Harbor Court Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Awesome bay view and comfortable bed. Time to replace some features that are starting to look worn to keep the hotel as great as it's been for so many years.

Had sprung for a view room, arrived and was given room that turned out to have a lovely view of the air shaft. When complained was told there were no view rooms available. No apology, no offer to refund any $. They did move me to a view room for the next 2 nights which was pretty. Kinda downmarket for the price though. In retrospect, I should have stayed at the Omni for the same price and more luxury. It was just ok here.

Very comfortable, nice location on the Embarcadero. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed over night after a Giants game. OUTSTANDING STAFF! Rooms are a little small but very comfortable and exceptionally clean. The view of the bay bridge was amazing all night long.

The hotel is near most of the attractions and the staff is great

It's a little unsettling to have to ask at nearly 5pm to have your room cleaned only to have an annoyed staff ask if I just wanted new towels. The hotel has no real amenities and I just felt like every little thing had an additional cost. Upon checking out we had a odd experience with someone requesting to see the mini bar...I get that stuff is expensive but we didn't touch it and it was annoying.

Great location. Good for couples and singles. Ferry is nearby and great restaurants. Excellent for commuting to anywhere in city by public transit.

Hotel has a great location, excellent value, staff is always ready to help, the place is classy and eventhough you don't have breakfast included you usually have snacks and beverages available

We paid a few extra dollars to have the Bay Bridge view and it was well worth it. Spectacular!

The hotel had great service and a great location. The room seemed a little warn, but was comfortable and clean. The lobby was beautiful...and again the staff was outstanding!

Room was small but it was San Francisco lol..awesometi.e..hotel and staff were Wonderful

I have only great things to say about this hotel with the exception of their telephone service. I traveled from Toronto, ON, Canada to San Francisco for business and would have hoped local calling from the hotel was free. To my surprise and slight disappointment, it was not.

Room was small but comfortable. Staff was very helpful and accommodating.

Great central location to everything! Close to the Embarcadero and the farmer's market on the weekend! Close to BART and other transportation.

Some of the amenities were really great (hot chocolate bar was adorable) others not so much. We also had a horrible view. Room service hours do not go very late and we wanted a late check out (only given extra half hour). A little disappointing.

We were late looking for a hotel for New Year's Eve in San Francisco. In finding the Harbor Court we found a gem! The location is excellent, the hotel, rooms, personnel, service were all fabulous! AND we got to bring Ella our doggie. She too enjoyed her stay. We highly recommend the hotel and would certainly return.

All hotels raise their prices for such nights as NYE, so though the cost of the room was higher than we liked, we certainly expected to pay a premium for this date. That said, the hotel is in a beautiful historic building and a great location. The rooms are small, as noted in other reviews, but we didn't reserve the room to hang out in it, we wanted it to sleep in after having a nice meal and a fun night out in the city. The minimal space was well-thought-out in design and clean, and the bed was very comfy. The was very gracious and helpful. We will surely return.

They went out of their way to help make my bf's birthday special, even sent a complimentary bottle of wine to our room. They serve wine every night starting 5pm. Cookies an milk starting 9pm and tea and coffee staring 5am.

Kimpton's rock! I've always had good experirences staying at Kimpton's. The room was very small but I knew that it would be so no suprise there. As always, the staff was super friendly and customer oriented. We were there for a family wedding but we were located such that we walked just about everywhere for the festivities of the weekend.... a wedding <1 mile away, the Blue Angels show, the Italian Heritage parade, America's Cup... all waterfront happenings!

My fiancee and I had such a wonderful stay at this hotel. After staying in many 3 star dumpy hotels in the city, we finally defined the gold standard. Complementary coffee in the morning, wine in the evening and cookies at night. Who can argue with that?

I am so sorry to hear that there were issues during your stay. We will certainly work closer with Expedia to make sure any upgrades they offer are communicated to the hotel.
