We sleep here alot due to my husband work. It is a great hotel with comfy beds and all you need but can do with a microwave in the rooms and bar fridge. Rather not look at the back of the curtains as it is black with dust. Pool area is ok but needs some shade or umbrellas. Breakfast is... More

I booked this room as an IHG member. Our room was on the 14th floor; it was spacious and clean. The location was about an 15 minute walk to Powell Street to catch the cable care and about a 20 minute walk to Union Square. The location is okay -- at 8th and Market. Public transportation is a block away.... More

The good thing about this hotal is it's easy access from the airport. It was our first trip to San Francisco and we were concerned about getting to the hotel. However it was easy. We took the bart train from the airport to the civic centre and the hotel is just a few minutes work from civic center station. The... More

Great hotel, with its own indoor parking garage. The room was large with a great view on the 11th floor. The bathroom was not overly big, but had plenty of counter space. There is a safe within the room. The area around the hotel is not the greatest, but during daylight, it is walkable to many restaurants, though there is... More

It is conveniently located next to BART station and is a few steps away from market street. The reason for me to stay in this hotel was its proximity to Moscone centre and Bill graham auditorium as was in a business visit. The hotel itself is good, clean rooms and courteous staff. Breakfast is ok. Wi-Fi worked well for me.... More

The Holiday Inn Civic Centre certainly lived up to its 4 stars: spacious rooms, clean, good amenities, fantastic staff. The only disappointment was the location. We stayed for 9 days for a business/leisure trip at the nearby Moscone Centre which is only a short 15 minute walk away. This was doable in the day but the streets surrounding the hotel... More

When I exited BART at the Civic Center stop, I walked up the stairs, looked across the street and there was the Holiday Inn Civic Center on 50th Street. Very convenient. There were not many restaurants near the hotel, so this was a bit disappointing and there were a lot of homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks, so the neighborhood... More

We stayed for a family holiday for 3 nights in Holiday Inn, Civic Centre in San Francisco. Check in was a bit messy since our booking was done by some one else and it took a lot of time to resolve the same.

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.
