The lobby resturant
Very small room for over $200. Not worth it at all.
Street facing rooms do not block out traffic noises. If you are a light sleeper, beware.
Nice clean hotel with a good breakfast buffet
Using the computer in the business centre was very expensive. I only got about 17 minutes for $5 and because the transaction has to be by credit card, I am expecting an additional bank charge.
Friendly staff at desk, room cleaning and restaurant. Good location on bus and cable car routes. The number 47 bus goes right into Fishermans' wharf. No need for timetables, the buses come every 10 minutes or less. What's more, the famous cable car stops right next to the hotel, in California Street.
The staff were very nice, the hotel was great, the location was perfect, and the bed was amazing! I would definitely come back!!
The staff at Holiday Inn was very friendly and offered very fast service when needed.the hotel was very clean especially our room on the 17th floor which also had a good view of the city. the location is close to all of the tours that visitors want to visit.
couldn't figure out how to turn fridge on, parking was pretty expensive
good location, quiet room
Friendly staff... Helpful..... Great for Transport options..Gable car..Buses
first room between partying guys, wALKING BETWEEN TWO ROOMS, holding liquor bottles, drunk. Walking with no tops on. One had his whole back scratched. WeirD things, going on in those 2 rooms. We changed rooms.Tenderloin area, somewhat scary, close by, beggers.
THE STARBUCKS, NICE FRIENDLY MANAGER, WHO ACCMODATED US, ONE MORE NIGHT.. Nice restaurant downstairs.
Everything just OK. Very nice service. Quite good localisation close to many bus and tram stops.
- loud AC - unable to open window (probably standard in US) - thin walls, if your neighbors are loud you won't get much sleep - I heard their AC working and when their TV was on, or when they were talking - carpet in the room (it is harder to keep it clean) - room a bit on the smaller side - free wifi might be sometimes slow, and you have to renew it every 24 hours
- great view in upper floors - quick check out and check in - everyday cleaning - great location with plenty of public transport available and good coffees places and restaurants Overall it is a good hotel and I would definitely recommend it for a stay in SF, far from the crowded downtown and ugly fisherman's wharf.
Parking, I was unable to park in the hotel due the limit height limit, my car measures 6' 8"
The free wifi, location was nice, a lot of things to do around the area, places to eat with in waking distance..
the location, the wonderful view, the breakfast, the helpful staff
had to spend 40 dollars on cab fare and Lyft to come back for my card
Didn't like the ridiculous fee for parking your car, honestly id rather get a parking ticket for an expired meter because it would be cheaper than having to pay the fee for daily parking.
What I liked about it is that I felt safe with the security of having to swipe your room key in order for the elevators to move, being that it was just me and my 8yr old son. Also the location you can walk to restaurants and close to public transportation.
Far from bay, downtown and parks. Need public transit or car to go anywhere.
Nice facility. On main driving route N-S thru city.
Front desk was not caring with customers at all. system kept shutting down and they took all the payment from one card despite the fact that we want the whole amount to be split into three. they never returned my calls to. but facilities were good and clean
Our stay was too short.
Awesome view of Bay from room.
The view from the room was excellent
Too Expensive.. Room was provided right next to the elevator and non stop cable elevator sound for the entire stay.
Location is very good and comfortable even if you don't have a car. Easy to get around on cable car and Muni Bus.
Upon arrival we were given a key to SOMEONE ELSE's ROOM!! Terrible! Thank god they weren't in the room. Hard to get a taxi.
Rooms are a nice size. Bathroom is also a great size. View of the city was lovely. Douglas the concierge was SUPER helpful & lovely!
When'd you call front desk they take forever to answear the phone
I love the viw everything is close to the hotel I just love the location
Excelent breakfast!! The best service
Staff when I checked in was not as friendly from other Holiday Inn. No breakfast option was given when it was included in my booking!
