Holiday Inn Express - Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

Virgin rating

The hotel

In the middle of Fisherman's Wharf, you'll find yourself in a great spot, close to PIER 39 and Ghirardelli Square. The famous cable car turnaround is just outside too, so you can easily get to other neighbourhoods. There's a smart, maritime theme throughout the hotel making it a warm, relaxing respite from the city. And an American breakfast will fire you up for the day. Why not head over to the notorious ex-prison Alcatraz, wander around vibrant Chinatown or take a walk down to the Golden Gate Bridge.

+ Breakfast was great, but no bacon over four mornings. Location to Fisherman's Wharf was also good. - We were charged a "Wharf District Amenity Fee" of $20.37 for EACH day of our stay! When we asked for a refund, we were refused. This is not a city tax; it is a hidden fee that was not disclosed when we paid for the room in advance, or when we… Read more

When we asked for a refund, we were refused. This is not a city tax; it is a hidden fee that was not disclosed when we paid for the room in advance, or when we checked in. Additionally, the elevator is extremely slow; we took the staff elevator when we moved our luggage the last day and took the stairs all the rest of the time. Read less

I can’t praise ALL of the staff enough! They were lovely, very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was very tidy and cleaned to an exceptionally high standard every day. Only downside was the breakfast, but that’s more a personal preference and plenty of people seemed to enjoy it. I would definitely stay here again, the location is great… Read more

This hotel is situated perfectly for a San Francisco visit. It was an easy 5-6 minute walk to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Marketplace. It was about 5 minutes from the Powell St-Market St trolley and a few minutes beyond that to a convenient bus stop for the #28 bus that took us to the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center.

This hotel is situated perfectly for a San Francisco visit. It was an easy 5-6 minute walk to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Marketplace. It was about 5 minutes from the Powell St-Market St trolley and a few minutes beyond that to a convenient bus stop for the #28 bus that took us to the Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center. The free breakfast was top-notch and the bed was SO comfortable! We utilized the complementary concierge service a few times and they expertly plotted our best routes for public transit, recommended restaurants, etc. We also paid the extra fee for the attached parking garage and valet service…parking in San Francisco is a nightmare and it was such a relief to know that our rental car was safe and secure.

We parked our car outside hotel during check in process. I left my laptop bag on front passenger side floor. While I was parking, hotel vallet told us that it was ok park there. During checking the hotel front desk did not warn us anything about the car break-ins being common. We went upstairs to keep luggage upstairs and came downstairs and somebody had smashed window and took my laptop bag. During parking to checkin process, we were not once warned about the break-ins common in SF. There were no signs at front desk or in parking warning customers about the break-ins. After the break-in the hotel front desk did not show any empathy. They just shrugged it off as a common occurrence in SF. They did not seem to care that their customer got robbed right in front of the hotel. Hotel front desk seemed in different and did not care. This was all very new to me especially coming from Texas.

Stayed here 2 nights. Room was spacious and clean. The elevators are as slow as molasses. Check-in and out was super easy. The staff were all really friendly. Breakfast was extremely busy both days. Regular fare: scrambled eggs, sausage patties, links, pancake maker and all the continental things. Not great but better than nothing. Location is… Read more

Regular fare: scrambled eggs, sausage patties, links, pancake maker and all the continental things. Not great but better than nothing. Location is very central. We used a few different MUNI buses and caught a cable car within a few blocks of the hotel. Read less
