We only stayed one night but it was ideal for catching the hop on hop off bus and walking along the piers at Fisherman's Wharf. There was no breakfast served, as there were renovations going on but we found a great cafe nearby which served a great breakfast. We also found a lovely seafood restaurant for our dinner. I thought that it was very expensive for the facilities on offer but we booked it on the advice of our travel agent who had also stayed there and advised that the price was average for an American hotel near to Fisherman's Wharf.

Fantastic location, and professional and friendly staff. The hotel was also pretty modern and the breakfast was decent. The double room was comfy and big, bathroom was great! WiFi was also ok. Would consider to stay here again - very family friendly.

Immculately clean and spacious rooms and excellent staff on front desk. The location is great and we have enjoyed coming to Fisherman's Wharf for many years and hope we can stay fit enough to come again. The hotel is lovely and peaceful and you would never know you were in a vibrant city from the peac and quiet of the hotel room. Denny's is on hand but can recommend 8 a.m. just across the road.
