I travel a fair amount for business, and we most often stay at Marriotts in various cities -- so that's the lens through which I'll view this hotel. Which means that if you're looking for a place to take the family on a trip, there are probably other reviews that would be more germane.
The more I stay at them, the more I enjoy Marriotts -- for business travel. The beds are (always!) comfortable. The rooms are large, clean, nicely appointed and great places to crash after long work days. The housekeepers are professional and conscientious -- and they're more than willing to provide the small touches that make all the difference in this kind of travel.
The location was very convenient, both for our business needs and for a little bit of off-hours tourism as well. Very near the financial district, a short walk to Nob Hill and Chinatown, a shorter walk to the city's historic street cars and the Powell Street terminus for two of the city's storied streetcar lines.
The Mission Grill breakfast spread is really good, though they don't do dinner. (Lunch? Don't know; was always working through lunch.) The lobby bar/restaurant menu is good, though portions are a little small and the general lobby design and layout mean that you'll be eating in a space that doesn't approach a relaxing, intimate dining experience. The food was good, though.
One of the hotel's attractions is the 39th floor -- a very nice bar with great views of the city (and beyond). Food service as well. But because the lobby bar/eatery closes at 11, the 39th floor gets (even more) crowded after that. It ends up being noisy, and crowded -- which can be fun. But it definitely wasn't a particularly relaxing space after you've been working all day.
Really like this hotel, and would be happy to stay here again.
