This hotel has a great location in the SoMa (South of Market St) area of San Francisco. This property has relied on it's location for much too long. The room hasn't been updated except for the addition of a flat screen (not high def) TV for at least 10-15 years. Fixtures, beds, furniture can be found in budget hotels elsewhere.... More

We stay here whenever we are in SF. The staff is tenured and super attentive and accomodating. Ten minute walk to Giants games, BART, and downtown. Many restaurants and bars in easy walking distance. Room was spotless, great shower, and toiletries. Plumbing issue that I created fixed promptly. All around great find. Great public areas to relax, congregate, or imbibe.

My friends and I stayed here for two nights. Check-in was smooth, even though I'd forgotten to bring any photo ID! Our room was spacious, with everything you need for a city break. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had free wifi. The only grumble I have is about the price of parking $54 per night! Yowzer!... More

This is a great hotel we stayed at over Spring Break. We had a suite because our daughter was with us. We were on the 16th floor which has a gorgeous view! Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi does not work very well in our room. I don't know if it's cause we're up so high or because we're on the corner. The... More

I hope that this was an isolated incident, but just in case, I have shared your experience with our department managers. Together we’ll find a solution on preventing future WiFi connectivity issues.

This was a standard Marriott, located in the financial district, on 2nd street. We opted not to rent a car due to the $54/night parking fee. We had 2 beds for 2 adults and 2 kids, breakfast was not included.

Nice hotel in good location, close to city centre attractions. Quite expensive but then everywhere seems to be in San fan. Cool fire garden at the back of the hotel. Bed was big and comfortable, recommend an upper floor room

This average downtown hotel was outrageously priced over 300$/night. No breakfast....the buffet was 21$/person. Parking was 54$/night and the bed was so soft my back hurt the next day. The staff was courteous and friendly but could do nothing with the charges. There are many smaller local hotels in the area at less than 1/2 this price. Will never stay... More

Please know we conduct competitive pricing analysis several times throughout the year.

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.
