My family and I stay here every other month so it’s become sort of a home away from home Really happy to see the cooked to order breakfast is back Omelets and pancakes plus potatoes and sausage along with the normal American continental options

Would love to see some alternative meats offered (turkey or plant based sausage)If you can get a room with a view, it really is lovely I love the trail along the bay There are bikes for rental as wellThe pool wasn’t very clean on our last visit so that could use some regular attentionJulie at the front desk is a gem Airport shuttle is convenient

This property doesn’t want customers who can only stay one night I was traveling for business, I am a Hilton Honors member and was staying one night only as I had training nearby The hotel refused to book me for one night on a Thursday night! They gave me the run around telling me that they were fully booked

Then they finally admitted that they don’t make one night reservations Apparently that’s a hotel “policy” now Well, that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen from an Embassy Suites I’ll be taking my business to the Marriott down the street since they still value one night customers! By the way they have also changed their happy hour to 5-6:30 with only 2 drinks per customer We used to hold after training business meetings here and enjoyed the happy hour As responsible adults I think we all should be able to choose how many drinks we decide to have Very bad service from this Hilton property and I will never stay here again I know they don’t care that they’ve lost my business, but just a warning to others that if you need a one night stay you can forget it

Saia Halaliku

The suite we had was great The hotel was easy to get in, and out It was also within a short distance to all the attractions that we wanted to get in this trip

The room was very clean, and a pretty good size The continental breakfast was very good The swimming pool, and the sauna seemed to be very busy, and the common areas were kept Although this property does not have a kitchen, or a full restaurant

If you are ever in need of a warm, clean, and comfortable hotel, Larkspur Landing is the place to stay The staff was so nice and professional The rooms were clean, comfortable, and fully equipped

There was a full kitchen, desk, ironing board and iron, and hair dryer They offer free Wi-Fi service for their guests and continental breakfast with coffee or tea in the early morning There is an additional $13 parking fee If I’m ever in need again, of a room in the San Francisco area, this is where I’ll stay

Nicholas Mati

Overall, the hotel seemed kind of run down and poorly maintained I started off in room 324, but moved to 325 after a couple of days because the bathroom was consistently filling up with cigarette smoke Room 325 didn’t have ventilation issues, but did have a number of other issues such as a cracked stove top, missing cabinetry facing, a cabinet door that wouldn’t close all the way under the sink, and a couple other cosmetic issues

Outside of the room, the hallway feels dated and the second elevator was inoperative for over two weeks during my stay Even the elevator inspection was dated with a document posted stating that the previous certificate was still valid until an inspector could be dispatched This wouldn’t be so alarming except that the document dates from 2019 I know there was a pandemic and all in between then an now, but we’re not exactly in the middle of a lockdown as of May, 2022

We stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon after arriving in California and I can honestly say we had the best hospitality experience of our lives When you walked into Sheila’s home you were walking into the life of what my husband and I believe to be one of the most interesting people in San Francisco, and quite possibly the entire world You’re immediately awe struck with the way the house is impeccably curated with pieces that tell of Sheila’s storied life

Sheila herself takes all of her guests on a personal tour when they arrive showing the accommodations/amenities and sharing stories including those of her modeling career and passion for fashion As if the experience could get any better, Sheila makes sure to provide her guests with a buffet style breakfast each morning, in fact she prepares the breakfast (including a fantastic quiche) herself! She even offered to transport us to the airport for a small fee when we needed to pick up our rental car We were saddened to stay in a different accommodation in SF on the tail end of our trip and all we could think about is how we wish we were at Noe’s Nest again I don’t know if there’s anywhere in the world that compares to Sheila’s space and we already look forward to the day we return to SF to stay here again

Morgan Butler

We stayed in the suite room for 5 nights on a recent visit from Hawaii and had an amazing time Thank you Sheila for the private tours and party invites You were a truly gracious host

Everyone at the B&B was so friendly and helpful Normally we want to avoid everyone at B&Bs but here we hoped to run into the proprietress and staff The B&B was beautiful and quirky 420 friendly is a plus The frittata is the bomb Highly recommended

Patricia R

We absolutely LOVED Noe’s Nest It is truly one of a kind in a city that’s already one of a kind We stayed for two days in the Garden Cabana room with access to the stunning garden and it was perfect

Definitely our go-to place in San Francisco from now on And the host, Sheila, is a wonderfully kind and interesting woman Highly recommended!

This hotel was a saviour for me! After a cancelled United flight I arrived at around 3am, check in was easy, room was large and very clean The bed was super comfortable and black out curtains fantastic Very quiet room, great facilities and lovely staff

The area is also picturesque and safe, and you can walk to Starbucks The food in the restaurant is basic but fine Definitely recommend the hotel, thank you all

Chandana Ravichandra

This hotel was such a great experience The hotel was clean and as promised The staff were the most kind and amenable people

I wanted to change the dates of my stay and they helped me without any concern They were also kind enough to waive off parking fees for us for staying extra days with them It was so great, I came to stay twice in the same place It’s 30 minutes away from SFO downtown(by car) and <10 minutes from SFO airport They also offer shuttle services to the airport Recommend 10/10

Google Fan

One of the best in terms of location and amenities! That view of the cove in the Bay combined with quality rooms and amenities gives you that much – needed breather from life’s daily hustle and bustle Definitely going back soon! Please have that elevator fixed though, good thing we were only at the 2F 😉 And I hope the lobby bar can sell coffee in the morning

Kelly McGaffick

Great value for the quality and brand Breakfast was great good variety throughout the week Room and bathroom was clean and updated

I appreciated the good shower pressure and crisp linens Location was quiet and we never had any problem finding parking after coming back to the hotel after a day in the city Quality customer service and appreciated the daily housekeeping (upon request) too I would stay here again

Timothy Hoffman

This hotel gets high marks across the board Especially notable is the kindness, warmth, and hospitality of the staff The welcoming and friendly young lady at the front desk at check-in- the young lady during the day that always said hello, the young man on the night shift who was welcoming and Erika of Housekeeping

Hospitality here ranks among the best The entire hotel is C L E A N ! The breakfast isanother high point and your hotel staff gets it right in each area Charissa sent an email asking for any feedback before I checked out and that was a nice touchThis organization understands hospitality and your message from them is a clear example of why this is such a great staff Okay in a nutshell – CLEAN ROOM and ENTIRE HOTEL, GREAT STAFF, HOSPITALITY+, and proximity to airport at a fair price make this the place to stay when visiting San Francisco and surrounding area

Noemi Elias

Checked in rather late (around midnight) and there were several people in the lobby drinking, being loud UnmaskedWhen we got to the room however, it was quaint and nice with a king size bed for the price we paid

Even though the bed wasn’t the most comfortable it did its job and we slept well til around 6:30amThe reason this hotel is getting two stars isn’t because the room comfort was terrible, it’s because 1) we had to pay $14 for parking and 2) we were rudely awakened by a Joel Osteen sermon and very political TV ads at FULL blast by our next door neighbors The walls are so thin I could hear the other person clapping and praising at 6:30am on a Sunday morning Which good for them but I wanted to enjoy my sleepOn the bright side they offer a full breakfast Red velvet waffles were delicious! I wouldn’t have known they have breakfast had my neighbor not woken me up but gotta take my gains

Sofia Colorado

I’m absolutely shocked that this is rated as “four stars” Let’s start with the positive first, there is a shuttle to and from the airport and the people at the reception were kind and very friendly The view from the main lobby with the big windows is nice as well

However, the shuttle is extremely rickety and loud and took almost 15 minutes waiting while we saw all the other airport hotel shuttles pass by several times The closest thing I can compare it to is a shuttle in our travels to third world countries, really quite decayed The check-in was fast but we just needed a clean and comfortable spot to lay our heads for one night (we arrived at 1 am) so the room and bed was of paramount importance The decor of the entire hotel is like a slightly nicer version of an outdated Olive Garden When you arrive to the room, hoping for some refuge there is a slight musty odor and you instantly feel claustrophobic I’m 5,3 and can touch the ceilings Enough said Perhaps the biggest let down was the bed It was so very hard, like a summer camp cot I recall turning on my side and losing feeling in my arm because it was so hard, not good for side sleepers or any kind of sleeper for that matter My husband also pointed out the STAINS on the side of the bed, God only knows from what Disgusting and unhygienic The conditioner and shampoo in the bathrooms were attached to the wall, and the conditioner bottle was EMPTY And there was absolutely no body lotion to be found, no toiletries of any kind except a bar of soap Then, when I went to go call the front desk to request said conditioner, the phone was BROKEN so we had to call Marriott corporate and wait 7 minutes for someone to direct our call to the proper person Lastly, I was hoping that the breakfast included would be their saving grace and for the most part it was fine but I asked for a sunny side up egg and most of it was uncooked and not edibleOverall, I would not return and would highly advise Marriott to stop deceiving their customers into believing this is anything remotely related to a luxury 4-star hotel

Yvette Nameth

Update: after this review I managed to get in touch with hotel staff They were nice enough to switch my room quickly and the new room is smell free and fine Staff was exceptional when I was able to talk to them

Original: I just checked in Front desk was friendly My non-smoking room smells like cigar and air freshener Ive tried to call the front desk 4x to ask for a different room Calls 1-3 rang 10-15 times and I hung up Call 4 rang 40+ times with no answer Never again will I stay here Short staffed doesn’t mean don’t answer phones of paying guests So I’m in a nasty room

Josh Montero

As far as airport hotels go, the Marriott is a really nice one The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and there is a large open space on the ground floor to relax Now, nobody spends their vacation at an airport hotel, so you don’t need the amenities others do

I have flown out of SFO before the crack of dawn a couple times and just needed a place to spend the night before departure so I could get to the airport quickly (which helps because they have a free shuttle that runs 24/7) The bar is good, food isn’t bad at all for hotel dining If you’re in transit and need a place to crash after a late arrival or before an early take off, this is the spot

Paul Whyte

The check in process was very seamless, and I was able to check in early The general aesthetic of the lobby was fresh and spunky The rooms were adequately designed in a rather stylishly simple, yet functional set up

The decor was modern and cute The beds were very comfortable The gym was decent , and served the purpose for a short stay There were lots of food and dining options with walking distance… the location was great The staff was very polite and helpful and rather accommodating The stay overall was wonderful


Clean, modern rooms and big lobby, standard size rooms with very nice bathrooms! Things to be known that weren’t issues for us whatsoever, but we didn’t realize when booking: no microwave in the room and there was just a shower (no tub) I’m sure the room description was clear about that but I didn’t make the booking so didn’t realize until arriving The staff were super friendly to me and my little kids, great parking and the pool added some fun for the kids

Kristen Kirksey

I had an excellent stay at Aloft Check in was fast The room was spacious and very clean

Decor is fun Less than 5 minutes to SFO Though I did not utilize the airport shuttle I saw it operating throughout the day and night The best part of my stay was enjoying the amenities, including games, couches, bar, and cafe in the inviting lobby space Pool and outdoor space were great too Right across the street from park where you can watch planes take off and land This is a great choice if you are traveling with kids like I was I will 100% stay again

Great hotel for a conference! Stayed here for four nights for a work conference Check in was super easy using the online system and I was able to get my key card right away when I got to the hotel Rooms are clean and the hotel is beautiful with a large glass atrium over the center

Mandatory quiet hours from 9pm to 7am make this a great stay for a business trip! Plenty of elevators so no waiting in the lobby Pool on-site but it doesn’t seem crowded, even in late July Great conference room with space for a huge event, easily over 200 people Conference food is higher end as well with 3 courses and two meat options at lunch and full coffee service in the morning and afternoon snack as well Would definitely stay here again!

Debbie Cusic

A very very pleasant stay Quick efficient check-in by a very nice person who was not only courteous but helpful All the staff was friendly and seemed happy

The room was very quiet and could be made very dark Everything was sparkling clean The bed and pillows were comfortable The cake cup coffee maker was handy Would love to stay again

T. Farris

Outstanding Hotel Experience Gotta mention the Atrium area is first rate with the restaurant, coffee, and snack areas with tons of seating in a seemingly open air environment Stayed four nights and paid extra for a Suite

The suite had a bedroom with a full bathroom attached separate area in the bathroom with the tub and a television Separate glass shower and private toilet room Not to mention, a half bathroom next to the suites entrance door The kids used the sofa bed in the living room Tons of seating besides to sofa and loveseat in the suite Four different chairs in the living room area An eight person dining room table Also a three chair island in the kitchen area Service staff was excellent and friendly Would definitely recommend and return to stay Big fan of the Hyatt brand, stayed at several Hyatt Places all over and finally stepped up our stay with a Regency Only draw back is the parking structure is very dirty A lot of trash on the ground and darkly lit Needs better lighting at night

Emma Dix

I would not hesitate to recommend the Inn SF The hotel is a lovely old mansion house, decorated in a beautifully old-fashioned boutique style There is a wonderful roof terrace with great views across the city, and an absolute oasis of serenity in the rear garden

I didn’t get a chance to use the hot tub but it looked wonderfulI booked one of the smaller rooms which was absolutely ideal and spotlessly clean; there is a great guide to each room on the website so you can find one to suit youBut what really sets this hotel apart from anywhere else is the staff Marty states on his website that he wants every guest to feel like a friend, and he certainly achieved that He clearly loves running the hotel, sharing its history and his stories with his guests with humour His passion for the hotel and his guests shines through and is what makes a stay here really special

Mari Brown

Absolutely lovely place to visit I must start by saying the owner Marty, was so so sweet and hilarious Gave us a tour and made us laugh so hard

Thank you very much for that you made it very memorable Very clean rooms, and a totally gorgeous space The breakfast as shown in my photos was so thought out and had a little off everything for everyone including GF This building is 3 stories and has access to the roof The roof had such a beautiful view you won’t want to miss it If you want parking bring a compact car or you won’t fit 5 reserved spots of parking if you pay the $30 to secure it Very small garage 24 hours coffee, hot tub and access which was nice We stayed in room 36 (forgot to get a picture) even though it was a small room it was just enough for what we needed While it is pricey I absolutely would visit again, it just was such a lovely experience


Great location, easy to get in and out of the city and very close to downtown SF and the good restaurants and bars on Mission street The staff was wonderful Marty, the owner, is such a great host and storyteller 😂This victorian style hotel is well maintained

The beds were very firm, too firm for my liking The breakfast was exceptional! I, especially, enjoyed the view of the sunset from the rooftop I can’t wait for my next stay at this hotel😁

Nicole at Front Desk was very courteous and welcoming I checked in after midnight, and our airport shuttle unloaded about six room room accommodations She was alone and handled the situation efficiently and gave individual attention

Her demeanor invited our appreciation and humor at the situationI’m happy the breakfast buffet is back The staff serviced the full cafe, bar and extra-seating area gracefully and effectively

Daniel Wicker

Outstanding hospitality displayed by all staff The property is very clean, restaurant has excellent tasting food The decor of the interior of the hotel is very comforting

Lots of space for all business and event meeting needsExcellent location with 24/7 shuttle service and a Bed that is perfect for a good nights sleepThe manager has done an exceptional job by the way things are ran at this property and the way the hotel looks 5/5 rating from me and I look forward to returning again!

Sarah McCanna

Our room’s linens and carpets had stains all over The remote for the TV wouldn’t work The bathtub drain was clogged so we had to shower in shin deep water and the grout was moldy

No exhaust fan in bathroom and room wouldn’t cool down even with the AC set to 66 so it was hot and muggy The alarm clock in the room went off at midnight on our first night The beds were uncomfortable and the fridge was full of freezer frost and barely kept our drinks cold This room needs some serious attention and maintenance for it to be a comfortable or pleasant place to stay The pool and hot tub were our saving gracebut then the hot tub was shut down after our first day there We were given a parking ticket that we had to get sorted out because it was their mistake Also know that AFTER you book your room, you’ll get an email letting you know that parking is an extra $30 PER DAY The housekeepers were all so sweet and had great manners The front desk staff seemed as though it was an inconvenience that they had to be at work It’s rather unfortunate because this hotel has so much potential If all you’re interested in is a nice fitness area, a pretty pool and a convenient location then book a stay! If you’re looking for a clean and comfortable room, look elsewhere

Thomas Novelli

Fantastic, near flawless hotel Service from start to finish was excellent Obviously the location cannot be best, especially for earlier morning flights and aviation geeks

The bed is extremely comfortable and easily induced a great night sleep Charging locations conveniently located next to bed and elsewhere throughout the room The bathroom is beautiful and offers generous space The fitness center is wonderful I’ve already book several more nights at my new favorite hotel in all of California

Amy Connors

A phenomenal experience with pretty much all staff The check in staff always charming and seem to be great with kids as well The valet always quick and on the roll

The gift shoppe quick and fun The house keeping staff sweet and efficient The restaurant was really tasty and the bar equally fun and delicious For the two nights of my stay the noise was minimal and the beds were super cozy Can’t recommend enough

Rick Deckard

What can I say that other reviewers have not already elaborated on? Just a one night stay before our flight out to Logan this is so convenient! Step off the elevator to the tram and on to your gate! Top Shelf accommodations we had Room 943 Freeway side the double pane glass is so thick we didn’t hear any traffic at all All modern fixtures with huge Flat Panel I like how the master bath floor lights come on automatic as you walk towards the bathroom at night

The only con we experienced is the water pressure seemed a bit low for shower? Plenty hot but flow was restricted Linda in the Twin Crafts Market for a quick breakfast on the way to our flight was a shining star! Don’t lose Linda! We will back for just the Quail & Crane restaurant! Get the hearth roasted salmon dish The Best!

Staff very nice A basic hotel/motel to stay for a day or two close to the airport Nothing to complain about basic amenities Location is about 30 min away from the city via car/uber, more than an hour taking public transport Couple of restaurants close by I know they might be bound by COVID regulations but there were a couple of things that did not really work and that we did not expect to encounter in spring 2022 Restaurant and airport shuttle not operating The most minimalistic breakfast and vending machines not working

Nice suite, clean and comfortable Appreciated that the complimentary breakfast included hot food optionsSome have mentioned the noise from the train, In building 2, I never heard a peep but a family member in building 3 did hear and found it annoying

Bed was comfy and the location was convenient and staff were pleasant and courteous

Hotel itself is very clean This review is specifically for their front desk staff who are extremely unwelcoming When I walked up to the front desk, NONE of the three staff members working even bothered to say “welcome/hello/hi”, nope, not even a smile

This was a recurring issue throughout my stay They are not even helpful, when I asked a few questions about the area and food recommendations, the front desk people could not be bothered to answer, and instead were very dismissive Given the cost per night, and the newness of the hotel, it would be nice to have workers at the front desk who make a guest feel welcome Given that its the only hotel in of its quality in the area, guests are kind of locked into receiving the bad treatment Do better Marriott, the world is too hard, can you please employ folks who make business travelers feel more welcome?

Room was clean for the most part, except for some funky stain on floor near toilet and on the curtains I can guess what goes on in this hotel being so near a couple pharmaceutical companies, and the lobby bar being pretty busy However I was there with my son for drop off at SFSU and that was really convenient

Food was great in the restaurant, the wait staff was really nice, as well as the front desk crew The not so good is the water pressure in the rooms is barely strong enough to wash the soap I know we’re in a drought, but jeezus, after a long day of travel it would be nice to take a 3-5 min shower with some pressure


Our bed had fresh pee on it And when I called downstairs the incompetent lady in the front desk basically said I had peed on it lol she asked me if I wanted fresh sheets (no I wanted to sleep on the old dirty ones ) then she said she would talk to her coworker and let me know

let me know what? If I can get fresh sheets? The big solution they had for me was just turn the mattress over So either they never changed the sheets from the previous guest or they saw it and just added fresh sheets over the pee and expected me not to notice Either way it was disgusting

Great hotel, especially for Airline Commuting personnel Has a decent restaurant, however, only open for breakfast and dinner, not lunch There is a nice Diner next door, with primarily Asian food, or sandwiches for inexpensive dining in or takeaway

Hotel Staff are always accommodating If you have any issues during your stay, the staff respond immediately No 30 minute wait at this place to get something addressed! They are on it, right away! Convenient 30 minute shuttle 24 hrs to/from airport No laundromat, unfortunately Many hotels offer free or inexpensive washer/dryer accommodations, and I would love it if this hotel also offered, however, it is not offered

I hosted a family reunion here The space was great for all our events and space where we just hung out was comfortable and great The hotel staff were wonderful and friendly, bartender made good drinks

Rizsa in events was phenomenal! She was very responsive and helpful in planning throughout the year She worked with and accommodated all my needs related to my room block at a great room rate, staying within our determined budget, food selections by dietary needs, and meeting room set-up If she wasn’t available, other event staff were assets and assisted if needed I highly recommend this hotel for an event It is close to the airport and there it is across the street from the Bay that has a beautiful view and a place to walk along leisurely or for exercise

Denise Keefe

The airport shuttle was on time and comfortable The check in desk attendant was very positive and accommodating The hotel is comfortable and a great location in proximity to easy access to the airport and running paths

The room was clean and quiet The complimentary coffee in the lobby with large cups were greatly appreciated as was the delicious cookie on arrival I am making my next reservation here at the Doubletree, so I will be back this weekend

Nice lobby and staff, indoor pool and fitness area Nice view from the room The view was of a river like part of the bay, there was a garden outside with a gate only accessible in and out with a hotel key

The lobby was huge and had plenty of charging ports, a table for business, chairs, etc The indoor pool was nice and warm and has a handicap lift Thats the pros The cons are very hard beds, no microwave in the rooms, everything costs money including the breakfast and not a flat fee, by individual product The air conditioner thermostat is on the wall, but it runs a very old window metal one like you see in old hotels so of course it makes loud noises turning on and off The beds were so hard i slept on the floor instead Bathroom was spacious but the toilet was only about 6 inches off the floor with no rails or anything to help you up and it was in a nook, so no stretching out legs or having disabilities with that toilet So 50/50

Jason Smith

The rooms are good size and plenty of room and furnitureThere is a pool and jacuzzi, an exercise room and a couple gas grill if you want to cook something on the grillThe website says free grab n go continental breakfast, but they actually have a hot breakfast, eggs, potatoes, hot oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, muffins, juices, hot chocolate and coffee

Did some fishing right outside the building and also a great spot for a leisurely walk along the waterVery good value for the money

I don’t know why this hotel is highly rated! It’s an old residence inn that needs a lot of updating! Our room needed a lot of TLC! We got a double queen suite for the night Beds were ok for comfort All the handles for the doors in our rooms were falling off

The chair legs to the dining room table were all wobbly We had to leave a chair outside our room so they can take it away since it was one seat away from being broken We found old, funky, and filthy slippers under our bed— gross!The place seemed very short staffed and it was hard to get towels or anything else you needed I honestly feel like I should overpaid for this place Only pro: cable TV
