“Beauty by the Sea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent stay here. Our plane to San Fran was delayed and we didn't arrive until 6am. We called the hotel to alert them to our dilemma and they were so kind. They ended up upgrading our room....I guess they felt sorry of us. We had a lovely room facing the bay. I did hear a customer complain about the noise of the room facing the highway. Be sure request a water facing room!

unfortunately my favorite "handicapped access " room on the first floor was out of order. the one on the second floor in the annex was OK.
the staff was very warm and courteous.
we enjoyed the breakfasts and the happy hour full meal. how nice!
your rooms are clean and nicely decorated. WiFi access is appreciated.
will definitely recommend this Hilton hotel and will stay again if the need arises.

Room Tip: do get the embarcadero side for your room. view is great, walking there is great and eating outside...

We had a business meeting here and it was a great experience. Great value and excellent staff. Nice waterfront location, free parking and the manager's afternoon reception was really filling and tasty!

Great stay. Rooms clean and plenty of space. Wonderful view of the bay. Breakfast was very good. Best part for me was the 1 mile walk/drive to the SF bay ferry which dropped you off at the Wharf. No traffic, no parking hassles.

I stay in this Hotel as an alternative to San Francisco hotels. The overall experience was good. However, the only thing that is really annoying is the a/c set up. I have a light sleep and each time that the a/c turns off it awakes me.

Quiet, waterfront views, reasonably priced. Shuttle within 2 mile radius. Dinner with wine, and breakfast included during the week. Very clean, comfortable, friendly staff. Close to Jack London Square.

Room Tip: Choose waterfront side as opposite side faces highway and could be noisy.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. Touropperator made the choice for me. Was assigned a cityview room. Told lady about bad reviews on tripadvisor about the cityview rooms an asked for a waterfront room. She upgraded us without a problem.

Rooms are great!

Breakfast was fine. Free dinner was just oke. Free wine surprised us both!

Drove the rental car to downtown San Francisco. Only took 20 minutes.
