This hotel was fantastic. We were travelling with our two kids (13 and 15) and we had a suite with separate bedroom and lounge. There was a sofa bed in the lounge which is where the kids slept. The room was very clean, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the concierge recommended two great restaurants... More

Most of us who visit the city do so because we thrive on its colorful and quirky character found there. The Intercontinental is color and atmosphere neutral. Being void of character makes it less then memorable. Beyond the neutral look it is a first class hotel that will probably meet all of your needs. Parking is pricey, but again this... More

I come to San Francisco for conventions at Moscone Center. I used to stay up the hill, but lately have been staying at the Intercontinental, as it is only 5 minutes from the front door of Moscone Center It is also within just a few minutes of Market street and Westfield Shopping Center. The lobby is roomy, the bar is... More

I stayed here recently for a conference for four nights. The hotel is clean and well kept. It's in a good location and close to shops and restaurants. It's walking distance to the pier and AT&T stadium for the Giants game. Check in was easy. I had a problem checking out. The hotel bill showed I had used the minibar... More

Everything was nice. The gym is just a little bit too basic. The Rooms are very big and the beds very comfortable. Service is excellent as well. I haven't been to the restaurant but breakfast is quite expensive. Wi-Fi is indeed costly but it was paid by the conference. At that time, there were btw many conferences going on, it... More

I last stayed here in 2010, and it's starting to show its age now. The decor is looking a bit tired and could do with a bit of a spruce up. The biggest problem for me was the doors. Why can hotels not work out how to close a door without it needing to slam shut? Whilst I was upgraded... More

Cannot say enough about the wonderful concierge---Bill and his colleagues.
