Not the best Sofitel but it did the trick

The hotel is in a business area which is kind of boring. the lobby is beautiful and the rooms were good. But compared to the Sofitel in Chicago it's not as fabulous. Could use some updates but it was clean and he staff was great.

Thanksgiving stay

This my 4th stay at the Sofitel SF Bay. A beautiful hotel with very comfortable beds and a spacious room. Nice snack shop downstairs with fresh baked croissants and other bakery items. Very friendly and helpful staff also.

Hotel is good.Food in Restaurant is bad, but staff is friendly. Complimentary shuttle is simply for name. You can stay if there is no better option.

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.

Sofitel is only So-So...

[...] The water pressure in the shower was NON-EXISTENT. Really quite awful. Standard extras (fridge, coffee-maker) are nowhere to be found here.

Mixed Bag of Good/Bad

Although the hotel was visually very nice, the service was a mixed bag. The front desk room staff were fantastic. Great workout room. However, the dining and bar service was very slow and understaffed. Likewise the coffee/pastry bar had customers backed up sometimes 6 or 7 deep waiting for a single person to operate both the expresso machine and handle purchases. Food value was very poor. I will not hesitate to stay there again if the price is right but will choose to eat elsewhere.

Peaceful Location

I like this place because you can generally get great quality for a reasonable price. This is partly because the hotel isn't exactly "centrally located" to night life and great restaurants but that's a good thing if you're looking for some rest and relaxation. You're into downtown San Francisco in about 20 minutes.

Other than San Francisco, great dining can be found in Palo Alto and Redwood City - only about 10 minutes drive.
