This was our first visit to San Francisco, so were not familiar with the city's layout, however, have to say the location of the HI Civic Centre was great! Only a few minutes walk from Union Square (which is currently being re-vamped) and the start of the cable cars which run to Fisherman's Wharf. Our Executive room on the 11th...

We booked this hotel because it was priced well. Location is good, rooms are nice, and it's a clean place. Major problem, parking. Paid for the parking (that's good parking) but....the ticket(s) they give you don't work. I constantly had to get new cards and paying almost $50 for parking it shouldn't have to be such a hassle to park....

I booked our room for a 5 night stay 2 months in advance and requested an early check-in because we were landing in San Francisco at 10:30 am. Upon arrival at the hotel we were told that an early check-in was not possible. I asked if we could leave our luggage and the gentleman working the from desk said that...

This is one of the official hotels for the Rock n Roll half Marathon in SF. Just less than 2 blocks away from the Civic Center - the finish line. Staff were friendly. I was allowed to check-in as early as 10am. Getting around was not a problem. The hotel was clean and quite at night compared to other hotels...

We stayed at this Holiday Inn on Fisherman's Wharf for one night at the beginning of our trip and two nights at the end because of (1) the low price and bang for the buck, (2) the good-enough tripadvisor reviews regarding cleanliness and experience, plus (3) available parking. What surpassed our expectations: the staff professionalism and in-person responsiveness at the...

Nice location off Market Street makes this place walkable to Miner Auditorium (SFJAZZ) and a number of restaurants in the area. Covered, secure parking is available, although it's extra. As is the case with a number of areas in the City, street folks tend to hang around a block or two from the hotel. King Room with sofa bed and...

We came here to see Hamilton, and I was happy to find the theatre is just across the street. In fact, we had a perfect view of the theatre from our 9th story room. Check in is at 3pm, but we were able to check-in at noon with no problem. The parking garage was convenient, and I was allowed to...

Visited this hotel as part of a 16 day tour of the west coast of America. This hotel is ideally situated for visiting the city and right on the corner of the California Street cable car system. Good sized and comfortable rooms and good meals/service.

My first impression started with having to walk through a number of people from air China smoking by the front door and the smell tarnished the experience. Walking in the lobby, it was extremely crowded, but the staff was helpful to direct me to a fast line as they delt with the air line customers. The people at the front...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
