Just ok

Very small room, even for a big American city. The bathroom was extremely small. The room door had a 1 inch gap at the bottom, so noise was always a problem. No fridge, only two towels, no IPOD dock, limited dinning options, no 24 hour room service. Other than all of that, the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Extra critical because of the $350+ / night price.. just rough around the edges.

Perfect Location, Small Rooms

Only a block from the main union square area but the rooms are too small and the view isn't the best.

Mariott Union Square-great location

The location was great! The staff was very nice and effecient. we were there to cheer family running in the SF Marathon. The sheets were soft but the sweat factor in the bed was way too high-(for both of us) so they may have been polyester. Except for that, the bed was comfortable.

Perfect Location

I took my wife to San Fran for here first time and wanted to stay in the center of everything. This was it! We were right in the center of Union Square. In very close walking distance were all of the shops, mall, restaurants, bars, clubs...Right outside the hotel was the route for the trolley car that were took to the Wharf and around SF. The room had a nice view of the city and the bay and it was a very comfortable king bed. There is a bar in the lobby of the hotel that is only open until 11, but they are very knowledgable bar staff and can mix a drink! Overall the stay was great and we pretty much just walked or took a short cab ride anywhere we needed to go. The only downside was parking. The hotel had vallet only and it was ~$47/day, but I found parking garage one block down for $37/day.

Try Honey Honey Cafe & Crepery for breakfast or brunch. The crepes are amazing as well as the other items on the menu.

5 Year Wedding Getaway

The hotel was perfect for us. The staff were very friendly, the hotel was clean and elegant. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel because we were busy sightseeing, but whenver we were there it was comfortable. There is no pool or hot tub, which my husband was disappointed about, but again, it was not that big of a deal. The only thing I might complain about (it wasn't a big deal to me, but it might be a big deal for some people) is that the sink in the bathroom and the vanity was very small. I guess the bathroom in general was pretty small. Overall, a great hotel!

Loved It

clean rooms, good location, super comfy bed. I only wish there was a refridgerator (since there's a space for it) and they had a complimentary breakfast buffet for guests in the morning.
