Stayed here while attending a conference at Moscone West, right next to the hotel. We got a group rate of $149/night plus tax which is almost unheard of at this property. I booked two double beds to get the group rate but asked to get a king if one was available. I checked in at 10pm and they offered me... More

From the minute we pulled up we knew we would love this hotel. The entire staff made you feel welcome and were very helpful. The hotel lobby and bar are beautiful - a place to sit have a drink and relax. The pool and outside seating on the 6 floor is also a nice place to relax. The room and... More

Is always good to recognize when you receive an excellent service, but when someone exceed your expectations, that is simply memorable and unforgettable. This is what happened to us in our past stay in the Intercontinental Hotel San Francisco (Howard Street). Every single detail from arrival to departure was amazing, a special recognition to the concierge staff, an excellent service... More

We were very pleased with our stay. Our room was on 32nd floor with view of the bay. We had drinks and delicious French fries at the bar.. I would definitely return for a future stay.The room was quite spacious for big city hotel. The design is modern, clean lines.

The Intercontinental is always a favorite. The staff, premises and location always live up to its reputation. During check-in, they only had king rooms available (instead of 2 Queen which was fine anyway because I prefer having the King option)) but the receptionist was so apologetic and gave us drink vouchers. So sweet. Also, we signed up to their rewards... More

I'm thankful to stay at this Intercontinental location when I'm in town for business. The staff is always amiable and helpful. Lucky to have the opportunity to be here when the Giants won the penant. The bartenders are professional and are used to dealing with large conference crowds. Take your time and order a cocktail and meal at the bar... More

this hotel lives up to its five star rating and reputation. we've come here many times, and unless it changes, will continue to do so. everything is just perfect, from the green modern design, to the appearance of the various public spaces, like restaurant, bar, lobby, etc., to the complete and thoughtful amenities in the rooms. last but not least...

Speedy check in, personable staff, comfortable, lush beddings to sink in eases the business part of the trip. Luce alone, in all its gastronomic splendor is worth the stay. We've stayed more than a half dozen times and each visit has been as stellar as the first.

The hotel offers nice spacious rooms. If you have a room on a higher floor you will have great views around the city. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The internet works well and is fast. The wellness area consists of a very well equipped gym, a large pool and a jacuzzi. You also have a terrace with sunbeds... More

Have stayed here a number of times and this property keeps getting better. Location is best in the city. Front desk, concierge, and resturant are the finest in San Fran. And the views are amazing. Only thing I would suggest is that somehow the hotel build a bigger bar. Will definitely be back.
