My husband found this hotel and it was a very good choice. It was the for tail end of a special trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary and it made a lovely finish to the holiday.
The decor is quirky and stylish; the staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful; there's even a "Happy Hour" with free drinks every afternoon. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom well-appointed. Look out for the techy "Privacy" light instead of a card "Do Not Disturb" notice to hang on the door. There was also a USB charging hub in the room, which is very useful these days. We had a room upgrade on arrival which meant we had a sea view - directly across to Alcatraz.
The position is ideal for visitors to the city, as you are right on Fishermans' Wharf, close to Pier 39 and to the Powell St cable car line, as well as being close to the F line and bus routes.
We ate at the Blue Mermaid which is attached to the Hotel, and that was very good. You are also next door to the maritime visitors' center (there's even a door from the lobby) and this is well worth a visit, especially as it's free.
If you have a late flight, they will store luggage free of charge. We also arranged our return trip to the airport via the exremely helpful concierge.
Overall, we had a really enjoyable stay and I'd love to stay here again.
