This is a really good spot. Worth asking for a room with a view, I had a view of Alcatraz which was fun. Bar downstairs has nice outdoor space. Only higgles were dirty windows and low water pressure so showering was uninspiring.

We chose this hotel in part because of its outstanding location just across from the water at Fisherman's Wharf, close to many attractions, and in part because of the many positive reviews. The photos online looked a bit strange, but we decided to go for it anyway. We were very impressed with the comfortable bed, spacious room, free bike rentals,... More

I stayed at this hotel for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The room I stayed in was fairly big with a queen bed, sleeper couch, bar fridge desk and chair.
