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.

The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to Ghirardelli square, Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf. Very clean and comfortable. Great buffet breakfast. We enjoyed it and will definitely stay here again.

Highly unorganized place. Had a res for a one week stay. My flight got delayed. I called front desk to advise i was coming one day later and to hold res. Man at desk said he would add to file. I arrive finally and they don’t have my reservation. 45 mins at check out with some ignorant unbothered staff. Avoid this run down hotel if you can.… Read more

I arrive finally and they don’t have my reservation. 45 mins at check out with some ignorant unbothered staff. Avoid this run down hotel if you can. They can’t seem to handle any modifications to reservations. Even with calling 7 times times to get a confirmation about the changes. 45 mins check in process because they deleted the res. After doing my due diligence and communications the delay. As a Wyndham diamond member vip check in is always a breeze. This Riu is a joke in comparison. Avoid Read less

We typically stay at 4-5 star chain hotels and this particular Riu was disappointing.

We typically stay at 4-5 star chain hotels and this particular Riu was disappointing. Rooms need updating and a thorough cleaning, the bathroom was tiny (and we got locked out of it at 5am so had to call maintenance) and the front desk check-in was more concerned about our vaccine cards for the breakfast the next morning than anything else. While I appreciate his concern for the health and welfare of everyone on site, I wish he would have been more concerned about the overall state of the hotel cleanliness not to mention the line was so long the next morning that we didn't even bother to wait for the $25 pp meal. There was no grab-n-go option so that was a complete waste of money as we had to go and eat elsewhere after all. We chose to stay here due to the proximity to Pier 33 where the night Alcatraz tour left from. Pier 39 was a zoo so next time will choose elsewhere to stay all together. Read less
