Decent Downtown Hotel, Convenient Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 31, 2012

This large, rather stark building in a drab version of late 50s-early 60s modern is perfectly decent. It is comfortable and clean and has a great location, with plenty of parking in the building. It is nothing special, but does the job fine for sleeping, etc., unless you are looking for a special experience, romance, or luxury. The location is great for seeing downtown, with Chinatown, Civic Center, etc. all a short walk away. For a good location in San Francisco, prices are pretty low.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway from August 13 to August 15. The rooms were correct with respect to the price we payed, but really nothing outstanding...
Breakfast was OK but expensive IMHO. What else can I say? Well, despite what is said in the brochure, if you have no car it's really not that well located, and if you' have a car... parking at the hotel is damn expensive ($65 for two nights).

Near California Cable Car Line

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 8, 2005

I stayed here for 2 nights upon the recommendation of my friend who works in Hilton Garden Inn. It really has great views of the city (24th Floor) and the cable car that goes up California St.

Right outside the hotel, I took the bus or what they call the MUNI going to Palace of Fine Arts and Fisherman's Wharf (all under 10 minutes of travel). The Fisherman's Whart can also be reached using the cable car as the hotel is right around the turnaround. Just ask for a vicinity map from the concierge.

3 night stay in a good quality hotel.
We were on about the 22nd floor with floor to ceiling window to photograph the views. It was quite an experience.
We saw the sunset and also the sunrise.
The rooms very adequate and roomy with all facilities. Thhe staff were couteous and friendly. Would definately stay there again
We used the trams or buses to get to and from the wharf and the other areas of interest with no problems. Good shopping nearby..
