If you're coming to San Francisco I would highly recommend this hotel. The location is great. It's centrally located just a few minutes away from the Bart and from market street. The hotel it self is modern with spacious rooms. The best part of the hotel is the customer service. Thanks to Keeley who provided some great customer service my... More

A classic business hotel, close to the offices at SOMA and Financial. For the same price there are many other more interesting places to stay in San Francisco. If you are in SF for business, want to play safe and are not an adventurous type, this hotel is a good bet for you

Stayed here for a conference at the Moscone Center--it's about a 10-12 minute walk to the conference center. It's located in a nice area of SF---in SoMa. Nice facilities--nice gym and fire pit adjacent to the bar. Rooms were typical of Courtyards---clean and well maintained but nothing super fancy, which is totally fine by me but still on par with...

My go to hotel chain is Marriott and they never fail me. I greatly appreciated the greeting I received and the appreciation from the staff that I used the mobile app to check in ahead of time. And they were quick to offer up advice about the local happenings since I arrived on the 4th of July. The room was... More

The staff at this Marriott make this Courtyard a real standout. From the reception desk to the restaurant everyone is helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean and comfortable and is located very close to Pier 39. We had a king corner room with a fantastic view of the city.

I spent two nights at the Marriott Courtyard while in San Francisco for business. The hotel met Marriott's high standard for quality and cleanliness. The only amenity I used during my stay was the fitness center which was outfitted with the usual array of treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, and free weights. The hotel was conveniently located and just a ten... More

The hotel is located within walking distance from market street and Union Square, although it's a rather long walk. Valet parking is great if you have a car, even though it's rather expensive for a European like me. The facilities include two options for breakfast, both the hotel restaurant and a Starbucks. The rooms are standard Marriott Courtyard ones and... More

Have stayed at a lot of Courtyards, can tell you this is one of the better ones. The rooms are very quiet, well equipped, and spacious.

The rooms were clean and the breakfast was great: cooks were cooking anything we wished live at the spot. The staff were very friendly and the hotel is very central located, which made it the perfect place for us to stay to see the beautiful city of San Francisco.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
