This hotel is in a great location to get to the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and downtown. Check in was perfect. The only issue, they have a parking garage with a maximum height of 5 feet. made it tough to get a full size 4 door truck in the garage. The staff was very accommodating.

We've spent 3 nights here, while arriving to SF. The hotel is very clean and nice. The rooms are comfortable and the king size bed is.. Huge. The location is also good for public transportation, and if you like walking around like us, you can reach alot of nice places by foot.

I grew up in San Francisco (many moons ago) and remain dismayed at what has become of this beautiful city, primarily at the hands of our local politicians. It is a fact of life that the security and safety of visitors needs to be a priority rather than an inconvenience for (some) local hotels. I have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn intermittently since the 1980s. It may not be the newest hotel in town, but the investment in ongoing maintenance has kept things up nicely and I have no complaints. Security has also kept up with the times, and this is my SF hotel of choice. (I'm retired from law enforcement.) The in-room safes are large enough to accommodate a couple of laptops and camera gear -- not the usual half-shoebox size tin can. During the past year I've also noticed significant added security measures to the on-premises parking garage. The neighborhood itself is actually relatively safe for pedestrians, even after dark. I know the City and have tried a lot of the hotels, and this one is where I stay whenever business takes me to SF. Read less

We loved our room! We had a corner suit on the 22nd floor. It was perfect. The staff was amazing. It was close to everything. They gave us a free BTL of champagne for our anniversary. I would go back for sure!
