SF Map: M, 7

Union Square, a shopper's paradise of designer boutiques and large department stores, is bounded by Stockton, Powell, Post and Geary streets. Located around the square are Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, FAO Schwarz, Tiffany, Niketown, Gucci and many more. Also located nearby (closer to Market Street) are Planet Hollywood, Virgin Megastore and the San Francisco Shopping Center (home to Nordstrom).

Maiden Lane is a two-block pedestrian alley worth a stroll for additional shopping and a stop
at 140 Maiden Lane, a Frank Lloyd Wright designed building. At the center of the square is the Dewey Monument, a tribute to the commodore's triumph in the Spanish-American War.

Directly facing the square is the Westin St. Francis Hotel, built in 1904 by Charles Crocker. Ride the glass elevator in the St. Francis Tower for a spectacular view. Other elegant hotels in the area include the Hilton, the Pan Pacific, the Nikko, the Four Seasons Clift, the Sir Francis Drake, the San Francisco Marriott, and the Grand Hyatt.

San Francisco's theater district is steps from Union Square. The Curran Theatre, Stage Door Theatre and Theatre on the Square present works by local artists as well as Broadway hits.
