Perfectly located for all the highlights of the bayside... and serendipitously for us (2 parents one teenage sugar fan) there is a wine tasting collective right out the front door- right next to a...

Around the corner from cable car turn around, just three blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and many restaurants to choose from all around. What makes this a great place though is the staff. Each and everyone go above and beyond and are very friendly. HINT- this is a part of the American Express 'Hotel Collection'. So book thru AMX travel agent,...

The Argonaut has a great location, with walking and trams able to get you anywhere in the city. We had a Bay View Suite with views of the Rock out the window. On arrival we were also surprised with a bottle of wine welcoming us to the hotel which was a lovely touch. Room itself was large and comfortable, i...

simon, At Noble House Hotels & Resorts, we believe in meticulously designing and operating a property to stand on its own merits. The unifying thread that connects each and every hotel is not the architecture or the amenities, but lies within the people - and the local culture - that make up Noble House Hotels & Resorts. Although each hotel's...

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at this hotel. A fantastic location, nicely decorated rooms with comfortable beds and good service. The restaurant serves good breakfast (pricey like what you would expect in SF). Dinner menu though was significantly more limited (still pricey). Overall, a nice break from chain hotels. No gym but went for a run from the hotel all...

Small boutique style hotel. Foyer opens up to a large and very charming sitting area! Comfy lounging chairs surround a fireplace and fill the room. Side tables for each setting make it easy to enjoy a drink. No wait service but the bar is close by. The restaurant was very good. The sous chef was the best! He made me...

The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable. Concierge quickly secured reservations, tickets, and in-room spa services. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel restaurant had great bar and good menu. The best part: the location. No more than a half mile walk to all the sites the Wharf has to offer, including fabulous dining spots, Boudin bakery, the sea lions...

Great location to everything you would want as a tourist in San Francisco. Right next to the cable cars and walking distance to pier 39 and gharidelli square.
