Recommended Hotel: Harbor Court Hotel
Why: Outdoor Pool, Complimentary Wine Hour, On-Site Restaurant
The Embarcadero area is an excellent area for sightseeing in San Francisco. Because it’s so close to the Bay and Ferry Plaza, the room rates in this area are all expensive. The best value you will find is at the Harbor Court. The $205/night average weekend rate is a steal in this area; on weekdays you’ll pay closer to $342/night. The outdoor seasonal pool is great for kids to enjoy while parents relax. The on-site restaurant, Ozumo, serves Japanese cuisine and is known for sushi and seasonal cocktails. The complimentary wine hour is a fun way to socialize in the evenings. Some guests do complain that the rooms are small, but that’s to be expected in this area. Overall, we recommend Harbor Court to mature couples who wish to be right in the heart of the sightseeing action.
