“A fun stay at a very good hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

The Best Western location was the main reason we chose to stay there for our San Francisco visit, and it made for an outstanding experience. We were only a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf, filled with great restaurants, bakeries and fantastic views of the SF Bay. Fresh coffee in the morning and wine in the evening made for a lively time with plenty of interaction. We loved everything about this magic City, and the Best Western helped make it happen.

Very good hotel is a great location in the Fisherman's Wharf area. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Check in efficient and helpful despite being busy, and during the complimentary evening wine reception in the lobby. This is a daily event, as is the morning beverage service. Both were really welcome and a nice addition to an already high standard of service. Room was compact but well equipped, and the beds were comfortable. We spent a long time researching hotels for our two night stay, and were delighted with our choice.

Great hotel, very clean, friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. We (2 ladies) felt very safe walking everywhere we wanted to go. Super close to all the excitement near Fisherman's wharf and Pier 39. The restaurant was really nice as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. Ours looked out to the courtyard, was pretty but would of loved t see a...

We had booked at another hotel near the Warf but cancelled and re-booked at the Best Western Plus Tuscan. We had asked our travel agent to ask for a quiet room facing the courtyard (based on other guest reviews) and we also phoned to confirm a quiet room. The room was very quiet and clean. The service was exceptional from the concierge to the housekeeping to the concierge. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is just 2 blocks from the Warf. A Safeway and pharmacy is across the street from the hotel. We never had to take a cab as we walked everywhere. I would most definitely stay at this hotel again and have recommended it to others. The hotel had wine tasting and appetizers every night. Fantastic and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Advise you want a quiet room facing the courtroom

Good hotel, very clean and comfortable rooms and charming and helpful staff. Fisherman's wharf is a good location though a little tacky in places. The Tuscan is one of the best hotels in the area and serves the best breakfast ( don't waste time looking around!). The hotel is handy for local fish restaurants and also the big bus tour office and alcatraz. Based on San Francisco prices it is good value.
