    Nice Hotel but led on by shuttle

    The hotel is very nice and, like all Embassy Suites, provides free breakfast and cocktails for two hours each day. The issue with this hotel is that they promote a shuttle on Friday and Saturday to take you to North San Francisco but they do not tell you that the shuttle is shared with three other hotels. The week we went, the Embassy was the last hotel to pickup and the shuttle is first come first serve 6 times a day. So we never made a shuttle.

    Good for a night

    I stayed in a single suit on the second floor. It was a really nice room with a wide bed, bathroom with bath tub, a living room in the entry with a plasma screen, sink, fridge and another tv in the room. The room was very clean, very big and very comfortable. They had all the amenities necessary and the staff at the front desk was very welcoming.

    The internet service is expensive at $14 a day. The restaurant food was good but not wonderful. I had a french onion soup for $8 that was small and a little salty. However I do recommend this hotel if you plan to stay there before boarding your plane. It is a little bit far from the city.

    We loved it!

    from

    I read all the reviews before we booked wiht the Embassy Suites. I was a bit apprehensive, but it was the only property that had all of the "extras" that we required. My main concern was getting breakfast! We had ten in our group, six of them being children! We had NO problem getting plenty of food every morning. (We stayed a week) The food was cooked to order or you could get the special of the day. They also had a wide variety of pastries, bagles, and juices. Also offered was coffee, milk, juice, hot chocolate and teas. We ate a full breakfast every morning and none of us really ate again until dinner! The property is older, but the spacious two room suites, (two sinks, fridge, microwave, plenty of storage for all our things, dining table, couch that makes into a queen bed) free breakfast, and open air enviroment made a trip superb! My kids don't want to stay anywhere else! We travel frequently and was suprised we hadn't stayed with them before. The prices are reasonable, and well worth every penny! Figure in the saving of breakfast and lunch ( if ya skip it) in calculating the cost of staying here.

    The worst hotel ever

    from

    my girlfriend and i wanted to have a short shopping stay in sfo by mistake i booked this hotel instead of anza road embassy suites. same info as another guest mentioned-could not turn off air conditioner they kept saying after 9p the heat would kick in and we switched roomes twice no such thing as heat. came home with a terrible cold.--also one of the rooms we switched to smelled like olives..we switched rooms a few times and all were freezing cold. on the other hand anza road i stayed with my boyfriend in late october was wonderful.--could not have been a better staff and clean as can be--this hotel was the same as the other party mentioned before,mold and smelly. -- im going back in may with my boyfriend and its going to be anza road again--cant wait..

    Fantastic value

    from

    I just thought I had to write a positove review of this hotel even though I stayed there last Spring. We arrived quite late but they made sure that we joined into the Manager's reception and in just over 20 minutes we manged 3 full drinks.

    The room was clean, big and comfortable - just what we needed after our drive.

    We enjoyed the full brakfast before our flight nad as we left I thought what wonderful value we had from our stay when compared to the prices we would have paid back in the UK.

    My experience of the staff was that they were helpful, kind and did their jobs with humour.

    I would definitely recommend this as a stopping point at the start of your holiday or before your flight onwards.

    I booked the room through Total stay and that was cheaper than the Hilton web site.

    Only SF airport hotel we stay at

    from

    This place is great. My husband and I are pretty local but stay in San Fran by the airport whenever we're up for Giant's or 49ers games. We used to stay at some of the other hotels (Westin, Sheraton) but they all charge you $16-$20 for parking your car. That's crazy! Plus, the Embassy gives you a great custom breakfast, the interior is beautiful and the have free happy hour drinks! I'll admit the rooms are not as nice as the Westin or Sheraton but you get a lot more for your money. It also has a great walking path along the water for you to watch the planes (my husband LOVES planes). We booked a standard room and when we got there asked them if they had any bay view rooms and they upgraded us for free. When ever I've asked that of some of the other hotels (Westin/ Sheraton) they ususally say no. Overall, I'd say the friendly staff, the breakfast, the drinks and the atrium make this stay the best.

    Great location

    from

    We chose to stay at the Embassey Suites - SFAirport over Labor Weekend '04. We were traveling with another couple and wanted to visit the city, Napa Valley and then drive down to Carmel. This location was perfect and was very nice. The hotel setting was lovely and had a walking trail by the bay....you would have never known you were at an "airport hotel" We were able to get on the highway easily to get to our destinations. The rates were good and they included breakfast and a happy hour. There were a large number of guest there over a busy holiday weekend and the facility was able to accommodate everyone during the breakfast buffet. The rooms were the basic Embassey Suite rooms and the hotel decor was lovely. For the price and location it was a pleasant experience plus the parking was free!! If you don't want to stay in downtown SF, this is a nice change.

    Highly recommended

    from

    Excellent value for the money. Stayed here the weekend of 11/20 with my family of five. We had a great time, the place was immaculate, the inside atrium incredibly picturesque - and the complimentary breakfast delicious. I will definitely stay here again.

    Good stay but some problems

    from

    Stayed there on 11/11. Hotel was nice and staff was friendly. Good value overall However, there were some problems: 1). No hot water in the bathroom sink. The hot water valve was shut off by the maintenance people because of the leak. I opened it and hot water started leaking. I called the front desk and the problem got fixed when we got back to the room that night. 2). The sofa bed was broken. Half of the bed springs fell off when we pulled the bed out. It was midnight so I didn't bother calling the front desk. Anyway, they should have checked all these before giving the room out. 3). There were 17 kids from the same group in the pool that night, and half of them were teenagers. The younger ones there had no adult supervision. Where were the parents? These kids were totally out of control and no hotel staff there to intervene. My kids were bumped out because I had to pull them out of the pool after five minutes as they almost got hurt by some of these teenagers jumping into the pool ignoring rules posted in the pool area. We ran into the same problem when we went back to the pool the next morning. Pretty sad!

    Great value for the money

    from

    We recently stayed at this hotel and thought that the service, amenities and location great for our family of four. Central Reservations had promised us a rollaway bed, but this hotel does not have them! The manager was great and helped work out the situation quickly. Maintenance came and fixed a problem in our room quickly--food at the restaurant was good, breakfast a little too crowded some mornings with a very long line for made to order items and low stock on most other things. Staff was generally very nice and answered all our questions pleasantly. It is an easy drive into San Francisco as long as you don't go in rush hour and the train is walking distance from the hotel. All in all, we thought it a great place to stay for a family!

    Dirtiest hotel i have ever stayed at

    from

    The first room we were in smelled really bad. On the box spring had stains all over it. The bathroom looked like it had never been cleaned.

    There was mold everywhere. We asked for a different room and the staff was extremely rude. The second room wasnt much better and we couldnt turn the air conditioner off. We ended up just leaving and going to the Hilton down the street. It was a lot more money but after the trauma we went through at the embassy suites we didnt care.

    Good location reasonable price

    from

    Hotels in SFO are expensive , and most charge for car parking. The solution - stay at the airport. Ten mins from clearing the airport you are in your room relaxing. Not much to see or do about here, not even much in the way of eateries but the cost savings more than make up for this. Hotel a bit bland but has some very nice features- complementary breakfast, complementary evening drinks and popcorn. A bit of a wait for the above when the hotel is busy but overall a good value for money package.

Some quick stops to follow were at Grace Cathedral, Chinatown, Fortune Cookie shop, and the Cable Car Museum, which was a little underwhelming but loved seeing all the cables and machinery going that run all the trams!

    ... We both ordered two appetizers each as we weren't very hungry. We shared a creme brulee dessert which was very good and not too sweet and rich which is the norm with American food. It was in a deep dish rather than a shallow dish with large surface area of caramerlized crust but it was surprisingly light and delicious. Very easy to hail a cab just outside the restaurant so we felt very comfortable. Taxi fare around $13 each way.

The bus was full and slow in showing up, so after a 20-25 minute wait Speck finally boarded and was immeadiatly called and asked where the heck he was. Arriving at the Blarney Stone pitchers were poured, beer was drank, conversations were had.
