This hotel was our base, for my first visit to SF over New Years. Overall pretty happy, but it wasn't as awesome as we were expecting. The website and photos make it look a lot better than it was. This hotel would be a lot cheaper if it wasn't in SF! Service was great at reception. Pros: -Located right near...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Marker Hotel. It was for just one-night, but it had all of the qualities I look for in a hotel. The room had a nice ambience to it-pleansantly decorated and colorful; the location couldn't have been better-just few short blocks from Union Square; and the staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I got...

It's our first time staying at the Marker Hotel. The hotel location is very convenient and only a few blocks away from the Union Square. Front Desk and Housekeeing staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room is very comfortable. Our room is facing Geary street, sometimes it can be noisy at night.

Taylor and Eddie checked us in, and they were both very friendly and funny! Needless to say, check-in was very smooth. All of the staff throughout the hotel were very friendly, quick to greet us and offer...

The hotel staff was fantastic from valet to the front desk to house cleaning to the restaurant. The rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. Everyone was gracious and went out of their way to assist us if we needed anything. Fantastic location just blocks from Union Square. I'll definitely be back!

Everything was great, but valet parking was insanely expensive. Also breakfast was very expensive, even though what we ordered and ate was very basic. The staff was very helpful, and very nice, and very welcoming. the lobby was beautiful, and location was handy, however, transvestite hooker chilling outside the Walgreen's across the block detracted from the experience, but it's not...

ALL of the Staff was so personal and friendly that we've ever experienced at a hotel. They treated us like family, with much appreciation. The citrus water was lovely. Our room was so clean. Bedding and towels were wonderful. We loved receiving the emails prior to our stay.

Great spot to stay in San Francisco! Two blocks from Union Square. Rooms are nice, beds are comfy. Be sure to put "Leave me be." sign on your door at night. Housekeeping starts early and will knock on your if your sign isn't there.
