hotel suggestion near San Francisco airport?

We will be spending one day/night in San francisco on our way back from Hawaii in April. I would like to stay close to the airport. Any suggestions?

PRICELINE!!!! Priceline is wonderful for SFO hotels. Check out biddingfortravel.com.

All the usual suspects (hotel chains) are at SFO and you can pay about 30 cents on the dollar if you use PL.

A few years ago, my husband and I stayed at the Embassy Suites in Burlingame. We really enjoyed our stay there. Free cocktails at night and breakfast in the morning (typical of other Embassy Suites). It has a free shuttle to the airport. And the price is right.

janisj is absolutely correct. And I'd stick with 4* bidding. Most people are getting for the SFO Hyatt for $50 or less these days. As low as $41 late last year.

There are some decent hotels in the 3* category, but also the Holiday Inn which is very so-so. I'd only do 3* if you just can't get a 4* at a decent price.

We like the SFO Hyatt. They have a free shuttle to/from the airport and I think, that there is access to public transportation into the city from the SFO Hyatt.

We've gotten the Doubletree twice when bidding for 3*** at the SFO Airport for $35/37. Our friend got the Sheraton for the same price which was also very nice.

Exactly, but last time I got the Holiday Inn bidding 3*, and it's still showing up recently on BFT.

In the PL survey, I told them the HI should not be 3*. 2.5* perhaps, but apparently, they did not listen to me.

I'll look into the properties you've suggested. Thank you all!

The Marriott is also good, but the Doubletree Inn gives you those great, warm chocolate chip cookies on check-in.

I recently stayed at the Bay Landing Hotel and loved it. It's owned by the same people who have Columbus Motor Inn, Cow Holllow Suites, etc in San Francisco. I am telling you this because people on Fodor's are a fan of this group of hotels.

They have a great breakfast and a shuttle to SFO. They are right next to Elephant Bar and I think a El Torito. I just walked over to Elephant Bar and got dinner. The hotel looks out over the bay and you can see the planes taking off but no noise. I believe the room rates are around $99. Reviews on tripadvisor are good, the hotel is #1 in Burlingame right now.

I would highly recommend this hotel but of course if you can get a 4* on Priceline for $50, then that's a bargain that's hard to turn down.

Free shuttle from the airport hotels into the village of Burlingame, a 10-minute ride. Take advantage of it. Lovely restaurants and shopping in a charming town.

Just fyi: the airport hotels located in "Burlingame" aren't in Burlingame-the-town. The town itself, which is on the other side of the freeway, is completely different from the area where the hotels are.
