We stayed over the busy fleet w/end, Blue Angels, Parades, Americas Cup so really busy.
The greatest asset of this hotel is its location, right where you need to be on the Wharf.
We booked a package that included valet parking & breakfast, this came with a 3 day pass for all Muni transport (cable cars, buses, trams) & I would definitely advise having a look at the hotels website for these deals as it can be expensive for parking etc.
No problems with check in & staff had all details for our stay to hand. Concierge (Terry) was informative & can give good recommendations for almost anything.
Rooms were good size for us & we liked the nautical theme. Nice touch with the different bathrobes & bed socks! The let down in the room was the shower, it was an old type & wasn't in keeping with the rest of the bathroom or room.
Like a previous reviewer has said the breakfast is a bit of a let down & we were told there is a better option just a short way down the Wharf. We also ate in the Mermaid for dinner on 1 night but wouldn't return as the service fell short of what we have experienced elsewhere.
The wine reception at 5pm was ok although we didn't see any cheese, only a small plate of battered prawns was on offer which wasn't very substantial at all (they were all gone in a few seconds). We have had better wine receptions in B&B's on this trip.
If returning to San Fran we would def look at this hotel again & with a couple of improvements it could be top class.
