Profile: Marina District

Profile: Marina District

The Marina District is nestled between the pier of Fort Mason and the Presidio, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Crissy Field stretches along the waterfront towards the Golden Gate Bridge, and offers one of the best jogging spots in the Bay Area. Pack a picnic and relax on its small beach, or take in a concert at the Palace of Fine Arts, known for its beautiful colonnade and lake.

Buzzy local restaurants serve up everything from Pan-Asian fusion to high-end vegetarian cuisine, and well-heeled clothes horses will be thrilled at the multitude of boutiques. Union Street is the center of the district’s nightlife, and thrums with the music of dive bars and dance clubs.

    Van Ness Inn

    ROACHES! I went to the office to complain and Hament gave me RAID so I could spray. I moved rhe little fridge and drawers so I could spray the crack in the baseboard thoroughly. Hament called the manager for me and he offered a $50.00 total discount. I spent about 30 minutes spraying and wiping up the floor with toilet paper to get all the critters in the toilet so they could have a buriel at sea and be out of the room. The free parking, convenience of the location, and price are good if you do not mind some bugs. They offered to change rooms, but I told them that our room was probably more cleaner and bug free now because of my cleaning. Just changing rooms does not guarantee no more roaches. The cleaning staff needs to move furniture and the fridge to really clean and vacuum at least once a week. They also need a better pest company to get rid of unwantwd guests!

    Hilarious

    I was in room 215 and I am fairly certain that the fellow behind the counter (younger Indian fellow) was not supposed to place me in this nightmare, but surely refused to refund me for the room. I checked in at 2:30 and instantly noticed that by the rooms smell, it was not meant for me to stay in. I cracked the window and put my dead phones and iPads to charge, and went outside. At about 4pm I went back into my room and noticed that the TV didn’t work. I called the desk clerk and after about 45 minutes (around 5pm) I was finally able to jump in the shower. As I am exiting the shower i notice the following (see pictures) and all of these combined had me checking out less than an hour later. The jolly clerk then told me that he could not refund me for the stay , because I booked thru expedia. I called Hotels.com afterwards, who after contacting the property told me that they cannot refund me because the employee had not noticed these problems when he was fixing the tv. I called the police who said that they also could not force them to refund my money and I would have to speak with the owner or take them to court. I will do neither but definitely recommend training in customer service and hospitality. I expect their senses to have returned by the time I dispute the charge!

    Great place for a SF visit

    This place is great. Very near Fishermam's Wharf. Easy walk to North Beach. Right on Van Ness. Easy entry for parking and returning. Great value. I've tried other places in the area. This is the best one I've found.

    I liked that it was walking distance to the pier and the crooked street. Bonus is that you can't beat free parking in San Francisco. The downfall is the rooms could be a lot more cleaner.
