Stayed here for work. Was close to where I needed to be, but overall didn't seem like a great location. I walked a couple blocks and there was quite a few bums. Not sure if that's just the city, so not going to hold it against hotel. The person working front desk was very nice and took extra time for...

Well-located for public transport and shopping/eating/nightlife options, friendly and efficient staff & recently renovated, spottlessly clean rooms with balconies and decent beds - exactly what you need from a city hotel. Recommended!

I know I give Intercontinental hotels a hard time but they do serve a purpose, that purpose just does not happen to be serving me. This was a rare treat for a Holiday Inn. In downtown San Francisco, space is a rarity, but this hotel actually delivers. The desk agents were nice and accommodating and the lobby was spacious and...

This hotel is next to Market street, accesses to all public transportation. Easy way if you are taking the BART from SFO to Downtown SF. Hotel was clean and modest. Spacious room with a sofa, WiFi and TV. I would stay in that hotel again.

I would never have picked this hotel because of it's bad SoFran neighborhood. It's filled with homeless and poor who come out at night to raid trash for recycleable cans/bottles to turn in for cash. In fact, you could hear the noise of breaking glass for hours between 5PM-2AM because there was a recycling truck parked near the hotel where...

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.
