Do not bring a car

They charged $45.00 per day for parking. It was ridiculous. There was no lounge area or bar area for sitting and relaxing. The breakfast was mediocre at best. The location was good but I would not stay there again nor could I recommend this place to anyone.

weekend in sanfrancisco

Enjoyed it very much. close to fishermans warf, other attractions are very close. Remodel was almost complete, hotel very clean and staff very helpful. CON: nothing against holtel but all the literature fails to tell you that there are 2 seperate holiday inns and then express that made it very confusing. Hope someone can come up with a solution. This didnt take anything away from the weekend.

Holiday Inn Express

Our stay was amazing. The manager the most human kind I ever deal with. Even when a man came to him very hungry he know how to keep himself nice kind and very polite. Dan was a great help to us. We forgot our airlines tickets in the hotel. He and the housekeeper which she was great by finding the tickets in our room while we already at the SFA send the driver to us fast so would not miss our flight. Our tickets where stand by. We needed them to get in the plane. The all stay was a great experience. I will make this hotel my place every time I visit San Francisco. Congratulations for an amazing Job everyone does at your Holiday Inn express. Because of our experience I recommend this place

Holiday Inn Express Fishermans Warf SF

First, I went during the off season and the whole city was under construction preparing for the summer tourist season, so it should not have been a surprise that the HIE was under construction as well. In addition to the lobby area, I think the whole third floor was closed for construction. I was on the second floor and immediately noticed sounds, not loud, but a clear indication that work was going on. True to the hotel staff, though, it stopped at sundown. Overall, the place is nice, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's walking distance from the Warf restaurants and the Muni F-line as well as the cable cars. There are really close breakfast places that are great, but there is breakfast served in the lobby. It was always so crowded (due to construction) that I opted to eat elsewhere. The rooms are small, but that's HI Express, Free WiFi. TV is standard hotel fair. Overall, I would stay here again. Like I said, great location, great service, close to everything on the wharf, and easy access to downtown. I noticed in my travels that the other three holiday in locations in SF that I know of were also under serious construction, but then so was Coit tower, half of Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz, the Fort Point bike paths, and half the city. Like I said, this was in the off season.

Castagnolas is one block away and has the best food on the ward, the staff there are like family and I used it as my jumping off point each evening. All the original restaurants are worth a try, but this place stands out. Oh, and the food is tremendous.

Exceptional Front Desk Staff

Two things that would have me choosing this hotel again in the future -- the exceptionally friendly and helpful front desk staff and the fantastic breakfast. The latter was comprised of stations with different foods, like eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, bagels, muffins, pancakes, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, and others. Both the service and the breakfast were better than most hotels. Terrific location for those interested in the Fisherman's Wharf. I also found that it was well within walking distance to North Beach, Chinatown and the curvy part of Lombard Street. If one has health or fitness concerns, however, they might opt for one of the many different varieties of public transportation because of the steep hills in many of the areas. The only bad thing was that they were doing construction while I was there. It only really bothered me one day (NYE Day), but still, after paying quite a bit of money to be there that night, I was a bit disappointed. I'd definitely recommend calling to make sure that they are finished with the construction prior to booking, or to make sure you have a room away from the noise.

Great Loocatoon!

This hotel is in a really good location close to everything at fishermans wharf! Close to trolley cars to get around and go to union square. Close to tour busses for pier 39, Alcatraz island, Soselito and Muir Woods The hotel was under some renovations but didn't disturb us at all. Staff extremely helpful, rooms clean and breakfast each morning was pretty good, eggs, sausage, toast, cereal, juice, coffee, yogourt and fruit. Don't go to the Denny's around the corner at all! Terrible place!

Great location, good value

The location of this hotel is great. Close to all the sights at Fishermans Wharf, near the cable car route, lots of restaurants. Yet the hotel was very quiet. The breakfast provided was very good as well. Lots of choices. Would definitely stay again in this hotel and recommend it to friends.
