“A well located unique place to stay in San Francisco”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I found the hotel through Tripadvisor and had very good reviews and a reasonable price. Our experience was great. Located in Union Square, it has a curious atmosphere as it is really a Marines Club built after the world war. The service kind and careful about details, rooms clean and nice, breakfast included and a restaurant with a gorgeous view of SF downtown skyline from the 12th floor. Parking four doors away at a reduced price for guests. in summary a perfect place for our stay in SF.

I'm a former Marine who is perpetual member of this hotel. I and my wife always try to stay here when we're in S.F. First of all if you check prices in S.F. it's hard to find a decent hotel under $200.00. Secondly very few give you a great buffet breakfast and two hour happy hour with a pianist who plays requests. This hotel also has a wonderful steak restaurant on the 12th floor, along with a pool, access to a gym and a truly educational library. On Father's day several years ago we were at happy hour and met a former WW II vet and a former Ambassador, what an interesting and informative time that was. Parking is close and at $27.00 very reasonable for S.F. We love this hotel and have never had any problems. My only complaint is that it's booked up for our next trip which tells you something. Read some of the average comments and found them to be very nit picky. For those of you who think this hotel is just average, please stay somewhere else as it's leaves room for the rest of us. While in S.F. attend the Beach Blanket Babylon floor show, it's hilarious. Look on line for cheap places to eat and there are a lot of them. Park your car and walk, it's good exercise and use the trolley for the fun and experience.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms are fine but if you want more room get a king size room which has more windows. A...

I didn't know what to expect when I arrived into this hotel at first. It received rave reviews but didn't look like a top notch hotel. I checked at 11:30 at night with a reservation and the room I was in was clean but faced a brick wall ten feet away and the carpet and bathroom could use some updates. But beyond that, everything was great. The staff was kind and helpful, the location was great, near Union Square. The breakfast was fantastic with an amazing view of the city. The bed was comfortable. What the hotel might come up short with in perks, it makes up for with its drops of love.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't have a view of a brick wall.

Excellent central location, beautiful and well maintained historic building, staff were fantastic and very helpful. Breakfast was brillaint. The Marine's veteran's association adds an interesting extra side to the hotel. Will definitely be returning.

Parking garage three door up. Nice older establishment with a decent restaurant. We enjoyed both a dinner and a breakfast here. Good staff wanting to make your stay enjoyable. Nothing fancy but a good room at a reasonable price.

Definitely a little bit different than your typical business hotel. This place has photos of marines all over the walls and some uniforms and other Marine memorabilia.
The bedroom was nice and big with a good work desk, flat screen tv, and fridge.
The bed was very comfortable. I was disappointed in the flickery fluorescent light for the vanity area and the shower/toilet room was small and cramped. You have to go in and close the door to access the shower.
The free breakfast was good and the view was great from the restaurant. Staff is very nice. Overall I recommend it.

Room Tip: room 312's window looks at a brick wall and a fire escape. Not so nice if you want a view from y...

Hotel was located only 3 blocks from Union Square and convenient to public transportation. The breakfast each day was awesome. We had a King size room that was spacious and very clean.
We had an amazing view from our room on the 5th floor. Each night they have a complimentary Happy Hour from 4 - 6 PM and they make awesome Martinis.
