Beautiful and Affordable San Francisco Stay 

Convenient to Fisherman's Wharf and Other Attractions

Are you scratching your head trying to find an affordable hotel that’s within walking distance of Fisherman’s Wharf? Look no further than Holiday Inn. That’s right, everyone’s favorite hotel chain is just steps away from the bay as well as all the sights and excitement the Fisherman’s Wharf area has to offer. 

Fisherman’s Wharf is a beautiful bayside area and one of the most popular tourist attractions in San Francisco. The Holiday Inn San Francisco-Fisherman's Wharf is on Columbus Avenue, less than one block away from the water, which is an ideal location for walking to the wharf. With that said, because of the destination’s popularity, it’s wise to book ahead of time.

Go out for Great Food and Sights or Stay in for the Amenities

The best part about staying near Fisherman’s Wharf is all the maritime sights and delicious seafood eateries right outside your door. To get the most out of your wharf adventure, head straight to Pier 39. From the mouth-watering seafood restaurants to the gorgeous marinas to the barking sea lions, Pier 39 is the perfect place to spend the day. 

For more restaurant options, as well as world-renowned shopping, take a stroll down the Embarcadero. This popular street runs along piers 27 through 35, which are filled with great shopping and beautiful views of the bay. While wandering the streets of Fisherman’s Wharf, you can also take a boat ride to infamous Alcatraz Island, which sets sail from Pier 33, just a few short blocks east of the Holiday Inn.

The Holiday Inn Fisherman’s Wharf has so much to offer, you might never want to leave the hotel. There’s an onsite fitness center as well as a heated pool and sun deck that’s perfect for soaking up California’s warm rays. 

As for dining options, the hotel’s Bristol Bar & Grill serves a buffet-style breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner. There’s also a Denny’s restaurant on the lobby level, which serves classic American eats around the clock.

Budget-Friendly Rooms and Suites

The hotel features 585 rooms and suites complete with plush linens, WiFi-ready work areas, and room service. Suites are limited, so you should book well ahead of time if you want a roomy suite with a view of the wharf or the Golden Gate Bridge. The hotel’s guest rooms are definitely the most affordable option, but rates tend to fluctuate with the seasons. Booking your guest room early is also recommended. 

The Bottom Line 

Holiday Inn San Francisco-Fisherman’s Wharf is a great bargain for its location and doesn’t skimp on service or amenities. The hotel truly is in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf and many of the rooms and suites provide views of the gorgeous surroundings. There are other hotels in the area, such as the Best Western Plus Tuscan Inn at Fisherman's Wharf, which offers comparable rates. The Holiday Inn, however, is family friendly and more modern than the competition.
