S.F. Marriott Marquis Well Connected for Meetings

It’s apropos that the newly renovated San Francisco Marriott Marquis is well connected, both technologically and with its meeting-focused South of Market neighbors.

Marriott Marquis, located in San Francisco’s ever-growing tech hub, is fresh off a multimillion-dollar renovation. It is one of the launch properties for Marriott Hotels’ integrated mobile services, which include the following:

Red Coat Direct, which enables meeting planners to make updates and requests via their mobile devices for real time responses.

-Mobile check-in and check-out for stress-free hotel arrivals and departures.

Mobile guest services app, which allows guests to make requests for extra towels, delivery of car to front of hotel and other personal preferences via their mobile devices up to 24 hours in advance of arrival.

Marriott Marquis offers 1,500 guest rooms and suites, and 117,000 sq. ft. of meeting and banquet space. Attendees will love newly renovated View Lounge, located on the hotel’s 39th story. This spacious, trendy venue can hold up to 300 for private events, which is perfect for offsite functions during conventions at Moscone Center.

New Three-Property Meeting Solution

The Marriott has teamed up with Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco and the Park Central San Francisco, A Starwood Hotel to create a new meeting-friendly collaboration called SOMA One Connection. By sharing resources and connections, the three properties can accommodate large groups that need up to 1,500 guest rooms per night in San Francisco’s meetings center.

“It’s all about offering choices, customization and convenience to our customers,” says Frank Manchen, director of sales and marketing for Marriott Marquis. “SOMA One Connection provides a very appealing one-stop-network of 2,453 guest rooms and suites, and flexible indoor and outdoor space to host events for groups of 10 to 2,000 people.”

Nearby Moscone Convention Center is breaking ground on a $500 million expansion on Thursday, adding to meeting infrastructure in this popular event destination.
