“What a great hotel!”
Reviewed February 6, 2011

During Christmas and New Years I traveled with my family to Las Vegas, LA and San Francisco. The Marriott Marquis was my favorite hotel. Really good and clean rooms. The bed is huge and comfortable. The bathroom is big with an excellent shower. Nice staff and concierge services.
The only thing that I do not recommend is to have breakfast in the hotel. The food is great but very expensive. I do not think is worth it.
Overall, an amazing experience. You should stay at the hotel without any worries.

The hotel was pretty much what you would expect from Marriott - clean rooms and convenient location. This is a very large convention hotel with good services. The prices are high but probably not out of line for San Francisco. My main gripe with Marriott is the $15/day fee they charge for internet access. Almost all other chains provide Wifi for free. Come on Marriott, get with the rest of the world.

The rooms were very nice, beds very comfortable, and the bathroom updated and spacious. It is in a great location for walking to shopping, cable cars and the bus stops. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

There are two things lacking in this hotel; a coffeepot in the guest room - extremely inconvenient to have to get dressed and wait in a long line to purchase a cup of coffee every morning in the lobby. Another is lack of free wireless internet in the rooms, considering this hotel is a conference center. Also had trouble accessing the internet in the public areas.

Nice hotel. Great location, easy access to all parts of downtown and mass transit. Easy to walk to the ball field where the Giants play, it took about 10-15 mins to walk.

The sports pub attached to the bottom of the hotel had great beer and quick eats. It was priced good too (as good as prices can get in San Francisco).

Room was very roomy & comfortable. The bed and bedding were superb. Had a decent view from the room as well.

Lots of restaurants and shopping very close to the hotel.

We arrived on Christmas eve 2010 - the bell hop was very friendly and informative about the area. After having the breakfast buffet the first morning - it was so good that it would have been difficult to top the breakfast choices and service. So that's where we had breakfast every day of our stay.
We were given the choice to have a room on a higer floor (so we could enjoy the view) and what a spectacular view!. We've stayed in very nice hotels and this hotel was all that and more - excellent housekeeping, exceptional service and the most comfortable bed which only made us want to return early every day. Everything we wanted to visit was within a short walking distance or only a short taxi ride. We were absolutely staying in the heart of the city!
We lived in San Francisco in 1969 and were on a limited budget but have such wonderful memories of our time spent there. We always dreamed of the day when we could return to this fine city and stay in one of its nicest places. I think we chose well. Now we've added Christmas memories and we know exactly where we will stay on the next visit.

Check-in was quick and easy. All my requests were seen to. Staff was very friendly. Starbucks onsite was great to have. Lots of places to sit and review notes before start of your day. The very nice lobby ramps up your expectation for an equally nice room...but that's just not the case. With the exception of the TV and beds (most important I know) the rooms need to be gutted and updated. Room was not the cleanest either. The high speed internet is not high speed and a rip off at $14.95 a day. Rooms were very quiet which important to me. I heard no one. All in all I won't stay here again...there are many more nicer hotels in downtown for the same or better price.
