Stayed here because we were attending a friend's function in the area and we didn't want to make the early drive the day of the event. The lobby and common areas were very polished. The service, the bar, and the cafe were all excellent, despite it being a relatively busy weekend with holiday parties and a children's soccer tournament in... More

If there's one thing you can count on at a full service business hotel, it is a breakfast buffet. The rooms, staff and facility were as expected, and that's a good thing, but I was shocked that there was no buffet. That's the purpose of TA, to let other road worriers know.

Each night I was kept awake by the parties going on downstairs. I was 6 floors up and I felt like I was next door. Everything else was great. The beds are ridiculously comfortable, the staff was polite (of the interactions I had), and it is in a great location. Just don't stay in a weekend or don't get a... More

First impression 5 star. Examination saw peeling wallpaper in large suite, stained rug, no room service till six am. Still would try again..no discounts. Maid and room service sucky. I'd rather spend less and stayby the ocean or bay

This Sofitel is described as a corporate resort because it is surrounded by technology parks. If you are staying in a hotel anywhere on the peninsula next to the bay you are going to be expensing your stay. My room was spacious with a view of the lagoon and pool. There is a Keurig machine and complimentary bottled water in... More

I must have been lucky or tired when I stayed here in October. Since my last experience was so positive I upgraded to a suite as I was traveling with my husband. The room was okay though the furnishings were worn and on the shabby side. The bed and pillow were very comfortable. Only 1/3 of the hotel has wired... More

Stayed at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay for the BlogHer Pro Conference. It was exceptionally clean but in a bit of an isolated location. Great for people that are visiting Silicon Valley. I found the guest services to be really helpful. Airport pick up is coordinated at the airport. You have to call from one of the vestibules to the... More

Very nice Hotel ,Rooms are lovely and spacious. Restaurant has excellent food, We used both the Buffet and the regular Restaurant, they were both above average. The Sofitel is inside a Business Park Just a few minutes from Hwy 101 in The Peninsula.

My family and I stayed here for a week recently. The hotel is very nice with modern finishes. I can't comment on the facilities, such as the gym or pool because I never used them. The room was nice and clean. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the service was excellent. Everything that you would expect from a... More

For some of you, this will be a positive review -- an early-morning fire alarm revealed to us that the hotel was full of small furry creatures (all well behaved, all on leashes), who continued to march through lobbies and rooms throughout our visit. It surprised me. I had imagined the Sofitel, especially at the prices, to be either a... More
