Location was great however the facility was subpar.

Lovely San Francisco Hotel
The Marker is in a great location to be close to theater and shopping. Room was small but typical for San Francisco. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel had great decor. Our room was on the 7th floor and it was quiet. Only complaint is that parking fees in San Francisco are high so we still ended up paying additional money even after paying through, but again this is typical for SF.

Great location, friendliness and restaurant!
The Marker is a wonderful hotel in the heart of San Francisco near Union Square. The staff is so incredibly friendly, nice and helpful! The lobby decor is impeccable, colorful, energetic, with obvious attention to detail and style. Having the restaurant/bar right there in the lobby is wonderful too, especially for late nights after arriving to the hotel post-work and needing a friendly bartender to hand you a perfect night-cap & a delicious bite to eat. What I wish were more up to par is the wifi in the room and attention to detail regarding items in the room. A guest must pay their $25 per day resort fee, which includes the use of the Wifi. Two out of the 4 nights there, during my stay, the Wifi was either out or slooooooooowed to a crawl. This was a business trip for me, so having a non-reliable Wifi was not ideal. I ended up tethering my laptop to my phone, which was light speed faster. There were supposed to be slippers for two guests in the room, but there were none, and there is loads of mildew growing along the caulking of the bathroom sink. Now... I WILL stay at this beautiful and friendly hotel again, don't get me wrong!! But I will make sure to ask for reliable Wifi and for slippers and to have the bathroom more thoroughly cleaned, if I end up in the same quality room next time. These (apart from the Wifi) are all little things that a simple call to the front desk would have fixed. I was just surprised to encounter them in a 4-star hotel & pricy room that's all :)

Comfortable and Friendly Staff....
The hotel was beautiful inside and out. The rooms were nice and the bed and pillows were super comfortable. The front desk and bell hop employees were friendly and helpful. When I come back to San Francisco in the future I will see if The Marker has any openings.
