    Nice place. Though even on the 19th floor the sirens going by are loud.

    Who had the "bright" idea to mount a lamp at eye level above urinal? This is the worst thing ever.

    It's in the downtown so you can walk any where you want😉 room service is cool but limited in food choices!

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

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

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

    A great hotel for a city trip! Well located, with good restaurants nearby. My room was modern and spacious with a great view of the city. The bed was very comfortable! I would stay here again.

    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. 😕

    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.

    Tiny tiny weeny pool. Not really worth it.

    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.

    Fairly poor customer service all around.

    Patrick Cavins · August 11, 2014

    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.

    Upgrade to club room to really experience luxury

    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

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

    Be an IHG rewards club member. It has its perks.

    Corner rooms are awesome. Floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views.

    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. Read more

    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)

    The Foursquare Special cocktail is a blueberry mojito. Delicious.

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

    Fabio, a bellman, is super nice and friendly! The hotel is really nice but the parking is sooo expensive!

    Wifi isn't free, what a joke

    30 dollar breakfast buffet is overpriced and not the good. More value going elsewhere

    Go elsewhere for breakfast. It's over rated and over priced.

    Free computer access in Club Longe plus outdoor patio to enjoy champagne breakfast.

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

    In the lounge you shouldn't play childeren's programs ! The hotel is quite nice !

    Cedric de Neef · August 7, 2013
  • Marina B.

    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.
