“Marriott Fisherman's Wharf”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Great location about 2 blocks to the Wharf pier 39 is a couple of blocks further up. Rooms are clean beds comfortable there is a fridge, CSV (Drug Store) 2 very close within a block. Free WI-FI only in the lobby unless you want to pay. Staff very helpful and friendly we only had 2 night here so very convenient for Alcatraz. If you looking for a great tour check out Urban Safari's website I booked from Australia before leaving. Would stay again

Room Tip: We choose a courtyard view room but I don't think it really matters.

Upon entering the lobby, it is clean and bright. Everyone greeted us and was very friendly. Our room was nice. No complaints! In the mornings, they have free coffee in the lobby and in the afternoons, after walking the piers all day, it was great to come back to a water cooler with fruit infused in it. I actually looked forward to that everyday! All staff we encountered were always helpful. The cleaning staff was also! They always said hello in the hallway and were very friendly which was nice. You could tell they liked their jobs! We had a room that faced one of the streets and it tended to get a little noisy some nights but the hotel cannot control traffic noise. The darkening curtains were nice! This is a great location also because you can walk about 2-3 blocks to Pier 39 which is where a lot is always going on! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

The hotel is a block from Fisherman's Wharf, a popular tourist destination although very crowded with low end souvenir and T shirt shops among the restaurants and boat docks. That being said, the hotel itself is kind of tired looking, and the rooms are bland looking, although very clean. Its an OK place to sleep, but nothing to get excited about.

The rooms are average but clean and well kept. However the hotel staff were just amazing. they made every effort to make my stay a good one. The location of the hotel is just perfect. It's within blocks from the wharf, close to the public transit and near so many wonderful restaurants. My friend ran a half marathon and they couldn't have been more accommodating. It was the first time I stayed near the wharf and it was so nice to be away from the congestion of downtown San Francisco.

Room Tip: let the hotel staff know you dont want to stay near the elevator.

Hello Patice M,
Thank you for sharing your experience about your recent visit to the Fisherman's Wharf area.

The property being referred to in this review is a different property, not ours. Based on the details on your review, you stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott on 550 Beach Street.

I have contacted Trip Advisor to correct the error.

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Sincerely,

Suggestions:

-ask for a north or south facing room, not an interior facing room.

Pros:

-location, can't beat it
-updated (although small) rooms.

Neutral:

Very good staff except for one who was too busy texting than to answer questions or greet people. She strategically place her cell phone between the screen and keyboard so no one would notice her looking texting.

Cons:

-No concierge lounge
-No upgrades for Rewards members
-No lunchtime room service
-very old building, but decently renovated
-Bathtubs OLD, tiny and shallow. Buildings original tubs surrounded by updated bathrooms.

Stayed at this Marriott with my wife as I took her on her first visit to San Francisco. For the most part, a hotel is where I spend my sleep time so I just want clean rooms and good showers - both were achieved. Did not like the pillows - too soft for me but that was not a big issue. The staff that we did encounter were friendly and smiled. The BEST part is the location relative to Fisherman's Wharf - 2 small blocks away and you are in the middle of it. Easy access to hop on hop off bus tours of San Fran (highly recommend if you are visiting for first time). I did feel that the restuarant was a little pricey especially with so many food options within 1 - 2 blocks, with that said, we did not eat at the hotel. I did not like the parking fee but it was the same as other hotels in the area - if you do not absolutely need a car, save money (rental car cost and parking cost) buy getting a taxi to the hotel and ride the bus or walk to tourist attractions in the Fisherman's Wharf area.

You know what they say... Location, Location, Location. This hotel had a great location, just blocks away from cable car, streetcars, etc and walking distance from Ghirardelli square and Fisherman's wharf. The staff was wonderful, front desk, concierge, bar staff, and housekeeping, went out of their way to help us with random things. The rooms are nice and spacious but have no real views and the bathrooms are small without an exhaust fan. Lobby is beautiful and comfortable though. We are a family of five and had two adjoining rooms, the refrigerator was convenient for some snacks, etc. We parked our car a couple blocks away and saved $20/day. I definitely recommend researching parking if bringing a car.

Room Tip: "Courtyard view" are really just a view of a first floor ceiling turned courtyard, but are...
