|We chose this hotel because we wanted to use marriot rewards points. We were looking for a desert vacation that offered golf, dining, and spa. The hotel was wonderful. The staff was very attentive. The spa was nice and relaxing. My husband golfed and I rode along. |
We had excellent concierge service. She helped us book dinner reservations and get great tickets to see a Cirque du Soleil.
Overall, it was a wonderful, wonderful vacation and we would defnitely go back!
|If you are tired of the "Las Vegas Strip Scene", or don't care for the Mega Casino Resorts, this is the place to go. Summerlin is 20 minutes from the Strip, so if you want the experience the hotel has a shuttle to take you there and back. |
This hotel has wonderful rooms, great beds, and unparralled service. The Marriott owned areas of the resort (Marriott does not own the Casino Area) are immaculate. The Spa and Pools are relaxing and the enviornment is a different Las Vegas than you are probably used to.
The casino is quaint and nice. The staff is very friendly, and it is attended by many locals. The buffet is average, and the Irish Pub is Awesome. Live music and great food at the Pub make it a must when I stay at the hotel. They also have a sushi bar, cigar bar, and great italian restaurant.
If you have not been to Las Vegas, then by all means you are not ready for this hotel - GO TO THE STRIP - but if you frequent Las Vegas for work or are looking for a different Las Vegas experience - nothing beats the JW Marriott.
And, if you are looking for a Golf Getaway - there is no other place to stay than the JW Marriott. It has a great course, and is in the heart of Las Vegas' best golf courses.
|My sister and I had our first ever sisters' getaway (she in her late 20s, I in my early 30s - better late than never!) at this fantastic resort hotel over Memorial Day Weekend 2007. The resort itself was beautiful and well kept. The food was great (although a little pricey, but what can you expect?!), the room/bath was clean, and the service was impressive. They even had daily complimentary water bottles in the lobby for hotel guests. We enjoyed sunbathing around the huge pool. Although the pool area got crowded as the day went on, we did notice how much more laid back and relaxed the environment was compared to the pool environments of the strip hotels, which always seemed hectic and jam-packed like sardines - no exaggeration! I had a great massage at the spa. The workout facility was top-notch - the machines and fitness equipment rivaled that of high-quality health clubs. The workout facility even offered a variety of fitness classes. The concierge was very helpful - they gave us a back route to the strip as we had a rental car. Therefore we were able to avoid major traffic and usually made it to the strip in about 15 minutes. Although we didn't play golf, the course looked impeccable. I almost felt guilty for not taking my hubby! I would definitely visit this property again. It's great for couples, families, and of course, a sisters' getaway!|
|My husband booked this hotel online. I think he initially found it on Expedia. Seeing as he did the booking, he didn;t do my usual Tripadvisor research, so I have to say, given the price was $250 for 2 nights (very cheap by SF standards), I was a bit nervous.|
How wrong I was. The place is adorable, We paid a few extra dollars in the original booking for a Jefferson suite. It had a kig sized bed, separate lounge room with a desk, big tv (also one in the bedroom). I felt like I had stumbled into a secret place.
Powell St Station (BART and MUNI) is around the corner, as are all the major department stores (which are open til 8pm).
Downstairs (lobby area) there is a lounge with free wine and cake from 5-6pm and free breakfast is all included in the price.
The room even had a fridge!
This place is definitely on my list of places to come back to, but don't tell too many people, they may put the prices up!
|My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and cannot fault it. If you are staying in San Francisco you could not want for a better hotel. It is in a great location, has friendly staff and excellent hotel suites. |
We went for a meal at the hotel restaurant, which I would also recommend. I'm a vegan and the waiter went out of his way to make sure everything was okay for me to eat. He was also incredibly helpful with the wine list and the food was delicious.
The little extras which the hotel provides also added to a perfect stay and all for a very affordable price.
|We stayed at the Monticello Inn for Labor Day weekend. We were 2 couples each with our own room. Upon arrival we were promptly attended to and checked in quickly. Vallet took our vehicle and we headed up to our room. The street it is located on is (Ellis) runs into Powell which is the main street the Trolleys run up and down. This hotel is located in Union Square, your really are in the middle of a great shopping center! Each side you walk you've got shops Adidas, Puma, Bloomingdale's, etc etc! A+ for Location!|
Once we entered our room, the only negative thing about this whole expreience was the smell of Freshly baked Subway Bread! Ha ha, I believe because of the way the hotel is built the center subway is one level with it's vents on there roof, there roof is also the first floor of the 5 story or so hotel, so it vents into the shaft of sorts and straight into your a/c unit. Big woop! Seeing as we don't like to hibernate in our room when this city is alive, it didn't bother us one bit, except when you woke up in the morning crazy a sandwhich (he he).
We reserved a one Bedroom Suite. Upon entering it we were surprised to see how roomy it was. You first enter a living room with a miniature refrigerator, big enough to fit a 2-liter and some can drinks. The Tv is a good sized tv, everything is clean and neat. The couch is comfy as well as the Chair. They have these gorgeous Bay windows with seats built all around it so you can absorb the light if you so choose, cause there isn't much of a view! The bedroom is completley seperate from the living room, there is a door that divides it ( not too common with suites) The decor is exactly as it appears on the website, the stripes look overbearing at first but they are not I assure you! The bed was very comfterble, the sheets where clean. It was very pleasant. The bathroom had a Shower tub Combo, clean as well, no rust or grime build up. This room was a perfect gathering space for us and our friends, seeing as they had gotten a standard room I did look at it and it was very spacious as well. Enjoy the Pictures and the hotel, it is in an incredible location!
|I booked the Monticello Inn for my family, after reading the positive reviews written here, and was very glad I did. Our suite was huge with two TV's & even bath robes. The concierge went out of his way to get us on our city tour, as we were running a bit late. The location is superb with tram stops & shopping right there. Everything was clean and lovely and I couldn't recommend it enough. Also the best coffee can be found around the corner in the Westfield Centre at Peet's Coffee....|
|Excellent little hotel, ideally located downtown. Friendly staff, price is all right, rooms are quite small but not really a problem in SF (who stays locked in a hotel room when you are in such a stunning city?). The complementary breakfast is fine (provided that you like the black, hot liquid they call "coffee" in the U.S) and there is a "wine hour" sort of thing in the late afternoon in the lobby, which is really great. The only downside is that our first room was on Gery street (2d Floor) and we just could not sleep, given the strange, screaming noctambulous population of downtown SF (windows of the front rooms were apparently taken from the wreck of the Titanic and not insulated at all). We just asked for a quieter room the day after, and were kindly moved to the rear rooms with view on the courtyard (with fully insulated, new windows this time, don't ask me why). I wil ldefinitely stay again at the Monticello when in SF.|
|We stayed here for a week in 2006. Fantastic hotel, beds are really comfortable. No complaints!|
|I stayed at the JW just before Thanksgiving, a veeeery quiet period for the hotel. The room was not remodeled, and will benefit from an updating, but it was clean, well maintained and very comfortable -- particularly the bed and desk chair (and how unusual is that!) The bathroom is marvelous. Unlike some reviewers, I found the service attentive. I don't use hotel services much, but when I asked for assistance, it was prompt and courteous. Did not use the restaurants; the bar was nice, but pricey -- hey, it's SF. Location is great. I usually stay at the SF Marriott on 4th. This is clearly a grade up in style and attention, but both are terrific properties, with wonderful locations. If a first time visitor or someone still doing mostly touristy stuff, I might actually give the edge to the hotel on 4th because of the very close proximity to the Fl ine! If you've been to SF before, choose this one for a touch more luxury.|
|We visit San Francisco at least once a year, but twice last year. For the first time we stayed at this hotel. We had been staying at the Donatello, across the street, but a price comparison indicated that the Marriott rooms were less than the Donatello's patio rooms. Thus we elected this J.W. Marriott.|
We admired the hotel when it was the Pan Pacific. It's windows and architecture are unique. The open atrium remains stunning. The street entry is nicely protected from weather. We found the personnel at the entry very helpful and accommodating and they stored my golf clubs without hesitation, retrieving them at my request and without delay. They made arrangements for a limo to SFO upon our departure and it was ready and waiting right on time.
We asked for a high room and received one. We looked at one of the redecorated rooms on the west perimeter of the structure and found it extraordinary, though it was not then available to us. Renovation continued on the top floors.
Our room view was onto Mason. It was very nice and quite clean. We guessed, but do not know, that many of the oriental housekeeping staff were retained when the hotel changed hands. They are top notch! The furnishings, though certainly not new, were in good condition and clean. All furnishings worked well. We requested an additional luggage rack and it arrived almost immediately. As we do not dine in our rooms, we cannot otherwise comment on room service, but when we left the hotel in the mornings, generally early, we simply spotted one of the housekeeping ladies nearby and asked for a cleaning. We never failed to find a cleaned room upon our return.
We also found the front desk personnel to be very friendly and helpful. We tend to make our reservation many months in advance, with any requests for special services, so we weren't surprising anyone on the spur of the moment. We were treated well.
We ate one supper in the hotel restaurant. It was not particularly remarkable, but, considering the available restaurants within walking distance of the front doors of the hotel, that is not surprising. The lobby bar stays open late and many visitors used it.
We enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel and have read reviews here which lament the loss of the ambiance when it was the Pan Pacific. We can appreciate that view, but what remains is still an extraordinary hotel in a wonderful location. At these prices for rooms, one has many selections throughout the city, but very few that combine the J.W.Marriott's location, ambiance, cleanliness, service and amenities.
We are returning to the San Francisco J.W. Marriott in July of this year, so we'll review our assessment after our second stay. At this point, we have little doubt that it will be just as enjoyable and we will share our pictures thereafter.
|The St. Regis is a very well located hotel in the heart of San Francisco. The atmosphere at the hotel is quite intimate with the dark wood details and fire burning in the dim lobby. Service at the hotel was very good and rooms were nice.|
Our room had big windows gazing over the city on the 16th floor. beautiful view in the night and wonderful light during the day. The super wide window sill was fun to sit on and enjoy the view. Overall the room was quite spacious and comfortable. Apparently all the rooms have a remote appliance used to control things like lighting, drapes (both roman and darkening), the phone etc. its located next to the bed though, I think I managed to call the front desk when I was half a sleep and trying to put a light on. The big widescreen TV was nice to watch, wi-fi connection was reasonably fast, though it should be at $15 a day.
the bathroom was quite spacious, though the shower located within the toilet area was very cold due to a very effective air vent above the toilet seat. A switch for this would be nice. the sliding glass door in the toilet was a bit over the top, it also left a nice gap through which I had a clear view to the room side. ranging from $500 to $1500, we didn't really care to try any of the champagne or rose pedal bubble baths but maybe someone will. A random thing I happened to pay attention to was the A/C in the hallways, it was extremely cold in there!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the St. Regis and I can't really think of anything to complain about except the chilly toilet and hallway. oh and the hallway carpets, whats up with those..? they look like a sack of coal was dragged there. well, it was a very nice and hip hotel with a good location and friendly service.
|This was the former Park Hyatt Hotel in San Francisco. Recently the hotel changed hands and is now Le Meridien. It's a perfect business location in the heart of the financial district and near the embarcadero. Business travelers will love the location, however leisure travelers may find it just a bit too far from the heart of the city, things like Union Square.|
The hotel's lobby feels a little cold to me. It is all marble and chrome and seems a little dated and a little sterile and cold.
However the staff is great and very helpful and warms up the cold lobby with their smiles.
The rooms are nice, they are a bit on the small side, but have nice amenties like cozy comforters and great products in the bathroom.
Some of the rooms have stunning views of the bay. We were not so lucky as our view looked into buildings and you could just make out some of the bay.
The service level was good, I personally like the location that is a little out of the hussle and bussle of the tourist mobs. However I think the lobby is dated and the hotel could use a make-over.
This is a good choice for San Francisco, but not my first choice.
|We found a low rate on Travelocity. Contacted Le Meridien directly and got the low rate, plus another 10% off. I mentioned that it was our anniversary and asked for a room on one of the higher floors. We booked a junior suite for $135. When we arrived, we found out that we were upgraded to a full King Suite on the 24th floor. The room also had a jacuzzi tub. The view of the bay was beautiful. (Ths was a $600 room) The concierge knew our name and greeted us by name whenever we entered the lobby. Location is great and you can easily walk to Union Square and the piers. Had a wonderful stay and would love to stay there again.|
|For my first business trip to the city, I chose the environmentally friendly Orchard Garden, which was 3 blocks from my office away from home. The bed and breakfast package was a good value -- with fruit, cereals, baked goods, cheese and meats and hard boiled eggs available. Staff were very friendly, recommending a sushi restaurant 5 blocks away instead of the one across the street. Room was beautiful, clean, everything I expected of a business-class hotel. I'll be back!|
|Wow is all I can say! This was my 3rd visit here, and it just keeps getting better with each visit. The rooms are great, the amenities are nice, the Staff is incredible. The free breakfast was a treat. In the previous stays, I missed it due to my sleeping late. This time I made sure I went and ate. I love the fact the hotel is eco friendly! It was great to walk into China town, and be right there. It's very close to Union Square as well.|
|Super all around! This hotel is located at the gates to Chinatown and walking distance to great shopping in Union Square and the cable car line to Fisherman's Wharf. As you would expect in SF, small rooms that work for 1-2 adults and a baby in a crib (we brought our son with us.) His portacrib fit in the bathroom. Nice flatscreen HD Tv's, comfortable beds, Aveda toiletries. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel highly.|
|This is a beautiful, clean and comfortable hotel. But here's the problem: the climate inside the room is too dry and stuffy. I chose this hotel because of the "green" atmosphere. The rooms are powered by placing the keys inside a slot near the door. The hotel is also new and allows no smoking in any of the rooms This is a plus because you can often smell cigarette smoke through the air conditioning system. |
Because it's a new hotel, apparently the building codes do not permit any windows to open. So this place is sealed shut. I was assured that the new "state-of-the-art " AC system was able to adjust and even allow for some outside air circulation. This was certainly not the case. I had to buy a cheap humidifier at Walgreen's in an attempt to get so moisture in the room. It helped a bit. I guess I'm confused about the description of "green" and this overall phobia of outside air. Here's a green tip: you can also cut your energy costs by shutting off the AC and opening a window!
|This is a great find. It is in a perfect location, but that is not the best thing about this hotel. It is beautiful, the staff is amazing, the appointments and furnishings are lovely, the Leed Certification is the way of the future and all for an unbelievable value.|
|Nicely located hotel just up the hill from union square. It's a boutique but seems to have a lot of services of a larger hotel (never a problem getting a cab, arranged my taxi back to the airport w/o a hitch). the rooms were a good deal i thought ($200 something for a king room w/separate sitting/desk area), free wireless and a good, included, breakfast buffet. |
the furnishings seemed a little out of place (traditional when i think of boutique as more hip) but the bathrooms were huge and overall i had a great stay.
I've recommended it to others and they have stayed and enjoyed.
