Most comfortable bed hands down

The hotel would not provide a microwave which was very disappointing. The electrical outlets in the room did not all work, and they were poorly placed and not enough of them. The TV was not capable of attaching a DVD player to. The bed was the best hotel bed ever.

Beautiful Hotel, Disappointing Room

Such a beautiful hotel! Best fitness center I've seen at a hotel. Unfortunately, the room was a disappointment; there was no frig/microwave. The lobby looked very hip and modern, but the room looked dated.

Ok for business- wifi should be free tho

i'd give this place a 5 star rating if the wi-fi and internet was more readily accessible. smack dab in the center of business complexes, they really should better cater to the business traveler, don't you think?

Was not bad.

Pros: The hotel was very clean and well put together; friendly and responsive staff; close to the freeway; free and easy parking; decent pricing. Cons: no wireless internet (other than the T-mobile service for $8 a day); no wired internet service (hotel charged $10 dollars a day). The hotel had an area with 3 computers, only one of which printed on 1/3 days. Could hear everytime one of the neighboring rooms flushed their toilets. The plumbing in our room made a whining sound every time the hot water was turned on.

Amazing!

This hotel is amazing! It is so beautiful and the staff is so nice. They have a bakery that has wonderful little pastries. The bed feels like you are sleeping in a cloud. I stay at this hotel twice a month and love it!

Quick trip to the Bay Area

The last portion of the "Overview" of the Sofitel on your page reads: The 421 guestrooms at this Sofitel hotel feature signature SoBeds, Roger & Gallet toiletries, and high-speed Internet access. The toiletries we all know are free, and the mention of "high-speed internet access" after, made me think that it was free as well. It's actually $10 a day. I think a hotel of this stature should offer this service free of charge and stop the nickel and dimeing.
