In the heart of San Francisco’s tourist-favorite Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 2620 Hotel is a modern 233-room stay close to all the city sights. Opened in 2013 but already undergoing a top-to-toe design makeover, the new rooms are a stylish departure from the current pastel palette and homey accents, with concrete-effect walls, steampunk-inspired furnishings and a sleek grey-on-white color scheme. Floor three is complete (as of summer 2015), and the results of the full revamp will be on show by early 2016. Consistent throughout are the top amenities, including 50-inch flat-screen TVs, free basic WiFi, work desks, mini fridges, and comfy queen or king beds. On the dining front, the new Bay Street Bistro serves up a healthy breakfast buffet of fruits, pastries and egg dishes between 6:30 and 11 am, while the clubby EvenKeel Lounge is the spot for light bites and a serious wine list of California classics. For sporty types, the gym is open around the clock, but the hotel’s central location means most guests set out to explore SF, and its mighty peaks, on foot. First-time visitors should consult the crack Coastal concierge team for the most up-to-date city sights and experiences.
In the Area
Naturally, you’ll spend some time roaming the Technicolor eateries and souvenir shops of Pier 39, but the best of San Francisco lies off the beaten track. Directly across from the hotel is the Hyde Street Pier, a nice alternative to its crazy-crowded counterparts. You can walk it for free — the views of Alcatraz are epic — or pay a small fee to board the historic boats moored there. Down the street, at the end of Pier 45, you’ll find the nostalgia-rich Musée Mécanique, full of old-school coin-operated arcade games that range from turn-of-the-century moving dioramas to child-of-the-’80s Pong. To explore further afield, hop on the cable car and ride it all the way to Hyde Street, a few blocks from the boutiques and cafés of tree-lined Hayes Valley, and from there venture into the Mission for the city’s most exciting restaurants, including Argentine-styled Lolinda and Central Kitchen, which has a pretty open-air courtyard.
How to Get There
Within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, the cable cars, and great restaurants. Loved the industrial decor. Very comfortabe beds. Air conditioned rooms. Parking is expensive, but does include in/out privileges. Loved being able to contact the concierge by text.
The first flag was The Lack of kerb side bag service, followed by a small one man reception area.
The room was clean and the bed comfy; but the Room is so noisy! Nobody slept beyond napping, for the two nights we were there.
Enough tea and
Coffee for two Cups each for the two if us. After that we had to go down to the lobby and buy a coffee. No milk available.
No room service at all. We won’t be back !
We only stayed here for a few days but were made to feel very welcome.
Tim concierge / bell boy was our saviour . Not only did he lend us his mobile charging cable , he came to the rescue with alternative airport transport when our courier failed to arrive. Without his gracious help ee could have missed our ongoing flight to Sydney.
Staff were also helpful with their tips on where to eat and visit .
Stayed 3 days and very clean and well maintained. Will definitely stay there again next time in San Francisco! Within walking distance to everything you could want, from the best food at the Pier to wonderful attractions!
