Location, Location, Location!

If you want to be by Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, this is the place. Additionally, the best Continental Breakfast we've come across at a hotel. Biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc.... This is actually a full-blown breakfast. With three of us on this trip, the breakfast saved us an easy $45 every morning.

Not bad at all

I paid $560 for two nights for this 3-star hotel. At first, I was skeptical. But then again, the "location"! Overall, it is better than I expected. Oh, the complimentary breakfast was a "hot" breakfast, meaning they actually served it hot! This is one of the few perks they offered. The hotel is within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, the Cable car stop, Aquarium of the Bay, and we even walked to The Exploratorium which took us about 15~20 min. We had a king size bed, ground floor room. Pretty roomy.

Try "King of Thai Noodle House" right next to the In-N-Out burger. We had the roasted duck soup noodle and they papaya salad, plus the dessert mango sticky rice. None disappointed us.

Unexpected excellence!

Chose this hotel because of location and it was worth it. Had everything we need for a party of 5 of grandparents and three grandchildren. Cleanliness of room service was fantastic and the breakfast all that we hoped for in feeding three pre-teens with voracious appetites. Also, sharing pool use with the next door neighbor Holiday Inn was greatly appreciated. Desk staff most accommodating and polite and if something was requested, it was supplied instantaneously! Would choose it again if staying in San Francisco.

City is meant for walking, long or short! However, the transit system and purchasing a City Pass is the best ever!

Great choice while in San Fran

Very clean, excellent customer service. Spacious bathroom, very comfortable mattress and pillows. No traffic noise issues. I booked this four our family of five and was expecting a pull out couch along with the double beds, but no couch! Room service brought us a rollaway right away. Excellent breakfast with hot and cold items. One block from the bus tour stop, blocks from Ghidarelli Square and the trolley cars. TV channels are limited, no Disney Channel. Do not recommend for a family of five, but otherwise is great!

Holiday Inn

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf for six nights during Holy Week. The hotel was very full with tourists and school groups. Our room was very clean and quiet. The included breakfast was very nice and featured more items than we expected. The only negative was getting a table due to the high occupancy rate of the hotel. The hotel is located in a great area for getting to know San Francisco. This was our fourth trip to San Francisco and we will return to this hotel on our next visit.

Do not bring a car

They charged $45.00 per day for parking. It was ridiculous. There was no lounge area or bar area for sitting and relaxing. The breakfast was mediocre at best. The location was good but I would not stay there again nor could I recommend this place to anyone.
