We just spent 1 night in San Francisco and found The Marker to be a great deal. Perfect area to stay, friendly staff and a lovely room. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel and really enjoy the food. Overall it was a great experience.

The staff was so courteous and pleasant. The room was beautiful, clean and very centrally located. We walked everywhere. From 5-6 pm they serve wine off the lobby for all guests in a large comfortable room with games available and large windows so you can relax and people watch before you leave for the evening.

Had a lovely comfortable room, very clean. Staff where helpful and friendly. Nice bar area... Overall a nice stay. Ideal for exploring downtown SF close to Union square and Market Street Areas. One down side for me was that the hotel does not have room service for food, which is needed for business travellers. There is a restaurant on the...

Place has character. Room was ok - wish the shower was updated along with the gym. Lack of sauna like the internet pictures was disappointing as that was the main reason I booked this place. Things like a sauna are nice to refresh the body after long days...(and nights)

We loved this hotel - the staff were lovely and we had sleep great rooms (we stayed twice in executive king and Mediterranean suite). The breakfast in the tratto restaurant next door is pretty good, coffee was really good. Not far from Union Square and about $10 uber ride to the wharf/food markets.

We loved the hotel, the staff, the living room where we played checkers and drank tea and the interesting neighborhood around it. Would definitely recommend the hotel and plan to stay here again. The room was bright and cheerful and the beds were very comfortable.

Got a beautiful 1-bedroom spa suite and it was fabulous! Nice views from the 6th floor and a spotless room. The bed was amazing and the square footage was generous for a place like San Francisco. The spa tub was delightful. Amazing customer service especially from Eddie who really does take customer service seriously and is so friendly and accommodating!...

The staff were so friendly and eager to help make our stay a comfortable one. The hotel was grand and the room was spacious and tastefully decorated. We appreciated being able to ask for extra towels or be on a higher or lower floor, whatever our preference, ahead of time through their online check in. All in all, we highly...
