Nice Place, good for airport and BART access
Stayed at with family during summer vacation. Nice place, used airport shuttle to access BART to and from San Francisco and it worked well. Bayview room is suggested. Be aware of noise from the night club. Avoid rooms on lower floors in the Northeast area. Would stay at again.
Very nice room and view
stayed 1 nite, nov 14 enroute to hawaii, got the suite that overlooked the water for $ 62 via hotwire. fabulous atrium with beautiful foliage and waterfall, excellent cooked breakfast, quick airport service. definitely would stay again.
Very friendly staff, Asked for a Bayview room, was informed none available, but gave me a bay facing room, in fact, it is a bayview room, but its on the 3rd floor, so it was not called a bayview room becuase of the height. But the view is simply stunning even on the 3rd floor. Very happy. The breakfast is well cooked. freshed made pancakes. very good. Room service is efficient.
On the downside, the furniture is a bit tired. the computer at the lobby for accessing the internet is the slowest I've ever seem.
I will definitly go back..
Great place to stay...
Our first visit to SF and glad we chose this Hotel (recomended by relatives). Large, clean, quiet and comfortable suite overlooking the Bay, great views from the 8th floor. We stopped from Friday to Monday and had no problems with unruly children, found staff helpful & courteous (the restaurant made us feel very special) complimentary breakfast was fine and particularly enjoyed happy hour early evening. I could not fault this Hotel, given that the cost was very reasonable and would not hesitate to stay there again.
Very nice hotel...
Very nice Embassy Suites in a very pleasant location right on the Bay (request a bayview room). Great jogging path along ther Bay. Public computer for use at the front desk. Only negative is that children sleeping on sleeper sofa in living room have to enter bedroom to go to bathroom (in most Embassy hotels, the bathroom is just outside the bedroom). Excellent value at a nice hotel. We'd stay there again.
San Francisco Bay
We stayed for 5 days at the Embassy in Burlingame super location right on the water, clean rooms, good food, very busy on weekends in pool. No charge for parking like downtown 20-30 dollars. Great walking path by water.
Good Family Experience
Location of hotel is great--directly on the Bay--worth the extra for bayview room. Lobby and pool areas well maintained, and breakfast/afternoon receptions were very well done.
Rooms are tired--nothing wrong, just plain and a little dark. Are a sharp contrast to rest of the hotel, which appears very modern and well maintained.
Again, very positively recommend for families, but would not pay premium to stay here travelling alone or a couple.
Never Stay on Saturday Night!
This is a pretty nice Embassy Suites...perfect location for touring the San Francisco area. We stayed for one week in March, 2003 on spring break. The staff was very nice and helpful...very friendly! We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the evening manager's reception. With two boys, we often stay at Embassy Suites for the extra space. Our suite was fairly nice...nothing special, however. We were thoroughly enjoying our spring break...until Saturday night! Don't EVER stay at this hotel on a Saturday night! It becomes "Animal House" for hundreds of local kids who cram into suites, running up and down the halls, yelling, shouting profanities, turning the pool into a cesspool. I was still awake at 1 AM. Breakfast was a JOKE...so crowded you couldn't find a place to sit...kids were rudely cutting into the line! I heard from several people there that this was NOT uncommon. I refused to pay for that night and urged other guests to do the same! The assistant manager was initially not even nice about the situation, then calmed down and apologized. We were pretty satisfied with our stay until the Saturday night fiasco! The on-site restaurant was not very good, so even if you stay during the week, go to Kincaid's (the food is excellent!). We would NOT stay there again over a weekend!!!
It's with a heavy heart...
It pains me to say that I can't recommend this hotel anymore. I've stayed here 8 times from 2000-2003. the quality of my stays has been going consistently down. I do love the place as I've had so many wonderful memories associated with it and my stays in SF. The lobby is beautiful as well as the atrium area. I loved the Steamers Restaurant that used to be there - it's a shame it's gone. The location is excellent and the walking path along the bay has been worn thin by all the walking I've done on it! But alas, at one point, you have to go to the room. This place definately needs a room overhaul. the furniture looks nice, but is no longer comfortable. The rooms are dark, in part while the glass windows to the outside are usually so filthy. I had a bay view once where I took a bath towel and risked my life by climbing onto the balcony to clean the windows. The bathroom is not good at all. It's small and the sink annoys me no end with the seperate handles for hot/cold water - very dysfunctional. What I always marveled at is for all the Embassy Suites hotels I've stayed at, this place has the least satisfying breakfast. Nothing stands out at all. By the way, for those who stay here, go to Kincaids Bay House Restaurant a couple hundred yards away - it's fantastic. Bottom line - when they make over the rooms, I'll be back.
Great hotel, great location right on the Bay. I used the Bay side jogging path every day and loved it. Good size hotel, good restaurant, large suites. Make sure you ask for a Bay view room, its worth it.

... from high end to tacky souvenirs. We stopped at the houseboat community which has about 400 stationary houseboats docked along the waterways. They used to float around the Bay but authorities put a stop to that and now they not only pay property tax but also berthing fees. Some looked very modern and well kept, others looked junky. The drive to Muir Woods was a steep climb and a very windy road with steep drop offs and no ...

After snacking on the universal goodness of a six inch tuna Subway, we again picked up the tour thru the Barbary Coast, Levis Plaza with blue denim walls, the gillion dollar apartments of Russian Hill (a shoe box with a mezzanine), and San Francisco's other Bridge, the double-decked Oakland Bay.

This also seemed like a good place to get a shot of the decently size rental car :-)

Alamo has a very cool feature on their website that allows you to check-in and register all your details and decide on any local add-ons, so no need to wait in line. After navigating our slightly massive Chevrolet Tahoe out of the garage we're off to the Marriott for a good night's sleep.

The rest of the visit was doing laundry and grocery shopping. Stuff that's pretty tough to wax poetic about. Nor does it make the most fascinating reading so we'll sign off from here for now.
Next stop the Encinal Yacht Club and the first Baja HaHa meeting. (How's that for a teaser?)
