Very solid hotel with nice rooms, great staff, clean lobby & facilities, and pretty good location (with eating options right outside the door and nitelife a nice walk away). Great location.

Decent location. Staff could have been more friendly but pleased with overall stay. I would stay here again. Only thing hotel seemed to lack in amenities is a microwave in the rooms but other than that.. great view.. comfortable beds, view and safe hotel.

This hotel is fairly nice and is a tall building with a nice swimming pool. the location of the hotel is good, but not the best as it is a 10 minute bus ride to the nearest subway stattion, however, the busess run very freqnetly on vanness avenue where the hotel is located on. The hotel is also right next to the california cable car line, which is under renovation at the moment for a few months, so if u want to stay near a cable car line that actually runs, i recomend u book something near union square. My only issus with this hotel was that the curtains did not make the room completely dark, as i tend to sleep during the day, i find that there was too much light in the room with the curtain fully closed. Maybe the curtains need to be thicker. The hotel building itself is very nice, and the room and the bed are above average for most holiday inn with the exception of the curtains....I also liked that there was a fridge in the room.

The Hotel has a very small fitness room, an okay restaurant and good view. It is on a bus route that gets you to most locations quickly. The staff was helpful - if not very competent.

We booked and paid a little extra for a corner room, and on check in asked for a room on an upper floor. It was Sunday to Tuesday so maybe there were plenty of rooms available...anyway..the room (2200) on the 22nd floor, had the most wonderful panoramic view of San Francisco..you could lie in bed looking out on two sides of the room, through huge windows, at the whole of SF. The room was very clean, with a huge comfortable bed, a fridge, flat TV, reasonable bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Public transport in SF is excellent and the hotel's location, although not in the very centre of town, is near enough, and located on Van Ness Ave and California, which have frequent buses, meant an easy bus ride to Fisherman's Wharf and downtown. It was reasonably priced. I don't understand British people complaining about only coffee sachets in the room and not 'tea'. This is trivial..there are small grocery stores on Polk St just behind the hotel.The only thing was the business centre was a bit small, with only one computer working at the time and the very small health club has hardly any equipment in it....but there was a great outdoor swimming pool with more views of SF. It was an enjoyable stay.

Stayed for 4 nights, great location, but its the small things that make or break a stay, and as a Brit, not having a kettle or to have any tea bags, I had to continually beg for them, and when \I requested a mug in the bedroom instead of paper beakers I was told by reception staff this was not possible. However more helpful dining room staff were able to supply them.
