Location (view of and proximity to the ocean) was awesome, loved the cafe and the outdoor balcony! The room was a little small, but still works!

Over all my experience was very good. But if I may pick on something it would be the following. I asked someone at the desk where was the bathroom few moments after checking in. The person at the desk, not the same one who checked me in, very distrustful and rude said if that if I have the card I should know where it is. I totally understand the security is very important, but having said that I think is also very important to approach people with respect and cordiality.

Thank you so much for your review of HI San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf and for bringing this issue to our attention. This is in no way representative of how we would like our staff to treat our valued guests. As a manager, I will personally ensure to make our staff aware of your experience in the hopes of avoiding situations like this in the future. Thank you for not letting that experience sour the rest of your visit with us. Please come back to see us one day soon! Take care and have safe travels :) Terika
