Hotels In Union Square
Union Square got its start in 1847 when the City of San Francisco commissioned surveyor Jasper O’Farrell to design its streets and parks. Named on the eve of the Civil War in support of the pro-union rallies, the Square became a popular district for homes and then businesses. After the 1906 earthquake, it was rebuilt and turned into San Fran’s number one shopping destination. In 1941, the world’s first underground parking garage was built under Union Square.
