It was a good stay. Hotel staff was friendly and courteous. Italian food at restaurant pescatore was simply delicious. The location is awesome on the fisherman's wharf. Lots of amenities including personal concierge.

Hi Ed K - Thanks for staying with us and for the 5 Star review. Happy to hear you enjoyed the hotel and our fabulous location. Being right in the middle of fisherman’s wharf, you can’t beat the location for shops, restaurants and all the activities near the wharf and around Pier 39. Hope to see you again soon.

We had a few days in SF at The Tuscan before a recent cruise, and the reviews on this site, as usual, were a big help. Key point for us...this hotel is within walking distance of Pier 35 which is the cruise boat terminal for Princess. Well, I consider it walking distance...it took about 10-15 minutes of rolling the suitcases...

Hi Willie W - Thanks for staying with us and for the 5 Star review. I appreciate all of your kind comments, feedback, insight and traveler tips!

Even after having read all of the positive reviews on TA, I was very pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed my stay at the Tuscan in San Francisco. The hotel is a great base for exploring the city, especially the Fisherman's Wharf area, but also very convenient for accessing the cable car system. There is a popular happy hour each...

We choose to stay here because we found it was the most affordable option for the location. The hotel was very nice-nicely decorated, clean and very welcoming. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. The location was fantastic-just a few blocks away from fisherman's wharf. We choose to stay here again

I was very surprised at how nice this hotel was, I wasn't excpecting much from a Best Western. It is nicely decorated/updated and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.

We spent 5 nights here split at either end of our tour of California & Vegas. The reception staff were very welcoming & helpful.

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in to this hotel. We were travelling with our 1 year old, and the first thing the hotel staff did was let him pick out a toy from their "treasure chest".

This was not the conference hotel (it was a 20 min walk away). When possible, always stay at Best Westerns. The Tuscan was outstanding. Great location. Great place to stay. If I visit with my family, we would stay here.

Staff were generally nice and helpful. The room was sunny, but seemed quite old with a few attempts to make it look current. Shower faucet didn't work well, hair dryer overheated and shut down after 30 sec. Room service was prompt, but eggs were greasy. Happy hour and free coffee a rev over-rated, I think.

Hi Nester321 - Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your comments.
