Phase 1 of my journey complete- short hop to San Francisco! Decided to only stay here one day on the way as I'm just far too excited to get to New Zealand. On the way back I'll give the city its fair time. I had to do two flights from Florida. Right as I was waiting for my flight in Orlando a torrential downpour started (surprise surprise!).. I'm talking downpour hurricane style though. Our plane ...

... we weren’t selected for additional security. The longest part of going through security was putting my laptop back in our carry on and Doug putting his wallet away, shoes on, … Yay we’ll make the plane !!!

By then it was time to visit the ladies … those automatic toilets amuse me …well they did until I got a dodgy one at LAX. No sooner had I wiped the seat and put the paper toilet seat on than the ...

Escape to Alcatraz

... Self guided headset tour was a real hit with everyone. Caragh caught looking a bit too empathetically at a photo of a bloke shot by his wife. Story of the prison only matched by views back across the bay. Back to pier 39 for classic boardwalk shops. Shiv captured by shop purely for left handers. Her brothers inspired by raft of gifts for picky sister. Jason pointed out to Caragh signed Fender Bruce Springsteen guitar in memorabilia shop. Caragh given the ok to ...

    Great New Hotel by the Convention Center, but Staff Needs Some Help


    I recently spent the weekend here wth my wife and toddler in April 2008. I was impressed by the building and the lobby - very contemporary and spacious, but its obvious the staff is new because they are not as attentive as te top hotels in San Francsico.

    Excellent hotel--but watch out for the upcharges!


    This is a brand-new hotel, opened 2/28/08, and, at the rate I paid, $160 a night, you won't find a better value (without Priceline) for a true 4* hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. I didn't even hear people in the hallways. The room size is fairly large for a big city center, although there is only room for one person to sit at the desk, so I think it would be difficult for more than one person at a time to enjoy room service. There are eight fast elevators.

    Stay here!


    Note: Don't confuse the reviews with the other one (InterContinental Mark Hopkins).

    Very nice...


    Stayed at the hotel with a friend in mid March for two days, Thursday through Saturday. I booked through the hotel website, before the hotel even opened, for less the 200 a night. The hotel is brand new and carries with it the definite need to please. When we arrived, there were three managers in business suits standing in the lobby greeting guests and offering assistance to anyone who may have needed some.

    Terrific Hotel


    My family stayed at the InterContinental last weekend and thought the hotel was fantastic. We had adjoining rooms on the 22nd floor with wonderful views. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bellmen were extremely attentive with the kids and suggested great places to eat.

    The hotel is immaculate and comfortable. The linens were high quality, the room had a terrific flat screen TV and the room had many amenities. The service was terrific and responsive.

    The hotel is located in a terrific area, near the Yerba Buena gardena, Moma and union square with lots of restaurants and shopping. We walked everywhere.

    I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

    Wonderful Anniversary


    This is a wonderful hotel. The windows in the rooms give you a great view of the city. I feel that the hotel gives this area a modern feel. The staff is professional and nice. The room is a little small, but new and modern. There is a sitting area, which I love and a great walk in shower with his and her robes. There is also a bar in the hotel which is also wonderful. It was my tenth anniversary and they set the room up with a welcome letter, a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. I would definitely stay here again. Loved it!

    Meets Expectations


    Stayed at the Intercontinental last Saturday. I was hoping to be the first to review.

    Nice, but not quite world class


    We stayed at the brand new Intercontinental for an "intown getaway" to celebrate a birthday. The place was very nice but for a hotel in its price range (we paid a rate of about $200, but that was clearly headed upward) it still had some issues.

    Great stay


    The hotel is spoted close to union square and all the shops around. The service is excellent,though the guys at the reception are still learning the work. Everybody was helpful and kind(even when you felt sometimes that this is the way they are told to be). There is no service you might need and can not be satysfied. This hotel has got everything. Nice gym, a spa and massage service, a small but quite long pool with a jacuzi by it's side, a business center, wi-fi internet(though I think it is quite expensive), a breakfast with a good variety and quality of foods etc.

    Still working on the details


    I stayed in this hotel for one evening on March 4. The hotel had just opened the week before. Upon check in I was told I was upgraded to a club level room. I was travelling on corporate business and knew the room rate reflected the "club rate" so this was not a surprise to me. I asked for clarification if the hotel had upgraded me or the company and was told it was the company. I was given my room key and told the spa was on the 6th floor. That was it. From internet information I knew the club rooms are the top two floors of the hotel and include access to the executive lounge. We settled into our room and found no information clarifying what was included in our rate. I called the front desk and was told that someone would get back to me in 10-15 minutes. 45 minutes later I called down again and was told all my rate included was a room on the top floors and upgraded immenities. She apologized for the confusion and as a consolation said she would honor my request for a late check out the next day at 1:30. I was informed the staff was either new or brought in from other properties to help - this was their excuse? We're talking about basics here.
