    Historical Traveler Reviews Bay Landing Hotel Burlingame

    My New Favorite Hotel!


    Just got back from a four-night stay at the Bay Landing. I chose it based largely on the reviews here, and wasn't disappointed!

    My wife and I had a king room facing the street. Very quiet. Even without the fan/AC running, we couldn't hear any traffic, airport, or any other noise. Couldn't tell if we had neighbors!

    I would've been happy with the room for twice what I paid ($79 a night)! Comfy bed; the decor was pleasant, and everything was clean and looked brand new (which I guess it should, having been built in April 2004). The room was what I'd consider a pretty standard size, but from what I've seen and heard about SF hotels, "standard" is bigger than the average in-town room, even at the expensive places. In addition to the standard amenities like cable TV, hair dryer, and coffeemaker; the room also had a safe, mini-fridge, and microwave (which could come in handy for the TV dinners and snacks available near the front desk). My wife loved the soaps and shampoos, too -- apparently they were from the Judith Jackson Spa, not some cheap bulk-rate stuff. As someone else mentioned, the one thing that the room lacked was a nightlight for the bathroom.

    Other than the room, the hotel was well-decorated with decent features. The guest lounge featured a widescreen plasma TV, several stocked bookshelves, a chess set, and a computer with free internet access. Wish I could say I used the exercise room or the great walking/jogging path along the bay right out back, but what kind of a vacation includes sweating? Anyway, there's no pool or on-site restaurant, but immediately next door to the hotel are 3 restaurants, including the highly recommended Elephant Bar. Oh, and a Sizzler farther down the street.

    The staff was always friendly and helpful.

    The airport shuttle service was a slight frustration. They'll tell you that their shuttle stops by the airport every half hour, but it doesn't. DEFINITELY call the hotel and have them arrange one, rather than just waiting for one to show up (similarly, all hotel-to-airport shuttles need to be arranged ahead of time). Once you do so, it's smooth sailing. The free airport shuttle is very useful for riding the BART around town if, like us, you don't rent a car. If you do rent a car, they mentioned they offer one free parking spot per room (parking's a big deal in SF). Incidentally, the shuttle company that services the Bay Landing is called JNJ. They also service a dozen other hotels, so while you're at the airport, it's not immediately obvious it's a Bay Landing shuttle -- look for the Bay Landing logo near the back of the shuttle's side.

    Breakfast was incredible, especially for being free! Not only was there a make-your-own waffle bar, but always a good selection of cereal, fruits, bagels, muffins, pastries, yogurt, granola, jello, and a full beverage selection. I don't eat this good at home! Plus, you can eat it on the terrace to enjoy the bay view and comfy, bug-free weather. Advice: Go to breakfast early, get ready after. Later on it's busy, and sometimes they clean up early.

    Bottom line: The Bay Landing does everything right. If it were a chain, I'd never stay anywhere else in my travels!

    Great Hotel!


    We bypassed this hotel on our incoming flight due to the fact that they only had double beds, what a mistake. We had problems at our 1st choice so on the return flight we chose this hotel. Even though the beds are only doubles, they are very confortable. The rooms are large and nicely decorated.

    The breakfast is great with a variety of muffins, danish, fruit, cereal, pancakes and you can even make your own belgin waffles. The view from the patio is nice and relaxing looking out onto the bay and watching the planes. We didn't even hear them inside the hotel. Next time we would request a bayview room if we were to stay longer or for a little more money we might even try a suite.

    The hotel is conveniently located by SFO and close to the Millbrae BART station which you can take to San Francisco. The front desk staff was nice, polite, and very knowledgeable of the area.

    Definately don't pass up this hotel, it is worth every penny!

    Great hotel and location


    I traveled with a group of business associates and stayed at Bay Landing for two nights. The hotel is spotless and very convenient to SFO. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and quiet. They provide high speed internet and a very good complementary breakfast. Price paid was $99 plus tax. I booked a future stay and was given a rate of $89 as a repeat customer. I don't think the value can be duplicated this close to SFO. Other advantages are that the hotel has a great jogging/walking path and it's right next to two restaurants. All in our party were very pleased with Bay Landing.

    Excellent Airport Hotel


    If you want to stay at the Airport look no further. A fantastic new hotel with well appointed rooms that you would expect to find in a much more expensive hotel. It doesn't have a bar or a restaurant; which is not a problem because it is beside the Elephant Bar (restaurant and bar) and another Mexican restaurant. I highly recommend this hotel for your airport stay.

    A real this hotel Now


    We recently stayed here the night before a flight out of SFO. This place is an amazing value. We paid $79 for a king room that was brand-new and looked out over the Bay. All the basic room amenities, plus microwave and mini-fridge. Breakfast included in the morning was terrific. They let us park our car for $5 a night while we were gone. I cannot say enough good things about this remarkable hotel. We always stayed at Embassy Suites before, but this will now be our only choice for SFO travel. In fact, this is such a nice place and exceptional value I would recommend it for anyone traveling to SF. You can take their shuttle over to the airport and BART it into the city. After a full day of sightseeing you will appreciate the quiet elegance of a room looking out at the ocean, and walking distance to several great restaurants. With an exercise room,guest laundry, free Internet in the lobby library, great breakfast to fuel you in the morning you could have an ideal, and very affordable vacation to SF.

    We are used to staying in 4-5 star hotels, and Bay Landing rivals any of them for true value. Something rare these days, this hotel is a real gem.

    Excellent Staff, Impeccable Service


    We stumbled upon this hotel driving by and saw their new signs - now it has become our favorite place to stay in the area. The facilities are wonderful, the bay view is very pleasant, the breakfast is hearty and the location is very convenient.

    The clincher is the friendlieness and flexibility of the staff. They accomodated our requests easily, greeted us by name upon our comings and goings, and made sure everything was done right. When we unexpectedly had to extend our stay, they were extemely helpful beyond the call of duty.

    This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at, it gets our highest reccomendation!

    Excellent stay close to airport


    First off, thanks to those who reviewed this hotel on TripAdvisor because that was how I heard of it. A five minute pick up time at the aiport which is vastly superior to my usual experiences at airports. A quick drive to a quiet neighbourhood (the Marriot and Vagabond Inn are close by). Very well appointed property and in the morning a lovely bay view where I spent an hour watching planes take off and land at SFO aiport. This is an excellent option for anyone wanting a pleasant pre or post-flight stay. There is also a gym which I didn't use. Weekend rate of $69 made it a bargain for me.

    Well appointed and peaceful. Great place to stay.


    We stayed at the Bay Landing Hotel in Burlingame for 3 nights while attending a family wedding. Located on the bay near the San Francisco Airport, we enjoyed the bay view, watching the seagulls play and the planes taking off and landing a mile away. The property is rich with those little thoughtful extras that made the stay as close to being at home as I've ever been at a hotel. Restrooms are covered in granite and tile. Beds come equipped with down pillows and cotton sheets. Each spacious room has a refrigerator, microwave, hair drier, television and safe. All are comfort controlled with Mitsubishi ductless split air conditioners that run almost silently while providing the guest with total control of the room's temperature. The bathroom exhaust system is ductless and nearly silent as well. The windows are double-framed so the bottom line is that you get a quiet, restful clean stay in your room with willing and attentive service although often hindered by the language barrier. The breakfast is more than adequate. Overall a great place to stay.

    Great place to stay


    The Bay landing hotel is really a perfect place to stay:

    Unfortunately we finished our round-trip through California at Bay landing hotel: it was the best hotel for a great price. The hotel is very new, only a few months old. We payed 79$ for a Bay-view room which had everything: brand new, excellent bathroom, spacious bedroom, big TV, air-condition, nice wooden furniture (no fake stuff).

    Great view on the SF Bay.

    Desk service was very nice and helpfull .

    Free internet in the lobby, free coffee and tee all day long. We hadnīt the chance to try the breakfast because we had the leave at 5 am, but the breakfastroom appeared very nice.

    Shuttle service to the SF airport available at any time. Free parking just in front of the hotel. Restaurants and Bars just next door.

    We were really surprised about the hotel and were dissapointed that we could not stay longer.

    If we will come back to SF, we will stay here again.

    Elegant & Affordable!


    During our roadtrip to California from Washington State we were very fortunate to stay at The Bay Landing Hotel. The Bay Landing is only 3 months old and is very beautiful and elegant. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave in it. We had a view of the San Francisco Bay and could see airplanes take-off and land (without the noise of the airport). It is only 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco. Our room only cost $85.00 a night and I found out a suite was only $115.00 a night. During our road trip we paid anywhere from $60.00 to $139.00 and this was the nicest hotel we stayed in. Ironically, the hotel for $139.00 was the oldest and shabbiest! The Bay Landing served a free continental breakfast that included Belgian waffles! The room we stayed in during our last vacation at Disneyworld's Caribbean Resort wasn't half as nice as this room and we paid over $200.00 a night for that room. I would give this hotel a 5-star rating and would recommend it to anyone visiting the San Francisco area.

We hit very little traffic coming into SF, luckily, as we could see the peak hour flow going in the opposite direction - that would suck! When we hit the bay bridge we got a spectacular view of the City, in the late afternoon sun, including the Golden Gate in all it's glory. We checked into our hotel in Union Square, showered and headed out for some food (Japanese) and then bed! Tomorrow we hit the ...

    ... very warm, kind people with lots of interesting stories to tell. You know, it really is the people that make travelling worth while.

    The view of San Francisco as we drove back across the bay bridge, lit up like a Christmas tree in the dark, was extremely pretty. That side of San Fran really is good looking. It goes without saying that last night I slept like a log after that very long but incredible day. Eleven hours of travelling for three hours at Yosemite? Totally worth ...
