I am going to be staying in the San Francisco Hilton in the Financial District (750 Kearny Street San Francisco, CA 94108).

What is the best way to get to Fisherman’s wharf (other than walking)?
Also are cabs available at Fisherman’s Wharf which you can take to drive back to the hotel?

Also what are some good cheap places to eat around the hotel?

Any good shops in Chinatown that sell jade jewelry?

You will have no problem getting a cab from your hotel, there are cabs waiting outside all major hotels or the door man can get one for you. Getting a cab at fisherman’s wharf may be a bit more challenging.

You can also catch a 9x bus just a 1/2 block from the hotel that will take you to the Wharf and take the same bus back. Ask the hotel concierge or check out the Muni website for more info:

By cheap restaurants I assume you mean under $20 per meal?
My suggestions:
Café Macaroni – Columbus at Jackson – Wonderful Italian food, opt for smaller space on east side of Columbus
Henry’s Hunan at 674 Sacramento, on Battery at Broadway or between 2nd and New Montgomery and Harrison and Folsom south of Market near the MOMA. – Great Chinese don’t miss Diana’s Meat Pie
Moderately priced dim sum at City View restaurant on Commerical at Kearny.
Cheap dim sum is Louie’s on Stockton at Broadway. Best hargow and pork buns in the city! Take out only
Marios Bohemian Cigar Store at Union and Columbus, a good place for lunch, try the meatball sandwich or chicken pannini…mmmmm!
SF Brewing Company on Columbus at Pacific a brew pub with good typical bar food.
On Kearney between Pine and Bush there is a whole array of decent cheap restaurants. Lee’s Deli Does Great Sandwiches, Burritos and Chinese food or choose from Thai, Japanese, Hawian BBQ, Mexican, Cuban, Indian or Greek restaurants on that single block.
Lots of jade for sale in C-town. Skip the places on Grant Avenue and check for places along the cross streets or in the alleys between Grant and Stockton.

    Well if you leaving a major hotel there will always be plenty of cabs ready to pick you up outside. If not just tell the concierge or bell hop to arrange one for you. That will be very easy.

    As far as the return, there will always be plenty of cabs to choose from in that area. Although they may be more spread out and you may have to flag one down.

    Yes, cabs are available all over the city. If you don’t see one right away, you can call for one.

    Or, you could walk over to Powell Street and catch the cable car.

    There’s plenty of buses in San Francisco. Check the Muni website, or just ask at the hotel desk.

    The F Streetcar or the SF Cable Car are also good options to go to Fisherman’s Wharf.
