not bad, not good

Would really have liked an indoor pool, which is pretty standard in other Holiday Inns. The outdoor one was freezing and had no hot tub. Parking seems very convenient, integrated into the hotel, but in a maddening way - you have to go either upstairs or downstairs to get to the hotel elevator from the parking area, and if you have a lot of luggage, a stroller, a baby, etc. this is really a problem. It's also very expensive. Much better to pay half the price around the corner on California, just across from Whole Foods.

Beautiful, centrally located bargain

This beautiful hotel was located on a main street, Van Ness, which made it easy to get transportation everywhere. The staff was extremely friendly and let us store our bags there all day while we went sightseeing on checkout day. The rooms where clean and very upscale but as with all rooms in San Fransisco, small. We loved it and would definitly recommend it.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

By a $2 pass on the Muni, it lets you travel almost everywhere for 4 hours and sometimes even longer...they rarely check the times.

Highly Recommended

Stayed here 3 nights. Hotel and rooms are in very good quality - quiet and clean. No complaints whatsoever. Courteous staff. Location worked out excellent for me. Bus and Tram lines are within 1-2 blocks away.

Centrally Located

The location is great! You are right in the middle of a lot of the tourist attractions so its only a $10 cab ride anywhere you want to go. Without buying a 3 day pass for trolley, the cab was the best form a transportation. The only negative thing about this hotel was the fact that it is 2 blocks away from a hospital so you would hear sirens 24/7 day or night. But I guess that gives you the downtown city atmosphere...

Fun San Francisco Getaway

Great location to cable cars and public busses. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Did not like that you had to pay extra to obtain a key card for pedestrian entry to garage (even if you do not plan to drive your vehicle).

Great Value

Very inexpensive hotel in great location. The SF cable cars stop right next door to the hotel (there are also a number of bus lines around the corner) and provide cheap and fast transport to all the interesting tourist parts of the city (e.g. Fishermans Warf, Union Square, Peer 39 etc.). Perfectly located between the shopping part of down town and the beauty of the Golden Gate Park.

One to two blocks away are a number of great small ethnic restaurants that don't cost a lot, but offer wonderfull food.
