Stayed here in May 2019. Hotel was very nice and room was very spacious and clean. Only spent two nights here before heading onto Los Angeles. Location is good and close to Union Square. However this will be my first and last time to San Francisco. Felt extremely unsafe in this city and unfortunately didn't enjoy my time there; however cannot fault the hotel was a nice stay shame about the city.

The hotel is conveniently located next to the Moscone Convention Center. It is newer than most of the other hotels close by. It is much quieter than the Marriott Marquis which is typically the Headquarters Hotel for conventions. As a member of IHG rewards, I was given a room on the 32nd floor with a great view of the bay and a late check out at 1pm. The reasons for the lower rating are due to: the front desk staff after midnight who were not welcoming to weary travelers, the poor quality of food for in room dining - it should be avoided, the high cost of breakfast - there are breakfast places within a few blocks with excellent food at half the price, and the lack of receiving points for my 9 day stay. IHG members should complain regarding this last point. I stayed for 9 days in business and booked through the conference. The conference rate oer night with tax was $428.68, far higher than booking during non conference dates. They informed me there is no credit for conference negotiated rates! Unacceptable.

5 nights at the Intercontinental San Francisco, Howard Street. Big room and big bathroom with both a bath and walk in shower. Bed and pillows too soft for my taste. Breakfast buffet very good with lots of choice, though I was thankful I wasn’t paying the $40 myself. For an expensive hotel the loo paper was really quite thin. I also had to ask for sanitary bags for the bathroom as the bin provided didn’t have a lid nor was it lined. I used the concierge team and found everybody very helpful and pleasant.

We stayed at the InterContinental for two nights, the location is excellent. The room has large windows, floor to ceiling offering great views. If possible request a higher floor, to fully appreciate the view. The room was clean, the bathroom is spacious.

I stayed in the corner king room, beautiful view and bright. Clean bathroom, but water pressure was very low. Good location and Front desk never smiled and does not make guest feel welcomed. Perhaps it’s the training by Intercontinental to show arrogance? Staff never smiled when I checked in or while checking out. Very similar with LA, maybe it’s the IHG DNA to be unfriendly to elite member? Hope the front desk staff can be more friendly.
