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.

Breakfast is a real bonus and there is something for everyone; from traditional US breakfast to fresh fruit and yoghurt, cereal and bagels etc. Yes, the queue can get very long ... but the team work really hard inside to get you seated asap. The longest we waited was 20 mins but other days the wait was much shorter. Would recommend this as a place to stay. Read less

The hotel is located very conveniently right at Fisherman’s Wharf. Very friendly staff and nice clean rooms. The kids just loved the breakfast. There was a queue for breakfast in the morning but waiting times were no longer than 15-20 mins before being seated.

We chose this hotel due to its location in Fisherman’s Wharf. Great hotel and as many have said the breakfast is fantastic. Yes the lines are long at peak times but the breakfast staff are very efficient and cleared tables very quickly. There are bus stops by the hotel and cable car stops close by. Also great location for the ferry to Alcatraz… Read more

Also great location for the ferry to Alcatraz and Sausalito. There are places to eat close by, lots on Pier 39 which is a 5 minute walk away. Would definitely recommend! Read less
