I stay at Marriott mostly because their hotels are reliable. We had a nice room and very clean as expected. The location was good in that there are severable good restaurants nearby. Also their concierge was very helpful in arranging things such as rental cars. The cable car drops off right in front of the hotel making getting around easier.

We enjoyed our stay at the Marriott while we were visiting the city in mid July. It is located in a convenient location to Union Square, Chinatown, Nob Hill, the cable cars, and the Financial District. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, especially the doormen who always greet everyone with a smile. The lobby is beautifully decorated in a... More

Great location. The hotel is close to Union Square but quiet enough. Starbucks and Walgreens are nearby. This is a great hotel and excellent customer service. Only real issue is no free wifi in rooms.

The first time in San Francisco and didn't know what to expect. When we arrived at the hotel, the bellman greeted us with a big smile! When we got in side the hotel, the staff were very friendly and gave us a map of the different attractions around the hotel. The restaurant staff and food was excellent! We would recommend... More

My sisters and I are very picky about where we stay while on vacations. We mostly always chose The Marriott, and have been pleased in the past, as we were this time also. Staff was amazing, helpful, and very attending. The food was really good. Very good location! Stores, Starbucks, Walgreens were on every corner. The people we met, that... More

Great location, close to Union square and transportation. It is the only hotel where we stayed on our trip to California, without free WiFi in the rooms! I kind of expected that to be standard for a 4 star hotel. WiFi is only free in the lobby! The rooms are comfortable, with modern décor. I did however find a ball... More

Whenever I visit S.F., this is my first value hotel choice. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, walking distance to Union Square, close to all forms of transportation, and the rooms are spacious and quiet. Lobby bar has daily "happy hour" with nice food options for the single traveler not interested in a solo trip to a local restaurant.... More

Our family of four (kids ages 12 and 14) recently traveled throughout California, ending our trip at the Marriott Union Square. What a comfortable hotel and great location. Just blocks from anywhere - shopping, Union Square, Chinatown - and the staff could not have been nicer. The doormen and were so friendly and helpful in assisting us in getting around... More

As a Marriott Platinum member, I think this is a great looking and well managed hotel that lives up to the Marriott standard. An excellent value just one short block from Union Square. The rooms are large well appointed. The concierge lounge is excellent with a great view of the city.

Luxury hotel. I stayed at the hotel for two nights. We can have a coffee at starbucks on 1st foor, and there are a lot of cafe near the hotel. The location is good bacause the hotel is near the market street. We took the streetcar near the hotel, and went to fisherman's walf with only two dollers.
