I stayed again and was very happily surprised to find the rooms had gotten a little brightening, new plantation shutters on the windows, new sheets and towels. It was looking pretty good! New social events too, a 6pm movie in the lobby/social hall, expanded wine hour, apples out all day... two new bikes to borrow at any time to ride the city. And, even friendlier. I know, it sounds like crazy gushing, but I did notice quite a lot of nice new things that made my stay even better. But mostly - Harbor Court has the most comfortable beds of anyplace I've stayed. Really.

The bay view rooms are worth the slightly extra cost -- the view is magnificent! Perks like wine hour, morning coffee, cookies, morning paper make you feel as if you are staying with friends. Be sure to join Kimpton In-Touch as well -- $10 mini bar credit and free wifi.

It is the personal touches which made our recent stay at Harbor Court great. Friendly and courteous staff who use your name, extend small courtesies, and show a real interest in their guests' comfort and well-being made us feel as if we were staying with friends in their well located mansion along the San Francisco waterfront. Complimentary late afternoon beverage service (wine, beer, and sodas), evening warm cookies and milk, and cheetah bathrobes complement the attentive staff and help to make the stay one of our most pleasantly memorable hotel experiences.

Room Tip: The bayview rooms are more expensive but worth it.

We spent our last night here before flying back to Australia and we were not disappointed. We try and stay at Kimpton Hotels when we can and the Harbor Court was central to all our needs. The room was spacious but the bathroom a tad small. Although we could not be accommodated for a later checkout as the hotel was fully booked, we were able to use the facilities of the hotel till we left for the airport. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great stay.

Very cozy room, friendly staff, and prompt / reliable service. The free milk and cookies are a bonus as well. Good location and fast and efficient valet parking. Will definitely be staying there again soon. I recommend being a free InTouch member for a $10 credit toward the mini bar.

So I was planning a getaway weekend with my wife and dogs to San Francisco. I wanted to drive out there Saturday morning but my wife insisted to drive out there Friday night and get there as soon as possible. Happy wife, happy wife right? So we pack everything up and we are off at 10 pm Friday night.

A long road trip later, we get there at 5 am Saturday morning. Tired, we just wanted to get to our rooms, but we knew we were too early. So I decided to go in and see if Harbor Court would help us out.

Vaughn helped us out. He went out of his way to help us find a room at 5 am, and helped us get to our room. He even got us a second dog bed for our dogs. The room was perfect. I can't stress how much a little help went a long way. The hotel stay was perfect and they even wrote our dogs names as visitors in the dog chalkboard near the lobby.

Thanks again for the awesome experience.

P.S. - Point Isabel Dog Park is the best dog park I've seen :)

The staff here is beyond awesome! Daniel and Alexis were so gracisous and went over and above to make us feel Special. We were celebrating my Lover's Bday and upon hearing of how we me and flew in to celebrate him. They promptly sent up a Bottle of Wine and 3 deliscious deserts. Wine Happy Hour was fun and seeing the dogs and their owners in the lobby was priceless. We borrowed the Orange Bikes in the lobby ( they have 4 total) and rode to the Golden Gate Bridge. The staff let us keep them all day and I can not tell you how much fun and how much attention we got on these ORANGE bikes, Everyone everywhere loved them! Te location of this hotel is awesome. Right by the Ferry Bldg and next to fine dining at the Boulevard and OZUMO- whihch we absolutley loved! All in all it was just the perfect Blissful experience and we Highly recommend staying here. What a beautiful weekend we shared here with our room with Bay Bridge views. Just stunning! We wil surely stay here again! I Love all the Kimpton Hotels but this one stole my heart with its warmth anch charming staff! A memorable time!!!! Thank you for making our weekend spectacular!

Room Tip: ask for the Bay Views, Well wortht he upgrade, Therooms are small but who cares, it is charmimg
