The room, amenities and service were top notch and the best I have experienced in a while. There are two restaurants along with a great place to catch any one of a number of baseball games on many tv's in the bar. Foe those eating gluten free the restaurant offers a few options but not many. Rooms are spacious and...

I was provided accommodation at this hotel by Southwest airlines when my flight was cancelled and I had to stay overnight at SFO. At first glance, the hotel seemed fine. The front desk was prompt but no one helped us carry our bags to the room. Alas! Anyway, the room given to us was spacious and clean. The bathroom floor...

Stayed here for a long weekend. Restaurants within walking distance. Close to airport. Rooms comfy. Renovated two years ago. Great front desk agents. Very helpful. Shuttle to SFO. Can take shuttle back to airport and catch BART to downtown avoiding trying to park in a congested area.

Sometimes after a long long flight, meeting a friendly person at the reception who helps you is invaluable. Mr Ihab is great at his job and I think a real asset to the hotel. The rooms were clean and functional though a little worn down. Overall a very decent stay

I travel a lot for work and have become a little more particular about the service and accommodation cleanliness. This hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. The continental breakfast was nice and the staff was very helpful. Our room was nice and the turn down service was unexpected but a nice touch. A very nice place to...

It is good that the hotel provides an airport shuttle service, every hour on the hour, from the hotel. When you get out of the terminal, it is better for you to call the hotel. There is a phone inside the hotel shuttle booth. The hotel is about 15 minutes drive from the airport. Although it's relatively far from the...

Stayed at this hotel while attending a conference. Service was great. The Resturant did a nice job of letting me make changes to my meal to fit my diet. The "trolley" to the other hotels and to town was very convenient. All in all it was a great experience!

Stayed at this hotel for three nights on business. The hotel is close to my office and offered free parking which is extremely rare in the Bay Area.
