I like Sofitel hotels, but the Redwood City property is a far cry from Sofitel NYC. In the first place, it's in Redwood City, not San Francisco. Technically, the name "San Francisco Bay" is correct, but it's misleading. The good news is that Redwood City is what we wanted. However, it might confuse the next traveler. The sink was almost...

I have now stayed at Sofitel hotels in several locations and this one a couple of times. I always find the staff well trained, friendly and efficient. The public spaces are nice and well maintained. and I found the room to be the same. The size of the rooms are generous and well furnished. The beds are comfy and I... More

I really love this hotel. The rooms are chic with style and all the necessary comfort, such as nifty night lights, desk, toiletries, robe, coffee maker. Love the duvet covers, so no wrestling with tucked in sheets and blankets,etc. (To the reviewer who said to bring your own top sheet: They wash the duvet cover, not the whole cover.) The... More

I stayed here while visiting some clients in the area. . . and it was almost more than I needed. I usually just find a reasonable hotel at a mid-level price, clean, decent amenities on quick travel like this ... I do not need much more. The Sofitel had a "hip" and active bar / lounge, nice lobby and great... More

Although the staff is great, the grounds are nice and the bed was comfy, there are some concerns I'd like to share about our stay. The parking garage is open to anyone who wants to enter, even the local teenagers on their skateboards. A guest parking garage is not a park and should not be tolerated. They do post a... More

I have stayed here a number of times over the years, but it has been a while, probably about 4 years since I last stayed. I had it set in my mind that absence makes the heart grow fonder and my memories were probably making me think that it was better than it really was and that when I stayed... More
