We stayed here for five nights, could not wish for a better location for sightseeing in San Francisco. The hotel is very clean and found the staff very accommodating. Cable cars 5min walk, trams and starbucks across the street.

This hotel is right next to the busy tourism spot of SF and price is reasonable. The room was clean and the service was OK. Honestly, I think the hotel needs some upgrade and mindset change. I still see lots of newspapers - nobody is reading newspaper any more and it is not green! I encounter Foli app which allows... More

Really clean hotel, staff were very helpful and the buffet was delicious. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything in fisherman's wharf and the sightseeing hop on/off bus stop was right outside!

I had an issue with a cancellation at this hotel. The hotel management consistently stated that they could not help because the booking was through hotels.com. However, hotels.com said that the only reason the room could not be canceled was due to the individual hotel policy. I spoke to customer service at Holiday Inn and was told that I should... More

Due to its location, close to Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman’s Wharf piers and easy access to Golden Gate, it can be a good choice if you plan to go to ride by bike at Golden Gate, to Alcatraz or to Napa Valley using ferry through Vallejo (Wine train ride), ‘cause you can save time on traffic going to these points. Its... More

A short review from me on this as views on the Holiday Inn FW seem to be rather polarized on here. We chose the hotel based on its location, not reviews. We used it as a base for a quick 2 night weekend stay in SF. Overall it was fine, we used it for sleeping and that is pretty much... More

This is the only hotel in the world I have stayed in where the room amenities include ear plugs! The hotel itself is good, nice location near the wharf but just far enough back to avoid the "bar noise" but the roads are noisy, the local segway city tours train each new group in the car part and fabric of...

My husband and I stayed here for a week, what a mistake. The hotel is dirty and is badly in need of decorating. The one bonus is the proximity to Fisherman's Wharf however I would not stay here again, there are plenty of other good hotels in the area

We stayed here for 4 nights in February. On arrival at the hotel after a long drive I was initially not very happy being told that there was no room available with 2 beds and a rollaway would be provided. There were 3 of us, all adults. At the time of booking in March 2014 (some 11 months previous) I... More
