A Landmark Since 1946


For more than seventy years San Francisco’s Marines’ Memorial Club has stood in honor of the memory of the men and women who served in defense of our nation. Since 1946, Marines’ Memorial Club has honored the legacy of military service through a living memorial, hotel and theatre that both serve and commemorate the Veterans of all eras. Providing exceptional San Francisco lodging and dining with spectacular city views, our Club stands out as both a landmark and a hospitality institution.

The flagship Marines’ Memorial Club is located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, just off Union Square and the cable cars. This handsome Beaux Arts-style building offers an inviting club atmosphere that is rich with history, honor and pride. Owned and operated by the Marines’ Memorial Association, a 501(c) (19) Veterans Non-Profit Organization, Marines’ Memorial Club is the first ever “Living Memorial” in the United States, offering historic exhibits featuring American military history from all eras, and a library and museum with artifacts and books donated by grateful members, Veterans and their families.

The club offers 138 first class guestrooms, elegant and spacious suites, a rooftop restaurant and bar, the 564-seat Marines’ Memorial Theatre, once home to the legendary Actors’ Workshop, and exquisite ballrooms for meetings and special events. The Club does not charge a Resort Fee or an Early Departure Fee. Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel is the ideal choice among San Francisco Union Square hotels for leisure travel, social gatherings and reunions as well as corporate meetings and events and welcomes club members and guests.

Membership in the Marines’ Memorial Club is open to all former, active duty and Veterans who served honorably in all branches of the United States Armed Forces.

Since 2005, by virtue of Veterans’ and supporters of the mission, the Association is able to offer free annual membership to all Currently Serving members of the US Armed Forces who join the Club.

In 2015, the Marines’ Memorial Association established the Marines’ Memorial Foundation, a 501(c) (3) Charitable Organization, in support of efforts to expand the ability of Veterans and Patriot Supporters to contribute to and participate in helping us achieve our mission.

“I mean, WOW!”

I mean, WOW! The service is unforgettable in this hotel. This might be a 3-star hotel but the service makes it feel like a 5-star. When you walk in you’re greeted by staff immediately after walking into their grand foyer. The place is packed with memorabilia and facts about our servicemen and women. They have upgraded some feature such as the elevator that will take you directly to your floor, no need to stop on different floors for other people to catch the elevator.

The rooms are nice. We had a corner room that gave us views on two sides of the room. The room also comes with robes that you can use during your visit. While the bathroom sinks seem to be newer, the showers could use an upgrade but they’re not bad. Room service comes everyday or when you request it and they do an excellent job.

There’s free breakfast which is not your typical continental breakfast, this was the real deal! Some days you order and are served and some days they have a buffet. Breakfast is served from 730-930 am. They have a daily happy hour from 4-6pm with very strong drinks! You can order just about anything.

This hotel is our go-to while staying in SF because we know that we’ll be treated kindly and have a nice clean place to rest. It’s also located in the middle of everything in Union Square and at the bottom of Nob Hill. If you’re up to it, you could walk the city from this location. – Jasmine W. (via Yelp)

Support Veteran services. . .

If you are a veteran or would like to support veteran services please visit while in San Francisco. The restaurant/bar and the staff are phenomenal. Go in for a happy hour cocktail and gaze out wall of windows into the city below. Follow it up seated in the dining room with some appetizers a bottle of wine and the prime rib. – Bobby O.

The staff at the Marines Memorial were the BEST.

Monica V. posted on Yelp – The staff at the Marines Memorial were the BEST. Lisa was very helpful getting our son’s wedding reception put together. We have been to many events at the Hotel over the years and that is why we chose their venue for his reception. The Beauty and history of the hotel makes for a great setting. The Staff is exceptional. Kiirsti who oversaw the event that evening was very hands on and professional through out the event. Everything went very smoothly. The food was excellent and the whole staff did a Great job! Thank you for such a memorable event.

Hands down one of the best venues and hotels in the city!

Posted on Yelp – My wife and I held our wedding reception, and had nothing but the most attentive and detail oriented service from Lisa Jimenez and Kiirsti Heon. Both were extremely flexible, communicated often and made this a stressful day for both the bride and groom. The Commandants Room is very spacious and daunting, but the MMC did amazing job setting a romantic atmosphere for our guest. The food? Devine. We choose the buffet to give our guest options, and each one of the sides and entrees were flavorful, fresh and perfectly seasoned. The staff working that night were responsive and extremely efficient. We stayed 3 nights at the hotel and were spoiled with fantastic amenities, attentive hotel staff and were minutes away from shops, restaurants and site-seeing locations in the city. Due to the height of surround buildings, there’s not much of a view from the room, but the hotel is decorated with pictures and monuments celebrating the service of Americans finest. Book your wedding here. It will not disappoint! ~ Marc G.

One of San Francisco’s Best Hidden Gems!

10/18/2018 – I’m not ever sure where to begin with this review. My HUSBAND (still going to take some time to get used to saying that!) and I tied the knot at the Marine Memorial Club in the Commandant’s Ballroom on Saturday, October 13, 2018. The staff completely blew our vision and the entire event out of the water, and everyone was SO on top of it from the very beginning of the pre-planning to the final execution of the very last moment of the night– and even into the next morning when it was time to gather up everything to head out! It was perfect, to be honest. And coming from me, a total OCD, perfectionist Project Manager for a large commercial real estate firm– I definitely don’t use these words loosely! Our wedding was, without a doubt, the very best day of our lives. It was unbelievable. The entire team was so on point. Once the big day began, all my stressors that had built up over months and months of ironing out every single detail melted away. And they made it all seem so effortless.

I couldn’t be happier that we picked the MMC as our wedding venue. We also love that it is such a beautiful hotel; we can’t wait to come stay again and reminisce. We’re going to try to stay for a couple nights for our one-year anniversary in October of 2019! So many of our guests voiced that it was “the best wedding they had ever been to”. I will be raving about the wedding and the MMC for years to come.

I also want to personally recognize Lisa Jimenez and Kiirsti Heon, and pass along my sincere thanks and gratitude for all their help over the past year. I couldn’t have done it without them. They not only got things done quickly and efficiently, but with a smile and wonderfully positive attitude.

The MMC is one of San Francisco’s best hidden gems in my opinion, and I’ve lived here my entire life. I will most definitely be back to the Leatherneck Steakhouse for a nice dinner with my new husband, and can’t wait for our next stay in the hotel suite. THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR LITTLE MARRIED HEARTS! 🙂 – Marisa + Johnny

Great location with special perks!

We hosted a board meeting here over three days. Board members from across the country all agreed that the Marines Memorial was a beautiful hotel that offered fantastic food, beautiful meeting rooms, fantastic service!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and meetings here. They are so helpful, make sure of every detail, are able to make changes on the fly… and are so nice as well! The location is so handy to walk to Union Square, Chinatown and more. The buffet breakfast is great and changes daily so you don’t get bored. The cocktail hour is a great perk that most places don’t offer. – MsSantitam, Santa Cruz, CA (May 2018)


We had a wonderful 3 night stay here. The staff super friendly, the hotel super clean,and in a great location. No foo foo decor here, the hotel is nicely decorated in a masculine theme…of course. Each floor has it’s own Marine theme, please spend some time looking through all the memorabilia and tributes honoring those who served. The free breakfast was delicious and expansive with a nice view of the city from the top floor dining room. free happy hour there daily as well. The included health club access is not your usual small hotel workout room, it’s a full blown gym with all the amenities. All this for a very reasonable price, I can’t recommend this hotel enough, it’s a real winner.

Great experience!

Had a great stay at the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel in San Francisco. This hotel is very centrally located and beautifully decorated with USMC pride. Their restaurant and bar overlooks the city and every aspect of the hotel pays tribute to the Marine Corps. There is live piano music with dinner. We were upgraded to the executive suite, which had a full board room style table, sitting area, desk, mini fridge, king size bed, and very large bathroom with the toilet and big tub separate from the sink and closet area. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were provided in built-in pumps; lotion, makeup remover wipe, and soap were also provided separately in the bathroom. Overall, a great experience!

This Hotel is Amazing!

This hotel is amazing and has everything a guest could need and more!
1. Great location- in Union Square , close to cable car and shopping.
2.Clean hotel and courteous staff
3. Amazing views especially from the rooftop restaurant
4. Spacious rooms, but don’t miss the hidden safe and mini fridge that are built into the dresser (like we did)
5. Complementary happy hour, bar area is quite small so get there early.
6. Amazing hot breakfast! wish I had pictures of it but did not want to invade anybody while they ate;) breakfast bar had many, many choices. For example: made to order omelettes, fresh fruit, pastries, biscuits and gravy, cereal, sausage, bacon, hashbrowns. Just to name a few.
7. Onsite gym, museum, theater, business center,etc.

The View is Spectacular!

I treated my Husband and myself to two nights in a suite for John’s birthday, which is also our Wedding Anniversary! We had a wonderful time! Clean, comfortable rooms, complete with “spa robes”! We ordered room service both evenings, as I had a slight cold(didn’t affect my appetite!).
Delicious calamari, cioppino, prime rib, garlic fries perfectly crispy, retro iceberg wedge salad to-die-for…
I swam in the crystal clear pool to work off some calories!
Sarge in Reception is so polite, friendly and efficient! He is a real asset to MMC!
Alex, the concierge is also charming!
We have joined the Club and we definitely will return!
P.S. The breakfast and the view is spectacular!- Maureen D.

A Must Stay For Marines; Everyone else: All I can say is you need to experience it!

An awesome hotel, but focus on the “Memorial” part . . . . awesome historical artifacts . . . great view of the city from the restaurant . . . AWESOME breakfast! Very clean, excellent employees (particularly the concierge), and did I say AWESOME breakfast . . . included in the cost, which is very reasonable for downtown San Francisco.
