The View from The Harbor Court Hotel, San Francisco

We stayed at the Harbor Court Hotel during our last trip to San Francisco.

Every afternoon they had chocolate chip cookies and popcorn in the foyer. I didn’t really notice much else, because come on – free popcorn and free chocolate chip cookies? I’d sleep in a Ford Pinto and give it five stars if you handed me a collection of treats provided by Messrs. Orville Redenbacher and Otis Spunkmeyer.

While I am easily swayed by free snacks, I would like to say that, objectively, the hotel is very nice. It’s close to the Embarcadero and the Ferry Terminal. And check out the view of the Bay Bridge from our room:

Here it was during the day …

And here it is by night …

I was so smitten with the view, in fact, that I’m going to use that as my excuse for why I flat-out forgot to take any pictures of the room itself. But it was lovely, too. In fact, my only complaint was that every afternoon, there were cookie crumbs and popcorn kernels all over our bedspread. And whatever shirt I happened to be wearing.

I can’t imagine how those got there.
