    Historical Traveler Reviews Larkspur Landing South San Francisco

    WOW ... great place!

    from

    Amazing place!! Full kitchen with everything needed (not that I cooked). Extremely clean and well decorated. Bathroom with my favorite Bath and Body soap. They offer a pillow menu, incredible :)

    Free breakfast, cookies and fruits late afternoon. Full size desk with free internet access.

    I'd definitely refer this hotel to my friends.

    Good Choice for Families with a Car

    from

    Since we required our car for a weekend trip to San Francisco, we needed a hotel for a family of 3 PLUS parking. This set-up is very hard to find for less than $250/night incl parking in the city. So, we decided to stay just 10 minutes outside of the city and it ended up being the perfect choice. For $109/night we had an executive suite which has a bedroom, a living room with a sofa bed, a kitchen and even two tv's! The bedding is verrrry cozy and the general feel of the place is that someone was truly thinking about comfort when they designed the rooms. The price even includes a continental breakfast buffet which has nice choices for kids and adults alike. The parking is free and there's plenty of it, unlike the city.

    Great Hotel Option for San Francisco

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Larkspur for the first part of our California honeymoon. We absolutely loved it. The room was clean and spacious, and we loved the convenience of having an ice maker in the refrigerator (no walking through halls with a bucket). The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in; my husband swears we will buy one just like it someday. The double vanity in the bathroom was great; as was the dvd player in the living room. One of the best conveniences for people traveling for long periods is the free laundry facilities. All you have to buy is the soap and fabric softener (note to the hotel: sheets would be more convenient than the liquid - timing the rinse cycle is difficult). We also enjoyed the free internet access and fresh baked cookies each evening. If you rent a car for your stay in San Francisco (as we did), you will also appreciate the free parking and location. It was a short drive into downtown San Francisco and what driving we did around town made us appreciate our location even more. I highly recommend the Larkspur and would definitely stay there again.

    Best in the area

    from

    Stayed here for 2 nights to enjoy the sights of SF. Can't say enough good things. From the down comforter, 6 bed pillows, double sink bathroom, relaxing living room, complimentary snacks, attentive and quick front desk, free parking... Best hotel in the area for the money. We have stayed at 2 other nearby 2 1/2 star hotels but this just doesn't compare. 4 star stay with 2 star prices.

    Relax!

    from

    We had a morning flight out of San Francisco but there was no hurry because the new Larkspur Landing is five minutes from the airport. We arrived earlier than check-in time, but the staff was helpful and had a room prepared for us . The one bedroom suite was clean, beautiful, stocked with snacks, and provided high speed internet. The bed was really comfortable and though it is near the airport, the room was quiet even with the window open. Breakfast was served in the lounge with a nice variety of food. So good, it would have been helpful to have trays to carry things back to our suite. We could have stayed in the city and worried, fighting the rush hour traffic trying to make our flight but happily we chose to relax that morning at the Larkspur Landing!

    Fantastic Hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night (we were in town for a late night event and didn't want to have to drive home). The entire experience was almost perfect. The staff was efficient and friendly, the room was super comfortable and came with a full-size fridge and a kitchenette (dishwasher, microwave, sink, two-burner stove, pots & pans, etc.). Chocolates on the bedside table were a plus. You can even order specialty pillows at no extra charge for an even better night's sleep. Only problem was the hotel guide in the room said the continental breakfast was served until 11am. But when we went downstairs at 10:30am, we found out that it is only served until 10am. No problem, there were free apples in the lobby and a welcome gift basket in the room that had granola bars, popcorn, tea and coffee. That was fine for us. We will definitely stay here again!

    For the money, the best San Francisco airport hotel

    from

    Huge suite with living room, boardroom (!), double vanity, two closets, kitchen would have made this room good value even if it cost more than other airport hotels. Except that it didn't.

    Staff were from the Ritz Carlton training school - uniformly friendly and professional. Included a constantly replenished continental breakfast in a bright cozy room with fireplace, free bedside water, fruit and chocolate that I don't often get even from five star hotels. Specialty pillows available on request, free of course. Along with free parking, free 24 hour business centre, and free in-room high speed Internet access.

    A sign on the way out asks the rhetorical question: "Did we exceed your expectations?" Like I said, a rhetorical question.

    Great Stay, Great Suite

    from

    The hotel had accediently booked our reservations, but they were nice enough to upgrade us to the San Francisco Bay Suite. What a view and accomidation. I would highly suggest this economical hotel. Free parking (which is hard to get in San Fran) While in San Francisco check out Lombard Street, Alcatraz, go yosemite park and ride on a trolly.

    Convenient & cheap in South City

    from

    We got this hotel reservation at random from Priceline. For the money (fourty bucks), it was very well worth it on a Friday night.Room was clean with a fully equipped kitchen, including pots & pans, coffee maker etc. A nice extra is is the CD player...! Great when you're tired of cable TV.We tried the internet access downstairs (there's a hookup in the room if you have your own laptop) which is fast but has a very annoying welcome page that you must click through each time you go to a new page. This also prevented us from being able to order theater tickets online since the POST data of the web form was not forwarded on.The receptionist did not know how to get to the CalTrain station even though it is quite nearby (almost walking distance), but offered to get the shuttle guy to take us there. There wasn't enough time to pick up that offer and we drove to the station with bad directions, catching the train just barely.If you're coming back on the CalTrain, look for the Gateway shuttle; it should take you to the hotel for free.

    Nice new property, good for business travel

    from

    Nice, new facility. Full kitchen and free high-speed internet access are very nice amenities. Free laundry is icing on the cake for any business traveler stuck on the road for an extended period of time. (Don't bother using the service that calls you when washers or dryers are open, it doesn't work very well) Very small gym and outdoor whirlpool are available. There isn't a restaurant, so you may be tempted to go to the Hilton Garden Inn (sister property across the parking lot)...I wouldn't recommend it. Breakfast is ok, but all other food is pretty disappointing. Front Desk Service is adequate: friendly, but kinda slow.

    ... with it really, just because it's so touristy and full of nick-nack cheap souvenir shops. But hanging around San Francisco and seeing all the city has to offer was really cool. It's quite a navigable city, because it isn't that big, so getting across town doesn't actually take that long. It's the second densest city in America, after New York of course. There's a lot packed into that small space. It's definitely a place I'd recommend to go.

    ... me who isn't really into walking. They do also offer harder hikes through the woods so that you can get views of the trees higher up the edges - we did try this and ended up turning around after 20 mins as it was a bit tiring - especially after walking across the bridge earlier.

    I think an evening of chilling out is in order - bring on the final full day in San Fran tomorrow!

    "The mountains are calling and I must go," famously attributed to John Muir (namesake of Muir Woods), could be a suitable subtitle for this blog. He is honored with a park just outside of San Francisco, highlighting coastal Redwood forest. I'll honor him by a visit and blog post.

    The trip to SFO is a good one. The girls each have a TV in the seat back in front of them so they watch movies and shows.

    Reminds me of the Visa commercials...
    Extra legroom in economy plus seating... $150
    Direct TV at your kids seats... $30
    4 hour flight with no complaints... PRICELESS!!!

    There is a kid in the row behind us who is maybe 6 years old, and is LOUD. He is playing games on his iPad and takes great joy in his accomplishments. ...
