Fishermans Wharf hotels are on the northern end of San Francisco near many highly rated attractions. Discover details on the most popular SF lodging options in this neighborhood including the Sheraton, Holiday Inn Express, and more.

You will find a lot to see and do in this district including the popular shopping area located on Pier 39 San Francisco and it's also where you will find the Alcatraz Ferry Terminal. This is a great option for those spending a lot of time in this neighborhood or traveling with children.

You can also easily access the rest of the city from Fishermans Wharf. Public transportation is a good option as buses, cable cars and street cars run frequently into and out of this neighborhood. Taking any of these to Union Square only takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

Below are some of my top recommendations for every budget. They are set up by star rating to make it easy for you to find the type of hotel that works for you. At the top of the page, you will find the four star hotels, the next section is for the three star hotels -- which are the most popular -- and the final section includes a couple of two star recommendations.
