The hotel is a great place to host special occasion and also a great weekend getaway. The view from our room is just lovely and the water gives absence of "you are on vacation mode" feeling even if you are just few minutes away from your home. Staff are so nice and welcomes us with smiles. The Wedding reception was...

This is a full service hotel with doormen, valets, etc and a nice restaurant, bar, and lounge area that looks out on the pool, landscaping and the Redwood Shores Lagoon. The modernistic coffee shop features a good variety of pastries and is spacious and sparkling clean, though the seating there is spartan. The lobby is elegant and modern. There are...

The Pullman has a lot to offer including gym and swimming pool specially in summer time. The food is good but similar option for breakfast which can be inadequate. The other important thing that Pullman hotel should look into is there is a receptionist at front disk who was rude and mean for my group I don't know if she...

Comfortable, well-appointed rooms on the lagoon in Redwood City, with a heated outdoor pool, roomy lounge area, and extensive (though expensive) breakfast buffet. Drinks were delicious and accompanied by unusual snacks (wasabi peas, as well as mixed nuts and cheese straws). One quibble: no towel rack in the bathroom made it hard to be ecological and "leave your towel on...

I stayed overnight for business. The room was spacious, and they did not add excessive furniture to fill in any empty space. The Pullman is one of the rare Eco-friendly hotels. Most hotels will put out place cards saying if you don't want your linens change, do this; or if you do want new towels to hang them. They actually...

The hotel is the Sofitel with other name. The service quality is great and they will do the best efforts to help you navigate trough Silicon Valley and SFO. Rooms are big and comfy and the breakfast buffet is worthy.

Staff helpful, great nights sleep with quiet and comfortable rooms. Good easy to access internet and space to work. Good gym to work out. Nice location on the lake with easy walks nearby. Rooms are a little dated. Restaurant is good.

I was in Redwood City to attend a wedding and managed to find a reasonable rate for this property; must be cos it's the weekend and this location is literally quiet like a ghost town. You are located in an industrial area, so don't expect to go anywhere on foot at all. Comfortable rooms but it's time to change the...

We had a pleasant stay at the Pullman San Francisco Bay in Redwood City. Hotel is close to Palo Alto and good for people visiting the Silicon Valley. Very good breakfast, good food. Rooms are a little old and very American, but spacious.

the entire place is horribly understaffed. front desk. valet. restaurant. cafe. and on and on. the number of times i was told "sorry, i'm the only one here" was ridiculous. weekend, week day, didn't matter. the service is flawed. just one example, when i ordered room breakfast, the door hang tag was never replaced. 2nd day, i requested one and...
