This hotel is great. Right near SFO with shuttle service. The hotel was recently renovated so the rooms are clean and new. The staff is so friendly from Michelle at the front desk to the GM Chadi. If you get a bay view room, it is gorgeous on a sunny day.

Shuttle from SFO was quick. Clean room and good breakfast for the kids the next morning. Great view of the bay at breakfast. Had both firm and soft pillows (labeled) which was very appreciated. Staff was happy and helpful. I would stay here again.

Hotel is located close to the airport and the price for accommodation is reasonable especially in comparison to other hotels in this part of town. Additionally you can have a breakfast included. Rooms are average and only from the second floor you can enjoy the bay view. But this is probably still the best choice close to the airport in... More
