Pullman San Francisco Bay
Come back Sofitel!
A lot of renovation going on, which didn't help, but having stayed several times in the past when it was the Sofitel, we found the changes not for the better; the hotel has lost it's charm! No longer a 2 seat couch in the room - just an empty space! One bottle of water in a double room - always was 2! Bathroom overdue for a coat of paint and a new shower hose - all silly little things. And use of the car park has gone to $25 per night - outrageous! Stayed here for the last 5 years, doubtful we shall stay again.

1 night stay after flight cancelled
This was a quick booking having had a return flight to the UK delayed by 24 hours. I'd already stayed at this hotel for the 5 nights previous, so no concerns in coming back for 1 more night. Would highly recommend.

3rd visit in 2 years
This was my 3rd week long stay at the Sofitel over the past 2 years. The fact I keep coming back rather than try alternate hotels nearby says all I need to say really. Yes it is a little more expensive than some alternates - particularly food & drink, but its a very comfortable and relaxing hotel to stay at. Would highly recommend if you are in the San Carlos / Redwood City area.
