“Great location for holiday trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2009

We arrived from airport by taxi ($50). This was a hassle as a family of 4 with luggage seemed to take the airport taxi system by surprize. We had to wait 20 minutes until a larger taxi arrived and there were 4 families off our flight who were still waiting when we left.
Checkin was easy. First room alloctaed was overlooking the busy bus depot so I asked for a change as advised by TA and we were moved without quibble. Room for the 4 of us was a little cozy but we were only sleeping in it. Bathroom is on the small side but everything was clean etc. No issues. Free internet in lobby area. Parking in Hotel car park is very dear at $43 + tax. We had a car for one night and used the public car park behind hotel for the night for $25.
Had a couple of drinks at bar but never ate in hotel. Pleany of options for breakfast and meals around area. Local IHOP was very popular but slow. Hotel was perfect for what we wanted near the pier for Alcatraz, Pier 39 for entertainment and cable cars etc. We found hotel ideal or our needs.

Second time here. Sayed before the refurb and now after. Hotel looks a lot better but you can still tell that it is an older syle hotel. Rooms are an ok size bathroom is pretty small for a Sheraton. Location is fantastic being only 1 street back from fishermans wharf wich is a good thing as there is no noise. Also close by is a supermarket which was quite handy.
The front area where you can sit and enjoy drinks around long fires is a great idea and a good place to relax with a drink after a days touring - as long as there is room as it gets very popular at night!

We booked through Hotwire and got a good deal for the hotel. The hotel is in a good location right down by Fishermans Wharf, we found the area too touristy for us and did not spend much time down there but we did like the location of the hotel. It was right by a Trader Joe's, great for getting breakfast and dinner supplies if you are on a budget as we were. The only draw back was no fridge in the room, these could be supplied for $10 dollars day - we declined. We walked from the hotel to Union Square numerous times which was about 2 miles and it was hilly but we didn't mind at all. The rooms were nicely decorated and you got Starbucks coffee for the machine in your room, always a bonus.

My wife and i use to go to this Sheraton almost every year, Once they remodeled this hotel they took away it's club level, they took away it's class. The blue and white beach ball hallways are a joke. The owners of this hotel need to go to Seattle and see a classy Sheraton. The hotel in Seattle have a very nice club level and the class the Sheraton in Frisco use to have.

I got a good rate on this hotel for business - but it really caters to tourists. It's strength is its location, for sightseeing. However, you'll need to put up with the decor which is circus-like. Also, the door that adjoined to my room had a huge gap at the bottom and allowed me to hear even the quietest conversations of my neighbors. The hotel also has a lot of wear and tear since it has so many guests. If you get a good rate, it might be worth it. Don't pay full price. Also, BEWARE the parking status. The charge for parking is over the top!

Just returned from Sheraton Fishermans Warf and was disappointed with the quality of the hotel. Usually stay at Sheraton and have to agree with one of the previous reviews now I have experienced it first hand- not up to usual standard for the quality of this hotel chain. Lacks amenties offered through other hotels-refrigerator and coffee pots and the restaurant has limited hours. Service is good and everyone is friendly but there is not a quiet room in the place- If you are a light sleeper. Rooms are small and the bathroom is a closet. You would be better off being a bit further back from the warf and getting more for your dollar. Spent two weeks with them and if I had not prepaid would have searched for another venue.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sheraton at Fisherman's Wharf. I would not call it a luxury hotel, but I would call it a fun hotel. The staff was very nice. The lobby has a good vibe. We had a room on the top floor with dormer windows. I would request these rooms, because they feel bigger. The bathroom was standard issue on the small side. We really enjoyed the pool. It is hard to find an outdoor pool in downtown SF. It was heated and clean.
