I liked the spacious and comfortable rooms - easily accommodated 2 adults and 2 kids. Rooms next to the highway can be noisy so request for the rooms away from it. Wifi came free if you are a Hilton Honors member otherwise there is a charge (which shouldn't be these days!).
The place is located close to the BART which can take you to San Francisco in about 40 minutes. There are a few places to eat and malls but you need a car to get to these. Overall with a car this hotel was a convenient base for us. Free parking was available and we never had problem finding a space.
What makes the hotel a stand out is the Club (huge fitness center) which has a tie up agreement with Hilton...the amenities, pools and acitivities are on par with most resorts. There is something for all to enjoy especially the fitness conscious. If I could5 review the Club separately I'd give it 5+ stars.
Caveat: There are ongoing hotel renovations that starts around 9am and just hammer away during the day. In fairness to the hotel management, we got a very good rate ($70) for the rooms and there is a sign board announcing renovations at the lobby. This is not a problem for early risers but my kids found it difficult as we had jet lag to cope with. When I requested for the renovation to start later, I was told it starts when the construction guys are ready to start!
