Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree By Hilton San Francisco Airport North Brisbane
Very Good Hotel
We stayed here for one night before flying out of San Francisco.
The rooms were large and very clean with good bathrooms. There was a fridge, microwave oven and safe in the room.
The hotel is some 4 miles from the airport with complimentary shuttle bus running to the airport every 30 minutes.
There was a smallish indoor swimming pool with a very hot jacuzzi and a small, well equipped gym.
We ate in the hotel restuarant and both the food and service were excellent.
This hotel was a real surprise, it was very good and I would highly recommend it. If you wanted to have a base outside SF then it offers excellent value for money - we only paid $90 for the night.
Good pre-flight hotel
We chose to stay at the Radisson because of the park and fly rate. The rosoms were nice and comfortable. Pool area and workout facility was okay. We have stayed here before and found the hotel restaurant (which is not affiliated with the hotel) to be poor at best. We ordered food in from one of the local italian restaurants for dinner. It is a short jog to the airport and the shuttles run every half hour from 4:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. If you need the shuttle in the morning let them know at check in to ensure that someone is there for you. We came back to find our car still safe and sound. We will also stay for our upcoming trip in August.
Recently stayed at Radisson at Sierra Point for a one-night stay because of a business trip in silicon valley.
Price was 115 USD per night.
This hotel is very well located. 15 minutes from San Francisco downtown area and less than 15 minutes to the SFO airport.
This hotel looks brand new. The rooms are exceptionally clean and nicely decorated.
Despite the closeness of the airport, the noise level is totally acceptable, no problems to sleep.
Didn`t try the pool nor the gym, so can`t comment on this one.
The service from the hotel staff was very good and efficient.
The only caveat is the breakfast (not included in the rate and since there is nothing around to compete against,,,,then you end up paying 20 USD for your breakfast) but you can make your own waffles !
I will definitely come back whenever i have future business meetings in the area.
Excellent, 4 Star Hotel
This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The only minus was its location. It is a 20 min drive to San Francisco. You can also use a shuttle to get to the airport and take a train to San Francisco from there.
This hotel is clean, has nice features. The rooms are big and nicely furnished. Great lobby. Good health center. The new mediteranean restaurant that opened, has some good food there. You just need to know what to order.
Coplimentary Internet too...
Good hotels, food service terrible
As noted in the title. the rooms are nice, it's a good location if your attending a game at 3Com( Monster Stadium) or on a lay over.
The shuttle service runs at their own pace or not at all. The hotel staff is nice the rooms are decent & clean. The food is good but the service is the worst! It took 1 hours for a steak & some burgers. Forget the bartender, even tips don't work. When I complained to the Manager he said the food service is contracted out. I advise we will no longer be staying there. It's just to much of an inconvenience.
Helpful staff. Nice room.
It was our first trip to San Francisco and I chose something close to the airport to make catching our flights easier. The room was nice and roomy. Complimentary high speed internet access was a nice touch as well. The staff was helpful and knowledgable regarding travelling into the city and was generally pleasant. Overall a nice place to stay.
The negatives included having no amenities near to the hotel, as it's in a commercial district. The shuttle service only runs on the 1/2 hour in the morning and you have to call for a shuttle to the airport in the afternoon or evening. One evening we stood at the airport with two other couples for over 1 hour while the hotel clerk tried to locate the shuttle driver. Next trip I'll probably try something more centrally located, but for a first trip it was pretty good.
A fair deal
We stayed for 3 nights on our outbound trip and 1 night on our return back to the airport a month later for a flight to London. The rooms were quiet, plenty large enough, good bed and the crib was already up in the room.
Room service was friendly and the food fine.
I was suprised though, that there was no concierge service or help with bags, especially at an airport hotel. Check in and out was efficient but cool.
A good deal in fairness as it did only take 20 mins to downtown and parking is not a problem. Cheaper than the city.
Room was good, food service terrible
We stayed at this hotel going to and coming from Hawaii. We chose it because it was a Radisson, close to the airport for an early morning flight and had a shuttle. The room was nice.
We surprised to learn that at dinner you could only get a big, expensive dinner. After several tries we finally got them to give us the sandwiches they would deliver to your room. We didn't want to sit in our room after being on a plane for 5 hours.
We had no help with our luggage, the desk wasn't helpful. My husband finally found a luggage cart both in the evening and the next morning.
On our return trip we arrived at the airport at 9:15, called for the shuttle (have to wait until you get out to the shuttle stand as they aren't listed on the service board by the luggage). The driver finally showed up a little after 10:00. He barely could understand English when someone asked if the hotel had a vacancy. It took three of us to explain to him what the man was asking. We finally got to the hotel, to find once again no help available, no cart to be found and no one who would answer the desk clerk's repeated calls for assistance. We went to our room and tried to order room service. No one would answer so my husband went down and placed an order. As he walked back in the room the phone rang and they informed us they did not do room service after 10:00. We could have a slice of pizza. After not having had anything for hours, we weren't that desperate and we ended up splitting a muffin and candy bar I had in my luggage.
For breakfast they only offer a buffet. In spite of our lack of food the night before, we weren't all that hungry. The waiter, again whom we could barely understand, said we could have a danish and juice and coffee and they would charge accordingly. Well, they certainly did. The tab was over $14.00 for two tiny danish, two very tiny orange juices, and one very watered down coffee.
They have you over a barrel as there are no restaurants anywhere near by and you have no car.
I wrote the manager and she did call us to apologize. She said the food service is contracted out and she has no control over them. What a shame since they certainly give the Radisson a bad name.
Good for park and ride to airport
We arrived late on June 25th 2004 and left early the next morning for the airport. The room was very nice, the mattresses very comfortable and the room was quiet! The shuttle service to the airport is every half hour. The room was around $120 for the one night which included the sfo airport shuttle and our car was parked there the whole 7 days we were gone, the area seemed quiet and safe and my husband remarked, "our car will be safe here". It was great to start off our trip to Hawaii in a nice hotel. When we arrived they did give us the wrong room, with only one bed, but upon calling the desk they switched our room to an appropriate one immediately. I noted lots of people enjoying the indoor pool but we just slept.
During our stay at the Radisson at Sierra Point we were very impressed. Upon check-in we were greeted quickly and check-in was quick. We had a room on the 8th floor with a view of the Bay and the Marina. The room was large and the feather bed was wonderful. The room furnishings were very tasteful. We had breakfast and dinner at the Xebec restaurant at the hotel and found it and the service very good. The hotel is convenient to the city and the airport. It is about 4 miles from the airport and 7 miles from the city. The hotel has an airport shuttle bus and on-site car rental. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to save money by staying outside the city.

... to Alamo square where we hopped off. We strolled along through the park and saw the beautiful painted ladies wi the back drop off the city, stopping for some photo opportunities along the way. We decided to skip a few designated stops and walk for half an hour to find the house that was used in the filming of full house. It seriously could have been any house but we had to find the right one just for Chiara!! Next stop was Haight, a little part of ...

That night Eric invited us for dinner which was extremely nice of him. Later we walked to his apartment where Eric served us draft beer made by one of his roommates. Gonzalo´s “brothers” were such nice guys and we had a great time with them! Gonzalo was really excited about seeing them after such a long time; they had a lot to talk about (old memories and old friends they used to ...
... that warm, slightly burning sensation of having clear blue sky's and being in the sun all day! It was good to get back to our hotel, use wifi, and chill for a bit after a hectic but great first day in this amazing city. The girls weren't hungry ( strange but true!) so Mike and I went out for food. It is so cool walking the streets we loved it. We saw four Fire Trucks shut down a street briefly only to disappear just as quick! Must have been a false ...
... when I asked for salad with no dressing, not common at all. Bruce was suffering with a sore leg so we took a cab back to the hotel, arrived in less than 10 mins and the Ethiopian taxi driver was very friendly and wished us a good night upon departure. The day in San Francisco was warm and about 25C but much warmer in the Valley, probably 34C and overcast. Got windy near Sacramento and cooler upon arrival, about 25C Cheers, ...
