It's close to my parents and I just got a smashing deal online. So far it has been an excellent stay, pool time was lovely and the room is very quiet, clean and comfortable. The Staff is fabulous, I will update my review if I eat a meal here but so far I have enjoyed my stay very much. Parking... More

Very clean and well kept hotel. Wonderful free van/shuttle service on the hour to Airport. But beware only hold 6-7 ppl and first come first served. In less than 25 mins you can be at Airport and then on your way on the BART (subway system) into downtown San Francisco. Beware there is nothing much around this hotel as it... More

We spent a night at the hotel after the end of our 2 week holiday in the US. The proximity to the airport was the attraction for us but we soon found that this a top rate 5 star hotel. It has a business hotel feel. We had 2 connecting rooms which was adequately sized and we had a fridge... More

After a $90.00 cab ride to the hotel, as their free shuttle was not operating, no one to help with bags, no one to welcome you. I had to say to the door man if I should organise my own bags. As a platinum member Sofitel is my preferred hotel around the world, so I had no expectations from this... More

I stay at the Sofitel a lot, due to business travel. The people there are wonderful and they go out of their way to make you feel at home. There is none more hospitable than the shuttle driver, David. A wonderful Iranian man, who's patient and customer-centric approach leaves you feeling great about your trip. David goes out of his...

It was a really good stay. The staff are truly friendly, not just "customer service" friendly. The room was clean and modern and everything worked. The bed and pillows were great. Be aware that "good" wifi costs extra. And you may not fill hip enough after walking through the lobby lounge. :-)

Beginning with the friendly greeting and an opening of the front door by the doorman, my experience at the Sofitel in Redwood City was first rate. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the service is good and the food served in the restaurant is delicious and well presented. I highly recommend this fine establishment.
