"Can't go wrong here"
We had a lovely stay here. Booked last minute but got a nice room with a view and enjoyed some of what San Francisco has to offer. Food here was about average. I would say the breakfast size was a little small. Rooms were nicely fitted out and what you would expect from an intercontinental hotel. Service was really good and always helpful. Overall a nice stay.
"It was a good stay"
Stayed 3 nights (2 nights as a revenue guest and the final day on points) at the Intercontinental San Francisco. It was a good stay, overall. I was checked-in by a fellow compatriot, not unusual in San Francisco, except that she was actually a student on an international internship enrolled at a local college back home - that was new. Anyway, she was very good at the job -- efficient, friendly and able to give definite answers to questions without hesitation. (If only I remembered her name --unfortunately, I'm bad at remembering names.) Staying on the theme of service, I witnessed the concierge hand-out a bottled water to a guest coming back from a jog. (Nice touch!) On another night, staff handed out water to guests waiting in line to check-in. What about the room itself' I booked a deluxe room and got one on (if I recall correctly) the 19th (or maybe 21st) floor facing southeast. Hard product wise, most everything was present and accounted for -- nicely sized room, comfortable bed, LCD TV (a quite large one), working desk, pens and stationery, mini-bar (with drinks but no snacks), robes, iron and ironing board, in-room slippers, closet and drawer space, Wifi, etc. Housekeeping was quick and efficient (I went out for breakfast at 9 a.m.'ish and came back at around 10'ish to a clean room.) You also get turn-down service. One thing I did not like about the room's hard inventory, the in-room safe (located in the closet) was of an older style and it was tall and shallow. The bathroom was fine. The usual (and expected for a hotel of this class) marble and/or granite. The bath towels were very good, nice and large. I just wished they were softer. The water heater was a bit slow in getting cold water warm but not overly so. My largest nitpick is the shower-tub combination (for a 4-1/2 to 5 star property) it should have been a stand-alone shower and a tub. Plus it didn't have a hand-held shower only the fixed one. Also, the toiletries on offer looked more house than high-end brand. I did not get a newspaper delivered to the room but copies of the San Francisco Chronicle were available in the elevator lobby for guests to take. Did not try the restaurant. Some sour notes -- the pricing in the business center is a rip-off (USD2 something to print a single page!) Plus I got charged USD15 for taking one of the in-room pens. (It's a nice pen mind you but still.) Location wise, the Intercontinental is literally beside the Moscone Convention Center. It's an easy walk to Target, Westfield, and the Powell Street stations for the Cable Car and BART.
"Comfortable & Great Location"
Stayed at the Intercontential San Francisco for a business event for 3 nights. Firstly, location is excellent as its two blocks from Market St and the tourist/shopping area of downtown San Francisco, also the Moscone convention center is one block on the same street. The hotel has a nice ambiance, the staff were always friendly and helpful. The room was excellent with perhaps the biggest tv I've ever seen in a hotel room. Being on a business event, waking up early and going to bed late, I loved that the beds in this hotel were so luxurious and comfy! I fell asleep within minutes! Only two mute points to this hotel; 1. The water pressure is terrible! It took me twice as long to shower as a result and 2. The room service menu is pretty limited for a hotel of this size and standard; however being in downtown I can probably understand.
"Ask for Clare!"
I travel for a living and stay in over 200 hotels a year. Clare has topped the chart with customer service. She has set the new standard of how to treat a customer like family. Being gone from home so much it's wonderful to be around such an incredible person. Intercontinental is lucky to have Clare and she is a wonderful asset to the popularity and success of this Hotel. Thanks so much Clare for everything!!
I was unable to figure out that why was it so costly. 2000 usd for three nights. Although close to convention centre but others are also close rather more towards market street side and are big names too. My room was too noisy 2422. Doors of neighnours used to shut with a huge roar enough to awaken you . And then washroom of neighbours kept me informed of their activities , shower voice , commode flushing everything was easily heard. Breakfast was ok sort not of the class of varietiesas in singapore , malasia where i stayed before
