The Marker Hotel while not in the real centre of the CBD is so close it need not matter. The tram, train and bus routes are probably a good 10 - 15 min walk away but a pleasant enough walk. This certainly is a reasonable priced hotel with a reasonable amount of available services on site . The problem is... More

The Marker was a pleasant surprise. The people at reception were friendly and effective. I arrived a bit early and was offered a great place to work and relax while I waited for my room. I was called when my room became available - exactly at the time promised. The decor is funky without being overwhelming or cute. A really... More

I couldn't recommend this hotel enough. The room was lovely the staff were lovely. We stayed 26th August 2016 for 4 nights. We arrived at the hotel and checkin was simple and very quick. The guys on the desk were very friendly and couldn't be any more helpful. The room was lovely and spotless clean. The hotel is in a... More

Phenomenal service, excellent decor, ambiance and cleanliness. Located within walking distance of Union Square and multiple amazing art galleries. Front desk staff was very friendly and patient. The wine tasting in the evenings was lovely too. Beautiful lobby.

Stayed for four nights from Nov. 6 - 10. I give good marks to the hotel itself. It was clean, nicely appointed, but not outstanding in any way, and it is located on a seedier section of Geary two blocks west of Union Square. The king bed was comfortable, the hot water and water pressure for showers was excellent. The... More

This Marker has an excellent staff which is always our first impression of a hotel.

Clean and nicely decorated. Complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby from 5am onwards. I stayed here one night: kind room was nicely sized, nice bathroom. All in all, pretty good for the price in the middle of SF, just off of union square.
