“Good value for price and excellent location”
Reviewed 5 November 2009

Excellent location near Pier 39. Cable car is 2 blocks away. Booked a standard room and were upgraded to a deluxe starwood preferred guest room. Room was large and nicely decorated, with a sofa and complimentary coffe. Bathroom is very small, but new.
Unfortunately, all rooms are non-smoking and I had to smoke outside at chilling temperature. Do not use their garage because is very expensive, just park on the roads near the Hotel. They charge for the internet

I recently stayed in the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf with a friend of mine. As a Starwood member I expected an upgrade; however, when I asked them on the phone prior to the trip if I would get one I was told it would be difficult to do as an upgrade would put us into a King room and we needed a double room. So instead she said she would certainly give us a nice room on the top floor overlooking the courtyard so that it would be nice and quiet. As luck would have it, our flight was cancelled on the way to S.F. and we arrived a day late. I don't know if this was the reason we didn't get a "nice" top floor room overlooking the courtyard or not, but the room they gave us was on the third floor overlooking the hotel's huge air conditioning units affixed to a roof a bit lower than our floor. The hotel itself is an old hotel which has been renovated. Unfortunately, in this room, they left the old air conditioning unit and if it wasn't loud enough on its own we then had to contend with the monstrous ones on the roof outside our window. If that wasn't bad enough, the people in the room directly above ours marched back and forth across the floor from about 5:00 a.m., which was a further disturbance and the reason I had been specifically happy knowing that we were getting a top floor room.
I asked for a room change the second morning and we were then given a room on the top floor HOWEVER that room was at the corner of two of the busiest streets in the area and, in fact, the F-line street cars roared past our room until all hours of the morning (I really don't know if they EVER quit). We eventually had to leave the window completely closed and turn the air conditioner on even if the room wasn't hot -- the outcome of that being that I ended up with a sinus infection from the air conditioning.
Other than that, the hotel is very nicely decorated in colourful beach design. The lobby has a very open lounge/restaurant that is always full of people. We did not eat anything other than buffet breakfast the second morning, comped to us because I complained about the room we had been given. The breakfast was wonderful. HOWEVER, alcoholic drinks are very expensive, bottled soda is $4 and bottled water is $2.50.
Outside the front entrance they have placed about six gas barbeque heaters with chairs and couches placed around them. It is a great area for lounging with a drink and having a cigarette if you are smoker. But be advised that these areas are always busy and most times we sat there we had to ask people if they minded if we joined them. This area is always VERY noisy, however, with people coming and going all day and night in vehicles and partiers coming back from their evenings out.
Despite all of the above, the location is great. Would I recommend it? If you like to be in the thick of things and sleep like a log, you'll love it. On the other hand, if you like serenity, decorum and quiet while you sleep, you'll be very disappointed. I am the latter, and therefore cannot recommend this hotel.

This hotel is located 2 blocks from pier 39 which was a huge plus. The rooms were clean and the hotel was well maintained. The only issue I had was the pricing in the hotel. The parking was over 40 dollars a day and the food in the hotel was 3x the price down the block. In the morning they charge 4.44 for a small cup of regular coffee. We learned quick that there was a 7- eleven down the block though. This was a great location and the fire pits were a plus

We stayed at the Sheridan Fisherman's Wharf for a week this past August. The location is PERFECT if you are spending time at the wharf, which we were. It was very convienant to get anywhere, especially since it was a short walk to the trolley station at ghiridelli square.

The hotel was very clean, and had nice amenities. My favorite part of the hotel is the outdoor fire pits. We would often go out and have a glass of wine/cup of coffee and read a book. Nice relaxation after a long day of sightseeing!

The hotel has a nice cafe in the lobby, but it was extremely expensive. Breakfast on the go one morning was $22 for 2 people. We would often walk down and have breakfast at Boudini, the sourdough factory down the block... YUM!!
