We own at this particular timeshare and opted to spend a long weekend here. We had a one bedroom unit on the third floor of the three story building. Our particular room only had a view of the building next door, but by going up to the rooftop deck, we were treated to fantastic views of Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, and the Hyde Street Pier.
The location of this resort is ideal, with the Hyde Street Pier a little over a block downhill and Lombard Street about 3-4 steep blocks uphill. Fisherman's Wharf is a short stroll downhill and Ghirardelli Square is a couple blocks over. We couldn't have been more pleased with the location.
Parking is available for $20 per night. The parking garage is tiny and a little difficult to navigate around, but we left the car in there the entire stay anyway. We were asked to leave our car keys at the front desk when we weren't using the car.
Concierge staff was pleasant and helpful. The unit was spacious and quiet. The kitchen was a small half-style kitchen with 2 burners, a medium sized refrigerator, and an oven. There were TV's in the bedroom and in the living room and there was plenty of comfortable seating throughout the unit.
