What do you do when it's a balmy, yes balmy 11 degrees celcius? You catch a hop on hop off OPEN AIR bus, primarily to visit Sausalito. Well after crossing the city, freezing our ***** off we reached the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge where we saw the most spectacular view of the rolling fog which hide the Bridge, Alcatraz oh and of course …

We've arrived safely into San Francisco leaving the bright lights, gambling tables and Vegas shopping behind us BUT we're in mourning!The last of our 10 GIANT size peanut butter cookies, fresh from Cake Boss have just been consumed. These were no ordinary cookies.There were no hidden ingredients such as coconut, which 'mysteriously' appear in …

Parklife

... of San Francisco's peninsular. While not recommended after dark, it was a haven for us today and we spent almost the entire day there enjoying what the park has to offer. With Phoebe and Blake in tow, first stop had to be the playground, and what a playground! It was massive. Having become a bit of a playground connoisseur over the past couple of years I have to say this one has it all - climbing equipment: check; water play: check; plenty of slides: ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco

    Goods and bads - Read review

    from

    This hotel is a mixed bag of goods and bads. Depending on your needs, this hotel may be a perfect fit for you or a nightmare.

    Average Courtyard Property

    from

    I stay at Marriott properties, particularly Courtyards, over 100 nights a year and have seen just about everything at this point.

    The hotel is well located in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf. My room was really big and overlooked a courtyard with some shops and a fast food restaurant.

    The decor and condition of the bathroom were okay, not really new and fresh but not terrible either. It was below average for a Courtyard in my opinion.

    The hallways are labyrinth-like and long, so request a room near the elevator if you want to avoid a long walk.

    Nice location, but old rooms

    from

    Good location, nice staff, no rollaway charge which was nice, but hotel rooms need upgrading. Toilets were the kind of toilets in public restrooms- no fans or heat lamps in bathrooms either. It just seemed old.

    These people are nuts! This is a great hotel

    from

    I booked a room at this hotel thru the Marriott website at a rate of $129/night for three nights, December 10-12, 2004. I called the hotel from the airport for directions and got clear, concise and accurate diretions. Upon check-in, the Concierge greeted us and spoke to my wife while I checked in (it was just the two of us). Jammie, the desk clerk was as pleasant as you could ask for. We received a king/ns room on the second floor, which faced Beach overlooking the hotel sign.

    Trash Trucks or Bar Fights - take your pick - but still OK

    from

    Took out of town family for the Fisherman's Wharf experience on a Tuesday (November 30th). Booked two rooms via the internet based on location, price & my personal knowledge of the area (everything within a short walk). My room was facing Beach St. Yes there is traffic & trash trucks in the early AM, so light sleepers would be best to opt for a room facing the garage. The other members of the family had a room directly over the bar mentioned in other reviews. The bar is a "Hooters" and clientele gathered in the courtyard below their window. They witnessed two bar fights and this was only a Tuesday!

    Loved the Marriott Courtyard

    from

    We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard, Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco in late September, 2004. We had booked a room with a queen size bed, but upon check-in were given a room with a king size bed and also a sofa at no extra cost. We found the room very comfortable and clean and the staff courteous and accommodating. Location was convenient, however, we found Fisherman's Wharf to be a bit on the "seedy" side, which was in no way a reflection of the hotel itself. Only complaint was concierge's recommendation of a good seafood restaurant (Neptune's Palace). We found the quality of the food inferior and your typical tourist trap.

    D-U-M-P !!!

    from

    While the location is good for one day of tourist activities, for the price you would be better advised to stay in one of S.F.'s true luxury hotels, which also all provide convenient access to all the best sites in the city.

    Great location

    from

    Great place. Stayed there for 8 day. Superb staff and location. Did not have to rent a car since the bus stop and cable car is a block away. Having Denny's, IHOP, and Walgreen nearby is a bonus.

    Good location

    from

    The location was very near perfect - an easy walk to the cable cars and Fisherman's Wharf. The quality of the rooms are somewhat below that of typical Marriott accommodations. Our view through the window was of the adjacent parking garage. We didn't care because you don't go to San Francisco to spend your time in a hotel room. The room was clean, comfortable, and noise-free. Be aware that parking costs are fairly steep, upwards of $30/day. The Courtyard cut our cost to $10/day plus any addition fees for time spent beyond our hotel stay. The breakfast costs are also high. If you eat a light breakfast, opt-out of their breakfast plan and avoid their buffet. There are plenty of local shops to choose from. Hope this helps!

    Good location, but bad exterior

    from

    Great location, steps away from the cable car turn around, 2 blocks from the cafes, next door to the Cannery, and within a 2-3 min walk from G. Square.

    Had 2 rooms, one of which was on the street, so the tour buses and trash trucks went by starting at 6 am, the other overlooked the couryard and had loud live music that started in the afternoon and went until 10 pm, so if your a night person, request a room that overlooks the courtyard. Biggest problem was the odor outside of the entrance.

    Staff blamed it on the Homeless in the area that used a nearby alleyway as a restroom, and the runoff ran into the driveway.

    Staff was the most helpful i've ever had in SF, gave us great tips and directions, and got us a great rate for a car to the airport, instead of a shuttle
