Unbeatable Stay in Fisherman’s Wharf: Kimpton Alton Review

When’s the last time you stayed a hotel that truly made you feel pampered?

If there is one thing I love, it’s staying at a nice hotel. There is something so exciting about opening your hotel room door and discovering deluxe accommodations you can call home for the next few days. Recently, my family stayed at the Kimpton Alton in Fisherman’s Wharf. With generous amenities and a cool, hipster vibe, the Kimpton Alton Hotel is the place to stay in Fisherman’s Wharf.

Superior Amenities

My biggest takeaway from our stay at the Alton was that the amenities provided for guest convenience were above and beyond.

It was obvious that the Kimpton was very thoughtful about the extra amenities they provided. The amenities are endless. Basically anything you might need they can provide for you. Our room had robes, an umbrella, a yoga mat, an emergency flashlight, a refrigerator and a steamer.

Every morning, they offer a coffee and tea service. Since we are coffee drinkers, we also asked for a coffee maker in the room on our way out to dinner. We were pleased to discover a nespresso maker when we got back to our room!

The Kimpton Alton also offers a free wine and beer happy hour every evening in the hotel lobby.

Specifically For families, the Kimpton offers extra amenities that make the stay much easier. They loans out bikes and scooters for kids, complete with helmets!
