“Our Annual Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stay here every year because it is convenient to the fair grounds. The room had a little more wear showing than in the past (e.g. water damage to wood around mirror in bathroom). Things to know:
-parking is $22 (in and out)
-nice breakfast buffet but costs around $18 (little less for kids) but it does have a nice variety, healthy choices, and cook to order (omelet and eggs)
-pool and hot tub are not usually crowded
-work out room is nice

Stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights, nice friendly staff though I got lost looking for the ice machine, yeah no fridges in the rooms, Yes LA continues to lead the field in energy conservation. A bit pricey though and location is a bit of a challenge.

Room Tip: My room seemed nice but I really missed having a fridge

We've stayed here four times for a nearly tech event and even though I'm usually a hotel snob, I really like this property. The rooms are reliably clean and spacious and everything works. The executive suites are quite roomy and with two queen beds and a sofabed, they're very family-friendly. Also, compared to other hotels in the vicinity, even some of those budget hotels, this is usually a great value.

Room Tip: Ask for an executive suite

Stayed here for 4 nights in a concierge room with access to the lounge. It's a Marriott and wherever you are in the world they do look and feel the same and this one is no exception. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room spacious and comfortable. The shower was great - very powerful - it was like a massage every morning!

The concierge lounge was a bit disappointing as the breakfast selection was very limited and in the evening they operated an honour bar - in other similar lounges the drink has typically been free.

The gym was small though well equipped on the cardio side but a little limited in the resistance room

They run a shuttle from the airport once an hour which arrives at SFO International terminal at 15 past the hour - it was spot on for me and the ride is only 10 mins to the hotel.

Good one night stay, south of SFO airport. Staff very positive and helpful. Good exec. lounge with free wine and enough food for a dinner. Breakfast good also. Jr. suites have plenty of room. Shuttle from airport takes some time. Good last night on a long trip that included many Marriotts.

This is the first time I stayed in a hotel in San Mateo when visiting relatives. Picked the Marriott because of its location. Could not have been more pleasantly surprised. We got a great deal on a small suite. The price was right, and the staff was extremely helpful. Bed was extremely comfortable. They accommodated an early check in when I called from the airport (just 10 minutes away). The parking set up is great. Key card opens parking gate and the side door was close to a small elevator that was next to our room. Almost felt like we had a private entrance. Didn't have to deal with the lobby or anyone when we didn't want to. Housekeeping was responsive to special requests. Had only one meal at the hotel the morning we were leaving for the airport. Service was good, breakfast was excellent.
All in all, plan to stay again, when we go back.

I had a free nights stay from my Marriott Rewards visa and used for this at kind of the last minute.

Unfortunately we only had a short time here because we had an early flight and went at around 9pm at night.

We were given an upgrade to a junior suite plus a free breakfast which was very nice. The suite was wonderful, and the breakfast was really good - buffet which was like a sunday brunch including lox and other specialities.

thanks so much and am posting lots of pics.

my ONLY negative - ish was that the parking lot lights are on all night but there are black out drapes so like vegas you can shut this out.

Room Tip: ask for high room - also ask about an upgrade if you are a rewards member as this is a HUGE Property
