“Excellent facility for your traveling needs”
In staying over night 3-5 times a year with car storage and complimentary shuttle to and from airport, I have found this facility to be always the very best both in amenities and staffing. This is my go to whenever I fly out of San Francisco.

“Very well run hotel, restaurant, and shuttle”
We have stayed many times at this hotel when flying out of SFO. They are always able to accommodate our request for bottom floor room and are able to check in early. The shuttle service is prompt and the restaurant good too.
