    Just one thing missing for me - microwave. Not absolutely necessary though. Everything else perfect so 5 stars, Easy check in, check out. Comfortable bed and bathroom, classy furniture.

      Everything was wonderful. We have stayed there before and have always received excellent service. And, their little restaurant was very good about fixing something yummy that I was not allergic to. I have multiple food allergies and restrictions and they were very happy to accommodate me.

                                          Overall the flights weren't too bad, the small planes have little to be desired overhead space is too small for most normal sized carry ons , I'm short and still hit my head with small amount of space. But overall friendly staff and got me home safely

                                          United should offer free checked baggage for the first baggage. Other then that, it was a pleasant flight..

                                          Jul 26, 2019

                                          The crew was amazing in a 1.5 hour delay!

                                          Delayed deplaning due to no ramp driver. I realize this probably isn’t United’s fault but SFO should be better too

                                          I will not fly this airlines ever again

                                          Who flies 5.5 hrs & offers no in-flight movies?!

                                          Dec 1, 2019

                                          The worst airline. 8hrs delayed. Made me miss my meeting for a kids charity.

                                          No assigned seats. Couldn’t leave the gate to use restroom or get food while waiting for seat assignment

                                          Jul 29, 2019

                                          United is too obsessed with micro fees and makes the whole process extremely difficult because they’re ensuring no one is trying to bring a bag beyond their limits. The paid WiFi blacklists almost every site I need and to be able to use their provided entertainment option, you’re forced to download a plugin that opens up your device to severe security vulnerabilities.

                                          Flight was late

                                          Jan 7, 2019

                                          Flight got delay Twice. After that, Flight departed Late

                                          Jan 7, 2019

                                          The flight was cancelled and we were never told why. We didn't know it was cancelled until we got to the airport. And we got booked on a new flight lasting over 30 hours instead of 4 hours. My positive review is for the reservation agent who worked hard to get us another flight that was only 4 hours.
