Hotel Zoe Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

Virgin rating

The hotel

It’s said that life in San Francisco is best lived on the waterfront. Where better to sample it than at Hotel Zoe, a stroll from Pier 39 and the bay. Wander out and you’ll stumble upon many fabulous shops and eateries, or pop into the hotel’s Italian trattoria for homemade crab ravioli or roasted sea bass. They serve a delicious breakfast too - why not grab a table on the sidewalk and watch as Mason Street comes to life?

Stayed here for 5 nights as recommended by BA, staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble. I decided to upgrade the room as I felt the bed was too small as I’m a bit of a ‘roller’ in the night so opted for a king bed. Easy walking distance to all shops restaurants very convenient for Fishermens walk.

Had a stay here for 3 nights in 3 rooms. Our room was large & clean & modern. Had a bit of noise from a fan which we couldn’t locate an off button for but slept through that. The other 2 rooms were considerably smaller & had large air con units but all rooms were clean & sufficient. The cleaning staff deserve a mention as they were all very… Read more
Had a stay here for 3 nights in 3 rooms. Our room was large & clean & modern. Had a bit of noise from a fan which we couldn’t locate an off button for but slept through that. The other 2 rooms were considerably smaller & had large air con units but all rooms were clean & sufficient. The cleaning staff deserve a mention as they were all very pleasant & didn’t complain about the bottles - even joked about the champagne! The location is excellent for the Wharf area and the hop on / off bus just across the road. Staff were really helpful especially Jose who helped with our questions & organised taxis as required. Breakfast was a bonus - large bowl of fruit & croissant or toast. Staff in the restaurant went out of their way to help when an early take out breakfast was required for half of our group. Read less

Firstly before I dive in to the reasons I wouldn’t stay here again, what I will say is the staff are super friendly. So this has no reflection on them. Also Fisherman’s Wharf is the best area to stay in SF. I just think there’s better places than this hotel.

Firstly before I dive in to the reasons I wouldn’t stay here again, what I will say is the staff are super friendly. So this has no reflection on them. Also Fisherman’s Wharf is the best area to stay in SF. I just think there’s better places than this hotel. Firstly, the hotel doesn’t have a gym, it’s in another hotel a few blocks away, like a good 15 min walk. The tea and coffee served from 6am-10am is just filter coffee and tea. Like there’s nothing great about it. We used the restaurant and the food was bland and nothing to talk about positively. The room itself was fine and clean. There was also free bottled water available at reception. Don’t pay for valet parking, the car park is literally across the road at leas than half the crazy price the hotel is charging for valet parking. Also, remove absolutely everything from your car. We saw 2 cars had been broken in to. Keep your stuff with you or ask the hotel to keep it if you have to check out and want to still be out and about in SF. Read less

Room was clean, very comfortable and allthe staff were amazing. Extremely friendly, especially Jose who couldn’t do enough for us and adorable Frank the concierge who was very knowledgeable and helpful. Both contributed to an enjoyable stay. We highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the Fisherman’s Wharf area.

Incredible service and suite on the top floor with Golden Gate in the distance. Very clean establishment. Quiet in rooms. Easy walking distance to the wharf. Convenient valet parking with text ahead of time service with excellent valets. Don’t hesitate to recommend. Definitely go to the restaurant in hotel. Amazing place.
