My husband and I went to San Francisco for our first anniversary. I was hoping that this hotel would live up to my expectations and I wasn't disappointed. Wonderful experience. Great room, Great Staff.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It has a brilliant location at Fishermans Wharf being a street away from the main road and action, and the cable car route. We had an inside courtyard room and we did not have any noise issues. Each afternoon at 5-6pm they have complimentary wine and canapes in the reception/lounge overlooking the courtyard which has gorgeous pots of red flowering shrubs, which our room overlooked onto also The rooms were very comfortable from the beds/bedding/bathroom and were of a good size. The staff are very attentive and helpful, and I would definately recommend staying at this hotel.

GREAT location a couple blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, and the service is 5-star. The staff are all amazing and friendly, and the evening wine reception is terrific (there were about 50 people there one evening...we met folks from Europe and several places across the US) This is a cozy Kimoton boutique hotel, also branded as Best Western Plus. I expected good service, but truthfully got excellent service, from the doormen, baggage handlers, valet parkers, cleaning staff, front desk, etc. would definitely stay here again

We stayed here during a trip with our kids to SF and Yosemite. It was a very nice hotel in a great location, near Fisherman's Wharf, cable car lines, etc. our room was clean, beds comfortable, but the room was a little small for a family of four (to be expected Ina city hotel). Still we enjoyed our time at the hotel very much and would stay here again. Kids loved the free mint herbal tea in the lobby every morning. Fireplace was nice, too. All staff were friendly and helpful.

From the moment we were greeted at the front desk we felt like VIPs. It was our sons 10th birthday and Roy treated him like a prince. When we got to our room (which was just great) there was balloons and gifts and cards. Roy and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to make our sons weekend so special!!!!! Thank you! We will defiantly be back.

We stayed here for 5 nights in April. Absolutely loved this hotel and are so glad we chose it. The location is perfect and transport links to get around from here are great too. The free wine reception is a lovely touch with nibbles such as freshly cooked pizza. The restaurant that is attached to the hotel (Pescatore) is fabulous, we ate here twice. Our room was quiet and very comfortable (not that large and no view but I think its better not to have a room by the street anyway if you like it quiet). The Concierge was very knowledgeable and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

The personnel at this hotel is more than helpful and friendly. The coffee and tea in the a.m. was welcome as was the wine reception in the afternoon. The hotel needs some flags or other identifying marks outside as one can easily pass it up. Parking fees are outrageous. The location is great. We had ants in our room.

Hi Y2145TYjohnr - Thanks for staying with us and for the kind comments about our terrific staff and fantastic location. Sorry about the issue with ants and our exterior signage, I do appreciate your feedback. Parking is definitely expensive in the city, we suggest not even bringing a car to SF unless absolutely necessary. Our public transportation system is amazing. Thanks again for taking the time to share your observations and we hope to see you again soon!
