Saturday morning - here we go! Anton, our dog was dropped off yesterday at the breeder where he will live for the coming 3,5 weeks. It was strange to wake up without him whining and yawning for food, but we know he'll have a great time with Johanna and her family and their 3 Ridgebacks.

Early morning cab to the airport. We've only used …

San Francisco sleepover

Well we made it to San Francisco! I have to say I rather enjoyed premium economy, but Derek reckons that's only because I haven't tasted business class. He could be right….

Anyway, the best airline food I've ever had, and even Derek agrees that PE seems to be a pretty good deal, although his heart remains in business, but his wallet …

San Francisco, Days 1 & 2

A travel blog entry by jonpguthrie

... out of sleep for 7-8 hours. Everybody else was doing exactly the same. A very quiet night time flight to Honolulu, followed by our connecting flight HA 12 to San Francisco.

We soon saw the twinkling city lights from the air and arrived in San Francisco airport at about 10pm, and to the Grant Plaza Hotel at about 11pm. We got in our pyjamas and crashed out as soon as we went to bed.

... s so long I'm surprised we stayed awake, and we are not converted but at least we know what it's all about now.
In terms of plans, I couldn't help myself because I found out at the end of the week that Kira was teaching a follow up week in Berkeley starting Monday so I arranged with Kira do help her with some babysitting in exchange for part of the fees. We also tried to figure out how to stay closer to the workshop as it was almost a 2 hour commute from here ...

    Solid Marriott with easy access from SFO

    Booked this with Marriott Rewards, and it is a good, solid Marriott. There was a function going on so place was pretty busy, but even so, checkin etc was fast, professional and courteous as should be at a Marriott. Good size rooms, but bed is a bit too hard. We had dinner at the lobby bar, nothing extremely special but good, solid food. The only ?-mark was the ring of melted cheese that "fenced" (yes, you read it right) the Caesar Salad. Sliders were really good though.

    Very comfortable bed. Reasonably sound proofed rooms. And great in house restaurant - they do a great steak and a mean breakfast. Service good too. The hotel is a little tired, but perfectly adequate for a stopover.

    Marriott is the way to go


    Well, once again we struck gold with Marriott. We were in San Francisco for my wife's cousin's wedding and I didn't want to pay 150+ to stay in the city. The Burlingame Marriott was an affordable high class alternative. We stayed at a Marriott in Hawaii during the summer and were very pleased. This was no different. The staff was extremely professional, friendly and warm. They treated my wife and I like royalty. Our room was perfect with a great view of the bay, South San Fran and downtown. We were close to all the places we wanted to check out, especially Pizza My Heart in San Mateo! The bed was the best I have ever slept in. My wife refused to get up one morning because she wanted to sleep in it as much as possible. The parking, though 17 a night was ample and well guarded. The bathroom was nice, but the drain was broken and the toilet seat needed to be replaced. Also the phone books were a couple of years old which posed some difficulty for us. Other than those, I would highly recommend a stay here. If we stay in San Francisco again it will definitely be here.

    Great Honeymoon


    What a nice experience, we went on our honeymoon, and let the front desk know and she then gave us a room with ocean view and the VIP access to the 11th floor. The beds were so soft, and the rooms were roomy, the only problem was the bathroom. IT WAS SO SMALL. The halls are also very long. But we didnt park in their parking lot because of the price but the streets near by are just as safe. They have a nice spa and pool, if you like to excersize on vacation they have a nice health club too. I would most definitely go back here, very nice.

    A Mostly Positive Experience


    Room: space and décor

    Greedy but Nice


    Ive been staying at the Marriott SFO every year in August for the last 5 years. I must say that the staff has always been profesional for the most part. I did have a problem when my nephew (age 11) was lock out of his room last year and the desk manager refused to let him in unless his father with ID - (No compassion).

    The bathrooms are small but adequate. Their ATM charges excess fees ($ 3.50) and you have to pay for parking($ 13.00 per day) and when there is a special event (wedding) you have to search for a parking space even though you are a paying guest. All in all I rate rate the hotel a 3.5.

    Great Airport Hotel


    The Marriott is a great hotel. The beds are better than most 4-star hotels in the bay area and the rates are much better. This hotel is perfect for someone who is passing through town or catching an early flight out of SFO. The airport shuttle is convenient and runs as early as 5:30 am.

    Bathrooms like small boxes


    I was disappointed in the size of the bathroom. It was SO small! Also, we asked for a Bay View and they were nice enough to give it to us BUT there was only one set of elevators and we couldn't have been further away! I had two 4 year olds and a lot of luggage so it was a bummer.

    The pool was nice, but everyone was there and my 2 four year olds were frightened of the noise and crowds. I would never call this hotel a "4 * hotel"

    Almost Heavenly Bed


    Recently stayed at this property while others were at the Westin across the street, so here is a direct comparison. The Marriott is a far larger property, evident in the lobby and restaurant areas.

    Nice Place


    The SFO Marriott is a classy place, especially if you can nail a weekend rate. Top-notch hotel with great views of the airport and great service.

    Unfortunately that Saturday night there were huge wedding receptions in progress and the [not-free] parking lot was full. I had to cruise for awhile to find a spot, as I was not interested in parking across the street at another hotel.

    The room price was right, but don't expect luxury.


    We (1 adult, 2 children, 2 dbl-beds) stayed one August weekend night with a $76 Amex promotional rate. Our bayview room had a great view of the bay some 30 feet away, plus the sights of the SFO runways (impressive). Soundproofing is just fine. The room was small, and minimally appointed, as was the tiny bathroom. As was the case with our stay at the ($204 a night) Monterey Marriott, the hotel simply could not manage to satisfy a request for turndown services and fresh towels.

    Check-in and check-out were fast and painless. Front-desk and bell-desk staff were friendly. CAUTION: prices at the informal café restaurant were staggeringly expensive.

    I Couldn't Beleive it.......


    Fantastic Hotel. And for$80 (AAA rate) the best value I've had in years. The lobby was bright, clean, spacious and inviting. The staff was warm and welcoming and very helpful. The room was clean and had very good quality furnishings, especially the bed which somehow seemed to come very close to what the Westin and W are trying to achieve with their Heavenly Bed !!! The unobstructed view of the entire San Francisco Bay and East Bay area is totally unrivalled anywhere in's shocking. You can take a romantic walk along the water or just look at the bay from the lobby or the restaurant. I'd even consider making this hotel my home base for a long weekend trip to San Francisco.
