Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Hotel Zoe occupies a prime position in San Francisco’s iconic Fisherman’s Wharf, a historic district and the city’s most popular tourist destination, where you can watch sea lions basking by the waterfront, browse the shops for souvenirs, and dine at restaurants such as Bubba Gump for fresh seafood. 

Nearby, you'll find North Beach, San Fran’s Little Italy, and Chinatown – the biggest of its kind in the world – which are among the city’s buzziest nightspots.

Rooms at Hotel Zoe

Hotel Zoe’s rooms and suites have a tasteful contemporary design, with modern, minimalist furnishings and a muted colour scheme of natural, earthy tones. Unique modern artworks adorn the walls, and the bathrooms are carved from beautiful marble.

Some of the King Suites have cosy fireplaces, while others feature comfortable separate living areas, perfect for a leisurely break.

Food & Drink

The hotel's restaurant, Pescatore, offers up hearty Italian cuisine in an informal environment; the seafood is a particular speciality, making the most of the restaurant’s wharf-side location. The restaurant is open throughout the day: innovative breakfast dishes include Crab Benedict, while clam chowder, seafood risotto and braised black cod are among the specialities on offer later in the day, alongside a wide range of non-seafood dishes.

The stylish Bar Zoe is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner cocktail or a nightcap, accompanied by live music from local musicians. 


Guests at Hotel Zoe can enjoy access to a 24-hour fitness centre located right across the street. There are also iPads available for use in the lobby, as well as free newspapers, tea and coffee. Relax in the attractive open-air courtyard.

Activities at Hotel Zoe

The hotel’s central location makes it perfect for exploring the sights of San Francisco. Fisherman’s Wharf is simply iconic, and is the perfect jumping-off point for excursions and activities on land and water - head around the coastline on a scenic boat tour or take the ferry to the infamous Alcatraz from Pier 33, a short walk away.

Fisherman's Wharf is also a hub for San Fran’s famous foodie scene, and seafood fans in particular will love trawling the restaurants and stalls which line the waterfront.

Walking, cycling and cable car tours are all great ways to get to know the city. You can borrow one of the hotel's complimentary cruiser bikes to explore, while walking across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and hopping on one of the famous cable cars that travel up the hills are mandatory.
