“Fantastic Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the MMC for 4 nights in Jun and I have to say we were extremely happy with our choice. We're both in the Royal Air Force so we qualified for the discounted rate ($142 + tax) which is great value considering the fabulous location and quality of the Hotel. This price included happy hour (complimentary booze) 4-6pm every night and free breakfast every morning. We used their laundry facilities too which again was free (just ask for detergent at the reception). The staff were always courteous and happy to assist you in any way they could. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend it to anyone wishing to explore the great city of San Francisco.

The Marines Memorial Club/Hotel is the only place we stay at when visiting San Francisco Bay area. The rooms are always comfortable, Breakfast is great with express breakfast on the 4th floor in the Business center (5:30-10a) for the early risers. The Hosted Happy hour is a time to meet people from all over this great country of ours and to enjoy the view. The Library on the 11th floor houses military books and many artifacts. We stayed on the 5th floor this time and which is called "Memorial Hall". The hallway contains plaques that Members have purchased to honor loved ones a must read. The Hotel is a living Memorial to those who have served our Great Country. Parking is close by and is worth the cost. The Marines Memorial Club continues to be our go to place to place to stay in San Francisco.

Using a reciprocal membership from Australia we were lucky enough on this occasion in SF to enjoy the facilities and warm hospitality of this fine club. The quality of our room was excellent (a corner king room). The ambience of the hotel and its facilities are first rate and well maintained. The lovely quality breakfast and the drinks happy hour each evening added to the enjoyment of our stay.The business centre was well equipped, a self service laundry is available and free for guests to use. The library is just wonderful to browse the shelves of all the titles available. A tour of the club reveals some beautiful and poignant displays of military history and the lives of some wonderful Americans who have given their service to a great country. If you are lucky enough to be able to stay at the MMC enjoy every minute. I felt it was a privilege to be able to stay there, thank you to all the staff for their friendly quality service.

Room Tip: Corner king was spacious though some of the suites look huge. We stayed on level 5 and it was very...

This hotel is a memorial to the U.S. Marine Corps. There is memorabilia on just about every floor. Ours had a tribute to Joe Rosenthal, the photographer who took the picture of the Marines hoisting the flag on Mt. Surabachi on Iwo Jima. The hotel has a great location close to Union Square. The service was very good and most responsive. My wife had a very early shuttle to the airport and the concierge was most attentive to make sure everything went well. The is a nice happy hour open bar and inclusive breakfast. The food and view from the restaurant is top notch. The rooms are a little small but were very clean and nicely appointed. There is access to an adjoining health club, too. We would definitely stay again.

If you're active duty or a veteran, I can't think of anywhere else to stay. It's clean, the rooms are big, it's quiet, FREE HAPPY HOUR and BREAKFAST! Great location just a few minutes walk from Union Square or Chinatown. We also walked to the Wharf (which is not for the faint-hearted). They also make parking easy about 40 yards from hotel and MMCH patrons get a break on the cost ($35.00 a day). Again, if you're a military member or veteran, this is definitely the place to stay. Highly recommend!

We stayed here as part of a trip around the US. Breakfast was really good. All the staff were very friendly. We had free use of laundry utilities and they even provided detergent free of charge.

Really good value and great location. Only downside was that the room wasn't that big, but it was big enough for us.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors get less road noise.

My husband, a Proud Marine and Vietnam Vet and I were looking forward to visiting this Hotel for "Happy Hour". He's active in several Veteran Groups and was anticipating the warm welcome and "Brotherhood" so often found among Marines. We spoke to several couples and were somewhat dismissed or snubbed, not a single "Semper Fi". We had a quick cocktail, looked around a bit and left.
