I couldn't be happier with the venue; the hotel is located in a convenient neighborhood with one of the famous cable car station at the street corner that drops you off at several of SF's favorite must-see sights in no time. The hotel is easily accessible by public transportation (bus stops right at the corner of the hotel) in an authentic SF neighborhood with delicious restaurants in walking/cable car distance (wheelchair friendly!).

Venue address:

Holiday Inn Golden Gateway

1500 Van Ness Avenue| San Francisco, CA 94109

415-447-3021 | 415-775-5425-fax

ba= Bart station

If you come from the airport take bart until CIVIC CENTER, take muni until Van Ness, get off and cross Market street toward Van Ness Ave and take the bus/taxi (on the right side of the street - in front of Walgreens) up-hill towards Holiday Inn; approx. a 15 min ride by bus, depending on the traffic.

Bus accepts cash, BUT you need to have the exact amount (currently $2.25 for a 90 min ticket) because the drivers don't have change.

  1. The beer selection at this place was great and rotates often. Everyone who works at LA venues makes you feel welcome. They remember your favorite drink and you will be glad to tweet about them.

  2. Hi!
    I hear typically that "individuals have no cash in January." If that is the case, invite them to guide a celebration to earn the objects on their want record. In the event that they inform you their associates are all broke, allow them to know that your events aren't about asking individuals to come back to your own home and spend cash. Colocation paris
