Hotel Review - Intercontinental Hotel San Francisco

Intercontinental San Francisco
888 HOWARD STREET
SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94103
UNITED STATES

Hotel Review and Trip Report - SF Intercontinental (South of Market / Mascone Center)

Update: Regular rates are still over $250 per night. I have stayed here a couple of times since, thanks to priceline, the hotel is holding up well and the staff is very friendly. The Bar is a still a tad over-priced for a nightcap.

The new Intercontinental opened in Feb. 2008. Its a 32 story hotel located south of Market Street in Downtown -- its very close to the Moscone Center for conventions. Since the hotel was new, the rates were fairly low ($170/night)...but after my stay the rates online were more like $289/night.

From the outside, its got a blue-green windowed front facing Howard and Fifth streets. Its actually a very good location with an easy walk north to the Shopping Centre and Cable Cars. However, you should avoid Sixth Street since its still a dicey area. The nearest BART station is Powell which is a quick 2 block walk up 5th to Market Street.


Since its a new Building (from the ground up) -- everything is new. The booked a standard room and got "upgraded" to room 2423. The room was nice with a ok view of the city. The bed was VERY comfy and the full size Plasma was nice to have.

I had friends staying in a Corner Room which had floor-to-ceiling windows with incredible views for the city and the bay. Even the bathroom had big windows.


The work space was nice and the again everything was new and unblemished.


My room did not have a bathtub -- only a shower. This is fine for me since I didnt need a bathtub, but I soon realized I was in the smallest room type in the hotel. Plus I was right next to the elevator shaft --- I guess being on the 24th floor was the "upgrade"


The hotel is very nice, the location is great if you want to stay downtown. The hotel staff is still "in training" a bit -- but this is a new hotel so I give them a pass on that. I had an error in my bill that took a couple calls and an email to the General Manager to resolve -- but he did resolve it very quickly.

Overall its a great hotel -- if you can afford the the new regular rates
