Aloft San Francisco Airport
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Millbrae
Reviewed 4 May 2013

We recenty travelled to SF and as we were arriving late we decided to stay close to the airport. This hotel was a real find- from the time we entered, it was enjoyable- great staff to greet us- busy lobby - alive with people you could see they were enjoying themselves. The decor is excellent. Rooms are good size, everything well laid out- beds, pillows excellent. Amenites were very good. AND, it was quiet. We didn't want much for breakfast and they have an excellent selection of foods at very reasonable prices. We both loved it and want to come back. Also, their suttle service was excellent and a short drive from the airport- on the quieter side of the landing strip.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are fine... A suggestion: join SPG rewards program- it is worth it.

This is a clean and comfrotable no frills hotel. No restaurant, though you can buy some food in the lobby. The lobby looks like it would be comfortable for drinks and chatting, but the seats are very far apart and the noise level high enough that close converstations are dificult. Looks more functional than it is. There is a nice place to sit outdoors. Same problem with seating, however.

The rooms are very clean and the bed is comfortable. The modern style eschews dressers, but there are no open shelves to take their place and the closet is very small. I had just enough room to hang shirts and a coat for one person for 3 nights. There is also no towel hook convenient to the entrance to the shower, so you have to step out to reach a towel.

These are quibbles, however. The staff are very helpful and the wi-fi is free!

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems, ask for a room near the elevator. The rooms farthest away are a loooo...

Hotel is located near SFO airport and excellent value. Hotel is very modern and draws younger crowds. I'v been told to request the room on the 6th floor and I did except my room was facing the back entrance of the hotel and was very quiet (even thought SFO is less than 1/4 mile away). Rooms on the other side face the SFO. Room was big and everything in it was comfortable and up to date. I would definitely highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great hotel and value in San Francisco area. Parking is little pricey but not more than most places around.

Room Tip: Choose a room on 6th floor.

Overall, I found this place to be a pleasant surprise. It's sleek and new, the rooms are clean and stylish and the sound-insulation is quite good (no hallway noise and reasonable airport noise levels, despite proximity to SFO). The staff is courteous and efficient and internet was free and reasonably speedy. Nice fitness facility. Few issues noted, other the fact that it can be a bit of a schlep from the parking lot to one's room, depending on where it's situated (the building has huge, long hallways, and could stand a few more well-placed stairwells, elevator banks and exits). Also, the $20 per day self-parking fee seems a bit steep for this location. Finally, a hotel this size and at this level should really have fully-functioning restaurant and room service (not just bar food or snack items from the lobby shop). All in all, not a bad place to stay if you've got business on the Peninsula and/or need to be near SFO.

Room Tip: If walking long distances is a problem, try to get a room closer to the front of the building and/or...

The average reviews surprised me because I had a great stay here.

Positive: Very professional and helpful staff. Check-in and check-out was smooth and convenient. They are familiar with the benefits of the Starwood Preferred Guest Program. Good location; less than 5 minutes drive from SFO. You can walk to In-N-Out Burger from here. I cannot emphasize how awesome that is. It's an ~5 minute walk across an overpass with sidewalks and crosswalks.
Neutral: The rooms are new and clean. The amenities are not amazing, but very good for the price. For example, the shampoo and body wash is in a dispenser in the shower. Not very classy, but more than serviceable.
Negative: None for me.

I think some people have been leaving average reviews because this is not a full service hotel with porters and room service etc. I'm a simple traveller and don't need those frills. For what you get, the value is very very good. I'd happily stay again.

Did I mention that you can walk to In-N-Out from here?

Very modern décor. The lounge area is like a night club. This can be OK if you aren't looking for the same business hotel experience. It's very close to the airport and has a shuttle that runs every 20 minutes. But you never hear the noise from the hotel - very quite rooms. If you like big breakfasts or lots of food options, this place isn't going to deliver. The staff is great and very friendly.

This was the one of the last hotels we stayed at on a recent trip to America, and it compared surprisingly well to the other hotels. The shuttle was easy to find and no hassle, and we had a pleasant meal at the restaurant/ sports bar at the Westin next door. The first room we were given on level 6 was a little noisy due to rooftop air conditioning hum but they moved us to the 4th floor with no problems. We had a coffee maker in our room (look and learn, St Regis!) and the beds were comfortable. We liked the extra effort the hotel went to, from decor (such as the UV lit floor gel the lefts) to staff friendliness. Very well run hotel.
