Quick overnighter

Check in was quick and painless. As usual in the City, $50 to valet park. Room was clean. Went downstairs and enjoyed the complimentary wine hour. Beds were comfortable. Great bedding. Only minor negatives. Shower handle came off when turning on water. Furniture is scratched and could use a fresh coat of paint. Window coverings showing their age.

Great for families

This was our second time staying at this property. As before, it's very well-located if you're traveling as a tourist, with Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 just steps away. We did not like our room very much initially since it was too far from the elevator, and they immediately came up and helped us with our luggage to switch to a different room. Very accommodating and friendly staff!

4th of July weekend

Location was excellent, couldn't get any better. It's only a few blocks away from pier 39 and where the fireworks took place. Safeway is right across the street and the restaurant in the Hotel was Mediocre. Hollywood cafe was much much better although there was a long wait. Rooms are pretty small, it reminded me of the hotels in Europe. I thought it was a bit too pricy which did not include parking in the hotel which was an additional $55 for an SUV for 1 night.

My wife and I had a great time at The Tuscan. It is wonderfully located re Fisherman's Wharf and the cable cars. The Concierge was particularly helpful.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're taking the bus to a Giants ball game, you have to transfer from the train that leaves Fisherman's Wharf to a Muni train that is running underground, without benefit of signage at the transfer point. Very, very confusing.
