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

It was a standard business hotel. I stayed here once in April 2016 and then again in May 2016. You can tell that since I have stayed at this hotel more than once, it meets my requirements for business travel. The room for comfortable and clean. There were lots of outlets to charge my two cell phones, two tablets, and... 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

Stayed at this hotel while attending a conference. Service was great. The Resturant did a nice job of letting me make changes to my meal to fit my diet. The "trolley" to the other hotels and to town was very convenient. All in all it was a great experience!

Stayed at this hotel for three nights on business. The hotel is close to my office and offered free parking which is extremely rare in the Bay Area. Check-in was very quick and the staff were very helpful. The room is nice, comfortable and clean but needs a little modernization. The Internet was difficult to logon to as it look... More
