rooms: clean, silent, comfortable beds. location: close to Fisherman's Wharf (walking distance) staff: very friendly and helpful. We wouldn't book with breakfast again, it was the typical continental US-standard, but lot's of things were artificial and not made fresh (eg. scrambled eggs made from egg powder). All in all a good hotel if you're staying for a few days.

The fact that I have to pay $45 for overnight parking is outrageous. I know it's pretty customary for the area, but $45? Does it need to be that much, just because everyone else does it? The room smelled like someone had been smoking in it. The morning 'breakfast'you get would be nice if they had more than one machine... More

My husband and I brought our infant son to the US to attend my sister's wedding and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while we were in San Francisco.
