    Chaos at the building site

    The Radisson is undergoing major refurbishment work and the main hotel entrance and lobby is no more than a pile of rubble. A temporary (tiny) lobby has been created, which was nowhere big enough to cater for mass arrivals and departures.

    Although I'm on a budget and had gone for a basic room, I think I've been upgraded because it's a bigger and better room than I was expecting. All the furniture looks and feels new, so perhaps I have one of the newly-refurbished rooms.

    I'd have given it a four star rating because the staff became much more friendly and helpful when they weren't under so much pressure and I've got a decent room. However, the facilities are very poor because of the building work and that knocks them down a star

    Nice tourist hotel

    A good example of a good tourist hotel. The room was pleasantly large though a little noisy first thing in the morning. The breakfast diner attached serves basic good quality food at sensible prices. You are right on the Quay and can walk to almost everything you want in food and drink within 10 minutes.

    Staff are pleasant and speedily efficient and the concierge fixed up with a good wine tour. Not the prettiest hotel in the world in a slightly noisy location, but it suited us fine.

    Perfekt beliggenhed

    Det er meget muligt at man kan finde hoteller med bedre standarder i SF, men der er ikke mange om nogen der slår Radissons beliggenhed - helt nede ved havnen med udsigt over SF Bay og 200 m til PIER 39. Nu er det ikke sådan, wwat kvaliteten på hotellet fejlede noget og vi var så heldig at bo i den del der virkede til at være renoveret for ganske nyelig. Morgenmad fandtes dog ikke direkte på hotellet,da de ikke havde nogen restaurant, men ved deres bagudgang lå en traditionel amerikansk diner, med jukeboks
    ved bordene, hvilket var ganske udemærket underholdning for børnene

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco

    Great location.


    Only a few minutes walk to all the attractions. Large clean and well maintained rooms. Night staff friendly and helpful.

    Great Location


    After first thinking we would get a room downtown, sure glad I came to my senses and stayed at the Raddison. First time to San Francisco so it's a guessing game. Have come to find out those reports of the seedy area downtown are "oh so true". Just a little scary. Anyhow the Raddison met most of are needs; large screen tv, pay per view movies, helpful bell boy, decent staff, clean room, safe location. There are a few cons such as the room is too small but what can you do? Yes i would have liked to stay in a more luxurouis place, but at the same time didn't want to dig that deep in the pockets for a place we wouldn't end up spending much time at. At any rate, this hotel has a excellent location right by the Wharf. Pier 39, 7-11, Krispy Creme, Borders, Safeway all in the neighborhood of this hotel. Wish we got a better price but had the free parking included. Wasn't a bad price by San francisco standards. But next time i will get a cheaper rate. So stay here and enjoy the Wharf and all it has to offer and meet the guys that crash in the alley way by the 7/11 most nights.

    Comfortable and close to the action.


    My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights last summer. The room was clean and comfortable. The tv was large and had HBO and pay per view movies and our room was very quiet. It's location is optimal if you want to be on the wharf. It's right next to Pier 39. We requested a roll-away bed for our teenage daughter and it arrived in a timely manner. We were very happy there and would stay again, though for the price there are other hotels I would like to try.

    Life saver!


    My new wife and I had reservations for another hotel, but cancelled it and ended up at the Radisson at the Wharf. The Radisson was perfect: just a walking distance...Hard Rock cafe, those sea lions, $10 boat tours, Joe's Crab Shack, the Bush man,...everything that San Francisco has to offer. My experience with the staff was more than helpful.

    Radisson at the Wharf rocks!

    Thank you Radisson at the Wharf. You help make our honeymoon awesome.

    Convenient Location With A View!


    Employees were most helpful. Concierge helped with our tours, suggesting ones she thought we would enjoy most. Rooms were clean and adequate, we had a view from the balcony of Golden Gate bridge. We found it to be a convenient location.

    Good Location Only


    The location was great, but not up to the Radisson Name. It was more like a Motel 6. We had to pay $30.00 a night to upgrade. Then, it was like a Motel 6 with a balcony and dingy hallways. The only thing I can say that was good, other than the location, was that the staff was very nice.

    Small room, great location


    We stayed here in November 2002 and booked through Expedia. The hotel is in a great location in the Fisherman's Wharf area. The check-in was very friendly and efficient, though the lobby area itself is small and doesn't offer much but a coffee cart, pay phones, ATM machine and two concierge desks. Our room was quite small, but the bathroom a decent size. We stayed on the street side and it was quite noisy with the street cars passing by all night and early morning, so you may want to consider requesting a water view room (though I don't know if that would alleviate the noise.) We still had a great view of the city from where we were, and the room was clean. The concierge service was hit or miss -- one woman we dealth with was fantastic, making recommendations and mapping out walking and bus routes for us. The gentleman in the evening seemed fairly irritated that we woke him from his slumber to ask him a question! You can't beat the location -- and we loved walking everywhere. For the rate we paid, roughly $89/night, we found no room for complaints.

    It was just fine


    I booked the Radisson Fisherman's Wharf with great trepidation, based on the other reviews. We spent the night with our 2 kids and it was just fine. The room was very CLEAN and we had no complaints. It was on the small side, but I've stayed in rooms that were the same size and labeled as a "suite" (with matching price tag). We were on an inside leg of the corridor, so while we had no view, we also had no street noise or noise from the parking lot. The location can't be beat - walking distance to all major attractions.

    What a dump!


    This place is nothing more than a dumpy MOTEL! The staff is pathetic, unprofessional, non-trained, argumentative, and basically horrible to deal with.

    The rooms are horrendous and we found bugs and hairs everywhere.

    What they call and charge for BAY VIEW rooms is ridiculous. It's a very small window that if you're too short you have to stand on your toes to see the water. What a Joke! The rates are way over priced and they offer no services to justify the rates they charge.

    The management is of no asssitance.

    We are telling everyone we know to go somewhere, anywhere else but here!

    Friendly, well-located hotel


    We stayed here for two nights last spring, The location is excellent for sight-seeing at the Fisherman's Wharf, catching a trolley just two blocks down at the Aquatic Park (beautiful spot for viewing the Golden Gate Bridge) and within blocks of many wonderful seafood and Italian restaurants.

    The staff were all friendly. The concierge had many helpful maps and schedules for streetcars, trolleys or BART. Rooms are small, but clean. There is a parking garage free of charge, an important amenity, as it's better to park your car and use the public transportation (and more fun).
