Rooms were ok and the lobby is really nice with a nice bar. Fitness room was a joke nearly every bit of equipment not working properly. Free breakfast would have been good as I have come to expect from holiday inn.

Staff was friendly, bar was great, and so close to the San Francisco Airport. Rooms were clean, a really wide TV, and a very comfortable bed. All for under $100! It is also a cheap place to stay during Dream Force as you can take the BART into town and save a ton of money.

We stayed here for 2 nights in early November; it is very convenient if using the airport. We had come up HWY 1 from Monterey and had a slight problem navigating in, but from the 101 it was easy to find. Check-in was a snap, was recognized as a Platinum member and received a lovely goodie bag, the young lady...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The staff was friendly and the room decor was nice, although the drapes don't close. The only thing standing between you and a possible peeping tom is a thin, white curtain which is obviously see-through. I'm not sure who thought that one up, but I think they need to reconsider. The bed...

Stayed for two nights for a business trip and found this hotel to be just average. The staff was friendly and the room was spacious, but the internet was slow and the hotel is in need of some remodeling updates. Also the price was too high for the value, but San Fran prices always seem too high for me.

Based on reviews, sounds like the hotel has updated some rooms, but not others. I stayed in room 504 which was spacious and nicely furnished and appeared to be recently remodeled. I had a nonsmoking king room which included a desk, dresser, large sofa, good bedside lighting, HD tv with HBO, and free internet. Just steps from the San Francisco...

The hotel is very close to the airport. It has a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes, but not all night long. It was my own mistake for not checking more carefully when I booked a room, as I was shocked that they charge for over night parking. Therefore I returned my rental car a day early to avoid the...

Spent our final two nights in San Francisco here. Our room was great and very quiet for sleeping. Unfortunately during our first night, someone in a neighboring room was smoking in their bathroom (our whole floor was non-smoking) and must have been running their exhaust fan, which pulled the smoke into our room. Because it was so awful we had...
