    A Union Square Hotel

    Beacon Grand San Francisco Lobby

Our Hotel. Your Story.

San Francisco was birthed by dreamers. Hustlers and strivers; writers and musicians; rebels and revolutionaries. All have made this place their own. Steeped in that heritage, the Beacon Grand invites you to connect with tradition, dream the future, and claim this city as your own.

Our Knowledge is Key

Our Social Hosts thrive on your thirst for discovery. They are facilitators of cultural curiosity, accomplices in your quest to get under the city’s skin. The latest exhibition or cinema screening. That pop-up club where your favorite DJ is doing a secret set.

A drink at the place that’s still a whisper. Whatever your tastes, we aim to anticipate, because thinking one step ahead is our business.

Social by Design

The Post Room is the heart of the hotel, communal living room during the day and lively gathering spot at night. And curated curiosities beacon from the legendary Starlite Room atop. A destination for visitors and locals alike, the opportunities to mix and mingle abound.
