Property features

A subtle nautical theme characterizes the Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf. In the lobby, for instance, seashells and crab icons are common themes. In the rooms, artwork depicts sailboats and other maritime vessels.

All hotel guests have complimentary access to the 24-hour business center, on-site fitness center and the outdoor heated pool.

There's also a sundeck that overlooks San Francisco Bay; it's a great spot to get a tan.

Two on-site restaurants provide endless dining options. At the Bristol Bar & Grill in the Columbus building, grab lobster ravioli or homemade clam chowder. A Denny's restaurant in the Beach building serves classic American fare 24 hours a day.

Self parking is available (fees apply).

Decent Place

My only complaint was my room was on the side that faces the building next door and there was a lot of noise from that.

awesome 2 day stay

We only stayed 2 days and we where out and about the entire time. We could walk to everything that we wanted to take in during our short stay...Fisherman's Wharf was right there, Pier 1 was a short walk, the trolley turn-around was just up the block, and Lombard Street and Ghirardelli square was a short walk as well. We will definitely come back and stay longer.

Great place! Quiet and close to ocean!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn to attend a conference in the downtown area. The hotel was conveniently located near a trolley stop. Staying at the hotel, going by the trolley and walking on the wharf was a great experience. It was not terribly expensive. Great value for money.

Hotel comments

Everything was fine (room, bar, lobby coffee bar, location, staff, business center, ample underground parking, etc.). My only negative comment is the challenge of driving a car into or out of the hotel. Because the entrance and exit straddle a diagonal street (Columbus), it was hard to drive in or out whenever there was traffic or pedestrians anywhere near the intersection.

This hotel was great location! Walking distance to fishermans wharf, pier 39 and other tourist areas. The hotel itself was a little worn down but overall good trip.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Definitely stop by the Buena Vista Cafe for irish coffees and then go down to the Warf to Nick's for clam chowder or crab bisque in a freshly baked sourdough bread bowl. YUM!
