This is a Marriott. One has certain expectations when staying at a Marriott: you expect an above-average minimum of standards but understand it's not the Ritz. Within that framework, this hotel meets its mark perfectly. Every Marriott should be this perfect in meetings its standards.
The hotel is located a couple blocks off Union Square. It's seconds away from everything, but just far enough away to have room to walk on the sidewalk. Despite being 29 stories, it has more of a small hotel feel. It isn't one of those places with tons of people hanging out in the lobby.
Check-in was fast. All requests made on the reservation were honored. All elevators were working. (Seemed to be a problem someone else had mentioned in a review, so it's been fixed!) My room was on a higher floor, which cut down on the street noise problem that many hotels in this area suffer. The room was incredibly clean. Not to imply that other Marriotts are dirty, but this hotel is so clean that everything looks brand new.
The staff was attentive without being intrusive. Another poster mentioned the garage issue, but that's a SF issue more than a hotel issue. It would be a good idea to drive around to the Sutter side of the hotel, drop the bags with the doormen, then park. The parking is up the steep hill next door to the hotel.
