If you want to stay in a beautiful, historic building and walk right out your door into the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf action—and are willing to pay for the privilege—this nautical-themed hotel is perfect for you. Located in the historic Haslett warehouse and cannery built in 1908, guest rooms are done up in navy and beige and decorated with tasteful maritime knickknacks. Kids love the treasure chest at the front desk and the Wii game system in the lobby, plus Ghirardelli ice cream is just around the corner. You’ll find the lobby lounge warm and welcoming, with a fireplace, plush red chairs, and all sorts of naval paraphernalia mounted on the walls, such as maps, compasses, and wooden steering wheels. The nautical theme carries over to the Blue Mermaid Restaurant, which underwent a full renovation in 2017. You don’t even need to leave the hotel to soak up San Francisco’s seafaring past— located off the lobby is an interactive museum that both kids and adults will love, a feature that has made this spot a historical national landmark since the [‘]70s.
