Stayed here for a night while visiting the San Francisco area. The hotel was a little out of my way, but everything was great. The staff was lovely and everything seemed very clean, just as it should be.

We stayed here because of the Hilton name and its proximity to San Francisco. It was less expensive than staying in the city and just over the Bay Bridge. Parking was less expensive than in the city as well. Traffic was congested the whole time we were there, which I was told is normal. The staff was super friendly at... More

The front desk staff are friendly and super-helpful, as is the breakfast room staff. Ariana at reception and Pako at breakfast were outstanding! The room was clean and comfi with free wifi, mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. The... More

Housekeepers always frowning, didn't respect our 'do not disturb' placard. Restaurant offers weekend breakfast until 12pm, but this kitchen lady walked around and asked everyone at 11:20 if they were finished eating. This same grumpy lady slammed the waffle iron in front of me when I did not operate it correctly, scolding me with a permanent scowl. All food was... More

Thank you mmuramo for your recent review of the Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge. I am sorry that you experienced less than friendly service from our staff during your stay. Having friendly service is most important and something that we strive for consistently and anything less is unacceptable. Our breakfast is opened later on Sunday until 11:30AM but... More

The lobby and our room were as expected and nice. The complimentary business office was better than most, solid and presented well. The complimentary oatmeal cookies were a nice snack. The price was good for the location. There is no pool, but a built in Jacuzzi with an outdoor seating area. Good sun and lots of wind off the bay.... More

I wrote a review of this hotel after staying here the first week of back to back trips to Oakland for work. While the manager responded saying they apologized for my issues during the first trip, they assured me they would have those issues resolved by the next time I stayed at their hotel. Apparently, the manager did not realize... More

If you are visiting San Francisco and want to stay outside of the $$$ of the city. This is a great choice. There is easy transportation by the BART into Frisco and then using the MUNI pass you can get to anywhere you want to go very easily. The hotel is quite and clean.

This Hilton Garden Inn, ideally located, has been nicely upgraded, and provides great service to guests. I would highly recommend this hotel as a "first choice" place to stay when visiting the Bay area.
