I live all the way in San Francisco and i’m trying to plan a wedding out here-My FI and I LOVE the way the mattress factory looks online and it’s really up our alley. Wanted to chat with anyone that recently got married there to see how it was, if you have a room you get ready in, and also the best hotel closet to there?

@megmoyn: I didn’t get married at the mattress factory, but that is where my boyfriend proposed. I really can’t give you any of the information you’re looking for, but having your wedding there would be very very unique. Good luck with the wedding planning.

There is not a room that you can get ready in at the Mattress Factory.
The space is awesome, but it’s a small space, and part of it is outdoor. They can tent it, and offer tent walls if the weather is iffy in the days leading up to your event, but that uncertainty was enough to drive me to find somewhere else.
There are a couple of bed and breakfasts in the area: The Parador Inn and The Inn on the Mexican War Streets, as well as some hotels: Hyatt Place, Residence Inn, and SpringHill Suites by Mariott.
Hope this helps!

Some friends of mine got married at The Mattress Factory about a year ago. As a guest, I was not impressed, but I suspect this would vary depending on the size and wants/needs of your guest list and date of your wedding. The outdoor space was beautiful, but there was not enough seating and it was brutally hot/humid. The reception was buffet-style, and the food was lackluster. A lot of it was lukewarm, and I’m not sure if that was due to a lack of kitchen space or just poor planning. Also, if booze is important to you or your guests, the bartenders aren’t actually bartenders – they’re Mattress Factory staff who aren’t educated in regards to mixed drinks. For instance, I don’t view a Cosmo to be an exotic drink, but none of their bartenders knew how to make one. However, as a guest, we did get to wander around during the reception, which was pretty darn cool. If you’re seriously considering this as a venue, though, I’d proceed with caution.
