"Great location, good breakfast"
Once again we arrive at a Marriott for the weekend only to be told the Club/Lounge/whatever is closed at the weekend. At least this one offered us a continental breakfast in the restaurant. Breakfast was above average! The hotel bar was also excellent, and happy hour (M-F) was also reasonable. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to Union Square, to the Market St Westfield and to China Town. We got upgraded to a junior suite, which was nice, but was close to the ice-machine so we had idiots there shouting and carrying on at 3am. So... The room had none of the usual instructions about anything, only had 2 tiny sheets of writing paper, and no teabags. Very cheap feeling. We were not told anything about whether the wifi was free or we had to pay. Overall the more I stay at Marriotts the less impressed I am in general, but the location of this one made up for the rest.
"At the Bottom of a Hill, On the Top of Our List!"
My husband and I stayed one night at the San Francisco Marriott Union Square during our whirlwind tour of California. We flew into San Francisco International and rented a car. After a little detour to the Golden Gate Bridge and a dizzying drive down Lombard Street, we arrived at the hotel with very little issues. It truly is centrally located; so much so that we weren't able to pull our car to the curb the first time because there was a lot of traffic. No big deal, we just drove around the block and were greeted by a very friendly valet who quickly removed our bags from our rental car and provided us with our valet ticket. Like a true gentleman, he offered to carry my bag for me. Our check-in around 2 PM was very quick and we were given a complimentary upgrade to a room on a higher floor with a view of the ocean, not to mention an absolutely breathtaking view of the city. After dropping off our bag, we caught the Mason-Powell trolley, which stops directly across the street from the hotel. A one-way trip is $7, and while I would really love to rave and state that it was the best way to get around the city, we definitely did not get the experience that we had hoped for. It was so crowded that we had to squish into the enclosed area of the trolley (since the coveted "hanging off the pole" positions were all taken), then we had to wait almost 10 minutes in the middle of the street for a shift change of the driver and conductor ('). Once the shift change occurred, we traveled about 3 blocks before the driver hit the emergency break and we were all asked to vacate the trolley and walk. Luckily, we were uphill from the water so we had an easy walk down to the pier to explore, but the bottom line is that I wouldn't recommend that trolley. Having that said, we walked all over the waterfront from Ghirardelli Square to Fisherman's Wharf and back to the hotel (mostly uphill). It was quite the work-out that I wouldn't recommend unless you are physically fit, but we got to see a lot of Chinatown before arriving back at the hotel. I would say that the total distance was maybe 2 miles, which in a large city center, is an excellent location! We asked the concierge for a dinner recommendation and she highly recommended John's Grill, which was a much shorter walking distance and mostly downhill. It was an excellent recommendation as it had a great atmosphere, being built in 1901, and the seafood was spectacular! On our walk back to the hotel, we were able to stop in a few bars that weren't nearly as crowded as the trolley earlier in the day, and we also enjoyed some people watching in Union Square. We were exhausted upon our return to the hotel and sunk into the mostly wonderfully comfortable bed, sleeping incredibly soundly for the entire night. The following morning, we walked across the street to Sears Fine Foods for breakfast and enjoyed some Swedish pancakes before hitting the road to our next destination. Had we stayed around town, we certainly could have easily walked to some more sites for exploration, people watching, eating/drinking, and shopping as so much was in the general vicinity of the hotel. We actually stopped at a Walgreens right next to Sears Fine Foods and found souvenirs on clearance, walking away with two hoodies, a magnet, and some postcards for about $30. We loved how friendly everyone at the hotel was. Whether we were walking in, walking around, checking out the art work, or just browsing a menu at the bar, there were always staff members greeting us and striking up a conversation. I had every door held for me, as well as every elevator door, and staff members were always engaging and entertaining regardless of their position at the hotel. I find that so hard to find these days and it was definitely my favorite part of the hotel. Fair warning, San Francisco is not a cheap city and our one night stay (including valet parking) cost us a little over $400. But, we loved the location (especially to amazing restaurants), the space in the room, the view, and especially the staff. We will definitely stay here again upon our return to San Francisco!
"Thank you for improving my stay! "
Thank you to Robert at the front desk and the other staff for improving my stay. I checked in last night and my room was nice but VERY noisy and I'm both pregnant and a light sleeper. I didn't sleep much. I told them this morning and they kindly moved me to a higher floor. I know they can't always make those changes but I greatly appreciate it! Overall hotel is very nice and the location is outstanding! Rooms are also very clean and the beds are comfortable. Almost everything is within walking distance. Highly recommend this hotel.
"Location is the Key"
The Marriot Union Square is a good hotel without being great. Some of the negatives that I found were: - No safe in the room - No fridge in the room - No bottled water in the room -No free wi-fi I think these are basics you would expect in any reasonable hotel room and this is not a cheap hotel. Balanced against this are: -Friendly check in, reception and concierge - Great location- Union Square is in the middle of everything and shopping is great -Really good gym that was well used but really well appointed. I have to admit though, with all those great hills just outside the door, I found it funny that all the treadmills were full - get out and enjoy the city! - Good bar downstairs I feel like the Marriott needs to work out if it is a high end or a mid-low end hotel. I just don’t think, with the things it doesn’t have, I would return despite the positives.
"Rude and Racist!!!!!!"
My wife and I are big patrons of Marriott hotels because of the excellent service we always receive when we stay at their hotels. We even had our wedding reception in a Marriott hotel in our country early this year. However, we had a very bad experience when we stayed here at Marriott Union Square. We had a "family and friends discount" from a good friend who is a Marriott employee so during check-in we were told that we can send them the discount form thru email or fax. Then out of nowhere a front desk staff named JEFF (who was not even the one attending to us) started screaming and pointing at me and my PREGNANT wife that we should give them the original form and was screaming at us asking where the original form is. Before he meddled, he was attending to two caucasian guests and he was very friendly and accommodating, even joking around and laughing with them. But when he started talking to us (we are Asians) he raised his voice, humiliating me and my wife in front of the front desk staff and other guests, telling us very rudely to get away from the front desk and wait until he calls us again. We felt so discriminated. Why did he need to humiliate us in front of the whole lobby for a piece of paper, when he could have just told us in a nice way what he wants. When he called us again, I just told him to just charge us for the full amount of the room so we can get out of there. We were on a hurry so i talked to his supervisor after getting back to the hotel a few a hours later. He apologized to us and gave me and my PREGNANT wife a bottle of wine for the inconvenience. Thank you very much Marriott Union Square for your racist and insensitive service. Next time you check in this hotel, be sure to be white and look rich.
