“Close to airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Hotel was close to airport. Hotel was kept clean and neat. Close enough to San Francisco to see the sites. Would stay at this complex again. Room was clean and no problems with check in. Restaurant could have had a little more items to choose from and the continental breakfast was plentiful. Dropped off our rental care night before our flight and the shuttle picked us up and brought us back to the hotel. Had to make an appointment for the shuttle to the airport the next day and it was parked in front of our room waiting for us the morning of our checkout .

Everything went smoothly. The hotel is lovely, comfortable bed, very efficient and helpful staff. Parked my car for 2 weeks and spent a lot less for the room for one night than I would have for parking at SFO. I am not aware of other hotels that let you stay for 2 weeks....have parked for one week recently. Great shuttle, on time. The continental breakfast isn't all that great (the one at La Quinta was great, but they only let you park for free for one week), but I was not there for the breakfast.

This is the second time I stayed here. Close to the airport, great airport shuttle, friendly and helpful staff . Easy access to the Bart station to ride downtown. Restaurant was delirious. Very cool bar below the restaurant that you view the swimming pool. Shuttle bus picks you right up in front of your room.

Had a great experience with the room, perfectly clean, new bedding and towels, complimentary breakfast snack was good (bagels, coffee, fruit, oatmeal, toast, etc). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I couldn't sleep at night (which is the reason I was there for). Apparently a train goes by like every hour and blows the horn next door to the hotel, I could swear the thing was at my door! They should advise guest or install soundproof windows!

Very nice and beautiful. Comfortable beds. We enjoyed our stay. The restaurant meal was a plus. We stayed one week then on way back through we stayed in same one. The decoration was very nice. The redecoration was a nice touch. Internet was a plus for the kids.
