I booked the Hotel Del Sol largely because it was in a decent location, but more for the fact that it had free parking and breakfast. If you are searching for hotels with free parking in San Francisco, you will find there are very few. There are lots of nice hotels i looked at booking, but they were charging $25 and up per night for parking. This hotel was within about 10-15 minutes walk to Fishermans Wharf (I have read people saying 5 mins, but either they were running or found a much better route than us!) and was a really nice hotel. I was expecting it to be pretty basic, but the room was really nice with a super comfy bed. The pool was quite small but was nice and warm and I had a good cool down in it after a long day walking around San Francisco. The breakfast was pretty good and was constantly being replenished. The neighbourhood felt really safe, and the noise (which I had read reviews about being bad) was not a problem. The stairs WERE really noisy for some reason and you could hear people walking up and down them, but that is only for a few seconds so wasnt a problem. There was some street noise on the Saturday night of our stay, but that is to be expected in a busy city on a Saturday night. We went to Alcatraz and did a Segway Tour, both of which are highly recommended. We also ate at Boudins on Fishermans Wharf (where you can watch them making the bread) and this was also very good. This hotel was a really good base for our stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
