With this blog posting, I'm going to begin a staycation itinerary for you locals (those of you from out of the area can call it an old-fashioned vacation!). My husband and I did this quick escape without a suitcase. We packed the bare essentials in our day bags, and on the first day took BART and an F-car historical trolley to Fisherman's Wharf. The next day, we walked along The Embarcadero, stopping here and there, and returned home on BART. Today, I will describe the lodging, and in future posts I will describe some restaurants and activities. Stay tuned.
Radisson Hotel Fisherman’s Wharf 250 Beach St./Powell St., (877) 497-1212, (415) 392-6700. 4 stories; 355 rooms; $$-$$$+. Heated pool; fitness room. Self-parking $44.
Covering an entire block, this lodging has some rooms with bay and city views. The pool is located within an enclosed courtyard, and a Johnny Rockets opens adjacent. Guest rooms are decorated attractively with full-wall murals depicting the Golden Gate Bridge, and the sleep number bed underneath the mural lets you determine whether you have a soft or firm mattress. Among the several hotel entrances and exits is one that allows you to exit into the beating heart of Fisherman’s Wharf.
