Editorial review:

The rooms here are nice and the prices are good at this corporate hotel in an office park. This makes it popular with those on business, and even though it's a ways away from San Francisco and doesn't have anything particularly special, the beds are very nice, the staff is very good, and it's close to the airport and Silicon Valley.

                        10.0

                        Hotel has a beautiful view of the bay, great bar and lounge area, staff was very friendly, parking is free and have a valet if needed. We only had breakfast and was more than adequate, a bit pricey. They have plenty of computers to use in the lobby for free and printers to access internet. No need for a laptop if you are not going to access files.

                      • Group of friends
                        9.0

                        the hotel was very nice comfortable room just little old but clean the restaurant is very nice with fancy modern decor the view on the lake gives nice view from the window which i liked the front disc very friendly and helpful . because i had a meeting in Stanford University it was good to stay in it was 20 mints from Sanfrancisco it is 15 mints south of the airport

                      • Older travelers
                        10.0

                        The staff and the room were excellent. There were several weddings and/or receptions the weekend we were there and the wedding guests must have come from their trailers directly to the events.Loud and drunk. No class.

                      • Older travelers
                        8.2

                        Staff attitude (bellmen and reception)

                        Open concept restaurant is subject to noise and visual distraction from bar area and any meeting room function on main floor (a wedding dance party while we were dining, which was extremely loud and inappropriate).

                      • Older travelers
                        5.8

                        Convenient location

                        Room was in disrepair. Broken lampshades, broken sink drain, toilet did not flush well. Staff efficient but not friendly or engaging. Bell staff overbearing: gave help when not needed or wanted.

                      • Older travelers
                        10.0

                        It was lovely very classy and posh. very reasonable price, handy for airport. The room was spot on.

                        Beautiful hotel with a good location close to the airport. Very comfortable. We had requested non feather comforter and pillows. They hadn't done this but sent an employee to change this immediately after we checked in. That was impressive!

                        The lobby and pool are great. Bathroom is nice and clean. The stay is pleasant and comfortable.

                        Interior of the room is a bit old-fashioned. Internet is not free.

                        The manager quickly and efficiently helped us with the couple problems we had at check. Beautiful hotel, view, great atmosphere and great bar.

                        The front desk lady was very rude and our room was not ready as we were told it would be, but like I said above, the manager really cared and was helpful and fast at making it all right.

                        Comfort.

                        It's pathetic that you charge for breakfast at a $300+ stay per night.

                        The hotel is very nice, beautiful pool area, perfect location on the SF peninsula. The lobby is super updated and contemporary and the rooms are comfortable.
