Initial dealing with the staff via email did not leave a very good impression. Enquired few weeks earlier, but was still comparing places.
Then 2 days before check in date, contacted the staff again via email, she was quite blatant rude. Price had gone up by then.
Since other places were over our budget for that weekend, decided to stick with this hotel.
Surprisingly, at check in, reception staff was friendly, fast and efficient.
Even the housekeepers were very helpful and friendly when we requested extra blanket and towels.
The beds and furnishing..absolutely a surprise. for the price we paid, it was very worth it. bed was plush and comfy..a bit regal for a room like that actually.
Parking was free which was great.
Breakfast was abundant..the breakfast area was small [in the reception area], so just took the food back to our room..no problem.
The location, since was out of SF city, so our first day was spent exploring the suburb nearby. can't remember the name, but it was great, coz it has so many outlets and well know names next to each other.
very near to airport, would be convenient for those who need to fly off to next destination. we were driving to LA after that, so did not benefit from this.
