Normal hotel - terrible location

A normal holiday inn; nothing out of the ordinary. Terrible location. Because of such a terrible location, they should have made breakfast free every morning for guests. Nothing special about this hotel. If you are visiting SF, don't stay in the civic center area.

Centrally Located!!!

While this was very much a business hotel, it was in a great location for any casual traveler visiting to see the sights! One block away from BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) plus bus routes, trolleys, and even walking distance from the famous cable cars this hotel is ideal for anyone wanting to explore. A map was given to us upon check-in and hotel staff were more than helpful with answering any questions we had. The main purpose of our visit was a trip to symphony hall for a concert and we found the hotel within walking distance. The iconic city hall just down the street gave us a beautiful view from our hotel window while also offering us a landmark while finding our way back to our hotel. Key card access to all floors made this both a high tech and safe hotel. Hotel was close to fast food, Starbucks coffee and Wallgreens market making it convenient for food supplies and snacks. The hotel was clean and cleaning staff were effecient and polite. Front desk staff made our check in and out easy and helped with such important needs as printing airline tickets. The only part of our hotel stay we disliked, had nothing to do with the hotel itself but more with daily "wear and tear" that is bound to occur when a place is well traveled. Our bath tub backed up during our stay and was slow running, a common problem that can happen even at home. If this was the worst of our problems, it was a great stay! I would stay here again if I were in town!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

San Francisco's famous cable car ride is a short walk from the hotel and is a must see for any first time visitor. For those looking to explore the city, this hotel is close to many other forms of transportation such as BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), Muni (Municipal Transit Authority), Trolly cars, and main streets for walking, making it one of the easiest cities to travel.
