Thank you for taking the time to write so many details about your visit. These are helpful to our future guests. My feeling on Polk Street is quite different. I believe it is quite safe, and most certainly packed with restaurant choices. Like most cities,...More

Your decision is completely understandable. It seems as though mistakes were made at every turn. I appreciate that you gave us a try. If fate brings you to our hotel again, I trust your experience will be much different.

I’ve often wondered the same thing about the wifi. It turns out that it has to do with the number of IP addresses the servers can handle. With multiple devices being used in each room, a 500 room hotels can generate substantial usage. However, we...More

The Holiday Inn Golden Gateway is a clean, comfortable, functional hotel, as expected for any Holiday Inn across the country.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated

were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

The hotel front desk did allow us to leave our luggage near the front desk. They did not lock it up but it was sitting right in front of the check in desk.
