The Intercontinental is pretty new, and pushing the "top hotels" envelope south and west of the usual bubble. Still, it's only two blovks from the cable car turnaround and two more short blocks to Union Square. If you are doing business at Moscone West, it is next door.
My room was GREAT, a corner king bed room. The glass went floor- to- ceiling and the view was amazing. Nice linens, everything worked, top- notch, typical Interconti. Service was to the usual excellent Interconti standard.
Breakfast at the buffet was a little hit- or- miss. The fresh fruits were superb, juicy and sweet. There were two scrambled egg choices, one fluffy and the other runny - nice touch, but no other egg options.. The pastries were only average but the price of the breakfast promised top- shelf. There were three sausage choices but dry and not as tasty as they looked. The coffee was very good, the juice was just like the standard Tropicana.
In sum: lots of hotel choices in the area, this one has to come out high on anyone's list.
There is a Grappa bar which boasts quite a selection. The restaurant boasts a Michelin star - I did not eat there, but even on a weekend it would have been easy to get a table.
