Taxis at Powell St. Station

We are arriving 11pm from SFO and are taking the BART to the Powell St. Station. I don't want to take a bus this late at night with our luggage, but are there taxis waiting at this station this late at night? Any other suggestions to get to Fisherman's Wharf area at reasonable cost?

Better to take BART to the Embarcadero station (two stations past the Powell Street Station), then ascend and pick up a cab right at the top of the stairs where they wait at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero. It won't cost you more than $10, I'll bet.

Much more convenient than coming up at Powell Street and dragging your luggage a half block to the Parc 55 hotel and grabbing a cab there.

Definitely go to the Embarcadero rather than the Powell Street Station. Much more convenient to Fisherman's Wharf. The Powell Street Station would be relevant if you were staying at a Union Square hotel --not so much for this. You can catch a cab from the Embarcadero to your hotel. It shouldn't be too expensive --maybe $12 tops, most likely less.
