Why We Love This Hotel

  • The lobby and public spaces underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2018
  • This wildly colourful hotel just two blocks from Union Square is ranked one of the top hotels in the city by U.S. News & World Report
  • Nightly wine reception, morning coffee and tea service
  • Near neighbourhoods with historic cable cars and rich cultural traditions

"Very attentive staff and welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Well-appointed, updated rooms. Our room was quiet on the 7th floor away from the street. The four of us enjoyed the complimentary wine hour between 5 + 6 and talking to the host. Lovely experience and we would return."

Set a shopaholic 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 to exotic far-flung outfitters. It takes a deft touch to combine so many styles at once -- something accomplished in the riotously colorful guest rooms at The Marker, two blocks west of the square.

Ranked one of the top hotels in the city by U.S. News & World Report, The Marker greets guests in its newly renovated lobby (2018) with a floor-to-ceiling historic fireplace and grand marble staircase. Gather in the Living Room, the cozy fireside lounge, for daily coffee and tea and a nightly 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 lie areas rich with tourist treasures. Dragon’s Gate, the symbolic entrance to a dense and multi-layered Chinatown, is less than a 15-minute walk northeast. Two blocks east 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.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free drink coupons at the neighboring pub were used and very appreciated. Two-block walk to the cable cars was nice.

The interior of the hotel was filled with wonderful details from the lavender chandeliers to the ‘sit inside’ fireplace. The Living Room where the wine happy hour and morning coffee service were provided had a lot of cozy chairs, a fireplace and was a nice room to hang out and relax. The hotel staff was friendly, informative and helpful. The room was very comfortable and relaxing after a day in Golden Gate Park. We would recommend The Marker.

Other Comments
My issues were more with travelzoo than the hotel. I had to book 4 separate reservations and each was charged differently. One reservation was completely paid for in advance. The others all had one day precharged only. That was refunded by the hotel and then we had to pay. Very confusing and messy to reconcile.
