This hotel is fantastic and the only negative points to call them that way would be the cost of parking and the location, but, like everything in life, depends for who. I chose this hotel knowing it is located in Fishermans Wharf which for many may be convenient and for many others not. You need to know where you want...

ViajeroSecret, Thank you for the kind words, "just want we wanted," wow! That's truly awesome to hear. You are right, we are centrally located to what many visitors come to see San Francisco for, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and many other sights. I understand parking can seem expensive for someone from out of town, however, our parking is very...

We stayed here for a week in September 2012. We chose it for it's location and on the back of TripAdvisor reviews. For us the location was perfect and the service friendly and professional. We loved the free wine tasting around the fire in the lobby in the evenings (although we didn't make it every night). A great experience and...

SouthPerthAustralia, As a frequent traveler myself, I could not agree with you more, it's about the service! I'm happy to hear the team was able to take such good care of you during your visit. We hope to see you again soon, we'll have a glass of wine waiting from 5-6 as always. Cheers!

Stayed here with my wife for one night during a week long business trip to Northern and Central California. Here is a list of pros and cons that I feel will help future travelers. Pros... - Excellent service. Especially Taylor at the front desk. We were initially given the worst room in the hotel upon arrival, literally. Room #212. I...

We arrived at the hotel and the valet service was excellent. This hotel made you feel like you were a special guest. I loved the decor and they staff was so helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying at Fisherman's Wharf.

We recently spent five nights here and enjoyed it quite a bit. Normally, I'd never stay in touristy Fisherman's Wharf, but we drug our heels on reserving a place and didn't book until the night before we arrived. Other options were unavailable or outrageously expensive (even more outrageous than the $400 / night we spent here). I ended up booking...

I don't know if I'm just becoming a hotel snob or what, but while I liked this hotel I didn't think it was "wow", or even as luxurious as other Kimpton properties I've stayed in. Location could not be better for easy access to public transportation, and easy walking distance to the Fishermans Wharf area. The doormen and bell hops...

This is a good class character hotel in a good location. A little let down by a lack of staff character - with the exception of the excellent doormen. Once in the front door it felt impersonal. But - otherwise good rooms, free wine tasting, kids welcome. A good place to spend a few nights.

The pictures that have been posted by travelers tell most of the story of this Kimpton gem. That squiggly-design wallpaper you may have noticed in the bathroooms is actually a stylized rendering of octopus tentacles. Also, the carved star in the "compass" design on the headboard of the bed spins. Don't ask me how I know. My only issue was...

Great place, great location. Staff is attentive, helpful and pleasant. Fabulous location, walking distance to all the places that matter. Have stayed at downtown hotels and this one is much nicer, newer and vibrant. Won't go wrong here.

NYGF, Glad to hear you had such a pleasant stay! We do count ourselves lucky for being able to be housed within the Old Cannery Building, it certainly does make us a unique property. Plus, as you said, the location is tough to beat! We hope to see you again soon, and thank you for your feedback. Cheers!
