The hotel is about 20 minutes south of the San Francisco Airport and thus caters for guests arriving at SFO but doing their business to the south towards Palo Alto and the rest of Silicon Valley. The location is good at the intersection of Highway 101 and Route 92. You can be down town San Francisco in about 45 minutes or go south to San Jose in the same time. It is a straight-forward business hotel that does exactly what it says on the sticker. The large rooms are comfortable and clean. The quiet rooms are facing south and west. Room numbers ending with 15 to 65 (e.g. 2059) are south facing away from the highways and therefore more quiet. The beds are really comfortable; Good matrasses, lots of pillows to sit up straight, and crisp clean duvets. There was an in room safe and a small fridge. The TV is OK but doesn’t have HBO. Room windows can be opened.
The hotel has only 6 floors and is quite stretched out. A walk to the front desk can take 5 minutes. Staff is friendly and the breakfast is excellent. The bar in the evening is decent and the food in the adjoining restaurant is very reasonable.
Something to keep in mind: From Thursdays to Sundays the hotel lowers its rates considerably thereby attracting high school kids or convention visitors. Both can be quite noisy at times. Wouldn’t recommend this hotel on the weekends if you need a good rest and want uncluttered service in the restaurant. Otherwise it is a fine hotel. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
I would go back here again.
