      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.

                                          The "Class" system is embarrassing with 5 clearly being the lowest, poorest, least desirable and unfortunate all about $$$

                                          Took a long time to get our luggage. Seemed like even less leg room than normal. My sit didn't recline. And no movie or tv except online

                                          The plane left on time and got in 20 minutes early which for United out of SB is a vast improvement over past performance.

                                          I had a tight connection in SF. Missed the early boarding. They said all my carry on had to be checked. I had valuable equipment that I could not check. They were rude and didn't even try to find a solution to help.

                                          Dec 29, 2018

                                          Someone vomited in the aisle halfway through the flight, then they landed us at the wrong airport

                                          Oct 31, 2018

                                          I arrived on time to SFO but waited 15 mins for my bag at gate check. United changed my gate so I arrived at 84 and had to go to the international terminal gate 100 at the very end and it took me 25 mins to get there. I barely made the flight and since they changed the gate, I boarded last and my bag was taken. I even paid to upgrade. I am terribly disappointed in United. There is no way this was a legal connection to Portland, OR

                                          No compensation for 20 her delay. Not even a food voucher? Had to buy a blanket to try to sleep in a chair because airport was cold! And no clear explanation on anything! Never, ever again. And will pass this experience on.

                                          The worst service! Only a 30 minutes lay over. Missed our flight spent 6 hours in airport with family of six with small children. Will never fly united or through San Francisco again
