Most expensive Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at - in the world! But I guess SFO is know for that.
Location is great, rooms are a little dated, but still comfortable. Only had a one night stay and did not use any of the other facilities of the hotel.

On might think that a brand like Holiday Inn can get by on it's history. Maybe... but our experience here was perfect. The location was great and the staff was very friendly from the moment we checked in until the final walk out the door. The rates are reasonable for SF and the room was remodeled and well appointed. I imagine you can pay more for the location but you won't get a lot more. Thanks Holiday Inn.

Room Tip: We were by the pool. Easy walk to the Lobby and quiet.

Great hotel in a fab location. Staff were a little brusque. Not the greatest views from the rooms but still a pleasant stay. Close to all local amenities, 10 mins away from Fishermans wharf & lots of bars & restaurants

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the road....only chance of any sort of view

I usually stay at the harbor court hotel in the financial district, but wasn't able to get a room there, since there were big conventions going on this weekend. I booked this room in January and this was the the least expensive room I could get, at $274!

The staff was excellent! Alan was very helpful at check in, and the early morning bellman, sorry I didn't get his name, was also helpful. The bellman secured a ride for me to the financial district.

There were slashes in some of the curtains and a butter knife on the floor of the hallway that was not removed during my stay.

I had room 302. It was a corner unit with a view of the Denny's and holiday inn signs and a view of coit tower. It was pretty noisy, from street traffic-some guy named bob thought he was lost and I could hear him talking about it. I wake up early and heard a protest at the Hyatt up the street at 7am on a a Saturday morning.

I probably would not choose to stay here again, even though there are quite a few things to do at pier 39, the wharf and the neighborhood in general.

The room was somewhat large for San Francisco.

The Holiday Inn is in a perfect position to visited Fishermans Wharf and San Francisco. The staff were exceptional just went above and beyond to be helpful and very friendly, the rooms are a little dated but still clean and comfortable. If possible I would suggest asking for a quiet room as the street noise is a little loud (we did have a choice and chose the view which was a mistake). Overall a great place to stay.
