Best way to get to the airport. Take a street car to Market street from the Wharf using a street car for $2 a person. Then take the Bart to the airport for $8.10 a person. Easy

GREAT TRIP!

We went to San Francisco to escape the lingering Wyoming winter. What a fantastic trip! The hotel was only one block off the wharf. It was clean and comfortable. We arrived in San Francisco at 8am, and they were gracious enough to let us check in early so we could drop off our luggage. We took the wine tour to Napa and Sonoma Valleys and purchased wine to take home. We didn't have tape to seal the box, but housekeeping sent a roll of packaging tape to us. We really appreciated this! All the employees were professional and courteous. We would definately stay there again.

No need to rent a car if you're just going for a weekend. There are so many attractions within walking distance to this hotel. Trolley Cars, Alcatraz tour, Aquarium, Sea Lions, Lombard Street, The Wharf- several restaurants there, along with shops and lots of street entertainment. You can always grab a cab if you want to venture out further.

Can't beat the price or location

Super clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable bed and furniture. Free wi-fi was a plus. Just a half block from Fisherman's Wharf, bus tours, and all sorts of transport to China Town, Golden Gate Bridge, etc. Of course, many fantastic restaurants close to the hotel. Our favorites were the seafood eateries and the Irish pubs.

Prices for San Francisco Souvenirs along the wharf area are cheaper (yes cheaper)than what we found around the Moscone Center and the Square.
