Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Holiday Inn Civic Center

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Well-priced, central, surprisingly stylish Holiday Inn"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
This is not your typical, 2 floor Holiday Inn. This 14 floor property has undergone stylish renovations, especially in the lobby, that give it the feel of a trendy 3.5 or 4 star. The rooms are still very basic and brand-standard, but they have the benefit of being able to fit whole families (up to four people) in one room without additional charges, which is rare. The location is pretty good - one-half block from BART, MUNI and F-line Streetcars, eight blocks to Union Square and five blocks to Moscone Center (although the neighborhood can be a bit edgy at night). They also have one of the only outdoor pools in the city (on a sunny rooftop), which is a great place for kids to hang out. In general, this is a good, well-priced hotel for anyone visiting the city, wanting central, reliable accommodations.

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Convenient Although on the Edge of a Dodgy Neighborhood"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It's an all round okay hotel. Don't think the breakfast buffet is much to talk about and super pricey in regards to quality. Rooms are clean and function well although it would be nice to be able to open a window. It's on the edge of an upcoming neighborhood downtown, so its just a tad dodgy around the hotel but close to lovely restaurants, breakfast places, shopping and Starbucks. It is best to be with a friend, I would say, if you are going out to eat at night, especially coming back to the hotel when its dark.
