“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on 22 Nov for 2 nights. It is centrally located to everything. We were doing the Alcatraz tour and spending the day at the Piers. Fishermans Wharf and Pier 39 as well as Pier 33 (Alcatraz) are all within walking distance. He hired Pleasant Limo to get us back and forth from the airport (Highly recommend them) as parking is limited and pricey. The evening wine at this hotel was really nice also. I thought maybe a little cup for sampling but was I surprise as they give you a small wine glass. Staff was wonderful from the moment we pulled up until we left. Very nice!

\Stayed 5 nights in early November. The Tuscan is a perfect boutique hotel - friendly, comfortable, like home away from home! Close to all the action but far enough from the hustle and bustle. Front desk, doormen, concierge, housekeeping and restaurant personnel very courteous and hospitable. In particular we felt very welcomed by Roy C at the front desk who always greeted us by name and showed genuine interest in our daily adventures, adding immeasurably to the enjoyment of our visit to SF. Will recommend this charming hotel to our friends and will surely return.

Room Tip: the courtyard is quiet with a charming view

Green Features: very pleased with the enviro saving on optional unnecessary daily changes in towels and linen. housekeeping does a great job.

2 blocks from the wharf Rooms were nice but small and they definitely needed black out curtains. They had shutters and it did not keep the light out Bedding was ok if you like feather beds. We like a firmer mattress. Wine tasting was a nice touch. We did that once. I would probably stay somewhere else next time only because a like a darker room. Ross and Cost plus around the corner and grocery store on the next block. Also we were on the 4th floor in the rear and the view was of a roof. I did like the water with lemon in the lobby and the staff
were nice.

Room Tip: No view on the rear of the building and farther from elevators

This hotel had clean and comfortable beds. We never sleep well at hotels but this time we slept like babies. Friendly and professional staff. The atmosphere was cozy and the location is excellent. Will stay here again!

This hotel is centrally located to all the attractions in SF. There were plenty of things to do within walking distance, a couple blocks from the Fishermans Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, and only a cable car ride away from the Union Square. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. We did not take advantage of the evening wine and cheese but were told by other guests that it was wonderful.

Enjoyed all aspects of the hotel. rooms were cheery and very clean, bed very comfortable. Close to all attraction, just a 2 blocks to Pier 39, jump on a tour bus for a ride around town, and walk to the cable car. All the staff are very professional and can handle any request. They have a great restaurant with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Excellent food and friendly bar.
