Our four-night stay at the Sonesta Select San Francisco Airport Hotel was an overall pleasant experience, thanks to its convenient location, helpful reception staff, and early check-in option. While the hotel had many strengths, there was a minor issue with the staff at breakfast. One of the standout features of our stay was the hotel's location, which was extremely convenient, especially given its proximity to the airport. This made it an ideal choice for travelers looking for easy access to flights. Additionally, the reception staff were kind and accommodating. They went above and beyond to assist us, including allowing us to check in early after a long flight. This thoughtful gesture greatly contributed to our comfort and rest. However, the only minor concern we had during our stay was related to the staff at breakfast. The individual responsible for the breakfast area could have been more welcoming and friendly. Throughout our four breakfasts, they never seemed to smile or provide a warm greeting. While it didn't significantly impact our stay, a more inviting attitude would have made the dining experience more pleasant. In conclusion, the Sonesta Select San Francisco Airport Hotel offered a convenient location and helpful reception staff, making it a suitable choice for travelers. The early check-in option was greatly appreciated. While the breakfast experience could have been improved with a friendlier staff member, it did not overshadow the positive aspects of our stay.

The bed was comfy and the location by the water was nice. Renovations going on during the hotel DIDNT even have any weight in this review. This issue was the dog( possible cat) hair all across the floor tracking on our socks. I have nothing against pets but IT IS THE PRINCIPLE. I am senstive to cats & dogs dander & even if I wasn't this would still be a problem. The 2 stars comes from the fact that I simply asked for them to come vaccuum & nothing else. We had a short stay and I wasn't trying to make it a big deal. We gave them a time fram we would be out ao they can come and vaccuum & I was told the would service the entire room, not just vaccuum. They did neither. During check out, I asked them at the front desk about the vaccuuming & they acknowledged they let housekeeping know. Either way I have photos of the floor when we came back to our hotel after being out and it was exactly the same as when we left it. We spend good money on hotels in this economy, I think it's safe to say most of us appreciate a clean room at the least. At least I do. That's all.
