(Note: Hotel is actually the Marriott Marquis)

This is one of those fancy-schmanzy outfits I get to stay at when business picks up the tab. This Marriott is just steps from the Powell Street Muni/Bart station and close to Union Square, Moscone Center, Yerba Buena Gardens and the Museum of Modern Art - great location. It's a 39-floor high-rise with all the goodies you'd expect from a conference-quality hotel: decent-sized rooms, upscale linens, flat screen TVs, pool, fitness center, etc. There is also an upscale restaurant (didn't eat at), lobby lounge, sky lounge, Starbucks and a casual grill on site. All-in-all, a nice place.

Potential downsides? Parking rates are ridiculous ($55 per day ramp or $32 per day offsite), wired-for-business service is $15 a day, and drinks in the lounges don't come cheap. Rover isn't allowed either. Get around some of this by using free wireless in the lobby lounge, boarding the dog at home, nixing a car (don't need one in SF anyway) and doing your tippling elsewhere.

Because business rates are almost never a bargain (we had conference rates) I know our room was well over $200 a night but I see Tripadvisor reviewers who snagged them for as low as $99 - $109: a steal for SF so if you can get it for anywhere close to that, jump on it.

Center of Everything in SOMA!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2007

Spectacular Views of the San Francisco Skyline and Beyond!

ok, ok I admit that I am Biased since this is my favorite hotel in the SOMA area and the whole of the Bay Area, plus, because of The View Lounge which for me is better than the Top of the Mark (see my View lounge and top of the mark tips). the Marriott is one of the largest buildings in the city, making it a popular stop for convention-goers to Moscone Center which is just beside it and those looking for a room with a view (again I'm biased), that only problem is that rooms cost $ 380 or more a day here (plus taxes) if you are not a california native (in which they give you 25% off) and they also have off season specials like 3 night specials where the price can drop up to just $ 240 plus tax a night.

Unique Quality: Beside my favorite The View Lounge, Mariott claims to have 1,498 luxurious guest rooms, including 136 distinct suites and 100,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and banquet space, including 52 meeting rooms and the most unbeatable part is that it is just across Moscone Center for Convention Goers and within Walking Distance of Westfield Center, Bloomingdales, Macy's, Powell Street Cable Car, Union Square, Metreon, Crocker Galleria, Jollibee and a Lot More!

Directions: 55 4th St, San Francisco, CA 94103

5 Star Hotel in Great Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2007

A very nice hotel. Huge number of rooms and yet it didn't feel overwhelmingly big. The lobby got pretty crowded around 5pm as people gathered to plan their evenings.

Rooms were very nice with goose down duvets, many pillows and a flat screen plasma HDTV (whatever that means). I was only on the 5th floor so my view was the side of the church next door.

The View, the hotel's lounge on the 34th floor, is well worth a visit for the views. The architecture reminded me of Gotham City with large gothic windows.

Never ate a meal in the hotel (too many choices nearby) but I heard breakfast was very expensive.

Directions: Takes up most of the block between Market and Mission on Fourth St. Entry and valet parking on 4th street.

Slowly the Marriott converts to an old Lady...and she would need some Botox shoots.
I stay there regularly since the early 90th's, and not to much changed.
There are no major complaints, just little glitches.

If you have to do business on Market street, or at Moscone, then the location is convenient.

Make sure to enjoy the spectacular view from the bar on the 39th floor.

Directions: Near Market street, Moscone center and Union square

This is a good location if you need to be near Moscone Ctr or South of Market - otherwise it is a long way from SF night life and a rather long walk from Union Square (but do-able). And from Union Sqr. you can catch a street car to Fishermans Warf, via North Beach, where you can stop for great food along the way. You will probably end up cabbing it everywhere after dark anyway - but it all comes down to location and what you are in SF to do (business or be a tourist.)

The rooms are typical Marriott - clean and well appointed.

Directions: South of Market (SOMA)

This hotel offers some very large rooms and has one of the best hotel gyms I've ever been to. The jazz club on the top is great as well with some cool city views. It might be too far from the bay for some tourists but for business, especially if you are at a trade show, the location is great. It also has a few good bars right outside of it, so that's a plus too.

Stayed at the downtown...

by written on August 24, 2002

Stayed at the downtown Marriott on the 31st floor. Had a corner room that overlooked downtown and the east Bay.

Unique Quality: Wonderful view from the lounge located on the upper level; however, seating is limited. The Garden Terrace restaurant, located on the 2nd floor, has wonderful food and a diverse menu.

Directions: Located at 4th Street and Market - only steps away from Union Square, the trolley station, a few blocks from Chinatown, and nearby many of the South Market (SOMA) nightclubs.
