Stayed for 3 days to be near fisherman’s warf. It’s walking distance to everything! I don’t mind paying extra for that. Prepare $60(+tax) daily on valet parking but it’s worth it. Clean, large rooms. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast was great but it gets busy, be patient finding a table or just eat in your room. The breakfast selection was great… Read more

Even though we got a supposed “good deal” through Priceline we paid too much ($274) and then they charged us $60 for parking . Big ripoff .Staff were quite nice . Room was close to Spartan ,Breakfast was OK . Location is good . Wifi was good . Bed was OK.

Very comfortable hotel in a great part of SAN Francisco only issue we had with our booing was the cost of accommodation is expensive,especially if you are converting from pounds sterling . The hotel is close to all ferry crossings.

This property is top notch! Affordable in a very $$ city. Best shower I have found in a hotel in a long time.... lots of instant hot water. Every employee I encountered went above and beyond to make sure I had what I needed. Gio, the manager, was extremely helpful with my tricky reservation issues and I was very pleased with the result!

Typical HIX, located in a great spot convenient to Fisherman’s Wharf and trolley turn around. Rooms are well kept and modern but TINY and if you’re “lucky”, you get a room with the view of absolutely nothing except another part of the hotel (call ahead to avoid these - it’s awful and the windows are not tinted preventing people from seeing in). … Read more
