We were sent to a different building which was older and far. The reception was always shut. We had a room on the 2nd floor facing the Wharf and the trolley rail was under our window. We only slept because very tired and jetlagged. The aircon is really noisy and there were no blankets. I froze the first night! I... More

Hotel is barely average by holiday inn standard. The reviews are spot on. Just returned from a extended stay in S.F. This hotel is better than most in this area , and the cost is close to the same. We stayed in the Wharf building (the one with the Denny's ) 5th floor , view of the bay. recommended by... More

Love San Fran And were down for a weekend from BC. If we got a screaming deal on this hotel I might be pleased, but in booking it "blind" on Hotwire we still paid well enough and with the price and level of hotel we hoped for we were disappointed. It didn't deliver the fully what you'd expect for a... More

This hotel was clean, had a friendly staff to answer questions and a snack area if you don't want the breakfast buffet. It is a block from the Historic Trolley line that travels the Embarcadero. This is an inexpensive and fun way to get to anywhere along the waterfront. I would definitely stay here again.

Good hotel 50 dollars to park was the only bad deal. Great to start without a car and get the car when your done. So close to everything don't need a car if you can stand walking 3 to 5 miles, you can see everthing.

On arrival the front desk was very busy and chaotic. I checked in but the customer service was awful. Being a platinum club member I usually get good to great service, I got indifference. In the room one of the beds had not been changed nor were there enough towels, plus the wi fi wasn't strong so loading was slow... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and the location is fantastic, very convenient to the Fisherman's Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge and the city. It is clean comfortable and has friendly staff. I would strongly consider the HI for a stay in San Francisco

The room we stayed in was the IHG floor, honestly the room was quite clean but was in need of some updating. Location was excellent - walking distance to everything! Pool area was quite good and all of the available facilities If i was to go to San Fransisco there is a good chance I would stay here again.

A very nice hotel with large clean rooms. Stayed here for a night before a cruise and found the location perfect for transferring to our pier and activities on the wharf. Quick two block walk to shops, street performers, and restaurants. The staff at the hotel were friendly and most accommodating.
