Only stayed for one night, but had a great stay. You can't beat the location - literally about a 3 minute walk, not just to Fisherman's Wharf, but also to Maritime Park (only beach in San Fran). The waterfront is gorgeous, and there are tons of restaurants to choose from. It's also about 10 minutes to North Beach (Little Italy)...

The general feel of this hotel is that it needs a bit of a refitt, it is very well positioned for Fishermans Wharf, however on our first night there was an altercation in the corridor outside of our room. When we rang the front desk to complain it took some time to get a response and all that was said...

The location of this hotel is absolutely ideal. A short walk from Fisherman's Wharf where everything is going on!
