By far the most unprofessional staff I have ever been around. Rooms are overpriced for what it is. Zero amenities. They basically took the holiday inn staff and put them in their lobby. Save your money and book elsewhere. Trash of a hotel

A Club Pulse by Marriott is a low amenity property in a good urban location. Be prepared for a small room, no food or beverage service on property and no kitchen (these are not vacation club villas).

A Club Pulse by Marriott is a low amenity property in a good urban location. Be prepared for a small room, no food or beverage service on property and no kitchen (these are not vacation club villas). To me these feel more like upscale hostel rooms. So, this Pulse in SF is in a fun location near fisherman’s wharf and the famous Lombard street. There is free coffee in the morning, and the staff is friendly. It’s clean, decor is on trend. But I couldn’t get past feeling like a piece of wood stacked in a pile — like this is a place built to house bus loads of group tour clients. It is not a good trade if you’re a vacation club owner. Once you pay for parking you might conclude it’s a better deal and more fun stay at a Fairfield Inn. The money you save can pay for a lot of Uber rides and you’ll feel more at home… Read less

Liked Chan and DeLaCruz Room décor interesting; early dockworker?

No sound proofing. Could hear steps in room above us at night keeping us awake. No food. Great location in Fisherman’s Wharf. Friendly front desk staff. Wouldn’t stay again due to noise. Very close to many restaurants and sit s at fisherman’s wharf. Guest laundry very accessible

Having traveled a lot during covid I have earned to set my expectations low for places to stay. This place still does daily house keeping (which most during my covid travels don't) and the welcoming back from a day out of town is nice. The location makes it very walkable to fisherman's wharf and other things. We would definitely stay here again… Read more
Having traveled a lot during covid I have earned to set my expectations low for places to stay. This place still does daily house keeping (which most during my covid travels don't) and the welcoming back from a day out of town is nice. The location makes it very walkable to fisherman's wharf and other things. We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to San Francisco. I feel like they care about us. Even the housekeeping in the hall says hi to us. It's the small things that make the difference and they do the small things Thank you! . Read less
