Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf hotel description>>
Great Area-Even Better Hotel
My family and I stayed 7 nights in this wonderful hotel. The staff was very friendly and helped us navigate our way through the city and all of the points of interest. The housekeeping department was very efficent and nice. The reception area was nicely appointed and the staff very quick and helpful. We did enjoy the sports bar as well. When you travel with children, you often do not use the hotel restaurant because of prices and your kids making a mess and being loud. However, this was the perfect place. The kids had choices like chicken nuggests or mac and cheese, while my wife and I could have a steak or a nice salad. Overall, a great hotel, reasonably priced (other Hyatts in SF were much more expensive) and a great time! I would definitely go back.
FW Hyatt OK!
I agree w/ previous comments about Fisher. Wharf being the tackiest tourist trap. This Hyatt is just a couple of blocks away from Pier 39 (an absolute zoo of people) and Ghirardelli Plaza (wait in long lines to pay big bucks to buy anything from its famous store) along Hotel row next a Marriott and across from a huge Holiday Inn. Don't come in a car (parking is $32/ night) best to use a Muni Pass (buses/trolleys run every 5-10 minutes even on X-mas Day) or a Airport Shuttle Service ($13PP). The Day Concierge was excellent for giving bus directions to all locations. Several of the the front desk staff was UNhelpful and downright Argumentative when asked for a late checkout even though I brought it up on our first of four nights stay because of a late flight out. The lobby has a great lower level w/ a huge fountain, huge crackling fireplace and lots of places to sit and stretch your legs after walking all day. On the other side of the lobby is "Knucles" their restaurant, good sandwiches, nice decor for a sports bar, service was really slow (but it was X-mas night and the place was packed, probably because it was one of the few places open for dinner). In their inner courtyard (with people watching from their windows) they have a nice rectangular but shallow pool and a decent spa. Never had towels though so we kept having to call and have someone come within 5-10 minutes w/ a stack. The room was good, cozy and comfortable, not exactly Hyatt standards but this location is for tired tourists who don't spend too much time at the hotel. There is another tall Hyatt on the Embarcadero/ Financial district side which is probably up to H standards further away from the touristy side. The problem w/ the financial district it is closer to Civic Center/ Union Plaza, but that is where all the homeless the winos and the druggies congregate in large #'s, a pretty sad site which I remember from previous trips. The city isn't making any real effort to get them off the streets but this is liberal SF so they probably think it adds to the ambiance!
OK hotel in a tacky, touristy location
Either you love Fisherman's Wharf or you hate it. I'm in the latter camp: I find it hideous, overpriced, tacky -- the armpit of San Francisco. I had to stay here at the Hyatt on business, and it's not a horrible hotel, but nothing special either. The staff at reception seem a bit clueless and not terribly courteous. Bell staff and housekeeping staff, however, were both efficient and pleasant. The hotel has only one dining option, a sports bar that's unremarkable and overpriced, but probably no worse than most dining options in the immediate neighborhood.
