Stayed for just one night but wish it was longer. This is an outstanding hotel. The internal structure of the hotel is massive and highly impressive. Nice lobby bar with a great vibe for a few drinks. Check in was very friendly as well as being quick and no problems getting an early check in a high level room after... More

The Marriott is located 1 block from Union Square, 2 blocks from Powell to catch the cable car and 3 blocks from China Town. Perfect location. Rooms are spacious; beds very comfortable. Our stay included the breakfast buffet which was great. Sangria and infused water were offered at check in. We had a corner room, which on Friday night was... More

Rooms were clean, but small & a bit crowded, but comfortable. Staff was pleasant, helpful, & friendly. The Union Square area is a great place to stay as it is very convenient to the upscale San Francisco shopping, good restaurants, and easy to commute from to other areas. The JW maintains the predictable Marriott standards. Good Choice!

This hotel is very clean, friendly and offers better than average amenities. Staff was accommodating and always present. The area is fun with many options for shopping, dining (casual and fine) and sight-seeing.

I was there for business and had appointments around the bay area. Easy to get just about every where. Just off the square a bite. Plenty of great eating spots, great for morning walks. Higher floors has great views of the city and the bay. Not for the budget minded, but good value. Enjoy the city and the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here to tour SF before heading up to wine country. We liked the location as it is not in the heart of the busy tourist areas. We were able to walk (up and down the exhausting hills) or Uber everywhere we wanted to go. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was a... More

A quiet, serene oasis in the midst of a bustling city. Tossed a coin between the Marquis and JW and serendipitously chose the JW over the Marquis. It turned out to be a good choice, since we were seeking peace and quiet, and later learned that the Marquis was hosting a Comic Con event. The JW felt more boutique, the... More

If you are looking for an upscale hotel in San Francisco at a reasonable rate, then this is the place. We stayed 2 nights, the room was larger than expected. Only thing they could change is the coffeemaker.

The JW at union square offers great location for the downtown sf stay. The property is a bit old but the standards and facilities are all up to standards. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. They respond quickly to your small requests. One thing we really want to share with other future customers is that they charge more than... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott in San Francisco for 4 nights, and it was the nicest hotel any of us had ever stayed in. The rooms were great, the food was great, the location was great, the only thing missing was a pool. The staff was very accommodating, and helpful. They gave us great restaurant recommendations and were able... More
