My family of 4 only booked one night at this hotel and it was everything I expected a high rated hotel to be. It was just two short blocks to Fisherman's Wharf, which was nice. The room was very clean and beds comfortable. It had all the "little" amenities you would expect. The only thing that wasn't pleasant was the night time noise from outside. I have to sleep with windows open for true comfort and it was quite noisy outside; drunk people, a car drag racing down the street, and at one point somewhere, some woman was wailing. Day time seems nicer with families about, but once the sun goes down, it becomes filled with "seedy" people.

Great, stay in a relaxing hotel. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was in an excellent location, just steps away from the Pier and restaurants. Brilliant hotel for families with plenty to do for the children and lovely that you were allowed to grab a takeaway and sit outside in the wonderful hotel grounds with your own food & drink. Very different décor (in a good way) and very well decorated and planned thoughtout. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to all (and to top it off, we were charged exactly what we were quoted - no hidden extras unlike so many other hotels). Well done and we look forward to a return trip in a couple of years!
This residence is located right above Ghirardelli Square. Alcatraz is right across the bay and the views from the balcony were fantastic! Everything you could need or want is provided...including a washer and dryer in one of the closets. Every evening music would drift up from the Square...very good artists and lovely sounds. A fireplace adds a nice touch, and there are two TV's with DirecTV. The valet service will take good care of your car, and this is great because parking in SF is at a premium. The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. One could not ask for anything more.
I was pleasantly surprised to find the Holiday Inn Express had practically everything I could want in a hotel. The staff was friendly; the lobby was clean, modern and welcoming; the room was just as clean, with a very comfy bed. Perhaps best of all is the hotel's location--just a few blocks from the Wharf, and Pier 39, the Aquatic park, various bus and streetcar stops, a grocery store (Safeway), and numerous other notable places. We really could not have stayed in a better area for seeing the most sights in SF. Plus their included breakfast was tasty and varied--not "cafeteria" quality at all.
PS, there isn't a pool. That might be obvious to people, and they don't say they DO have one, but somehow I got the notion that basically every hotel has one and stupidly packed trunks and sandals that went unused. So just in case someone else made the same assumption, I figured I'd mention it. They do have a gym though, if you're into that.
We had to use the hotel parking garage at an extra charge of $60 per day ($300 for our stay plus tips for bringing it around. Also the buffet breakfast was $75 for 2 persons and while it was very good thst was too much. We only ate there the first morning.

Sea lions bask in the sun by Pier 39's shops at Fisherman's Wharf. Nearby, Ghirardelli Square's chocolate factory gives a taste of the sweet life. At Pier 33, boats depart for Alcatraz. The city and Golden Gate Bridge gleam atop Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. Literature thrives at the famed City Lights book store in North Beach. Washington Square Park is the heart of this historic Italian enclave.
