My family was excited to stay here. However as a result of our "upgrade" from my Gold Ambassador membership, we were told we would have to wait while our room cleaning was "expedited" and hour later we were told our room would not be ready for a long time. I decided, I do not know what expedited means. We asked...

This hotel is very nice, clean and modern. We had a high floor, corner room with floor to ceiling windows that offered amazing, unobstructed views of the city. Large room and bathroom, very clean and modern. Quiet room, even though it is in the middle of the city and offers amazing city views, it is not loud. The breakfast was...

Room and staff are up to standards I am accustomed to in this convenient hotel,that I stay in every January when I attend a convention at Moscone. This time,I tried to book 6 months in advance as a Spire Elite ambassador member but was told on the website that "one or more nights unavailable." This was because ,I assume,the hotel...

The room was glass windows on two sides with a great view. It was a spacious corner room and the king bed was a delight with top of the line comforter and soft sheets. The hotel was a great location for shopping and seeing the sights.

Have stayed in a few IC hotels - I wouldn't describe this as one of the best but a good standard nonetheless. Large comfortable room with cinema proportion TV (the best I've ever seen in a hotel) clean and quiet so no complaints there. Communal areas mixed and little atmosphere, however this is probably due to the main use as...

This hotel is in a great location if you have a convention to attend in Moscone or if your office is in the area. And even if you have to walk a bit more, I will prefer this than the hotels near Union Square. Its a lot more quiet. The front desk and staff were friendly and helpful. Great experience...

Great hotel! The service is spot on. The view from the 30th floor cannot be beat. The location in SF is convenient and a great starting point when running around SF; near to BART, MUNI, cable cars, shopping, restaurants, etc. The hotel bar and restaurant are nice, the food was fresh and delicious. The Intercontinental is a top choice hotel...

All in all this was a good stay, but a few things struck me to write an updated review of the hotel and knock it down to a 3 rating. The room I had was apparently some upgrade that I was charged a supplement for. I am not sure what the upgrade was for, because it wasn't much of a...

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
