We stayed one night as we were going on a Princess cruise. The hotel met our needs, was clean and convenient to Fishermans Wharf, and the Powell/Hyde cable car turn around. The staff was friendly and helpful. There were many restaurants within walking distance. There is a Denny's restaurant on the property; The food was good and came out fast... More

PROS: Loved the location near Fisherman's Wharf, cable car, & trolley stop. The rooms were fine, and with inside rooms noise wasn't a problem. We had a king suite so had a sofa & refrigerator--a plus. CONS: Check-in was at the main building so we had to walk (with luggage) around to the next block to reach our rooms. There... More

We never do Holiday Inn but on a recent trip to San Francisco, and not knowing the area all that well, I took to Trip Advisor and seriously researched prior to going. I bit my tongue and clicked that "submit" button. Only one thing could have made it better. Coffee before 7 am in the lobby. Room coffee was bad,... More

We stayed here for a night and liked the location of the hotel. Close to the wharf and close to other attractions. The room was clean, check in and out was fast. Overall a great place to stay if you want to be close to the water.

This hotel is VERY convenient. Constant taxi service and on sight parking so you do not have to fight traffic in San Francisco. Within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf and about 1,000 fantastic restaurants.

My booking was at the hotel on Columbus Avenue but I was given a room in the Wharf annex on Beach Street. The facilities in the main hotel were available but this involved a walk. and wasn't convenient. I was not happy with this move, but had no choice.The room was great, if a little noisy - from the street.... More

The hotel has an excellent location. Our room was large and very comfortable. I was very impressed by the daily attention given by the cleaners/maids to the room. We had a really good view of the harbour and Alcatraz (in the annex room 1506). The main reception staff were very friendly. Easy walk to Pier 39, the cannery and to... More

I booked this through Priceline and got a great deal. Great location, super close to all the touristy things, but a couple of blocks away so it isn't super noisy. The room was great and very convenient. We had a wonderful experience and would stay here again.
