    Comfy beds, byo cleaning products....

    We were only here one night while a loved one was in surgery. The hotel was very close to the hospital. The whole place felt very secure and the check in process was easy. I was excited to visit the pool, unfortunately they do reservation only and since we were only here one night we were not able to make a reservation. It would have been nice to have mentioned this on their website so someone only staying one night would be able to plan ahead. The room was nice with super comfy beds and pillows. The surfaces were a little sticky and there was clearly residue on the window from where someone had presses their forehead to see out the window...if the windows aren't being cleaned, what else is being skipped...? Overall it was a nice place and conveniently located for our needs.

    The room had a musty smell when you first walk in. Could not use the pool or fitness room without reservation and that was not disclosed on hotels.com so the kids and I couldn’t take advantage of swimming. Overall not bad, but not the greatest.

    Fantastic accommodations - 5 stars

    Amazing views of San Francisco! Very clean. We’ll maintain. Great location. Restaurants near by. One should consider this place before others. This is a Holiday Inn to stay at.

    Unpleasant welcome

    When first checking in the gentlemen was very rude. No hello, welcome..nothing. Before getting our room keys I asked if it was possible to get a higher room because we got a room on the corner to see the bay view. He replied "there is no bay view we are in the middle of the city" very rude like I had not realized that (I knew it wasnt going to be a up close bay view). I was confused as because I paid more $$ to have that view and upon going up to the room we could BARELY see the bay. Maybe it was because we were on floor 11 of 23 (I believe). However, my recommendation is to not spend more $$ for a bay view room when all you get is the city view. Other than the incredibly rude worker that checked us in the hotel our stay was ok. One plus is I thought the bed was very comfy!

    Wish we had more time here!

    This was our final night of a hiking trip to Yosemite before flight out of San Francisco and we wanted to spend a bit of time in the city. I wish we had stayed another night! Although it may be a further walk than some may wish to take we did walk to Fisherman's Wharf and surrounding areas even returning after sundown. We felt safe and really enjoyed our stay.

    Parking not included on hotel price

    I was not happy that I was charged $45.00 for overnight parking. Parking not included in hotel price. Happy the pool was open but need a reservation.
