My wife and I had 3 nights here and enjoyed our stay. Good location. Clean and well looked after. Everything you would expect. Really comfortable bed. Only criticism is the price. Very expensive for what it is but then San Francisco is an expensive place.

What a great place to stay, I have stayed here twice and both times looked after very well. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Very close to all the attractions on Fishermans wharf. Terminal for cable cars just around the corner. Defiantly stay here again.

This is a nice clean hotel, in a great location. However, if you end up staying in the annex building (they call it the Wharf building) you may as well be in the attached Holiday Inn Express. There is no bar or restaurant in this building (available a 5 minute walk away in the main building) just a rather rough...

This hotel is in a great location, a short walk to the Wharf. Lots of eating and drinking places nearby as well as a plethora of shops. Rooms are extremely dated, green walls, pink/red curtains. You can hear all the outside noises, clearly hearing people speaking on the ground from the 5th Floor! Suggest rooms are re-modelled and new windows...

As previous reviewers have written the hotel in going through some renovations. Our room was in the second building across the parking lot but it was clean and comfortable and the price was right.

Stayed here for 7 nights in March 2014. This is a great hotel in a great location. The room we were given on the 5th floor had a terrific view of Alcatraz.
