Lovely hotel near hospital. There is NO VALET service so you need to drive down an alley, pull into a hole in the wall, push the intercom button and then talk to someone at the front desk who will confirm your reservation and open the gate into the parking. Just hope you are given street level parking because if your car is large trying to fit into one of the Mini Cooper size stalls on the lower level parking is difficult after which you will need to haul your luggage up two flights of stairs, walk across the upper level outdoor parking and then push the intercom again so they can let you in. And no, you can’t use the elevator to go to the lobby (room key needed) so you need to haul your luggage up another two flights of stairs. Not explained on the website. “Self parking” is $50 per night. There is a door leading to “Mels Dinner” where you can eat (limited menu), okay food. Be aware that since the streets are one way and there is construction, you have to may have to make several right turns around several blocks to ‘find’ the alley where the entrance to the parking is located. The website should convey this information. The hospital parking entrance is easy to get to with a left turn onto a two way street at the end of the alley and then a left turn onto Geary where the hospital entrance is located. The decor of the hotel is lovely….vibrant….clean, gorgeous bathroom with decent shower pressure and hot water. Beds could be more comfortable.

Overall our experience at CM on Van Ness was very good. I am reviewing to help others with the parking situation. I called hotel prior to booking to confirm on-site parking (yes) and in-and-out privileges (yes). Please be aware that the parking is on two levels. If you are assigned to the lower lot, you will need to go up a short but steep set of stairs to reach upper lot, and then enter the hotel. If you have mobility issues, you should request upper level or have your traveling partner enter upper lot to drop you off first. Also, when you check out, you can no longer access elevator (because no key card) to return to parking lot. So again, if mobility issues, have someone else check you out or request staff to call elevator for you. As much of SF is on hills, this hotel is no exception. Our room had a definite slant. Not enough to bother, but if you have equilibrium issues, you will notice. Only other issue, the staff insisted that our room had the king bed we requested, but it was smaller. It may be listed as king, but it was smaller than the king in San Jose the next night, and smaller than our king at home. I would stay here again now that I know how it is set up.

My view was a wall of another hotel room. I asked for a good room, and the front desk person was actually really nice. However the room had a terrible view and it was so small, even though I paid for the "bigger" King Bed Room. Other than that, nothing spectacular about it, just a normal run of the mill hotel.

We were sound asleep at 4am and someone opened the door and entered the room. I believe it was a housekeeper but am not positive. I called the front desk and they said they had been notified and were sorry. At checkout the next day I had mentioned it and they said they would get back to me. They never did... I sent an email and they sent me an automated response and offered 2,000 bonus points. That is a laughable number of points for being disturbed at 4am when you have work the next day. I did not feel safe in that room at all and they did not rectify the situation. I am still very disappointed. I expected more from Marriott.

I traveled with a family member so they could have a surgery at the Sutter hospital across the street from the hotel. The hotel staff were courteous and went the extra mile while I was waiting for my family member. Everyone was very nice and understanding that it was not a fun trip to be on. There were guidelines for staff and guests to stay safe, taking precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic, and I felt very well cared for. Some of the amenities were closed and the hotel was not busy, but the staff were well aware of guest's feelings and took extra care to make people feel welcome.
