Reviewed 24 August 2014

Really good location for a first time traveller to San Francisco. Extremely comfy beds. friendly helpful staff. Very noisy though as our room was facing the road; I felt like I was actually sleeping at the bus stop directly opposite and had to wear ear plugs. Could be sorted with some decent well sealed windows!!

Expected a nice clean environment, but not the quaint beauty of this Best Western ideally located to enjoy the SF Wharf, with terrific variety of restaurants within walking distance, and prices to fit any budget. Staff were exceptionally friendly and professional and efficient. Rooms are surprisingly spacious and smartly furnished. Perhaps the best value in San Francisco.

Great hotel! Only a block or two from fisherman's warf, clean, friendly staff, and valet parking options! The hotel was expensive, but comparable for the area! Valet parking was $50 + taxes, but you could come and go as you choose. Rooms were small, but since we were on our honeymoon that was fine! :) They have free coffee in...

We just got back, and I must say that this was a wonderful experience at this hotel. The hotel was clean and the staff always welcomed us as we strolled in and out. it is only 2 blocks from the Wharf and 3 blocks from Ghirardelli Square and the Cable car line. Restaurants are plentiful, and easy to walk to...

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel with a quickly fixed hiccup. We arrived to wonderful staff who welcomed us, we were given our room and off we trotted. We opened the door to possibly the smallest room in history of hotels, basically should only be for 1 or a storage cupboard. We paid a fair bit for this...

This might be an unfair review of this hotel since we only stayed for a night, but my wife and I enjoyed this hotel for the short amount of time we were in San Francisco.

We stayed for three nights on fourth floor. Very quiet room although our view from the window was a brick wall. Restaurant Pescatore is a bit pricey for the size of the servings although the service was impeccable. Overall a pleasant stay. Wifi in the room a bit sketchy. Hollywood cafe have the most delicious breakfast. Make sure you get...

My wife and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary by spending 4 days/nights in San Francisco. We chose the Best Western Tuscan because of its location in the heart of the Fisherman's Wharf area. We did not have a car, but were able to walk to every major attraction in the area. While a bit on the pricey side, the...

Stayed in this hotel with my husband and parents on a trip in April. This was my second trip to San Francisco, and this hotel is great! Its perfectly located in Fisherman's Wharf, within walking distance of everything (Union Square easily 30 min away walking!). Its a great family hotel, with wine receptions daily and a good restaurant next door....

We booked a one night stay at The Tuscan for my 9 year old daughters early morning surgery at UCSF (we live about 2 hours away). We had limited choices since it was a late booking. We normally stay at 4 star minimums such as Hilton, Hyatt's and Marriott's, so I was hesitant about a Best Western. It turns out...
