You shuold be able to simply hail one on the street it's not as wacky as you may be hearing but certainly not as professional or numerous as say in NYC. You could also just hop on an F line street car that takes you directly to Fisherman's Wharf -- Fare is $1.25 -- in fact I would probably do that vs. a cab but either way you should have no worries cuz youre in San Francisco and ain't no better place on earth!

Stan is right.....

Unless you have a lot of luggage, you'd be better off taking the F-line street car (you can't miss it, it stops right in front of the ferry building) and you'd save about $6 or $7.

If you choose to take a cab, you may want to walk a block up to the Hyatt since there are plenty of cabs lined up in front. Although the F line will get you to the hotel quite quickly, I've noticed that the trolleys have been quite crowded lately.
