Stayed seven nights recently for a conference. Most convenient hotel to the city conference center. Great views from higher floors of either the harbor or the Gas Lamp area. Above average fitness center on the ground floor of the north tower was open 24hrs. Very nice pool area. Close walk to light rail/trolleys. Concierge lounge is on the 24th floor of the south tower and is very nice but a little crowded. It overlooks the water. Nice large shower and pillow top bed with good quality pillow options.

On-site meals and drink costs were high, parking was $26 for self park, more for valet. Not the place to stay if you are looking for a bargain, but extra nice location and property overall.

Only problems I had was a very loud Saturday night on-property night club that I could hear clearly on the 24th floor, and housekeeping repeatedly turning my room temp down to 68 degrees from where I had it set at 72.

Room Tip: High rooms will have the best views. North tower rooms have balconies, only south tower suites have...

My husband and I stayed at the Marriott Marquis while on our honeymoon in Sept 2012. We loved it! The hotel had a beautiful courtyard area with a pool, hot tub, fire pits, and a bar/restaurant. It was located right on the bay, our room had a beautiful view of the bridge and bay from the balcony. The hotel had access to the boardwalk and it was just a few minute walk to Seaport village which had many restaurants, coffee shops, and shops. The hotel was also conveniently located to the Gaslamp district which has delicious restaurants and bars. We really enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard with our coffee in the morning as well as around the fireplace in the evening with drinks.

The room was very comfortable and clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived early before our room was ready. The staff got us checked in and the bell hop offered to keep our luggage while we had lunch and a drink by the pool to wait for the room.

Room Tip: North tower rooms have a balcony and an excellent view of the bay and bridge (we had room 1729 overl...

Could not ask for a better location right on the water front with great pool and dining options in and around the hotel

Balcony rooms overlooking bay are fantastic EXCEPT whoever purchased the beds needs to visit a Westin whilst the bathroom for such a large bedroom was terribly laid out

Attended a conference held here and it was a great conference hotel. One did not have to walk forever to get to the sessions. Food at the conference was not the greatest, but what conference food is?
Rooms were comfortable and clean. Refrigerators, coffee maker, in the room. Comfortable beds and lots of pillows. Ask to stay in the North Tower, that is where they have rooms with decks to enjoy San Diego weather. It costs a bit more, but well worth it. The shampoo and conditioner were high quality and smelled wonderful. The grounds were beautiful with two pools, hot tub and a water fountain area for kids. I ate at the Tequila Bar and Grill...... fabulous street tacos. Very quick taxi to the airport. Within walking distance to Seaport Village, Gaslamp District, Petco Park and the convention center. Staff was wonderful. Don't scrimp, get a Bay View.... A train does pass in front of the hotel, blowing the whistle, but it stops around 11 pm

Room Tip: Get a Bay View and if you want a balcony ask for the North Tower.

I have stayed at several hotels in San Diego and this is the only one I have stayed in that I have bothered to review. The rooms are a little small I think but very clean. The views are spectacular and the staff is great. I would definitely choose this hotel again. LOVE the pool!!!!

Room Tip: Request a high floor if you aren't afraid of heights!

Stayed at the San Diego Marriot Marquis in April of this year, with 2 adults and 2 children. The hotel is excellently situated within convenient walking distance to the USS Midway Museum and also the San Diego Maritime Museum. The hotel has a excellent pool area, but can be crowded at times. The fitness centre at the hotel is also excellent. The rooms are quite large with a nice balcony and are well equipped. The only down side was that we had a room facing towards the downtown area, and every hour we could hear a train horn even late at night, and the train would blow there horns around 10 times which was quite disruptive late at night. Other then the train disruption it was a very nice stay.

This is an excellent Marriott with a great location. The staff is gracious and helpful. It's a very large hotel, and for its size, the do a good job. There are two towers. One has balconies plus good pool access, and the other has the concierge room.

Room Tip: If you can get access to the concierge room be sure you are in the same tower. It's a good plac...
