Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf Hotel

  • Room Type : Twin room
  • Stay Nights : 8 nights
  • Stay Num : 2 people

The location of this hotel is within walking distance to downtown. There are buses and cable car stations just next to the hotel. There are convenience stores, sightseeing bus shops, drug stores, and supermarkets just a short walk away. San Francisco generally has a high hotel price, but the date we decided to stay was a bit cheaper and it was a famous Sheraton hotel. I decided here because the price was affordable and in a convenient location.

What is the exterior of the hotel? Check entrance and reception

There was a fireplace outside the entrance so everyone was relaxing there. My mind relaxed when seeing the fire. There were plenty of chairs at the reception, where we had something to drink, eat, and wait for someone and everyone was relaxing here. The entrance of the hotel had a concierge and taught me how to get to places that I wanted to go, using a day-to-day San Francisco map. Finally he handed the map over to me.  The people at the front desk were also helpful.

What is the room of the twin room?

Door seen from the outside

The room was nice, but very noisy. I could hear voices from the hallway, children wining, and sound of cars outside. Especially the noise from outside was noisy, such as loud music playing from cars, the sound of the brush  from a cleaning truck, and loud voices screaming. Also, I was disappointed that there was no refrigerator in the room. I wanted to cool canned beer and water. The atmosphere of the room was nice. It was based on black and white and it was a very calm room.

The bed is not too hard and not too soft. The springs were just right. The comforter was a thin futon, but when while sleeping I got hot and got out of the covers. But, I would feel cold again and get back under the covers.

Bathroom

I think that the water pressure was good, and I was able to switch the outlet of the shower by three stages by myself, so I thought that if you let the hot water out from the middle of the shower, it gave it would come out strong. The water coming out of the faucet was rather stronger than the shower. The height of the bathtub was lower than I thought. I had to really lie down

Toilet is quite normal. There was a rope for laundry and it was convenient. The shower curtain was doubled. The space between the bathtub and the toilet was so narrow that it was difficult to put down a bath mat

There was shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion. My hair felt messy after using the shampoo. I did not use conditioner and body lotion. The fragrance was not too strong. There were 3 bath towels, 3 face towels and 3 hand towels. Sometimes there were new towels that did not absorb water so well.

Closet and Safety Deposit Box

There was no door on the closet, and there was an ironing board, an iron, and an order form for cleaning. There were ten hangers.

In the safety box, after pressing the reset button, put in the 4 digits of your favorite number and press the lock button to lock it.

Mini bar / cafe

The ice bucket was placed with the glass and was placed under the safety box.

There were three coffee makers and three Starbucks drip coffee on the desk. There were two cups and lids with a Starbuck mark, two sugar and milk, and two thin muddlers in straw form. The Starbucks coffee was very delicious!

Restaurant in hotel, shop

There was a restaurant named SOL, but I never saw it open during my stay. There was never anyone there and electricity was not on. It seemed like a breakfast place for group guests. Dishes, napkins and cutlery were always set on a round table. Because it is outside business hours, it was off limits. There was a small shop next to the lobby. Drinks, sweets, breads, donuts, fruits and the like are sold there. Bottle of beer and juice was squeezed out of the case with a lot of ice.

Facilities in the hotel

As you go from the front to the back, there is a pool on the right side. There is only one small square pool. There are several beach beds around and adults watching the children playing in the pool were lying there relaxing. To go to the pool, you hold the card key and enter. You need a card key to go to the toilet next to the pool. Because San Francisco is basically cool, few people entered the pool. The day I was there the weather was nice, so I thought it was a good day to get into the pool. The wind was cold and I could not stay out long though.

The opening hours of the swimming pool is until 10 pm. There is no bar next to it. It is beautiful when being lit up. However, summer nights in San Francisco are really cold, so no one was at the pool at night. It was quite chilly in the morning and evening, it was cold even with a windbreaker. I even saw saw a person wearing a down coat. It is more fun to go out to town than to swim in the cold pool. Because the pool is in the place like the courtyard of the hotel, we can not see the sunset.

On the left side of the front desk, there were two computers with internet and a fax machine. There is no laundry venue and you have to write the washing on the order form and submit it.

Hotel surroundings environment

Because it is near downtown, it is always crowded. Many shops are crowded together, and many people are walking on the streets. The famous Fisherman 's Wharf' s crab signature is nearby and there are many seafood restaurants. Ghirardelli Square famous for chocolate and Pier 39 are also within walking distance. It was a great area.

Staff & Customers

The housekeeper always says hello if you see them. The concierge was also bright mixed in jokes when explaining things. The people at the front desk worked fast and I did not have a bad impression at all.

I occasionally saw babies, but mostly I saw families with children who can already  walk on their own.  There were not many elderly people staying here, because you use energy when sightseeing.

access

It was about 40 minutes from the airport. However, there may be times when there is traffic jam or sometimes sending a person staying at another hotel, so it may take longer. Because we are near the downtown area around the hotel, we could not do anything about the traffic. There were homeless people everywhere. They would walk around or sit down with signs, begging for money. I was a little frightened.

 

They had everything around the hotel. Supermarket, drugstores, restaurants, a two - story bus shop, etc. It was very convenient because public cable cars and buses are only a 1 - minute walk away.

Summary

When I hear the name of Sheraton, all I think is that it it is a famous and luxurious hotel, but when I stayed, it was more casual than I expected. It may be because it is in San Francisco. The room was clean and it was bigger than I expected and it was very good.

Some bad points were that there was no refrigerator, sometimes the corridor was dirty, and when you are in the room you can hear the noise from others well. Other than that, everything was perfect. Above all, the hotel being in a a convenient location the biggest reason for me for deciding to stay here. Convenience also leads to reduction of time. You can go where you want to go. I was never board and had a lot of fun. This is why I can have the best vacations. It was a smooth and fun trip!
