I spent one night mid-week for business travel. Location was great--within walking distance to the financial district (all downhill). My room was clean and in excellent condition. Service was excellent--at check-in I was offerred a complimentary bottle of chilled water and I was able to obtain a complimentary ride to the financial district the day I checked out (so I didn't have to wheel my suitcase down the hill). I will definitely use this hotel for business travel in the future.

The Stanford Court is a great location on Nob Hill, out of the hub bub of the financial district or Fisherman's Wharf. Our eight floor room had a great view of the narby Fairmont and harbor beyond. Rooms were very nice, although hall carpet needs to be replaced. Service in all areas of the hotel was excellent - from doormen and wait staff to registration personnel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an exterior view. Some rooms look onto an interior courtyard - they do have the...

This hotel has a perfect location with easy access to most places of interest in San Francisco, its yellow interior works well and the staff are exceptional but the hotel is pricey now and looking tired in some areas.The price of the Breakfast is extortionate and so is the Internet. I've stayed here twice before. I doubt if I will come back.

Hotel is beauiful, location is fantastic and the service is amazing! Kudo's to Edgar and John in the lounge for excellent service, and great conversation! Just what you would expect from a class A hotel! If you plan on visiting San Francisco you should consider staying at this Marriott Hotel. The rooms are lovely. The only downside to our stay was the restaurant for breakfast. It is very expensive and the service was not very good. Other than that, the stay was great.

This is my go-to hotel in SF and I'm here 3-4 times per year. I love that the staff recognizes me and in general are very kind and attentive. Views can be great so be sure to ask for one. You are very close to Union Square, but BEWARE if you have a hard time with walking. You are on Knob Hill so to get from Union Square (or anywhere in SF for that matter) you will have to climb a steep slope. Be prepared to take a taxi or cable car. The Powell Street cable car runs from Union Square and stops right in front of the hotel so that is a good option. I always get a good nights sleep here. The rooms are comfortable and at this point it feels like home away from home. Decor isn't the most hip or new, but it works. They have a pretty good bar and restaurant that are a little more trendy. They always seem to do a good busines. Be sure to hit Nob Hill Cafe on Taylor. Its about a three block walk with the first block uphill.

I spend about 150 days on the road each year and I am lucky enough to spend about a month at this Renaissance hotel. The service is stellar, the food is fantastic. They grow their own herbs. Several room choices to accommodate your needs. Great location atop of Nob Hill, you can walk to most tourist spots within 30 minutes. Whether it is Dwayne or Josh up front, Steve & Todd at the desk, Kirk or Ramon in Aurea, Ana up in the Concierge Lounge, you will always be treated with kindness! I hope the rest of the staff forgives me for not mentioning them.

I proposed to my girl this trip and they have done nothing but make us feel wonderful!

After you stay at the Stanford Court you will forever be spoiled. There you have been, and there you will long to return!

Room Tip: Corner Suites provide a great view! Every bed is wonderful though. Sadly there is no pool..

I have stayed at the Stanford Court several times when in San Francisco. It is in a great location, cablecar runs in front, walking distance to Chinatown and the Financial District.

The hotel has an updated lobby and good concierge lounge and fitness center. The service is efficient. The rooms have been nicely updated but vary in layout dramatically (from small to expansive). The rooms seem a little dated and small
