I could go on and on about this place. But I’ll make it simple for you: cozy rooms, arrange to stay in a room with a view of the bridge, eat next door at Perry’s, take a ferry ride to Sausalito. My pick for date nights and for housing out-of-towners.

This hotel was amazing from start to finish. I stayed one night with a friend as a stay-cation. We are locals to the SF Bay Area and were looking for a fun spot to have a Girls Getaway. The room was clean, well appointed and we had the most amazing view of the Bay Bridge and waterfront. The staff were friendly, helpful and very attentive and it was convenient to have a valet handle the parking for us. This location can serve as a great starting and ending point for a great time in the city I love SF!

I stayed at Harbor Court for the past two business trips and both stays have been absolutely remarkable! Luis checked me in in January and Jessica checked me in in February. Both welcomed me with the warmest service and went out of their way to ensure I had the best, most comfortable stay possible. Throughout the stay, they remembered me and smiled and waved as I walked into and out of the hotel. Their service is so memorable that I had to take the time to write this review and will make Harbor Court my priority hotel going forward. I told my coworkers about my experience and all three canceled their reservations at other hotels to stay at Harbor Court. They did not regret it and you won’t either! Thank you so much, Luis and Jessica, for all you’ve done to make my experience so pleasurable. Side note - the rooms are clean, sophisticated and comfortable. The view is also unbeatable!

My husband and I stayed for an overnight for my birthday. We live next city over, but wanted a special date night. The hotel was very reasonably priced so I wasn’t sure if it was a “budget” hotel. It was not - it was very nice for low price. While the room is small, the amenities are large. Wine reception 5-7. The Embarcadero and ferry building is across the street. Gym privileges next door. Free breakfast. Spacious and inviting Lobby. All the employees were super nice. There was even a special gift in room for My birthday. Would recommend to anyone. Will be back.

Me and my family stayed at Harbor Court Hotel for my birthday in October, it was our first trip to San Francisco in over a decade. Needless to say we were very pleased. Our room was spacious and, while the bed was a tad too soft for my liking, my better half was much satisfied by it. The view was also splendid, and the location in SoMa was convenient and ideal for tourists like us. No complaints about the hotel stuff - the lobby was packed when we arrived, but the check-in was still quick. We would definitely recommend this, as we believe this is a hotel with a good price value.

My experience with Harbor Court has left me deeply disappointed and frustrated. I had made a reservation for an event in San Francisco, including a significant amount of money totaling $520. Unfortunately, right before our departure, I tested positive for COVID-19. In the interest of public safety and the well-being of other hotel guests, my party and I decided it would be irresponsible to proceed with our travel plans. We promptly contacted the hotel, explaining our situation and the ethical dilemma we faced. To our dismay, we were met with a refusal to refund our $500, and were informed that the hotel no longer had a COVID policy in place. While we understand that policies can evolve, the lack of flexibility and understanding exhibited by Harbor was disheartening. In these challenging times, where health and safety should be paramount, we expected a more compassionate response. It is not only about the money but also about the principle of supporting responsible and ethical behavior, especially when dealing with a highly contagious virus. We had hoped for understanding, if not a full refund, given the exceptional circumstances. This experience has left a lasting impression, and unfortunately, I cannot recommend Harbor Court to others based on this lack of understanding and empathy. I sincerely hope that others may have a more considerate experience in the future.

So happy to be waking up here this morning! The hotel was so accommodating, we were dropped off at their door looking for a room at 1:30 in the morning (family emergency, ER trip) and Carlos could not have been kinder. He quickly got us checked in, and even gave us a glass of wine while it processed. The room has a fantastic view, nicely decorated and is very quiet. Will definitely stay here again!
