simple place for business. very clean, beautiful view of the city and part of the bay. staff was helpful. good for late checkins, as checkin is 3pm, so make sure to call or check in prior to arrival.
pool was closed for renovations, but that really isn't a complaint since they will be upgrading it which is great. maybe breakfast was kind of expensive, i payed $19 for the buffet when it was just me. so kind of high, $15 would have been more reasonable given the limited choice in food.
One of the best business travel experiences ever
Front desk was extremely helpful. I needed to cancel my reservation to relocate closer to the hospital where my family member was undergoing surgery for a brain tumor. However, I had booked the room through Expedia. The manager assured me that the hotel would not charge a cancellation fee, given that Expedia advertises no cancellation fees except as subject to the hotel. He was willing to be put on the phone with Expedia to explain the waiver. While on the phone with Expedia, I was put on hold for 30 minutes, then reprimanded by the Expedia representative that I would be charged a cancellation fee of the first night's stay. She refused to let me speak to the manager, and also refused to speak to the hotel manager who had happily obliged to discuss the matter with her. I was continually placed on hold, only to have her come back to the phone to reprimand me. I am grateful to the hotel manager for his hospitality which was in stark contrast to my telephone encounter with Expedia.
Expedia and the false advertising of no cancellation fees, as well as the rude telephone spokesperson.
Convenient location especially the cable car stop adjacent to the hotel.
Room temp was difficult to manage.
Friendly Staf, clean rooms. City c
Highly expensive parking!!!
Very good value. Nice looking and simple hotel for a very reasonable rate. Just what I was looking for. Nice breakfast and good views. Took my wife and baby with me on a business conference trip. Room worked well for the baby with enough space for the crib provided unlike other hotels I saw. Overall very solid hotel.
Location was not the best but I knew that going in. Some of the surrounding streets were a little sketchy at night. Not a big deal for me but maybe for some others. Parking pricey at $45 a night but all hotels in SF are about this expensive.
the staff were the best. Baker on reception was a great help
nothing to add
well the first day i opened my curtains and had a panoramic view of the bay. it was an absolutely georgous view of the city and bay, it could not have been better.
The room service was good and the beds were comfy
We booked it becuase of the pool but when we got there we found the pool was closed for the whole of our stay. The location wasn't particularly good for sightseeing.
The room itself as well as the bathroom were very spacious and comfortable, certainly value for money (although a bit old-fasioned styled).
The staff at the hotel was very friendly, but not able to check previous charges on the credit card (already confirmed by my bank), "the system is down now" was the suspicious answer I got. This is probably just holiday inn's policy and may have nothing to do with the staff's skills, who were always very helpfull. The parking is extremely expensive compared to the public parkings around.
Nothing in particular.
If you reserve with Booking they give you the room next to the elevator which is very noisy during all the day. The staff is not very professional; I asked to change the room and they told me that in that day the were complete and the move to the other room was possible only the day after. These was completely false because a friend of mine reserved a room for the same day 30 min. after. Parking very expensive, in the nearby street you can find easy parking for the half price. The zone is not very beautiful, the only nice thing is the cable car stop next to the exit.
The rooms are old. They smelled of Clorox. Shower was ancient. The Breakfast had no selection and was very poor value. Dining room staff were very disinterested.
This hotel location is perfect, middle of van ness avenue, close to everything downtown, and the Cable Car stops stops just one block from here. The hotel is clean and professional. Very good rate on booking.com, so.. Je recommende vivement!
The only small thing is that the windows let some noise from the Van Ness avenue go through the room. But we are downtown, so.. That's not a big issue. Everything else really good quality for the price.
The staff was quite courteous.
The proper information about the transportation.
The location,and staff was very friendly.
I did not like that the sports bar, Interlude, did not open until 4:00pm on Sunday! Football starts at 10:00am! We wanted to have lunch and watch the game for a while. We were 2 woman traveling together and we felt more comfortable at the hotel than going to the pub up the street. More woman are into football now. We need a respectable place to watch it when we are not home.
Good location, we walked to theatre, dinner and breakfast, clean room, quiet, comfortable
parking fee (self park) of $36 plus tax
