“Great service and lovely accommodation!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Incredibly convenient to SFO and wonderful service, very comfortable, clean and attractive accommodations. The bed and sheets were great. Mike, the night manager, is exceptional. Free parking, free internet, free breakfast--you can't find better value at this quality elsewhere. I love this place.

Room Tip: My room was on the first floor and it was fine.

I had a very nice stay at the Dylan twice in April of 2013. Nice room. Good patio. Friendly staff. My guy loved the free breakfast. There was a slight noise from the train and some loud teenagers having a party down the hall but we slept through that. My only complaint was the first time we stayed the water in the shower was cold but perfectly fine the first time. Great hotel.

Having booked this solely due to its next door location to SFO and based on the reviews, all I really wanted was a convinient one night stay in order to catch an early flight the following morning. First of all we were upgraded to a "suite" without asking for it and without extra charge. The hotel looked like it had been refurbished just recently. The room was spacious and modern and the bed very comfortable. By checkout at 5am the next morning, the receptionist was also very friendly and helpful. Offered us to print boarding passes if needed and even offered us some continental breakfast at that time of the morning! Whereas airport hotels are often a rip off, I found this hotel good value for money.

We arrived on the 4th of July and almost immediately headed into the city for the festivities. Hotel is very convenient to BART (which was on strike) as well as the Caltrain (which we were able to use). Hotel is clean and comfortable with friendly staff and shuttle service was quick and easy...but has to be scheduled, so make sure and get that taken care of the night before if leaving on an early flight. Great place to stay for an evening.

Room Tip: There is a newer section attached to the original hotel - rooms were updated and very new. This are...

We had a layover of 9 hours over night in San Francico. Therefore, we wanted a hotel close to the airport, not too expensive, good service, clean and comfortable bedding. At The Dylan we got all that. The shuttle bus picked us up, check in was quick and efficient, the night clerk recomanded an excellent diner down the street, the beds were very comfortable and the linen was of very nice quality and softness. The bathroom had been recently renovated and was very clean and well equipped. At 5 am in the moring, again check out was fast, there was some fruit and coffee even though breakfast was not yet scheduled to be served, and the shuttle bus delivered us back on time for our connecting flight.
Overall our experience at The Dylan was pleasant and we can fully recomand this hotel for a good night's rest close to the airport and a reasonable rate.

Nice quiet area but very close to a BART station and is ideal to explore the city. Ideal for exploring what the city has to offer yet have a restful comfortable room away from the hustle of city life.

We booked at the Dylan knowing we were going to arrive late (midnight) and check out early at (8am) so we decided to look for a cheap yet clean looking hotel.
Arriving late and with the airline losing our baggage we thought that we may be too late for the shuttle service after a quick call to Mike he assured me the shuttle was on its way.

Arriving at the hotel in the early morning we were greeted by a very smiley Mike who checked us in and helped take all our bags to our room- Having a pregnant wife and a sleeping child over my shoulder this was very helpful.

Upon getting to our room we noticed that one of my daughters jandles had come off somewhere between the shuttle and our room. I went back to the Reception and reported this. Mike told me not to worry I will sort it out. The next morning we went to breakfast and there was an envelope waiting for us with the jandle- Best service we had honestly experienced.

The room itself was modern and clean, that is all we wanted.

The added bonus was the breakfast in the morning which was actually very pleasant.

Overall very happy with our choice.

The Dylan at SFO, proud winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2016, is a newly remodeled 58 room boutique hotel.

They are within 100 yards of the Millbrae BART/CalTrain station, gateway to downtown San Francisco and the Silicon Valley.

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
