We stayed here for a simple night before an early flight across the country from SFO. We did not need more than a room so we cannot comment on the other amenities. We also kept our rental car until the next morning. It is very clean, quiet, and comfortable...
We have stayed at other hotels in the area for this purpose, and for the price this has been the best!

This is a typical HGI, which is to say I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again if in the area. Convenient free shuttle to SFO, which made going into town easy via BART.

Clean room, standard amenities. Neighborhood amenities are few and far between, but that is the consequence of staying in this part of Burlingame/Millbrae.

The full cooked-to-order breakfast is rather impressive, I had complementary breakfast passes for both nights I stayed, but the stated price is a little expensive.

My only gripe (and this is not exclusive to HGI SFO) is that the room services trays stay in the hallways a little bit longer than I'm comfortable with. Hotels that have room service should do a better job of scanning the hallways and removing service items as soon as humanly possible.

Summary: I would stay at this hotel again.
This hotel is 2 years old and immaculate. Room was typical Hilton decor. The shower had a rubber mat for the tub (which many hotels forget to include) and a decent shower fixture.
The breakfast buffet (extra) has a good selection and cooked to order eggs, pancakes, etc. Reasonably priced if you want a full breakfast.
The indoor pool and whirlpool looked like new. Pool was 85 degrees, which is a bit cool for my taste (a web search suggests 88 degrees should be minimum for young children and elderly). The whirlpool was about 102, which was perfect for me.
The exercise room has five machines (treadmill, elliptical) and set of dumbbells, but no multi-use weight machine.
The only hitches in an otherwise nice experience was that the room door look did not like any of the programmed keys that we tried. This required two trips to the lobby and moving to another room. However, they gave me a coupon for breakfast because of the inconvenience.
The soda vending machines did not accept bills or credit cards (only coins and debit cards), which required another trip to the lobby. The prices are cheaper in the lobby "pantry" than in the vending machines anyway.
Overall, this hotel is equal or better than many more expensive hotels in the area. I gave it 4 stars because it isn't special enough to rate 5 stars.

We stopped here for one night in prep of an early Sfo departure. Very neat, clean and friendly with a great staff. I would stay here again, even for a visit to the San Francisco area. There is a 24 hr cafe next door, but the real food options are in Burlingame. You need a car. The shuttle is very prompt and comfortable to the airport.

I would recommend a visit to Burlingame. All of the upscale stores are there, including a convenient Apple store.

Room Tip: Did not use the pool or the spa. They also look clean and inviting.

This is a great property overall.

PROS:
-Hotel was super clean. Everything seemed brand new in my room
-Extremely quiet
-Staff could not have been more accommodating especially in the on site restaurant.
-Shuttle service to SFO

CONS:
-If you need to be close to SFO this airport is a great choice. If you are commuting anywhere else just be aware that traffic in the morning is brutal. Allow yourself extra time. This is no fault of the hotel of course, just something to be aware of.
-The hotel has the standard HGI restaurant on site which is good because there is very little in the way of restaurants, etc around the hotel.

Overall a great choice close to the airport.

Stay here after a long flight from Europe. Shuttle bus ran about every 20 minutes so I didn't wait long for pickup. Check-in was quick and friendly.
Room was standard but well maintained and clean. Comfy bed! Nice and quiet even with the freeway and airport near by. Free wireless internet that was truly high speed.
Did not use the pool or restaurant.
For the area, great value. I plan on staying again.

We stayed here because we had an early flight out of the airport. The room was clean. Bed was nice. We were close to restaurants in Burlingame. We did not need much, as we were leaving the next day. Airport was only a few minutes away and the hotel was quiet. We did not need anything more. It completely met our needs.

Room Tip: go for a high floor away from the elevators
