JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square
Travel Blogs from San Francisco
as soon as i sat in my seat on the plane to SF, the dude next to me swore under his breath and i saw that he'd lost one of the plastic round things at the end of his earphones...so i grabbed my little headphone pouch and offered him one of my spares (who the **** has spares?!?)...so he thanked me and we chatted...THEN the people behind us in the …
After months of planning, I finally start my journey across the Pacific with a flight from Houston to San Francisco. The weather forecast for Houston looked like there would be thunderstorms rolling in the late afternoon, so I left work early and took an earlier flight (as an added bonus I would get to San Francisco earlier).
Our guide in San Francisco was the son of our close friend who had first encouraged us to establish Skyeskyns in 1983. Niels, history editor at the University of California Press, brilliantly managed to draw many of the threads of our epic trip together.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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(!)
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.
