I had such a nice stay at The Dylan. I taught a course at a hospital a few blocks away so chose the Dylan for the location as I could walk and didn't need to rent a car. My stay surpassed my expectations. The hotel was originally a Travel Lodge but the owners have upgraded the rooms to the max! The bed and linens were exceptional, and everything is or is in the process of being remodeled. There is a nice breakfast each day, cookies in the afternoon, free newspaper..lots of little touches. The location is amazing..just a few minutes from BART and the airport. Even though it's very close to the airport, the hotel is quiet. There are lots of places to eat nearby. The best part of the hotel is the staff. The are so pleasant and accommodating. I look forward to staying at The Dylan again!

Room Tip: I chose a 'deluxe' room as they have an inside corridor and I was traveling alone. The delux...

We stayed at this hotel the night before an early departure from SFO. The room was compact but clean. And, they honored my request for a room facing the backside (quiet) side of the hotel. Free computer to log on to our airline's check in site and free printer. WIFI in the entire facility. Good breakfast included.

Room Tip: Book your room on the quiet side of the hotel...the backside

This wonderful hotel is about 3 blocks from the BART- Millbrae station and. 5 minute shuttle ride to SFO. The staff is VERY attentive and accommodating. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable. We had a restful night and were transported for our early morning flight on time. Will definitely stay here again when back in San Francicso!

I loved the Dylan. I would never stay anywhere else in the bay area, here is why:

The location is fantastic, just a 2 minute walk to the BART and Cal train station. And a 10 minute drive to the airport.

They have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on.

24 hour shuttle to the airport

The rooms are impeccable, cozy and nicely decorated

The staff is so kind and helpful, they even keep freshly baked cookies at the reception during the day.

Very affordable

They have a great breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: They have rooms that have had the bathrooms remodeled, so they are a little nicer than the older one...

We stayed here at the end of a great trip to wine country. We were expecting a very basic hotel close to the airport. For the price, I was hoping for clean. We got so much more. We were in a newly upgraded room with brand new fixtures, spacious accommodations and many extras. It was super clean. The grounds featured modern seating areas and new landscaping. Continental breakfast was good. Location for the traveler to SFO can't be beat. We dropped off the rental car in San Francisco and took the BART to the hotel. Would highly recommend.

I was flying in to SFO from New Zealand and needing to be back at the airport the next day to catch a bus up to Sonoma County from there. Therefore just somewhere to crash was needed but also somewhere near public transport for a quick adventure in the central city without dragging my suitcase along. BART station( Millbrae) is a 3 minute walk.Easy.The Dylan was perfect- free shuttle to get me from airport and next day take me back. Really comfortable bed.The shower was a bit too powerful- slightly painful. Heat pump worked well to heat up the room, it was noisy so I turned it off to sleep.Lovely staff at front desk who made me feel so welcome and gave me great tips for catching the BART to Embarcadero Station ( $4.30) and then visiting the Ferry Building, eating a light dinner there plus an excellent coffee,and looking at the Bay Bridge lights.Breakfast in the lobby was downmarket( paper plates and cups, plastic cutlery) but plenty to eat and all for free! Thanks so much Dylan.

I only had 12 hours to transfer, so I needed to find a place to take a break.
The Dylan at SFO is close from the airport and so clean!
Also, it gave us a great deal!
Mike at the reception was so so so great!

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
