My 10-year-old daughter and I stayed at the Intercontinental for a weekend in October to celebrate my 40th birthday. I booked a 1-bd king suite (mama needs her space, especially for her birthday). But it must be stated that the room rates for a basic hotel room are surprisingly reasonable, especially considering the location/quality of this property.
I was most impressed by the fact that while this is clearly a sleek, business-friendly and -focused hotel, every employee I encountered was welcoming and personable. My daughter and I felt very much at home and even cozy throughout our stay.
The hotel itself is very sleek and sumptuous, from the lobby bar down to the hallways on each floor. Our room (somehow we lucked out and got upgraded to a suite on the 31st floor with two balconies and a panoramic view of the bay and city) was spacious and so comfortable. Lovely bathroom, soft bed linens, everything you'd expect from a hotel of this caliber.
Room service was fast and the food was delicious (we ordered dinner and breakfast). The location of this hotel is very convenient if you want to do some shopping in Union Square or check out Yerba Buena Center or MOMA SF.
This has become my new go-to for an SF hotel, and I plan on recommending it to everyone I know looking to visit the city. Can't wait to return!More
