“Still as nice as 10 years ago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This is a sweet place when you get stuck at SFO. It's all inclusive with restaurants and pleasant environment. You can't hear the planes coming and going.

This property has continued to improve itself...furnishings updated, carpets well kept...a reliable choice

My loving adorable husband tends to snore...the additional pull out bed in the suite provided me with a few hours of much needed rest after longs hours of driving. We came from Canada for a stay in San Francisco and was pleased the hotel was easily accessible from the airport.

This hotel was way over-priced for what you got. The rooms were dated and not very clean. The carpeting was sticky, as if something spilled had just been left and not cleaned up. We had reserved two rooms but only one of the reservations showed up in their system so we had to wait for the second room to become available. The staff was not friendly. There were only two luggage carts for the entire hotel so we had to make several trip to carry our luggage from car to room because the carts were occupied. There was no free WIFI which was extremely irritating because the room rates were high enough to have purchased to the entire WIFI system. We would not stay in this hotel again. Even the "made to order" breakfast was only mediocre and not worth the high price of the room.

Room Tip: If you have stayed at other Embassy Suites, you will find that this one does not compare in a good w...

The room was clean and the staff was friendly.
But we'd just stayed in another Embassy Suites 2 days before, and the contrast was striking.
Airplanes were really loud. Needs better sound protection.
Sofa bed was badly tilted.
Guest laundry
was a disaster, as half the washers and dryers were out of order, and the others kept eating my quarters--three trips to the lobby to get my money back. The staff was super helpful about this issue, thanks!
Breakfast buffet ran out of some items and the layout was disorganized.
Balcony door wouldn't latch.
Just a lot of little things that added up to a not-bad but not-great experience.

Looked for about three months before selecting this hotel. Took the grandson to San Francisco to Kaepernicks football camp. Was trying to find something close to the city that met our criteria and embassy suites fit the bill serrated room and tv for the boy and close to everything in SF. Had a nice clean room a little outdated but very clean and comfortable

The rooms have poor sound insulation. We were waken up several times by music/TV/talking in the next room in the middle of the night. The breakfast was a mass production with lots of people. We had a hard time finding a table to eat breakfast.

We chose this hotel as it was an airport hotel. We were leaving early in the morning so this was the place to stay. The staff was exceptional, they were so friendly and very helpful. All done with a smile. The evening reception was a treat. Breakfast was better than average and a good send off for a very long flight home. The rooms were average but clean. The driver of the shuttle to the airport was so friendly, always explaining where our next stop was and when we would get to the airport. There are not any eating places in the area except at the hotel. The food at this restaurant was quite expensive. We had three grandchildren with us so it was not a good place for them as far as eating goes. We would stay here again if flying out of San Francisco.
