    We stayed for couple of days in SF and picked this hotel for its location, charme and reviews. Rooms are on the small side, we stayed with 2 children in double and regret we did not booked a second room. Service of the hotel was ok, some staff did the extra mile, others was just soso. We only had breakfast... More

    This hotel does a great job accommodating guest room requests such as roll away beds and refrigerators. Additionally, they go the extra step to make guests feel valued. The location is perfect, right on the wharf and close to Ghirardelli. It is a bit noisy outside in the evening just due to the popular tourist location

    My first impression of the hotel and its staff was at arrival and check in. Employees were very courteous and helpful. I was checked in and in my room with little delay. There was a problem originally with my key card, so I popped back down to the lobby to get re-keyed. I was recognized by name and provided a... More

    This hotel is awesome! It's nautical theme gives you a real feel for San Francisco. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. The concierge helped us with transporting to At&T park where we saw a game. The restaurant in the hotel has very good food and room service. The location is prefect. It's right at Fishermans Wharf and walking... More

    We stayed in a large bay view suite, which was spacious and accommodated our family of 5 easily. Special mention to Stephen on the door who was very helpful and a great character. The evening drink were a nice touch. A great location on Fisherman's Wharf and still within walking distance of other areas such as Union Square and North... More

    We only stayed here for one night while we had a quick visit to San Francisco but it is easy to say that this is a really nice hotel. The location is great for Fisherman's Wharf and The Golden Gate Bridge. Our room was beautifully decorated and clean. The valet was quick with friendly staff. We had a rental car... More

    My son and I will be traveling to San Francisco in August. I always check Trip Advisor before making reservations and I am so glad that I did! I had read one review where the concierge was able to find tickets to the sold out tours of Alcatraz, and I have not been able to find tickets for our trip.... More

    We spent 3 nights in this hotel ahead of our Alaskan Cruise. The room was clean and spacious though a larger bathroom would have been preferred. There is a refreshing relaxed atmosphere amongst all the staff and they were friendly and helpful. This is a good location if you want a comfortable stroll to pier 39.

    We were here to do the marathon but chose this hotel as I had stayed here before. The rooms are huge and although you don't get a view (unless of course you pay for it) there is not much o complain about. The wifi isn't free which I thought was a bit mean but if you sign up for the... More

    First trip to SF so we were excited to stay here since it is right in the heart of all the "action". Rooms was meticulous, everyone was super friendly (including guest) and so close to all the things you want to do your first time in SF. Would return in a heartbeat! Love!
