Hotel Description

For the longest time, this prime block of waterfront-adjacent real estate was occupied by a chain hotel that was utilitarian in the extreme — it did solid business, as anything with beds and a roof can’t help doing in San Francisco, but for those of us with higher hopes for hospitality, it was an opportunity wasted. Now, reborn as Hotel Zephyr, it’s finally a hotel that’s worthy of its location in the tourist mecca that is Fisherman’s Wharf.

The look is vibrant and fun, with a nautical theme that’s hard to miss — from the shipping-container walls in the public spaces to industrial wood headboards and blankets on the beds emblazoned with the S.O.S. distress call. If you’re lucky you’ll have a view of the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, or the Golden Gate, and beneath all the seafaring trappings you’ll find them well equipped, sensibly laid out, and as high-tech as any hotel room in town.

There’s also a surplus of social space, with places to lounge both indoors and out, supplied with board games, shuffleboard, and table tennis, and an outdoor fire pit — particularly relevant in this corner of San Francisco, where the breeze from the Golden Gate will have you reaching for your newly acquired outerlayers all summer long. And if it’s light on dining and drinking options, that’s only because of the implausible wealth of restaurants and bars around Fisherman’s Wharf — not to mention shops, museums, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, and all the classic attractions of North Beach, the next neighborhood over. Touristy? Sure, but that’s the neighborhood — and that’s why you’re here too, after all.
