“Wonderful two night stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

I just returned from staying at the Intercontinental San Francisco. I stayed for two night in a deluxe room with two beds on the 23rd floor and we had an amazing view of the bay. The room was in great shape and had the most comfortable beds making it hard to get up and going. The room had a very large walk in shower with a hand held shower and shower head. The only negative that I can give the Intercontinental is that when someone slams there door you can hear it in your room. I loved the free wifi to.


The service I received was on par with other five star hotels that I have stayed at. May checked us in fast and made us feel welcomed and made us feel as if we were VIP guest. She was friendly and loved the hotel she worked for.

I will be back and I have found my favorite hotel in San Francisco going forward. If you are looking for a five star hotel and not wanting to break the bank give the San Francisco Intercontinental a try.

Stayed 5 night at IC SF, which turned out to be fantastic! The location was unbeatable, just a few step away (like 2-5 min by walking) from the Moscone Convention Center, the Powell station, and lots of shopping centers and restaurants. The room was equipped with modern facilities, very spacious and bright. Although it is located in the very center party of the city, the room was very quiet, stayed at 30th floor, the view was so great that I opened my curtain all nights to enjoy the view and the lights while falling asleep! And of course, very helpful and nice staff. One thing I think not so great was the selection of food for breakfast was kind of limited. But overall, I really enjoyed the stay at IC SF.

Room Tip: Standard room facing north has amazing view of the SF downtown skyline, standard room facing south h...

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip. Upon checking in, I was warmly greeted at the front desk. They thanked my for being a member of their hotel frequent stay club, gave me a high and quiet floor as requested, offered me late check out, and gave me a chocolate covered pretzel as a welcome gift (nice touch). I went to my room (3009) and was impressed by the room and the view (amazing). The amenities in the bathroom were great but it did appear that the toilet may not have been thoroughly cleaned (not a big deal...just wanted to note it). Housekeeping performed turn down service in the evening while I was a dinner (nice).

I also wanted to point out that I had one of the best nights sleep at a hotel in a long time at the Intercontinental. The combination of the wonderful mattress and the great pillows provided me much needed slumber.

Did not use any of the amenities like the pool or the hot tub but heard they were nice.

Thanks to the folks at the Intercontinental, I had a great experience. I would definitely this hotel to both business folks and tourists. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on an upper floor. The view is amazing. :)

We recently stayed at the Intercontinental and loved it. Our room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was very friendly.
The only downside to this hotel is that there is bad neighborhood within walking distance. The hotel was very forthcoming and even highlighted the area on a map for us.
The most important thing to me is SILENCE and I am happy to say that this hotel totally hit the mark here. I rarely heard anyone or anything even though the hotel was quite full.
Didn't eat at the restaurant onsite but it looked really nice.

Room Tip: stay away from the elevators. There are a bunch of them and every once in a while I could hear the...

We spent two nights here and were very satisfiend by the rooms and whirlpool. It's not long distanced from places like Market Street etc. Although the room view was quite ordinary (buildings in construction, offices or homes), hotel was great.

The hotel is not at the Union Square, but it is close enough to walk to the Union Square and BART station.
The check in was smooth and quick. They have upgraded me to a superior room since I am a gold member.
Staffs in this hotel was eager to help!! They were conscious about the needs of customers!! Nice impression they gave me.
The room was adequate, similar to 5 star hotels in US. It was quite spacious and clean. The view included a view of Oakland.
Nice amenities even with slippers. Not too many hotels in US provide indoor slippers.
Only a overnight stay, so didn't use any restaurants although LUCE in the lobby level supposed to be Michelin's star restaurant.
The lobby bar was quite lively with crowd probably from the convention.
The Moscone Convention Center is within walking distance.
The overall was quite satisfactory, and I would definitely come back.
I think this hotel is better than Marriott with better service.

Room Tip: No noise problem I encountered. Upper floor rooms can offer better view.
