The hotel is ok. We were to have five nights there with our two young children (6 and 10yrs). The hotel itself was adequate, the room was a bit smaller but very clean, with a balcony covered in dust and pigeon poo. The staff were very friendly and efficient. On walking out of the hotel, the area is not overly...

This is a huge, multi-story Holiday Inn. It's perfect for large groups. But we were just two, and our reason for choosing it was its location, a short walk to the San Francisco Opera. We stayed 3 nights and saw 2 operas. The hotel staff was pleasant, the room was clean, and the breakfast room, also huge, had a hot...

The hotel itself lives up to the good standard we have come to expect from the Holiday Inn group. The staff were very friendly and helpful - Tyrone on the door was a real pleasure and very helpful.

To be honest, this is all one should expect in a Holiday Inn. Great lobby, decent restaurant, comfortable room, friendly and efficient staff. Some minors: WiFi only works properly in the lobby (but combined with a drink at the cozy bar, that’s to overcome) and parking an intermediate suv in the garage is quite a challenge. Halas it is located...

Great location. Exceptional staff. There was a mix up with room availability but reception fixed it promptly and included a day of parking. Very much appreciated after a long drive from LA. Room service food fantastic. Spacious modern rooms spotless and very comfortable. 10 out of 10.

Due to missing a flight, we had to find accomodation in San Francisco before our flight the next day.

We stayed at this hotel just recently, the beginning of October. Knowing what I know now, I wish I would have listened to my husband and canceled the hotel part of our trip and rebook somewhere else, even if that meant losing the money, because we booked thru Expedia.

While you were pleased with our hotel’s cleanliness, presentation, and easy access to public transportation, we are dismayed to hear the location was not what you anticipated for our inner-city community.

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.
