This hotel made my trip a pretty cool experience. You know when you are staying in a good hotel automatically makes your stay 100x better . From the hotel to our room being really clean to the whole staff being amazing everyone was so nice and friendly. Nessa, Blanca & Mitch. From the rest of the Valet parking being so nice but didn't get the rest of their names. Truly nice hotel with excellent staff. When I come to San Francisco I will forsure stay at The Marker no hesitation.

We had a great time staying at the Marker. Its location is perfect for exploring San Francisco. Transportation is easy to reach and the staff is very courteous. The hotel itself is beautiful. We loved the very cosy lobby with fireplaces where we can relax and even catch up with work when needed.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Walking distance to train station. Hotel staff so helpful we asked for a kettle in the room and they brought us one. The reusable water bottles were a great touch. Reception staff were lovely and really helpful. Went into bar and restaurant attached to the hotel for a drink but never ate there so can't comment on the food although what i saw looked good. Would definitely stay at this hotel again it was the perfect base to explore the city.

First of all, I feel very comfortable at The Marker San Francisco Hotel as we are at home. The staff at the front desk and housekeeping were very polite and helpful. The hotel has a perfect location. Very close to Union Square and a safe place. I had a good sleep because bed and pillows were so comfortable. The bathroom was clean, and hot water was ok. The elevators smell very good. It was a great pleasure for me to drink my tea near the fireplace in the early morning. Tea and Coffee are complimentary. Music is great in the lobby, especially it felt nice to wake up to a classic American day with Frank Sinatra in the lobby. Wi-fi was pretty good. When I come to SF, I will stay in The Marker San Francisco again.

Traditional hotel near Union Square in San Francisco. On the plus side, the hotel is well located. Unfortunately, some of the rooms in the hotel are noisy and when we asked to change rooms we got a less than gracious response from the desk clerk. He reluctantly agreed to move us as if he was doing us a massive favour. Not what you would expect from hotel staff. The staff in the restaurant are also very unhelpful and don't give a good impression of themselves. When I asked for mayonnaise I got told in no uncertain terms that they didn't have it. Again not what you would expect in a hotel restaurant. It seems that the staff could do with some extra training in how to treat their guests. In addition, the hotel tried to overcharge us twice by attempting to deduct large sums of money from my wife's credit card. When we complained they said it was a mistake. Once is a mistake in my opinion not twice. Overall a very poor place to stay and not one we could recommend or would ever return to.

I just stayed at The Marker hotel and all of your staff was great, but Blanca and Nessa the Reception Team had the biggest smile every time I saw them making me feel so welcome and I just had to say thank you as it made me feel real good. The hotel looked really good, bed was comfortable, great bottle of free water in the room and the hotel is just one block away from a wonderful 24 hours diner. Plus the hotel is next to the theatres, so easy access to the plays. Speaking of good, you folks make really good coffee in the morning too. Im a travel agent so I will work hard to sell your hotel!
