Eddie was the most welcoming and his enthusiasm and friendliness definitely added the the stay. Not only were we given a wonderful room, the staff and hotel were dog-friendly by even providing treats, dog bags, a dog mat, and bowl. The hotel exceeded my expectations.

Took a chance on The Marker and was impressed. Not like some of the more chic and modern boutique hotels in SF, but more homey and comfortable. Only special request was for a room away from the noise of Geary Street. They found a perfect room mid way in the building on an upper floor.

From the moment we pulled up the service was unbelievable. Philip at the front desk made it a like home experience! This place is outstanding and if you haven't been here then you need to be! They have a free wine tasting in the early evening to get the night started, a beautiful restaurant, and a elegant bar. From someone...

Accommodations were fine (great shower!), staff was the best, location was excellent; amenities were good. Wasn't crazy about the $22/day compulsory "amenities fee," but the amenities were such that I didn't object to paying it at the end of our stay. We especially enjoyed the social hour at 5 each evening and also used the business center and the gym...

Enjoyed our SF night at The Marker! Staff was and friendly and always willing to help. Loved walking my dog through Union Square (2 blocks away) and having brunch at Jones, 1 block away! I always choose boutique hotels, this was a great experience!

This is a fantastic boutique hotel, well appointed, comfortable and most importantly a staff that cares about the guests experience! Check in was pleasant, the free wine hour is a real treat and small perks like internet that works without log in hassle is nice when traveling for business. The location is great I will be back again!

This is a terrific boutique hotel; beautifully redone, centrally located, reasonably priced. The staff was personable and engaging - knew the area well and offered several spot on recommendations from walking routes to shopping to dining. Definitely worthy of a do-over!
