San Francisco Marriott Marquis Review
The distinctive design of this 40-story hotel has been compared to a parking meter and a jukebox—and after a massive renovation in 2013—the public spaces and guest rooms have received attention as well. 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. There's a Starbucks in the lobby as well as Bin 55, a low-lit bar, and Mission Grill steakhouse. 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, which is close to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Yerba Buena Gardens complex. Renovated rooms, decorated in tasteful neutrals consistent with the Marriott brand, cater to the business set with a host of technological amenities, ergonomic chairs, city views, and wide desks.
