“Fantastic location--great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

Got a terrific rate on this fine hotel, and enjoyed our long weekend stay immensely. Room was nicely sized. clean and beautifully decorated, with a comfortable (requested) King -sized bed with great pillows. Fine quality overall, made all the more enjoyable given the price and location.

Short walk to Chinatown, Union Square, Grace Cathedral. Next door to the Top of the Mark (for high afternoon tea or drinks) and across the street from the Fairmont's Tonga Room. Cable cars at your doorstep (North Beach restaurants are a reasonable downhill walk, nice cable car ride uphill "home"). Service was great.

Did hear the cable cars a bit (we were on the "outside", but not on the street side), but didn't bother us. TV great, chair lacked supportive padding. In room coffee great, room service and minibar prices borderline outrageous (no nearby cafe's or breakfast spots that we noticed). Shower water pressure weak, and shower head low. Didn't use the on-site bar/restaurant (looked attractive).

Having stayed on Union Square and near Fisherman's Wharf, I would come back to this Nob Hill location and recommend it highly to all, if the price is/stays right for you.

Room Tip: King size bed rooms limited. View rooms likely come with cable car noise (a bit charming, but perhap...

I have stayed at this hotel three times in the past two years and we always have a lovely room, comfortable, quiet...one time we had a room overlooking California and it was a tad noisy with the cable cars but overall nicely appointed, spacious, clean rooms and comfy beds.On our most recent visit the hotel accommodated a late request for a room with two beds, high floor and quiet and we overlooked an interior courtyard - perfect. Reception is always friendly as were all staff members we encountered. Breakfast was quite good although there are numerous, fabulous restaurants every where you turn so I'd recommend dining out. Back to the room - the beds were very comfortable, clean and lots of pillows. The bathroom had a sliding door and separate toilet/shower room. Long vanity and sink area with hanging space at the end - it worked well for two people.The location is really perfect since you walk out of the hotel and turn right a few steps to one of the main line cable cars. Or, you can simply walk down to the wharf - a great walk and leads you right to an incredible farmer's market. Take the cable car back up the hill or a cab. I took a cable car very back from North Beach quite late and felt very safe. The hotel also has a workout area and a business center. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: Simply request a room on a higher floor on the interior so you do not get placed in a room overlooki...

Travelled to SF for a long weekend. Hotel has a great location atop Nob Hill at California and Powell Streets. Two cablecar lines intersect. The rooms are to the high quality you expect from Marriott/Renissance brands. The rooms are large. Seven pillows, comfy beds. Concierge Lounge closed on weekends which is understandable. No coffee in lobby. You can buy it at the bar. Business center closed until 8:00 AM on Monday. Internet connection available in lobby, $ 7.50 for the first 15 minutes. They are little things but they detract from the Marriott "we love our Rewards Member" experience. Oddly it did not feel like it had a lobby - friends explained it was an apartment building at some point in the past, then convetred to a hotel. That would explain the low ceilings on the ground floor. Very little to compain about, it's just not the perfect Marriott experience you come to expect.

Room Tip: Hotel is built around a large central open core. Ideally you want a city view facing out.

I stayed at The Renaissance for a business trip and was extremely pleased. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and welcoming, which made the stay even better. I would definitely recommend this hotel for business and leisure travelers.

Our family of three stayed here in March 2012 for the weekend. Good rates, friendly and excellent service, delicious bed, great clean, quiet and pretty room....close to everything and staff was helpful with taxis and directions. Also ate at their restaurant and ordered room service....very good food and prices were average and expected. Good value for rate/money and we will stay here again.
