    We stayed at the holiday inn for two nights. Hotel was clean and well taken care of. Would stay there again if I was in San Francisco. Breakfast was very pricey. Bring your own breakfast food possible.

    They held our luggage while we went for breakfast, as we had a later flight, so I'm sure they could hold it before check in too.
