We stayed 1 night so my wife could attend a High School reunion. The room was very comfortable, clean and quite. We didn't take advantage of the on premises restaurant but the buffet Saturday morning looked really good. The hotel is in a great location right off the Freeway and not too far from the airport. I would definitely stay... More

I was provided accommodation at this hotel by Southwest airlines when my flight was cancelled and I had to stay overnight at SFO. At first glance, the hotel seemed fine. The front desk was prompt but no one helped us carry our bags to the room. Alas! Anyway, the room given to us was spacious and clean. The bathroom floor... More

Stayed here for a long weekend. Restaurants within walking distance. Close to airport. Rooms comfy. Renovated two years ago. Great front desk agents. Very helpful. Shuttle to SFO. Can take shuttle back to airport and catch BART to downtown avoiding trying to park in a congested area.

Sometimes after a long long flight, meeting a friendly person at the reception who helps you is invaluable. Mr Ihab is great at his job and I think a real asset to the hotel. The rooms were clean and functional though a little worn down. Overall a very decent stay

I travel a lot for work and have become a little more particular about the service and accommodation cleanliness. This hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. The continental breakfast was nice and the staff was very helpful. Our room was nice and the turn down service was unexpected but a nice touch. A very nice place to... More

It is good that the hotel provides an airport shuttle service, every hour on the hour, from the hotel. When you get out of the terminal, it is better for you to call the hotel. There is a phone inside the hotel shuttle booth. The hotel is about 15 minutes drive from the airport. Although it's relatively far from the... More
