The Marines’ Memorial Club is in a great Union Square location – right on the corner of Sutter & Mason. This place is a living museum with military souvenirs, displays, memorials, and other items on every floor. There is much to interest anyone.
Our room was inexpensive and nicely appointed with a TV, safe, desk, coffee maker, and small refrigerator. The bathroom was big and had plenty of fine supplies. The shower’s water pressure was okay, although not great. There is both an ice and filtered water dispenser on every floor. This club has been around since 1946, but it looks and feels up-to-date (with the exception of not having enough conveniently placed outlets in the room for recharging our numerous electronic devices).
Their breakfast buffet is served in the top (12th) floor restaurant that has a view (when it’s not fog-bound!) of downtown San Francisco. Breakfast is very good, and consists of hot trays of fresh scrambled eggs, a breakfast meat, potatoes, and other items that vary each day (such as eggs with spinach, eggs with salsa, blintzes). Other hot items are oatmeal, and what is labeled “SOS”: biscuits & gravy. There are plenty of other items: breads, cereals, fruit, yogurt, and cottage cheese. The staff is friendly and will serve you juice (coffee is already on the table).
I whole-heartedly recommend it!
