This hotel is clean and the room was good, just what we needed for a base whilst in San Francisco. The hotel is in a great location for fishermans wharf, the piers and the cable car turnaround. The pool area is on a main road, but we did use it one afternoon and It was nice to relax in the... More

The hotel was clean and the room was fine. Nothing spectacular, but certainly OK. The cost of the room was crazy high, but it is in an awesome location so its hard to complain. Much. The front desk staff was exceptionally friendly. I interacted with some of the housekeeping people and they were great too. Back to that location- it... More

Hello TDbusiness, Thank you for your recent stay here at Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf. We truly appreciate your feedback.

Check-in was quick and easy, but our room was in the building around the corner and across the street. The room had a few problems: the TV wasn't receiving local channels; the toilet was dripping from the handle; and, the phone didn't work. I had to call the front desk from my cell phone. It was late and my wife... More

Fab location only a 5min walk to Fisherman Wharf and a 10min walk to pier 39!! Hotel is a little tired but clean and has everything you need including a 24hr Denny's!! Staff are helpful and polite. Don't expect to stay in the newer more modern side whee u check in!! You may be put across the road!!

While vacationing in San Francisco I choose Holiday Inn Express - Fishermen's Wharf because of the value as well as the experience I've always had at other Holiday Inn Express'. I was not disappointed. From the moment I arrived the service was wonderful. The hotel was clean, updated, and close to the wharf and all the restaurants and tourist attractions,... More

Nice hotel room with great location! The hotel is located centrally in Fisherman's Wharf, with a 5 to 10 min walk to Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39 and about a 15 min walk to Pier 33 to get the boats to Alcatraz! We were only there for 3 days but the location meant we could get to everywhere we wanted very... More

The Holiday Inn is comparable in quality to other hotels that I have visited while traveling to San Francisco including the more well known business brands like Hyatt and Marriott. The room and the bed in particular I found very comfortable and the choice between firm and soft pillows was legitimate (there is nothing worse than being confronted with six... More

We stayed for one night before our trip to Napa. The hotel was in the perfect location - we walked to restaurants, shopping and Pier 39. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel and rooms were clean and and the rooms were a nice size. The pool looked nice-we didn't use it. The workout facility was very small... More

Stayed for four nights whilst in SFO. Room was good, modern and spacious and we were allowed to book in slightly early as we arrived ahead of schedule. We had to print some tickets for things we had booked and this was free and unlimited in the business center. Unfortunately our room faced the rear of the hotel parking area... More

With only five days to explore, staying at Fisherman's Wharf gave us access to everything we wanted to see. Whilst not really liking Fisherman's Wharf itself ( too commercial for me ) the hotel was ideally placed. We stayed in the separate block in a family room with coffee machine and TV. The room had no view but was clean... More
