Last week, we told you about the Michelin-starred grub at Luce, the restaurant at the Intercontinental San Francisco, but today, we’re going to take you on a video walkthrough of a standard guestroom there so you can get a feel for the entire hotel experience.

Our favorite features of the room? Enormous windows (though not such awesome views), a cozy work desk-sitting area, a huge flat-screen TV on which to watch Anderson Cooper spout off on CNN, an iPod docking station, huge marble bathrooms (though the sliding doors were kind of unwieldy and didn’t lock!), neutral-toned patterns and fabrics, and well stocked minibars.

The spa, though small, is cleverly designed, and was just voted among the top ten urban spas by SpaFinder.com. Add to that a large sundeck, an indoor lap pool and a decent-sized gym with all the latest equipment, and all your personal maintenance needs should be more than taken care of.

Perhaps the best amenity is the fantastic restaurant, as we’ve already discussed, but the location is also ideal if you happen to be in San Francisco for a convention. All the Moscone Center buildings are just a short walk away (and some are even on the same block). Just make sure you’re going east, because a block or two west on Howard, and things start to get dicey. Still, for rates that start as low as $140, we’ll take what we can get.
