Fabulous 8.8 From 935 reviews

InterContinental San Francisco, San Francisco
Very Good8.0
Fell below expectations
I was really not impressed with this hotel. The room was over $500 a night, and my expectations were higher. The room size was large; however, the sheets were too crisp for my liking, and the towels were hard. My other complaints were 1) they didn't even bother to clear the garbage can from the previous visit and 2) I used the speed dial to call concierage and it went to someone's room. She was quite upset. I called the operator and told them about this, and they just apologized. I would have expected them to have them fix it right away. Finally, the check in and check in process was speedy, but did not feel welcoming or friendly. The staff was quick to get you in, but didn't bother to indicate important times for breakfast, wifi. At check out, they didn't ask how the stay was. Also, the amenities in the room were scarce. They really only had the bare basics. I wouldn't stay here again.

Dated and some caveats re location
Dated hotel and certainly not on par with Europeans hotel of the same chain - but it is just next to the convention center Unfortunately there is also proximity to market street which is a human tragedy (homeless relive themselves on the street, shoot up etc)

Staff were very helpful, especially when we added an additional nights stay day before we were to check out. Made sure we didn't have to change rooms. Everyone at this hotel was extremely friendly.
