Comprising two separate buildings, this Fisherman's Wharf hotel is situated within walking distance of Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square and ferries to Alcatraz Island. The property features two on-site restaurants and an outdoor heated pool. It also offers complimentary limousine service to guests who stay on the Executive Club floor.

Rooms

Accommodations -- 579 rooms and six suites -- span two adjacent buildings. All rooms come standard with flat-screen televisions, hairdryers, ironing boards and in-room safes. Many also offer stunning views of San Francisco Bay, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access. Pets welcome (fees apply).

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).

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.

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!

Not bad

Decent hotel in a good location. We requested a no-smoking room which we had to sign for, but it seemed to be in a smoking area. had to put pillows on the interconnecting room doors to block out the cigarette smells

Great value for great location

Hotel is clean and seems to have had recent remodeling. I stayed at the annex building (with the Denny's restaurant) and everything is fine. Room clean and quiet, bed confortable, quick housekeeping. Staff is very nice and the lady at the front desk was helpful (she allowed for flexible later check-out time). This is a great value considering the location, within walking distance of many tourist attracions in San Francisco. Everything you expect of this hotel category is there.
