I recall that the winter season at the Bay Area is usually quite mild – I was wrong this time. My family and I got to the hotel in the midst of a heavy downpour and near-freezing weather. Enough said that the first thing we want is a nice comfortable room and a hot bath. The staff got everything arranged in no time, and threw in free Internet as a bonus as well.
The location of the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco is near-perfect in my opinion. There are bus stops and a BART station within walking station, as well as a Ross store on the same block (yes, we needed to resupply our winter clothing, having made a bad judgment on the weather conditions).
Compared to the other US hotels I’ve stayed in, the room at the Marriott Marquis SF is a lot smaller; however, I think it’s the perfect size – big enough for luggage space and leg space while still giving the warm, cozy feeling. The sheets and pillows were nice and clean, providing a great sleeping environment for me. A pity that the room I stayed at had windows facing the indoor lobby so I wasn’t able to check outdoor weather by looking out.
Another good thing about the hotel is that a bunch of stores and restaurants were only a short walk away, so my elderly in-laws were able to enjoy shopping and dining fun without the need of transportation. It’s quite convenient to get all the shopping and souvenir-buying done while still having ample time to pack your luggage.
I also had a chance to visit the indoor swimming pool, which is located on the same floor as my room. Since I went in near closing time, I almost had the whole pool to myself. The only complaint I have was the need to climb the stairs to the fitness room counter to get towels.
In conclusion, I recommend this hotel for its great location and cozy room (though I really wish the pool could have longer hours).
