  • Top notch hotel. Quiet showers and AC. Friendly staff. Super clean and comfortable. Great value for the money. I had a question about a charge and they got promptly back to me after leaving a voice mail.

  • Loved the Marker hotel, clean, friendly staff and very convenient location, 2 blocks from Union Square! The happy hour from 5-6 with live local musicians was a plus!! Definitely recommend this hotel!!

  • Very nice rooms, very clean and modern. However they are pretty small and we literally have a view of the dumpsters. Additionally, the $22 resort fee is a bit absurd. The area it is in is a little scary, though there are many other nice hotels and restaurants on the street. It is clearly an area in transition.

  • Good location. The hotel has a trendy look. They offer happy hour at the lounge of the hotel every day: free beer and wine. Rooms are small but tidy. Would stay here again. Fair $ for the service, room and location you get.

  • The Market is conveniently located, and the staff were extremely courteous. My issue with this location is their effort to gouge you at every turn. Bottle of water? $6. Brought your own? Can't use the refrigerator in the room to keep it cool. Upon checkout, I was informed of a $20 "amenities fee," a hidden cost of which I was previously unaware. I know these issues are not unique to The Marker, but I still find them unacceptable.
