Hotel Zoe Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

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?

We booked this hotel on “spec” and were extremely happy with the whole experience. Located just a block or so from the waterfront and just minutes from the CBD this hotel ticked all the boxes. The room had an extremely comfortable bed, sitting area, clean bathroom and most of all was quiet. The complimentary coffee cart down in the foyer is a nice touch every morning, as is the alfresco outdoor heated sitting area. Check in was quick and easy as was the confirmed late checkout when requested The waterfront was literally 2 minutes walk From not only Fisherman’s Wharf but also spectacular unobstructed views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate. The whole waterfront precinct offers great dining, coffee, activities, views and miles of walking/exercising/sightseeing tracks. We’ll definitely be looking to stay here again when next in San Francisco. Read less

The best thing about the hotel is the wonderful staff members who really went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay, big thanks especially to Mary who was so lovely to us. My only negative would be the resort fees, however this is becoming common in lots of resorts and at least with Hotel Zoe you actually get benefits from the fees. Read less

Nice clean hotel in a good location, perfect for Fisherman’s Wharf and sight seeing round San Francisco. Definitely recommend a room facing the internal courtyard as the main roads outside were busy and as it is only 4 floors would have been a tad noisy during the night. We spoke with someone earlier in the week when I asked about a late checkout as our our flight times were changed due to the current situation. We were told this would not be an issue until it came to the morning of our departure. Initially I was offered a complimentary hour up to 1:00pm but said having already asked for a 4.00pm checkout I was then asked to pay $69.99 (for 3 hours!) Obviously during this period of uncertainty I understand hotel policies but would not have paid that amount under any circumstances. When asked if this was negotiable or if we could discuss it further the gentleman behind the desk abruptly said he was not going to argue and just extend our stay. We very much appreciated the extra few hours and the extremely cheery and helpful lady who eventually checked us out but not the manner in which it was dealt with earlier on in the day!! Also note that there is a $35 per day tax (on top of ALL the other taxes you get charged) for which you can save $5 per day by not having your room cleaned. Read less
