Historical Traveller Reviews of The Westin San Francisco Airport Hotel
Was I wrong!from 19514G
Could have stayed in a newer hotel down the street for lessfrom A TripAdvisor Member
s Hotelfrom Pb650
Room was clean and functional, with triple paned windows so that airport/highway noise was not an issue. Room felt a little worn, but the sheets/towels/carpet/furniture/bath were very clean and comfortable. Room also had one bottle water and two packets starbucks coffee, free.
However the room was not that big, and if we stayed here more than one night with our 2-year old, it would have been difficult to manage. The king bed was nice, but not as "heavenly" as we expect from Westin. The AC system was quiet and easy to control, with digital readout.
Housekeeping was terrific - they provided a crib and when we asked for an extra comforter to line the crib, it was brought immediately. Very friendly and thoughtful staff all around.
The area is GREAT for travellers who like to jog, as a trail along SF Bay is steps outside the front door. I saw a lot of people using the trail in the AM.
The best view is of the airport - from the front of the hotel (northerly view) one can watch the planes taking off, which kids just love. We had a southerly view, which was a view of an industrial area, although we could see planes making their approach to the airport.
Overall, a nice and quiet business hotel with friendly & efficient staff, convenient access to the airport, and a pleasant pool/jacuzzi area.
Good Hotel, definitely a Westinfrom EuroTravellerPG
Having stayed in a few other Westins, this is definitely one of theirs where we found the sevice to be good, rooms well appointed and lots of good additional facilities (e.g. pool and good airport shuttle connection)
We purposely did not book a room for the last night of our 10 day California getaway so that we could choose another hotel close to the airport when we were due to fly out fom SFO if we did not like what we got at the start of the holiday.
We rebooked the Westin again. This reinforces how we felt about this hotel.
Great pool, but not a Westinfrom Aquasolaris
All in all this hotel is not a Westin property at all, though the staff are nice enough, they just don't do enough to give you the Westin feel. Good location, great shuttle every 15 minutes, though they ran late very often, fortunately they all ran late so the max 15 minute wait was the same. Don't even try and pay more than 99 dollars for this property and if they try and ask you for 30 dollars more for a view room (bayview is a bit far of, as the bay is not in view if its shallow water) dont do it, its not worth it. Go to their own website, the starwood website (189 dollars) doesnt do as good as deal as they do (the 99 bucks). Stay here one night and you'll be fine, 2 tops.
Standard Westin - quite goodfrom A TripAdvisor Member
My one complaint is that when we asked about how to get to Hertz we were told the shuttle would take us. They took us - to the United terminal. We had to walk thorugh the terminal, and take another shuttle. Had we known, we would have gotten a cab.
typical westin - quite nicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is perfect for a stay close to the airport. The rooms were mostly quiet, and there was shuttle service roughly every 20 minutes.
The staff were friendly. The room was very nice. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very good. The food at the bar was reasonably priced. The workout facilities were OK, I seen better ones at other Westins.
The only negative I encountered is that they wanted to charge $16.95 for high speed internet access, insane!
I would stay here again
Loved itfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Heavenly Bed--Not and No food for Vegetariansfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Secondly, I found the heavenly bed to be impossible for sleeping. The bottom sheet was not fitted and so through-out the night it was impossible to rest because I was constantly trying to keep the sheets on the bed.
The only good thing about the hotel was the staff; especially the doormen Troy and Rolando. They really helped me to survive the dietary ordeal by locating vegetarian restaurants or establishments that served veggie food.
Come on Westin...It's 2005. What upscale hotel isn't able to accomodate diverse dietary choices?

Top Local Tips for Millbrae
Getting around We were on our last day of vacation and had been in the California Wine Country for most of the trip. We decided to go into the city that day to meet friends for lunch at one of the piers. I definitely recommend taking the BART to and from the airport and then using the hotel shuttle.
Getting downtown to San Francisco The Bart is the best way to get there - don't take a car unless you want to spend a lot on parking. Also, if you are going downtown, get a MUNI pass. This allows you unlimited trips on cable cars, caltrain, buses, trolley cars in the SF area, available for 1, 3 and 7 days. Get the BART in and then hop on and off the public transport system to get around.
