TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf
The desk staff was pleasant and quickly checked us into our room while giving us an upgrade to a Jr Suite for one night. We found the room to be nice however the room had a slight septic smell. This room is a franchise hotel, and needs to be updated in its overall appearance. The rooms were very clean, but it appears the money has not been put into the hotel over the years to keep it on par with its competition.

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf
My 84 year old mother and I spent a lovely weekend in San Francisco reliving her heydays during WWII. (saw where she met my dad, the church where they were married, etc.) Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed the attentive staff and the room. We ordered room service after a particulary exhausting day, and the food was reasonably priced, arrived hot, and positively delicious. Also, the front desk folks were so gracious and cheerful. The only surprise was the cost of parking there - $38 per night was a bit steep, but it's a premium area, and that's what you get. I recommend breakfast at Pergamino Coffee & Tea at 1323 Columbus Ave - an easy walk from the Hotel. One last note - the beds are the MOST comfortable I've ever slept in.
Good job Marriott
Just got back from Frisco, we stood at the Marriott Fishermans Wharf. Service was great, staff was friendly and helpful. I would definately recommend you stay here. The Hotel was lotated one block from all the shops and restaurants.
Great Location and Staff
The Marriott Fishermans Wharf was the first stop on a 2-week, 6-hotel vacation / journey beginning in late June 2004. This was our first visit to San Francisco, and we stayed at the Marriott for 3 nights. I heartily recommend the hotel. We were able to walk to Fishermans Wharf and other nearby attractions, and had easy access to public transportation (cable cars, street cars and buses) which we used to get all over the city. The public areas of the hotel were clean and modern and felt very safe. We had one breakfast at the hotel buffet and that was fine. The lounge was a nice place to relax and watch sports in the evening. The concierge was helpful and arranged limo transportation from the airport and recommended 2 good nearby restaurants. In fact, all of the staff we encountered (front desk, housekeeping, wait staff, bell staff, etc.) were friendly and helpful. The only opportunity for improvement is in the room itself; our room size was average at best, it had a heating/air conditioning unit cover that was leaned against the wall (rather than attached to it), and the bathroom door was quite worn. But none of these very minor issues would prevent me from staying here again. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Next Stop: Embassy Suites in Seaside, CA.
We stayed here based on the reviews and were surprised to see how nice this hotel was. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Whenever we tried to give a tip, they acted surprised as if they weren't expecting it. The room was small but very clean and nice. The location was great, close to everything. The staff was also friendly to kids and gave ours toys at check in and check out. I have to say I didn't like the $38/day valet parking but considering the deal I got with an airfare/hotel but separate car price, I still saved money compared to pricing all separately and didn't have to battle parking in SF!
Don't take your car!
Clean and tidy. No complimentary breakfast and we were charged $38 each day to have our car.
We just got back from a 5 night stay at this really nice hotel. The location is the best, close to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square and just a couple blocks from the two main cable car lines. The staff were above average in terms of helpfulness and courtesy. I would not hesitate to stay here on my next visit to San Francisco,
Wonderful Stay at the Marriot Fisherman Wharf
My husband and I were staying at the Marriot Fisherman's Wharf from 27 Feb to 3 March 2004. We were very pleased with our stay as the hotel is within walking distance to Fisherman Wharf, visits to China Town, Union Square and Golden Gate Bridge is very easy as the bus stop is located at the corner of the hotel. Very reliable and friendly bus drivers as well. The conciege of the hotel was wonderful, very detailed and provided good advice on places to visit. The rooms are very clean and bright, bed is very comfortable with so many pillows. The staff are extremely helpful as well. Overall we had a good time and will definitely stay in this hotel again.
Some good, some bad
For location, convenience and Marriott service, I'd stay here. We were here for part of our honeymoon and were on Marriott points. Because of that we got free the breakfast buffet they serve during the week. The food was good and the staff very attentive. The wharf, cable cars, shopping etc. are all within walking distance, so it's a great location. The rooms are small and our window wistled loudly. They were working on the roof one day for most of the day. It sounded like someone was going to come crashing through. Not very romantic, but made for a few good laughs. I'd recommend it for it's location, but not if you're looking for luxuriously large rooms.
This was a wonderful hotel, just a block or two from Fisherman's Wharf.
The lobby and bar area were lovely, the staff friendly and accommodating. The conceierge was fantastic, with great tips on transportation and where to eat. The beds and pillows were the most comfortable I have ever slept on in a hotel anywhere. The food in the lounge and restuarant was a little pricey, but that isn't unexpected.
The breakfast buffet was amazing, and only $6.95 for children 18 and under. The business centre wasn't busy in the evening, and my teens were able to check their email at no cost. I was also able to go online in the business center to get driving directions when our plans changed. I would heartily recommend this hotel to business travellers and families, and would definitely stay there again if I ever get back to San Francisco.
Jsut returned from San Francisco. Our stay at the Marriott on Fisherman's Wharf was great. From the clean room to friendly concierges, our every request was met quickly and with a smile. I would stay there again. We did not eat at the hotel as some local diners were within walking distance. We had a great internet rate and were treated like a King and Queen.

... the right questions. Anyway, we got off at the Italian quarter at Stockton and Columbus. Minka had artisan cheeses, I had a pancake stack. We sat there in the sunshine for a couple of hours reminiscing about the good and bad days in Colwyn Bay. Minka wanted to show me Chinatown. It was heaving - and a typical Chinatown. Bustling with traders and their customers. On we went until we reached the junction of Stockton and Sutter. This is where it turned weird. We ...
... splitting Half Dome And North Dome (see pics). We were treated to a walk deep into the Sequoia Mangroves. These trees are the biggest I have EVER seen or even imagined. There was one giant which had fallen and hollowed, and a couple of the crew knelt through the middle (?? That should give you a good idea). A fully grown Sequoia would have started its growth journey just before 70 AD (around about the time the Colosseum was built), and they are still standing today, over ...
... terminal, and a nice little patch of grass to chill, read a book or have a lay in the sun. What didn't help however, was the bus being an extra 20 minutes late.
Eventually the bus came, we got on board and headed back to the train station. The traffic however was insane, and we almost didn't make our train. The bus driver's phone was also flat, so he couldn't even phone ahead to get the train held for us. This was extremely annoying to the brother and sister who were ...
... drinks. I couldn't work out why the specials weren't coming up only to realise I had to join the 'Safeway club'. I joined, handed them my receipts & they handed $21 back to me??! Seriously - better than the 'Everyday rewards' we get at home! Once we dropped off our latest booty we took a walk to the Golden Gate Bridge. Seriously that thing is a mirage - it gets bigger as you walk towards it but it doesn't seem to get any ...
... Tom and Sam and do some exploring without the bikes. It felt so good to not have to cycle! Once reunited with Tom and Sam, we checked out the falls which from the US side you can't really see much. We decided to take the Maid of the Mist boat ride. It was really fun and good to see them up close! George and I decided to check our the Canada side which is just a short walk across the bridge. From the bridge we saw ...
