We found the reception and concierge staff here to be rather brash. The staff were not as helpful or obliging as staff in the many other hotels we have stayed at during our 2 month vacation. I'd say there are other hotels in the area that would represent better value for money. Really bad quality complementary wifi. House keeping staff... More

This place is literally walking distance to most of the touristic attraction close to the wharf. This also helps with the fact that you won't need to drive around a lot. Internet was very slow but overall good. The hotel is pretty clean and staff are helpful.

This is a great property! Clean, close to Pier (1 1/2 blocks away). Walking distance to Lombard street (crooked street), 1 block away from the start of the city sightseeing hop on hop off tour etc... Also, the staff were very friendly.

Location was central to many sites. There are 2 buildings for Holiday Inn...I'm not sure of the difference. It was not a stellar hotel but served the purpose fine for an overnight in San Francisco. If our stay had been longer I may have skipped this hotel for something a little more plush. No complaints - staff was very nice.... More

Hotel was nice and clean, likewise with our room. Check in was made difficult with grumpy, rude and unapproachable staff. Wifi is free, but doesn't work properly. You'll probably find something better in Fishermans wharf for the same rate!

Great location and comfortable beds. All worked well and was what we needed. No hotel "personality" or charm but so close to attractions it did not matter. Breakfast was not included but there are lots of good places nearby. The hotel restaurant seemed expensive and bland.

The Internet at this hotel sucks! If you are a business traveler like I am and you are needing to use the Internet, for work, do not stay at this hotel.

Hotel is in a great place surrounded by the hustle and bustle of fisherman's wharf. Our room was clean and bed v comfortable. The wifi was rubbish though. Really, really slow. The only thing that let it down.
