My wife and I spent 7 days/nights at this hotel on a recent trip to visit our daughter and son-in-law who have just had their first child. Conveniently situated, it took us all of 4 mins to get Uber cabs to collect us and take us wherever we wanted to go. Check-In was smooth. Room was 23xx in separate Executive...

This Hotel is phenomenal! It is situated in an upscale area, Foster City with easy dining and shopping options within walking distance at the Bridgepointe Shopping Center. The Hotel has wonderful dining as well, with a great breakfast buffet at a super reasonable price $9.99. The Hotel staff couldn't be more welcoming. My 2 year old grandson had a cold...

Thank you so much for such stunning review! I am overjoyed you noticed our culture of going above and beyond in guest accommodations. With life being so busy, especially for travelers, our goal is to create an environment of peace, relaxation, and to help them forget the hustle and bustle--"beautiful waterfalls and running streams" take part in that. We also...

Full service. Has a gym and a few restaurants. Shower heads are shoulder high and the tubs are made of a flimsy plastic so they feel like they are going to collapse under you. Temperature control in my room never works and it took quite some time for the hot water to come up.

The room says it is non-smoking room, but as soon as I walk in, there is a nasty smokey smell to it. The window cannot be opened, so I had to live with the smell. Luckily, I was their just for one night, I left in the morning as soon as possible. The facility seems dated. The big lobby with...

Stayed here for a couple of nights on business. For a place that charges $320 a night for a midweek stay, I'd expect a much nicer hotel. I didn't eat here or use any of the provided services, so I cannot comment on them. The room felt outdated with the musty carpet. Everything just felt a bit dirty, but I...

Staff were great, accommodating and knowledgeable. Rooms and bathroom were large enough, plenty of hot water and nice thick fluffy towels. AC unit was very loud, which meant it couldn't be used at night if you actually wanted to sleep so I'm glad I wasn't here when the weather was warmer. Fridge was also very loud so unplugged mine.

Pretty good amenities with the compact gym and swimming pool and liked the local running map. Breakfast selection was good and the Japanese restaurant on site was enjoyable. Bedroom was ok - a/c either on or off, so doing nothing or blasting and quite noisy. The bathroom was disappointing, bubbling paint on the ceiling, chipped bath - which in reality...

I'm glad that our local running map, fitness center, Japanese restaurant caught your attention. You're totally right about the bathroom conditions in our hotel, and we have already begun updating and maintenance. Our bathtubs are standard size, but our Jacuzzi really is where the party is at. Hope to see you poolside or working out on your next trip. Cheers!
