The Harbor Court Hotel has a back door that opens onto the Embarcadero, and this is the view during the day of the Bay Bridge. The entry to the hotel is on Steuart Street, and the front desk is there. But at the back of the hotel street floor is the "lobby," with a TV, books, tables, chairs and couches, where you can while away a view minutes with this as your view out the door. The staff serves wine for an hour in the afternoon, and there is coffee in the morning.
