3.8/5 based on 10,000+ reviews on the web
Encompassing the northern waterfront of San Francisco, Fisherman's Wharf ranks as one of the city's top tourist attractions, packed with souvenir shops and seafood restaurants. Nearly 12 million visitors flock to this neighborhood each year, drawn by its museums, galleries, historical buildings, piers, and scenic vistas over the San Francisco Bay. For over a century the area served as the headquarters of the city's fishing fleet, which numbered nearly 500 vessels. Though the fleet's numbers dwindled over time, the remaining boats continue to supply some of the city's finest restaurants with fresh seafood. You can enjoy views of the bay from any number of restaurants, but try to explore other attractions as well, like the maritime museum, chocolate factory, and the infamous Alcatraz Island.

  • We started our journey at the far end of the wharf and walked from Cioppino's to Pier 39. We absolutely loved Boudin and had a wonderful sunset cruise despite lack of sunset due to fog and rain. If yo...  read more »

  • This is about the food not much more,but boy do you get some awesome value and choice,it at the end of a long walk but worth the effort 
  • Excellent Location while visiting San Francisco. it is only 2 blocks away from the Fisherman's Wharf, plus just a block away from a grocery store if you need that last minute item or forgot something. The staff there was wonderful. Friendly, attentive, and was a pleasure to work with when checking in and checking out. The Breakfast there on the weekends are awesome, Especially Sunday, where it is a mile long, just kidding... but from a family of 4, we never left hungry... This property is 2 blocks from hop on and hop off buses if you want to tour all of SF. Plenty of room in our suite, we didnt feel like we were on top of each other while there. Would we stay there again... of course. No question, I highly recommend this place. Easy to find, and just right for our budget, and what we wanted to see.
  • Pretty good place overall. A few things that kept me from giving it five stars were no bathtub in the room, the lighting fixtures had to be turned on individually with the lightweight only operating the entry light and the lights were glaring when they were on. Otherwise it was a clean facility with good service and a good location for tourists.
  • Had a great time here during a work conference. Enjoyed the workout facility; the hotel restaurant was pretty good and the room was clean. Would definitely stay again!
  • Hyatt Centric is a elegant hotel with a prime location in the middle of Fisherman's Wharf, but the insanely expensive parking (60 bucks per night!!!), subpar and expensive breakfast resturant in house and a demonstration against the employees not unionizing really took the experience down. I'm sure you could find cheaper, better alternatives nearby.
  • Decent rooms but staff very slow. Good location one block from fisherman's wharf. For the price they should have free coffee. Nice bar next door. Over $100 in fees and taxes. $60 mandatory valet.
