This Holiday Inn is located right off Market Street and less than a 5 min walk from the Bart Station. Since I didn’t rent a car I took the BART from the SFO airport to the Market exit which left me within a 5 min walk. Yeah the area is like all other cities -Downtown areas which has their nice...

This is not the Holiday Inn of my childhood! The room was meticulously clean, the bed was fresh and without sag, TV and bathroom were great. But there is only one single 2-prong outlet anywhere near the bed. So bring an outlet multiplier and a 3-to-2-prong adapter. Oh, and the neighborhood is bad. Don't think San Francisco is all expensive... More

The lobby of this Holiday Inn looks very nice, but I will never stay here again. My room smelled so mildewed that I had to leave the window open. Plus, there are small balconies, and anyone brave enough could easily enter from an adjoining balcony. This hotel borders on the Tenderloin District, so there are many homeless people around, and...

As a diabetic I have to have a refrigerator. $20 per day. Even though I am a Holiday Inn frequent traveler, I was charged $43 a day for parking. If you use a Discover card, $2.80 charge per day. A room that cost $163 ended up costing almost $190. Breakfast is $26 - no free breakfast here! Stay in Burlingame... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here based on a recommendation of a friend. We arrived a bit early so I called front desk to see if we might be able to check in early.

This place is in a bad part of town. We had to park behind the building and I was nervous walking that distance at night dragging our bags. We felt the need to move everything into the trunk that we weren't taking to our room. People were hanging over the balcony talking to sketchy types on the sidewalk. Inside was... More

I was really excited arriving to san francisco and everything went south when i arrived to the hotel. The registration process was really slow, the attendants on the front desk looked like they hated their job. Rooms where ok, we had room service and they took a day and a half to take the plates from the hall. Didn't get... More

Not very comfortable in terms of location, views etc. Very close to BART, but a little away from the main areas of San Francisco. Wi-fi, though covered in the rates, is fairly pathetic. Breakfast is good, but costs a whole lot, about 24$. I only chose it since it was close to my office on 9th Street. Market street is... More

From our room we got a nice view of the civic center plaza. It is walking distance to many restaurants and stores in the area. No need to drive or take taxi. The Chinese New Year parade passed right by the hotel.

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.
