The hotel

When you're looking to wander around Fisherman's Wharf trying out the various dining options, enjoy the entertainment on Pier 39, and wander through the shops on Ghirardelli Square - well you couldn't pick a better location for your hotel than the Kimpton Alton. Just a stones thorugh from all of the above, you're also only about 15 minutes walk from San Francisco Bay where you can take the ferry to Alcatraz. Back at the hotel the rooms offer very comfy beds, and cosy vibes that will allow you to relax after a day exploring Golden Gate City. Even better, they offer complimentary tea and coffee to kick start your day, and a complimentary wine and beer hour to wind down at the end of it! Couple that with the option of in-room spa treatments and you really will feel relaxed on this city break. The service on hand at this hotel is indeed top notch - there's even complimentary scooters on hand to use for the little ones to roam the city!

God this staff is so nice! I was assisted by Stormi at check in when I had an issue with my card. Seriously I thought I was about to be stranded but she was kind, patient, and found a solution for me. She’s good karma. All of the staff was really pleasant .

I always stay in Union Square every time I visit San Francisco. I took a chance in staying at Fisherman’s Wharf and what a surprise - I found a gem. I had a wonderful experience at this hotel, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area, and the boutique style atmosphere reminds me of how things are back home.

My 3 night stay at the Kimpton Alton was fantastic! The hotel is lovely with friendly and welcoming staff, spacious and comfortable rooms, a lively lobby and restaurant, and a convenient location near Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach and a quick ride to downtown SF. I will definitely be back!
