Just an ok HI hotel. No real perks for platinum members.no discount at hotel restaurant bar. I'd stay again, just don't use the restaurant 😁 The room is nice, bed comfortable. Very close to SFO with free shuttle service. Easy to get to and friendly staff!

We had to stay at this hotel because we had a breakdown on our Harley Trike and the dealership was a couple of blocks away. It was a little pricey but we were in San Francisco! It was very upscale, clean, cool, the bedding was wonderful. We ate in the hotel restaurant because it was convenient. The food was really... More

Stayed the last 2 nights of our trip before our flight out of San Francisco and had a really good experience overall. Clean and comfortable, modern-feeling room. Very nice large open lobby where my husband kept stopping to watch World Cup updates as we walked thru! Easy drive to car rental return by the airport in the morning, so convenient!

I stayed here for one night before a flight out. The shuttle only runs every 30 minutes from the airport. It is close by. Check in took a while, the other desk clerk was on break and one lady kept asking the other clerk questions. It was not the clerks fault. The room was nothing special. The place is old... More

I needed a room to crash for 12 hours before my next flight out of SFO so I booked this hotel through hotwire. The price was extremely reasonable for this hotel. The room is big and clean and the bathroom is very clean. The airport shuttle, which was very important to my stay, runs between 4am till 12:40am (I managed... More

The room is nice, beds and pillows were comfortable, bathroom needs updating, a/c was a bit loud. Booked through Priceline and I got the area I expected. Stayed for 2 nights and paid only $206. Requested for two beds with a late check-in time and got what we wanted. They charge for parking which is $11/nt and they give you... More

Generally good hotel conveniently accessible from the airport. Complimentary Shuttle also very useful to go back to airport or the downtown area via the BART. Friendly staff and tasty restaurant (I really enjoyed their breakfast options). I sleep very easily, so no problem for me with the noise of the aircraft's. The hotel is located just under the plane paths... More

I have stayed in all kinds of hotels, from simple Motel-6-type places to 5-star hotels with amazing concierge service, but this is the first time I've felt the need to review one. I stayed at the SFO Holiday Inn at the beginning and end of a recent trip, for a total of 3 nights. I would never stay there again.... More
