We booked 2 nights at the Marriott Union Square to meet friends for a weekend using Marriott Points. As a Platinum member, I am used to how Marriotts are so my expectations are grounded.
We arrived via Car on a Friday afternoon. The Valet man showed up quickly and we advised I was just performing a drop of my bags before dropping the car off. He told me to lift my trunk to avoid any of the bus cameras which might send me a ticket (helpful tip). He allowed me to check in and drop my bags for no charge. The typical valet charge is ~$60.
Check in was quick and smooth. The clerk took my credit card and welcomed me. She offered free continental breakfast or 1,500 per day as the lounge was closed. I took the breakfast. Overall, the staff was excellent during our stay.
I was given a 29th floor room in a corner facing the Coit Tower. The view was spectacular and featured a King Bed with a small chair and a small bathroom with a tub/shower combo. Decor was a typical Marriott. The room itself was REAL small. Smaller than the room at the JW I had in recent times but in the end it served its purpose. The rooms have a closet with an iron and a small safe (not large enough for a laptop ) and worked fine. Location wise, we found the hotel in an ideal location to visit San Francisco and Union Square.
For breakfast, they offer a basic continental breakfast in lieu of the lounge if you are a Gold/Platinum guest. It consisted of bagels, bread, oatmeal & other basic items. If you wanted eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit or yogurt, then you can pay an extra $6 which I didn't find unreasonable. Sears Fine Foods is around the corner and offers a competitively priced breakfast as another option if you are stuck paying full price for the breakfast at the hotel
High speed wireless internet is offered at $12.95 a day (unless you get a business wired rate) and was scorching fast.
Checkout was quick and nothing was wrong.
I would certainly return to this hotel but would hope i get a bigger room next time.
