“Great staff recommendations- great location”
Reviewed 27 July 2007

This location has some of the best staff I have dealt with in a while. The front desk and concierge were VERY helpful in providing recommendations for nice dinners, quick bites, tours to take, and places to walk to.
The hotel room was a bit more "average" than I expected, but it was still fairly large and clean.
The bar area and the gift shop downstairs are both very nice. As you enter the lobby, you are overwhelmed with a wonderful smell of the huge fresh flower bouquet that adorns the marble table in the lobby.
The hotel is within a shirt walking distance of several great restaurants, the Pier, and Ghiradelli square. Excellent location!
And, of course, the Marriott beds always make for a wonderful night sleep.

Parking was EXPENSIVE, but I guess that can be expected for parking in a downtown city where public transportation is the best way to get around. But, the valet guys were great. Every time I wanted to leave and drive somewhere, they had my car waiting for me before I even made it down the elevator. And, they are incredibly professional and polite.

All in all, we had a great stay at this hotel!

  • Liked — The location was incredible! So close to all the great things to do.
  • Disliked — The parking was expensive at the hotel, and really added up after a 4 day stay.

The Marriott is located close to the heart of Fisherman's Wharf but is far enough away to allow some tranquility. There are numerous good restaurants close by and the public bus is right by the hotel.

The rooms are a good size, in-room Starbucks, and appear to be reasonably priced by San Francisco's lofty standards.

The location of this property couldn't be better for sightseeing around the wharf, Pier 39 and the Alcatraz Tour. The hotel is small and older but well maintained. Our room was clean and check-in was easy. The hotel advertised their new luxurious beds but they were a disappointment--much too soft for a good night's sleep. The only thing that would keep me from staying here again is the parking fee--a whopping $40 per day! The worst part is that there is a public parking lot one block north and two blocks east that only charges $6.00/ day. I really hate it when I feel that I have been taken advantage of like that. Shame on you, Marriott!

I would have rated this hotel perfect except for one small detail -
yes, they do have very comfortable pillow top beds but the hotel is using standard size sheets which are not large enough to accomodate the extra thickness of the pillow top mattress.
The result is a sheet which keeps flipping off of the mattress corners, making for a very annoying nights sleep.
On the positive side, the hotel was very nice with very helpful personnel at the front desk, clean and quiet rooms, and very close to all of the major attractions. If Marriott can correct this issue, this could be one of the best hotels in the Wharf area.

  • Liked — Quiet rooms despite buzy area
  • Disliked — sheets on beds were not the proper size for the pillowtop mattress

The Marriott Fisherman's Wharf has an excellent staff, great location and best of all - the most comfortable beds ever. My husband, 2 daugthers and I absolutely loved this place. We stayed June 8th and 9th. I would highly recommend this hotel when visiting San Francisco.

We stayed at the Fishermans Wharf Marriott April 24-29, 2007.
To save on expenses four of us stayed in one room. The beds
were some of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The concierge staff really helped us plan our stay, and gave us great advice on where to eat and some very fun nightlife. Kudos to all of the staff for their friendly, knowledgable advice. My only complaint was that on the last day I became quite sick. I stayed in while my friends did a Napa Valley tour. I wanted to order room service and found out that you may only order lunch between 12:00- 1:00. Now when I see a room service menu that boasts "all day" it should mean "all day'. Other than this we all give this property a high rating. We would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel over the Memorial Day weekend, 4 days/3 nights, May 25-28, 2007. This hotel was in a good location with the Fisherman's Wharf attractions within walking distance as well as numerous other San Francisco attractions. All of the hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful but the cleanlinest of the hotel room needed improvement. Our room was nice but we noticed dirt on a wall and a stain on the chair. The shower curtain also had a stain. In the restaurant we noticed some dust along a shelf. I think the cleaning staff needs to be better trained. There's no pool in the hotel but we didn't miss it because of all the sightseeing we did around town and the cool temperatures in San Francisco. There was a small fitness center on-site which came in handy. I would say this was a decent 3 star hotel.
