The hotel itself is very nice, with a modern lobby and nice rooms. The staff are also friendly offering a concierge to help you rounf the city. The location however is left to be desired. During the day the area is okay as it busy and most of the homeless people are hidden within the crowds. As the shops close... More

The hotel itself was what you would expect from a holiday inn, clean beds, easy check-in , friendly staff etc. The lobby was bright and modern and was very inviting however the rooms were a little dated but we didn't mind too much. Only problem would be the hallways obviously hadn't been vacuumed as it was very messy. Overall a... More

We have stayed at this location in the past. It is centrally located, close to the BART, and many areas of SF. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and clean. I would have liked a refrigerator in the room. The only complaint I have is housekeeping kept turning our thermostat down to 65! Lol.

The hotel itself was fine - and I was impressed that I could get a room a little cheaper than union square that had a pool. Unfortunately, SF is a little too chilly to make use of the pool. And even more unfortunate, this hotel is located in a horrible, horrible spot. We tried to walk to a 5 star... More

We stayed at this hotel for a family holiday travelling all through the US. We arrived late at night from New York, tired and a little frustrated. The staff immediately made us feel welcome. Check in was quick and effortless. We got an upgrade for all rooms (3). The hotel is conveniently located near Market Street. Shops are within walking... More

The staff here were all very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and a good size. The restaurant was good the food was good, the breakfast buffet was a bit pricey and the dinner menu didn't have a lot of variety but saying that the food was good.

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

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

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.
