Marriott San Mateo/San Francisco Airport
1770 S Amphlett Blvd, San Mateo, CA 94402
I recently stayed at the San Mateo Marriott for 4 days on a business trip and was very satisfied with the great accomodations and with the level of service provided by the staff. They were all enthusiastic and very friendly which, lately on my trips, I've found to be quite rare. The wait to check-in was short despite what seemed (at first) to be a long line. The rooms were immaculate. The food was surprisingly good; I went with a server's recommendation each time I dined and did not go wrong once. I didn't like the wine list though; I was surprised by the awful selection they had. The only bottle I wanted they were out of, so I settled on (moderately priced) cocktails and beers. The friendly bartender may as well work on Wall Street for all the stock tips he gave me. I tried all night to make the cocktail waitress smile. She was really attentive and fast but seems to have lost her smile. I don't know why but it felt like quite an accomplishment when I finally made her laugh. Overall The SMM was a great place to stay and I'll definitely be back.
