    Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel San Francisco Bay Redwood City

    An Excellent Choice

    from

    We stayed at the Sofitel for four nights (Sunday through Wednesday) over the Labor Day holiday. Because this hotel is located in a business park area, we were able to get an excellent rate for three of the four nights ($89) on the last night the rate reverted to the regular $189 online rate.

    Our room, though not large was clean, quiet and very comfortable (one of the best hotel beds I've ever slept in). The restaurant (Gigi) was excellent. Breakfast prices were reasonable, lunch and dinner was more expensive but the food was well worth the price. Staff were friendly and helpful. Owing to our schedule we needed to pick up sandwiches from the Le Marche gift shop/coffee bar. They were excellent and reasonably priced.

    Although the hotel is in a business park area, it is only a short drive to other restaurants in the area.

    Good Hotel

    from

    Good Clean and Quiet hotel. Currently undergoing upgrading renovation. Nice coffee shop with great sandwiches. Easy to location - just off 101 south of SFO International Airport. Need a car though as there are no restaurents etc within walking distance

    Great hotel with a French feel

    from

    I've stayed at this hotel several times for business travel. The location is not the greatest (it's probably a 20-30 minute drive south of San Francisco), but it's a great hotel. The hotel staff is always helpful and friendly. The restaurant has great food. And the rooms are very nice. They have more nice "touches" than most hotels - things like a more comfortable couch, nicer looking drapes, nicer toiletries, great pillows, and things like that. There is definitely a French feel to the hotel (which I say as a positive comment).

    My FAVORITE SF spot

    from

    I stayed at the Sofitel while a part of my girlfriend's bridal party. We had our bridesmaids dresses pressed the night before on site and the dresses were returned with water stains. The hotel brought up strawberries and champagne, comped the rooms (three rooms for 2 nights) and paid for ALL of the bridesmaids dresses--and yes, they were tacky and expensive!!

    I was very impressed with the service.

    So, recently my husband and I stayed for a weekend getaway while in SF. We had a marvelous time and enjoyed the hotel. The beds are amazing and the room was very quiet--even though we were next to a service elevator. As before, the service was excellent. The hotel was undergoing some renovations wich will make it even more fabulous--but it didn't effect our stay at all.

    GREAT PLACE!

    from

    I stayed at this place for a couple of nights in December 2004 with my boyfriend. It was a great romantic getaway. The cleanliness, the staff, the service, and the decorations of the room were excellent. The view from our window was great. For the price and the service, you can't beat it! This is a great place to stay if you're looking for your expectations to be met!

    Great weekend values at the Sofitel

    from

    Lovely hotel with impeccable service. Half way between San Francisco and San Jose. Easy access to 101. Tranquil and reasonably priced on the weekends.

    Good clean luxurious property, close to City

    from

    Excellent property. I did a lot of research on hotels in San Fran before selecting this one. On my last trip, I had stayed downtown in the city at the Hyatt Regency but this time, I wanted to stay out of the city for my vacation due to planned trips to Napa etc. I got some cheaper hotels like Hilton Garden Inn next to the airport, but paid $10/ night more for Sofitel due to its 4-star status (still under $90/ night for standard room), good ratings on this site, and wanting no bad-experiences and surprises. I was very happy with my decision. Main reasons--

    *its a luxurious property, so no worries about poorly maintained rooms, broken couches etc--

    *its placed next to/ on a lagoon so is beautiful and relaxing,

    *free wireless access in the lobby,

    *24-hr fitness center with fruits etc,

    *decent bar and coffee shop (slow but good b'fast)--the restaurant is not great but there are many eating choices available within a 7-10 min drive.

    Above all: its not too expensive for a 4-star,

    *the staff is reasonably friendly,

    *the rooms are GOOD SIZED STANDARD ROOMS and CLEAN, VERY CLEAN,

    *free Evian water bottles, and the location is not bad if you have a car (free shuttle from SFO).

    A little too obsessed with France (menus in french and english, Paris metro map etc!) but I would definitely go back there by choice--which is, i guess, the ultimate compliment for a hotel.

    Clean, crisp, minus the coffee

    from

    Had a great stay at the Sofitel. Rooms are impeccable. Linens are crisp & clean. Just don't count on getting your morning coffee from the bakery Petit Marche in the lobby. The line is 10 people deep no matter what time of day. I know things are a little show in Cali, but this will make you crazy. SO ask for a coffee pot in your room.

    Very nice place

    from

    very nice hotel. i got this place via priceline. it's clean. food at the restaurant was okay. bar is a fun place and they are generous with drinks. we really enjoyed staying there. and getting to san francisco was pretty easy,,,about 15 to 20 mins driving.

    Another Great stay at this lovely hotel

    from

    Stayed at this hotel last year a couple of times and could not wait to get back. Last time I stayed in a great suite but this time I stayed in a Standard room... it was very nice. I am not the best travel writer so I will keep this short. I spend time in my room and I have just a few requirements. The room must be VERY clean, the bed VERY comfortable and the service VERY attentive.

    This property never fails to exceed my expectations! In fact, I prefer this location while visiting SFO. I have easy access to the entire area and I am "away from it all" which is nice.

    Stay here with confidence!

    San Francisco Trolley Car...

    ... up! The staff were friendly, so much so that one of the waitresses ran after us as we left to give SJ and ER a hug.

    A City Sightseeing tour in a double decker bus awaits us tomorrow so we can begin to get to grips with the city. Looking forward to it.

    Oh, we should mention that after days of hearing Emma sing the Wiggles song 'San Francisco Trolley Car', it wasn't in her repertoire today...

    ... We booked out tickets a few months before and glad we did as it was already booked up until late September. It had come to our last day in San Francisco. We took a walk to Lombard St, the crookedest road in the world, something you have to see when your here, and spent the rest of the day shopping, with 2 trips to the Cheesecake Factory fitted in haha. And it was time to say goodbye to the girls Marian & Caoibhe as they made their way back home ...

    Woke up to a beautiful morning. Hardly any fog and the sun was warm. The wind was still icy though and I had to wear my light jacket most of the day. I put the heavy one on at around 5pm.



    I got the bus to downtown and got on the hop on hop off bus which took me to 3 different areas of the city. The first area was downtown itself. Some of it I have seen when I have ...
