“Great location by SFO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Typical HGI--really comfy, solid and quiet. I had dinner there as well and it was actually pretty good! Shuttle to SFO was easy to pick up as well. Very convenient. I'll be staying here again. Oh and there are some good restaurants near by and you can run/walk along the water. Awesome bonus!! And check out DT Burlingame just a mile away.....

My stay at the Hilton Garden Inn was perfectly acceptable: the room was comfortable and clean (if less-than-modern), and the hotel was conveniently located near the airport and roughly halfway between the city and Silicon Valley. Having experienced very positive Hilton Garden Inn stays in NYC in recent months, I was a bit disappointed by the customer service at this location: the staff provided basic assistance if asked but were not warm, welcoming, or proactively helpful. Overall, my stay was good, but I'll likely try a different property during future visits to the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side of the hotel overlook Route 101, but the hotel is far enough away from the fr...

Stayed here for two nights for work-related trip. The room was a nice size, well-apportioned, and clean. The gym looked nice (cardio equipment and some free weights) and there was an in-door pool. Airport shuttle ran on-time. Didn't eat at the hotel but there were room service options (until 11p) and a good-looking breakfast.

We stayed here for 1 night before heading off on an early trip.
Very clean, very friendly and overall a comfortable stay. The room was nicely decorated and immaculate and there were great touches such as a lounge with snacks etc. for Hilton Honors members.
They run a regular courtesy bus to SFO airport which saved us a lot of hassle with parking – we decided to park at the Hilton as the rate was pretty good that day.

The hotel is walking distance to Kincaid's restaurant just on the water front. 5 mins walk or so. Very easy!

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.
