We stayed there for 5 days. I have been to many places and stayed in several hotels including holiday inn. But this is the worst experience by far in the price range. The room is spacey and clean. But they do not provide break fast, no water fountain and no refrigerator in the rooms. They also don't provide shuttle service... More

Most expensive Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at - in the world! But I guess SFO is know for that. Location is great, rooms are a little dated, but still comfortable. Only had a one night stay and did not use any of the other facilities of the hotel.
