Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Harley68 First-Class Experience
This hotel is an outstanding value and has a location just a few blocks from Fisherman's Warf, the famous cablecars, all double-decker tour buses and everything one would want for a great San Francisco vacation. The hotel and rooms are very nicely decorated and recently renovated. The breakfast area and serving area is extremely nice and has various types of seating and tables to accommodate all types of relaxing, leisure or business dining and is quite large and tastefully decorated. Plenty of food choices, never out of food during our 3-day stay. The staff was very professional, there is a tour desk staffed throughout the day. Our stay could not have been more pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liz and Gregg Great hotel and location
This is an older hotel but the location was perfect. Near bus stops, tours, cable car and the wharf. Walking distance to everything in Fishermans's Wharf. Having breakfast on site was a plus. It saved time and offered many choices such as eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, cereal, muffins, sweet rolls, fruit, pancakes, oatmeal, juice, milk coffee, etc. The rooms were basic but comfortable and quiet. The view was of an empty courtyard though. Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed for 5 nights! We recommend staying here!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonO24 Great place in a beautiful city
We were treated extremely well from the time we walked in the door until we left. The staff we encountered in the hallways were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was fresh, hot items hot and all items kept stocked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daman2014 Great stay at a great location
Located a few blocks from Fishermans Wharf and other attractions worked great for a family stay in the city. The Lobby was open and inviting, the rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. The breakfast room had quite a variety from the grab and go or sit and eat options. We did have the chance to use the fitness center which had a few of the usual apparatus. An overall great location and pleasant stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Travelingirl Lots of money for little return
Yes, this is in walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf. That is this hotel's only redeeming quality. The staff do not seem to care whether you are greeted or attended to, or even if you are there or not. Only valet parking is available. It is outrageously expensive and makes it difficult to access your car if you want to get anything out of it plus the tips every time in and out cost you as well.
My room view was of four walls. I was on the fourth floor and could see nothing but sky and walls. The room was small. Internet was unreliable. It was way to expensive for how you were treated and what you got out of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joaquin M Ideal location
The staff was very accommodating. Joseph, the first person I met at check in was very efficient and best of all, he was accommodating and pleasant.
Pier 39 attractions were within walking distance and included the famed SF cable car.
Bottom lines-- Be happy to be a return guest on my next visit to San Francisco.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michele7707 Spacious comfortable room
I highly recommend the family suite which was spacious and comfortable for our family of 4, including a comfortable sofa bed, refrigerator and microwave. We've stayed in many other hotels in San Francisco and this is definitely our favorite! Great complimentary breakfast! The value of the room with the breakfast is definitely excellent, especially compared to other SF hotels. Parking is a little expensive, but that's usual for San Francisco. All in all a great experience!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaisyDogPrincess Excellent hotel, fantastic location
Excellent hotel with fantastic staff. There was a Muni Bus strike while I was visiting and the conceriege made it easy for me and supplied me several taxi cab phone numbers to use. Front desk was very helpful too, from providing me directions to storing luggage on my last day. Breakfast was great with many items to select from and staff kept the area clean and well stocked. This property is located 2 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and a wonderful "base location" to conduct both business and enjoy everything that San Francisco has to offer!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makamobu Lage gut / Garagengebühr unverhältnismässig
Aufgrund der Lage direkt am Fishermans Wharf wählten wir das Holiday Inn und waren mit der Qualität der Zimmer, Frühstück und dem Service gewohnt Holiday Inn Express erwartungsgemäss zufrieden.
Unbefriedigend und überrissen fanden wir die Parkinggebühr von USD 45 plus Taxen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DavidfromOrangeville Great Stay in San Francisco
The staff are very friendly and very helpful. From check-in through to check out everyone was very helpful. Valet staff were excellent and courteous. Room and hotel were very clean and modern. As a frequent business traveller to San Francisco I have stayed in many of the brand name hotels and by far this is the best experience to date.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GoldenGate Lover Great location
I woke up every day with a backache. There was no fridge or microwave in our room. The view was of an empty courtyard. The best part about our stay at Holiday Inn Express was the location. We walked everywhere we wanted to be. It was close to everything we wanted to see. The breakfast eggs and the gravy were not hot, but there was no microwave to use. The coffee was really hot. I considered how to use it to warm up my breakfast, at least once or twice. We loved the Holiday Inn Express in Nashville Tennessee. This one, not so much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Early May in San Francisco
I'd visited this hotel several times on business travels, and so chose it for a short vacation with my wife. We both think this property's hard to beat . . .
We like to walk, and it's simply a fact that San Francisco's hills make the choice of hotels a big factor: Nob Hill or Union Square hotels can be almost like "islands", cut off from other neighborhoods by steep grades. This location, at the foot of Columbus Avenue, allows an almost-hills-free path thru many interesting and colorful neighborhoods . . .
And it wouldn't be accurate or fair NOT to mention this hotel's splendid staff. All departments from front desk to housekeeping to breakfast staff are charming, friendly, well-trained and highly competent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by safetysusan1 Very nice experience
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the HIE in San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf. The facility was clean and modern. My room was quiet, even with a busload of young people staying nearby. Brandy at the front desk was excellent and very friendly and helpful. Everyone was kind, helpful and friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 23Elizabeth17 awesome stay
We had a great experience due to your front desk employee Brandy. She was just awesome. She mapped out where we should go, what busses to take and where really good restaurants were! Holiday inn has an outstanding employee with Brandy. We would stay here again .. Only issue was the breakfast the eggs were terrible! scrambled and I believe it was to be a small egg only omelet they were cold and hard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dj coco Good hotel but outrageous parking fee
Good hotel but beware parking is 45 a day. You can easily find street parking nearby (though you may have to move car at some point or pay a meter for part of the time). Staff will look at you like you are cheapskate if you inquire about parking options, and only tell you about the 35 dollar option down the street, weirdly they don't think to suggest street parking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dian71 Great stay at Wharf!
From the upgrade to Junior Suite thru the friendly staff and all the staff who were friendly wherever we were in the hotel. We were on the street side (Beach?) so it was a little noisy as traffic started in the morning, but otherwise nice. Breakfast was usual but the same hot every day: sausage, biscuits and gravy. Would have liked to see some bacon on one of our 4 days there. Would recommend this hotel as easy access to transportation to elsewhere in SFO and Wharf.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by steirerbub Perfect location
This hotel is in perfect location to the touristic hotspots (Fisherman' Wharf, cable car...). Friendly and helpful staff (my special thank to Mrs. Ady). Clean rooms.
Breakfast seems to be limited, so be there before the big travel groups come.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisavv Great Hotel for a Family Stay
Great hotel for our family to stay in for 2 nights in San Francisco - fantastic location close to Fisherman's Wharf and bus routes, very handy breakfast included, and very friendly and helpful staff. The free wifi was great quality (IHG member). Only other thing we would have liked is to have a fridge in the room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SR0516 Horribly managed - worst experience as IHG member. BEWARE folks
I am a IHG member and probably stayed at IHG for over 100 nights. Never had to go through so much challenges
I do a reward stay and I was asked if I need some snacks or 500 reward points, which I request for the later. More than a month, bunch of emails and online missing miles check .....I still don't get it
Now the biggest blow, there was 60 used charged to my card account, again 7 emails to IHG, a lot of phone calls to my card company and weeks of painful struggle I get promise to get the money back
Not even a polite apology and if an IHG member goes through this, all the best to all others.
I do nth think the management there really cares!!!!!
