Hotel well situated near fisherman's wharf area feels safe compared to some areas in San Francisco. Hotel is nice although we were upgraded. Rooms nice and clean and comftable.

Staff very helpful. Overall l enjoyed my stay here although hotel had limited choice. Read less

We came for one night as BA had cancelled our flight and we had to arrange new flights and ended up staying another night. We had spent 10 nights at the fishmans whalf inn and once we arrived we wished we had spent the whole holiday at this hotel. It is much more professional run. The room was so much cosy and better the bathroom was cleaner and better. The reception staff were so much better the TV was better. You have a fridge in your room plenty of towels in the bathroom the curtains worked properly we had to buy bulldog clips to keep the curtains together in the whalf inn. The whole hotel is 1000% better it was such a pity it was only for one night. Service is excellent and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel. Read less

Good hotel, but very expensive compared to our other hotel stays during our four states ten day two thousand mile motorcycle tour. Friendly staff, resolved a billing issue. No pool. No included breakfast.

I was being proactive and booked the hotel 6 months in advance. Upon check in I found out that the current room rate was $220 less than what I booked 6 months earlier. The Manager on site agreed I should get the current rate but was not able to change. The Director had to make the change. After getting the runaround for over 24 hours, the Director finally contacted me and refused to match the current rate, so with Taxes I was out over $250. I contacted IHG (parent company) twice regarding this unethical practice, with a commitment that someone from corporate would contact me in less than 48 hours. 6 days later, I'm still waiting. After being an IHG member for 17 years for business and personal travel this is they way I am being treated???? I cannot support a company that advocates unethical behavior. This is the last IHG hotel I will ever stay in. Unbelievable a company of this size is more interested in cheating me out of $250 than taking care of a loyal customer. By the way this is a pretty crappy property and wasn't even worth the current rate. Read less
