I stayed in Holiday Inn Civic Center (SFO) few months back during my business trip. Overall experience was average and felt that this is more suited to low budget tourists and not recommended for business travel. Core essential for any business trip is need of good Wi-fi connectivity which was really bad. I had to sit in the lobby area...

The rooms have apparently been renovated, the bathrooms more half-heartedly. Would have been convenient if the balcony doors shut properly because of the traffic noise. Complimentary ear-plugs were a give-away. The location is a couple of blocks (big blocks) from any venue or dining facility (except Starbucks and BK). Market Street at night is very empty on that side, except...

I have found this part of town to be very safe as a traveler and have never had a problem.

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.
