    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Be careful where you walk. I took a stroll to the REI a couple of blocks south of the hotel. Definitely the seedy part of town but spotted with some hipster coffee spots.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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)
