I was here for two days last month on a business trip and while the weather was completely atrocious, the hotel was relaxing and my room was quiet despite the many events happening throughout the lobby and conference rooms on the property. It has been raining for a week straight and it was incredibly humid in my room, even with... More

I've been staying here for years. This property is far enough away from the madness of the Marquis and Fisherman's Wharf, but close enough to both of those areas to easily get around. The bar is staffed by friendly, attentive staff. The food is standard Marriott fare, but there are also plenty of places that deliver (Check GrubHub). Always my... More

Great hotel! We stayed there for new year's and we have nothing but great words to say about it. The rooms are really big and comfortable. It has a nice little bar and the food there is delicious, even better if you pair it with a beer. It is pretty close to the San Francisco market which is good and... More

This hotel is right in the downtown area yet it's quiet and peaceful inside. The room was spacious and clean, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. There are plenty of restaurants at walking distance, and I really enjoyed having a Starbucks in the lobby. I know there are Starbucks everywhere in San Francisco, but this was quite convenient....

We arrived in this hotel on Dec 22 for 2night stay. We love this hotel, lobby is nice, rooms are clean and spacious ( coz I got 2 rooms). Hotel staff very accommodating and helpful even during peak season - winter time. I love to stay at the cafeteria. Overall, It was fun staying at this Courtyard by Marriot.

Great hotel, rooms clean, modern and quite! Great happy hour in the bar, 2 blocks from the Moscone Center. Mixture of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. On site parking is a little steep but few choices to park your car.

If you like to have a quiet hotel despite being downtown, this one is the right one for you. They accommodated my request and had a room with a very nice city view. The windows are appropriately insulated for noise. Very friendly staff. I was really surprised that many restaurants and even Starbucks close early, something like 6 PM downtown.... More

The hotel is in a great location. Very short walk to the BART station, which was very useful on our trip. The room was clean and spacious.

Close to the offices where I needed to be for a week. Great checkin experience, clean room. Did not rent a car this trip, can't comment on the valet parking. It's a walk to restaurants, so be prepared and wear comfortable shoes.

I had excellent sleep quality here and found the room and hotel clean. I have to say that the location feels a little sketchy/dirty. You are a few blocks from Union Square, which isn't really a problem, but if I were a single woman I would feel uncomfortable walking at night. Everything within the hotel is great though.

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.
