Queen room had very little room to move around, put toiletries in the bathroom and had only 1-18" rack to hang towels & wash clothes. May be ok for business traveler. Restaurant was ok. Wine reception was good.

Hi georgel674 - Sorry to learn that you were not satisfied with your visit. The Tuscan Is a European style boutique hotel and the rooms are definitely "cozy". Indeed, rooms with only one queen bed will be the "coziest" of all rooms. We do offer larger rooms at the hotel for those who prefer a little more leg room. Anytime...

This was a very nice hotel. It was clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. It was an excellent location for out first visit to San Francisco as it was within a short walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf and all the great restaurants and tourist activities. We would definitely recommend it.

This hotel is brilliant, it was our first visit to San Francisco so we did not know what to expect, the staff are so friendly and the wine tasting a must. Also the location is excellent for the Warf and Alcatraz, we spent 3 nights and 2 days here and were able to walk to all the attractions we wanted...

We spent the last night of a five-day California trip at the Tuscan. We chose the hotel based on the reviews and location to the Warf. The hotel staff was warm, friendly, and very helpful from the moment we arrived until checkout. The room, while very small, was clean and comfortable. We would recommend the hotel In the Fisherman’s Warf...

Short walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Hop On Hop Off bus, and the pier where the Alcatraz tour leaves from. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Free wine and appys in the lobby at 5:00 was a nice touch. Very friendly and helpful staff. Bruschetta and mussels and clams in the restaurant in the hotel were awesome! Went back...
