On the first leg of my trip to San Francisco I stayed at Harbor Court, a Kimpton Hotel. This was my first stay at a Kimpton Hotel and it most definitely will not be my last. Here’s my quick review.
Harbor Court’s location is in the Financial District but also on the waterfront. The back door of the hotel lobby drops you off on the Embarcadero. From here you can walk to the Ferry Building and Pier 14 to enjoy the sunset. You can easily grab transportation from the hotel, as it seems like you can in most of the city. There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance, too, if you’re looking to eat near by.
I love the staff at Harbor Court. They were the most friendly staff at a hotel that I’ve encountered in a long time. I must say, it was extremely nice to see. They are always greeting you with a smile, doors are being opened for you as you arrive and leave, and the front desk is eager to help you with any and all your needs. However this chain is training their staff, keep it up. You’ve created a lifetime customer with the service alone.
Talk about a GREAT experience at this place. I joined their free rewards program before coming out to San Francisco and it’s the best. Being part of the program gets you free WiFi throughout your stay, a free wine/beer hour from 5 – 6 p.m. each night, a $10 credit to the mini bar, and fresh baked cookies at the front desk at 9 p..m. Like I said, the best.
I had a standard room and it was on the smaller side. Realistically, you’re just getting ready and sleeping in your hotel. The small sized room didn’t bother me at all, but it may be a deterrent to some. I’m sure there are larger room options as well if you desire more space. However, the room had everything I needed. I was satisfied!
The final say
Stay here. Period. The end.
