Extremely convenient on Union Square. Awesome reception by staff. Helpful and focused. Clean rooms, great decor, sexy and still business like. Great for corporate guests. Expensive but they do have great package rates or just call a Sales Manager. I found it perfect for my needs.
Inexpensive and clean

Small but chic. Minimal but nice. Cost effective and in a great location.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Diva

Good Experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
My ife and I just stayed at the Hotel Diva the first time last weekend.
We stayed for one night and had a great time. The hotel was located very close to Union Square, and was walking distance to great dining and shopping. The staff was very polite, and the check-in procedure was quick. We found the rooms to be a little small but space was used well, so we felt comfortable. The room was very clean, and there were plenty of towels AND pilows! There was free internet access in a lounge on the floor our room was on, for quick searches for local shops and attractions, and there was a gym. There was no adjacent parking, but valet service was available right from the lobby. Top it all off with a Starbucks attached to the lobby, and, well...we didn't want to leave.
Overall; we really enjoyed our stay, and will return in April.

seems nice to me

from A TripAdvisor Member
I saw many complaints on this hotel after I booked it, so naturally I was worried. However, when I got there the employees were very nice.
Our room was ready immediatly, and extremely clean, and I am somewhat of a clean freek. It came with topsheets and all. Yes the rooms were small, and it was a little noisy, but hey its San Francisco. Anyhow, I would stay here again and do recommend it.

The staff went out of their way

from Prico000
To make sure our stay was pleasant. I had a friend of mine, who lived in the city, make the reservation for me but after reading some of the reviews I became quite concerned.I had planned a very pleasant romantic weekend with my wife, dinner and dancing, and wanted everything to be perfect.I spoke with Brandon about my concerns and he put me at ease with his excellent customer service.The hotel has an excellent location and our room was comfortable, clean and very modern. The staff was pleasant and responsive.You can stay one block closer to Union Square and paid double the price but I doubt if your room will be any nicer than at the Diva Hotel

The Diva was Great!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently stayed and the Hotel Diva and loved it! I was on a business trip and didn't have much time to spend in the city so the location was perfect. We were close to fabulous restaurants and tons of shopping.
All of the staff were attentive and pleasant. Our room was clean and definitely a stylish! I'm not sure why people complain about noise.
After all, it is the city! I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Hotel ready needs a facelift

from SlateNYC
Over the last ten years, I've stayed at the Diva four times. The location, across the Street from the American Conservatory Theater and two blocks from Union Square, stores and restaurants, is very convenient. The rooms are small, and the decor is (or was, in its heyday) industrial-boutique-hip.

But the hotel is showing its age, and the gleam is off. My room smelled stale. Carpets are looking worn, the built-in hair dryer in my bathroom was broken (the front desk did send someone out to the corner drugstore for a replacement), the guest computers in vending machine rooms are slow, antiquated iMacs, and all in all, I came away feeling that the hotel needs an overhaul.

The Diva: Something very different than Home

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Diva..a prima dona only in the sense that is unique in its simplicity. I found it very refreshing both in its furniture design and color choices. Soft, lite colors reminding me of the ocean. The furniture: clear,clean lines. I had a very spacious room.I was traveling alone. However, I thought if I wanted to have a romantice weekend and wanted to avoid clutter and frills I would choose the Diva.
Its very sensuous in a modern way. The room was quiet ( I had an inside room) I liked that the sink and mirror was within the room so that I could dry my hair without the steam from the shower. Upon going to bed ,when traveling, I often like to keep a light on in the bathroom. At the Diva I noticed this long white cylinder in the corner of the room.
It was a lamp, a column of light that could be dimmed to any level.
What a sweet nite lite! For a woman traveling alone this is a perfect hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful.Great location. They promptly called a Shuttle for me to the Oakland airport. The hotel is attached to a Starbucks. So coffe in the morning before my meeting was easy.
Again this is not the decor I would choose to live in but it certainly was refreshing. Thankyou, Refreshed Buisness Traveler

nice hotel, great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We got a nice room for $99 for a Saturday night. Two blocks from Union Square, one block from Max's deli. The continental breakfast is gone, but I it think it was replaced by the Starbuck's that you can enter from the lobby. The A.C.T. theatre is across the street. I think the other one is the Curan. The hotel has an extreme modern decor. Lots of brushed metal. It was interesting for the character. The bed was nice.

There was a fair bit of street noise and we were six floors up.

Good Price, Not so good hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We got a good rate for this hotel and the pictures on the website seemed convincing. We read that sometimes the double-double rooms are unavailable eventhough reserved, so we were very happy to check-in to both of our double-double rooms. Contrary to other's reviews, the people at front desk were pleasant. The little sitting area in the rooms were nice but the good stuff ends there. For starters, the hotel was difficult to find from the street. One of our two rooms smelled like mildew (and was told nothing could be done about it) and the alley that our rooms looked out to had some "interesting" activity in the evening and was extremely noisy from restaurant workers during closing time. A warm bed with great company at a good price made it good time... but I would not stay there again.

lost the keys

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is nice and the rooms are a decent size but the service was terrible. As soon as I got to the front desk, the worker was very cold and emotionless. He told me that they over booked the hotel so they didn't have a room. He wanted to put my party in a sister hotel which is in the tenderloin for the same price. I explained to him that I didnt want to stay in the other hotel. Luckily someone checked out. He then set me up in a room at the Hotel Diva. The next day we were going to drive to a nearby restaurant. Come to find out, the valet lost our keys. We drove from Reno and needed to drive back the next day. We spent an entire night in the valet parking lot looking for the keys.
Finally the GM for the valet hired a locksmith to make a new key. The GM waived our parking fees for 2 night and paid for the new key. But if you ask me, it didnt make up for a whole night in San Francisco. The next day, the manager of the hotel gave us a complimentary stay at the hotel for a later date. I guess overall we got some compensation back for all of our troubles but one night in my weekend stay was ruined because of outright neglect

Diva is a dive!

from SandiKensington
I woke up after one night with 6 huge insect/flea bites on my legs and arms. They called in an exterminator who couldn't find anything, so even though they did dry clean my few clothes, comped me for the night, and change my room, they wouldn't replace my $50 suitcase to ensure I didn't take the bugs home with me. More important was thier attitude of total disregard. Even though management saw my bites, they wouldn't acknowledge that this must have taken place in their bed!! They "weren't medical people" so they couldn't say what the problem was. I checked out and am now staying at the Warwick Regis, almost next door.
It's a delight.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Hotel variability There are many great hotels and many poor hotels in SF. A large reason for this is SF can have a good safe block adjacent to a rough and dilapidated block. Check other ratings and choose based on the worst rating.

Scalas Eat at Scalas on Powell - between Sutter and Post. Without doubt the best food and service in SF!

What to wear Bring summer to cool wear. In June 2007 the days were warm enough for us to wear tank tops and shorts. In the evening it was cold enough for a fleece jacket. Bring flip flops and a pair of tennis shoes.
