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.
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.
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.
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.

This is the first day that we woke to rain, which for the locals is a relief as they are in the middle of a drought, for us though it was not looked upon so fondly as we were off to visit Alcatraz.
The boys were meet at the school by Mr. Daryl Lilley who went with the bus, while the parents and other staff walked or taxied down to Pier 33. By the time we all meet the rain was starting to fall heavily so every one ...
Washing on holiday sucks! We pretty much washed everything before we move on to Seattle, very muchly needed after Yosemite but still a pain in the ****! However after we got that out of the way, we caught a tram!! It was a little scary and we saw a man get a little angry and use the term *************, but that seems to be the norm in America! We caught the tram from start to finish then caught a bus to Steiner Street, and if you ...
... significantly, we had a fantastic night with Cammie, her husband Tony and their three kids Morgan, Sienna and Anthony. The kids were amazing - best friends after five minutes, inseparable by the time we had to go home. Amy especially loved Teeny, Sienna's pet hamster! So American! It was great to catch up with Cammie again after 20 years - she hadn't changed, still as lovely and hospitable as always. We eventually got home around 11pm, very tired but very happy that we'd had a great ...
... there twice, the first time was on Wednesday afternoon. The conference dinner was taking place at EMP, right under the Space Needle. So we went a bit earlier to go up the Space Needle! What a view! I was lucky that it was a clear day :) I'll try to attach a pic once I post this so u can see for yourself. After that we went to the conference dinner at EMP.. Special is the best word to describe that venue. And ...
... graduated, lots of people came to send me off and two said nice things about me over a microphone. I said to Annette I felt I was at my own funeral. All that was missing was me over in the corner cooling my heels in a pine box. Anyway I still can't resist a microphone so hopefully I'll get an opportunity to deliver last nights speech next Saturday.I realized today that I have known and loved Simon for over 20 years now. (And Annette, Larry and Gavo too of ...
