Upon arrival the hotel was all decorated for the holidays. It looked beautiful. The facility was perfect, rooms good sized and clean!! Would definitely stay here again if in the area. You won't be disappointed.

I come each quarter to visit my company local offices and i always enjoy my stay in this hotel. the room are comfortable, very clean and the wifi connection is good, staff is friendly and helpful!
Regarding the restaurant, it is not very high in terms of quality/choice, but the breakfast is fine.
You have plenty of other dining places around, so it is really not a problem.
Location is close to 101 without being too close too (so cannot hear it) so it"s easy to find.

The hotel is well located, clean and for an OK price. For me is a good alternative when the Crowne Plaza in Foster city is fully booked (prefer the breakfast and restaurants in the Crowne Plaza). Its walking distance to the Bridgepointe shopping (restaurants and shops).

Excellent place for business travel. Safe area to get out and walk after a long day at the office with shopping and restaurants in walking distance. The staff are efficient and welcoming and the restaurant offers a good selection and quality of meals.

VintageMotorcycleRescue.Com was in San Mateo to attend the Progressive International Motorcycle Show as an exhibitor, and with 22.5 hours of show time over the weekend of October 25-27, we needed a place fairly close to the San Mateo Events Center on Delaware Street which would be safe for our show bike trailer, quiet, have late night dining options, and be convenient to the show grounds. We found all of these at this Hilton Garden Inn, and we highly recommend it!

We'd requested a room with a view of the parking lot, because we'd suffered a break-in to our trailer at the Holiday Inn Express Santa Nella last July, and didn't want to repeat the experience here. Upon check in to our three rooms, the young desk staff was extremely helpful, and had reserved us Room 101, which was a ground level unit with a perfect view of the rear parking lot. We were able to park our trailer attached to the Tundra across several parking spaces in this half empty rear lot, and the window of our room was about 100 feet away from the trailer with good lighting. Perfect!

The hotel is in a very safe area of San Mateo, and it's extremely quiet. Plus the beds are exceptionally comfortable and the entire hotel is kept spotless. The shower heads are Water Piks and there's an abundance of hot water and thick, soft towels. Wi-Fi is free and very fast, we had no trouble with it the four days we were here.
Within easy short walking distance is the Bridgepointe Shopping Mall, where we found BJ's Brewpub, Red Robin, and El Torito Restaurants for a large variety of late night food and libations. Otherwise the hotel has a lobby restaurant that we didn't try, except during breakfast, when we didn't have time to go anywhere else. Just as well, because the breakfast for about $15 per person was outstanding, and the chef making the hot dishes was a master of his craft. It's set up like a very good buffet, but with a superior level of service provided by a very accommodating and well trained staff. We enjoyed it very much!
Few hotels have met our needs as well as this one, I can't say enough good things about the attentive staff, excellent location, very reasonable room rates ($111), and comfortable rooms. If we're ever in this area again, we'll certainly be back! Five Stars!

Room Tip: There aren't any bad rooms, nobody had any complaints.

We enjoyed a very nice two days with the San mateo Hilton. It began with our check in with Jackie and continued with the help of getting change for the washer/dryer service. The room was clean and pleasantly decorated. Spot on, I would say. Mike Chappell Sonora, CA

Nice rooms and great location. My wife didn't complain about it, but the adjustable mattress my wife slept on didn't work. I would recommend this hotel since it was in close proximity to the airport and restaurants.
