Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Dude322 Overpriced but acceptable
You're going to pay if you're going to stay in Fishermans Wharf. So there's no surprise the cost is high. You can walk to any Wharf destination. And that's the best thing about the hotel. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, but little else was remarkable.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Alps2013 Great Location! Undiscovered GEM!
San Francisco is an overpriced mecca. That said, this hotel and the location are an undiscovered oasis in the midst of obscenely overpriced offerings. The room was QUIET...CLEAN...and the service at front desk terrific. Exactly what you would expect from a six star hotel in the Financial District of San Francisco. But here you are away from all the glitz and greedy prices! Would I come here again? You bet! When you give this place your business you are making a statement: you are showing you have brains to discern between value and great service vs. outrageous charges and slick marketing. You decide what works for you. Me? I'll come back here in a Manhattan Minute.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by golf97 Nice experience & good location
Good location and convenient to Wharf and cable cars. Excellent breakfast as advertised. Did not like barking dog down the hall from our room. Also dog (not service dog) in breakfast dining area. One elevator down throughout our stay caused log jams and delays.

The HI Express was GREAT. The staff was nice and helpful. I stayed in a Family Suite and the two beds were a little small and the sofa bed was not comfortable at all but the room was a great. It had a bar area with sink and fridge. I got a good price for the location. I was more concerned with the staff and cleanliness of the hotel then the amount of sleep.
First I went to the wrong hotel.
I went next door to the holiday inn hotel and they were rude and the unfriendly... then they told me that I was at the wrong hotel. THANK GOD because they looked unhappy. When I got to the correct hotel, the Holiday Inn Express I was so happy because I was greeted with such joyfulness.
Recommend the HI EXPRESS, not the regular holiday inn next door.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by SweetPea28 Great service and close to so many places to visit.
We were pleased with the hotel and the area which was walking distance to so many attractions. It was good to have a breakfast available in the hotel so as to not have to walk to get breakfast. Thank you!

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by cje49 Great location, awful bed.
My husband and I stayed four nights. The location was great; close to the city tours and within walking distance to all the attractions such as the cable cars, Ghirardelli Square, restaurants, and the piers. Unfortunately, I have nothing good to say about the beds. They were hard as rock. We tossed and turned all night, got little sleep and woke up to extremely sore backs each morning. This alone will be the reason we won't stay at this location.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by McG1067 Great location, terrible staff
Location was great but the staff left much to be desired. Parking was 50$+ a night, so we opted to park offsite for less...when we stopped to change into warmer clothes mid-day, there was no street parking available and we asked to leave the car (with the keys) at the front while we ran upstairs to change. We were greeted with indignant sneers. Not cool. We also had our phone blinking constantly, and when I asked the front desk to turn it off (It was a message from them welcoming us) they said that they would. They did not. In addition to a blinking red light, the phone rang from the front desk at 3am each night. We were already on east-coast time, so this was horrible...and no one likes to be woken out of a dead sleep to the shrill sound of a phone ringing. When we asked for it to be stopped, we were informed that the "Phone technician" would not be in until Monday. Ridiculous. The location was great, but next time, I would stay at another hotel in the area. Also, don't be one second late for breakfast...they take the coffee away and will not give you any...in fact, our response when we asked was a snotty 'you should have been here earlier'. I would have been, but I was woken up in the middle of the night and my schedule was a little off.

The staff was excellent. Had a problem with the a/c in our suite and we were moved to another suite in record time. They moved everything for us while we were out. Location was the best. Close to everything.

I've stayed here before and it has a great locations to do all things on Fisherman's Wharf. Very clean room - our lady who looked after our room did an exceptional job for us.
My only complaint is there is no fridge. This is the only hotel room I have been in in years without one. Would be nice to be able to have a fridge, especially for a week's stay. BTW - I could have ordered one up - for $20 a day more. Most other hotels this is a freebee.
WHile I am a member of IHG Reward Club - I did not get credit for 7 nights stay as I booked it thru my travel agent-at least that is what I was told. Seemed very strange.
Breakfast seating area is too small - very busy. We twice just grabbed a banana and left.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Volcano Good location, clean and good breakfast.
The hotel was located in a good location. It was clean and they provided a good breakfast.
The bad was they charge $45.00 parking per day and additional taxes. You also had to tip the parking attendant on top of all of this every time they got your car.

Great location, blocks from Fishermans Wharf. This hotel fit the bill for us. We did not rent a car so parking fees were not an issue. Were able to walk to the wharf and took the open air bus tour. Buffet breakfast was more than adequate and seating was available , if sometimes a little crowded. Front desk was knowledgeable about area and assisted us on a few occasions.

The hotel is located minutes from Fisherman's Warf. The room was nicely appointed and competively priced. Breakfast was caotic and I strongly suggest choosing less busy times. This hotel was recommended to me and I was not disappointed and would definitely choose to stay here in the future. The staff were gracious and helped me feel welcome!

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by PapPap Really well located, staff was helpful
About two blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, about a half block from On and Off bus stop, about two blocks from cable car turnaround. Parking is hideously expensive, but not much different whether you park at hotel $45 or in a surrounding lot. Parking is somewhat less expensive at Ross store's underground lot two blocks back from motel.
We first were put in a room on the second floor, but were moved to a very quiet room on the fourth floor when I asked. Staff was very cordial. Would stay again.

Paid for a mini suite and was disappointed. It is the same as most all Holiday Inn rooms I have stayed in before except it had a couch instead of chairs. Would not spend the difference in cost again. Location was great.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Rotorguy Small room , no view
Small room, no refrigerator, no microwave, no view. Typical Holiday Inn Breakfast. If you had one, you've had them all. Take my advice, go next door to the Hollywood Cafe for the best breakfast in San Francisco. Attached picture was my view. Pros... great location, near everything. Easy walk to the Fisherman's Wharf.

The parking situation is one of the worst things I have come across, we should of been informed that there would be a fee for parking, really it was highway robbery 51 dollars and change for parking a motorcycle over night is just plain wrong, plus they would not shuttle us to the Giants ballpark which I think is crazy.
Great rooms, need to fix the parking situation make it free for the people who stay there.

Loved the hotel and convenience at Fisherman's Wharf, SF. Everything was great. The only thing was very crowded breakfast in the morning and not enough seating. I prefer the Holiday Inn brand when I travel because I expect the same level of service every time.

We are senior citizens and enjoyed a week at the Holiday Inn Express. We felt safe in the hotel and in the area. The hotel was close to the wharf and to transportation. The room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious. We would stay here again.

Rated 1,0 out of 5,0 by Cis084 I will plan more for my next trip to San Francisco
The room was tiny and definitely NOT worth the price! Although the hotel is conveniently located in downtown and allows adequate access to public transportation, the staff does not necessarily know what to tell you about getting around in the city. The staff was helpful when we checked out and requested that they store our bags while we completed our sightseeing. The parking is OUTRAGEOUS! $45 to park your car for a night and you MUST valet park. At $45, I refused to tip!!! I will not return to this property and am seriously considering not returning to Holiday Inn properties at all in the future.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Krizzle Wonderful experience
We stayed at the HIE FW Oct 4-7, 2013. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were cozy (my only complaint being the televisions are extremely dated), the hotel was always clean, it is 2 blocks from the Bay and not crazy expensive. I only had one not so friendly encounter with a front desk person when we were checking out, but I have high standards as I'm from Texas and we go out of our way to make sure the customer is always happy.
I highly recommend this hotel!

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by JJIme10 Hotel Beds
I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, and every morning, I'd wake up with severe neck pain, in some cases, it would take me 5-10 minutes to get out of bed. With that said, I'm guessing it's the pillows at the hotel. I have never had a problem at any hotel, regardless of the hotels rating, but for whatever reasons, this hotel did me in. It was very uncomfortable and makes me not want to return to the hotel, if I have a choice. I do travel 50% of the year and am not a picky traveller, in fact, I sleep on 6 hour plane rides with no problem!
The front desk was awesome, super friendly and very attentive. That's definitely a perk to this place.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by MarkVacation Great Place to stay when visiting Fishermans Wharf
This was our second family visit (7 people - 2 rooms) to San Francisco staying in the Fisherman's Wharf area. We were in town on a family vacation and also to see a 49'ers game. Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express added to the enjoyment of the trip. Our rooms were ready when we arrived, they were clean and situated next to each other which was a plus for us. The front desk staff was friendly and when we called for extra pillows and blankets for the room, they arrived within 10 minutes. The night before checkout we asked front desk if they could secure two cabs for us in the morning (5 am departure), they actually found us a limo for the same price as the cabs. Great staff, clean rooms, nice complimentary breakfast, walking distance to the Wharf, what more can you ask for. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.
