This Holiday Inn has been nicely renovated. The lobby is sleekly beautiful. The rooms are well done. If you book breakfast ahead with your stay, the buffet is only $10, and it's the kind of buffet that eliminates the need for lunch! We especially enjoyed the Chinese porridge, which may be a nod to the Asian tour groups that stay... More

I spent my first night on a trip including some nights in San Francisco and some in Santa Clara in November 2013 and was well pleased (especially the price). It is a very short walk from BART Civic Center and so convenient for the San Francisco airports (the international one and Oakland). Some San Francisco hotels tend to be noisy... More

Stayed during weekend for relatives wedding. Nice rooms and staff very friendly and helpful. Not that good of a location for walking but had no problems. Taxis are sometimes hard to get. Did not partake in the restaurant.

Got upgarded to King Bed when i asked for it. Mattress could be better, overall everything was clean and in order. Until Monday morning, we were woken up by thundering noise from the construction work across the hotel, but we werent disturbed at all during weekend. I was wondering why there were ear plugs on the night table. On the... More

Much of downtown San Francisco is experiencing new developments with the revitalization of local neighborhoods, but we apologize for the noise. We are currently working on upgrading the sliding glass doors in all of our guest rooms as we speak! Samples are being installed in a few of... More

Great service - friendly & knowledgeable staff. Area is a little down-at-heel with plenty of homeless and disadvantaged on streets; a little shocking for western Europeans who take some level of social care for granted. Room was recently redecorated and was nicely finished, the only downside was the un-renovated sliding external door onto balcony/ledge which was poorly fitting and hence... More

I am staying at the hotel now. I arrived after flying across the country, and it was only 11:30am. I was greeted by the nicest lady, Ana, and she went out of her way (seriously) to get me checked in. Better service than I have gotten at some RItz-Carlton properties. Plus, I got an upgrade to a really nice Executive... More

We seek to provide great value and equally memorable service to our guests in upholding our brand’s commitment to create great hotels guests love. Ana is an embodiment of our caring sentiment...

To start with the hotel, everything seem to be clean inside and the hotel staff are very helpfull. However the area is really thriving with homeless people staying around the hotel and so someone would feel uneasy at night. The hotel security seems to be good keeping strangers outside the hotel. The hotel seems to have priceline rooms, as I... More

Holiday Inn Civic Center is happy to provide clean accommodations and helpful service. We regret if your experience off property in urban downtown San Francisco was not our city’s best foot forward. As extra peace of mind for our guests, our hotel is very secure as we require an activated key card to access all facilities, elevators, and guest rooms.... More

I have a great stay on this hotel. All the personnel helped me a lot. Excellent beds and room service was given. The only bad part is the parking for hotel guests is not free and it is a lit bit away from the city center.

I stayed here twice, a few days apart, on my way in and out of San Francisco. After spending a fortnight travelling around the country and staying at numerous hotels, by comparison this one was a bit of let down. While there is nothing "wrong" with this hotel, i found it to be nothing more than average. The rooms are... More

Not sure to give overall rating of this property Average or Very Good because it was for me just Good (less than Very Good). There was no any problem with the room although it was very old again (as in Sunrise, FL), the door for the balcony had half inch to be close perfectly. It was not a problem because... More
