“Great location and nice rooms!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We love the location since it is only a couple blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli area. Also, it is right near any number of municipal transit stops so we can get wherever we want to visit around the city! We will definitely be back. We are repeat visitors and this time around they had redone the breakfast area and it is so much more convenient to get to stuff. They have a big variety of choices from cereal, pancakes, toast, eggs, biscuits... juices, milk and yogurts and on and on. We love it. And the staff is very nice and ready to help whenever needed. There is one particular desk clerk (I'm pretty sure her name starts with and A and has three letters but for the life of me I can't remember it) and she is one of the friendliest and more helpful! We actually remembered her from our last stay two years before because she was nice and willing to answer questions whatever we needed.
We will be back. the only thing I will say is our AC in our room did not cool very well and kept not coming down to the temp we set it to. It would get stuffy in the room but otherwise no problems!

This hotel was just a very short walk to Fishermans Wharf (2 short blocks once you round the corner onto Taylor Street). It was centrally located for almost any of the attractions. Transit was nearby in any direction (many thanks to the concierge for the map, it was great!). We tend to use public transit or walk everywhere when we travel so that was wonderful! Rooms were nice and clean, housekeeping staff very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful though some more gluten free options would be nice. Pretty much everyone we dealt with was very pleasant and seemed to want us to have a great experience in their hotel. Thanks!

We really liked this hotel. Deceptively big, but felt quiet and relaxed when checking in and inside the lobby

Loved the feel, a few art-deco touches and some wonderful prints on the walls added a personal touch, missing from some of the HI hotels I have used for business.

Breakfast was really good, everything from patties and biscuits to granola, fruit and yoghurt - would be hard not to find something you like, and although breakfast is probably when you discover how busy this hotel really is, staff worked hard to keep food available.

Room was big enough, not hugely spacious, but plenty enough room to sleep and wash/shower, and the bed was big and comfy - needed after a hard days sightseeing and biking! And always clean and tidy, cleaning and reception staff always welcoming and friendly

All in all a great hotel, we would happily stay here again

Cant comment on price as we stayed here using redeemed points - so good value for us!!!!

First, San Francisco is an expensive city so plan on paying much more than what you normally would at a Holiday Inn Express. However, the rate was reasonable in relation to other hotels in the area. With that said, the location of this hotel is excellent with a short walk to the Fisherman's Wharf area. The hotel is clean and typical of most Express hotels. Breakfast in the morning was very good with a variety of things to pick from. The hotel was full and very busy each morning. The staff did a great job of keeping the area clean and the food fully stocked. Overall friendly service from the front desk and housekeeping staff. They do have a conceirge on site which is a nice feature. They suggested airport transportation for us that was quite a bit cheaper than taking a taxi. Rooms were clean and quiet. We did not have a car but they do have valet parking available. Easy access to the trolly car. No complaints at all during this stay.

Needed a one night stay in the heart of Frisco. The location and price for a weekend stay was under $175 which was a great price for the quality of place and location. Friendly service, clean environment, great location, free breakfast, free wifi, what more could I ask for except maybe cheaper parking. Would return in a minute.

Room Tip: great location

We were very pleased with this hotel. The location is very ideal, within walking distance of restaurants, and easy access to transportation to get to where we wanted to go. There is a bike rental shop nearly adjacent to the hotel. This is where we rented bikes for a day trip to the bridge.
The room was nicely done, very clean, and similar to pictures online. No unpleasant surprises here. The included breakfast buffet was more then adequate but if you opt out, there is a lovely brunch spot next to the hotel. Service was good. Overall, we were highly satisfied for the price we paid and would stay here again if we had business in Fisherman's wharf.

Clean rooms. Right in the middle of many SF destinations. Great breakfast, even with bus loads of people there was plenty of food. We walked to the wharf, Ghirardelli Square, cable cars, the Duck Tour (thanks Capt Rodger!) and museums.

Room Tip: Apparently, none of the hotels by the wharf have views - height restrictions. Quiet hotel!
