"A great place to stay in downtown San Francisco"
I stayed here for a meeting in May (the meeting was in the same hotel, so I figured it made sense). It's only a block or so from the Powell St. BART Station, so it's convenient to get there from the airport. The room itself was nice and clean. Beds were comfy, room was good sized, had a nice work desk and small fridge. The fitness center was well stocked with cardio machines and weight-lifting equipment. The rooftop bar offers a great view, but it can get crowded. Rooms aren't cheap, but that's probably true with most hotels in the same area. I should point out that the average "sleep quality" review is probably more due to change in time zone and other factors affecting my sleep than the room itself. The hotel itself is pretty close to a lot of things even just by walking, there are several museums and Yerba Buena Gardens within a couple of blocks, and places like the Ferry Building, the Embarcadaro, AT&T Park and Chinatown are maybe a 30-minute walk at most.
"Treated like royalty"
The room was large and palatial. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bell captains were alert and ready to serve. The concierge staff went above and beyond to help me find my way around the city. The only problem I had (and it was not the fault of the hotel or it's staff) was that the city closed off a 50 block area of SOMA (South of Market) for a race that closed off the streets from 6 to 11 AM on Sunday, creating a situation that would keep most of San Francisco travelers away from the Interstate and the airport during that time. Since my next destination was 400 miles to the east, I couldn't wait until after 11:00 so had to be out of town by 6 AM. The concierge did her best to help by calling the city and the police department to ask if there was a way to get through the police block and were told that it couldn't be done,. During my stay, I was able to walk through most of downtown San Francisco as the hotel was only a few blocks from the cable car and the sight-seeing double decker, All in all, it was a most pleasant stay and The View was worth the price of the hotel. The wait staff on the 39th floor were an absolute delight.
"My heart in San Francisco"
In one of the most convenient locations on Mission and 4th, near conventions, shopping and eating, the Marriott Marquis cannot be beat. The service is excellent, with friendly and efficient staff. Concierge level has the M Club, which has breakfast, snacks, drinks, dinner, and dessert. They call the evening food "hors d'oeuvres", but we called it dinner. The staff in the M Club were not only fast and efficient, they were very friendly and made conversation with many guests to make them feel comfortable. The rooms are clean and many have excellent views. We went out to breakfast early, and when we came back, the room was already made up. Service is what this hotel is known for, and it was certainly top notch. The bell staff did more than just deliver luggage. They couldn't do enough for us. Now that we are at home, we miss the hotel, so we will have to take another trip to San Francisco and stay at the Marquis, of course!
"Overall good experience."
This hotel is very nice and in a great location. The man that checked us in was fantastic and upgraded us to a higher room with a view due to my Marriott status. The lobby and common areas are very nice and the view from the lounge upstairs is amazing!
"Great location and large room."
My husband, 14 year old daughter stayed here on Spring Break. We chose this hotel because of the large room size. We had a King. room w/ living area that accommodated the pull away bed for my daughter. The room was clean. The beds not very comfortable. Pretty mushy and we could hear the people next door. The lobby is a zoo, but once you get away from everyone checking in, it is tolerable. The hotel does not offer room service, but has a nice little market on the first floor that offers snacks, drinks, salads, desserts, coffee and some made to order breakfast and dinner items. My daughter and I ordered a pizza from there and it was delicious. They offer some tables and chairs right outside the market, if you don't wan to eat in your room. The location was very nice. Right across the street from The Container Store and around the corner from Target. There is a really good Italian restraunt right across the street if you get hungry. There is also a yummy burger place called Super Duper burger a short walk away. All the shops are a short walk away along w/ the trolley pick up on Powell. We waited about 45 min. for the trolley, but it was worth it and so fun!
