Only didn't give 5 stars because the location is great for transportation and the hotel itself is safe and clean, but it is fairly close to the tenderloin so we didn't walk around the area very much. However the hotel itself was amazing, great view, big rooms and amazing service. Particularly Jessica Martinez in the bar who made our Christmas... More

I was most impressed by the changes since my last stay over a year ago. My room was beautiful, clean and modern. Although I brought an extension cord this time, it wasn't needed as there were electrical outlets aplenty in the room. Everything was in good working order although there was a cabinet designed to hold a mini-fridge, but none... More

Holiday inn is situated down the road from the twitter headquarters in a fast upcoming business district. The room I had was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly. A special mention to the bellboys who really help with cabs and also give advice on how to travel and sight seeing.

For a $500+ a night hotel, this hotel not only falls flat on its face, but it is a total embarrassment to the IHG chain of hotels. On a more devastating note, the way that the hotel staff treat SPIRE guests (the highest level of recognition) is totally bad and depraved. The hotel is located at the end of the... More

Dates: 12th - 14th Dec 2015 On a holiday with tour group and stayed in this hotel upon arrival. The room is spacious and housekeeping is clean too. Hotel is along the market street (8) and is easy for us to walk out to the shopping area (market street 5) with just a 10-20mins walking distance depending on your walking... More

I guess the best way to start this review is to say, yea I agree this hotel is not in the best part of town. We never felt threatened in any way, and we did a lot of in and outs at various times. I will say that every staff member I encountered was pleasant and always seemed eager to... More

Checked in the hotel, the rates this week is outrageous due to events in town. But for the price paid, the room and service is average. Location wise it's better than outer town like fishermen wharf and it's within walking distance to Union Square area. Not much restaurant close by though.

If you have no interest in showering or bathing, this is your place. Everything else was fine. The place was clean, easy to get in and out of, my room was fine...I work evenings, so it can be frustrating that most things close when I'm wide awake, but other than that, no issues aside from the hot water thing.

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.
