Stopped here for four nights. Good location for Fishermans Wharfe area. You can either walk if feeling energetic or it's easy to catch a bus. The Big Bus Hoho stops outside so that's a plus. Lots of options for places to eat nearby. Had breakfast at Bay Watch cafe nearby a couple of times-reasonable price, quick service, food not bad.... More

A nice hotel but I dislike paying $200+ for a hotel room--even in San Francisco. Decent room but if you want a mini refrigerator you have to pay extra. While the room was on the quiet side of the hotel, the view was of a concrete wall.

We selected this hotel from the review from Tripadvisor. It was reasonably priced and rated pretty high. It was a good selection. We stayed here from July 26th-August 2nd (7 nights). The gentleman at the front desk early in the morning and about 9pm was very rude the entire week, not just to us but to others. There were many... More

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff was helpful, and courteous to me. The room was spacious, and the view wasn't bad. I really liked the location. If you took a cab to Pier 39, or Fisherman's Wharf the price wad reasonable. There are a lot of restaurants in the area too. Maid service could have been better,... More

We wanted to be close to public transportation, the wharf, and attractions. The room was nicely done and we could watch the sunset from our window. We had asked for early check-in but even though they told us we could get in at 2pm they did not have our room ready until the normal 4.00pm check-in. But they did give... More

Wonderful hotel in a very convenient location: clean, spacious, charming, with character, bay windows and everything you need! (Including free parking!) Although it was not cheap (good luck with that in SF!) it provided great and comfortable base for our family for a few days while exploring San Francisco. We were able to walk to Fisherman's Wharf, China Town, beautiful... More

Stayed here for three nights whilst on an epic tour California. Great sized room, the most comfortable bed and served its purpose for us really. Would stay again when back in San Francisco. If you want somewhere nice for breakfast then visit Bay Watch across the road, 10% discount for hotel guest!

We have used the Chelsea for frequent stays over the past 11 years ago. Frankly it has been a bit sketchy at times but the location and free parking the the Chestnut Neighborhood USED to make up for the foibles. However, this last stay I got no fewer than 25 bites from Bedbugs. When I mentioned this to the manager... More

We purchased two nights from Hotwire for a weekend in SF and ended up being very pleased with the Chelsea. Front desk service was top notch. Muhammed and Allan both offered great customer service. Our room was on the west side of the building, with a wonderful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The windows opened to let in the... More

We spent two nights at this hotel. After camping in Yosemite National Park the previous three nights we greatly appreciated the comfort and cleanliness of our spacious room at the Chelsea. The hotel has a great location - a 15 min walk from Fisherman's Wharf and in the evening we could see the sun setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
