Stayed here 2 nights. Super nice staff. Large clean room. Right off the F line on the Muni. Wine reception in evenings (don't care, don't drink). Cookies would have been nice. Biggest downside is that breakfast isn't included. Not sure about parking as we didn't get a rental until after we left the city. They have a Trader Joes right... More

An excellent and comfortable base for our SF visit. Warm and relaxing "living room" with a fireplace and comfy seating. Generous wine reception from 5-6pm nightly. We had 3 wines to taste that night. Appetizers were a bit scarce, as the food trays could have been replenished more frequently. Unexpected pastries offered in the morning with the coffee/tea ; nice... More

I usually stay at the Argonaut, also a Kimpton Hotel, on the wharf in SFO, where one enjoys large rooms and DVD players. While the Tuscan is managed by Kimpton, the queen standard room is significantly smaller, neither 'spacious' nor the '270 sq ft' the website claims, the Kimpton service and comfort is evident. For this reason I give the... More

We stayed at Tuscan for few days because I cancelled our original booking at Sheraton fisherman's warf at last minute due to the problems at Sheraton. The staff at Tuscan are very nice and helpful Unfortunately the quality of the room was not the best. We forgot some valuable items in our room after check out. I called the hotel... More

The hotel is well located downtown, but dated decor and the rooms were small and not very clean. Additionally, the room was loud (you could easily hear TV's in all neighboring rooms on both sides and along the hall), and the air conditioner did not work well (very loud and thermostat kept turning it on and off).

The location seems pretty good, excellent indeed, even if Fsherman's Wharf has lost most of its charm. The hotel is known as The Tuscan by all and sundry. The rooms are small but well appointed, the beds good and the hotel was not noisy. There is no breakfast included but the attached coffee shop is quite OK and two food... More

The hotel is in a great location, right in the heart of Fishermans Wharf and within walking distance to most key attractions. The rooms were clean and the bed was extra comfortable. Would stay here again.

Bestwesrn Plus, The Tusan is located in the heart of Fishermans Warf. Many hotels in this San Francisco area are very pricey and once you compare prices and location you will see this property is a good deal. Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco’s Cable Car, Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, and Alcatraz Island are all within 1/2 mile. There there are... More

My wife and I and our 2 kids (12+14) stayed here for 4 nights during November. It was a nice quiet place. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was fine although with 4 people it can get a lit bit cramped with everyone moving around but that did not bother us at all. The location was perfect,... More
