“Nice hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Staff was very nice and checkin/checkout was quick, even though I arrived in well after 1AM due to a delayed flight. The hotel is right near the ferry building and convenient to transit stops. Views of the bay bridge are lovely and the neighborhood feels safe even after dark (and I am a solo female traveler).

randomly selected the hotel based on it's proximity to the waterfront. The hotel is a good half hour walk to the main pier on the waterfront but the walk is great for people watching! Right across the road (water side) is a great light sculpture where people gather at night to have a drink or smoke (weed). The vibe is very chill and you don't need to feel unsafe as everyone seemed happy.

The hotel itself had one of the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in (was not a big deal if you don't care about the size of the room) The hotel is pet friendly and if you so want you can have a goldfish delivered to your room for company.

I will go back!

Delightful service at Harbor Court. The staff was friendly and efficient, the location is first rate. It was my daughter's first trip to San Francisco so the staff surprised her with a treat by leaving a pint of sea salt caramel gelato in our mini fridge. Such a nice touch. We had a room without a view, but did not have the same issues with sound that other reviewers experienced. We slept soundly on a very comfortable bed. Our only complaint was that the bathroom smelled heavily of urine. Had we been staying more than one night, I would have asked for another room.

A great Hotel in many ways - the usual great and friendly Kimpton experience. However, be warned that the internal rooms are noisy as they overlook an ugly internal courtyard and there is a constant drone of plant and equipment noise. I didn't care about the view (I was there on business) but did care about the noise which prevented me from sleeping well. The staff did move me to try and solve but it didn't help and even they noted that all of the internal rooms would have the noise. I understand the bay side rooms are quiet. So if sleep is important to you and/or earplugs are not effective then suggest you get a bay side room for the extra money. I'm posting this review in the interests of helping - as I noted that all the rave reviews were primarily for the bay side rooms!

Room Tip: choose a bayside room for a quiet room

We have visited this hotel many times over and have reviewed it positively 3 previous times. It always exceeds our highest expectations! When we walked in the front door, the man at the front desk, Chris, greeted us by name. Now that makes you feel welcome! All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful room with a queen bed and a gorgeous view of the Bay Bridge. It feels like you are sleeping on a cloud in the comfy bed. Everything is exceptionally clean and quiet, which is very important to us. The Wine Hour is delightful, and we met travelers from Florida while enjoying our yummy sangria. Many owners with their dogs joined us in the lobby. We ride the BART from the airport and walk to Harbor Court Hotel. Then we can walk to many places such as Fisherman's Wharf and the Financial District. This time we took a pedicab from Fisherman's Wharf to the hotel, which was a treat. Saturday morning we enjoyed the Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building, always a must see. We caught a Giants game at AT&T Park, a short walk away. The location of Harbor Court Hotel along with the comfort and amenities it provides makes it our "must stay" hotel in San Fran every time! We'll be back!

This was our first time at the Harbor Court, and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are small, but the view of Bay Bridge more than made up for it. I loved the great service from the staff and the selection of drinks they offered at their free evening wine hour. The location on the Embarcadero is great for quick access to the Ferry Building and the Exploratorium.

Location is good , easy to get to from airport and BART station at Embarcadero so don't think about getting a cab from the airport .
Hotel was comfortable and transport links to all the main areas are very close. Our room was a little small but it was OK for our needs and with added complimentary breakfast we could get started early each day with room service.
The area is quiet in the evening and a nice walk along the bay front to Fishermans walk

Room Tip: Rooms with a view are extra
