    Interesting place for a 2-night stay. Hotel staff was lovely and property was very clean. Redwood Shores Lagoon is close enough to the venue. Don't forget to visit nearby Patio Cafe, they have best coffee ever. The room was big, and the beds were comfortable...

    Somewhat taken aback that free coffee is not offered to guests.

    Very clean, new, comfortable facility.

    I would like to suggest that airport transportation is highlighted on the website. I changed hotels on the last day of my stay because I was unaware that airport transportation was available, although at one hour intervals.

    Nice

    Convenient location for our purposes.

    We have stayed at this Sofitel four times. I was impressed with our first stay and afterwards the place seemed more tired, the rooms in particular. This last stay was miserable as our neighbor was partying and singing in the room until the wee hours. I complained the following morning and was just given an apology.
