Perched in a prime location, the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero garners acclaim for its spacious and pristine rooms that showcase breathtaking views. While the atmosphere and luxury amenities are often lauded, some guests find the decor lacking vibrancy. Despite the high praise for the hotel's cleanliness and attentive service, there are occasional reports of service lapses and Wi-Fi issues. The hotel's value is a point of contention for some travelers, who feel that the cost of extras and services doesn't always meet expectations.

A modern, clean hotel. The rooms are big with outstanding views across San Francisco. We were on the 40th floor . Beds super comfortable. I could hear sirens during the night but it is a hotel in the CBD. The staff were very helpful and attentive, went out of their way to accommodate us .

I had a positive experience staying at the Four Seasons Embarcadero for the first time. All the staff I encountered were super friendly. The room was spacious with all the needed amenities. The bed was comfortable. The daily turndown service was appreciated. The room was quiet, and the views were amazing. Overall, highly recommended.

Hands down the best for location with easy access to Peet’s and Blue Bottle coffee shops, quite neighborhood, accessible to everything from the Ferry Building to the Golden Gate Bridget, and beautiful vistas of the TransAmerica Building, Coit Tower and Alcatraz; the staff is simply amazing, professional, genuine, beyond helpful and accommodating. We have special needs the hotel exceeds expectations on all levels. It has become our go to hotel when visiting SF. Jason (the hotel GM) is doing an extraordinary job !!

This four seasons has very new room compared to other properties in US. So far the only hotel has AC wind blow downside instead of parallel to ceiling. Amex booking has one level room upgrade. Food is good including the breakfast. They have a tunnel where you can see city view of SF. Only bad thing is TOO many homeless around the hotel

Exceeded expectations on the hardware (amazing view, modern/new furnishings) but disappointed on a few areas of service. Valet was never waiting outside which was annoying given there is only space for 2 cars to park at a time so you have to double park and then go inside to get help. This is especially disappointing at night when you have kids and it doesn’t always feel particularly safe given how empty the area can be at times. For a $50-80/night valet parking I would expect more. I also requested a few things where they missed some item like bringing the valeted car out or extra bedding. I will say the staff was incredibly friendly. The front desk in particular Sequoia made us feel very welcomed and cheerful. I hope they work out the service issues otherwise.

Couldn’t have enjoyed this stunning room at FS embarcadero anymore than we did. The beds are the best in the game and the bathrooms are pure luxury. We had a beautiful experience with all of the staff and can’t wait to return. Wagner Bespoke travel agency booked our trip and we received the best service being with a preferred partner. Highly recommend!

No coffee pods or creamer in the coffee pods/creamer box next to the coffee maker - had to bring up from downstairs. Turndown came very late, we were already asleep. The shades aren’t automatic, so you must walk around to all of them tugging at multiple cords on each to open or close, takes about 10 min for the whole room. Wi-Fi has been spotty today, mostly out, and when I called downstairs they simply said “yeah, sorry, it’s being spotty…” so I’ve lost a ton of work that couldn’t save due to their WiFi and can’t work at all now! No pool or spa. Dining is meh.

This hotel hits the right notes every time. This was our third stay at the FS Embarcadero. Communication with the hotel ahead of the stay was proactive and responsive. The rooms are quiet and have fantastic views no matter which way you face. The restaurant has great food and the service is friendly. Folks at the front desk are kind and helpful.
