Reviewed October 25, 2013

Sofitel always provides exceptional service - it is an absolute pleasure to stay here. Beds are very comfortable. I've stayed here many times over the last ten years and the Sofitel delivers everytime.

I have stayed at this hotel many times for business travel and have found the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff to be the best I have ever experienced. The hotel is just 10 minutes south of the San Francisco airport and a good choice if you want to be near the airport or if you have business in the nearby area. Many of the rooms face a very picturesque lagoon. The suites are very spacious and all of the hotel's beds are extremely comfortable. The staff always go the extra mile and warmly greet me when I visit.

Room Tip: All of the suites are spacious and quiet and any of the rooms facing the lagoon have a great view.

Whenever I have to travel to Redwood City for work, Sofitel is my favorite hotel. The rooms are spotless, the services is great and the bed is THE BEST. But during my recent trip, the staff went above and beyond good service. Unfortunately I started experiencing tremendous abdominal pain that evening. The staff (I wish I had names!) was extremely helpful and offered 911 but I requested a cab. A cab immediately came to take me to the ER. Several hours later, I called back and explained that I may be admitted and asked them to pack my belongings and I would send a friend for my things. Over the next several hours, the situation changed and I was now being released. When I arrived back at the hotel, I asked for a later check out time so that I could rest until it was time to leave for my flight back home. Later they helped me to get a cab who took me to the pharmacy then to the airport. Everyone was extremely accommodating and helpful. I am so grateful for everyone's help while at Sofitel.

I am very glad we were able to help you in such adverse circumstances. I am also glad that you were able to be released quickly and that it wasn’t something more serious.

Our staff is fully committed to helping our guests no matter what situation may arise. I will ask around to find out who assisted you so I may personally thank them.

Thank you for choosing Sofitel,

This bay area hotel has been a bit long-in-the-tooth in the past. However I discovered on a recent stay that they have been updating the rooms. lobby and restaurant. Given the proximity to the airport and local tech companies and the consistently good service, I will definitely pick Sofitel on my next stay in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for newly updated rooms.

Used the Sofitel for a short business trip. Very close(walking distance) to Oracle in Redwood Shores. Decent food, bar. Small but pleasant out door pool area didn't use the gym but it looked OK. For some R&R flew over the local landmarks with Gabe at flybayarea.com based down at San Mateo airport, 10 mins walk from the hotel. Room spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed. Very comfortable!

Bonjour!

Thank you for your kind words about our hotel. Our signature Sofibed has satisfied countless weary vacationers and business people by providing a very comfortable place to rest after a long day.

An aerial tour over the Bay sounds exciting! I may have to try that myself.
