Shuttle service was very convenient. I had not been to SFO before and was disappointed by how long it takes to get from the terminal to the rental car facility. I returned my car the night before my flight and utilized the hotel shuttle. I arrived very late and did nothing but check in and go straight to sleep. Shower... More

Stayed there last Thursday night because the hotel is just a few steps away from the South SF Conference Center. Great location if you are attending an event there. I did not get to use their amenities so can't comment on those. A few things made this stay a terrible experience. I want to point out that the front desk... More

First of all, I was very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff at the front desk. Normally front desk personnel can act like they don't want to be bothered if you have a lot of questions. These guys were so helpful, patient and accommodating. The onsite restaurant has decent hours and food, but service could be... More

This is a busy hotel with onsite restaurant and bar. Shuttle is only a few minutes to airport but could run more frequently. Many airline employees here. Rooms are ok but will be due for remodel soon I would think. Got this off of Hotwire so I got a good price.

Stayed here after arriving from the Far East, first impression was it was quite expensive compared to UK rates but was I very wrong (See other SFO hotel review). Check in faultless, room comfortable, good breakfast and free wifi and parking, no bar on site but there is a good bar/restaurant across the car park called Houlihan's. Nice area with... More

Due to an unforeseen stopover due to a missed flight back to the UK I found myself searching for a room for the night. Luckily I found a brand I had used before and recognised. I booked an executive room with breakfast which was nicely decorated and tidy. Hotel staff were friendly and attentive when required. Everything you expect from... More

The rooms are clean and the hotel is near the airport. I would rather have a good nights sleep and pay for hotel parking than leave my house early, deal with traffic, and pay for an off site airport parking lot. This way I start my vacation early. Their shuttles were fast dropping off and picking up. My only negative... More

This is a great hotel. I always like staying at holiday inns. My biggest complaint is you have to pay for parking. Why do you have to pay for parking when you pay so much for a room and a guest of the hotel? This was the cheapest hotel but after this fee i should of went elsewhere. I would... More

This Holiday Inn is about 10 minutes from SFO. The shuttle typically runs every 30 minutes which is too infrequent. I saw other hotel shuttles twice and in one case 3 times while waiting. In addition, shuttles from several Holiday Inns pick up in the airport and it is not easy to tell which one you should get on because... More

The staff both on the phone and in person were very pleasant and helpful. My room was large, well appointed and appeared to be newly renovated. The shuttle to the airport was quick and efficient. I had been staying in town but an early morning flight made this seem a good option. It certainly proved to be so and a... More
