During my quick visit out to San Francisco I needed a place to stay, but also wanted to burn up some Club Carlson points before the massive devaluation starting next month, that is, the end to the buy one get one night free offer when you hold the US Bank Club Carlson card. The Radisson Fisherman’s Wharf for 50k all in seemed like a great choice and my plan was to spend most of a full day in the bay area.
The hotel is undergoing some serious construction and renovation so be prepared for that for the next few months if you plan to book before your buy one get one free chance goes away.
I mean LOTS of construction and they do start rather early so be alert for that as well. Having said that, I got one of the newly renovated rooms.
Not huge, but had ample space and really a good layout for such a small area.
Even the work area was ample with free wifi (and good speed) and lots of power ports. Always a plus at any hotel (not sure about the dart board but whatever).
And getting a welcome card is always nice even if a computer printed one.
My only criticism is the bathroom size. It was tiny. I mean REALLY tiny. Plus, you had better shut the door when you shower. I had the door open as the room was so small. Not a good move. When I was 100% soaped up the fire alarm went off from the steam. What followed was not a pretty picture of your Delta Points blogger dripping wet and shaking soap suds all over the room fanning a towel madly in front of the smoke alarm to make it be quiet. Ugg.
Having my own balcony was nice and had I had more time I would have very much enjoyed relaxing and taking in the view.
Nothing like watching street cars go by and as mentioned the location is right there at the wharf. Just a great spot.
Nice if you are planning to end your day enjoying a meal here and then saunter back to your hotel.
I have never been to the “rock” but have done the helicopter tour over it in the past. I would love to see it in person one day.
Overall it was a nice stay. Breakfast was not officially included as a Club Carlson Gold (free from my US Bank card) but they went ahead and comp’d it anyway and it was at the IHOP in the same building as the hotel.
Bottom line I am not sure I would pay 50,000 CC points per night for this location but getting it, for now, at just 25k per night is a real value for the location. Have you stayed at this Radisson Fisherman’s Wharf ? – René
