U.S. News Review

Located one block north of Union Square, this Marriott hotel provides sightseers a convenient home base for exploring San Francisco. Business travelers will benefit from staying here, too: San Francisco Marriott Union Square houses 10,000 square feet of meeting space and provides a number of services to help promote productivity, including high-speed Internet access and copy and printing facilities. Previous guests report pleasant stays, praising the hotel's 400 guest rooms and suites on their red and yellow decor, spacious layouts and flat-screen TVs. The 30-floor hotel also features a well-appointed fitness center, but for those looking to skip the workout routine and indulge, bin480 is the place to be. The trendy in-house restaurant earns praise for its contemporary California cuisine — the menu features such choices as short rib pot roast, garlic prawn pizza and gelato. In addition to the tasty eats, visitors are also quick to acknowledge the Marriott's friendly and helpful service staff.

Critic Reviews


“The 30-floor property has everything — both good and bad — that you'd expect from an urban Marriott, including comfortable beds, up-to-date electronics, an average restaurant, and a fee for Wi-Fi.”


“Guests are encouraged to bring their laptops or newspapers to the Great Room lobby, sit on autumn-hued couches at the picture windows, and watch the cable cars pass, while some rooms have views of the bay, city lights, and Union Square. ”
