5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The most stunning hotel grounds I've seen in the Bay area. A sort of lake (I think some call it a lagoon) winds through the buildings, complete with fountains, koi, and ducks. More trees than I could count (I didn't even try), and very nice Asian-themed sculptures and decorations. The room was unusually spacious, with a small patio, and an excellent king bed. Hotel staff were very accomodating, polite, and helpful. They all wore masks in doors, most of them while outdoors too. Restaurant was not great, sorry. It was very pleasant to sit poolside, and service was fast and sanitary. It's just that the actual food was only at the "good" level, not befitting the wonderful property. Location was great, just a short walk from The Village at San Antonio. Parking was very easy at the hotel.
