"Central location near Union Square"
We had originally planned to stay near Fishermans Wharf but friends advised staying near Union Square and they were right, a great location at the heart of things with no shortage of places to dine within easy walking distance and right on the Powell Hyde and Powell Mason cable car routes. Room was comfortable and well appointed although bathroom was smaller than expected and we were surprised not to have a safe in the room to lock up valuables.
Great place to stay. Stayed on the 15th of October 2014. Very pricy for one night ($400.00 plus). At that price one would think Wi-Fi would be free of charge, but no - 12.95 per day. Come on guys, is this really necessary. I stayed at much cheaper hotels than this and had free Wi-Fi. Why must you empty everyone's wallet' Besides this little peeve, everything else was great. Rooms are very nice and spacious, and very comfortable beds. I also dislike having the cleaning personnel leave envelopes on the bed (like begging for more money). Management should pay them a little more for their work, especially with the prices they charge for one night stay.
"Better than a basic hotel - but felt nickel'd & dime'd"
The hotel staff was great - friendly & helpful. The bar was ok (no draft beers) The rooms were modern & comfortable. But i guess what got me was poor wifi- aside from getting charged - every time i'd use either a new device (iPad vs computer vs smartphone) had to go thru what felt like the full log in process - might sound trial now - but got very annoying. The location is great - across from starbucks and down the street from SEARs - no not the hardware store - the diner that serves up a great breakfast...union square is a great area..
"Beware of Theft"
Someone broke into our room and stole my wallet and backpack. Hotel security kept saying that I lost these items and they considered them only "missing". They suggested that we look behind the curtains and under the beds. They refused to belief us and treated us like we were making this up when clearly it was theft. Even the housekeeping lady tried to tell us she thought she had seen someone coming out of our room, but management changed her story. I would expect that hotel management at a Marriot would treat their customers better and not try to lie and cover this up in order to keep their reputation. Very disappointed in being treated so poorly. WATCH OUT FOR YOUR BELONGINGS AT THIS HOTEL! Thieves in the area have found a way to by-pass hotel keys in order to gain access to rooms and management refused to acknowledge this.
Spent several nights here on business. Found the hotel to be a nice place to stay. It's far enough up the Powell St hill to be away from the intensity of the crowds closer to Union Sq and Market St. But it's close enough to easily walk to Union Sq and everything around it. My room had a nice bay window area with a couple of seats located there. The room felt spacious. My 14th fl view wasn't spectacular, but it was enjoyable to see the cable cars ride up and down Powell St. You could hear a lot of the noise of the city. Particularly annoying was the shrill whistle the doormen continuously use to summon taxis. The breakfast and bar staff were friendly and efficient. The dinner wait staff were less so. I would stay here again, though there are many, many hotels in the area that would be suitable as well.
