Reviewed October 5, 2009

I had stayed here on several occasions while on active duty. I was in town for a professional meeting but decided to take some extra days and bring my wife who had never actually seen the sights of San Francisco, only the airport. The hotel is near Union Square and convenient to Chinatown and the business district. The rooms are large and comfortable but do show a little age around the margins. Still a great bargain for the price. The staff is helpful and attentive. Breakfast buffet was included in the room price and extensive. We ate in the 12th floor restaurant one night. The menu is that of a relatively expensive steakhouse such as Ruth Chris's. The portions were large and delicious. Next time we return to SFO , we'll stay here again.

The MMC was a great place to stay on our recent business and leisure travel to San Francisco. It's an easy short walk to Union Square, and the Powell Street cable cars. The hotel is an older building, but nicely appointed and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The 12th floor breakfast (included) was on the caliber of a $25-30 buffet every morning per person! It had a beautiful presentation including breakfast meats, fruit, egg dishes, pastries, hot breakfast entrees, as well as all the usual continental fare. The service and quality were like an impeccable club. Dinner recommendations were great from the doorman. It felt like a very luxury experience for a VERY reasonable price by downtown San Francisco standards. Don't pass this one by! The Marine Memorial displays are tasteful and very interesting, but not overpowering--worth the history while staying in a great place.

My husband and I stayed at the Marines Memorial Hotel for the first time over Labor Day weekend. The location of the hotel was fantastic (close to shopping, walking distance to Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, FInancial District, etc.). The rooms were clean, but a little bit dated. Complimentary breakfast was offered every day, along with FREE happy hour between 4-6pm! For $80/night, what's not to love??

The Marine Memorial Club and Hotel is the best value for military and retirees in San Francisco. The rooms are clean and have all the amenities one would expect in a very good hotel. While the room rate is a bargain and likely far cheaper than any comparable hotel in the city, the complementary reception at night and breakfast make this a true bargain. The Leatherneck Steakhouse on the top floor is not to be missed. The hotel is located near most of the major sights in San Francisco and has a convenient parking garage near the hotel. A nice benefit to those who serve or have served!

This hotel is amazing. The staff, the location, the rooms. Perfect. Free Breakfast, and I mean a real breakfast. Free Happy Hour every night. And walking distance within everything. You would be a fool to stay any where else. This place could charge ten times what they are and people would stay here. Semper Fi!

Marines Memorial Club is one terrific place to stay.
What a VALUE !!
Years ago came here and have observed some remarkable changes and improvements. Most noticeable - is the staff – each and every hotel staffer treats the guests like “guests”. Refreshing concept in America today.
At each job bellman to waiter they are professional. It is always a pleasure to witness professionalism regardless of their job – they are professional.
The amenities and no nonsense charges are gratifying. Free laundry, internet, full buffet breakfast, and free happy hour cocktails, as well as no charges for local & 800 calls, comp newspapers et cetera make this on high value stay.

Firm mattresses, strong warm showers, good towels, cable TV and basics which all WORK – OOO RRAH - better than the last Ritz Carlton, where I stayed overseas.
Plus it is an honor to stay at a locale so rich in U S Marine history. A tour of the club ’s history and displays is a MUST. A moment in which to be proud – Semper Fidelis.
Well Done to the Marine Memorial Club’s Management Team !!
Keep up the good work from a convert.

What a great hotel, especially for the price of the room and parking in SF! Great location, EXCELLENT customer service- throughout the hotel, good food, comp breakfast and happy hour. The room we stayed in was a typical size SF hotel room and more importantly it was clean. The only complaint I have is that our room seemed to back up to the laundry room and the washer or dryer was going on kind of late one night. I will definitely stay here again!
