The hotel is ideally located on Howard Street and is convenient for the Moscone Center and the shopping district. The hotel is bright and modern with well equipped rooms. The gym and pool are on the 6th floor and the best views are from the upper floors

I was in town for a conference durung a rare California rainy week. It was quite windy & rainy & the door men were so nice and had extra umbrellas (I had my own). My king room was a corner with floor to ceiling windows (including the bathroom) on a high floor. The view was very good - mostly city...

Not a good surprise. I arrived from a 12 hours flight at 2.30 pm and the reception told me that the room will only be available at 4 pm - unless I accept a lower quality room at same rate... Long discussions necessary to get a similar room at same rate.. and when I reached my room at 3 pm...

I should know better by now, Hilton or Intercontinental hotels are run without a soul or heart, a simple profit center. Completely free of "hospitality" . Run down rooms- smelly carpets- water is dripping in the shower....what a bad experience. Only when you become a member of their program the internet is free.

I always have a great stay at intercoms, staff are courteous and always helpful, the hotel rooms are really clean and nicely laid out. Hotel is a short walk to Union Square, China town, no shortage of good places to eat locally.

I stayed at this hotel in July 2012 when I booked it direct. This time it was a Priceline Express hotel so I did not know what hotel it was until it was booked. I was happy when I i found out the name. The hotel and room were very nice as I had remembered them. There was only one...

I spent 3 nights at this hotel last week during the busy Google conference. Everything just works. The location is fantastic - right in the best area and close to all the interesting bars, restaurants and sites. The service was excellent - nothing too difficult to do. The food was great and the room very comfortable and clean. This sets...

Several clients and my company book rooms in this hotel to serve as both conference rooms and host out-of-town colleagues. The price is insanely expensive, and although you do get what you would expect from a InterContinental, it's really not that great comparing with other properties outside of US. Rooms on the high floors offer sweeping view of San Francisco,...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
