We started our honeymoon here and it was just perfect. Our room was looking out over the bay with a great view of alcatraz. The hotel was always warm and welcoming and the staff were lovely and helpful. We stayed in a bay view king room and it was more than big enough for two people. The bed was really comfortable. There was also free wifi which is always appreciated We couldn't have asked for more.

Hello and thank you, AudreyDee!
The rooms are quite spacious (especially by city standards!) aren't they? We're lucky to have that as a feature of the historic brick facade and the way they modernized the whole interior here. We like to think of it as the best charm of the olden days with all the comforts of a modern hotel (like the fast, free wifi that you mention). I hope that the hotel will form a great backdrop in your honeymoon trip memories, and perhaps we'll see you for future anniversaries, too?!

Hello, LMS1983! I'm delighted that you loved the whole experience, and it is so perfect to read of Stephen the doorman as a "breath of fresh air." That he is!

Stayed here for 4 nights with my wife during first week in December. We experienced one of the best customer service in a hotel in US.. the rooms are very clean and has a great decor. It is very quiet ad well.. It is in a great location and ofcourse very close to our favorite place "Ghirardeli Square".. you can also walk along the marina from the hotel to the golden gate bridge. The cable car ride starts right next to the hotel.. One of the nights was even special when we bumped into Tracy Morgan at the lobby ! Valet parking is pricey, but worth it.. Hey it is SFO!! There is a old cafe across (behind ( the hotel and they serve awesome Irish Coffee. . Check it out..

Hello, anonymous fan! I see you went out and got in quite a few adventures. In case you hadn't heard already, we offer free bike rental each morning on a first-come, first-serve basis. That can be another fun way to get to (and over) the Golden Gate Bridge! Just brace yourself: the Bridge alone measures 1.7 miles long ;).

The rooms here are interesting and a bit quirky given that the whole building is a renovated warehouse - it made for a very enjoyable experience and the location on Fisherman's wharf can't be beat. The staff was pleasant and their is an evening wine reception. My new favorite hotel in SF!

Hi, and happy new year, A2FreqTrav. It's fantastic to read that we are your new favorite hotel in San Francisco! You're right, the historic location and features here do give us sort of an "easy win" in a character/charm contest, but I also give credit to the designers who built found a tasteful and nautical yet whimsical look for the interior. Tonight, I am pouring at the wine hour you mention, and I look forward to that weekly moment of "false popularity" I feel when accenting the hot toddies with whipped cream :)!!

Fantastic location, right on Fisherman's Wharf.

Quirky, renovated building, nice rooms, although the bathroom was a little cramped. The bathrobes are a very novel idea, although not sure how they fitted with the rest of the theme if the hotel!!?!?

The evening wine event was a nice touch, although a little tempting to keep drinking the flowing wine!

Concierge was very helpful and all staff were welcoming. The bottle of wine in the room on arrival was very nice.

A hotel I would definitely recommend.

Thank you, Rebecca. The robes we can't claim credit for, but they are fun, aren't they? The animal prints are a Kimpton Hotels design. We try to have some fun at our hotels, including the robes, the goldfish-on-request, and of course the wine party that you mention. It's a fun way for us to interact with our guests, and for our guests to get to know each other! It can be quite fun to witness folks from across the globe swapping their tales and tips about the city.

We were so pleased with our choice. The hotel lobby and decor was inviting and relaxing. We enjoyed making use of the happy hour , grabbing a glass of wine and relaxing on the comfy sofas! The room was a good size with everything we needed. Clean and comfortable.the hotel is in a great location on Fisherman's Wharf. Easy reach to piers and tram stops. Make sure you visit In n Out Burger (a minutes walk from the hotel) - best burgers ever!

Hello, Francesca M! You're making me hungry for California's signature fast food... it is fun what a range of options are available at the waterfront, from burgers and to the very fine dining at Gary Danko. You can also have some Irish coffees behind us at the Buena Vista and feel "warm from the inside out" for an evening beach walk at the little aquatic park beach. The views are astounding!

Thanks, TunkTunk! Congrats on the marriage - I'm glad the honeymoon vino was a nice treat, and of course how can we go wrong with a wintertime hot cocoa bar, right :)? Did you also get a chance to check out the spiced bourbon "hot toddies" at our nightly party? So cozy for the holidays! Happy New Year and hope to see you for those anniversaries ahead...
