Holiday Inn Express - Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

The hotel

In the middle of Fisherman's Wharf, you'll find yourself in a great spot, close to PIER 39 and Ghirardelli Square. The famous cable car turnaround is just outside too, so you can easily get to other neighbourhoods. There's a smart, maritime theme throughout the hotel making it a warm, relaxing respite from the city. And an American breakfast will fire you up for the day. Why not head over to the notorious ex-prison Alcatraz, wander around vibrant Chinatown or take a walk down to the Golden Gate Bridge.

It has been a crazy morning for our family. Our flight was at 7:15am on Sunday morning and I did not pre arrange the transportation thinking we could easily catch a Uber ride to the airport. I was wrong! Not only did the Uber hike up the price to almost $100, but they did not accept the ride for the morning. As calling for an Uber did not work, I asked for help to Andre at the front desk. He really went above and beyond helping us right away by calling a taxi ride making sure someone will arrive shortly. After realizing the car won’t arrive in time, he cancelled it and called the Town Car service which provides a ride at a flat rate of $65. Not only that, Andre asked the security gentleman to look out for a taxi outside the lobby in the cold morning. We ended up arriving at the airport 15min before the departure. And with the help of TSA, we arrived at the gate just in time. Much appreciated and BIG thanks to Andre for all his help in the morning!! If it wasn’t for him, we would have missed the flight and be stuck at the airport for hours waiting for the next one. As for the hotel stay, it was a perfect place to stay if you’re visiting SF. We did a Big Bus and Alcatraz tour which were all within the walking distance from the hotel! Although I didn’t expect anything from it, I had sent an email to the hotel prior to our stay that we were celebrating a birthday. And to our surprise, GM upgraded our room to a suite! The room was spotless, big, and comfortable. Everything was perfect, and it met our needs. I honestly did not expect such nice accommodation and service(Andre!). This is definitely not an ordinary holiday inn express that I know. I would definitely choose this hotel over other luxurious hotels in downtown due to its location and service next time. Lastly, do NOT rely on Uber for your airport transportation in SF. Prearrange it with Andre at the front lobby :-) Read less

Breakfast was more than enough for us each day. Coffee all day. Great staff. Read less

We stayed two nights in this hotel, and appreciated the standardized service, the friendly welcome, good sized room, "you-know-what-you-get-breakfast" and included parking. Close to Fisherman's Wharf and other SF attractions.

We spend two nights last week at this location. We could walk to Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, etc. Our room had two queen beds. I always like it when there is a sink and counter in the room outside the bathroom. The reason I gave this location a five is because of the friendly and helpful people at the front desk.

Brandy has been with IHG 16 years and was extremely helpful as were Joseph and the other lady who had a name I do not remember. I do hope to return! Read less

Had a great 5 night stay in the holiday inn suites at fisherman’s wharf. We were traveling with 2 adults and 3 teens and prefer not to spend the extra money on 2 hotel rooms and this suite with 2 California kings and sofa bed was perfect and spacious. Great breakfast free in am for 3 hours which saved us having to eat breakfast out each day. I think the only down side was the lack of transportation from Oakland airport but this was not the problem with hotel. Very close to many sights, rented bikes a block away to bike over bridge, took bus to golden gate park, walked to 2 different cable car lines , walk to pier 39, Lombard street and coit tower. Hope to return soon! Read less
