Hotel Overview


    The Harbor Court Hotel, San Francisco's premier waterfront boutique
    hotel, combines the energy of the Financial District with the style of
    South of Market, on the edge of the San Francisco Bay.

    Our 131-room hotel, a Kimpton Hotel, features luxury accommodations
    matched only by our spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, the
    Bay Bridge and Treasure Island. Plus, our historic hotel is adjacent to
    the state-of-the-art YMCA, where all our guests have access to the
    workout facilities and indoor swimming pool. Our location, just steps
    from the Embarcadero and Ferry Building Marketplace, six blocks to
    SBC Park or Moscone Convention Center and easy access to Union
    Square and North Beach, allows us to offer the style and energy you
    expect of such a hotel in San Francisco.
Hotel Overview

     This historic landmark building
     on San Francisco's Embarcadero
     is near the financial district.

     The Harbor Court Hotel borders
     the waterfront with spectacular
     views of Bay Bridge, San
     Francisco bay and Treasure
     Island.

     The hotel is across from Rincon
     Center, close to Embarcadero
     Centers I, II, III and IV and just
     two blocks from the ferry
     building, California Street cable
     car and BART.

Every Hotel Tells A Story

        The story of the Harbor Court is Energy & Well-Being.

        The Harbor Court knows revival well. The hotel itself was
        transformed from its former state as a YMCA that housed over
        20,000,000 soldiers to a beautiful and charming hotel. The goal is
        for each guest to leave feeling more energized and inspired than
        when they crossed the threshold.

        The style and staff of the Harbor Court sparkle with energy and
        vitality. The décor is alive with color and pattern. The rooms are
        intimate and perfect to rest, rejuvenate, or be motivated by the
        amazing view. It is the hotel for someone who wants an energy
        recharge to get back out and experience the excitement of San
        Francisco. It is the perfect hotel for the traveler that seeks to be
        energized and feel taken care of – those who seek inspiration for
        their body, mind and soul.
Every Hotel Tells A Story…

                                  Story Elements
    The following are the existing elements supporting the story of Energy &
    Well-Being.

                                  Full Health Facility
    No other hotel in San Francisco offers a complimentary health facility such
    as the Harbor Court Hotel. For people who make exercise and recreation a
    priority, it should be unthinkable to stay anyplace else on this factor alone.

    Fully renovated in 2004, the club is a 3-floor Fitness Center with Olympic-
    size pool, racquetball courts, 3 exercise class studios, 250 classes per month
    including yoga & aerobic dance, steam rooms and cardio equipment with
    views of the beautiful bay. It is a YMCA, but is not comparable to most
    “Y”s, surpassing the facilities, amenities and service by far. It is referred to
    as 3-Floor Health Club rather than a YMCA to manage expectations -
    especially since the end product is far better than one would expect.
Every Hotel Tells A Story…

                                Waterfront Location
  Running, rollerblading, and boating are steps out the door. Most downtown
  hotels do not offer joggers such easy access to a hospitable place to run.
  Guests must run down Market Street or through the Financial District to finally
  get to the Embarcadero, whereas at the Harbor Court, you simply walk out the
  back door.

  Being waterfront, the view is also hugely inspiring. When taking in the view
  from their room, guests are inspired and energized by the silent movement on
  the water, on the Bridge, on the Embarcadero.
                                    Gourmet Bliss
   The Harbor Court is a food-lover’s paradise. The connected restaurant and
   room-service provider, Ozumo, has gained much acclaim. In addition, some
   of the City’s finest dining options are in short walking distance such as
   Boulevard, One Market, Aqua, Chaya and the very popular Slanted Door in
   the Ferry Building. There are also inexpensive and healthy options very
   nearby such as Long Life Noodle Company and Yank Sing.

                     It’s All In a Name

  A harbor means a safe, welcoming place and the Harbor
  Court is exactly that. It is a comfortable haven for active
  travelers to revive and energize. However, many travelers
  do not make the association directly with the above
  description.

  More often, the name evokes images of water and maritime
  activity. One might image boats, bay and colorful masts
  gathered near the waters edge. This association, while
  appealing, is somewhat limiting in terms of truly describing
  all that Harbor Court has to offer. It is so much more than
  close to the water.

   An Embarcadero hotel near the San Francisco Ferry Building and Moscone
                                   Center
                        The San Francisco Ferry Building
   The Ferry Building is your starting point for a cruise on the Bay, head to
   Sausalito for brunch or just sit outside and enjoy the view. Newly renovated, the
   Ferry Building is more then just a hub for boat riders. The San Francisco Ferry
   Building Marketplace is a people's marketplace, serving residents and travelers
   alike. Located within the historic San Francisco Ferry Building at the foot of
   Market Street, shops large and small celebrate food in all its forms, offering
   everything from artisan cheeses to the freshest of local fish

                   The Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building.
    A breathtaking walk across the Embarcadero promenade, surrounded by the
    region's farmers and foodies, celebrating the chance to do what many locals
    love best: Eat. Saturdays, 8am - 2pm; Tuesdays 10am - 2pm; Thursdays 3pm
    - 7pm; Sunday Garden Market, 9am - 3pm.

                             The Embarcadero Center
  Very cool shops and lots of delicious food. There's also the Landmark
  Embarcadero Cinema, known more for its support of the independent film
  community than showing big blockbusters. And just steps away is the turn-
  around for the California Street Cable Car line, which will easily carry you up to
  the top of Nob Hill and down the other side.
                                   SBC Ball Park.
  Home to the San Francisco Giants, the stadium is nestled next to the Bay and is
  in easy walking distance of the Harbor Court Hotel.

                              The Financial District.
  Here is where the work gets done. Just blocks from the hotel, and even closer if
  you choose to take the complimentary hotel town car to the office.

                                The Rincon Center.
  Outside, it's a beautiful post office from the 1920s. Inside, a bevy of shops and
  such. Go look at the murals on the walls, gaze at the five-story open
  waterfall…or send off the postcards you've written at the nearby post office.
