I stayed here for work so I could be close to the Moscone for an event. It was probably 50 steps to the moscone which was super convenient. The staff was excellent from the valet to the check in counter. I was given access to the club level which was great for grabbing snacks and drinks since I wasn't around... More

Stayed here for a night to celebrate son's first birthday but had to go downstairs to throw away baby's smelly diapers because no other trash cans outside and didn't want to hand it off to a maid. Pool closes at 10 which is too early since I didn't get back to the hotel from sightseeing until that time. Comfortable room... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was quite spacious for a city hotel, and had all the usual amenities including a coffee machine that also made tea. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant one morning and that was very good but very pricey. The one thing we didn't... More

The WiFi here was so slow that it was practically nonexistent for the duration of my weekend stay. This may not be a big deal for people on vacation, but for someone staying over for business, this was a huge obstacle. I was told that the hotel was aware they has this problem every time too many people used the... More

We stayed here last week while I attended a conference at Moscone Center. It was literally 1 block to the conference - closer than the official conference hotel, the Marriott Marquis. Check-in was easy, and the staff friendly throughout our 5 day stay. The keys to get in the room don't require anything more than waving it near the keypad,... More

We have been to this hotel several times now. It has become our "go-to" hotel while in San Francisco. The rooms are great. Clean and updated. The club lounge has a wonderful staff and good food. The food presentations do not compare to other locations (ie, Boston) but are still adequate. The location makes it easy to get where you... More

IC SF remains one of my top hotel choices in town. They just do things right. Staff is always friendly and helpful, rooms are modern and luxurious, and the amenities are top-notch. The Club Intercontinental is a great option to take advantage. Their breakfast buffet is beautifully presented and of high-quality. Cocktail reception is self-serve with unlimited beverages and plenty... More

When the cab pulled up to the building, I was rather surprised at the decidedly uninviting exterior of the building. Once inside, my opinion changed, and I found the lobby and bar area to be very attractive and functional. The check-in process was smooth, and the staff was well-trained and responsive. My room was clean and attractive, with a great... More

Wonderful staffing. Top notch rooms. Nice pool, jacuzzi, a couple of open areas on 6th floor. Intercontinental Club is nice amenity to add-worth the price! Luce restaurant is high end and the food is delicious.

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.
