      Historical Traveler Reviews Harbor Court Hotel - A Kimpton Hotel San Francisco

      Fantastic Waterfront Views and High Style in SF


      Even though I life in SF, I've found the Harbor Court Hotel to be a great location for a "getting away from it all" stay close to home. One of many highlights include waterfront view rooms with an incredible view of the Bay Bridge. The hotel has an extremely convenient location along the "Embarcadero" on a street with several terrific restaurants.

      The adjoining Japanese restaurant, Ozumo, is one of my favorite spots for sushi in the city. A great, friendly staff and very chic decor make the Harbor the place to stay when you want to feel like a VIP in the big city. Highly recommended for out-of-towners and locals alike!

      Best Place in SF


      Loved this hotel!!! The accomodations are beautiful but the location is to die for - so much more sophisitication than the usual tourist traps.

      Upscale environment and the wine hour had us starting the evening off right. Will return again and again.

      Great experience at the Harbor Court


      Impressed a friend from Scotland with this choice. The Harbor Court delivers way more than you expect for the price. Blends fun and chic with a soothing elegance in a way you don't find at hotels like the W.

      Make sure you take the time to enjoy the complimentary wine service from the lobby with amazing views of the Bay on good days and a cozy fireplace for the foggy ones.

      Lovin the Harbor Court Hotel


      We had a great time at the Harbor Court. The lobby is beautiful and welcoming and the staff were as helpful as they could be. Great location, view, transportation, near the ball park too. Don't miss the new farmers market across the street - fabulous! Rooms are small but well organized, attractive and cozy. The beds are oh so comfy! Very good restaurants nearby and the free use of the YMCA right in the hotel. Loved it!

      Squished in San Francisco


      The beautiful decor of the Harbor Court was cold comfort for the miniscule room that we were given. So small that I didn't think anyone would believe it. So I decided to measure the footspace around our queen-sized bed: 10" on one side, 14" on the other, and 36" at the foot of the bed. Adding insult to injury, the room was very dark--with windows facing a blank wall. From the floorplan of the hotel, I figure about one quarter of the rooms actually have a view of the San Francisco Bay. My husband and I were at the Harbor Court because of a business conference, and we were able to hear how other conference participants felt about their experience at the Harbor Court Hotel.

      What we heard was that people were not happy; they felt like extra charges were around every corner--starting with the $32/day for parking. Things like having to carry your luggage up stairs to get to the elevator also made a dent in people's satisfaction. Given its great location and lovely decor and lobby, it's a shame that the Harbor Court comes up short on so many other accounts. Be sure that you don't end up in a dwarf-sized room like we did!

      Dont forget to add $32 to park, $28 room tax etc.


      This hotel was not worth $270 a night. Too small, to dirty, too rude.

      Was not real happy with San Francisco as a whole. The whole city could use a good power washing. Sorry.

      Small but sweet


      We booked this hotel on Priceline and got a great rate. The location was excellent, the decor was beautiful and unique, the staff were friendly, and there was a free wine reception every day from 5-6. The only problem was that our room was TINY. And I mean miniscule. If you are paying regular price, make sure you request a "large" room, because ours was astonishingly small -- it fit a queen bed with about 2.5 feet around it.

      We had a wonderful honeymoon!


      It was our honeymoon. We stayed at the hotel from 03.14.03 till 03.21.03. The room was not big, but its decoration and the bathroom were beautiful. Everything was pleasant. I especially liked the wonderful foyer. It had nice, comfortable couches and a beautiful fireplace. We took many pictures there. They offered free wine from 5.00 to 6.00 p.m. every night. In the morning they offered free tea and coffee. Every day there were fresh, sweet apples on a table in the lobby. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. It is in a very good location. It was a short walk to the metro, the cable cars, the trolleybuses and the buses. There is also a beautiful view of the Bay Bridge from outside the hotel. It is also not in a dangerous area, if you return late. We again want to thank the Harbor Court Hotel for a nice, pleasant time during our honeymoon.

      Good for Two


      The Harbor Court is fine if its just you, or a couple at most since the rooms are really small. I did love the toiletries --AVEDA, and the continuous free starbucks coffee and an offer to join the management for some wine and cookies in the late afternoon. The decors remind me of some episodes of Trading Spaces.

      Excellent Value


      Stayed here for 4 nights in July-02. A bit out of the way, but well worth it (buses and trolleys are everywhere so it didn't matter in the end). We had an inside room with no view, but it was quiet. Rooms are small but not stifling. Best hotel bed I've ever slept in. Free access to the Y next door. Highly recommend this hotel.

      ... booked out and has been all season. You'd have little chance if you just turned up.

      On arrival we were welcomed by a very lively young lady who also conducted an "Out & About" tour which we decided to wait 30 minutes for, and it was worth the wait as she gave us some interesting information. After that we then proceeded to the audio cell tour and this was also excellent. The whole organisation on Alcatraz is very good. Ended ...

      This week is a CO visit for NN, so it seems appropriate that this episode has a spiritual theme. Thus far we have not been able to attend any meetings, as that will happen for the first time tomorrow (Tuesday) night at the West Manhattan cong. (Wait for the NY episode as this is still SFO) This draft is being done on the plane to NY, the flight monitor telling me that we are 2 h 48 mins from JFK or 1965 km to go. (Sunday) Anyway back ...
