“Great Place to stay!”
Reviewed September 26, 2005

The only problem we had was we had reserved a room with 2 double beds and when we checked in were given a queen bed (even though we were early). Eventually we were put into a king size bed and the room was very nice.
The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was very clean and well maintained. The complimentary breakfast was also superb even with excellent fresh fruit! At a rate of $89 a night for members (I guess the rate went up), I would definitely recommend the place and would surely stay there again!

Our family's trip to San Francisco included a 3 night stay at the Marines' Memorial Club on Sutter Street in downtown San Francisco. The location was fantastic with accessibility to public transportation and within walking distance to much of this beautiful city. The hotel however has seen better days. Small rooms being irrelevant (most are small in this area), the main problem throughout the hotel was a housekeeping issue. No attempt had been made in months to wipe baseboards or clean corners. Our bathroom sink was never wiped up the whole time we were there except by us. Trash was piled up and cobwebs were present everywhere around the hotel. This was sad as it was a nice older hotel which just needed a good housekeeper. Hopefully someone soon will notice and give it a little TLC. I will say that the complimentary breakfast was quite nice with a large variety of choices.

This hotel is on the corner of Sutter and Mason--just 1 block from Union Square. It is located perfectly for walking to Union Square, North Beach and China Town. Plus a cable car stop is on the corner of the hotel. The hotel is open to the public, but it to members of the Marines. Anyone who has served in any branch of the military is able to become a member. This is a big deal since non-members pay up to $189 a night and members pay $69/night. This is a medium size hotel with a modern fitness center and pool in the basement. The 12th floor restaurant serves compimentary hot breakfast (made to order omlets on the weekends). From 4 pm to 6 pm the 12 floor bar serves complimentary drinks. My 4 night stay was perfect. The room/professional staff were excellent.
