Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel Choices

San Francisco is known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The climate, history and architecture, as well as San Francisco Bay and the great number of things to do and see, make this city the fabulous place that it is. Many sections of the city are unique, but surely the Fisherman’s Wharf area is the city’s heart. Both locals and tourists flock to this area to enjoy its many attractions and to eat in the seafood and other restaurants located there. Many of the attractions involve tour boats. One of the favorites of these is the tour of the island prison, Alcatraz.

The name, Fisherman’s Wharf, is properly spelled with an apostrophe before the “s” in the first word. Some people spell the phrase, Fishermans Wharf, without the apostrophe. This article will use both spellings. However you choose to spell it, there is a huge variety of hotels with many different levels of service and amenities.

The top rated hotels in this section of the city include:

1. The 4½-star Fairmont Heritage Place Hotel: This hotel is ideally located on the waterfront and on Ghirardelli Square. This European-inspired facility has all suites, a 10,000 square foot, full service spa, a private chef available and many other amenities.

2. The 4-star Argonaut Hotel: Located in the heart of Fishermans Wharf, this hotel has 252 suites and rooms. In-room massages and spa services are offered along with a fitness center and the Blue Mermaid Chowder House and Bar. A vibrant waterfront marketplace is across the alley from the hotel.

3. The 4-star Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel: This hotel is near many of San Francisco’s most popular attractions and just two blocks from the waterfront. There are 313 suites and rooms, all of which were redecorated in 2007. It has a pool, fitness center and all the amenities usually associated with a first class hotel.

4. The 4-star Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel: The hotel features 531 modern, bright guest rooms, which were recently remodeled as part of a $33 million renovation. Amenities include indoor fire pits located in a section of the lobby, sweet-sleeper beds, WiFi access and 9000 square feet of space for meetings.

Parking tends to be expensive in this very congested area. For those who desire free parking and lower rates for rooms, there is The Wharf Inn. It is well-located near the heart of the target area and has been named the “Best Value in Fishermans Wharf” for the last five years in Frommer’s San Francisco Guide.

Reservations can be made by calling the hotel of your choice directly or the company number for booking rooms, on the Internet or by booking on a blind website such as Hotwire or Priceline.
