Set shopaholics loose in San Francisco’s Union Square, and there’s no telling what they’ll come back with. The neighbourhood stocks some of the world’s top designers, from fancy French couturiers to preppy American sportswear makers. It takes a deft touch to combine so many styles at once -- something accomplished in the riotously colourful guest rooms at The Marker San Francisco, two blocks west of the square.

Ranked one of the top hotels in the city by U.S. News & World Report, The Marker San Francisco greets guests with a lobby-dominating concrete fireplace that warms the room during the nightly complimentary wine hour from 5-6 p.m.

Unwind from a busy day of shopping and sightseeing with a hot stone massage or soothing body wrap. Spa treatments are all performed in the comfort of your guest room.

Some of San Francisco’s marquee theatres run along the same block. Although the neighbourhood to the west is the rough-and-tumble Tenderloin, in all other directions are areas rich with tourist treasures. Dragon’s Gate, the symbolic entrance to a dense and multi-layered Chinatown, is a 10-minute walk northeast. Two blocks west run the tracks of the Powell Street cable car, which assists with reaching the fashionable Nob and Russian Hills to the north, before sliding back down toward Fisherman’s Wharf and the bay on the other side.

From the press:
  • “A cheery 1910 Beaux-Arts facade and snappily dressed doormen welcome you” -- Fodor’s
  • “Everything is bold but tasteful, and as playful as it is serious, with nifty extras like flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi” -- Frommer’s

The front desk staff was amazing! Especially Ben, who was kind enough to upgrade my partner and I from a standard queen room to a king suite. Super comfy bed that was like sleeping on a cloud.

Afternoon wine reception served in a charming “living room” was much appreciated gesture after a day of touring.

I liked the style of the room, and it was very comfortable. The room was quiet and it was very easy to control the temperature of the room. We also enjoyed the free wine hour in the evening, and I really like the on-site restaurant - Tratto.
