When we checked in and went to our room we had a knock on the door immediately after, in which a lady came to check the bar and snack area after we had already checked in. She scampered around our small room to see what was drunken or eaten prior to us.... It was so weird and she didn't even check properly. There was also hair in the bathtub that which wasn't ours. Grossed me out a bit. The valet, check in went fine. Friendly staff. The restaurant staff was wonderful. Food and drinks were great!

We stayed in this hotel for two nights on Memorial day weekend. The hotel was very nice for the price. It's right on the edge of the tenderloin, so we did not walk to the left coming out of the hotel after dark, but it was fine during the day. We were super close to Union square which was fantastic. As well, the front staff was very knowledgeable and gave us great advice.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on holiday in San Francisco and chose it mainly for its location. The location was probably the best thing about it, as we were disappointed with the what the rest of the hotel has to offer. The biggest shock of all was the rip-off amenity fee of which we were really not expecting when checking in. This made our stay +$140 more expensive than we had anticipated, as when we had booked this from the UK through, there was absolutely no mention of ... Read more

I really liked staying at this hotel, and would have rated it 4-5 stars, but when you get your bill there is a $30/day "Amenity Fee" attached. Me: I'm trying to understand how I expense the Amenity Fee. Hotel: It covers all of our amenites. Me: Like? Hotel: Local phone calls. Me: I didn't make any phone calls. Hotel: And coffee. Me: I didn't have any coffee. Hotel: We charge it regardless. In short, it's pure mark up without calling it part of the room rate. I find it very, very sneaky.

Stayed here for six nights whilst attending the Bio conference in San Francisco. The rooms were tiny! Didn't feel that clean! To make matters worse, they shut the bar for refurbishment. That meant you could not meet clients at the hotel bar. They didn't even arrange an alternative. As regards location, the hotel is on the wrong side of Union Square! Opened a bottle of wine from mini bar. Disgusting!!! Called the front desk. No apology, or any offer to send up another bottle. Two glasses with di... Read more

You 'll pay an extra fee of 37 just for what is free in most of hotels, such as wifi and coffee in the morning ( awful by the way) Mattress is compatible with a cheap motel , if you are unlucky you'll see little roaches roaming on your bed. No room service . If I didn't rate it lower is because front desk people are nice in general and they do what they can in order to make your stay more tolerable

The Markers has some nice design elements for a boutique hotel. But overall I think this hotel is overpriced.. It has the appearance of a boutique hotel. But I do not really get the attentiveness a boutique hotel provide. We asked for a room with high floor during the reservation. The front desk make no attempt to accommodate that or acknowledged of such request from the reservation. Instead, the lowest floor was given to us.

Rooms were clean, trendy and well-appointed. Wifi worked well, so I was able to get work done while in the room. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. Kyle at the front desk was great - smiling, friendly and efficient. The bed was awesome. Hotel was right at Union Square, so shopping was right there at your doorstep. Only downside was the lack of view from my room (611), but I wasn't in town long enough for that to matter really. Be aware that there is a "resort fee" tacked onto the hotel room... Read more

The rooms were well decorated and quite spacious. The beds very comfortable. The free wine in the lobby each evening was a bonus, as was the free coffee in the mornings. The public areas were impressive. The location was excellent just along from Powell St., very convenient for breakfast and dinner locations.

The building is classic, styled in a rich, bold way. Lots of great textures and colors. Most importantly - it's way more spacious than other SF hotels, the beds are high-quality and super comfy, and the rooms get dark and quiet at night, with good temp control. (Not a sexy review, but helpful to know, right?) The staff are warm, knowledgeable and friendly. There's a complimentary coffee and tea bar in the morning, and a wine hour during happy hour with complimentary wine - this is a huge bonus ... Read more

We had a wonderful 8 day stay at The Marker! The location is superb, as we easily walked everywhere and was conveniently located to public transit (BART/MUNI) as well as the classic cable cars. The staff was absolutely amazing, and went the extra mile to give us our room very early (arrived around 12PM when check in is 3PM), and upgraded us to a suite which was very lovely. Only one thing I wish we had known, was that we were charged an extra $125 at the end of our stay for an "Amenities" fee,... Read more

This is for the 2 bikes out front (that are gone by 8am per the front desk guy) and the gym. The coffee in the morning is downstairs, not in your room but a nice feature that's included.

Booked The Marker for a quick trip to San Francisco for a girls weekend. The room was sophisticated and cheery. We requested a high room away from the elevator and upgraded for a bit larger room. We traded a skewed view for the Geary St. elevation - this worked for us. The staff was great (they responded quickly to our requests), the wine was great (can't say anything about appetizers as they ran out of them). Loved that they are pet friendly. Location was good for our plans.

The Marker Hotel while not in the real centre of the CBD is so close it need not matter. The tram, train and bus routes are probably a good 10 - 15 min walk away but a pleasant enough walk.

The problem is however that the reception staff seemingly do not tell anyone about those you only find out by accident. There is no information package in the rooms either.
