Good visit but Double beds were more like a king single. Location a bit far from Fishermans Wharf but really close to Cable car. Restaurant and Bar only opened at particular times which not very accommodating if your there on holidays. Although Concierge were very helpful.

When I visit SF I usually stay at one of the ICs but their prices were extraordinary this trip so I booked Holiday Inn GG. While I knew the property would be clean and the service would be acceptable, I was pleasantly surprised about my overall experience. As mentioned in previous reviews the location of this Holiday Inn is perfect to see the city. I walked everywhere and had no issues plus the hotel is between a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes as well as a Starbucks and a Peets. Lol. My room was very large by city standards and the furniture appeared fairly new. The bedding was of a good quality and the pillows and mattress led to several good nights of deep sleep. The WiFi was adequate and there were plenty of TV options when I was in the room. I used the fitness room daily and was able to get in an hour cardio workout as well as so time on weights. I appreciate the free water refill station there. Didn’t use the pool but it looked nice. Overall - excellent experience. Enough of one for me to consider booking here again.

Very nice hotel but pricey if you live in the midwest, Price is average for San Francisco. Very clean and updated. Restaurant was also pricey. $50 for two burgers and fries with 2 drinks. Great view of the city from the upper floors. Very close to the cable car line, actually right at the corner of the hotel. Made it very easy to go to China Town and Fisherman's Warf. Hotel is in a great location to many areas of interest.

Stayed for over 2 weeks on a business trip. The location is deal for seeing the city and close enough to business places/financial district. Good and clean rooms - ideal for business and family visits. there is a gas station and whole foods across the road - very useful. within 2 blocks, there are plenty of bars and restaurants.

We stayed here for 4 nights for a conference. The room was clean. Service is not a priority although the staff seem friendly enough. Not a very central location and a bit far from Union Square - roughly a 20min walk away.

Lexcee1, While I'm happy of your nice words on our rooms, I'm sorry to hear that you found our service and location to be a little off. This is definitely not part of our goal of making every guest smile during their visit. Don't worry though as I've already looped in the hotel about your feedback. They will make sure that actions are taken to properly address the things you pointed out. We promise a better experience next time, so I hope you give us another try. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us! Best regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService
