This hotel is very close to SFO and is directly across one of the runways. Sound proofing was not very good and one could hear the rumbling and rattling during every take off. This Aloft only provided one bottle water per room each day knowing that there were two persons staying. I always received 2 bottles at other Starwood properties,... More

A new and fairly large Aloft. Our room looked out to the airport runway (nice for watching takeoff) and highway 101. The sound proofing is fair but there is still rumble from takeoffs. Unfortunately on our visit the pool was unexpectedly closed. The big negative to this and the Westin next door is that the shared parking lot is also... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We sincerely apologize for the pool being closed and for the inconvenience our parking facility has caused you. Our pool was temporarily closed for cleaning, but was open for guests within a few hours. We hope this did not throw any of your plans off schedule, but... More

The Aloft is designed for the younger business traveller. They have basic rooms with what could be called a modern look. The room itself is average size, not roomy. The closet is very small. The bathroom has a door which slides shut but does not lock and is designed to not close all the way with about a 1/2 inch... More

My wife and I brought our two nephews and our neice for a weekend trip to San Francisco before we all move across country from eachother. Upon check in on May 22nd, the lady at the desk was absolutely wonderful. Treated us like she was genuinely happy to see us. The room, 120, was great! Very close to parking, lobby... More

Greeted at the front desk, which is just inside the front door- - - no long walk to find check-in. Room and bath are sleek and modern. Nice bar area for an unwinding drink. Easy walk next door to the Westin for a decent dinner. Good shuttle to the airport.

I love the Aloft hotels and this one is no exception. We arrived late and left early so didn't have much time to explore the hotel, but the room was clean and nicely decorated and had lot's of space. Check-in and check-out was fast and staff really nice. Shuttle to the airport worked great. Would definitely stay here again if... More

If you need or want to stay near San Francisco International Airport, for whatever reason, you should definitely consider Aloft! There are properties with more amenities in the neighborhood, but they aren't nearly as affordable. And Aloft does have pretty decent snacks and drinks, although the menu for both is limited. An ace in the hole is the selection of... More

I assume most people stay at the hotel because it is near SFO. But I would recommend for locals looking for fun getaway. The hotel is fairly new and the decor is modern, young, and hip. Enjoyed hanging out in the bar as well as the outdoor court. And even the small pool has a nice aesthetic. The king room... More

Very convenient to Millbrae and SFO if you've got an early morning flight. Decent bed, reasonably helpful staff, free airport shuttle. Didn't have a rental car to deal with, so no comments on parking availability. The clubby lobby area experience was an interesting twist but felt a bit out of place given the hotel location and the more basic and... More
