The top hotel at Fisherman's Wharf occupies a behemoth former cannery, constructed in 1908 of giant timbers and red brick salvaged from the 1906 earthquake. It sits smack on the bay and overlooks the tall ships moored at the Hyde Street Pier and the leashed dog-friendly San Francisco National Maritime Park. Rooms are fittingly decorated in a nautical theme, with anchor prints, porthole-shaped mirrors, and plush indigo carpets. The hotel not only welcomes pets, but it also has no size restrictions. There is a $50 per day fee per animal, but if you book through their site, they'll waive it.
San Francisco is notoriously one of the most dog-friendly cities in the U.S., so it stands to reason that travelers will not have to sacrifice quality lodging on the road just to bring along a pup or two. In fact, pet-friendly hotels are all over the 7x7 from Fisherman’s Wharf to SoMa, so whether your Bay Area excursion will be spent hiking by the Golden Gate Bridge, hanging parkside, perusing local pet stores, or imbibing at one of the city’s many dog-friendly bars and beer gardens, there’s a hotel nearby that will be happy to host you and your fur baby. Check out our list of some of the best pet-friendly spots in San Francisco—many of them are not too hard on the wallet.
