The hotel is very conveniently located if you are dropping of a rental car at Avis' Beach street location.

Excellent location for the Wharf area. Dining prices a bit high. They really could use more concierge services as Everybody has questions. We had to wait a long time for that. Rooms could use a little updating. Other than that , would maybe stay here again

As others have stated, the location is great for Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39 and Ghiradelli Square. However, the hotel rooms need a remodel!
