Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf – San Francisco, California, U.S.A.

If this is your first time to the tourist district of San Francisco and you want to stay near where the action is in a luxe, yet unostentatious environment, then the Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf is worth checking out (or I mean, in).

Of all the hotel chains I’ve stayed at, I find Hyatt the most consistent in terms of quality and experience.  At Hyatt, you can usually find competent, brisk guest services, quality furnishings, well-appointed amenities, and top notch facilities.  The Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf is no exception.  Its low-rise, red-brick facade exudes warmth and elegance.

The lobby is small, although functional.   It has a corner that is updated with a touch of post-modernism, with quirky furniture and paintings.

The guestroom is superbly appointed with a plush, soft bed and smooth, clean sheets.  The bathroom boasts generously sized amenities from Portico Spa.  The spacious guestroom also features a multifunction workstation with an ergonomic chair that will please the traveler who unfortunately has to tow work along.  There is Wi-Fi service throughout the hotel via T-Mobile.

 Hyatt seems well-aware that there is a growing crowd of fitness conscious travelers to whom going on a vacation does not mean a holiday from their fitness regime, and is eager to tap into this market.  It has an outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi, and a newly-renovated 24-hour “StayFit” fitness center.  It consists primarily of cardio machines such as treadmills, elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and a small but adequate free weights corner.

On top of the consistent Hyatt touch, this property benefits from proximity to area attractions such as Alcatraz, Pier 39, the postcard pretty Golden Gate Bridge, and the shopping mecca of San Francisco’s Union Square.  I’ll share pictures I took at each of these spots (and more) in my subsequent updates.  Stay tuned!
