This hotel is located in Redwood City, near Oracle and other tech companies.
It is an elegant hotel, with very pleasant service. Staff are welcoming and uniformly helpful.
There is a good restaurant, a bar and an eat/in or take out cafe with lattés, espresso and very nice French pastries. Rooms were fine. Fairly standard good quality hotel room. The plumbing and doors opening and closing in adjoining room are somewhat noisy, but I was only aware of that in the evening, and my sleep was not disturbed.
The location is fine for business in the area, but at the price I wouldn't stay here for tourism- you can get as nice a hotel right in San Francisco for that.
The hotel is a bit isolated- it was a $30 cab ride to the company I was visiting on Seaport Boulevard. However, it is situated on a small lagoon and you can walk around it- apparently 4km around, but I just walked about half way. There is an outdoor pool and bar that look over the lagoon- pleasant to sit there in the late afternoon.
All in all, if you need to be in the local area around Redwood City/San Mateo for business, this is a good choice, but if you are in the Bay area for tourism, I'd head for downtown San Francisco. I took the free shuttle to and from the airport, but if you are there for more than a couple of nights, a rent a car would be preferable.
