Great location, easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Room was clean and much larger than an average room. We had 2 queen beds with my wife and me and 2 teens so the extra room was appreciated. Biggest negative was noise. Our room bordered a side street that had traffic most of the night then topped off by garbage and dumpster... More

The hotel is just a standard franchise hotel. Noting to write home about but it's a solid place to stay for a decent price. Located very well to most attractions. Little Italy and Chinatown are about 15-20 min walk from it. Coin tower maybe 30 mins. Pier 39 and Fishermans wharf are about 10 minutes. Be careful to request which... More

My wife and stayed there again, after about a 10 year absence and found the hotel to be fully upgraded with modern furnishing. Very comfortable and clean guest rooms - and the mattresses and beddings provided a really nice night of sleep. Excellent location - easy walking distance to Ghiradelli Square, Pier 1 , and all the restaurants and sites... More

Smallish rooms but clean. Great location for families. There is so much to see out your front door you don't really need to spend much time in the hotel so I think location is more important than amenities. It definitely served a purpose but not a memorable stay.

This hotel is situated in a great location, close to the restaurants and attractions. We walked to lombard street, rented bikes, cycled over GGB into Sausalito, we ate at an amazing restaurant in Sausalito, just outside of the touristy part, called Bar Bocce, what a location and the food was amazing.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn at Fisherman's Wharf. The Hilton Union Square really needs to observe what a great job this hotel is doing just down the road. We were greeted promptly and sincerely in a very well lit and open lobby. Key card access to get anywhere in the hotel and you cannot even reach your floor without... More

We did move... More

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.
