          We reserved through hotwire, but hotwire cancelled unannounced, so when we arrived there was no booking. Instead of over pricing is in this situation they have us a better deal than hotwire! Free parking! Decent, clean rooms

          Russian Hill
          Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
          neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
          Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
          antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
          visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
          Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
          Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
          and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

          Parking is free, but I'd say they only have about 15 spots. I got there early and it wasn't a problem, but it filled up fast. It's one of the last hotels in the Wharf area with free parking that I know of.
