Assuming you'll have a car, you can't beat this hotel for convenient access to San Francisco, Marin County, and the Napa/Sonoma wine country. Although it's right off the freeway, it's perfectly quiet. It's also spotlessly clean and attractively designed. There's a small food service area in the lobby but you can also walk right out the door to a large Safeway supermarket that has a Starbuck's and a snack bar. Also in that same strip mall are at least 4 nice casual restaurants (Italian, Latino, a French-influenced bakery, and "Toast" which serves excellent generic American food from breakfast through late evening). There's also a gas station with a convenience store and a McDonald's.
The Larkspur ferry to San Francisco is less than 1/2 hr drive away (depending on traffic), and 1/2 hr will also get you to the Richmond Bridge with access to the East Bay. In about 45 minutes (again, depending on traffic) you can be at the Sausalito ferry or the Golden Gate Bridge.
We totally loved the pool (outdoor) as well as the large jacuzzi (indoor) and the fact that the fitness center is open 24 hours.
We've tried several different hotels around the Bay area and this one is by far our favorite!
