Bottom Line

The confusing co-branding of this hotel really says it all: Best Western Plus The Tuscan -- a Kimpton Hotel is the lovechild of two very different chains. Contemporary rooms have some bold, quirky accents a la Kimpton, a luxury boutique hotel company, but the overall feel is mid-range. The hotel has the requisite Kimpton theme (the decor is inspired by Tuscany), and offers the nightly wine hours that are a hallmark of the brand, but it lacks the usual Kimpton features -- there is no fitness center and spa services are not offered. It's a solid mid-range option for the Fisherman's Wharf area, but those who come expecting a hotel up to Kimpton standards are bound to be disappointed. The nearby Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf may offer you more for your money.
