A boutique waterfront hotel with a nautical theme in the Fisherman’s Wharf district of San Francisco, Hotel Zephyr has a furnished courtyard with fire pits. The USS Pampanito submarine museum is roughly 500 metres away.
A range of rooms and suites with porthole windows are available, either with a king bed or two double beds. Accessible rooms with a roll-in shower are also available. Standard amenities include a smart TV, mini fridge, workspace, and board games. Upgraded rooms have views of San Francisco Bay or the city skyline.
There’s a games room, computer station, and fitness centre here, plus pets are allowed to stay for an additional fee. The hotel also has a concierge service and complimentary Wi-Fi connection.
The Camper food truck, located in the hotel courtyard, serves a range of sandwiches, salads, and light bites. Beer, wine, and soft drinks are also available.
Pier 39 is 350 metres from Hotel Zephyr, and Madame Tussauds San Francisco is right next door.
The staff and management at Zephyr strive to provide a unique experience, and it was appreciated by many guests. The hip and funky interior is complemented by out-of-the ordinary amenities like outdoor firepits, and a family-friendly games room with ping-pong tables, pool and shuffleboard.
While some guests preferred to be closer to the centre of San Francisco, those that did their research knew that they were in for a treat with the convenient location. Guests could walk directly from the hotel on a coastal path to the Golden Gate Bridge. They were equally impressed with the proximity of Alcatraz and Sausalito ferries, and the ability to stroll to many area attractions like Madame Tussauds wax museum or Aquarium of the Bay, not to mention the charming sea lions to be found at adjacent Pier 39.
With a new renovation under their belt, it would be a shame if Zephyr was found to be dirty. Fortunately, this was not the case, with guests reporting top marks for housekeeping staff.
Not all views are created equal.
While Zephyr boasts panoramic views that include Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, some guests who wanted to save on accommodation were met with less than inspiring views of the parking lot or neighbouring building walls. If you want to splurge, you will be guaranteed an unforgettable view, but penny pinching guests were not as lucky.
Break the bank parking.
Guests discovered that parking in San Francisco can be a pain, for lack of space, and for sky-high prices. The good news is that there is plenty of parking near Zephyr, but the bad news is that you will have to pay a lot.
Staff not always on the ball.
For the most part, guests had pleasant interactions with hotel staff members. However, some visitors found front desk staff to be short and unfriendly at times.
