Hotel Zoe Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

The hotel

If life in San Francisco is best lived on the waterfront, Hotel Zoe has one of the prime pitches for enjoying it – with a corner plot just blocks from Pier 39. This Fisherman’s Wharf favourite only reopened its doors recently after a big makeover, so it feels fresh, fabulous, and thoroughly modern. Its address means you’re just a stroll from Ghirardelli Square, the beachfront, and the neighbourhood’s top shopping and dining venues. Dining out may be tempting, but so is the hotel’s own trattoria, Pescatore. With its windows overlooking Mason Street, and tables spilling out onto the sidewalk, this Italian-inspired eatery brings you classic pizza and pasta dishes, as well as specialities like osso buco and roasted sea bass (and delicious breakfasts too). And, for the perfect nightcap, Bar Zoe is a contemporary space, ideal for locally inspired cocktails, bubbles, beers, and small bites.

Great location, walkable to North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, the Exploratorium, etc. No good hotels in SF are cheap, and this one isn't either. But it's clean and modern and a good place to stay if you want to be more on the touristy side of town rather than Union Square or SOMA. We'd stay here again.

Spent 2 nights at the Hotel Zoe in a Wanderlust Suite, 2 adults and 2 kids. Check in was very underwhelming, felt like I was doing them a favour by being there, I’ve had better experiences at backpacker hotels in years of old. The hotel room was clean and spacious in the master bedroom, the lounge area and fold out couch area however was very tight. We were located on the fourth floor and there was still a lot of noise from outside the hotel, appreciate that’s not the hotels fault but it’s important if you’re a light sleeper. The fold out bed itself was horrible, in fact we removed the mattress from the base and placed it on the floor so we could get some sleep, the squeaking when it was on the base was very loud. Breakfast at Pescatore was ok although there are plenty of other options in the area. If you want to be located near Fisherman’s Wharf Zoe is an ok alternative although it’s not cheap; if you want customer service give it a miss. Just good, not great.... Read less

Best location to walk to almost everything in fisherman’s Wharf. Close to restaurants, shops, Alcatraz and Pier 39. Hotel is very cute. Rooms are clean, and stylish but a little small. Staff overall was great, except for one front desk worker who we found difficult to communicate with due to language issues. Would stay again.

It was a blessing in disguise that we stayed at this hotel after problems with our prearranged hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and the bathroom quite modern. The onsite restaurant was great!
