Got a corner room in the tower so the view of S.F. was spectacular. Room was small but very comfortable. Address of the hotel is misleading to those who drive as there is no entrance at the address. Finding the car entrance took seven block detour.
Convenient location, easy access to transport and shopping areas I was unable to check in until 15.00 hrs. even though I informed the hotel that I arrived after a 10-hour trip to Japan
We stayed in an Imperial Club Room which was like a suite and means I would expect the comfort and luxury we got for the price we paid. My reviews are totally based on this and obviously if you stayed in a normal room you will have a different experience. Extra things are included when you pay for an Imperial Club Room. We also requested a quiet room if possible so were high up and had no issues with noise (this was based on previous reviews where people had issues with noise). The shower could have been a bit more powerful but was okay.
The location No.
Beautiful room Concierge Club not well serviced during the evening drinks
The room on the 23rd floor that included breakfast. Overall the staff could have been more customer friendly. The seating process for Thanksgiving dinner was very disorganized although we made reservations several days before. The Anzu staff had difficultly accommodating the number of diners. It was extremely noisy. Club Lounge should vary the appetizers instead of the same each night.
Staff was immediately attentive to any need; bathroom was large, with a great shower and free-standing sink; room was quiet; view of S.F. was lovely. Hotel initially lost Booking.com reservation but corrected this when I called to reserve confirmation three weeks ahead and faxed copy of booking.com confirmation. Initial problems with room (phone that didn't work, no blow dryer) very quickly corrected.
Great location, beautiful hotel, very comfortable and large rooms.
I like the fact the beds are away from the busy hall. the decor of the hotel; a little boring
Everyone was really helpful
Very friendly service. Very convenient location. Very good value.
dark room with a small window
The location was really the best and only great thing about this hotel. I still can't believe they don't have valet parking. At over $200 this place should be able to park your car. To have to pay over $100 to park my own car is the main reason I will never retrurn to this hotel
Parking very very very expensive
very poor internet connectivity despite high prices for it
The tavern in the hotel was fantastic and upscale; excellent choice. The room was spacious and comfortable for a family. The lobby and hallways are a bit sterile, could use more modern, less noisy design.
Convince cleanness nice restaurant The expensive fee for flippin parking in your garage felt like we got robbed leaving S.f
Smoking room Too many conferences
It was walking distance to the club we went to. The bathroom wasn't as clean as it could have been.
Location in the center Hotel very impersonnal, nothing in the bbathroom, such as shower cap, glass,or shower gel.
Room was really big and comfortable. Location is very convenient for shopping and entertainment in SF. Wifi is not included and has to be paid separately.
Location No swimming pool
Hotel was clean We booked a room for two night with a king size bed upon arrival we were not told they didn't have a room for us instead sent us to a room with double beds wouldn't accommodate us claiming they had "no more rooms available "... next day had issues relocating our luggage to next room. Parking was absurd $70 dollars a night ?? Overrated
They tried to steal my luggage when I first came in, took them over 4 hours to bring my stuff up. I said enough of this bs and went to go down myself and get all my stuff to find it hiding in a room away from everyone else while the guy at the front was telling me "it'll be there shortly were a little backed up". Then to top it all off I find $35 of charges from the hotel of stuff I never used. I've never been so disrespected by a hotel in my life. Shady workers I highly recommend you don't stay here.
Friendly accommodating staff. Great location, beautiful facility. The observatory level was cool, but packed, so much so we didn't stay to enjoy the view. I would recommend to a friend. Disappointed that I reserved a room with a larger bed and due to room availability we were moved to a double, which my wife and I were unable to share. We're by no means large people. It would have been nice to be able to park or rental without being charged extra, but that seems to be a norm in the city.
Location is excellent. Big hotel where you get lost. Looks and feel old, needs a major renovation.
Everything else was great Price for parking
They were accommodating and nice
The room was clean, the bed was amazing, location was walking distance to all things downtown, I felt safe with my young son, easy express checkout. No room service, for the money we spent I would've liked to see a free breakfast, the cost of parking is insane (it is SF though), no pool.
We enjoyed the Marriott Marquis hotel very much , but the valet only parking is a bit spends. Thank goodness there is another parking garage one block over. Y
Great location great front desk people beautiful view Drink left in room from previous occupant
Really nice lobby, rooms where clean The wifi wasn't free, they charged you to use a computer for $.40 per minute. I really needed a workstation. No hot tube or pool for $400 per night. Will not go back.
The value for the money is really good! It was clean, spacious, well decorated. We ensured to get two beds in the bedroom and we got them!
Location and view from room
Great room in Tower section,with great view & very comfortable beds. Also very helpful concierge named Jeff. We had to remind them on two occasions to clean our room. On the day before check-out,our room was not cleaned or refreshed. This was really the only negative,apart from the fact that the drinks in the main bar are quite expensive.
location! slight decripitude
Its location was prime reason for choice Drinks and food too expensive
The breakfast buffet and the beds were excelent. The site location is great and the building has a great history The service staff at the breakfast room was not good.
great location rooms are too dated. needs major renovation. coffee bar in the middle of the lobby is too tacky for a luxury hotel if it is one.
The feeling, atmosphere of the hotel.
the checkin was excellant, The room was great. The vallet service was very accomadating. called downstairs to get closet door fixed and the man who answered the phone was very rude.
The desk manager weas excellent Strike is bad poor service at breakfast
Very convenient location.
Good location and good nice hotel
We only had a short stay - stopover of 2 days as we were on route to Canada. Close proximity to Union Square / Cable Car and city shopping and ofcourse the easy access from SFO Airport via the BART. $10 return trip each was a steel. Hotel staff excellent. Room was perfect - high floor with views and the bestest 2 x Queens - very very comfortable Not a thing - was just perfect and I would stay again, actually I would go out of my way to stay there again
The staff were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive.Received a free upgrade to a suite without even asking which really made our trip! I have already recommended this hotel to colleagues! No
Hilton Honors perks made a good place great - $10 to upgrade to full breakfast and a suite. Good facilities, helpful staff
We loved the 23rd floor and the view from our room. We could see the parade and crowds from above instead of joining in on the giants parade. We also felt the bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet with relatively little street noise. We were not happy with the additional 120.00 U.S. added to our bill. According to Booking.com, we were quoted 798.00 for the 4 nights. On our print out, it stated "total costs" 798.00. Nowhere did it state that there would be an additional 120 added. We would never use your website again.
Great location, accommodation comfortable, staff helpful and professional
Good location, friendly staff
location was very good. people were very friendly
Its in a great location downtown.
Convenient location, clean room with a comfortable bed.
The staff at the Hotel was extremely helpful and accommodating. Especially your front desk reservation clerck and the bell desk.
Comfortable and clean. Good location No room service
The room they put us in was very small. There was no refrigerator, no microwave, nothing that would make the stay comfortable or say luxury. Plus the parking cost and facilities fees are ridiculously high.
View was amazing, bed was comfortable, showers were updated,halls were quiet (well insulated walls). Easy access to hotel and downtown destination. Great overall. It did not provide a mini fridge. We had to ask for one.
Location was nice for exploring the city. Room was clean/comfortable. NO INTERNET at this hotel... In the modern age, it's ridiculous that wifi/high speed internet is not included in the cost of the hotel when you purchase ahead of time. On top of that, I asked about wifi when I was checking in, and the lady told me we could get internet with an OPTIONAL ~$35 PER night fee, that included internet and other services like bike rentals. We didn't want to spend this, so it made sense that I couldn't connect to any wifi from my hotel room. When I checked out, they said they had charged us for the fee, and that it was required, despite the fact that we'd never connected to the internet. Outrageous that this wasn't just in the price of the hotel from the getgo... Don't bother with this place until they get with the modern age.
We had a view even from the 9th floor. Very clean and cozy. Staff was really kind. No mini fridge :(
Great location. Nice staff. Bathroom too small. Drain didn't work well in tub. Sink drain wouldn't close. Toilet too close to door.
I loved the view and staff was extremely friendly and the location great. Bed was very comfortable and and room was nice and clean. Mabye a lil upgrade on the appliances other than that it was great. I think for the resort fee it should have came with a little more amenities.
You had to pay for WiFi and the restaurant had a very limited menu.
Great location Restaurant can be improved, i. e. choice & prices slightly too high
Location. Proximity to public transportation. Doors, fixtures show age, wear and tear. Facilities fee (which I assume were adjusted for SPG Platinum members)
Poor accommodations. Rude staff.
View was great, staff was very friendly, and room was very clean. $58 for over night parking is outrageous, because of that I will not stay here again. Also, $20 for wifi? For the price you're paying that should definitely be included. We had to ask twice for a crib to be sent up to the room, that was a little disappointing when I had two small children to get to bed upon arrival. Also would have been nice to have a mini fridge included in the room. When traveling with kids it's very convenient to have a fridge to store their milk, snacks, etc
Great vibe in the hotel bar. Room service was slow, found a hair in my food, ordered a Coke three times and never got it, was provided with only a comforter and fitted sheet on my bed, food wasn't very good.
The room and hallways where dark, the bathrooms are in bad shape (old and rusty), the tv was small and didn't have on demand. It used to be THE PLACE TO STAY in SF... Not anymore...needs a remodel urgently.
Old & tired Tired
Room was nothing special the lobby and bar were cool The room was was average and bathroom was very old decore
I loved the large room! The space was great. Loved the airy feel.
Classy Good room service food Hidden cost for valet parking - $52 a night Hidden cost for a 50 cent aux cord - $100 deposit Hidden cost for more than 5 glasses ordered for guests House keeping failed to clean my room one day when I called them before leaving for the day specifically asking them to tidy up No Hot tub or pool
Superb location right in the heart of San Francisco's Union Square area, excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. Beautifully decorated room that was quiet and serene. Standard room king was quite small. No room for more than a couple.
The bed was very comfortable. The room was dark with the curtains pulled closed. I stayed at the Clift this past weekend with my wife for a "staycation" away from the Oakland grind we call our normal lives. A few concerns with the Clift Hotel. When we arrived we were unsure about how the valet worked since there are no signs or "red jackets" (they wear black). We had to circle the block and call to find out what the deal was. It's also expensive, $52+ tax per night. Once we were in the Hotel we were told that our room wasn't ready, which was completely fine since we arrived 3 hours prior to check in time. We happily checked our bag and went for a stroll around union square. The problem is that the woman at the counter said we should expect a phone call with in the hour when our room was ready. We waited the hour and then another hour. No call. We then returned to the Hotel at 3pm and were told by the same women that it "should be ready within the hour."This would take us up to check in time...Finally at 4pm we complained and a manager upgraded us to a Jr. Suite and promptly gave us the keys. Sales Training: under promise and over deliver, not the other way around. Finally we arrive in our room and its pretty nice. It was on the 15th floor and the view was pretty urban SF high life. We were happy. The tub and painted surfaces were chipping and sup par. apparently this room costs $450+ per night, If I paid that I expect a little more attention to detail and quality. We dined at the Velvet Room, the Hotel's restaurant. We were offered a cold and breezy table next to the hallway leading to the bar but were happily seated in a lovely booth when we requested that. Dinner was delicious. The Redwood Room, their high shelf bar, is always crowded and all seating is reserved for $350+ bottle service. The common areas are nice, warm, and cozy. The room is three star. The overall experience is ok, we'll try another place next month and report back.
Expensive mini bar, breakfast etc
The staff and location were both excellent, the bar is also fun (and the reason I knew about the hotel to begin with). There sure are a lot of interesting chairs around! Room service was prompt and the food was tasty. The bed is comfortable and the rooms have pretty good noise control. The rooms are in dire need of updating. We stayed in a studio so the size was good, but things just seemed old. The walls needed touch up paint, the bathtub was peeling (about a 10'' section was missing plaster), the grout was stained, the hair dryer must be from 1985, the thermostat is old making it hard to control room temperature, the faucet was probably really awesome 20 years ago, but now it is difficult to get it in the "off" position, not good in a state experiencing a drought.
The location was very convienent. I chose to park down the street and save $30 for over night parking. Nice pillows and comfy bed. This hotel is really small the room was giving me an allegric reactions I could not breath, until we forced the window open. The shower curtain and shower smelled really bad. That was gross. I will not be staying here again.
Great food, staff and service. Valet took a little long.
Amazing service and experience! We we're there for our honeymoon and loved every moment. The staff went out of there way to help us.
Nice rooms. Polite staff. Nice bathrooms. Everything worked without an issue. At Reservation, called the 800 number. I was told they only had two suites available. No rooms. Two minutes later, I went on Kayak and booked two rooms with no issue. Service was in no way exceptional. It was a little irritating that bell desk couldn't get cab. Food/bar is terrible Surcharge for internet access is ludicrous
Very friendly staff, great service. The access to Equinox is fabulous! Prime, prime location--the best!! In-room dining is awful. I had breakfast twice, and was severely disappointed at the outrageous price for the poor, poor quality of every aspect of the food--coffee is burnt and thick like mud, toast burnt, side vegetables unbelievably expensive with NO quality. The fresh orange juice is good. And that's it. Otherwise, the hotel is just wonderful.
Great hotel and staff. They treated us perfectly. I would absolutely stay here again. No complaints as all. The location for us was a bit too close to some seedy areas of town. No problem, but you need to be careful which way you walk.
I liked how the staff was really attentive. Rooms clean, everyine real proffesional. I didnt like the fact that when u drive in to check in they dont tell u that the charge for parking is 65$ . Also that the water thats in the room thats bottled i didnt know they would charge me 8:50$ for it. Ridiculous! I seen when i checkd out!
The room stunk! For $600 get some air freshener.
I hosted a bachelorette party at the Intercontinental and it was great!! The staff was very accommodating and helped us with making sure all the girls were taken care of. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, and the hotel was extremely spacious. There was a "bouncer" type employee at night who gave me and the girls staying at the hotel a hard time. He required every girl to have a key in their hand to get in, even though we just had one person per room have a key because we didn't think it was necessary. He was extremely rude and borderline harassing.
Appreciated the staff the location and the lounge/restaurant. The room was great with a nice view each morning ....
Awesome views of AT&T Park and the Bay. Front desk agent was great.
Luxury accommodations. Very friendly and helpful staff. Valet parking fee is crazy high!
Comfortable bed, clean facilities Check out was at 12:00pm as normal but was woken up by maid knocking on door at 9:15am. Charged my credit card $100.00 more than what was on invoice when I checked out. To be refunded within 5days or so supposedly....... It would have been nice to know beforehand.
Given a corner room even though I booked via Kayak Provided with slippers Room was spacious and TV was large - guess is 55" Gym was well equipped but didn't have time to use it Easter bunny was on duty and there was a tableful of candy for the young and not so young - I didn't have any but still appreciated the effort Bathroom short on racks to hang towels Shower head water flow too wimpy Bathroom scale low on battery
Great location, modern decor, and cozy spot to relax in! Our new favorite hotel!!!
Great location, cool decor, friendly staff It's older and in a loud area, elevator was creepy
Loved the boutique vibe that the hotel has, it seems SF is lacking modern hotels that are similar to the Ace and plentiful of tacky hotels. The decor is very minimal, with concrete floors- it feels similar to a loft you would want to live in. The restaurant downstairs had a really great brunch and the staff were very friendly. The actual location is pretty central, so it's not that difficult to leave the touristy area of Union Square. There wasn't a mention of the $45 (plus tax) for the valet. So that got a bit expensive. You also have to call 30 minutes ahead. The shower is also a lukewarm temperature. And a bit difficult to work with it being stuck.
The staff really was fantastic and pretty much bent over backwards to accomodate us in almost anyway possible. Plus I learned after the fact they are really pet friendly. Thats good to remember for the future. When I booked through booking.com the description said that the room I was booking would have a jacuzzi tub. I was going on a romantic get away and booked this room for this price becaue I thought it would have a jacuzzi tub. The room was beautiful, but no jacuzzi tub and the bathroom was a bit small at that.
The decor was cute, and the room cleanliness we immaculate. Hotel rooms in San Francisco are pretty small, and this is no exception. However, the reception area was luxurious and beautiful, perfect during their evening wine receptions. I could go on about the wonderful staff- really, all of them acted like they were my friends, excited to tell me all about the good shopping, eating, et nearby that I HAD to try ; ) They were right too!
It nicely located near Union Square. The staff were very helpful. The hotel was clean and well kept. Our room was very nice except no view but that was ok. The hotel has complementary bikes for guest to use (great way to get around the city). Very comfortable place to stay. Would stay there again.
I've stayed at this property several times and it's convenient and a great property. My room had a moldy smell that got worse over the two nights I stayed -- I haven't had this experience at a Monaco before ....
Great hotel - feels very luxurious, good staff, and complementary wine hour! Highly recommended. Our second visit and we'll definitely stay there again when in SF. Rooms could be larger. Area - although only a couple of blocks from Union Square - gets more edgy late at night, but that's how San Francisco works.
This hotel is well-located -- easy to walk to Union Square and Chinatown, walkable to the waterfront/Embarcadero, and a quick drive to the Mission, Golden Gate Park, etc. The staff could not be more pleasant and helpful. The lobby area is a nice place to lounge, and the rooms are comfortable. It would be really helpful to have coffee makers in the room or room service -- there is coffee in the lobby, but if you are traveling with kids or have an early morning, it is useful to have it in your room. I didn't care for the fact that the water bottles in the room had price tags. It would also be nice if the wine service rotated wines.
Hotel Monaco used to be one of my fav hotels in SF. This new Marker is horrible. They closed the spa, breakfast is extra charge. Parking costs 58 dollars. Short on staff to take phone calls. Take your business somewhere else.
The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and the rooms style was not bad. The hotel is close to union square and great area to walk around. The decor pillows on our bed were dirty. My bathroom shower towel was only changed once during my four night stay. I found the restaurant prices high and the waiters were not so nice.
Doggy Birthday Party Oliver's 3rd birthday. Benefit for animals that assist. Great get together. My toilet clogged the 1st night. very uncomfortable sitiutation. I am not a large person. (get my drift). so it wasnt anything that should have caused a problem.
Use the jaccuzzi, would have used the restaurant but it was too pricey. The people there seemed a bit stuffy, including the staff. When I asked a question it was like I was putting them out.
Location and decor.
Location. Rooms were clean. Rooms small, older building, odd furnishings, no views. San Francisco has many great hotels but this is not one of them.
comfortable, friendly environment with staff and other guests Missed Maverick the dog...but it wasn't the hotel's fault, he was sick!
The location was very good in the heart of the Union Square and everything was walkable from it. It was a little overpriced for what it offered.
Excellent location; free coffee and tea services in the morning; comfortable bed and towels.
Excellent, awarded restaurant. Great location. Did not like the location of the toilet door in the room - right next to the bed so you face it when you sleep.
Though expensive, everything was top notch.
Nice rooms - well designed, comfortable beds, good bath products, friendly staff. I liked that they were dog friendly, LGBT friendly, and had a daily run scheduled for guests. No in-room coffee and small gym where the TVs didn't all work.
Very good service and location.
Extremely helpful staff.
We enjoyed the proximity to the cable car line, the trolley line and Union Square.
Very good hotel nice staying I will go agian and I will recommend for my friends No thing worth
Staff was terrific, room was charming nothing
Friendly staff, clean room, nice surroundings, quite near to the cable car station The room was very small, but still okay
The hotel was very centrally located to everything! Easy walk to restaurants,and Union Square. I wish we had a coffee maker in the room,however coffee was served in the lobby and my request is that they change the time. Serving time was 5am to 7am. Maybe make it later to at least 8am??
Excellent location and very convenient. Great character and charm. Welcoming atmosphere both the staff and the general feel. Nice lobby. The toilet didn't always flush properly. The hot water in the sink did not turn off easily. You may be losing a lot a water if a guest isn't persistent about getting it turned off. We had to wait a long time to check in. Probably our fault for arriving at 2:30 in the afternoon.
Comfort, closeness to downtown, cleanliness and kindness of staff
The reception I received when I got there.
Great location and wonderful staff. There is no heat in the rooms.
I liked the friendly staff and location. The shower curtain was too short so the bathroom flor got soaked after every shower.
Rooms were very clean and maid service was very good. Situated close to all transport and close to China Town which had some great meals. Our room was situated on the street side of the hotel. Whilst initially apprehensive about possible road noise, it was no problem at all and we slept quite well as the bed was extremely comfortable.
Location was very good. Hotel was warm but Luckilly I had a bathroom with window that I could open. It's an old buidling with an old looking furniture, but you that when you make a reservation.
Large room, nice bathroom, overly public space (including a "playroom" which wasn't for kids but they were free to use), and a great bar that was buzzing but always had seats! Staff were very friendly and engaging. Didn't use onsite restaurant - breakfast looked a little limited for kids but various diners and cafes nearby. Great spot near muni and cable cars and Westfield shopping centre. Good for union square without being union square Restaurant menu looked fab for adults but not for kids for breakfast. Otherwise nothing negative
