Your actual stay starts with our doormen who will welcome you, valet park your car and transfer your luggage from your car. Our butlers will then deliver your belongings to our residence for you.
Upon arrival, you will proceed to our lobby where our welcoming and friendly Dedicated Concierge Staff will provide whatever you need. You can enjoy a free breakfast for you and members in your party every morning and a free wine and cheese reception in the lounge at 5PM every day.
If you are driving to our residence, free valet garage-parking, with full in/out privileges, is provided during your entire stay.

Awesome 2 bedroom loft with amazing views of the bay and Alcatraz! Walking distance to fisherman's wharf and cable car just around the corner. Steve was great to work with. Concierge staff 1st class. Highly recommended!!
Robert, it is such a pleasure to have hosted you and your family. You were a great guest and we are so pleased you felt about our residence as we do - it is the hidden jewel in San Francisco!
Place is v nice, but I thought for the price breakfast could have been better
They didnt even bother to give one bottle of water and even housekeeping not included in the exorbitant rates.
We stayed at a much more reasonable place after this and they gave hot breakfast and water, housekeeping
I am surprised by this review, especially given the special effort made to assist this renter. We are an upscale residence and prices we're clearly known to renter prior to booking. Butlers were available 24/7 to assist with any needs and would have provided water had renter asked for it though our ad stated that given the quality of SF water we try to reduce use of plastic bottled water. Housekeeping is provided with a stay of 4 nights and the breakfast is continental - both of these are stated in our ad and they are the way they are because we are not a hotel, but rather we are an actual residence with full kitchen facilities.
Absolutely amazing stay in the heart of SF!
We have stayed at Ghirardelli for 2 nights. Location cannot be better. Fantastic restaurant at the door steps, shops, walks, bike routes - all max 1min walk away. 2 min walk to the trams. 7 min taxi ride to Golden Gate. 12 min walk to pier 39 and 15 min walk to pier 33. Locationwise it simply cannot be better. Accommodation is luxurious, very well appointed, WIFI throught, washer/dryer, fully stocked with utensils kitchen. Service professional and utmost customer oriented. Breakfast nice, wine and cheese in the afternoon as definite must around the aritificial bon fire on one of the terraces. Concierge well informed. Views breathtaking. This is the deal!
