Great place! Quiet and close to ocean!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn to attend a conference in the downtown area. The hotel was conveniently located near a trolley stop. Staying at the hotel, going by the trolley and walking on the wharf was a great experience. It was not terribly expensive. Great value for money.

Hotel comments

Everything was fine (room, bar, lobby coffee bar, location, staff, business center, ample underground parking, etc.). My only negative comment is the challenge of driving a car into or out of the hotel. Because the entrance and exit straddle a diagonal street (Columbus), it was hard to drive in or out whenever there was traffic or pedestrians anywhere near the intersection.

Great Location for seeing the sights!

It was in a great location on Fisherman's Wharf. A bit expensive, but it was an easy walk to many places!

This hotel was great location! Walking distance to fishermans wharf, pier 39 and other tourist areas. The hotel itself was a little worn down but overall good trip.

San Francisco trip

Location was great. Hotel common areas along with my room was vey clean and we'll maintained. Security at the premises was also a plus with staff and key card access for elevators. The work out area and pool area was below average and very small when considering two buildings and number of guests. The HVAC unit in the room was very loud and annoying. Had a hard time sleeping so I had to turn it off during my stay. I also had a leak from the bath tub that entered the next door guest.

Not bad

Decent hotel in a good location. We requested a no-smoking room which we had to sign for, but it seemed to be in a smoking area. had to put pillows on the interconnecting room doors to block out the cigarette smells
