Close to everything!
We had a beautiful view from our room, and plan on coming back again. It makes sense to stay closer to the Bay, as we just walked to all the food, venues, and sights. We didn't have to pay for an Uber or taxi, and didn't have to worry about a DUI.
There were other hotels, and they looked nice. But, I didn't see the need to pay an extra $100 or more to be a block closer to the noise and crowd.
It is a Holiday Inn....and I was concerned, but it met my expectations and needs.
