San Francisco’s Embarcadero traces a long curve around some of the city’s most scenic bayfront, facing a panorama that stretches from the Bay Bridge past Alcatraz island. The Harbor Court Hotel stands almost right on the water’s edge there, in a stately brick landmarked building from 1926.

Like all Kimpton hotels, this one greets guests with a complimentary wine hour from 5-6pm moderated by the in-house sommelier, and then tucks them in with fresh-baked cookies and milk. They also serve morning coffee from local roaster Bicycle Coffee to help travelers get out of a bed draped in luxurious Frette linens. An alliance with the YMCA next door allows discounted access to that center’s 55,000 square feet of fitness facilities and swimming pool.

The hotel is about two blocks from the Ferry Building Marketplace, “a magnificent structure on the Embarcadero” according to Time, with “a fabulous farmers market on Tuesday and Saturday until 2pm, and no shortage of great places to eat.” All the darlings of the Bay Area culinary scene take up stalls in the market. Heath Ceramics bowls are spun together just across the bay in Sausalito before ending up for sale there. Wild mushrooms and truffles are harvested about two hours away before ending up there at Far West Funghi alongside pates and specialty cooking oils.

Guests also are only about three blocks south of Market Street, a thoroughfare that cuts diagonally across the city from the Financial District down to the stylish enclaves of the Castro and Mission districts. A street-level tram and underground metro system follow it down, also making it easy to reach Union Square’s shops. A ferry from the Ferry Building services Marin County across the bay, where wildlife refuges and peaceful beaches make their way up the coast.

The location of this hotel right on the water is perfect. You can use bikes provided by the hotel to ride along the waterfront, or just walk and enjoy the embarcadero. You also get free access to the YMCA next door and that facility has been redone and has all the amenities you could ask for. The staff at this hotel goes above and beyond to provide the best service.

This hotel had recently been re-done and is much nicer than when we've stayed in the past. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit!

It is a beautiful building at an even more beautiful location facing the bay. Couldn't have been easier or more enjoyable to explore the waterfront! The hotel also offers a complimentary wine hour for guests.
