“Perfect Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We had a wonderful birthday weekend/ Giants-Dodgers game for my wife at this hotel. Very friendly staff who went out of their way to make our weekend very special including desert and wine waiting for us as we returned from a day of sailing and sight seeing. Perfectly located on the embarcadero a block away from the Ferry Building and about a mile from AT&T Ballpark. Bicycles available for guest to use. Great find for us. Almost hate to tell you about it.

Room Tip: Some rooms have beautiful views of the lights on the Bay Bridge.

Such a great hotel chain and fantastic location. I did wake up with bites that sadly followed me home. Pest control abated at some cost. I know that they will take this review seriously and quickly solve the problem. Worth the stay given price and location.

Kimpton has one of the most comprehensive and aggressive plans in place to detect and remediate bed bugs at the earliest possible instance.
• Our housekeeping and engineering teams continually undergo extensive training for detection, isolation and remediation.
• We do not wait for a complaint before taking action. We inspect guest rooms and public areas every single day for bed bugs using comprehensive and diverse methods of detection.
• Upon a sighting or complaint of bed bugs, we contact our outside pest control company which is ready and available to come to inspect and remediate on a 24/7 basis.
• Upon any indication of a potential bed bug issue we immediately implement an isolation plan which involves an extensive quarantine and abatement process.
• The entire process is monitored and supervised by our Sr. Vice President Facilities, our National Director of Facilities and a complete team of Regional Directors, as well as Area and City Directors. In addition, the plan is closely facilitated by each hotel’s Director of Engineering and Director of Housekeeping.
• We take the care and comfort of our guests seriously and welcome your feedback.


Thank you,

Melinda

Harbor Court is a gem of a hotel in a fantastic location. When we first got there, we were a little uneasy about the size of the room - small compared to most we've stayed in. After acclimating, the place grew on us and our week there was a very, very memorable one. The staff was the best we've ever experienced. The views are breathtaking. The restaurants and activities within walking distance are plentiful and diverse, and excellent. The YMCA is part of the same building (literally next door) and is a great convenience. We will definitely stay here again. P.S. be careful using the parking meters and read the signs - street cleaning is a great opportunity for S.F. to collect a lot of parking fines...

Room Tip: Some rooms are a little larger - the king and the harbor view.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a room facing the Bay Bridge so that we could enjoy the new light installation. We have stayed at this property before and have always been extremely impressed with both the location and the friendliness of the staff. We had a prior commitment on this trip so we didn't have a chance to enjoy the evening Happy Hour, which is always great fun, but we did enjoy coffee and the morning newspaper on Sunday morning.

This is definitely one of our favorite hotels in the City.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the bay side if possible, 518 for example was right across from Pier 14 which gave...

Was very warmly greeted and taken to a wonderful sea facing room with fantastic views of the bay bridge, and at night it was lit up, looked like fishes swimming across it, and when lying in bed you could turn your head and see it from the mirrored wall as well as from the window. The wine, beer and nibbles (complimentary) at 5pm was a great way to meet other guests followed by a film and popcorn followed by milk and freshly made cookies at 9pm. We could not fault this hotel and if we are ever back in San Francisco we will be staying at this hotel. There is such a lot to do and see in this vicinity, the farmers market, fishermans wharf, boat ride to Alcatraz etc.

There are many good hotels in San Francisco to pick from but one on the best value for your money is the Harbor Court. It is in a great location on the Embarcadero across from the Ferry Building. It is walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square and the Ball Park. There are also many very good restaurants in the neighborhood.
The Hotel is small with a very laid back vibe with wine in the afternoon and even cookies at night. The rooms might be on the small side but are very comfortable with everything you need. Get a room with a view of the Bay and the Oakland Bridge.
I could not more completely recommend it.

Wonderful! The room had a great view and was comfortable. The staff was most accommodating. The location is great, on the waterfront and at the edge of the financial district. Close to so many things that we wanted to see and experience.
