“Thanksgiving Weekend Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

Central location away from down town which made it nice. Close to everything you want to see but away from the traffic, well until you get to the attractions! Nice hotel overall, friendly folks.
Our room was big and nice, but the only fault for me was lack of counter space in the bathroom. Other than that it was so fine. Good for business traveler I would say.

I stay here whenever I travel from SFO. The hotel is easy to get to, it has transport to and from the airport. It's also just a 15 minute drive to Fisherman's Wharf down town. The staff are friendly and very professional. The rooms are clean and dining there is good too, I recomend the fish & chips !

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend trip to San Francisco. The hotel was clean, comfortable and convenient to everything San Francisco has to offer. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It was about a 20-25 minute drive to downtown San Francisco. Similar hotels in the area charged for parking, but the Hilton Garden did not. Other reviewers said there was nothing nearby (ie Restaurants) I say it's because they weren't looking. We had breakfast at a great small time diner serving 3 egg chorizo and mushroom omelets called Ed's Diner and dinner at a delicious authentic Italian restaurant Buon Gusto which as a couple of blocks away. If we get a chance to visit San Francisco again, we'll be staying here!

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for three days while in the bay area on business. Its close to SFO but situated in an area surrounded by high tech sector buildings, there were no restaurants close. The hotel was well maintained and offered FREE parking! The room was nice and clean. I did have an internet issue with no connectivity that was not the fault if the hotel. The staff called to keep me informed so that was a nice extra touch. I had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, the prices were decent and the food was good. I was glad they didnt price gouge because of the captive audience due to lack of other restaurants close by. Breakfast buffet was good, typical for most hotels. I would stay here again.

Front Desk - Very efficient, offer the typical homemade cookies at checkin

Location - Close to airport which was handy, but located in an office park, so nothing else nearby

Business Center - 2 free computers and printers were very convenient to checkin early for my flight

Room - Loved the bed with the ability to select the softness I like. The room was nicely decorated. Flat screen tv, although some stations didn't come in well. The bathroom was very clean.

Restaurant - Convenient, with room service available. Breakfast buffet available - full for 12.95 or continental for 7.95. Continental was adequate with yogurt, fruit, bagels, waffles and sweet breads.

Shuttle - Free shuttle to the airport was wonderful, on time and convenient especially when I had a 6 am flight out of town.

I would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't think any rooms are more desirable than others....

You put a HHonors Diamond member in a room right next to the elevators and you expected a good review? Ok, ok. So I admit that there was no noise from the elevators but you had me worried for a minute there.

Rooms at this hotel are clean and well appointed although you can tell it is a little bit older than some other properties. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. My only real complaint about this hotel is that it is not located close to any restaurants. Pretty much anything requires a drive. But if you just have a quick overnight or two and can put up with driving to find food, entertainment, or shopping then it's a perfectly adequate Hilton Garden Inn ... and at the end of the day that's what HGI is known for -- consistency. I know what to expect from them nomatter where I go in the country.

I was looking for an affordable place to stay while in San Francisco. The hotel was very clean, tastefully decorated, free wifi, and had free self park. Although i didn't get a chance to use the pool or jacuzzi they both looked nice. The area was quiet at night. The lobby is very nicely decorated. They offer an affordable breakfast (we didn't get to try because of our pending activities). The hotel offered half price appetizers at happy hour. The hotel staff was very courteous. Price was reasonable night. Would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a bed with their sleep number. I didn't get one but next time will ask for one.
