I stayed at the Sofitel in Redwood City on numerous occasions while working on a project out of San Francisco. The room was clean, beds comfortable and staff very friendly. I ate at the bar a couple times and found the food decent (and not as overpriced as other hotel bars I've been to). I ended up working from the... More

This is a very nice, comfortable place to stay in REDWOOD City. Since we live we don't stay, but we do recommend it to our friends who want to stay in REDWOOD CITY. It has a nice restaurant and bar, and the room are nicely decorated. It is quiet, and if you have car its not far from town and... More

The rooms were average. Dirty carpet. Rooms need a mini fridge. Lobby and Bar area could be refreshed. The staff and housekeeping/maintenence was great. Did not eat at the resturant so no comment. Expensive for what we got! .

I stayed in Sofitel for a four day business conference in the area. It is a good hotel for short business trips but it ends there. The pool is tiny and all it needs is three people to go in and it is full. If your room is facing the pool side, the bar music keeps you awake for a... More

We stayed 4 nights in late July, in the area to attend a wedding. The staff is very attentive and professional, including the top-hatted doormen - a classy touch. We were upgraded to a spacious junior suite with a beautiful view on high floor and enjoyed hours reading in the room in between gatherings with friends and wedding events. The... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for 5 nights (business/pleasure) and really liked it. The hotel has a definite business service feel to it, with clean modern decor and generally excellent quality of staff and service. If I had a recommendation to the hotel, it would be to make the pool area a little less overlooked (maybe a couple more palm... More

Stayed at various hotels, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale & San Jose. This is probably one of the nicer ones I've had the chance to stay in. Its a great hotel, nice and comfortable and definitely above average for the area and the US in general. Generally a business hotel with Electronic Arts and Oracle nearby. The surroundings are beautiful with the... More

Very friendly staff with a good location near Palo Alto but not at the Palo Alto price. I thought that the room was spacious but could have used a better cleaning. The carpet was dirty and stained near the rooms entry. The staff was friendly and I thought the lobby area was very clean and inviting. They do charge for... More

I actually ended up staying here because I got a half-off rate from Hotwire.com in the middle of the week, and consequently this hotel was infinitely better than the awful place I stayed in Carmel that was $100 more expensive subsequent nights. It overlooks water, has a very elegant lobby, bar, and restaurant (they had a wonderful sampling of some... More
