The Gist This Best Western-branded, Kimpton-owned hotel gets high marks from online reviewers for the 221 clean rooms, the ideal location on Fisherman's Wharf, and the helpful staff. True to its name, the Tuscan Inn has Italian-inspired touches: a warmly decorated lobby with a fireplace, a nightly wine reception for guests, a pleasant courtyard with potted trees, and a solid Italian restaurant on-site. There's complimentary limo service on weekdays to the Financial District (call ahead for times). Be sure to request a courtyard-facing room, as Point Street can be noisy at night.

Thanks for Sharing Reader G (some of our readers are also rappers) says the Best Western Tuscan Inn is a favorite: "It's very clean. The rooms are nicely decorated. The entire hotel has a bit of Italian flair. It has an Italian restaurant with outside seating, which is great for breakfast."
