    Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square

    One of the best hotels in San Francisco


    Through the years I've stayed at most of the well know hotels in San Francisco, and I would have to rate the Pan Pacific as one of the best.

    The hotel is elegant, dignified and classy, but in an understated way.

    None of the hussle and bussle you often see at some of the other large SF hotels. The service has always been top notch...from the parking attendant, bellman, front desk staff, bartender, etc....all the service employees have been wonderful. I usually ask for one of the larger king rooms on the upper floors with a view of the city. Great marble bathrooms w/separate show and bath, and a TV. Parking is expensive as is the case throughout SF.

    Great Hotel!


    The hotel was located in the heart of Union Square. The rooms were nice and clean. It was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was large and nicely decorated with a color tv. The service was excellent. Valet parking was great....nice and courteous. Butler service was a nice bonus! I would recommend this hotel!

    The best I've stayed at


    Loved it, everyone was professional, room was great. Will stay here everytime I come to San Francisco.

    Elegant Hotel


    Great hotel, good location block from Union Sq.Lots of Asian type decor. Great restaurant, the Pacific (high side) delicious food and good service.Staff at hotel especially bell boys, valets, car service exceptional. Reception could stand some improvement and the bathrooms were on the small side and no coffee machine. A very pleasant stay with great internet rates.

    One nagging complaint


    Yes, this is a wonderful hotel. It's clear from the start that one is staying in a very elegant, yet still comfortably casual hotel. The breakfast buffet is incredible - the absolute best granola I've ever eaten. BUT, one thing did bother me. I had a small queen room which was rather small, though the bathroom area was quite nice. What I found quite bothersome was the chairs in the room. It sounds quite petty, but they weren't arm chairs and if you want to watch TV for any extended time, it becomes extremely uncomfortable. Checking their website on later occasions, I noticed that they use arm chairs as part of an upgraded room. Come on! I've stayed in budget hotels which featured a very comfortable arm chair. For what I paid at the Pan-Pac during my stay, I think they could have included an arm-chair.

    Fantastic hotel in every way


    Excellent hotel. First class service, great room, fabulous bathroom. Free apples and oranges. House car was a great benefit.

    Bose Radio overkill


    This is generally a beautiful hotel. We've stayed there three times. First two vists were very nice. then they put bose radios in rooms and the bass reverberated through the walls. It wasn't that the radio ws being played that loud, it's just that type of sound travels through walls easily. Rooms did't need that kind of upgrade. They are very nice. but I apprecaite a quiet that is now missing. However, if that does't bother you their weekend specails are very attractive.

    Pan Pacific


    Had a great stay at the Pan pacific. The staff was the friendliest I have encountered. Our standard Queen room was very satisfactory, however the matress was "bowed" for lack of a different word and the cover blanket was well worn. The large bathroon was fantastic with seperate tub and shower stall. Beware - overnight parking via the valet is $38.00 for standard size cars, $44.00 for SUVs(!)

    Pan Pacific


    Stayed September 2002, beautiful hotel, rooms clean, good service, TV in bathroom a nice touch, easy walking distance of Union Square and cable cars to Fishermans Wharf, buses to Golden Gate Bridge etc.

    Pan Pacific - WOW!


    The Pan Pacific Hotel, situated in Union Square San Francisco is a fabulous place to stay while in the city. Convenient and elegant, the staff are entirely professional and cater to your every need.

    ... ride we had was the trolley bus to the world famous Fisherman's Wharf Pier 39, this pier housed restaurants, arcades, ice cream parlours and souvenir shops, lots going on with musicians and magicians.
    We booked up at Pier 33 for a ferry ride to Alcatraz for tomorrow before making our way back through the financial district by trolley bus and had Soup in a roll for dinner and Sue had this massive ice cream from Ghirardelli, a well known ice cream and chocolate parlour. ...

You do all this online, are guided to the cars location by a GPS on your phone, and then use your ...

    Then today, I took Dad on a tour of Stanford campus. I showed him all of the buildings that I have classes in and my department headquarters. We're having really beautiful weather here right now so it was great to walk around.

    ... we even got close to it! After going over a skybridge and escalators, we made it to the Air Train. The train was very convenient. The Air Train is like an elevated subway (but nicer) which makes stops all over the airport. We took it to the car rental area. We rented from Dollar a black Dodge Charger. It was very sporty and luckily didn't smell at all like smoke after the initial 'new car' air freshener wore off. We were driving out ...
