      All in all i think everything is great! Very convenient for the traveler with a long layover. Only complaint is that the restaurant and bar were closed but can't blame the hotel for covid restrictions.

                    We liked the renovation of the hotel. It was clean and the staff was friendly. There was no shuttle from the airport so that was an extra $15 plus tip. We found a cute restaurant for breakfast nearby for pick-up. We had a small dog and the fee was the least expensive we could find. Great deal.

                                          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..

                                          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

                                          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

                                          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.
