Why use HJGISF as an abbreviation?

For example, are you traveling to San Francisco for business or pleasure? Visiting friends or family there? Simply want to soak up the sights and attractions?

It’s very simple: decide what you want to actually accomplish (what you want to see or do) in San Francisco. And then decide whether Howard Johnson-Golden Gate’s location is a benefit for that or not.

Does Howard Johnson-Golden Gate have a pool?

An indoor pool or outdoor pool (or even super swanky rooftop pool) might or might not be important to you, depending on how you’re planning to spend your time in San Francisco and who you’re traveling with.

For example, if you’re traveling by yourself on business, it might not be important at all, but if you’re traveling to San Francisco with friends, family, or children, and you think you’d enjoy relaxing by the pool at HJGISF, it might be an important consideration whether there is an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, whether it’s heated or not and has a pool bar or not, and so on.

If a pool is very important for your stay, THG recommends that you do a specific search for the best deals on San Francisco hotels with pools.

Does Howard Johnson-Golden Gate have a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, spa, or spa tub?

While you’re exploring the pool options at HJGISF2359, you might as well check whether there’s a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, full service spa, or spa tub that you might be able to enjoy to make your stay even more relaxing.
