4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Pros: Near Fisherman's Wharf, China Town, Little Italy, and the staff are very pleasant. The Clerk, Brandi who checked us in was wonderful and accommodating. Cons: Parking was so expensive, $58.00 a night for valet but anywhere else you would pay about the same. Also, the rooms were small, as was the bathroom.

Decent, clean well kept hotel. Good location. Nothing fancy, but not a disappointment either. I would stay here again if needed. Everything you need is within walking distance. Breakfast was a bit pricey, but so is everything else in the city.

Great location within walking distance to most of the location. Breakfast very expensive, better off to find off site. Rooms were very noise, outside noise as well as inside. New windows probably would dampen some of the outside noise. Due to it being a large hotel and during vacation season, lots of kids running through the hallways, despite complaints nothing... More

We have been to the Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf several times in the past because it is located in a great location - in the Fisherman's Wharf district - near Pier 39, the Cable Car turn-around, Lombard Street, Coit Tower and many more attractions. Chinatown is only about 20 minute walk straight-up Columbus Ave. and through the Italian district. The... More

I was greeted by Evelyn at the counter and she was great. She was friendly and was patient to fix my parking package. The hotel room was very clean. I walked around with my bare feet. There are very few hotels I would do this in. The hotel is situated in a great location; very near the water and places... More

Our fifth floor room in the "other" building had a view of Alcatraz and was spotlessly clean. When I needed extra towels they arrived within seconds and a kettle ordered using the card in the room also arrived. The air conditioning was a bit noisy but like other reviewers we switched it off at night. The streetcars also made quite... More

We stayed for 1 week at this Hotel. It was very clean, rooms were quite big and very comfortable. Within walking distance to Fishermans Wharf and all the shops. Close to Tram and Grayline Offices. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would definately recommend this hotel.
