The hotel is located in a moderate area and is poorly equipped. But quite typical of an american-style business hotel. The windows do not open ; the rooms are very small. …  read hotel review

One good thing about Holiday Inn is that they are consistent! You book Holiday Inn and you must likely won't regreat as you receive what you expect. Good room, good bed, good bath. Crew is not that helpful, but that is Holiday Inn in general read hotel review

On one of the top floors you have a nice view 24 hours. Take the view bugs more and choose these floors for your stay. The view is really good. You have also all posibilites to move everywhere you want by public transport. read hotel review

Great view to Golden Gate at top level
  • Recommended hotel

  • July 2014
Very big hotel. Many small bars and cafe around there. Supermarket also nearby. Very good transportation connections (cable-car, buses). Friendly staff and concierge. Front desk managed everything in short time even at main-checkout-time. Great view to Golden Gate Bridge and Bay from the top level. Recommend strongly to spend a few bucks more and stay in upper levels. Also view from pool is interesting. Good hotel - would stay there again at next visit to San Francisco. read hotel review

The stay was just about perfect. This started with check in at the front desk and only became better with the 18th floor room with a view of the financial district/Bay Bridge. A cable car terminus is located directly next to the hotel. We'll be back! read hotel review

    Really okay in regards to the size, 2 large beds in the double room, television was there, desk, coffee machine, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, small bathtub with shower inside, large mirror in the bathroom, big enough

  • Location

    The hotel was outside of the center, but there is a cable car nearby and the bus stop is directly in front of the door, it could not be better, and driving back and forth for 2 dollars for 3 hours is ideal… a lot of restaurants, cafes, supermarkets nearby, it is a drive to the airport, but with a shuttle it is less expensive than a taxi and works well

What an amazing view! Clean rooms, nice breakfast
  • Recommended hotel

When I arrived I was a bit sceptic because of the outside of this hotel. But once you step inside it's all good and the rooms are actually really nice and spacious. You have to get a room with a downtown view on the upper floors (ask for 20 and up at least) which will amaze you with great nightly panoramas as the fog sets in. Breakfast was surprisingly good as well for an american Holiday Inn and the location is great, quite close to a cable car station as well. read hotel review
