    Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
    San Diego, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4425 reviewsTripAdvisor (4425)

    Situated between the convention center and the marina, the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is an ideal base camp for both business travelers and families. The surrounding Gaslamp Quarter hosts a plethora of dining, shopping and nightlife options to keep hotel guests busy (which is nice because recent visitors say that dining at Marina Kitchen Restaurant & Bar can get expensive). Visitors praise the fitness center and two pools, and most guests were pleased with the accommodations, despite the room rates being a little steep. All rooms and suites come dressed in a neutral color palette, custom bedding and flat-screen TVs. If possible, reserve a room facing the pool and harbor for better views and to avoid the ringing bells of passing trams. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter
    San Diego, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1498 reviewsTripAdvisor (1498)

    This Marriott hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter earns rave reviews for its convenient location in the heart of downtown San Diego, putting guests within walking distance of top attractions such as the USS Midway Museum, the Gaslamp Quarter and Petco Park. Guest rooms here are outfitted with LCD TVs, Starbucks coffee, Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities as well as work spaces with Wi-Fi access (for a fee). And when guests are not out on the town, they can take advantage of the in-house fitness center or grab a drink at the rooftop bar, ALTITUDE Sky Lounge. Although the San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter is within walking distance of numerous neighborhood eateries, grab a bite at Soleil @k if you don't feel like traveling too far for grub. And because of its family ties, this hotel allows visitors to earn or pay with Marriott Bonvoy points.

    Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa
    Dana Point, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1519 reviewsTripAdvisor (1519)
    Free WiFi

    A short walk from the Dana Point Marina (and about 58 miles south of downtown Los Angeles), the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa wins points with guests for its fantastic location and spectacular coastline views. But for some previous guests, this Marriott's ability to wow wanes once they looked beyond the vistas. Travelers are turned off by the resort's extra fees: the resort fee will run you an additional $25 daily, while $37 per day for valet parking adds up quickly (self-parking is not available). And though guests praise the seafood and American fare served on site at the Vue Restaurant, many say that room service here could use some improvement. That said, visitors are mostly pleased with the guest rooms and suites, which house pillow-top beds, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. The Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort also boasts two heated outdoor pools, a fitness center and a full-service spa. What's more, this property participates in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, meaning members can earn or pay with points here.

    Grand Residences by Marriott, Lake Tahoe
    South Lake Tahoe, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1015 reviewsTripAdvisor (1015)
    Free WiFi

    Located in South Lake Tahoe (on the California side of the lake), the spacious lodgings at the Grand Residences by Marriott are ideal for vacationing families. Skiers appreciate that the gondola up to the Heavenly Ski Resort is just steps from the front door. When you need to thaw, take a dip in the hotel's heated pool or hot tub. Because this is a Grand Residence, the rooms are owned by Marriott Vacation Club members, meaning that the amenities resemble those of timeshares more than hotel rooms; you'll get a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Even though the resort does not charge for Wi-Fi usage, the $29 per day valet parking fee galled many recent guests. This property is a Marriott Bonvoy category 8, meaning that members need at least 35,000 points to book a free night.

    San Francisco Marriott Marquis
    San Francisco, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 7118 reviewsTripAdvisor (7118)

    Just off Powell Street near the Yerba Buena Gardens, the San Francisco Marriott Marquis sits within easy reach of the city's transportation circuits (including the legendary cable cars), making it a good home base for visitors planning to cover a lot of ground. And when you need to take a load off, you'll find the Marriott's guest rooms cozy, with LCD TVs, pillow-top mattresses and high-speed Internet access. For a quick bite to eat, previous guests highly recommend grabbing a drink and some appetizers at The View Lounge. This rooftop restaurant's giant floor-to-ceiling windows give visitors expansive views of the bay. For something a little more filling, head to Bin 55 Restaurant for plates piled high with Continental cuisine. And should you need to burn some calories, this Marriott Marquis property houses a fitness center and an indoor pool (not to mention spa services). Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    Anaheim Marriott Hotel
    Anaheim, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2398 reviewsTripAdvisor (2398)

    Adjacent to the Anaheim Convention Center, the Anaheim Marriott caters mainly to business clientele. And with 100,000 square feet of meeting space, the hotel lures conferences and guests alike. Wireless Internet exists throughout the complex to keep its visitors connected (though you should expect to pay an extra fee for in-room access). This Marriott's proximity to Disneyland draws families, who can also enjoy the hotel's more universal amenities – like the outdoor pool – when they're not hanging with Mickey. The hotel also houses nFuse Restaurant Bar & Lounge as a dining option. Some recent guests have remarked, however, that the guest room decor could use an update. However, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points here.

    San Francisco Marriott Union Square
    San Francisco, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2036 reviewsTripAdvisor (2036)

    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 more than 9,000 square feet of meeting space and provides a number of services to help promote productivity, including high-speed internet access and copy and fax facilities. Guests recommend booking a room on the higher levels for the views and lack of street noise, though some guests found them to be on the small side. 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. In addition to the tasty eats at the on-site restaurant, visitors are also quick to acknowledge the Marriott's friendly and helpful service staff. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront
    Burlingame, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2010 reviewsTripAdvisor (2010)

    Sitting about 15 miles south of downtown San Francisco in Burlingame, California, the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront wins over red-eye fliers with its convenience and reliability. Guests particularly appreciate the hotel's complimentary airport shuttle service, and the front desk staff is reportedly kind and helpful, regardless of what time of day you arrive. Travelers describe the rooms as clean and comfortable and recommend taking advantage of the location by booking a room with a view of the bay. Guests can also find a fitness center and indoor pool on-site, as well as the Hangar Steak restaurant and Starbucks. However, with all its perks, some guests couldn't help but feel irked by the extra charges for Wi-Fi and parking. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1583 reviewsTripAdvisor (1583)

    The Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa sits on Coronado Island about 5 miles from downtown San Diego (and the San Diego Convention Center), so it's a popular choice among business travelers. But its picturesque bay views are enjoyed by all who stay here. Guests also laud the resort's spacious guest rooms, which include private balconies or patios, high-speed internet access (for a fee) and flat-screen TVs. This Marriott's proximity to the Ferry Landing also earns praise (guests can take water taxis to San Diego from Coronado if they'd prefer not to drive). Those who prefer to stay nearby can take advantage of the in-house spa, three heated pools and easy access to the beach. Plus, guests who choose to bed down here can earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points toward free stays and other perks.

    Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa
    Newport Beach, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1296 reviewsTripAdvisor (1296)

    Shoppers and golfers should be pleased with this Marriott because it's sandwiched between the Newport Beach Country Club and Fashion Island shopping center in Newport Beach, California. And guest rooms meet the needs of discerning visitors – accommodations house marble bathrooms (with glass-enclosed showers), plasma TVs and pillow-top beds, while boasting desirable views of the Pacific, the Newport Beach Yacht Harbor or the golf course. But not all guests are impressed: Some travelers complain that steep fees for internet use and parking can add up quickly. However, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can save on extra fees by using accumulated points to cover the tab. Meanwhile, on the premises you will find two heated pools, a steakhouse, a spa and a Starbucks Marketplace – all features that customers do enjoy.

    If you're hoping to make La Jolla your home base while in San Diego, this Marriott outpost may be for you. Though the hotel is about 14 miles north of downtown San Diego, it's surrounded by a bevy of attractions, all located within a 7-mile radius of the property. Shoppers can head across the street to the Westfield UTC shopping center, sun-seekers can retreat to La Jolla Shores, adventurers can traverse the trails at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and animal lovers can gawk at the vibrant sea life showcased at the Birch Aquarium. After a long day of exploration, travelers can retreat to well-equipped rooms, which recent visitors described as quiet and comfortable. Accommodations are outfitted with king-sized beds (a guest favorite), flat-screen TVs, minifridges and floor-to-ceiling windows, and some rooms travelers say you can see the ocean from. There's also a 24-hour fitness center on-site, as well as a rooftop swimming pool and two dining options, one of which specializes in California cuisine. And because of its family ties, this hotel allows visitors to earn or pay with Marriott Bonvoy points.
