“Very nice and a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

We spent a night here after a long day of traveling. The hotel appear to have been renovated recently so the room was very clean and the common areas were as well. Although there were families with kids staying here, the soundproofing in the rooms made for a a quiet nights sleep. The location is about a block from the fishermans wharf tourist area. A nice hotel in a popular area.

We have stayed here twice in the last year. This hotel is just a block from fishermans wharf and the cable car line turnaround that takes you all the way to Union Square. It is not a luxury hotel of course but it is clean, well staffed and safe. Solid choice if you want to take in the SF waterfront.

Room Tip: Inside rooms don't have a view if that is important to you.

Great breakfast (which saved us from buying breakfast everyday) in a great hotel at wharf. Rental car one block away which allowed us to park rental car overnight at rental car facility instead of paying for hotel parking which saved us money. They have a recommended airport shuttle which is a little bit cheaper than other airport shuttle. Very happy with stay and I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Stay on upper floors to avoid street noise and have a better view of bay. Ask for fourth floor facin...

This hotel has a very good location in Fishermans Wharf area in San Francisco. Its close to two end stations for cable car and also close to the end stop for the historical tramways line F. A few blocks away from Fishermans Wharf makes the surroundings calm but still close to all the action. The hotel interiors and rooms have just been refurbished and so the place looks new.
Room was large and clean. Had television, free wifi, safe, coffee machine. Bathroom had shower and tub. The air cond made some noise but otherwise quiet. Breakfast was varied and even if it was to be on the more simple side compared to more luxurious hotels we found everything we needed: Pancakes, eggomelettes?, yoghurt, muesli, juice, bread, bagels, cinnamon rolls, good coffee. The breakfast room was under refurbishment so it was served in a conference room, but it worked really well. Strongly recommend this due to its location and excellent value for the money.

I really enjoyed my stay at this Hotel, My mother and I had stayed here for 5 nights in November and it was great. The room was big and comfortable and the free breakfast was decent. The location is perfect...just one block from fishermans wharf and about 5 minute walk to pier 39... All of the tour buses start just around the corner, which make it very easy for tourists. Loved San Francisco soo much it was mu first time their and will be back! The only issue we had was the credit card had some unusual charges and holds on it that we discovered at the airport...a quick call to the manager and everything was fixed though... this is the only reason I did not give the hotel a 5. I would stay here again for sure

I go to San Francisco annually, and this year my partner and I decided to stay closer to Fisherman's Wharf. I had never driven to San Francisco, and this time I had the burden of a car. But the hotel parks the car for you in Valet parking (though you have to pay parking fees per night because San Francisco does not have any free parking, more or less). The breakfast the at hotel is free, and the lounge is pretty nice. The room was also pretty roomy and we had no problems at all. Everything is close by, too, so that if you fancy a walk to the Fisherman's Wharf for touristy purposes, this is a great location.

The lobby was being renovated while we were there and it's going to be quite nice when they finish! The reception staff was beyond nice. They were extremely helpful and kind. The rooms were nice and the bed was very comfortable. The included breakfast was wonderful. There was also free wifi, unlike other "high-end" hotel where we stayed. Would definitely stay here again!
