Nice quality hotel. Well designed and tastefully decorated spacious rooms. Wireless internet, the pet peeve of mine at hotels across the globe, was spotty but otherwise this hotel met expectations from a JW. Location is very convenient.

I stayed here 10 years ago when it was a different brand and there have not been too many upgrades. Check in was efficient if a bit slow. Part of my floor/ carpet was soaking wet, I reported it yet nothing was done. Someone must have dumped a bucket of water, at least that is what I hope. The room...

This is one of the best Marriott properties that I have stayed in. The entire staff was extremely friendly. The hotel was very clean. The service was excellent. The restaurant and bar created a really nice place to get out of the room. Too bad it was on business or I could have enjoyed it much more. We did have...

I stayed at this hotel for only one night but it was an excellent experience. I received a very warm and courteous welcome from the front desk; the room was large and well appointed and the ironing board and iron came in useful, saving on a press of my suit. Although my room did not have a great view, the...

We really enjoyed Sony Holland and her husband, they play in the bar/restaurant area several nites a week. The hotel...

This is truly an outstanding hotel. It has a breathtaking few--inside the hotel--when you look down at the floors below--as well as a great view of the city on the upper floors. The concierge was friendly and helpful and they really made you feel welcome.

Have stayed twice in 6 months at this hotel for business. Clean, spacious room with place to work and relax. Gym is good and downstairs bar great for people watching. Right in Union Square, close to ferry building and convention center. Great choice to be right in the middle of everything.
