San Francisco Marriott Marquis

780 Mission St., San Francisco, California, 94103, USA

The distinctive design of this 40-story hotel has been compared to a parking meter and a jukebox, though guest rooms are all about practical comfort—decorated in tasteful neutrals consistent with the Marriott brand, they cater to the business set with a host of technological amenities, ergonomic chairs, city views, and wide desks. The centerpiece of the lobby area is a five-story, glass-top atrium enclosing a dining court; this serves as a quiet space for convention-goers to work, or an event area. The lobby Starbucks and Bin 55, a low-lit bar, and Mission Grill steakhouse, act as gathering places for convention-going techies. The top-floor View lounge has huge, fan-shaped windows with stunning views of the city. Look for artwork by Richard Diebenkorn and other major artists installed throughout the hotel.
