Four Seasons Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto

Four Seasons Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Four Seasons in Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto reflects the legendary service and commitment to quality of this luxury brand. Upscale touches are everywhere, from the beautifully manicured grounds to the sleek wood-paneled lobby to the spacious rooftop pool with free sunscreen. Rooms are bright and modern with floor-to-ceiling windows, and offer marble bathrooms, deep soaking tubs, and flat-screen TVs. Everything from the spa to the pool is top-notch, but spa treatments are expensive and there is a daily fee for Wi-Fi, making some feel nickel-and-dimed. The hotel is located right off the freeway, and while rooms are well-insulated to shield the noise, some still have unappealing freeway views.
The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco

The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Everything you'd expect from a Ritz -- formal, doting service; cultivated decor; tasteful, tasty dining; a luxury spa -- all in the ritziest of San Francisco neighborhoods. But while luxury competitors offer free limo rides, 24-hour butlers, or panoramic views, the Ritz lacks a wow factor. It's largely a matter of taste, of course, but we prefer the St. Regis and Mandarin Oriental.
Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco

Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Four Seasons' huge, well-outfitted rooms and attentive service are among the city's best, but the 277-room property falls a bit short of expectations. Its pool and fitness center are outsourced, and its business-centric SoMa location lacks the prestige of Nob Hill, where some if its strongest competitors reside.
Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square

Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Luxury vacation rental meets upscale hotel at the city's best, if most expensive, residence-style lodging. The Ghirardelli Square factory setting has plenty of character, while modern one-, two-, and three-bedroom units feel like designer model homes with top-of-the-line amenities. Maserati car service, personal grocery shopping, 24-hour butlers, and free breakfasts are among service highlights.
Hilton San Francisco Union Square

Hilton San Francisco Union Square Rating: 4.0 Pearls

With 1,908 rooms and meeting space galore, this is the largest hotel in town. Business features are impressive, the restaurant is surprisingly nice, and the gym is well equipped. But rooms vary from impressive to so-so. Crowds of convention goers and business travelers make it difficult to find peace and quiet, or to get help without waiting in a long line.
San Francisco Marriott Union Square

San Francisco Marriott Union Square Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Near the designer shops and theaters in Union Square, the 400-room San Francisco Marriott reopened after renovations in 2009 to show off new guest rooms and a new fitness center. It can be a great deal, especially when it's compared to the two other Marriotts in Union Square, but unlike many mid-range hotels, there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.
Garden Court Hotel

Garden Court Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Garden Court Hotel is a standout boutique property in Downtown Palo Alto. The hotel's beautiful rooms are the highlight; they have elegant white-and-blue decor, upscale amenities, marble bathrooms, and in many, balconies overlooking the quaint courtyard. Property features include an upscale Italian restaurant, 7,000 square feet of meeting space, and a small fitness center. Though there is no spa, the hotel can arrange in-room massages, and owners can bring pets for a one-time fee (which covers pet-friendly amenities such as beds and treats). Those looking for more features -- such as a spa and a pool -- may consider the nearby, 200-room Four Seasons or the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, but guests return to the Garden Court for its elegant rooms and intimate vibe.
Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf Hotel

Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Renovated in 2008, this 531-room Sheraton has large, comfortable, and colorful rooms. Outdoor firepits, an outdoor heated pool, and a spacious, modern gym are nice touches. Overall, the hotel is nothing special, but it's a solid choice for tourists exploring Fisherman's Wharf.
Creekside Inn

Creekside Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 136-room Creekside Inn along Matadero Creek in Palo Alto is a functional mid-range option. It looks a bit like a motel from the outside, but the property is pleasant, with tall, shady trees, ivy-covered pathways, and flowered grounds leading to a lovely courtyard with a round, stone fountain. Rooms are comfortable, with chain-like decor but nice amenities, including balconies, iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and microwaves. The bathrooms are basic and clean, but could use an overhaul. The fitness center and pool are both small but useful, and the neighboring Driftwood Deli is convenient. One rare feature unique to the inn is a charging station for electric cars, an increasingly common site in eco-conscious California. The area around the hotel, which includes an auto repair shop, is more residential than it is quaint.
Hotel Carlton, a Joie de Vivre hotel

Hotel Carlton, a Joie de Vivre hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 161-room upper-middle-range Hotel Carlton is a comfortable property located located near Polk Street and Union Square in Lower Nob Hill. Built in 1927, the Carlton has an eclectic decor, with Middle Eastern and Asian influences. The fusion theme continues into its restaurant, Saha, which blends Yemenese and Arabic cuisine with California and French touches. The hotel also has a meeting room and a 24-hour business center. Rooms come with flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffeemakers, and offer city views. Be aware that rooms are not air-conditioned, and some receive noise from the street and adjacent rooms. The Galleria Park, also a Joie de Vivre hotel, offers quieter internal rooms with minibars.
