The rooms are comfortable and have mini bars as well as a safe. Very nice bathrooms with all amenities. The hotel is in a great... More

Great staff (Matt-concierge and Matt-bell services) who went out of their way to make our stay a great experience. Rooms are small but great location to Fisherman's Wharf area, Coit Tower and Embarcadero = mostly tourist spots/shops. View from room was a little odd (overlooked an apt bldg. and their deck) but again no real issues/complaints. Loved the nightly free... More

An excellent hotel. The staff at this property (all of them, from the front desk and restaurant to the forecourt and cleaners) all go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Atmosphere is sociable too, with complimentary daily wine sessions in lobby from 1700 till 1800 promoting mixing of guests. Location is great if visiting SF for vacation... More

A bit expensive for what you get. Stayed here about ten yrs ago and pricing was much more reasonable. Maybe due to a high event weekend on Fisherman's wharf???Plus $50 a nite for parking. OUCH. Nice wine + snacks in evening though. Probably will not return.

Hi soifdawg - As I responded to your review on another web site: Thanks for coming back after a 10 year absence. It is more expensive to stay in the fisherman's wharf area and I'm sure prices have risen considerably over the last decade. Not only are we the top tourist attraction in SF, we are one of the top...

I stayed 3 days in July 2014 with my son. This hotel is very local localeted, walking distance from many attractions. I would definitively return... without a car. The hotel only offers valet parking for $50/night, that was a bit of a disapointment. Other than that, the rooms are perfect and clean and we have access to a nice gym... More

Size of rooms was a surprise - small. When we opened the shutters on the room, we were surprised to see an orange brick wall. When we asked about it at the desk, we learned there are two views, brick wall or busy city street. The associated said we were lucky to have the brick wall - more quiet. The... More

Hi Janet K - Thanks for your review. As I mentioned in a private e-mail: Without question, the rooms in our European style boutique hotel can be considered small or "cozy" in comparison to some of the larger box box hotels we've become familiar with. While some rooms do face a wall, these rooms seem to be our most popular... More

My first time at this hotel and I got a great deal on Expedia! The staff were all very kind and helpful and I especially liked the complimentary wine and cheese nightly from 5 to 6pm! The lobby was lovely with a fireplace and I enjoyed just relaxing from a long day! Will definitely stay there again! Thank you!

Wonderful stay for 2 nights. Very clean, quiet & within walking distance to the Pier and bus/trolley. They have a concierge, however, we had to stand around to "wait our turn" and people kept walking up. Only other small problem was one of our rooms were not ready. They were supposed to let us know when it was ready. We... More

Hotel staff was very helpful, the rooms were very clean, great location just a block from all the shopping, restaurants and attractions on the wharf. The king suites are beautiful and the bed was the most comfortable of all the hotels I have ever stayed in. I will definitely stay there again.
