Known locally as the Holiday Inn on Columbus - not to be confused with the Holiday Inn Express which is almost next door. A good hotel that I would rate at 4/5. Strong points were the great location if visiting SF on vacation, an excellent firm bed in our room, very generous room size (King Suite), very clean, and good... More

No complaints here! They allowed us to park our car several hours before checkin and told us to bring our luggage into the bellhop and leave nothing in the car. The location is perfect and the hotel is very clean and well taken care of. Parking is a bit expensive but worth not having to worry.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Rooms are pretty standard, but the location is excellent, can walk to everything. Great AC in rooms and many in second building have a nice view of the wharf. The only odd thing was the hotel has two buildings on neighboring blocks. They had to wheel our luggage and belongings on the public... More

If you are planning on doing touristy things and want to be within walking distance then this is the place you want to be! Not the nicest hotel but nice enough. I was lucky enough to book this hotel through Hotwire and got a great discount! Can be kind of loud at night but didn't bother me much. I would... More

This is a typical Holiday Inn - not super nice, but will do the trick. The best part is the value for the location. Most hotels in the Fisherman's Wharf area are quite pricey. You are within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, museums, and the waterfront. We took the subway here to avoid the $40+ per night parking fee.... More

When I arrived, checkin was smooth but the guy behind the desk was dour and very rude. When I got to the room it was noisy, and I mean it was like buses were passing the bottom of the bed, mostly because they were!

We spent 3 nights in this hotel. Booked it through Hotwire and received a way better deal on room rate. Parking was WAY too expensive $40 per day!!! Denny's in the hotel was double what you'd pay at any other Denny's. Location was convenient to walk most places or catch the trolley/street car. Walking around after dark can be unnerving.... More

Very disappointed in this IHG property! The hotel was expensive for what you get, the property itself is old and not event well maintained / renovated. I arrived at midnight to find no one at the reception / poor service in general. The rooms were designed in the nineties and did not get hot water in the shower for about... More

This was a very expensive property, so we only spent one night of our eight night trip in CA. While the facility was very modern with all of the amenities needed for your stay, we did not feel it was worth the price we paid. The room was very nice, well equipped and nicely decorated. This property is a few... More

Had a good stay in this hotel! The room was pretty large, clean and quiet. I especially liked the bedsheets, it was very soft and comfy for me and my family. We had a good breakfast since the selection was quite good. Also, location was the best! Just a few minutes walk to Fisherman's wharf even with baby in tow!
