Good restaurant and room service. The menu isn't large but all the food is excellent. After a busy day, nice to relax with an in-room movie and room service dinner. Good parking, though pricey. Sprawling hotel layout takes some acclimation.

Nice hotel. Staff very professional and knowledgeable of area attractions. With the exception of the $25 breakfast I would recommend. Big room, big bathroom. Pool is nice, Sana was awesome!

Pros: The picture on the Expedia site. It looks so much better in picture than it does in person. The sheets were very white. Room was clean.
Cons: See the above : Staff could be happier, friendly, attentive to details. Dining room / Cafe needs a face lift and price drop.
Location: Great location. Eat at Mimi's! YUM!
The halls were a mess with litter and debris, dirty carpeting. The dining room was mediocre at best. It was cafeteria style, not at all comfortable dining, and the food was nothing at all special but priced like a five star. I booked it on line hoping to treat my family to something special. The only thing extraordinary were the prices. There was a used tampon on the sidewalk by pool. I reported it to house keeping, it was still there the next day. Gross. Staff seemed tired and not very happy- work as usual. Overall disappointing experience!!!

questionable cleanliness

Posted Apr 10, 2016 on Orbitz
Hair was in the shower and when we turned the shower on, a stick came out of the drain. It had obviously not been cleaned...or even given a basic rinse. Our sheets made us itch and after the shower issue, we wondered if they had been cleaned. As most "upscale" hotels you have to pay for parking, wifi (seriously Marriott? should be complimentary at this point), breakfast etc. Food was just okay. For all we needed to pay, it was not worth it. They did have a free shuttle to and from San Fran airport which was nice BUT our plane came in at 10 and it stopped running at 9 so we had to pay $30 for a cab to the hotel. We did get the shuttle back to the airport which was nice. I'd rather stay at Holiday Inn/Days Inn, pay less AND get the complimentary wifi, breakfast, and a clean room. I've been less impressed with Marriott over the years.

Nice hotel!

I had a great experience at the hotel. Traveled for business and it had a great location close to the bay, airport and only a 40 minute drive to San Francisco. I would recommend this to hotel to anyone. The California Grill located inside the hotel is also a great place to eat.
