of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I staied during 4 days in the hotel for a business trip. Rooms are very well equiped, very good restaurant is part of the hotel, breakfast was super and the service was very good as well. As the hotel is near the center of San Francisco it is very easy to visit the city.
"Excellent Hotel for Meetings"
I stayed at the InterContinental San Francisco as part of a conference. This was my second time staying in this hotel at an event of this nature. With both the meeting rooms and the conference setup I found this Interconti a very good experience. I had a corner standard room. It was adjacent to another room and the two could be blocked off for a family-type setup. I found the room quiet and extremely comfortable. Bathroom is well-appointed, good water pressure, and high quality toiletries. SF is a busy city and the hotels get worn out quickly. There is nothing about the InterContinental that feels worn out. I also spent a good amount of time on the second and third floors during my conference. I have experienced several meetings of this sort in San Francisco - at the Ritz, Fairmont, and Grand Hyatt and the InterContinental is very competitive with all of them. Their banquet food is more than adequate and they have a tent setup for meals that protect attendees from the elements but give off the impression of being outside. Staff is friendly and extremely capable. Easy access to SFO. It's a plus that you're on flat ground, so it's easy to walk to places nearby, including the convention center if you need to go there.
"Terrible Cancellation Policy"
After booking 5 nights in this place and paying in full up front I had a look at the fine print. $200USD deposit per night. $33 for breakfast, $15 for room wifi, $15 for wired room wifi, $15 for public area wifi, and the $30 refrigerator fee!. Here I was thinking I had paid for me room. So I asked Expedia to help me cancel since all these fees put me over budget and they asked for $240cdn just to cancel the room. Do your homework before you book a night in these big hotels that will fee you to death.
Stayed there for one night early this month exploring the city. Close to street car/Cable car station which i like. The front desk lady kindly upgraded me to the highest floor so we had awesome view of the city. The bath was great. Didn't try the restaurant but it looks nice. The hotel stays at 5th street. But you don't want to go any wester at night. You will know why when you see.
"Taking excellence to the next level"
We stayed at The Intercontinental, Howard Avenue for a four night break before travelling down to San Diego. I can only say that everything, service, accommodation, ambiance, was 110% throughout our stay - Nothing was too much trouble. So, if you like a luxury hotel and are debating which one to go to in San Francisco, the Intercontinental, Howard Street knocks the socks off the rest.
