Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I hesitate to share this because I want to ensure there'll still be a room for me, but the Harbor Court Hotel is too special to keep to myself! This boutique hotel is in an enviable location on the Embarcadero, a stone's throw from the famous Farmer's Market & food hall at the Ferry Building, and the beautiful Bay Bridge. My hubby & I had an amazing room with windows that were full of the twinkling lights of the Bay Bridge...just stunning! The hotel has a vintage feel to it without going overboard (I'm looking at you, Ace Hotel!) and pays homage to the historical YMCA building. Our suite was very, very clean, and well appointed with decor that was nicely edited. The staff was very warm and welcoming, especially Ralph, the hard-working valet...love him! The hotel offers some nice specials so be sure to check out the website. We'll be back sooner than later!

Hotel's Favourite
We loved it here! When we arrived they helped with our luggage and Devin and Jevon were so nice, accommodating and very helpful. They gave us great tips on places to visit while our stay in SF. All the staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were nice, clean and had a comfortable bed. They have complimentary coffee, tea and donuts in the morning. There’s bikes you can take for a stroll at no charge and free wine tasting from 5pm-6pm. The hotel was super cute with beautiful views from our room over the bay. We’ll be staying here from now on when visiting SF. Loved everything about this hotel!

Formerly a YMCA, this hotel has been FULLY renovated. Everything is new, modern, clean, and functional. The staff is very pleasant & helpful. We enjoy the 5 pm wine bar, the views of the lights on the Bay Bridge and the Ferry building. The rooms facing The Embarcadero have a great view of the Bay bridge from the windows. The Embarcado station is a few minutes walk for BART and MUNI access. The F line takes you to Fisherman's Wharf. They had bicycles available as well. We have shared our "secret hotel" with friends who now also use the Harbor Court for their SF stays.

We came in to San Francisco for our friend‘s birthday party. This location could not have been more convenient and beautiful along the Embarcadero. The service was friendly, the accommodation was stylish, and we could walk straight out the door to many fun things. I would definitely stay here again.

We've heard about Harbor Court from friends that liked it. From check in, to the room, the experiences with and observations of staff, to check out, everything was exceptional. The room was quite small but comfortable. The bed, we knew was queen sized upon booking, was small for my 6'5" body but very comfortable. The view was simply amazing. The windows open a tiny bit and we appreciate the fresh air. The room was quiet. We heard no noises from other guests or hallway. The street noise was not too bad during the night with the windows open. We paid more for the bridge view room but were very happy with it. Every interaction with every staff member was positive. We went to a Giants game and the walk was an easy 20 minutes or so. We were there for the Saturday farmer's market at the Ferry Building almost directly across the street. The Ferry Building is a must visit for foodies! We had a good dinner at Perry's right next door. MUNI is close by for access to the whole City. We took a ferry to Sausalito from just across the street. I haven't stayed in many San Francisco hotels, and reviews say this one is a good value. I thought it was quite expensive. The additional costs really add up. First, we chose to valet the car at $65, plus parking tax of $9.10 per day and we should have parked in the garage around the block ourselves. We never used the car while there. There is a Guest Amenities Fee of $30.91 per day, which is also taxed. That fee includes bikes you can use, and you are paying for, so you should use them. And wine available from 5:00-6:00, Drink up! You're paying for that too. Take advantage of this time to meet other hotel guests. We met a super nice couple the one night we were there for wine time. And enjoy coffee and doughnuts in the lobby in the morning, yes, your amenities fee covers that as well. Our room rate was $228.65 per night. For the three nights we stayed our total with fees and taxes was $379.65 per night. Get the best bang for your buck by parking your own car, enjoy the wine hour with other guests, get your coffee and doughnuts and save on breakfast costs, and ride a bike!

Great location, clean, comfy bed, nice perks, and super friendly and accommodating staff. We enjoyed walking along the water in the morning and getting food at the nearby market. Great proximity to many public transportation lines. Good food and drink not too far

Really close to great bars and restaurants. Comfy room with great views! The hotel staff were very attentive and took great care of us. The price was also super reasonable for San Francisco waterfront. We have stayed here multiple times since it is close to our east bay residence.

Harbor Court Hotel is the place to be for reasonably price accommodations and yet a very upscale experience. Friendly yet professional staff. Nicely appointed rooms, with trendy nautical decor. The hotel is located close to dining and shopping. Rooms with a beautiful view of the San Francisco Bay are available.

Hello, we recently stayed at Harbor Court Hotel at what was a stressful trip to UCSF. The staff at the hotel made our trip less stressful by providing such great service. Francisco from the Valet Team was particularly helpful in loading our bags and standing by while we got safely in our car. We are very grateful to have been with such kindness! Addie and Mike
