Fisherman's Wharf Hotels

The Fisherman's Wharf area is the most popular place for tourist accommodations in San Francisco. This part of the city along the northern Embarcadero was once the center of a thriving fishing industry, and a small fleet of commercial fishing vessels still operates out of its marina. It currently has many shops, restaurants, shopping malls, hotels and tourist attractions located along its waterfront.

At the center of the neighborhood is the old Fisherman's Wharf with a collection of seafood markets, restaurants, shops and a picturesque fleet of fishing vessels. Nearby, Pier 39 offers another assortment of shops, restaurants, amusements plus a large noisy colony of sea lions. Ferry boats depart from Pier 41 for tours of Alcatraz Island and excursions on San Francisco Bay. At Pier 45, near the west end of Fisherman's Wharf, the San Francisco Maritime Museum offers many historical exhibits including a World War II submarine and a Liberty ship. The shopping centers of Ghirardelli Square, the Cannery and the Anchorage are nearby. The famous cable car turnaround is just a few blocks away.
