Always a great place to stay in San Francisco, with parking included! Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is friendly. We've been lucky enough to stay in rooms with views and some without. Needless to say, view room the preference. Request a room OFF of Lombard Street, which is noisy. The neighborhood is wonderful to walk around and you feel...

I chose not to heed the reviews on TripAdvisor and boy did I regret it!! It is impossible to sleep in any of the rooms that face Lombard. Even with ear plugs and a sleep machine I did not sleep the entire time we stayed here. Requested a room change but the desk said they were booked and couldn't change...

PROS: The hotel is in a good area. Lot's of restaurants, shopping, etc. The staff was friendly. The room was clean (a couple of carpet stains) and was comfortable. CONS: Our room faced Lombard street which is busy. And the noise was loud. I checked twice thinking a window was open. A room on the back side is probably OK,...

We loved the decor, the spacious room, the helpful staff, the good neighbourhood. Fantastic restaurants are literally a couple of doors down the street (we loved Saiwalks Vietnamese restaurant), there's a Walgreens supermarket 5 mins walk away. The Marina is a lovely area. There's a bus stop a couple of blocks away if you need it, but you can walk...

This is a good place to stay in San Francisco. The Marina location is nice, there's good shopping, lots of restaurants and bars in the area, it's close to the Presidio and a short walk to waterfront locations. It's and older property and it could use a facelift, but the rates are decent, it is very clean and the staff...

Cow Hollow Inn is within walking distance of many restaurants, bars and the Marina Green. If you are feeling like a longer walk you can also walk to Fishermans Wharf in about a half hour. The rooms are large although the ones that front Lombard Street are very noisy. Staff is welcoming and friendly. The best thing is free parking

Fab location in the Marina district; great restaurants literally next door and the door after that! Shopping on Chestnut St. right around the corner is great, several boutiques. PARKING is included in room price....almost unheard of in San Francisco. Location makes it easy to get to other parts of the city and hop on and off the Golden Gate.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
