    Good hotel for holiday/business customers. Reasonable choice of restaurants/shops nearby, some of which are within walking distance. Just as described in details with no surprises - good or bad.

    Whilst a good location for us as we were travelling around the San Fran/California area - if you are using as a base to discover San Fran only it's a good 30 min drive away on busy highways and then the parking in San Fran is fairly limited/expensive. The hotel restaurants were expensive for the choice/quality offered.

    This 4-star hotel is really good value for money. Especially if booked around the weekend! It's a great location, if you are winding down after a trip around the Bay Area and want to just relax before your long haul flight.

    The restaurant and cafe/bar are somewhat intertwined. Opening hours of the restaurant weren't clear. If you want to grab a late lunch, the cafe/bar is pretty good.

    Very nice hotel. Impressive lobby. Pleasant, comfortable, clean rooms.

    Noise in hall of our floor on Saturday night due in main part to three separate high-school reunions at the hotel. Probably can avoid this by not booking weekends in September. I don't blame the hotel.

    It was very clean, attractive, convenient to our needs. We had stayed there before several years ago and would recommend it.

    Next to the shopping center

    Unreliable shuttle service... Waiting line for breakfast... I left some stuff behind in the room and no hotel staff response to help me find it.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Very close to the San Francisco International Airport. Big free car park on the territory of the hotel. Free wifi in the rooms of the good quality.

    The location-is quite far from the San Francisco, in rush hour it can take 1-1.5 hours to get to the center.
