Room was fantastic with a great view, the pictures online make it seem as if it’ll be hard to see the bridge but the view was amazing. Anniversary package was l worth it and staff did a great job with the flowers and card. The front desk staff was super helpful and kind, even when we checked in at almost 12 AM- they were happy to see us. JaVonne was such a great help when making my booking and did a great job helping me set up the anniversary package. Will be staying here again - Chris C

I loved this hotel - the location is just amazing. Walking out the front door to the San Francisco waterfront is priceless. I’ve stayed at the Four Seasons on Sansome street and the Lodge at the Presidio which are both incredible too notch luxury hotels. But I think I enjoyed the Harbor Court just as much! I easily walked to the Giants game as well as the Filbert/Greenwich steps for some great sightseeing. Philz coffee is so close and so is all the public transportation which is just as easy to use as Uber. My family also had a nice dinner at Waterbar. I was by myself and I found the rooms to be on the small side but well appointed, and clean and I definitely recommend getting the Bay view room - not sure about the other rooms. I found the bed to be very comfortable. I appreciate that you still get a feeling for history in the old YMCA building.

We picked this hotel due to it’s proximity to the ballpark (20 minute walk) and what other customers said on reviews. This hotel exceeded our expectations. I wish we could have dined next door but due to our time constraints and games going late we will have to plan better next time to do this. We live an hour from San Francisco so we usually do not stay overnight here but a handful of times but with this experience we may make this stay a few times a year. Great staff, comfortable beds, and great location.

Beautiful historic building right across from the Ferry Building. Coffee and fresh donuts in the morning and wine in the evening. We had a beautiful view of the water. Like all city hotels the room and bathroom were on the small side. Staff was friendly and helpful, bed was very comfortable and the towels were really soft.

We used to stay here years ago and always loved it. Close to Giants ballpark, the Ferry Building, lots of good restaurants. It is not a big box hotel so the rooms are smallish, but the lobby area is large and comfortable. Still a great place to stay!
