Never fails to deliver, the InterContinental San Fran gave us a lovely stay for our first short visit to San Fran - rooms a bit dated - but service, location and facilities made up for this easily. We look forward to our next visit. We were on the 32nd floor and had fantastic views. Wifi access was great and the... More

Nice location, good staff but the hotel amenities are a little dated compared to other hotels in this chain I've stayed at. Staff have nice recommendations of restaurants and are friendly and amenable. Bar prices are a little steep but the rooms are pretty well priced.

Very good business hotel. Regular rooms are pretty small but junior suites are very nice. The Intercontinental Club is great with very nice breakfast, and nice pre dinner and after dinner food and beverage. Very good service. Located south of Market but not too far brom financial district.

This is a great hotel in the heart of SF. It's one of the newer hotels in SF and the rooms are nicely appointed and the bed was very comfortable. I found it very quiet and clean and would not hesitate to stay here again. The hotel also has a nice spa, which I was able to take advantage of... More

On 5th and Mission, this is an upcoming area with a lot of high tech moving in. The hotel is very well appointed, attractively modern and the bar is just fantastic. Easy walking to Moscone Center and Union Square. Be in the thick of it all. It is expensive, but sometimes you just need luxury.

I love this hotel. I have stayed in quite a few near Moscone but this is the best. Since I was spending a week at Moscone - this is the best there is. When I walk into the front lobby it smells wonderful. The beds are heaven - so soft and yet firm. It is quiet even on a busy... More

My first time at this hotel and I would certainly stay here again. The room was large and the people were friendly. I stayed with my nephew who was celebrating his 16th birthday. We ordered room service and were delighted that they brought it on a table and not just a tray. We ate at the restaurant and were unpleasantly... More

We paid extra for rooms on the higher floor and had lovely views of the bay. The rooms were very comfortable and pretty much what you would expect of a hotel of this standard but this hotel stood out because of the quality of its staff. Always friendly, cheerful and went out of their way to help - so often... More

This was our first time staying here and it was a very good experience. We decided to take a short vacation to San Francisco. Our first stop was the Mark Hopkins Hotel which was very nice but the InterContinental was a complete 180 degrees from that sight. This hotel is modern and looks great starting at the entrance and lobby.... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
