Great hotel close to Pier 39. Parking is too expensive but the hotel is wonderful. I will stay here again but will use the city parking lot. Breakfast was prepared with choice of hot or cold. If you choose to eat in the dining area you must show covid vaccine proof with your ID.

We stayed 2 nights. Our room was in the 1600’s and faced out into a courtyard. The courtyard is narrow and on about the same level as our 1st floor room. When you open a window or raise your shades, you might find yourself uncomfortably close to some strangers using the courtyard. Completely destroyed the pleasure of having a courtyard facing room. Maybe higher floor would be better. No doorman on duty when we arrived at around 3:30. Check-in was long and tedious. I had booked two rooms for my family and the clerk seemed totally confused by that. When I asked if keys of both rooms could be set up to access the parking garage, she became frustrated and sought help from another employee. Rather than keep your credit card on file for incidentals, Riu adds a $150 hold per room to your card. I’m not really comfortable with that procedure, but had no choice. Still waiting to see if the whole $150 is removed from card. When I asked the desk clerk to break a $20 bill so I could tip the housekeeping staff, the clerk looked at the bill in my hand and said without looking up at me, “No. We don’t keep small bills here.” So housekeeping, the desk really has your back. No tip left. The rooms were small and clean and the courtyards and outdoor seating are comfortable. Good location. Parking was $110 for two nights with free in and out. Outrageous parking price, but they know they have you. Parking in that area is at a premium. I will never stay here again and will never recommend it to anyone. It takes more than a good housekeeping staff and clean room to demand the rates they charge.

Very friendly accommodating staff and great location. Only 1 block from Fisherman's Wharf, and a 10 minute walk to Pier 39. I would highly recommend this hotel. As a vacation hotel, you can't get too much closer to shopping and seeing the sights on the Wharf. If you are not opposed to walking, you can get just about any where on the Embarcadero.

The hotel was very clean and updated. The next time I’m in San Francisco I’ll definitely be back here because it’s so close to everything so it makes it convenient to walk. And I did enjoyed that they were taking steps to prevent the spread of Covid. They checked our vaccine cards, they are requiring the masks, And there are hand sanitizer stations everywhere in the hotel, even in the rooms. So it made me feel safe to stay at the hotel.

Great visit, hotel was very clean and accommodating. The cleaning staff was very thorough in sanitizing everything. Disposable coffee cups and single use water/beverage cups were provided in the bathroom and bedroom area. In room coffee service was maintained. Refrigerator was stocked with bottled water upon arrival. Night manager on duty was a kind, professional and extremely competent woman for check-in and check-out. She was warm and friendly when greeting comings and going. The location is positioned well fisherman’s wharf exploration by foot. The hot water shower was welcomed after my trip. The bedding and mattresses were so comfortable, that I slept very well despite traveling from eastern to pacific time. Lighting and outlets for charging were abundant. A nice touch was night lights provided bedside. Translucent and darkened shades allowed me to enjoy window views and shield from sun. I enjoyed my state and Highly recommend this hotel. I plan to return at the first opportunity.
