the parking is not complimentary

The rooms had typical comforts (duvets, plenty of pillows, large towels, curved shower curtains, robes) and modern style furniture. My room was very clean. Parking is not complimentary though at the time I booked the room the description noted that it was. The location was convenient to Fisherman's Wharf which seemed it could serve as a starting point for any tourist destinations in San Francisco. There was not coffee or any such extras in the lobby.

Bakeries and restaurants just around the corner from the hotel offer an array of meal options. The Ferry Building is about a twenty minute walk and serves as another choice for meal options and food shopping.

Great Hotel Right on the Wharf

The hotel location and easy parking were great for our first visit to San Francisco. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was nice and had no issues and a great view over the courtyard out to the bay. The bed was a sleep-by-number which is cool, but I had some trouble using the controller. The lobby itself was nice, but didn't have a good clean bathroom (just the ones by the pool outside). The courtyard was really nice too, but it was too cold during our visit for us to make good use. We did sit by the fire pit for a few one night, which is a nice touch.

Great location, close to almost everything

Hotel location is prime. We used public transportation which was super convenient to use, especially If you use google maps app on your smart phone. Hotel appearance is clean. Just wished it supplied a mini fridge. 7-11, subway, and IHOP is just a few steps away if you want a quick snack for the room. I really enjoyed our stay here and would probably return.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use google maps app so getting around the city is easy when using bus lines. Bus fare is $2 which includes transfers up to 90 min. Theirs a bus stop almost on every corner so you can go anywhere in the city. Turn your GPS on, let your phone find your location and type your destination. Don't forget to change your route of transportation to bus. We spent less than $20 in 4 days and saw all the attractions in SF.

Not what I expected from Radisson

Location is ok if you have a room on the parking garage side I guess but our room was on Beach St and kitty corner from the bus garage - extremely noisy as in bus drivers talking over the loud speaker could be heard like they were in your room and guess what, they run till after 2 AM. Room was ok - we had a bit of an issue with ants tho. Staff was fantastic, very courteous and caring. Over all the hotel needs a facelift as it's age was definitely showing.

awesome stay on the wharf

Loved staying down at the wharf in San Francisco. The location and staff don't get much better than this! We really didn't need too much in amenities because we walked across the street for plenty of great food and entertainment. I wish it were just a tad cleaner in the bathroom but imagine with all the salt water it is hard to maintain. Loved the staff!

A good value compared to other hotels in the area. Liked the set up with the room and they actually have mirror and plugs outside of the bathroom. A women must have helped design the setup.
