The checking staff are fantastic, the rooms are good and the bed is great. This must be the only chain hotel that doesn't have a buffet breakfast, the service at breakfast is poor and the food for the cost you are paying is not up to the class of the hotel. The hotel is quite some distance from downtown (by... More

This hotel was a great place for a business function, with lots of communal areas, a smart bar area, excellent gym facility and pleasant staff. The bar / food prices were expensive but the food was good. The rooms were really spacious and well laid out.

Another fine Sofitel hotel with excellent service and fine guest and public rooms. Not too close to SF airport, but very close or near the heart of Silicon Valley. Fine staff. We did not stay long enough to try dining, but based on quality of baked goods and juices in gift shop, we would imagine food would be very good,... More

Had a pleasant stay in this hotel but found it to be busy and stuff on convention days. Hotel is very clean and a shuttle trip to shops and food locations. It's a long distance to get downtown but not too bad if your going for the entire day. I would have no problem in staying in this hotel again.... More

We stayed for one night in August and I was impressed by the service and quality of the hotel and staff. Staff was friendly and helpful, the food in the restaurant was excellent, and the amenities in the rooms are very nice. I Will definitely stay here again

This is my regular hotel whenever I'm on business in silicon valley. Good rooms, excellent bar and attentive bar staff, and well located for many nearby tech and biotech companies. I view this as a hotel to stay at if you are on business, rather than as a couple or on vacation - there's nothing here except offices, so don't... More

My family stayed at this Sofitel while attending a local event in San Mateo. We have stayed at other Sofitels in Queenstown, NZ, and Hanoi, Vietnam, and had high expectations of this hotel. While not as elegant or luxurious as the others, the Sofitel SF Bay was comfortable, quiet, and well maintained. Except for our server in the lobby restaurant... More

We booked this hotel as a convenient stopover on our way back to San Francisco Airport. We assumed it would be a typical business type hotel but were delighted to be proved wrong. The highlight of the hotel is the restaurant. Not only was the food beautifully prepared and served but the staff were attentive in a genuine way. Kenny,... More
