Reviewed 19 January 2014

Fabulous room, front desk was excellent, easy walk to the convention center. The decor and atmosphere were great. I usually stay at the Marriott....this is much better. I did not have a great dinner experience, but it wasn't bad...it's just that SF has much better restaurants with better service. I will stay here again

We stayed at the Intercontinental for two weekend nights in early January. I would not have tried this hotel if I did not have a coupon for a free night (after joining the Ambassadors Club in Hong Kong to avoid crazy expensive internet fees). Wow, so glad we gave this beautiful modern hotel a try. First off, if you stay...

Stayed here while attending conference at Moscone. Very close to convention center and within walking distance to many restaurants, Chinatown, and Ferry Terminal. Be advised that south of hotel is a little dicey walking at night. But overall a great stay and would stay here again.

If you are looking for a good place to stay conveniently located to everything this is the place. It was easy to get to from the airport. Just hop on the BART and get off at Powell. It took about 25-30 minutes and coat less that $8. A regular cab will cost you $50. Once there don't be afraid to...

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.
