A great place to stay in San Francisco
The Marker is a great boutique hotel adjacent to the Union Square area of San Francisco. I stayed there the first weekend of January 2019 with my girlfriend. The room was nice. Our room did not have much of a view but is to be expected staying where we were. They offered free WiFi. We did not turn on the television but a modern television was in the room. The shower in the bathroom was amazing. High pressure and very warm. The room was pretty clean. I did not notice any issues at all. The location of the hotel might give pause to some, but we experienced no problems and any person with any common sense at all should not either. We did not spend much time at the hotel, but they its very spacious and they have multiple areas to lounge around, including a room that they serve wine in every evening. We had a drink at the hotel bar/restaurant and it was moderately priced and delicious. There is ample amazing places nearby to get a drink or eat. For drinks, I highly recommend Bourbon and Branch or Mikkeler which are both a short walk away from the hotel. The hustle and bustle of Union Square is a few blocks away as well.

Very Good8.0
Great location
We had a wonderful stay. We were disappointed that the first night they did not have their nightly wine tasting, but other than that it was great. Wonderful location, very clean, and comfortable.
