In a town full of great shopping, Union Square is the neighborhood with the most abundant retail therapy, not to mention fine hotels, great meals and green spaces to sit outside and enjoy San Francisco’s temperate climate.
Virtually every name brand in fashion is on or near the 2.6-acre square, a landmark park in the heart of the downtown shopping and hotel district.
The Grand Hyatt and Taj Campton Place hotels are just off the square on the Stockton St. side, along with a cluster of upscale boutiques. On the Powell St. side, the Westin St. Francis Hotel holds pride of place. South of Market St. at the foot of Powell St., the Westfield San Francisco Centre is home to Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.
