Stayed for a single night in late Jan 2017, I have stayed here several times over the last several years. In that time the price has doubled. Total cost with parking is now over $250 a night. While the hotel is generally the same as most Holiday Inn Express have stayed in, which I do often, and the room was...

Great place to stay that is very close to the airport. The hotel provides a twenty four hour airport shuttle and check in. The noise is also very little even being located so close to the airport. The rooms are very clean as well as the grounds. There is a small pool and I am unsure if there is a...

I booked a room using the IHG website. I did not realize it was a no cancellation room at the time I booked the room. I then discovered that I had a "free night" from Chase that I could use at this location for the same date. I cancelled the first reservation TWO DAYS after I made it, which for...

If you're looking for a place to stay that's close to the airport, I'd recommend staying here. It's well kept up, and the rooms are very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, as well as the pillows.

We needed a place close to the SF airport for a night, and, forgetting whether it was the HI Express North or South that we preferred, we booked North (the wrong one). The woman at the counter was a joy: energetic, funny, enthusiastic and helpful. But the first room we were given had a problem with the deadbolt: the door...

The property is conveniently located and the price isn't that bad. The lobby looks great and it was nice to see the Christmas Decorations too. The restaurant is fair but there are not many choices near the hotel. The rooms while nicely decorated and with fresh furniture the fixtures are coming away from the wall. The commode isn't firmly secured...

The room was absolutely great. The décor, furniture and linen were clean and looked very new. Was a welcome change after 14 days in a hotel in Milpitas which was much inferior and had double the price. Breakfast choices were good. Free shuttle to airport was very useful.

Stayed here for 1 night on business. Front desk did not appear too interested in dealing with customers. Was not greeted as IHG Spire, did not get bonus points, seemed to be bothering her by checking in. Not a big deal, just an FYI. Room was OK, clean and comfortable, breakfast was decent as well.
