A History of our Hotel in Union Square

A Pillar of An Untouched Neighborhood

The Tilden Hotel sits in the fascinating confluence of Union Square and the Tenderloin, a neighborhood that boomed during the Depression Era as an affordable neighborhood for San Francisco's working class and creative types. Known for nurturing artists and musicians, Union Square and the Tenderloin are two of San Francisco's most thriving and vibrant communities and remains a creative hub of new California artists, galleries, restaurants, and more.
