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
location: perfect location for us! close to public transport options and the heart of fisherman’s wharf, can walk most places.
hotel: we found the room to be comfortable and clean, free bottled water in rooms and wifi. Big Tv and sofa area. Walls are thin but did not disturb us.
staff: all polite and helpful, stored our luggage with no problem. They helped me retrieve my jacket I had left in the room after check out very quickly.
It is a shame that there is no restaurant or bar as there is a very nice seating area in the lobby that is underused, the same goes for the courtyard on floor 1, it was empty any time we walked past.
The daily snacks in the lobby were a nice touch as well as the refreshments.
Although expensive, it seemed in line with other hotels in the area and would recommend to others if staying in Fishermans Wharf.
This hotel is located in a great area. Unfortunately the hotel, billed as a timeshare offers little to like. Some of the staff are great and helpful. The king bed room we occupied was small. Small refrigerator, no cooking and small bathroom. Think small hotel room. No other amenities. No restaurant. The Hyatt has a restaurant a block away. The decor is modern, but appears cheaply done. The only saving grace is that it is located close to Fisherman’s Wharf.
Located 3 blocks from the Wharf, 2 blocks from the streetcar and bus stop and 3 blocks from the cable cars.
Renovated property with very nice rooms and a gracious staff. The rooms are very modern, almost like a mini suites with 2 chairs and a couch.
Every afternoon, there is a sweet cart in the lobby with a different selection daily.One day, an assortment of cookies, the next day, an assortment of Hershey's kisses, and another, all types of popcorn.
