The Marker Hotel - Union Square

Union Square, San Francisco

The hotel

Put yourself slap-bang in the middle of some of San Francisco’s most fashionable theatres, restaurants, and sights. The boutique Marker Hotel is a great base — and its energy matches its setting. It was built in 1910 but you can still see its ‘Beaux Arts’ beauty in the lobby’s floor-to-ceiling fireplace and grand marble staircase. The hotel’s anything but olde-worlde though, with little touches like WiFi, a Hydration Station providing fruit and herb infused water on tap, and a social wine hour each evening.

I loved this hotel, from the cute little touches in the room to the beautiful fire place in the lobby. When we first arrived we did question “where are we?” purely because the area isn’t the greatest. The sheer amount of homelessness and drug users in the area was quite intimidating. However union square is a short walk away and once we got exploring and headed to the Bay Area, we loved SF. The hotel is welcoming with an amazing restaurant on site, hotel staff are lovely and go out of their way to help. The room itself is lovely. Amazing decor and felt so cosy. Would definitely recommend. Read less

We had stayed across the street at the Adagio in Oct2016 and were not impressed; while walking around the neighborhood then, we went into the lobby and vowed to stay at the Marker the next time we were in SFO -- this time, we stayed three nights, had a fabulous room and a very satisfying experience all around.

Upon the arrival the front desk agents were ready to help and answer any questions we had. The inside of the building is quite beautiful. The room was cozy and the bathroom had great features. Who doesn’t love a good bath? We hope to come back soon!
