A very clean room, no problems with anything, great gym and friendly staff. Once we arrived out of the BART station we were on edge with all the homeless, drugged up people and deals that were going on. We went out that night and I freaked myself out from reading the reviews. It is a pretty sketchy area, but as...

Clean, inviting guest rooms and helpful, friendly staff support is Holiday Inn Civic Center's specialty and we are delighted they were a positive aspect of your stay. The neighborhood is very diverse and urban, but we are disappointed to hear your experience off property was less than pleasant. There are many projects currently in motion to bring forth a new...

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel room is very clean and comfortable. There are Starbucks, Burger King, Supermarket just around the corner. Walking about 20 minutes to Union Square. Very convenient location. Just need to watch out when traveling at night as the neighborhood can be a bit rough.

The good points are very good - very clean, nice bed and pillows, very good T.V. though only about 30 channels. Close to BART & MUNI Civic Center Station. Dicey neighborhood but just walk fast. Walgreens and CVS, fast food, Wells Fargo ATM and so on within a block or so. HOWEVER - the bad points are still bad months...

The rooms are wonderful and the staff is great. However, the area east of the hotel is very drug ridden for a couple of blocks. If you head west and north towards the civic center the area is fine. Great value for SF, but as a female, I would pay more to stay in a safer neighborhood.

The hotel is in close to the UN and civic center as the name implies. It is looking dates on the outside and showing on the inside as well on the fixtures.

We are dismayed that there was confusion with the type of guest room you intended to book with our hotel. Upon looking further into the details of your reservation, when you booked through an external party, you reserved an “accessible” room. This term refers to a handicapped-accessible guest room. We understand sometimes when booking a stay outside of our IHG...

Firstly I want to say that the staff at the hotel were excellent. It's not really their fault that the hotel isn't in a good location. Whilst it is close to Moscone (about 4 blocks) it is not in the best of San Francisco areas. Nothing harmful or threatening but the homeless guys are pretty aggressive with their requests for...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
