Historical Traveller Reviews of InterContinental San Francisco Moscone Center Hotel
Super nice hotel - immature servicefrom bobeek
Great New Hotelfrom Olofvilla
I was impressed with the corner location,a fabulous comfy King Size bed,the large HD TV ,the size of the room and very good bathroom facilities.
Good Views from the corner room over to AT&T park and Bay Bridge and not far to walk to the shops at Union square
Used the Club room facility for free Internet use
Ate breakfast in the morning at the restaurant and thought my particular waiter was not up to scratch, bill was wrong and service was slow.At this standard of hotel you should not keep having to ask for things.Food was ok but I had eaten a lot better for less money around union square
Loved the Room, the lobby staff and door staff were very pleasant and made a great first impression. The Hotel car to the airport was also good value compared to Taxi's.
Would stay again at the Hotel if i could get similar good weekend rate
Just typical business hotel, nothing more!from Arturas
Ok, it is all new, clean and not bad location if you like shopping in San Francisco ( Union sq is just a few blocks walking from the hotel). I must say hotel staff is indeed very friendly, happy and willing to help you. But beside that I do not understand excitement of the previous reviewers of this hotel. It is just one of typical business hotels with nothing really special... No ambiance at all. The gym room is far too small for such a big hotel, that was really dissapointment. The swimming pool is quite as long as there 2 or 3 swimmers you can do lap swimming.
If you are on business and just need a good bed then this is perfect place. If you are on holidays or looking for the hotel with some ambiance, go somewhere else. And then again...if you are on business, wifi is not free of charge....Come on...who charges for wifi these days?? In most of the hotels wifi is complimentary and part of the service....
Intercontinental Happiest Place on Earthfrom MedWriter
I paid a slightly higher price to be located on one of their coveted "Club Floors" but was well rewarded for the price difference. The club was open most all of the day and evening hours and was always staffed, again, with those happy and friendly employees.
Checking out of this hotel, I actually felt a small sadness that I would be leaving -- a first for me when it comes to business travel.
I highly recommend this hotel and can't wait till I have another assignment in San Francisco (I'm a medical writer).
Excellent service.from SalvadorDaliFan
Loved It -- but not cheap.from bdubs9
The extra charges can pile up quickly. For us = $15 internet, $52 valet parking, $12 movie, $30 breakfast. Of course we could've not gotten some of those things, but this was our weekend to splurge on ourselves.
Our room wasn't finished when we arrived (2hrs before check-in) and they called us on our cell phone to let us know our room was ready. They had taken our bags up to the room and everything was ready for us.
In one word...Amazing!!from annecharles
Give it time...!from su2320
The location is central enough but as other reviewers have mentioned taxi drivers aren't necessarily aware of the location, which is a hassle not only getting to the hotel, but getting a cab out front as well. We experienced several issues during our stay:
lost room service order (they wrote down the wrong room #); a FedEx package was never brought up even though it was received 2 days prior; a call ahead for a taxi was never honored; and the Club repeatedly ran out of food/wine/clean plates, etc. I did use the I-spa for 2 separate treatments and they were both fantastic and without any issues.
I'm sure all of the problems here will be resolved once they work through all of the kinks. I would give it another try in a few months.
s changingfrom bealocal
Though I can't say the Intercontinental Building is a thriller on the outside, our room was great on the inside. The hotel lobby is nice and clean, though not really full of a lot of personality. The staff was still adjusting, but super nice and welcoming. The moment we walked in the room, 1903, I knew I was on vacation - it was perfect for what we were looking for.
Usually we like smaller boutique hotels, but the anonymity was nice on this trip. We loved the south and west facing views from our room, the floor to ceiling windows wrapped around the corner, and the sun streaming in during the late afternoon. At night we loved just coming in the room and leaving the lights off and seeing the life of the city. In the morning it was nice to drink coffee and watch people as they walked to work.
The bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, the pillows were great (no neck cramps!), the room was immaculately clean (it's brand new), it was quiet at night. I do have to say the last two nights someone was next door and I could hear them a little through the wall, but overall the hotel was very quiet (I think maybe in part because it wasn't full, but also because I think it is built well). It was great to have the park right by too - huge bonus!
The downsides were being right on 5th I would be a little guarded about walking around at night by myself as a woman. I've stayed in busier areas in SF before and felt fine coming home later at night as a single woman business traveller, but this area is still a little sketchy. Don't go past 5th, always stay to 4th and down. The internet was not free here - HUGE downer. It was $15/day. On the plus side you can check-in online for free in the business center. This hotel is definitely designed to bump up the business traveler's expense report. Beware room service and the automated fridge. It was nice there was a small "personal" area in the fridge so you can go to Whole Foods nearby and get yogurt and oj for the morning.
I had a great time here and would come back again if the price was right, just because I love SOMA.
Top Local Tips for San Francisco
Taxi rides The airport taxi driver tried to rip us off. They are supposed to charge an airport fee and put it on the meter then you can add the tip. We realized it and didn't give him a tip because he tried to overcharge us. Be aware of the general cost of taxis around the city and be prepared...also some of the taxis are disgusting on the inside so if you get one of those get out immediately and request another one.
"Muni" You can buy a 7 day passport (also 3-day and 1-day) for $24. That gives you unlimited rides on the cable cars, muni light rail and muni busses. "Muni" is the name of the city (municipal) bus system. It doesn't include the Bart regional light rail system. Cable cars of $5 one way and other muni busses are $1.50. There are lots of steep hills and the cable cars help you get up and down the hills. They can get very busy at the powel/market station where all the tourists stop. Just avoid this stop (you can catch it a couple of blocks up the hill when others get off).
Pay the extra charge and get yourself on the Club Floor Pay the extra charge for access to the "Club Floor" because it will pay off if you frequent the Club for food or drinks. The best "Club" I have seen in my many travels. Everything was lovely and fresh. It was like being at your own home, but better.
