We went there to see the musical Wicked, and had a great time. Staff was courteous and helpful. It ranks up there with the other trips to SF.

The Good and the Bad

The hotel was noisy at night the majority of the 4 nights we stayed. There were not enough plug ins for electronic items. We had a housekeeping issue and none of the housekeeping persons sent to our room spoke English well enough to be of assistance. The location is great for going to the wharf and for access to public transportation.

Location location

Been there multiple times because of the location. Near shopping and multiple public transit spots for San Francisco (Muni buses or trolleys or Bart). This latest time, they now have free internet, which is a plus.

Girls overnight out

The Holiday Inn staff were very helpful and hospitable. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable to sleep in. We loved the location of the hotel, it was 2 blocks from the Wharf and walking distance to North Beach and a trolley ride to Market St. and China Town. I would definitely come back and stay here again.

We would suggest crossing the street and having breakfast at Paragimos. They have the best waffles in the city and great coffee.

A place to sleep

We wanted to stay in a place that was close to the action, and it was. It was right on the F line so a trolley could pick you up and bring you to most of the attractions you wanted to see. The one thing that wasn't explained well was that the Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf is in two building. If you are staying at the Beach St. building, after you check in you have to walk a block to get to your room. Also the Beach st. location does not have a pool. If you have any questions talk to the Concierge, Rhoda. She was a great help, and had great advise on where to go and what to do! Also remember to bring clothes for all kinds of weather.

Great Getaway for couples

I have absolutely zero complaints, the staff was friendly, they let us check in over 3 hours early, the room was clean and roomy, the beds really comfortable, the bathrooms spotless, clean towels etc. We walked almost the entire time we were there, so convenient to all the places we wanted to see. We took a bus tour of San Fran, visited Alcatraz, ate great food and just walked and looked around.
