I chose to stay at the Sofitel after finding a good rate on Expedia and hearing good things about the brand.
The hotel is conveniently located off of the freeway, which is great if you're looking to head into San Francisco. It's in a business park which isn't the most beautiful scenery, but does have a lagoon.
The hotel itself is very nice. The lobby and bar area are classy-looking, and the giftshop/bakery downstairs is adorable.
When we opened the door to our room, it was like being hit in the face with a hot, wet washcloth. There was a bad, musty odor and it was incredibly humid. We turned the A/C up as much as possible which helped, but the condensation on the windows was so bad that our windows were literally dripping with water onto the windowsill.
Housekeeping came to bring new towels, but we did not receive any additional toiletries once we ran out. The bed was very comfortable, but the smell and the humidity in the air was pretty unbearable. We were not in the room except at night to sleep. I don't know if this is an issue in all of the rooms, but if I wanted humidity I'd go to Florida.
