Booked this hotel to see a show at the Bill Graham. While the Civic center area can be a bit on the rough side, this hotel is generally quiet and well maintained. The hotel restaurant and bar are wonderful and the rooms clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend for the price and location.

Maybe I didn't get the memo, but did Holiday Inn inherit a large fortune from a rich uncle or something? Last time I checked, they were considered budget. You certainly wouldn't be able to tell from the way the desk clerks acted when I was checking in. The location...it was only so-so, but you're in San Francisco, so let's be... More

We stayed for 4 nights, hotel was great unfortunately the location is not the best. At first its bit confronting but like most things you work out how to deal with it. The resturant was good, selection limited but overall very nice. Staff very helpful and rooms very clean, overall we enjoyed stay (once you get used to the location)

My room was great- 14th floor. Bed was super comfy. The furniture was a bit rough- drawers not opening and such, but no deal breaker. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. The club sandwich was really good, as were the eggs benedict. I had an extended 9 day stay and can't really complain. The area around the hotel is... More

The Holiday Inn near the Civic Center in San Francisco is clean, comfortable and reasonably priced, especially for business travelers. It is close to BART and MUNI, and within walking distance of the Opera House, Symphony Hall, San Francisco City Hall and the state and federal buildings clustered around Golden Gate Avenue. The hotel also features parking. There are some... More

Was looking for an affordable hotel near shopping mall while on layover from vacation trip. Most hotels within a block from the Westfield Shopping Mall and Market st. shopping were too expensive on such short notice but Holiday Inn was 4 blocks away and very affordable. They have a restaurant which is open for dinner and many breakfast/lunch places around... More

There's a reason the hotel photo shoots up towards the top of the building and not lower. This location is next door to a homeless facility so you will find a LOT of aggressive, mean, scary homeless folks outside the property. It was so bad I had to check out early to feel safer. My favorite part was when I... More

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.
