    Excellent hotel!

    Such a beautiful hotel!!! We arrived around 9pm and the front desk was very helpful (showed us where the nearest store was), and even upgraded our king room to the deluxe (beautiful room!). We only stayed one night, but wow, I wish we were in San Francisco longer. Definitely will be planning a return trip to San Fran and will 100% stay at Hotel Riu Plaza!!! Oh, and the breakfast was AWESOME!!!!

    Fantastic Hotel, Great Location

    We had a great stay here. The check in was quick and easy and the staff were very polite. The room was modern, spacious and clean with two comfortable large beds. The shower was good and stocked with plenty of toiletries. The breakfast was good with a huge selection of options. The staff at breakfast were always friendly and polite. I noted some reviews complained about the lines, but we didn’t experience that. The location was brilliant, just a short walk from Fisherman’s Wharf. Would definitely recommend

    Great location, friendly staff, breakfast included

    We stayed for two nights in January 2023 and were really happy with the hotel’s location. It’s an easy walks to restaurants, tourist attractions, a Trader Joe’s etc. the hop on hop off bus is nearby as were the self guided go cart tours which was so much fun! The included breakfast was good - hot and cold selections - and lots of tables so even though there was a lineup to be seated, it moved quickly. Decent room with an oddly inconvenient bathroom door (not enough space) but that was the only knock against it. Coffee and a refrigerator in the room. Gym was well equipped and the grab and go for a quick lunch in the lobby was great on arrival. I’d definitely stay at this hotel again.
