“Very Good Value and Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

This is my second time staying at the Holiday Inn at Fisherman's Wharf. I was here for a conference and found the hotel to be a very good value. Our room was comfortable and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

I did note that there is a different between the business floor and the other rooms in the hotel; the business floor has microwave, mini refrigerator and seems to be a bit more spacious. The other rooms are still very comfortable.

The only negative note is the Bristol Bar & Grill Restaurant. It has a breakfast buffet and does not serve lunch. We were disappointed with the one dinner we had there. Service was very friendly, but the chef was slow and the meal not very good. However, there are plenty of great places to eat on Fisherman's Wharf and throughout San Francisco.

Room Tip: If you can, go with the business floor, especially if you are staying for business.

Great Hotel. Fantastic loacation...So close to all main attractions, The Hotel has a great retaurant but we like going out & eating when & where we like. There is a pub called the Fidlers Green oposite. Fantastic Breakfast & it was so cheep.
Rooms were very clean & tidy. Staff were very helpful & friendley.
Would stay there again if we were to Return to Sanfrancisco.

I arrived by taxi with my teenager about 1:30AM I was given a room at the Beach Street location and given directions on how to walk the 2 blocks to get there! I was shocked that they would expect me and my teenager to walk that far at that time of night, while carrying our luggage. I complained and the clerk summoned a well meaning, but elderly security guard to escort us. The security guard retrieved a luggage cart to help transport our bags, but was hardly equipped to provide any protection while we walked two blocks in the middle of the night. The temparture was cold, thank goodness it wasn't raining. Thank goodness we don't have mobility issues and could walk the distance. I'm appalled that they did not provide a shuttle or some transportation to the other location and am no longer a Holiday Inn customer.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter if you know in advance you will be in the Beach Street location, if you arrive...

Dear Annie143Florida,

Thank you so much for your recent comments. I am trying to understand what happen and why you would come to this location if your hotel was on Beach street. Never the less I am glad that our security guard was able to assist you. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.

Great location! Right by Fishermans Wharf, trolley, Ghiradelli, Alcatraz cruises, etc. had a room with a view thanks to Joseph at check in...it was awesome. We were in the 2nd building, which was great, newly remodeled. Beds and pillows were excellent. If u r a light sleeper a room overlooking the Beach street will be pretty noisy in the am. The trolleys start about 5am..so just FYI. But would definitely stay here again. No free breakfast at this one, but a great Denny's right in the lobby.
