I think this is a pretty typical Homewood Suites arrangement, so you get much of what you expect here. Good sized room with kitchen, microwave, refrigerator, stove-top, dishwasher, sofa, separate bedroom, and a bath/shower. The hotel also offers complimentary hot breakfast and an evening meal; I think the 'dinner' is just for weekdays. Free Wi-Fi is nice if you're toting a computing device or smartphone.
Price was about $120 per night which is not terrible for the Bay Area, and it includes shuttle service to and from SFO.
On the down side, the free breakfast is a free-for-all. Just not enough space in the dining area for the number of people in the hotel - so it's constant crush of bodies, too few seats, waits for food and drinks when they run out. The arrangement is so cramped that there is just no way to navigate this area without running into people. My guess is that they were counting on the outdoor seating, but since you're 100 yards from the Bay, it's cold and windy outside!
During our stay, one of the two elevators was inoperable - so we had long waits or took to the stairs. Only problem is that the stairs are really far from the elevator so it can involve some pretty long hikes depending on where your room is. To make matters slightly worse, the ice machine didn't work on our floor. So we had to deal with the elevator waits or hikes even more often. Just not idea - and not really up to par for a Homewood. I guess I'd say it's just "okay"; I'll probably look around a bit more before our next trip to the Bay Area.
