“Great Park & Stay for Locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed HGI SFO Airport North prior to a family vacation and chose the Park & Stay package. Great choice, considering the cost of parking at SFO Long Term is $20/day. Same price as parking at SFO and we enjoyed a nice evening at the hotel before our flight. The staff is very friendly. Check in was fast and the staff was courteous. Breakfast was great and the staff was excellent. The hotel is clean and well maintained. We had the same shuttle driver going to & returning from SFO, a very helpful and friendly man. Going to stay here next time we are headed out of town on vacation.

Room Tip: King room with hot tub and small sofa bed (1 person size) is convenient for a family.

Was disappointed to find someones room service tray with leftovers right outside our room door upon checking in. It was still there the next morning when we left. Also the shower curtain had some kind of gross snot on it, I didn't look too closely since I was afraid to find out anymore about it. For $300.00 a night I was counting on a good continental breakfast, but was told it would cost $12.95! Great location for being only 2 miles from the airport. Overall, a poor experience for 1 night.

Absolutely lucked out in securing this hotel- for under $500 a night. We were pleasantly surprised by the whole stay there.

We used a super shuttle sedan but you can actually just use a BART from downtown and then connect with the free airport shuttle to the hotel. A sedan can cost anything from $50-90 from downtown. BART costs 18.65 round trip.

Tried to upgrade using my HHonor points- which the kindly staff informed me they would usually do but as they are absolutely booked out Mondays-Thursdays they could not accommodate this request. However, relaxing lounge atmosphere, free fruit and complimentary hot drinks with the tube tuned to the World Cup made up for it in spades. Wi Fi is also free for HHonors Gold and above members and free per day for regular guests.

Our room was bright,spacious and uber clean. It was hard to leave as it was so homey. There's laundry and a gym available as well. Parking is free for those who choose to drive.

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed every bit of it. The Hilton's strength is in the complimentary services, free Wi Fi and especially its staff- from the front desk to the shuttle bus driver, everyone was so helpful.

Room Tip: All rooms are actually pretty good. There's a pantry in case you get late night munchies craving...

Recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn . Used the park and fly reservation. The Hilton was a great place to stay. Staff and amenities are excellent. This travel option at this hotel , and a few others, is getting a bit pricey though.

Booked here for a stay yesterday after having searched the ridiculously priced accommodations in the city of San Francisco. This is a great alternative. Only about 6 miles into the city. This hotel includes free parking and wifi. Neither of which is common in the city or even the airport.
It is located in a quiet industrial area just a couple minutes drive from the quaint downtown South San Francisco.
Check in was very quick and cookies and coffee are offered on a self serve basis in the lobby. There is also a onsite restaurant but I would suggest you drive into SSF for a bite.
In room amenities include a microwave, fridge, and Keurig coffee maker. Bathroom has a very powerful hair dryer and the products are Neutrogena.
We would definitely return here. Only interaction we had was with the young lady at the front desk. Very friendly, efficient and helpful when we asked some questions about possibly grabbing a cab into the city.

Being a global traveler experience numerous types of hotels this was exceptional. Due to cancelled flight stayed here, the quality of staff and hotel made for a pleasant situation from difficult one. Great room, food and gym.

We left a wedding in a town about 70 miles away with an infant. Needed to check in early. Very helpful and amenable. Good visit to San Francisco as a result. Check-in crew was friendly to our check-in. Felt that we were definitely valued as customers.
