Inn at Union Square Wins TripAdvisor Certificate of ExcellenceTripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, fueled almost entirely by tourist reviews of hotels, dining, attractions and more businesses related to travel in order to help people make the best decisions of what to do, what to eat, and where to stay on vacation. Since 2009, it has highlighted the top 10% of businesses and attractions worldwide with its TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award. This award is given purely on the basis of traveler reviews, and businesses must meet high standards, such as never dipping below 4 out of 5 stars while receiving a certain number of reviews in a year. Size, location, and type of business have no effect on the ratings. The intention, and end result, is a unique award which immediately tells potential guests and visitors that the overwhelming majority of customers have great experiences at a specific place.
This year, the Inn at Union Square won the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award. According to the site, not only is it in the top 10% of hotels worldwide, it is also consistently on the list of top 5 best hotels in San Francisco. The site asks for ratings of every hotel’s location, sleep quality, rooms, service, value and cleanliness, and the Inn at Union Square ranks above four of five stars on each category. Guests love the helpfulness and knowledgeability of the staff, as well as the hotel’s amenities and attention to detail, like providing complimentary champagne and chocolates for a birthday stay, complimentary evening wine tastings, delivering newspapers to the room, or the coffee areas on each floor.
