The Marriot Union Square in San Francisco is located on the corner of Sutter and Powell Streets about a five minute walk from the center of Union Square. The hotel is a high rise hotel and is adjacent to the section of Powell Street where Powell begins its steep climb away from Union Square towards California Street and the Russian Hill area of San Francisco. The hotel gives the appearance of being built into the side of a hill when viewing it from the Powell Street side. Most of the rooms in the hotel give guests views of San Francisco’s financial district, Union Square and San Francisco Bay. Along Powell Street is the Powell/Hyde and Powell/Mason Cable Car lines giving guests in rooms on the north side of the hotel the true San Francisco experience of hearing the “ding ding” of the Cable Car bells as they pass by making their climb or descent along Powell.
The hotel is 30 stories high making it a true San Francisco high rise (the tallest building in San Francisco, the Bank of America tower is 51 floors high). The hotel houses 347 rooms and 53 suites as well as three concierge levels. The hotel provides each of the rooms with the most up to date amenities that include high speed internet, 32 inch tvs, and luxurious pillow tops and linens. The hotel is also home to a restaurant and lounge.
Visitors to San Francisco looking to take in Union Square, China Town, Nob Hill or stroll along Market Street will find the Marriott Union Square to be an ideal accommodation. Note although its title indicates it is in Union Square, it is actually a 5-10 minute walk up a steep hill (Powell Street) from Union Square. Visitors looking to see Fisherman’s Wharf will need walk down to take a cable car (yes they can be boarded as they pass the hotel however by that point they are usually packed 9/10 times-its best just to walk down to the Powell/Market turn table) or down to Market Street where a $2.00 street car and 15 minutes later will get them to the Wharf. Visitors looking to travel to the Golden Gate Bridge from this hotel will definitely need a car unless they board a tour bus in Union Square that’s route take its to the bridge. This hotel is somewhat convenient to the financial district of San Francisco (about a 10 to 15 minute walk).
Located at the northern edge of Union Square where Powell Street begins its steep climb towards Nob Hill. Very modern building that stands out amongst the other hotels in Union Square.
