About Us

The Layne Hotel is a unique boutique hotel, built in 1912 and recently restored to preserve the charm of the older building while also providing modern facilities. The Layne Hotel situated in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square District is the perfect choice for both leisure and business travel.

Throw on your walking shoes and explore The City By The Bay. The famed Fisherman’s Wharf is less than 2 miles from our door. Visit Chinatown on the way to the water, with its rich history and fun shops. Enjoy a few minutes of meditation by walking the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral, only a 10 minute walk up Jones St. For one of the best views around, head up to the Coit Tower for a 360-degree view of the city and the bay including both the Golden Gate and Bay bridges. If your feet get tired catch a ride on one of the most popular attractions – the cable cars. The Powell-Hyde route is only 3 blocks away from us.

When it’s time to eat your choices endless and you will find most cuisines within a few blocks of the hotel. Whether it’s seafood on the wharf, a big bowl of pasta in Little Italy, or fresh sushi and a hand crafted cocktail, you are sure to find something to satisfy every craving.

We look forward to your visit!
