Weekend get away

very helpful and friendly staff. Close to museums, and great part of the city. The only negatives were crummy towels, and slow Internet. But, the positive is that computer in lobby and Internet were free ( as opposed to the Marriott Marquis ). If you need two beds, they were queen size and room was nice size. Way less crowded, less touristy

Nice, basic, family friendly

standard marriot quality - close to downtown/financial district, a bit of a hike from North Beach or Haight/Asbury and nightlife.

Great place to stay and go to see the SF

We came to go to the Giants game. We were able to check-in early and walk to the ballpark(about 1 mile away). Nice big clean quiet rooms.

Close to the Stadium

Valet parking was really expensive, but we were only able to save a couple dollars paying for street parking. The hotel was very clean and nice looking. We were checked in quickly even though it seemed everyone was there at the same time. Our room was very clean. The bed was firm but comfortable as where the pillows. There was also a desk and a nice sofa. That bathroom was clean. The shower was super clean and the shower head was very nice with good pressure. The hotel is 15 minute walk from AT&T Park and a great restaurant Gordon Birsch.

Decent location

We went to SF for New Years fireworks so we didn't spend much time in the hotel. Upsides are that it is close to nice places to visit like SFMOMA. The wired internet was free for a day, there is no wireless, but there is a Starbucks downstairs that has wifi.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you don't need in/out privileges of hotel parking, don't park there. Instead go to the Moscone Center parking garage on 3rd street. It's only $24 for 24 hours vs. $44 for the hotel.
