"This hotel is located on the edge of a business district yet right next to the waterfront. The room was fine, although I would opt for a king next time, if we in fact had a queen bed."

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
Other Comments
Half the outlets in the room did not work. There were no overhead lights, so the room was very dark. One of the only desk lights in the room was on a timer, so after 20 minutes it would shut off. There were amenities that were missing from the room (such as bathrobes, etc).

Replace your card reader system for the elevators. Everyone we talked to had difficulty using it to get to their floor.

First time staying at this hotel, we typically stay on the Embarcadero but haven't had the pleasure of staying a Harbor Court. It's great! I would stay again

Check in was easy. The hotel is boutique and trendy. Bay view room has an amazing room of the Bay Bridge. Room was small, but being in SF you're not going to be spending much time in it any way. I would stay here again.
