We were pleased with our hotel choice. The hotel itself was a typical Holiday Inn...clean and accommodating. The hotel restaurant was definitely overpriced. However, there were many local restaurants that were excellent and within walking distance. The best thing about this hotel was its location. Just a few blocks from the wharf, Giardelli Square, Lombard St., Cable Car stop and...

Great location but old and dated. Marginal beds and not updated at all. You are however walking distance to everything. If you get a good rate then I would go for it- otherwise looks elsewhere. We also stayed at the next door HIexpress which was much nicer. That also offers a free breakfast though it was not much to speak...

The Hotel was under some construction, but over all it was a great place to stay. If your looking for a 5 star hotel look else where! The staff was nice! We ask for an extra blanket and they bought us 2 within 5 minutes! Parking is high, and don't do the breakfast buffet! It was 22.50 per person! I...

Location is the key in real estate and this location is in prime tourist territory. It is so centrally located that I turned my rental car back since we could walk to most everything. When we were ready to proceed out of the area I just rented another car. Save yourself rental car and parking fees. As far as the...

Hello vsattui123, Thank you so much for the post. It is true our location is just awesome. I also agree that having a car can be more problematic than you would think as parking in the City is at a premium. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I hope to see you again soon.

'No surprises', that's the Holiday Inn promise from the 1970's. Well, we had one surprise at this Holiday Inn, which we'd booked knowing there'd be a good basic level of amenity - decent room, and a coffee shop for breakfast and light meals. We arrived after a long flight from New Zealand, a long bumpy airport shuttle ride, and all...

All hotels at FW are extremely expensive. The HI was quite a bit less. The location is perfect. Park the car and walk to every attraction. Also, parking is $40 extra but when you check out at noon, you can keep your car there until 6pm without incurring an additional charge. The room is typical HI, comfortable and clean. Upon...

Our family of four thought this Holiday Inn fit our needs perfectly. Originally we planned to stay at the Golden Gateway location because I was told that the wharf location is more touristy and shops close early.

Stayed here two nights with my family. Good location but a bit dated. Wallpaper in the bathroom. Clean, free WiFi. We were disappointed that the pool was closed without any notice. They compted our parking fees to make up for it. I would stay here again.
