Standard Holiday Inn chain, but with the added bonus of being in a central location, absolutely perfect for exploring. The reception area is large and airy and we received a lovely warm welcome. We had a view of a wall from our window but we weren't there to sit in our room and found this was the perfect location for...

The room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is split into 2 buildings and our room was not in the main building. There is staff in both buildings except for in the early morning (6:30 am), therefore this was only inconvenient at checkout for us. Our building had a 24 hour Denny's...

My husband and I loved our stay here. Great location, nice rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. We had a nice view of fishermans wharf, we could hear cable car every now and then but that was no bother. Close to everything you need. Denny's downstairs for a midnight snack was awesome too!

This property is certainly better than the average Holiday Inn. The location is great. Some details still leave it in the category of a lower level property - such as not having a proper closet with a door. But the furnishings were better than I normally expect from Holiday Inn. There was work being done in the lobby that made...

As others have stated, the location is great for touring San Francisco. The Wharf is only a few blocks away and the trolley is very close. Great discount on the trolley for seniors but no discount for seniors on the cable cars. The Alcatraz tour boats are very close. The hotel is very clean and all of the staff are...

Pleasantly surprised with this property. Rooms were quiet, clean, well kept and roomy. Bathrooms on the small side but got BIG brownie points for the mirror set up.

This hotel is EXPENSIVE! THEIR BUFFET BREAKFAST SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE! (Their on-sight Denny's is a DUMP and dirty - we ate there and reget it.) Their buffet breakfast in the hotel itself was really expensive, over 30 dollars! In Scandinavia most hotels include breakfast - free breakfast would make this hotel top-notch. Other than that, it is...

This hotel is not AT the Wharf but certainly close enough to walk to the Wharf. Also within walking distance to the cable cars and Alcatraz Cruises. The beds are comfortable but we ended up with two double beds which is a little tight if you like sleeping with your husband. Very clean hotel and very pleased with our stay

Pleasant, very close to Fisherman's Warf. Close to the street cars, cable cars, and bus tour lines. Easy to get from the Embarcadero BART station to the hotel by taxi or cable car. Rooms were nice and the staff was 4 star quality.
