We checked in at midnight and did not get the most warm welcome. The staff seems to just rush through the check in process. The room was okay, nothing special to write about, it was pretty standard. I was given a room on the 9th floor so there was really no view there. I would probably try another hotel the... More

Thank you for staying with us and providing feedback. I apologize for the poor check-in experience. That is certainly the not level of service for which Marriott is so well known for. We will share your comments with our team, as all feedback is valued. Thank you again for the comments. Sincerely, Oscar R. More

As someone who has stayed at Marriott for a very long time, I am very pleasantly surprised by this location. While it is a very typical Marriott, the staff make the location relaxed and very pleasurable. It is probably the most relaxing Marriott I have ever stayed at. I love that Marriott finally lived up to the hype about relaxing... More

I stayed three nights at this union square hotel for business. I had a very nice high floor room on the executive level. Superior furnishing and bedding. I also was pleased to be able to open the window a bit and get some fresh foggy air in the room if I wanted. I would agree with some reviewers that noise... More

I am a loyal Marriott customer, and have stayed at most of the other Marriott properties in the city, but this property is my new favorite. The location, a block off of Union Square is the best! The Concierge level club room provides a great breakfast and evening snacks. Ask for a bay view room on a high floor --... More

Stayed here in late Oct 2014 on business for 2 nights. Big room with great views overlooking the city, facing towards the water was nice. The king-sized bed was comfortable, the A/C was not. It didn't work much and when it did, it "clicked" constantly making it hard to sleep. There was a doo-doo brown stain on the rug which... More

Paid over $500/night for a stay during fleet week. The hotel has a great location near the fabled cable cars, shopping, chinatown and downtown. I was there during fleet week and the price based on supply/demand was excessive for the room.
