“Great hotel for West Bay Access!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Having stayed in this area multiple times for both work and pleasure, really impressed with the opportunities this hotels setting gives you! Stayed here this time with family while wife was participating in a business forum. Roughly 15 minute drive on 101 either way gets you to lower San Francisco downtown or, other way, to Airport and access to Burlingame and there abouts. Want to cut across to the coast and Half Moon Bay??...freeway for that is right there...want to get to East Bay but hate trying to go through San Fran, well just head south 5-10 minute and hit San Mateo bridge and over.....Hotel is a smaller, very well kept Embassy Suites. We checked in at around 7:00, met with best front desk of any Embassy Suites my family has experienced and an unexpected upgrade in a room! Has an actual restaurant on site as well as the usual breakfast/reception with an actual lounge! Great views from windows in the rooms and very quiet. Would have given this a 5+ except for 2 things.....parking is like most other properties in that its expensive (17.00 for hotel lot..) and some wear starting to show in carpets and wallpaper. Multiple businesses near by for those of interest and 101 access in 100 meters yet still very quiet! This hotel is now in our families inner choices for work and leisure! Thanks to all!

Room Tip: Rooms facing freeway have best view and still quiet!!! If with kids, King suites are usually on end...

Just checked out after a 1 night stay, having flown in from London via LA, so a long day! Easy & efficient shuttle from airport, impressive lobby & tree-filled atrium with koi ponds, nice & reasonably priced bar. Suite was very clean with comfy bed & separate lounge. Lots of useful touches such as plenty of mirrors & plug sockets; something us ladies often find lacking in hotel rooms when using hair dryers, straighteners etc!
Also found the staff really good & friendly here. This is only my second stay in an embassy suites, although I'm a Hilton Gold member, and I like the concept a lot, so will most likely be using again!

A very good Embassy Suites; breakfast was fine. The suite was clean and well-furnished. The manager's reception was good, although the food offerings were a bit modest as compared to some Embassy Suites I've been in. TIP: There are two Embassy Suite properties near SFO and they are served by different shuttles, so make sure you get on the correct shuttle. The food in the hotel was fine, which helps, since there isn't anything nearby. If you walk or run, the staff can give you easy directions that take you out to the bay, where you can enjoy views of the water and Oakland across the bay.

Great place for a comfy stay with large spacious suites. Good breakfast spread with made to order omelettes and any style of eggs, free alcohol in the evenings along with some carbs to munch on..Nice ambience although a pretty busy place. Airport shuttle was very useful and the shuttle could be used for availing the bart. Overall a nice, cosy stay and would love to stay here again !

Breakfast was superb for the price (free) with pre made sausage, bacon, scrabbled eggs, oatmeal. Also available was made to order omelets, french toast, and eggs any style. And do it yourself bagels with a commercial toaster, cold cereals, muffins, yogurt and fruit. They didn't seem to have a problem with us taking a couple yogurts and bananas to the room for later.
Parking was expensive @ $17/night.
Airport shuttle was handy, especially to get to the bart (train) system.
Koi fish were active, and a lot bigger than I expected.
The pool and hot tub area is open "until" midnight, with only adults allowed after 10pm. We stayed in there way past closing with no hassle.
The wifey and I truly enjoyed the place.

Room Tip: Free drinks and nachos at the managers reception, were a excellent start to a vacation night.

Stayed here before flying out of SFO

It is a very comfortable hotel with large suites.
The atrium area is a nice place to sit and have a beer or wine in the evening and when i was there they had a managers reception with free drink betweem 5 and 7 pm

The breakfast in the morning is very good with a large selection of hot and cold food

Would notr hesitate to stay here again !!
