$45/night to park
Great hotel and location. $45 parking was a bit of a surprise, I guess I should have checked first.

Can't Recommend Riu Plaza Fisherman's Warf
It would have been fine had there not been several surprises upon arrival. I call it bait and switch. Booked because of the excellent rate on but then we were told parking would be 65$ US a nite Ka-ching...then we were told there was a "resort fee" $23 dollars US a night. Ka-ching! We wanted a hotel room not a resort we didn't even see the resort things yet were happily charged by the hotel!!!! This makes me very angry. I will not be recommending this hotel.

Thin walls and loud
The hotel is beautiful but has very thin walls so you can hear everything. The check in process took an hour since it was New Year Eve. I would not go there again!

Nice place, ok service
Place is clean and well located. They pull a $20 a day "resort fee" scam. Its not a resort, its a hotel and that is just a money grab. Wjen you call for the bottles of water that are supposed to be included they tell youbto come get it yourself at rhe front desk.

Friends Trip!
This hotel is older, but has been renovated completely from what we seen. The location is great! An easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf restaurants and activities. Beds and bedding were comfortable. Enjoyed the in room coffee and was nice to have a fridge. One negative in the room was either side of the sink needs cleaned in between the vanity and wall. Coffee service in the morning at the bar was slow. Only one person to get coffee and pastries. Bar service in the evenings wasn't worth tipping after the first couple of days. I stopped because they didn't appear to enjoy their jobs or speak to the customers. We paid $2600 prior for 6 nights and then had to pay another $23.29/day destination fee and tax. We received $15.00 per night stay gift resort cards that we could use for food and beverage only they really weren't $15.00. We were explained that they really were only worth $11.68 or something like that because the tax and whatever else was in the breakdown of the $15.00 was not included?? Don't hand them out saying they are worth $15.00 and then have all the staff explaining they're not! Bar staff would also come out to the fire pits and deliver drinks and sometimes never clean up the empties. Looked terrible! It wasn't the worst, but the negatives could easily be corrected.

5 day getaway
I had a great 5 day stay. The room was comfortable and the housekeeping staff did a great job every day. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel will charge a mandatory and predatory "destination fee" - the fee supposedly covers the cost of three devices to their wifi, although they advertise free wifi on The cost of parking is ridiculous, do you self a favor and park across the street at Safeway. The renovations are decent but it is odd that they didn't budget for better sound proofing. Like many other guests have complained, the street noise is disturbing when you're trying to sleep. Had to switch rooms, we had a queen deluxe and they switched us to a simple queen. No additional late check out, no price reduction - just a room switch to a cheaper room.
