This was the best hotel myself and my husband have ever stayed in, it was clean, great staff, nicely decorated and we loved sitting by the fire pits in the evening having a drink. Carn't wait to come back, would recommend to all. 5* Fantastic

The major advantage is the location - walking distance to everything including 2 cable car lines and the vintage trolley car line. Our granddaughter enjoyed the pool until getting out into the San Francisco cool evening. Don't look for a view from most rooms, it's necessary to get out of the hotel for those San Francisco sights.

Very nice hotel, close location to Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghiradelli Square and trolley/cable car lines. My kids were welcomed and treated very well by the staff. They enjoyed the swimming pool a lot!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Sheraton Fishermans Wharf Hotel

for everything else

from A TripAdvisor Member
What struck me as odd was the disparity between the overstuffed furniture/fireplace/charming staff in the lobby and the hard mattress/budget bathroom fixtures in my room. San Francisco, more than anything else, is a walking town. At the end of the day (or night) of pounding pavement, one would think a bed is a bed is a bed. Not so. Fortunately, you can't beat the location: 1 block away from Wharf and trendy North Point neighborhood (Columbus Ave/Broadway) is a $5 cab ride away.

a perfect location.

from kcribb1
I can't believe the negative comments I've read about the hotel. I booked a room through for $55.00 per night. I've stayed at the hotel on two seperate occasions, and it has been the best bargin I have ever received by far... in any country I've traveled... well there is a hotel in Prauge that may be a better bargin given it's location.The location of the hotel is a 2 -3 minute walk to the Wharf. Little Italy is seconds away. The cable car turnabout is a minutes away, and Safeway is across the street!Go Sheraton ... it's your birthday!!

t bother

from cdhtraveler
We had a "comp stay" here recently (but still had to pay the room tax, plus the hefty $30.00 per day parking fee). There are parking lots less than a block away for $15.00 per day. The room was clean but small, and no better than what you would find at Motel 6 or Super 8. The noise level (don't get a room near the motor court!) was unbearable at night, with cars arriving, valets yelling, homeless people swearing. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, rock hard. We are "locals" but it is appalling to see how much the tourists get ripped off. Better to check out some nicer hotels in Union Square or quieter area, then take cable car to the Wharf.

The worst Hotel in California and we stayed at many

from julianwalker
Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were useless and we booked a double non smoking room and ended up with a twin and it was a smokey business room. The noise the the street was terrible and tiny Windows.Overal the only thing good about it was the location. A sorry end to our otherwise perfect Holiday

t stay here again

from A TripAdvisor Member
We probably would not bother staying here again. Although the lobby looks nice, the staff was rude and the beds felt like we should be the Flintstone's sleeping on a bed of rock. View was not good. Ours overlooked a bus-stop and bus terminal with several loud homeless people hanging out. Although, it is in an easily accesible location.
It's fine to stay a night or two, but see what else is out there!

Great location with great rooms!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent the last two nights of our holiday here and were really impressed with the efficient check in service and 'feel' of the hotel.
Room was spacious and clean with great facilities - just would have been nice to have had a fridge for what we paid! We spent two other nights at Union Square at a hotel that was half the price, and although this hotel was far more superior - we did feel for the amount of time we actually spent in it - it was quite expensive and probably didn't utilise the hotel to its full potential. Howver, for luxury, a great surrounding and somewhere to get a drink at the bar when you return from your meal out - it was great. The concierge staff were also very friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a clean, friendly, comfortable hotel, somewhere to relax and within walking distance of Fishermans Wharfe.

Not drab, merely elegant

from Tarasque
My wife and I stayed here for two days in June. From a tourist point of view, it was the right place to be. Close to all the things you must see and do whilst in the city. The staff were friendly and helpful and I must agree with another reviewer, the concierge was the best we have ever come across. We wanted to visit the Japanese Garden in Golden Gate Park, and the directions given for the bus and metro were absolutely precise and easy to follow, even to the point of telling us which direction to go once outside the hotel. Full marks! The rooms were a good size, well appointed and a fridge was available if you wanted it, and it was quiet, unlike many city hotels.

reat Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very good location. 1 block from pier 39. Very clean rooms. Not a good view. None are on Fishermans wharf until you go outside. Don't rent a car. $30 bucks a day to park at the hotel. Cable car 2 blocks away.
Street car? Catch it out back. It's the best deal $1 with a transfer ticket. Safeway across the St. Add the fridge for $20, Safeway will pay off with food and alcohol. Ihop across the st. We took the Alctraz + City tour and wine tour. Both were excelent from all american tours.
Get a map of the city and you have a blast.

Sheraton - Second to none

from richiehayes2000
This hotel was fabulous. Stayed 4 nights in June whilst visiting SFO and was not dissapointed.The Sheraton is 1 minute from the Wharf and the Piers, and only 5 minutes from the trams ready to whisk you off downtown.Service was superb, and the staff were most helpful. Rooms were excellent, with good choice of TV, air con and a marvellous 'nautical' feel.Bar and meals were delightful. Have no doubts that when we return to Frisco this will be our place to stay.Marvellous, and for a reasonable price.

Fantastic time had in fishermans wharf

from sas401
We have just returned from a fantastic stay in san francisco in the sheraton fishermans wharf. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and the room was very comfortable, and very well equipped. There are no great views from the rooms but with so much to see and do and fishermans wharf on the doorstep you will not notice the lack of view. Breakfast was lovely with a great choice, service second to none, nautical theme throughout the hotel made it really feel like you were at the seaside! Would certainly stay here again when we return to SF.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Seniors Seniors travel for 50 cent on all public transport, and the ticket lasts for up to 3 hours.

Things to do with 12 year old My daughter enjoyed everything we did, which included: visit Alcatraz (may need to book ahead), shopping, etc. at Pier 39, Exploratorium (hands-on science museum), Coit Towar, cable car (a little overrated, but we did it just to do it), Lombard Street.

Transportation from SF Int'l Airport Don't take a Taxi. It will cost you upwards of $45 to Fishermans Wharf. Take the Private transport mini buses which will cost you $16 pp. The drive takes approx 25-30 minutes and because the hotels are all close together, it takes no time at all to drop of other people.
