Hotel Overview

Sense Of Place

Downtown San Francisco, in the heart of the city.

Rooms at The Marker

The rooms and suites at The Marker are luxurious, spacious and colourful, and come with plush beds, LCD flatscreen TVs and bars stocked with gourmet and organic treats. The suites come with large Jacuzzi tubs, and there are also some tempting in-room spa services on offer, such as hot stone massages. 

Food & Drink

Tuck into Italian favourites at Tratto, an inviting trattoria that’s popular with guests and locals alike, who are tempted by its irresistible rustic Italian cuisine and handcrafted cocktails – the bar is inspired by the Italian tradition of ‘aperitivo’, or happy hour. 


Have a post-flight workout in the fitness centre or get a yoga mat delivered to your room to get rid of that jet lag. 

Activities at The Marker

Ask the expert concierge team for their tips on what to see and do so you can make the most of your stay. Taking a ride on one of the cable cars, an enduring symbol of San Francisco, up the city’s famously hilly streets, is a must – and you can enjoy spectacular views over the bay and Alcatraz, which is also a must-see. Explore buzzing Chinatown, which is home to the largest Chinese community outside Asia. Or hire a bike from the hotel to explore – this is a lovely way of discovering the city.
Wine buffs should take a trip to the picturesque vineyards of California’s wine country – and don’t miss the hotel’s daily wine hour afterwards!
