first thing to keep in mind there is two sections one section has the pool if you don't want to walk across the street to get to the pool make sure you stay on the poolside. This is the perfect location you can get to the wharf very easy Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, it's just about the heart of all...

First time in San Francisco so pleasing to find nice hotel in convenient location. Easy walk to Fishermans wharf and plenty to see and do on your doorstep. Parking on site not cheap but reasonable for SanFran it seems.... food and drink in hotel pricey and better options nearby....

We enjoyed a spacious, clean, room with a comfy king bed during our recent visit. The welcoming staff, convenient underground parking ($50/nt), and other amenities were all fine, but the real reason for choosing this hotel was LOCATION! Walking distance from the food, attractions and entertainment of the Fishermans Wharf was the big selling point... and it delivered!

Pros- close to the Wharf, close to the city sight seeing office & bus stop. Not to pricey for parking. Comfy beds. Majority of the staff was super friendly. Fun write in chalk selfie board. Cons- pool was drained, no place to hang out & play games- not even outside by the pool which is closed. Only 1 luggage cart,...

I will start with the good points! This hotel was so close to fishermans wharf which was awesome. The staff were friendly, the room was huge and clean. Lots of plug sockets too. Downsides: the fan in the bathroom and air-con unit outside the room were so noisy it was ridiculous. The decor was tired and dated. We were in...
