Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf Hotel Review

It might not look like much from outside, but inside the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf, she is one festive gal—from the fire pits lining the parking area to the contemporary teal mood lighting in the lobby—and guests respond to the playful design, lounging in common spaces to sip wine, Skype their friends, and catch up on the news. Boisterous and bright, the hallways feature skylights, giant windows, and massive beach-ball pictures wallpapered between rooms. The fun doesn't end in the guest quarters, though: Sloped walls let in plenty of sunshine through large windows, highlighting the candy-colored throw pillows atop Signature beds, the plush leather chair, and the geometric lamps. The hotel's party-girl vibe caters to people wanting to enjoy the city rather than do business, which is why families flock here.

    Good location-Crazy Decor-LOUD

    We booked our stay for two nights off a discounted hotel website and it felt like we were treated as such. The check in staff was rude, very cold and seemed annoyed, and was also very hard to understand. Our room was across the parking area which we didn't feel was easy to find and we had to ask for directions. The room itself was small but also on the busy street level which didn't feel very safe. And it was so loud. I'm not a light sleeper but you could hear every conversation from walkers on the street, not to mention the garbage trucks, buses and cars.
    The room itself was pretty small for a family of four and very hard to get around in the tiny bathroom and bedroom area. We stayed at the Sheraton for the location because we wanted to park the car ($45 a night!) and walk the city. I probably would not stay here again, just because there are so many options in San Fran. And because modern touches are pretty to look at but function is so much more important to me.
