I liked almost everything. The location was a walking distance to fisherman's wharf. The breakfast was great. I liked the room. It was well maintained and clean. However, I did not like the parking. First of all, it was way to expensive. Second, it was all valet parking. Meaning, I had to wait sometimes about 10 minutes!

We stopped here for a couple of nights after a cruise to Alaska. The hotel was just a 15 min walk from the cruise terminal and easy to find. We arrived before our check in time but the charming and wonderfully good humoured lady in reception welcomed us and as we are IHG club members have us an early check in. All fuss free and easy. Our room was large, comfortable, modern and as expected spotlessly clean. After a day of exploring Fisherman's Wharf and having a lovely meal out we were a bit disappointed to find out that there is no bar at this hotel so no night cap. As much as room was lovely and comfortable we did not get much sleep due to a family in the next two rooms who basically kept slamming doors, shouting and letting the kids run the corridors at night. We had to endure two nights of this !!!! The other negative was the 'free' breakfast. OMG. Bun fight !!!...trying to find a seat ( there is no restaurant as such but a large lounge area ). The food is fast food buffet style with rather a lot of pushing and shoving plus far too many children handling things. You also have paper plates, plastic cutlery, and cardboard trays ( which get reused ! ). The gentleman was was tidying, cleaning and emptying the bins in the breakfast area was a real star. He got on with his job despite the constant barrage of questions he seemed to be getting from guests. He needs thanking properly ! Overall a hotel that is clean and bright, in a great location for exploring. Really great staff, especially on reception both when checking in and when checking out / leaving, but not the hotel to relax in.

We have just come back from our 3 night stay in this wonderful hotel. Great location for most of San Francisco’s attractions, although the street to the right of the hotel might want to be avoided. The check in was stress free and easy, the rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast was superb , although busy. Thank you holiday inn express for having us stay!

Location of the hotel we can not fault. Room clean but basic as expected. Not on a par with UK Holiday Inns. The breakfast was not what we had expected, limited fare and cardboard plates and plastic cutlery. Lovely staff, really helpful. But would not stay here again.
