“Mediocre at best.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Week of 3/12/2012. My small room and tiny bathroom were not clean. The windows are old and drafty so there was lots of street noise and a constant chill. There is no surface in the bathroom to place toiletries. I will never stay there again.

DISCLOSURE: I am a member of the Marines Memorial Association the non profit that owns this hotel.

I have never re.greted joining this organization. If you have been honorably discharged from any branch of the U.S military you are elgible to become a member of the Association which is fully tax deductible.

Members can stay at the hotel for a very reasonable rate, especially for San Francisco. Rates for a standard room run about $130 per night. The hotel is located just a few blocks off Union Square. The rooms have been all renovated and are clean and good size for the City. Included is a large buffet breakfast, happy hour every evening with an open bar on the 12th floor with a beatiful view of the bay, and free admission to the full athletic club. A fantastic deal for San Francisco.

The hotel itself is a veritable museum of the Marine Corps with a wonderful military library as well as the Marine Corps exhibits throughout the hotel.

If you are on Active Duty you can get a room for around $70 per night for your family. You do not have to be a Member. Rooms are also open to the public for very competitive rates.

I absolutely love this place! I have stayed at MMC on many occasions, and each time it just gets better and better. The staff is genuinely friendly and hospitable, always smiling, happy and ready to help. I appreciate seeing the same faces year after year, including the General Manager who is always so attentive and consistently goes above and beyond to make guests feel special and welcome.

The location of the property is fantastic, within close proximity to many of the city's major destinations and attractions. Very convenient, with the ability to walk for shopping, dining, sight seeing or catching a cable car or taxi.

The rooms are spacious and all of the facilities are very well-maintained. I am impressed with the amenities and appointments in each room, and with Housekeeping's attentiveness. There's a great business center and a fantastic gym. I also love the restaurant, which features great views and wonderful food. The included breakfast and happy hour is a great value, and a rare offering in hotels these days.

Most importantly, I always feel very safe at MMC, which is critical as a female who primarily travels alone. I would recommend MMC to anyone-- families, business travelers, leisure travelers... Thanks for another memorable stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful. Suites are huge and extremely comfortable! I could just move in!

Stayed here for a week long conference. The hotel was very clean and our double room was quite large. It is a short walk uphill from union square - yay. Decorations were all very interesting - marine memorabilia.

I loved that there was a room mini-fridge, free breakfast (one type of breakfast meat a day, fresh pastries, fruit, etc), & free happy hour. Their orange juice was super delicious. Don't forget money for tips. If you don't have time for a sit down breakfast, pastries, fruit, tea, & coffee are available in the business center.

I spent a lot of time studying for class on this trip and the business office or library were fabulous places for that.

My only complaint: The last night, there was some huge party upstairs. Since we were the topmost floor with hotel rooms, the noise came through super loud - The DJ had the base at ridiculous levels. The front desk did offer to upgrade us to a larger suite that was quiet. Very nice staff :)

At night, the street noise was really noticeable to me - not uncomfortable/bothersome, just noticeable - but keep in mind that I'd just spent the last year living in relatively rural Fairbanks.

Room Tip: Higher rooms probably have less street noise but you may get noise (overly loud base) that travels d...
