This residence is located right above Ghirardelli Square. Alcatraz is right across the bay and the views from the balcony were fantastic! Everything you could need or want is provided...including a washer and dryer in one of the closets. Every evening music would drift up from the Square...very good artists and lovely sounds. A fireplace adds a nice touch, and there are two TV's with DirecTV. The valet service will take good care of your car, and this is great because parking in SF is at a premium. The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. One could not ask for anything more.
My courtyard view room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel is just a few blocks away from the wharf area and close to the Masons-Powell cable car turn-around. There's also a couple of breakfast spots nearby, if you rather not eat in the hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful. If you need to rent a car for the day, check with the concierge. The hotel had a deal with Enterprise car rental, so we were able to reserve the car at the hotel, go out to have breakfast, then walk a few more blocks and get our rental car. This was my 1st trip to San Francisco and I wouldn't hesitate staying here again!
Sea lions bask in the sun by Pier 39's shops at Fisherman's Wharf. Nearby, Ghirardelli Square's chocolate factory gives a taste of the sweet life. At Pier 33, boats depart for Alcatraz. The city and Golden Gate Bridge gleam atop Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. Literature thrives at the famed City Lights book store in North Beach. Washington Square Park is the heart of this historic Italian enclave.
