“The location - well? But .....”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

I have stayed here on numerous ocassions. First off the location isn't near anything, but the airport. There is a free shuttle to run you into town that stops at several spots. They also have a free hotel shuttle every 20 minutes to and from the airport. A car would make this location much more palatable. Front deak staff -They are ALWAYS on their game, no complaints. The bar and restaurant staff likewise. The food menu has some really tasty choices. If eating in the bar, make sure you score a bowl of their popcorn. Rooms are large and well appointed. Big flat screen tv and most rooms have a decent view of the Bay or the hills. Airconditioning/heating works well year around. The exercise room is a bit anemic. The running/ellipticals are in good shape, but the weight machine needs serious work. The dumbells, those that are left, have seen better days. All in all the exercise room is adequate. You can walk to restaurants, but other that the one across the inlet infront of the hotel or the dinner up the street, you are going to be on your feet for a while. There is a great little park a short walk from the hotel. It is at Coyote Point. It has a science theme and includes live animals and birds. Farily cheap to enter and while at the park, you can walk down to the docks to see the boats and a nice golf course is located there. A golf driving range is also near the hotel with a decent Mexican fare. As mentioned earlier, a car would make all the difference on the quality of the stay. Transportation aside, this is a fine hotel, with a wonderful staff, with quality accomodations, good food and drink and I can easily recommend it. If you are just passing through at the airport and need a place for one night, this is it!

Room Tip: Get a bayside view. You can watch planed arrive from all around the world

The room was very clean, the location was convenient to San Francisco and the price was right if you search for the right deal. I read some reviews that the front desk staff was not friendly but they were only partially correct. Virginia was especially nice to our family. She gave us a break on our parking charges when the gates did not work properly. She also gave us complimentary access to the internet. We were very pleased with her service.

I stayed for one night at the Hilton near San Francisco Internatl. Airport, which is 10 minutes away. The hotel is located right on the bay. There is a paved walking path that runs around the property. There is an underground parking garage. Self park is $18 a day. The hotel is very nice. Check in was very quick and easy. The lounge and restaurant were on the check in level. I did not use either so can't comment on them. The hotel also has a 24 hr. workout room and a small indoor swimming pool and hot tub. Our room was on the 6th floor with a view of the bay and towards the city. The room was clean and comfortable with a large flat screen TV and free wifi. It look like the hotel had been renovated. The only thing they forgot to improve was the bathroom floor and shower tiles. This looked a little dated, however, the sink area had been updated. I found the staff to be helpful. There was also a free airport shuttle. There are restaurants in downtown Burlingame,which was 5-10 minutes away, but not within walking distance. We ate at Sapore Italian which was reasonable and delicious. I would return to the Hilton again.

Hotel is located about 10 minutes from the airport.

The rooms have beautiful views of the bay and are very quite.

Breakfast is served at a restaurant with an equally awesome view.

Only downside is that everything you do is extra cost. Parking is $12, internet is $11, breakfast is $17.

But still the hotel is good value for money if you need a place near the airport.

I have stayed here before and the hotel is fine. Clean, nice staff, ect.... But I didn't park before. I live 4 hours away from the airport and we stay overnight when we fly. So usually we have someone drop us off. This time I am taking my 93year old Grandma to put her on a plane. I booked on Hotwire to see how it worked. You don't find out what hotel till you pay (non refundable) which is fine and when I got the Hilton I thought that is perfect. That is until I saw $18.00 for parking. So now I could have gone with another site and found a hotel that didn't charge for parking. Which to me is a sin. How are you supposed to get there? Carry your bags on your back? It is sort of like saying we charge to use the bathroom. Or like the airlines we charge for you to bring clothes to wear on your vacation. Color me silly but this is getting out of hand.Well I hope it is still clean and safe.

I had family stay here and they had a fabulous time here. The staff was extremely friendly to them and I was told they were more than willing to give advice, especially the concierge service. Their only gripe is that the BART system that is close by charges a lot, but of course the hotel has no control over that, but the hotels airport transportation was fantastic.
