Only used hotel as a "day/evening room" so did not actually stay the night, but I was very impressed overall (very helpful friendly chap at reception).
Great sized room, very very clean and tidy.
Extremely close to San Francisco Airport (free shuttle took about 8 minutes to get to hotel), and even closer to the Millbrae BART station (2 minute easy flat walk from hotel), took approx 15-20min into downtown San Francisco.
All in all, if you want Great value for money, be very, very close to the Airport and yet an easy quick train into downtown then this IS the place to stay.
I would not hesitate to stay here again, and highly recommend The Dylan.

Was on my way to Mexico for Christmas, however got stranded in SF for a couple of days. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The price is about $100.00 per night and well worth the $$$. The rooms were clean, quite, and loaded with ammenities. They offer free high end continental breakfast and internet access. I had to print out my boarding pass and they allowed me to use their printer free of charge. I was absolutely exhasusted from the headaches at SFO Airport, however the stay at at The Dylan made up for the hassles. The only complaint is that they did not have coffee cups in the room to go along with the in room coffee maker, but not a big deal. Great value and great staff. I would stay again if I ever land in SF. I Highly recommend The Dylan.

we stayed there as we had an early flight but if you could stay if planning to visit San Francisco - public transport is good from there.

Easy access to the local public transport, excellent location by the airport, close to restaurants. The staff gave us great recommendations for restaurants and attractions. Clean, quality rooms with beds and bedding you would expect to find in a much more expensive hotel. Highly recommended!

The hotel is conveniently located near the SFO airport, 200 meters from the BART (San Francisco's MRT). Across the street is a shopping center with a Walgreens Drug.Store, a supermarket, and restaurants. A In and Out hamburger joint is within walking distance. The rooms are clean and full of all the amenities. Free wifi in the room. Free airport transfer by hotel van. Helpful front desk personnel . Free breakfast including waffles. I would stay again...and highly recommend it.

Stayed for 1 night and would happily stay longer. Great location for both the airport and transport to downtown san francisco. Clean rooms with above average amenities. If you don't mind travelling to get into downtown then this is a great choice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Dylan at SFO, proud winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016, is a newly remodeled 58 room boutique hotel. They are conveniently located just 1 mile from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and feature a free SFO Airport shuttle bus to and from the airport. They are within 100 yards of the Millbrae BART/CalTrain station, gateway to downtown San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Our delicious complimentary breakfast features hot items that change daily, including: bacon, sausage, eggs, omelets, casseroles and potatoes. We also offer other tasty options: fresh waffles, fresh baked muffins, scones, danishes & cinnamon rolls, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels & cream cheese, toast, hard-boiled eggs, ham & cheese, juice and freshly brewed coffee. Complimentary fresh baked cookies, coffee and tea are available the afternoon. In 2017 The Dylan Hotel at SFO brought back mid-century modern with contemporary vibes through their recent remodel of the exterior, lobby, reception and breakfast room. The entrance is encased with eco-friendly siding and accented with a retro-feel hexagon patterned coreteen steel. Step into the lobby to the sound of subtle electronic jazz music quietly playing overhead as you take in the natural elements of the living wall and tree trunk table. Head to the reception, and enjoy the San Francisco murals behind the smoked glass and wood-grained shelving while checking in with our guest service agent. We offer complimentary Nescafe cappuccinos to enjoy while showing off your Scrabble skills on the giant wall game. In the morning enjoy a buffet breakfast featuring housemade granola, fresh baked muffins, waffles or some eggs and sausages along with many other goodies. While enjoying breakfast or waiting for our complimentary SFO airport shuttle, sit and admire the bigger than life sixties vibe wall art with starlet beauties and super heroes or just watch the wall mounted tablets streaming hip, retro movies. Their newly renovated guest rooms display the dreamy artwork of famous surrealist photographer, Thomas Barbey. Each guest room features all American made furniture with built-in USB, plush pillow top beds, 40 inch LED and much more. The newly renovated bathrooms have imported Spanish porcelain tile and rain showerheads. ... more   less
