    Good Location- it’s on the less busy side of the city but still accessible to transportation and walkable to union square, and to Orpheum Theatre where we watched Hamilton. not much dining options but there’s A cinema with a food court nearby. Our room with 2 double beds is just the right size for the 3 us. Restaurant is currently under repair.

    Friendly staff, high ceiling lobby

    It was very comfortable and pleasant. Loved the smiles and kindness of the staff. Parking was pretty expensive but we didn't have any other choices. Didnt have chance to eat or drink at the hotel due to busy schedules and yummy food in the chinese quarter! The location was also not too bad!

    Nice stay, but it felt like something was missing compared to other Intercontinentals that we have stayed at. We then found out there is another Intercon in San Fran which is likely the one to stay at. Pleasant stay nonetheless.

    comfy bed, relative close to the main SF attractions, clean

    I would say it exceeded our expectations. I have stayed in several Intercontinental Hotels in Asia Pacific, and they are all quite nice hotels. With this one, we were not sure at the beginning since we got a good deal on the room rate so thought it is not the same as those in AP. It turned out to be a very comfortable stay. Nice room and within walking distace to many attractions in the SF.

    Location, Decor, Shopping

    Usually stay at another hotel in San Francisco downtown, but they are charging very high rate during the period I would like to stay. So decided to try out Intercontinental, I think I will stay here again in the future because the location is really great, it was an easy access to all shops and restaurants in downtown, it is also next to a park and the convention center, really great location.

    Close to the action and great restaurant. Super high valet parking charges (use carpark behind hotel). High internet charges. One block away from the shopping and about a 5 - 10 minute walk to Union Square.

    We loved the room! Very spacious, comfortable and clean. Beautiful velvet sofa was very nice but either drab or sun damaged. Bathroom is very large, big tub, separate spacious shower (low water pressure.) View’s from the 32nd floor were great! Staff friendly and helpful!!! Room service (dessert) was tasty. We had the bread pudding (just ok) and chocolate mousse tort (very decadent.) We will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity!

    This hotel is in a very centrally located area. All over San Francisco and will find A lot of homeless people. But don't let that bother you most of them are homeless and keep to themselves. This hotel is a beautiful clean well-kept hotel when excellent mannered staff and beautiful facilities as well as an indoor pool spa and Gym. We had a beautiful club room on the 31st floor with access to the intercontinental club. Which gives you a fabulous breakfast afternoon snacks and beverages evening as well as beers and alcoholic beverages cappuccino espresso etc. food which would be enough to suffice your appetite for dinner. It is well worth the price to take a clubroom if you are going to utilized the food and beverages in the Intercontinental club.
