1. Horribly rude and inhospitable staff.... some of the worst I have ever seen in all my years of travel. Were these people trained at American Airlines or what???

2. They dont tell you that the only rooms with the view in the photos are the suites. ALL THE OTHER ROOMS ARE LOOKIKNG OUT ON THE ADJACENT BUILDING INDUSTRIAL AIR CONDITIONER GENERATRORS and the noise is horrible.

3. If I had not pre-paid for this stay I would have moved over to the HOTEL VITALE a block away which is new, much more chic , has better views AND is priced the same.
Harbour Court - Way overpriced!

My room rate was $189 and I stayed 3 nights in February 2005.

The room was so small that is was barely the size of the bed. It was a very, very tight fit even for one person--no window, no desk, no chairs, no closet. Two people would never ever fit comfortably.

The room was so musty that each room has an electronic room air freshner.

The bed mattres was of cheap hotel quality.

The bathroom was above average and very nice. This was the only nice feature.

For $10 more, stay at the Nikko.

The bathroom was very clean.
Lovely decor and Quiet

Although the room was on the small side, it was beautifully decorated and the bed was made up of fresh white linens (like the Heavenly Bed at the Westin). Another pleasant surprise was how quiet it was and how outstanding the hotel staff were. There is also a fantastic/hip Japanese restaurant next door. Great boutique hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Harbour Court Hotel

Great view, small room

from sunshine95030
I just returned from a weekend stay at the Harbor Court and could go on and on about the location and view! The room was very small with 2 single beds (!) but the view of the Bay Bridge and Treasure Island was excellent. We walked to SBC Park for a Giants game-20 min. leisurely walk, and visited the Ferry Bldg for Farmer's market and clam chowder at the seafood restaurant there with a beautiful view of the bay bridge and wonderful man playing the clarinet outside. I highly recommend the Harbor Court Hotel unless you have several people to fit in a room. The wine/beer hour and cookies and milk in the evening was a very nice touch.

Good place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a good place to stay at the beginning a trip to San Francisco as it is quiet enough to catch up on sleep and gives you a good opportunity to get your bearings. Our room, although not massive, was in very good condition and was kept spotless. It was good value for money and we would certainly recommend it.

hotel is OK, some rooms are horror!!!

from albrecht30
Stayed in the Habor Court for 4 nights. Posititiv is the location of the hotel, gratis internet access in the lobby, gratis!!! wine/beer taste hours and clean rooms.
Negativ,I booked via hotwire against a rate of USD80, we stayed the first three nigts in a extremely small "room" which is unacceptabel for everybody(especially with 2 persons, it is about 6sqm..no joke!!!!) and a shame that they putting people in such a dog corner( a real horror). We complaind and after 3 nights we're moved to another room which was small but ay least you could call it a room, means watch out for rooms ending on 01 like 501, 401 etc. Conclusion: hotel is good, but with offering some unacceptabel rooms we would never stay in this hotel again, risk would be to high to get again such "room", sorry!!

view is great, staff are wonderful

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent 9 nights. The staff are so friendly. Starting the first day, the staff at the front desk greeted me by name. There is complimentary coffee and tea in the morning, a wine tasting between 5-6 pm, and cookies and milk later in the evening.
All of the staff are great, the front desk, the housekeepers, etc.

The rooms are very small, bordering on tiny, but nicely decorated. I went through Priceline, so my initial room didn't have a view. For an additional cost, I was able to upgrade to a room with a view of the Bay Bridge. It was well worth it. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

from PabloPicaso
got a room there via priceline for 70/nt. Got a small room but good enough for the price. Room was very nicely set up. No noise at all. Great location. almost right under the bay bridge. Very friendly staff. took care of all my needs and properly instructed on what to do and where to go. priceline customers gotta pay 10bucks extra per day to use YMCA but I just did push ups in the room. wine houre every eve. was great.

Good hotel, good location.

from BringHomeTroops
I stayed here at the end of March for the weekend. I got a great rate of $60/night on Priceline. For the price it was excellent. The location was perfect for me. It’s only a few blocks from Bart so I took Bart to the hotel from the airport. It’s right next to the gorgeous Ferry Building that has an awesome farmer’s market on weekends. Don’t miss it. It is walking distance to Union Square and I even walked to Fisherman’s Warf and the Haight from there (well I like walking).

The room was pretty small, but it was fine for one person. Two people with two large suit cases would have been a little cramped. I didn’t have much of a view because I had a cheap Priceline room, but I didn’t care because I was gone all day long. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was nice. Had to wait almost 2 hours for my room to be ready but I came early and it was ready by their official check-in time. However, they didn’t seem to do much to hurry and get it made up for me since I was waiting. This was a little annoying but , oh well. I asked the front desk people if I had the smallest room and they said no, they had smaller ones. Room was relatively clean and when I asked for more towels, service was prompt. Didn’t use the YMCA, but heard it was really nice.

Overall, a nice hotel with small rooms. I would stay there again especially at $60/night!

Harbor Court is Great!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a great hotel. The staff is very helpful, the lobby is unique, the room was very quiet and comfortable, it is pet friendly, the wine-tasting is a nice touch. It is convenient to cable cars, buses, and the BART. We had a great week here.

Loved the Harbor Court

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here Sept 2003 for a long weekend. Got great rate thru Priceline. Lobby was very nice. Lobby & room looked like it was taken from an episode of Trading Spaces. Enjoyed wine hour, which actually turned into wine hours since we asked the staff what they were going to do with the opened wine. they said we could have it, otherwise they were going to dump it. Great location. Walking distance to many great restaurants. Easy walk to the Gordon Bierch brewery.

Nice hotel, good value

from cceiii
I stayed at the Harbor Court for two nights last month and it was very comfortable. The lobby is nicely decorated and the staff could not be more helpful from the moment you walk in the door. Other reviewers have noted, and it's true, that the rooms are on the small side. However, there is plenty of room for one or two people and, if you are lucky enough to have a Bay view room, the views are spectacular. The Harbor Court is a good value compared to many other hotels in San Francisco and does offer free wine/beer tastings in the lobby every evening. It's not the most luxurious hotel in SF, but for what I paid I would stay there again.

perfect place for us!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Harbor Court staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were gorgeous and our view of the bay, terrific. I would recommend the Harbor Court to any one who is going to San Francisco and wants to be treated like royalty

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Farmer's Market There is a great Farmer's Market right on Embarcadero every Saturday morning. Go there for fresh fruits & veggies, along with other goodies. Totally within walking distance of the hotel.

Traveling to SF If you live in the surrounding area such as Sacramento, Davis, etc - take Amtrak into SF. The train is very comfortable, clean and usually on time on the weekends. It drops you in Emeryville where a very nice Amtrak bus takes you right into the city and stops at 5 or 6 locations throughout the city. It is so relaxing and very affordable.
