guestrooms and suites boast enhanced amenities and splendid city views.

Our hotel’s Union Square location grants you easy access to The City’s living room. From shopping sprees to cooking classes, spas to art galleries, and tours to late-night shows, there are endless things to do within steps of the Beacon Grand.

This is our guests' favorite part of San Francisco, according to independent reviews.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.7 for a two-person trip.

Beacon Grand A Union Square Hotel Formerly Sir Francis Drake Hotel has been welcoming Booking.com guests since Apr 20, 2009
