DoubleTree by Hilton San Francisco Airport
Ranked #7 of 12 Hotels in Burlingame
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This hotel is significantly above the government per-diem rate, yet they also want to charge $20 for parking, and $10 for internet (discounted as I'm a HHonors 'silver' member).

The rooms feel like they haven't been updated in 30yrs (old carpet, and wallpaper), and the room lighting is quite dim.

The rooms do appear to be clean, and the location is conveniently close to the airport, but to me, it's not worth the additional cost.

Also, being close to the train is not the best for light sleepers.

I had the best Bloody Mary in town at the 37 North Restaurant and Bar. I also had the chicken salad with generous portions of chicken that was moist and flavorful. My server/bartender, Rusty, was friendly and attentive. He went out of his way to make sure I had everything I needed. I definitely will return and try some of the other interesting items on the menu. I like the idea of everything being locally grown.

Yes, they charge for parking. As do most other airport hotels near here as otherwise folks abuse the lots. We did not have a car, so we were calmer than others. We got a good rate, though we wanted to go back on the way home and costs were out of our range. Our room was clean and nice. Breakfast was excellent! A manager's reception in the evening was nicely done. Service, given the huge numbers who were moving through here, was exceptional under the circumstances. Shuttle was great in both directions. Gym was surprisingly good. Internet worked fine for us. And the cookies were great!

The hotel was unimpressive, yet adequate to lay your head after a long flight. I would have given it a more generous rating but we were never informed that construction was taking place during our stay. Also, the shuttle doesn't run as frequently as it should for a hotel billing itself as an "airport location."

This location was close to SFO worked very well for our one-night stay. The price was right, the room was very clean. As we have a family of five, the hotel brought up a pull-out bed at no charge. The lobby and restaurant area are clean, modern and the breakfast was excellent. All-in-all, a very good hotel.

Geoffrey offered personalized service and his knowledge of food selection and specialty beverages was impressive. I have traveled internationaly and never felt so welcome by Geoffrey' professional service. His combination of warmth, attention and conversation made me feel like I was at home. I would highly recomend him at any hotel.

Had a great 10 day stay at Double Tree Burlingame. A Summit was held in the Hotel from August 30-September, ended staying for the remainder of the trip rather than transfer @ Union Square. Great staff and efficient.

Two persons need special mention: Butch Gayod from the Restaurant - excellent, attentive and personal service and a scintillating martini to die for by Geoffrey Ables by the Bar.

Would definitely be back if Im in the Bay Area for work or for leisure, with family and friends.

Room Tip: Choose the old wing, more spacious and cozy.
