Stayed here for 4 nights in Nov, very clean hotel staff welcomed us upon check-in very attentive and helpful with all our questions. The hotel is situated on Fisherman's Warf so is close to lots of great restaurants and shops. It's right by the pier so you can get the real feel of this part of the city and its... More

If you expect to be able to swim or anything you might be in for a surprise. Your building may be down the street from the hotel and there's no way to know when you book. Very misleading. Also the pool only exits to the street, so you'll be walking in a bathing suit and towel back to the front... More

I stayed here for 5 days while attending a conference in the city. Not going to win prizes for style, but meets the standards you would expect from a Holiday Inn. Service was good and attentive, and a friendly bar man .

Yes, it's a bit tired and could use some sprucing up (paint, repair of a few chips in walls) but you cannot fault the service. There was not one person who didn't have a smile (sincere, not lip service) nor made you feel welcomed. The beds were really comfy, bathroom was roomy, clean and well supplied. Location wise, if you're... More

We stayed at this hotel after recommendation from 3 different travel companies. We stayed in the Wharf building which has the Denny's restaurant. Staff were very good and were very helpful. The room was a good size. The only complaint about the room was we were woken early on 2 mornings by the bins being collected. The hotel is an... More

Our 2-night stay at the Holiday Inn was very comfortable, extremely convenient and nicely met our needs to be close to Pier 33 (an easy 8 block walk) where we took the first morning cruise to Alcatraz. We walked everywhere and never had to get into our car until we were ready to leave for home. The lot adjacent to... More

The hotel is in a great location. Just a 5 minute walk to the front and fishermans wharf. Could do with some modernisation however the rooms were clean and the bed was huge and comfy! Beware San Fran is insanely expensive for food and drinks - everywhere you go!!

When looking for a hotel this hits all of the marks. It is close to the Fisherman's Wharf, it is clean, and the rooms have nice amenities. This Hotel seems to be more tailored to the business professional as it has a lot of convention attributes but is still a nice stay for the tourist also. Decent prices and the... More
