Riu Plaza Fishermans Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

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.

Excellent location, the bed was very comfortable and the service was great. The only thing was the breakfast was more of a snack than a breakfast and you can’t pick the snacks either. its just what you get in the bag.

Our stay was very comfortable and the staff was excellent, but the best part is that you are SO close to everything at Fisherman's Wharf. The only part that wasn't great was the pillows, but we made due. It was wonderful!

It's not the hotel's fault, but I probably would stay somewhere else next time, because we parked our car on the street next to the hotel only to come back with four windows broken. And nothing was in our car to steal! Apparently there are more than 25,000 reports per year of vehicles being vandalized in San Francisco, but you'd hope that the… Read more
