San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 1, 2010
Jazz and autumn might not seem like they have much in common, but in San Francisco, the two are almost synonymous. The months of October and November see some of the world’s best jazz performers gather in the city for the San Francisco Jazz Festival. Since 1983, SFJAZZ has organized what the London Observer has called “probably the best Jazz Festival in the world.” Dozens of performances at a variety of venues take place across San Francisco. The Marriott Hotel at Union Square puts guests within a few minutes of many of the festival stages, and its location on the cable car lines helps guests navigate the city with easy. Guests interested in attending the world’s preeminent jazz festival are encouraged to book early at the Union Square Marriott Hotel as availability, particularly on weekends, is limited.
The San Francisco Jazz Festival takes listeners across the world and history of jazz music: from classical to avant-garde and everything in between. Similarly, the music is played in a variety of different settings in an attempt to match both crowd size and jazz style. Atmospheric nightclubs, large coliseums, cathedrals, synagogues and more open their doors to the jazz faithful. Traveling from venue to venue becomes a virtual tour of not only jazz music but the city itself.
And San Francisco has a lot to offer. The iconic Golden Gate Bridge, infamous Alcatraz Prison, Ghirardelli Square, bustling Fisherman’s Wharf and an untold number of sights and attractions fill the San Francisco Bay Area. Guests staying at the Union Square Marriott Hotel have a great opportunity to explore the city while enjoying comfortable accommodations and signature Marriott hospitality. The Union Square Marriott is the perfect location for jazz enthusiasts and sightseers—or both!
