We were two adults and two kids and we opted to have a double queen room with access to the Club Lounge, which meant we would all have breakfast. Check in was easy, we got a higher floor room with views of the bay, it would had been nicer if we had a corner view room, however this was the... More

Maybe we were given the "discount" room since we got a little better deal online, but this was ridiculous. I'll keep it simple. The TV was broken, the ironing board was broken, the hair dryer was falling apart and chipped which I deemed broken, the sink water literally only came out boiling, and the glass shower door was off its...

I attended a meeting at Moscone and chose this hotel for its location, newness (6 years old?) and modern design. Overall, I was very satisfied. The service was pleasant and helpful, if a bit impersonal. I think it is hard to convey genuine warmth in that kind of setting. This is not about warm and cozy, and I wasn't looking... More

This is a great hotel just a few blocks from union square! The rooms are pretty big for a hotel in this area. It is clean and is well kept. Being a IHG Member I got free wifi, just an added perk. The only issue was the mini bar, I was taking a look at all the items in the... More

I stayed here for work but went in the weekend before to sight see with my mother and my niece. We had a very nice time.

We spent 4 nights as a family in San Francisco and I was doing this using (lots) of IHG Priority Club reward points. This gave me quite a choice in the San Francisco area but it came down to a toss up between the 2 Intercontinental properties.
