    The Intercontinental Hotel provides two POPOS (Privately Owned Public Open Spaces) on the fourth and sixth floors. They have various seating arrangements and landscaping, each with views of the City

    Parking is $60 a night... Included breakfast is for 2 guests even if your reservation is for 4. Breakfast is $28 even if you're 7 years old. The pool was an afterthought very tight area with no seats.

    Great place to stay...close to the financial district and anything you need. Great staff and bartenders! Stay here enough and once they know you its like family!

    You'll find that this hotel is close to everything. You're within a 5 minute walk to several restaurants, shopping, a movie theater, and the Moscone Center. http://sf.travelivery.com Read more

    A great location, one of the coolest hotel bars we found in the city, and a super gym which you will probably want to hit up in the morning before the feasting begins.

    Order a beer and ask for a free Wi-Fi password in the bar to avoid paying $14.95 a day -- and to get a beer. The code will work in your room too.

    They treat you with respect. open the door for you. The place is very technology advanced. Overall a great place to spend your time. When you're not having fun in San Francisco.

    If you sign up for a completely free IHG membership you get free Internet and free 2pm checkout. Even if you never use points it's worth it. Stay above 8th floor for an unobstructed view.

    If you are an iPhone developer interested in maps or location - call into a Cloudmade developer lab, each morning during WWDC. Free breakfast & 1:1 talks with iPhone engineers. Paul@Cloudmade.com

    I was not impressed with this restaurant. you are in one of the culinary capitals of the world, so many better places to eat – star or not. Luce was pretentious and overpriced.

    Nice hotel in a good location but really feels like they nickel and dime. Parking is about $55 per night and you have to pay for extra for wifi.

    Apparently the terraces on the 4th and 6th floors are publicly accessible open space. So go nuts, public!

    It's in the downtown so you can walk any where you want😉 room service is cool but limited in food choices!
  • Orlando P.
    Staff is very friendly, all but one guy he was rude. He has red hair and glasses. I hope he doesn't deal with guest or else this hotel will lose a good reputation

    Ask for a room on the top floors, corner room. And try out Luce, although there are plenty of food options around.

    If you've eaten too many burritos during your SF trip, try to do a mini-triathlon at the gym (30 min swim, 5 mi bike, 3 mi run)

    Good accommodations, but do not even *touch* the stuff on the mini bar. It is wired to charge you. Literally.

    Amazing how 'luxury' hotel chains think that nickel & diming you on water and wifi creates a good customer experience.

    The handicapped "stall" in the lobby restroom is a stand alone bathroom with power outlet and cloth towels.

    Didn't stay at the hotel but the Grand Ballroom is a wonderful meeting space and the lobby is gorgeous.

    Do not take the breakfast buffet. It is not included in your room rate; they charge you $30 extra for it. Definitely not worth it

    Chef Concierge, Bill Sutton, is as good as it gets! He'll give you descriptive recommendations that will make you want to go wherever he points RIGHT AWAY!

    Room keys are RIDICULOUSLY sensitive. Keep them away from your phone or the keys will be fried.

    Don't put your drink on the end of the bar. Its slanted and your drink will fall off.

    For free wifi you can suscribe to the "intercontinental rewards program" (or something like that... Can't remember the name) :)

    Wifi is very slow. Not worth 15 dollars a day, my 3G tethering was faster and that's what I used.

    Going swimming? I think you gotta swim about 66 lengths/33 laps to get a mile out if the 25m pool. Do it!

    I wish high end hotels in the US didn't feel the need to nickel and dime you for Internet. 15 bucks for 1 night. 😕

    If your wifi is sluggish, plug into Ethernet. Much faster
