Located in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf neighbourhood, the hotel is in close proximity to some of “The City’s” most iconic tourist attractions; Alcatraz Cruises (Pier 31), Sea lions (Pier 39) and Lombard Street – the “crookedest street in the world” – are all within a 15-20 minute walk, and if you don’t fancy walking there’s easy access to cable cars and frequent bus tours.
Bedrooms are nautically themed and perhaps more importantly, comfortable (albeit a little dark). The wardrobe is a little baffling…I’m not sure how it fits in with the ‘nautical theme’ as it looks more like a filing cabinet than anything else!
Windows and walls are a little on the thin side so external noise can sometimes cause problems (or annoyance!)
Although the hotel offers breakfast we opted to dine out at the nearby Hollywood Café. There’s usually a queue to get in (which is always a good sign) but it’s well worth the wait – their signature hash browns are to die for and us Brit’s love a good queue anyway.
