I've stayed here twice while attending AMA seminars on-site at the hotel and found it to be perfect for the business traveler. It's very convenient to the BART station to get to and from the airport and anything one could want is within walking distance so there is no need to rent a car. Room service for breakfast is perfect, and I've gotten lunch and snacks from the Mission Grille many times due to its convenience when I didn't have time to leave or didn't want to leave the hotel during breaks from my seminars. The concierge service is wonderful. I was departing on a late evening flight and wanted a massage before going to the airport. The lady working the concierge desk called four different spas until we found an open appointment just 30 minutes from when we called--the spa was a short cab ride away.

I will agree with other reviewers' comments about the hotel always being extremely busy, but it hasn't really affected me negatively. Even when the lobby bar is packed, I have found the music, dim lighting, and general atmosphere there to be very peaceful. I would not recommend The View bar on the 39th floor for its atmosphere in comparison to the lobby bar. No music, just loud chatter, yes a great view of the city, but it was so packed that we had to sit at the bar with our backs to the window, so we couldn't really enjoy it. All of the lounge areas with tables by the window of course were all taken.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly to book and ask for a quiet room

We had a great stay at this hotel, can't really complain at all. Check in was smooth and the man checking us in was super friendly. The room was clean and spacious, we appreciated the sofa seating area. The bed was huge and very comfortable and the bathroom was nice and clea as well. The location was absolutely fantastic, walking distance to all the shops, close to the busses and metro! I got this deal by booking a flight plus hotel on Expedia.

We liked that there was copy center on location. We did hang out at the lounge at the top floor and the views were great! Overall I'd recommend this hotel to anyone and I hope to stay again.

The hotel has an excellent location at a block of Union Square.
Rooms are comfortable. Must pay for wi fi.
Be careful in rooms facing the street as they suffer from underground or train noise frequently during the day.

Great downtown location, clean and comfortable rooms.

Close to Union Square shops, Powell street Cable car turnaround and MUNI/BART

Only one minor drawback: The lobby area is very busy as there are several entrances to the hotel.

Fresh off a trip staying at the Marquis, and I have to say, I enjoyed it. Service was consistent with Marriott quality, and rooms were nice. Be aware, this hotel is currently under renovation...I never heard anything, but there was a note on my desk about it.

Overall staff was excellent, including the maid. Rooms are average size, and the bathroom was spacious. My only real complaint is that the floor plan of the hotel is maze like, finding your room on the floor can be a little tricky the first time.

This was a two night stay at the Marriott Marquis for a business trip. I requested a quiet room location and was placed on the 23rd floor, which is considered a 'high-rise' location. The room was free from most road/room noise and was one of the recently refurbished rooms. Given the recent furnishing update, the room was clean and in great shape.

The registration desk was very helpful, taking effort to find a room without doors to an adjoining unit. This helped to reduce room-to-room noise.

The hotel location is very close to the Moscone Center but also within a short ten minute walk to Union Square. I didn't use a Marriott restaurant but did visit the lobby Starbucks.

Room Tip: Request a room that has been refurbished

My spouse was attending a conference at the Marriott Marquis SF so our rate was very reasonable for hotel in SF. The Marriott Marquis is conveniently located with the BART just a short walk away. The Powell/Market Cable Car terminal is also just about 2 blocks away. Best of all, the Apple Store is right across Market from the hotel. You can walk to the Financial District in about 15 minutes. There are numerous restaurants in the area. The desk clerks were very pleasant and helpful as were the personnel at the concierge desk. Our room was located on a high floor with a great view of the city. The room was quiet and clean. In-room wi-fi costs about $14/day but is very fast and reliable. There is valet parking available but it is pricey. SF is a city that you really can't have a car. We enjoyed our stay at the Marriott and look forward to visiting again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, the view is better.
