Riu Plaza Fishermans Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

Virgin rating

The hotel

Just a pleasant stroll from the shops and entertainment at Pier 39, and the ferry to Alcatraz, the Riu Plaza Fisherman’s Wharf makes a stellar base to explore from. Recently modernised, the hotel’s relaxed and friendly vibe is ideal after a day’s dim sum dining, cable car riding and selfie snapping. Your room is suitably airy and comfortable, you can kick back on the sun terrace by the outdoor heated pool, and, perhaps our favourite part, you can hangout by a crackling fire pit in the outdoor living area.

There can be few hotels so perfectly located to explore San Francisco. Walking distance to Fishermen’s Wharf, Alcatraz ferries etc. Deluxe rooms are comfortable but our view was of the car park exit and generator., but it really doesn’t matter as we were out all day, and the bed was very comfortable. Our rate included breakfast which was average, but plenty of choice. Felt secure and car park while not cheap ($45 plus 14% tax), is useful and not too expensive by SF standards. As they say, Location, Location, Location, and on that basis alone makes this hotel very attractive. Read less

This hotel is perfectly located, right by Pier 39 which is ideal as there is a lot there and a lot of tours go from there. The rooms are a good size, nice bathrooms and all the usual requirements. Breakfast is very good, loads of choice, hot and cold food, lots of it, variety of drinks, good service. It's buffet but you don't have to wait long to get your food despite being super busy. Staff all helpful and the fire pits outside the hotel are a nice place to sit in the evening. Highly recommended and if I needed a hotel here again I would absolutely book this one. Read less

The room was quick spaceous, clean and well presented. As with a few of the hotels we stayed at on our trip it seems like the self parking fee is a cash grab.

The room was quick spaceous, clean and well presented. As with a few of the hotels we stayed at on our trip it seems like the self parking fee is a cash grab. The Breakfast buffet was ok, I thought there was more variety however they had the same stuff just spilt it into 2 sides. Both left and right sides have the same food. Was funny there wa quite aline up to go in and some gentleman said "but i don't want to line up" when he was told the line starts over there. He then walked off in a huff. Read less
