Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alaska2014 Good location to stay if boarding a cruise
The service was nice. The room was clean and comfy.
The only thing I would recommend offering free coffee and breakfast in the morning as other hotels offer this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovetotravel806 Convenient to public transportation
My sister, great nephew, and I stayed six nights in June 2014. We were on the business floor in the main building , so we had a microwave and refrigerator. We did notice some people who stayed in the wharf building had to take their luggage quite a distance to the wharf building We were able to print out our boarding passes on the computers provided on our floor. The bell captain was quite helpful in giving us directions concerning MUNI, the public transportation. Some bus stops were across the street in front of the Marriott, and the bus to the wharves was around the corner and about two blocks down. The room was recently renovated and had numerous outlets for electronic devices. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a humming noise at night that appeared to come from air conditioners I could see on a roof outside the window, but otherwise there was no noise--we heard no noise from other people. Free wifi was provided, but one night I could not get wifi, and another night my sister was unable to get online. The elevators were fast. Altogether, we had a good experience, and I would stay there again. We did not eat in the restaurant because the prices were more than I wanted to pay. On the first night we walked a couple of blocks to Trader Joe's and Safeway to get snacks and breakfast items. We took tours with both Incredible Adventures and Extranomical, and both picked up at the hotel. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel at a cost of about $60 including tip; we took the limosine service that the hotel recommended going back to the airport and were pleased with that, also. The cost was $55 plus tip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ann 5775 L Good for Downtown but the best
We attempted to check-in early to make sure we had a quiet room; the desk said our room was reserved to face away from the traffic but when we finally arrived AFTER a long day where we had to change at a different hotel for an afternoon wedding at Fort Mason we had a street side noisy room. The front desk comp'd our parking fee because I insisted I would have driven back to Burlingame Doubletree had I known we would be in noisy room.
If you have to be downtown or want to be next to Fisherman's Wharf you cannot get closer. But we only stayed here for the extra $ because we thought we would be out very late at the nearby wedding. Turns out we did not stay late and may not have needed to spend so much to be in the city. Worked out okay as we were closer to pick up our dog from Barks By the Bay--and Kirk who was dog sitting for us!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GRS1950 Ideally placed hotel for a short break to San Francisco
This hotel is only 5 minutes walk from Fishermans Wharf and it's not much further to Pier 39 and all the attractions and also all of the tour-bus stops.
Rooms are clean and roomy and although the restaurant is a Dennys you get a great breakfast to start your day here.

Great location. Bit noisy during the night outside as they cleaned the streets every night between 2am and 6am! Close to Fishermans wharf and easy to get into town

My sister and I stayed twice at the Holiday Inn at Fisherman's Wharf in June. Both times our rooms were immaculate! Service was great - from the front desk to the cleaning crew and the dining staff. This hotel is a wonderful location from which to walk to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. We were within a couple blocks of numerous restaurants, the Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus line and the cable cars. Several times we had breakfast and dinner right in the hotel. Although the selection is small, everything we ordered was delicious. I'd go back there in a minute!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by retiredTA Good for some purposes
The hotel was clean and well maintained on the inside. The staff was friendly. They didn't quite take into consideration that those driving in may not know how their parking works and the parking spaces were not all the same size. I had to drive around and wait for someone to leave because the three spaces left would not fit a minivan.
The outside of the hotel wasn't anything special and the patio wasn't in great shape.
There are hotels much closer to Fisherman's wharf, including a pretty nice looking Holiday Inn Express that are priced about the same.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UCLAMO Noisy poor value
Stayed on the 5th floor and we could make out conversations on the street, the traffic noise is terrible I checked the windows several time thinking they were open. The location is good but not worth the price, the rooms are very dated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kfuller Great hotel in the heart of fishermans wharf
Great hotel in the fisherman's wharf district.
Check in was a breeze considering the computers where all down.
Rooms where cleaner than some 5star hotels. Wonderful staff who even provided us with a complimentary crib for our baby. Bed was super comfortable, they even use proper inner duvets, not just a thick blankets wrapped in sheets like many of their competitors use.
We will defiantly stay here again.

This was our 2nd stay at the San Francisco-Fisherman's Wharf and I cant wait to go back again. So close to everything you can walk to all the best restaurant's and shopping and then back to the comfy bed at the Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patty Ann Great service and convience of location
Mary, at front desk was most accommodating in finding us adjoining rooms when we checked in early.
Two gals left items in the room and lost and found had them both !! Maria (?) was most helpful in finding and returning the items to my home. I wish you had used FedEx GROUND instead of the FedEx saver. The items went to Memphis and then stayed 2 days at a distribution point 30 miles away from my home and my college roommates left before they were delivered to my home which is only 125 miles form San Francisco. It was a shame that they had to sit in Rocklin all that time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SSPort14 Great Location
My son and I stayed at this location on our very first visit to San Francisco. It is in a wonderful location to Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge, etc. We could walk out of the hotel and hit all kinds of tourist attractions. There was construction right under our window in the alley all day, starting fairly early. But we were too busy enjoying the area to have it bother us very much. The staff was very helpful to direct us to where we needed to go. The underground parking was nice. I would stay here again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Penny Dreadful Comfortable and convenient
We would have liked a greater selection of dishes on the restaurant menu, it seemed to be very limited and the usual American unhealthy variety! We ate there once only, preferring to take our evening meal somewhere else.
On the positive side, we had transferred from the Holiday Inn Express and were impressed and grateful for our luggage being brought from that location very promptly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IntrepidwDog Recommend with caveat
My visit started off on the wrong foot b/c after I made my way all of the way to room 404, then the card didn't work. (I had made a point of holding it in my hand so there was no way my phone caused the problem.) Front desk apologized, but it was an annoyance after a long flight and schlep into town from SFO.
Though I was upgraded to the "IHG Rewards" floor, I did not see any advantage to being there.
The room was spacious. The bed was a little hard/lumpy. Linens clean and nice. No coffee/tea/water in room which I found unusual, though I rarely use that set-up anyway. TV felt a little small for the size of the room. I appreciated that there were real wooden hangers (5-7) that one could easily remove from the rod.
The bathroom was clean, shower was hot and good pressure. Not enough counter space and poorly positioned toilet tissue roll--it got wet with use of the sink.
Aside from check-in, I had no interactions with the service staff. Two night stay, so I passed on housekeeping since I wanted to come and go without worrying about having to wait for housekeeping to finish their work.
In summary, for the price point, it was an fine/adequate experience. However, I've stayed at other facilities in the immediate area which cost a little more (~$30-$45 more per night), but were a lot nicer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrendaAW Great location for conference in San Francisco
I have managed conferences for my association for many years. Most times the hotel staff and service is the weak link in executing our conference. The staff here excelled at timely communication, quick response to our onsite needs, setups always on time and as requested, food of good quality and presentation, and without pause adjusted our attendee's room rates if they did not get the group rate. Not once did I hear, "I have to check with my supervisor on this". I cannot think of one thing I would improve upon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EatGamer Decent room, hard bed, room service needs work
The room was what I expect from Holiday Inn but the bed was harder than normal. The room service was terrible - while it was timely the quality of the food was very poor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pigletpilot Close to all Fishermans Wharf experiences
We chose this hotel because of its location, and it didn't disappoint. However, it is expensive, and being from overseas find the additional taxes that aren't quoted at time of booking frustrating, and lower the value for money rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HansenTraveler Comfortable, nice room so close to the Wharf
I stayed just one night for business and checked in early. My original room was not ready so I accepted a different room which was fine with me. My room overlooked the pool, so there were people swimming in the evening but not much noise. I always take earplugs on business travel and went to sleep early and slept well. I had read some reviews that people complained abou the noise, but you have to remember you are in the city close to the tourist attractions. I had taken a nice walk along the wharf and had dinner and it was so pleasant. I would highly recommend this property and hope to have the opportunity to stay there again. I was dissappointed that the breakfast offerings were a bit expensive and would have liked at least the basic amenities offered at other IHG properties for the breakfast. The staff are EXCELLENT!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cruzer76 Great service, very uncomfortable bed, very expensive.
The staff was very helpful and friendly, but this hotel was not what I expected for the price. The bed was very hard, and the sheets had a weird odor. The location is great, but I opted to move down the street to a "no name" hotel that was nicer, and it was half the price.

We arrived early and 1 of our 2 rooms was available. No big deal. The rooms were big and comfy. The only problem we had was that no one ever came to clean our room or bring new towels. Our waste baskets were overflowing and it would've been nice to have a trash bag to put our trash in. Other than that it was a great stay and I would stay here again.
