We had a room with two double beds to cater for two adults and one child. Neat and clean rooms, comfortable beds and coffee machine inside the room.  The view was blocked by tall and close buildings around.  I did not find a soap bar and a mini fridge on arrival so had to request for them. During our 3... More

Great location right around the corner from Union Square! Great shopping and good restaurants also within walking distance. Hallways are nice and bright, as are the rooms. Bathroom lighting great for putting on makeup though the bathroom is rather small. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff in lobby bar and on site restaurant very accommodating. I would definitely consider staying... More

I had back to back stays at this hotel while in San Francisco for work. The rooms are nice and large, with a bay window seating area. The beds are Marriott comfortable. The 2 odd things were the size of the bathroom sink and the closet. Both were absurdly small. I could not wash my hands in the sink without... More

This hotel is ideally located in the Union Square area, making several must see destinations within easy walking distance. Also conveniently located near several good restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores. The great friendly service I've come to expect from all Marriotts more than met my expectations at this property. The rooms are not over the top in their design,... More

Arrived at the hotel - Front desk was nice an curtious. Hotel location was great - smack right in the middle of everything downtown. The room was very nice with a great view. Had breakfast at the lounge on floor 28 and again service and food were very good and the view was excellent. Overall a great experience.

Firstly, to my confusion ,there are 2 Marriotts at Union Square. This is the not so glamorous one. Summary - no problem, pleasant enough stay, but i wouldn't say luxurious. staff ok, rooms ok, food ok, pricing a little expensive for what it is, but San Fran is expensive, so it is ok compared to other places. Location, great. Staff:... More

Service was excellent, room nicely appointed and nice size The best thing about this hotel is the location. Steps away from great shopping, restaurants and and Chinatown and little Italy. Room rate was reasonable but the in hotel restaurant was... More

Stayed there for a conference. Room was very nice and in great shape. Food at the lobby restaurant was superb (I went for the salmon). Walking distance to shopping, BART and other means of public transportation

The room was average and had a chipped tub. Bathroom was a good size but looked used hard. The front desk help was not particularly helpful//friendly. Certainly not like I have experienced in other Marriott stays. For over 300 dollars a night, and as a gold member, I would choose a different Marriott in San Fran.

We stayed at this Marriott last month (October 19 to 23) and were very pleased with our room as well as the location. The room was new and clean, the lobby was sleek and had an inviting vibe (especially during happy hour), and thee was plenty of shopping as well as plenty of public transport nearby.
