It's a standard, average Hilton hotel in my book. Clean with a comfy bed. The location is great for tourists who want to visit Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Del Monte Square or Ghirardelli Square. These sights are all walking distance from the hotel.
Hotel decor was definitely lacking, but nightly rates are not too bad because it's far enough away from Union Square. If you are in San Francisco on business, it takes longer to travel to the Financial District or Civic Center from here. There is no BART train nearby. If you don't have a car (and most visitors don't), be prepared to take the bus, cable car or taxi to get to your next destination from here.
Self parking is $38 per night while valet is $45 per night. Yikes!

The Hilton Fisherman’s Wharf is overall a nice hotel, if somewhat dated. Service is friendly and the hotel offers the Hilton level of amenities: well-appointed rooms and suites, an on-premises restaurant, a parking lot with self parking and meeting space for events.
The rooms are comfortable. Designer toiletries are available in the restrooms. A nice courtyard area offers sunlight without having to leave the hotel. A fitness center with modern machines is located just along this area.
The location, located at the end of Columbus Street, is convenient for those looking to explore Fisherman’s Wharf and North Beach. A bus ride along the 47 takes you all the way down Van Ness to Caltrain (a ride that takes approximately an 45-60 minutes depending on traffic). Trader Joe’s and Safeway are also nearby. As for attractions, visitors will like in particular Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39 and, yes, even In-N-Out.

Seriously; muzak in the lobby? I'm sure my grandparents would have loved to stay here, but it was a little dated for my taste. The Vintners wine bar is filled with what looks like cruise ship furniture. The room was pretty recently updated so the decor was really nice, but even chain hotels don't have to feel this soulless.

The staff at this hotel is warm & helpful. I love the location & can walk to so many of the things I like to do while in San Francisco. The rooms are clean, good size. Last time I was in a suite with a living room, kitchenette, bedroom & large bathroom... very nice. We also do groups and they have nice spots for group gatherings. One year we did Thanksgiving at this hotel and the Thanksgiving feast was the best ever.
