room was great. very fun. location was very convenient. i liked having cvs around the corner. i liked the magnified mirror in bathroom.
thermostat was not working properly.
The location is amazing, 30 min walk to Union Square and 30 seconds to Fisherman's Wharf, bed is big and extremely comfortable, access to purified water on each floor, room is nice and big too. Staff were very hospitable.
There is nothing to dislike! Bathroom floor gets wet during a shower due to there being a curtain as a door but that's the only thing.
- Competitive price. - Good location. Good hub to go to most of major attractions in the city, great restaurants nearby (Pier 39, La mar, Mama's, etc). - Cool little lounge to hang out. - Comfy bed.
- The cons I had was related to the same matter: the competitive rate (30-40% lower than a true upscale hotel) and its good location keeps the hotel packed at all times. This leads to 2 problems: 1) heavy wear&tear (dirty walls, ugly bathrooms and roaches -killed one myself), and, 2) no flexibility on having an early check-in or late check-out (the answer will be no right away, not even bother to ask you first your room number, not even for 30 min -yeah to that point). And this is definitely not a 4-star hotel (at least does not feel like one despite all cool little things and games it has), so it's no really comparable, despite advertised photos show otherwise. Not a bad choice either if you weight-up the pros. - Millennial alert: the hotel is located out of the parking zone for scooters and bikes.
This is my go to hotel in the city. Fun family atmosphere and easy access to everything.
Bed was a bit uncomfortable.
Fun style throughout the hotel. Many charging stations & outlets in the lobby as well as game room - very entertaining. Friendly staff. Walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf & Pier 39.
Extra hidden charges. Parking was expensive.
Hotel Zephyr is conveniently located in the Fisherman’s Wharf district on San Francisco Bay. It’s a close three-minute walk to Pier 41, and it’s only five short miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. Given its location, it is fitting that the hotel features a nautical theme throughout the property.
The rooms are well-lit and airy, giving guests the sense of freedom they would feel if they were on a seafaring ship. There are minifridges, coffee makers and smart TVs to round out the experience. Some of the rooms feature balconies on which guests can relax, enjoy the free Wi-Fi and the amazing scenery. The bay lies below, as does the wharf. There are also suites with both one and two bedrooms and these have windows and sitting areas that go from the floor to the ceiling, creating a sense of size that is at once larger than life and comforting.
The hotel has a gym so guests can keep in shape during their stay. When it’s time to just hang out, the hotel’s lounge is the spot. It features contemporary design elements. Guests can head there for a game of pool or they can slip outside to the terrace and enjoy the fire pits and sculptures that decorate the area.
For eats, the Fire and Brew Restaurant offers good food for a variety of palates, and there is a business center as well.
Hotel Zephyr is a nice place to both relax and remain productive while enjoying the amenities.
