Holiday Inn Civic Center

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Jctravel1983 on October 24, 2012

This hotel is located in the Civic Centre. Near (around the corner from the hotel) are buses and a little further is a metro / train station. With the bus you in about 5 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf. The bus goes straight down to downtown San Francisco and up to the artists' district. You can choose to either side are plenty of attractions. In the hotel there is parking for the car. But in San Francisco, you do not hire car, because public transportation is perfect.

You enter the hotel and you are immediately in a large lobby with gleaming floors and a beautiful lobby with black leather arm chairs. It excels at you. There is an elevator in the building and disabled facilities. Four rooms even have wheelchair facilities.

Friendly staff, after all you are in America. And friendly, it is important for the level of their tips (tips). The usual reception procedure follows. They ask the hotel voucher, which I luckily had with me. You fill your details, you give your credit card and you will receive the key to your room. I ask myself sometimes wonder what an American without a credit card must here. All rooms are non-smoking, that I was again emphatically said.

In the hotel's various facilities, a separate agency, where you can arrange day trips (eg a visit to Alcatraz) to fitness and meeting facilities and a swimming pool on the 4th floor. Nice is that in the morning newspaper for your door. My god, what are those papers thick!

The concept of the rooms in all Holiday Inn hotels I've been the same. A reasonable room with two double beds. A worksheet as small desk, a television. The TV channels and a lot of it is not enough then there's pay television. It is even possible to make games. But I still do not know how that works! Large shower and bath and toilet facilities Well maintained. The room is cleaned every day and the bed linen changed every day. There is a hairdryer in the bathroom. And of course, shampoo and shower gel. Free coffee / tea making facilities and a mini fridge on the worktable. There is a price list for the mini fridge, so you can decide whether you want to drink expensive drinks. Coffee and tea is free. In the hallway is an icemaker. Air conditioning, which you can arrange in the room.

The Holiday Inn concept is recommended for all America. I know what I can expect and that suits me fine. The location of the hotel is actually in the middle of San Francisco makes you not only the tourist area of downtown and Fisherman's Wharf visit, but also another side goes. And the artists' district also has some. Travelling by bus is excellent. For me it was a good hotel, I can recommend anyone.
