A big thank you to Ihab Margi who went above and beyond to accommodate my family who flew in for the wedding. He was always available and gave us great recommendations for things to...

My wife surprised me with a gathering for my 40th birthday. She reserved a section in their lounge for the night and everyone who helped us that night were great! They were very attentive, they were constantly asking us and our guest if we needed anything. Yes my wife paid a pretty penny but it was all worth it. The...

This is my third stay at this hotel and I can say that they are a friendly and welcoming bunch. The continental breakfast buffet is a delight. Not sure you'd want to have it every morning though - It's a buffet. I always look forward to having the combo pizza from the in house bar. I'd totally recommend, if you're...

The hotel itself is very nice both in the lobby, restaurant areas and the rooms themselves. The staff was friendly and professional, room service was quick and easy with a very nice selection of food. The food was also very good. Nice location to the interstate and state highway.

Stayed 3 nights while working in San Mateo. Was convenient to get to the office. Reception employees were kind and helpful. Shuttle to SFO is handy. Great sushi restaurant on site. No coffee shop or drug store in walking distance. Still a good choice.

Here for a conference at the hotel. Conference area is not huge (which I like). Property has three restaurant options, include a sushi, which is quite good. Staff are pleasant, great check-in host. Rooms are nicely equipped, and easy to work in. Work out area is moderate in size, but isn't one where they just converted a guest room. It...

Very nice upscale hotel in Foster City, California. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty and were very professional and accommodating.
