This hotel advertises their bed as a selling point. It was very comfortable. The hotel itself was average in it's service & ammenities. It's a great location to stay if you just want to walk out of your room & be near the tourist attractions and great seafood restuarants. I would stay there again if they offered a special price. We paid $89.00 and it was worth that, but not much more.
I stayed 4 nights 5 days at the Sheraton and am undecided whether I enjoyed my stay at the hotel or not. I was there with two other guests who had no complaints, but I am a bit more selective.The reason we choose the Sheraton was because of its location. We had considered going to a cheaper hotel, but decide to stay at a reputable chain. The hotel is located in a great spot, only a short block from the wharf. The Radisson by the way is across the street from the Sheraton, and you can get a room that has a view of the Wharf. Though, I donÂ t think the rooms will be as nice.The room itself was adequate, with two new double beds, TV and Internet access. Though I hated the bathroom. It looked clean, didnÂ t smell, but still it wasnÂ t what I was expecting. The beds where brand new and very comfortable. As I mentioned earlier, you really canÂ t get a good view of any of the local attractions from the Sheraton. If you stay on the 4th floor, and are on either the west or east end of the hotel, you Â mayÂ be able to see something?If a 5-star hotel, luxurious room, and a view arenÂ t what youÂ re looking for, then the Sheraton is a good option. ItÂ s a short block from Pier 43 Â½, the ferries, and 3 minutes away from Pier 39. The cable cars are 3 blocks away, so is Ghirardelli Square. If you are going to buy any cheesy souvenirs, buy them from the shops, which line the base of the Radisson Hotel. They are cheaper there. You can see all of the sites in 3 days, though you will have to plan your trip accordingly. ItÂ s best to take a day tour of the city. The hotels concierge has pamphlets. We went on one and loved it.Two pieces of advice, if you donÂ t like the room you have, you can literally hit 10 hotels within a 4-block radius of the Wharf. Second, there is a ton of homeless people at the Wharf. For the most part they are nice and harmless. Though, there are a couple of troublemakers. Its best to just ignore them, and donÂ t stop for anything if they persist.
Smelt like sewerage - sounded like buses
Stayed here way back in October 02 but have only discovered tripadviser and felt I needed to share our horrible experience in the Hotel. We have been to US number of times and picked the Sheraton because we have always thought they were good hotels. Were we dissapointed. We had been to San Francisco twice before but had always stayed at Union Square and thought it was about time to check out Fishermans Wharf. When we arrived they told us we had a room with 2 double beds even though we have specifically booked 1 king - we could get over this, but when taking the long trek to our room the whole hotel smelt really bad (we later found out the area has a sewerage problem). We opened our window to air the room but found we were directly opposite a bus depot and a bus stop was directly under our window. We enjoyed a walk around Fishermans Wharf and dinner that evening and then a completely sleepless night listening to bus tires being changes and buses being revved up. We left the next morning (even though we had paid for 3 nights) and returned to the Handlerey at Union Square. Do yourself a favour and stay at the Handlerey and get the cable to Fishermans Wharf (Oh and take a gas mask!).
Stayed here in March 2004 and it was very poor. Cant believe its a Sheraton Hotel.
Dingy, smelly and noisy with wafer thin walls. We had a supposedly better, Club Room with an ala carte breakfast buffet - in the corridor !!
Location is very poor. Unless you like cheesy teeshirt shops. The hotel looked really dingy in the daylight. Avoid.
regarding sheraton fishermans wharf
Was wondering do all rooms have a minifridge or can you request one if not. Also if I book a king bed , I definetly want a king bed . Some reviews have said they requested a king a got a double. Want to know if their is a price inclusive with breakfast
Re: regarding sheraton fishermans wharf
I would highly recommend that you read http://www.sheratonatthewharf.com/FAQ
Answers: (1) minifridge, yes for $20+tax a day, (2) king bed - ask the hotel, (3) breakfast - all breakfast options are extra, although most hotels offer deals (for a higher price) that include "free" breakfast.
Then, if you have any questions, contact the hotel and get the answers in writing:
"For general Hotel information and special requests, please contact
(415) 362-5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org"
Contacting the hotel would be the best thing...
