My wife and I are teachers from the Kansas City area, and we have stayed at the Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf hotel twice in the last four years. The rooms are reasonbly priced and the cleaning staff keeps the rooms in almost perfect condition. Another plus about the Hyatt is the sportsbar 'Kuckles,' which is a great place to wind down after a day of bustling around San Francisco.
We have read many travel critics who say to stay away from the Fisherman's Wharf area because it is so touristy. However, we find the Hyatt at the Wharf to be an ideal location for enjoying almost all of the amenities that San Francisco has to offer visitors. The best seafood restaurant, Scoma's, is within walking distance, as well as the departing points for bay cruises. Additionally, the downtown area or SBC park is just a short, inexpensive taxi ride away from the Hyatt. The price, the cleanliness, and the location make the Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf an excellent choice when considering a hotel for unwinding in the immediate San Francisco area.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyatt at Fishermans Wharf Hotel

s Complaints.......I loved it!!

from Virginislandchick
I just returned from a stay at this Hyatt. I am from Evansville, IN. My sister and I stayed for six nights May 10th-16th. We thought the rooms were exceptionally clean and very roomy. We stayed in Room 244 (double/double). I definitely encourage anyone going to San Francisco to get out and see the city and eat at the local restaurants at Fisherman's Wharf..Knuckles wasn't anything to do cartwheels over.

We were pleased with the attentiveness and friendliness of the hotel staff! The gentlemen working valet were exceptionally quick and very friendly.

The only drawback to the room was the air conditioning. I wasn't comfortable sleeping with the window open and the a/c never cooled below 72 degrees. I didn't complain about the issue though so the hotel was aware...perhaps it was just our room.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf area. It is centrally located to just about everything that you would want to see.

Spent 8 nights at the hotel for our Wedding Anniversary last week. The Major positive was the location, as it's close to everything the city has to offer. We had an inside pool view that was small in size, but mostly quiet. Oddly, the hotel promotes Starbucks as their Coffee Brand, but the Complimentary Coffee provided every morning is DEFINITELY not. Althought it is served in Coffee Urns with the Starbucks Logo on the pour spigots?!?!?!

The Valet/Bellservice was very prompt and accommodating, the Front Desk and Concierege Service was average at best. Even basic directions seemed to stump the PM Desk Clerk. (however they did smile and greet guests warmly on most of our comings and goings.)

My biggest warning would be the restaurant, Knuckles. WOW what a pitiful excuse for a Hotel F&B Outlet! There was never a Host at the door to seat patrons, food servers had to notice a new table that needed service (which rarely happened) and the food was mediocore at best. We finally stopped using the facility after walking out on the 4th time we tried to have breakfast. No one will allow you to order off the menu since they pour coffee and walk away. The Buffet is your only option according to the Service Staff by their actions. As East Coaters, we were up by 7 am everyday, and they just couldn't accommodate guests/get it together that early. There was never a HOST or MANAGER in the Restaurant during any of our visits. I guess Hyatt is OK with Auto piloted restaurants. At an average 2 person breakfast at over $30, this doesn't fly with us.

If I had it to do over again, I would have paid $20 more per night and stayed at the Marriott 2 blocks down. We had a few meals there, it it seemed much more "managed" than the Hyatt.

Just thought any traveler considering a vacation on the Wharf should know... Happy Travels :-)

If it helps, we are a DINK couple in our Mid 30's...

t Stay Here

from fanelli
I stayed here in Feburary while traveling on business. It was awful. Very dirty.
Staff tried but not much you can do when the rooms are run down and dirty. In my opinion, this property gives Hyatt a bad name.

very disappointing

from kazpalms
Stayed here in August 2004. We were very disappointed. The rooms, although quite reasonably priced, were very basic and nothing special at all. It is in a good situation if you want to visit Fisherman's Wharf but that, itself, we found tacky in the extreme. We also suffered a fire alarm alert in the middle of the night complete with an evacuation of the hotel to find out that a member of staff had set if off by "cooking too much bacon"! This fact relayed to a lift full of disgruntled guests by the culprit herself in a very cheery and not at all guilty fashion! On reflection I would suggest that people pay that little bit extra and stay near Union Square. You can get to Fisherman's Wharf easily on the trams but it's not really a place you want to dwell on. Don't miss the tour of Alcatraz though - it's brilliant!

Good location and Service

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed over Xmas week. Got a good deal with AAA discount – including daily free breakfast for two and ½-off kids. For us, the hotel was in a good location. If you don’t want to be near the tourist stuff, then find another place. It was far enough from the main Wharf area ( I would not recommend staying on the wharf directly – very noisy), but close enough to walk. Also close to cable cars and local buses. Don’t plan on parking a car there though - $34/night. You really don’t need a car for anything in SF, as the public transportation is very good. There is no free internet service, which was a bit disappointing. Our room was a bit of a hike from the elevator, but it was *very* quiet – facing the inside of the hotel. The staff was very courteous and helpful.
The rooms are not huge, but OK for two people. I would stay there again.


from Layover
The restaurant, Knuckles, was great. Except for that? Ugh. Room was nothing special. Took forever to follow the maze of halls to find my room, which overlooked a gas station. Really not that great of a place.

Stay away from the street

from A TripAdvisor Member
My sister and I stayed in this hotel for two nights. Unfortunately is was during a protest outside the Holiday Inn across the road - but the 6am til 11pm mega phone brigade could be heard loud and clear from our street facing room 7 stories up. However, the hotel is within walking distance of Pier 39, Ghiradelli Centre and the Cannery but we always returned to the hotel before dark because the streets were full of unsavory characters. THe room was lovely, what we expected for the Hyatt hotel and Hyatt price tag.

Not worth the price...

from gohcp
I selected this hotel for the big name Hyatt but I am very disappointed with the 3 days stay. The room is small and hard to move about, even for just two persons. We were at first given a room so far away from the lift, making many turns like a maze. Only after our humble request, we then given a room just next to the lift, it was available in the first place.

The bath room lack of many standart stuff, so you must bring along with your shower cap. I wish for a bigger room and free use of internet, you have to pay for $10 per day for wifi usage (still with some problem sending email).

I will personally feels that this is not a good place to stay, price is higher for this big name but you are getting much different.

So So

from A TripAdvisor Member
My new hubby and I stayed here on our Honeymoon. The staff was informed ahead of time that we were celebrating this special occasion in their hotel, yet they gave us a room with 2 double beds instead of the requested King. They didn't make much of an effort to correct the problem; said they 'might' be able to move us to another room the next day. The rooms were in dire need of an overhaul; not what we expected from a Hyatt. But the Concierge was very helpful and the location was convenient to the Fisherman's Wharf area.

Great location, nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for four nights during our honeymoon. The people at the front desk were so nice to us, and congratulated us numerous times on getting married! The room was very nice. It was on the smaller side, but we spent most of our day seeing the city so it didn't bother us. The room was kept clean, the bed was comfortable, and the hotel was quiet.

The front desk staff were great. They gave us tips on what to see and do.

We got a great price on this hotel through priceline ($60/night) and we were treated just like everyone else. I was very pleased and would stay here again. You're close enough to the Wharf to see everything, but it's easy to get to anywhere in the city from the Hyatt's location.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Had a great dinner at Fino Fino is a great restaurant at a reasonable price - located on Cosmo Alley.

Alcatraz Island The boat trip to Alcatraz Island was scenic but was disappointed with the condition of buildings on Alcatraz Island. Very crowded on Alcatraz even during off season.

Cable Cars - don't wait at the stops If you want to ride the cable car from end to end, you usually have to wait in a sizeable queue. If you are a little smarter about it, you can go one or two stops up the line and hop on instead of waiting for the long lines. Also, there are several cable car lines if you are looking just to have an experience, avoid some of the more popular cable car lines and look for ones that might not hit the beaten paths.
