“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2007

Nice, clean, comfy hotel. Just a few blocks from the wharf and the trolly. Vallet parking underground about $35 a day. Cont breakfast was more than expected with hard boiled eggs, cinnamon rolls, and pastry along with cereal and doughnuts. Room was comfortable and even had its own coffee maker. Interior room view was not the best, but we didn't stay for the view. Friendly and helpful staff. They were great with directions. I'd recommend for the budget watching folks who still want to stay within walking distance to the wharf. Overall, a great stay and no complaints.

My wife and I spent eight nights here in April, 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is very conveniently located for the many attractions of Fisherman's Wharf and only a five minute walk to the cable car terminus. The cable car (which is a San Fran "must") takes you right into the heart of the shopping area centred on Union Square. Indeed the cab fare to the Square was only $8 so for four people (we were joined by our daughter and son-in-law on day 3) this is the better deal.

The hotel is all that you could wish for - spacious room, queen-size bed, cable TV, ironing board/iron, complimentary tea/coffee etc. Add to that the inclusive continental breakfast and you have a bargain. The hotel's warm cinnamon buns are to die for!

Built-in ramps for those with wheelchairs etc figure in the lobbies on each upper floor and I cannot honestly think of any negatives. We would certainly stay here again if visiting San Fran once more.

Do visit Alcatraz (but book in advance), Ghiradelli Square and Pier 39. We also enjoyed the open-top double decker bus tours and our tour in a World War II DUKW.

  • Liked — Convenient location

This hotel is very good value for money and the staff are helpful. The only slight problem was a noisy party next door one night , but the desk staff attended to this when I complained and there was no further problem. The rooms are a reasonable size, I had a view of Coit Tower, and the location is excellent.
The breakfast area gets a bit crowded at the weekend but that is a small price to pay. I would go there again.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in February 2007 and it was fantastic. I can recommend it to anyone wanting a fishermans wharf area hotel as not only are the rooms spacious and clean, but you also get a free continental breakfast which is a rarity in the U.S.
There is also a Sports bar opposite which has a friendly atmosphere (much nicer than the bar at the neighbouring Holiday Inn!) Only problem with this area of the town is the distinct lack of nightlife but regular trams take you up to Union Square where it is much livlier.
A great hotel at a great price

Good tourist location, modern clean rooms and bathrooms. Very helpful reception staff. The valet parking is expensive..around $40 with tax, but very convenient - the car is parked in a garage under the hotel. If you want to save money on that, it is possible to park for less just a block or two away. The breakfast is acceptable as a "free" breakfast, but we chose to eat in the Hollywood Cafe next door for an inexpensive big American breakfast !
Overall I'd highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights after an eventful journey from the airport via BART! Checkin was very quick & cheery & helpful although we did have to insist on 2 beds! Room was nice no real view but the beds were comfy & the pillows plump. Great location just 2 blocks from Fisherman sWharf.
Breakfast was included & good but not always plentiful. it consisted of cereals, fruit, juice, coffee, croissants, donuts, bagels & toast. 9am was ok but dont expect everything!
Staff were helpful with directions.
The hotel was clean & fresh & very pleasant! Free internet access just off the lobby. Hotel is surroundedby other hotels & lots of souvenir shops. There is a 7-11 & a walgreens nearby (in different directions!)
Had a great stay!

This is a great hotel. I had a king room on the interior. Quiet, but I also turned on the fan to mask any hall noise. Noisy toilets, though. Room was nice size with an upholstered chair, small desk with
comfortable work chair, internet access, good lighting, safe, small bathroom but lots of counter space. I used the lobby computer and printer for my boarding pass. Nice folks at front desk. Nothing exciting on breakfast bar and it did get busy, but typical for big city hotel. Luggage trolley available for your use-no bellman.

I was attending a conference at the Hyatt and my AAA room rate was $35 less than the Hyatt conference rate and included more in my opinion.
