WARNING: We are the very busy "silicon valley" tech corridor. Hotels are generally expensive. BOOK EARLY for the best rates. The local government rate (POST APPROVED) is $140. If you get anything close to that rate, grab it quick!
July, 2018 Update: Due to the amazing demand for hotels in our area, many new hotels are opening and there is new inventory. Many of them are Marriott properties. There is a new Residence Inn, A Springhill Suites and a Courtyard very close. The Springhill is walking distance. Just visit www.marriott.com and search for Redwood City.
We suggest the following facilities. They have all been checked by our staff for cleanliness, safety and creature comforts. Book your hotels in advance, they often sell out many weeks in advance!
Fairfield Inn 650-631-0777 or www.marriott.com. This is a standard hotel with some nice creature comforts. Each room has a mini refrigerator and microwave. Free high speed internet is included. Fairfield does provide a free shuttle to our campus and area shopping. If you don't have a car, this might be a good choice. The rate is also $109-$169 depending on the time of year. This facility is 1 mile from PSTC.
The Marriott Towne Place Suites 650-593-4100 or www.marriott.com The Towne Place feels like home. It has a full kitchen, sleeping area and sitting area. Local calls are free and there is a “grab and go” morning snack included. Parking is free but there is no local or airport shuttle. They will take your reservations directly at the number above. MAKE sure you mention PSTC. The property is 8 blocks from our campus and 2 blocks from a shopping center with 6 restaurants and a market. There is also a hot tub and free high speed internet.
Pullman Hotel 650-598-9000. This is a luxury 4 star facility that is directly opposite our campus. They offer a free airport shuttle to SFO. Their rates vary greatly but they sometimes offer a $119-139 government or weekend rate but that is rare! The hotel is beautiful and has a bar, restaurant and pool. It will be more expensive than any on the list. The hotel is 100 yards from our front door.
We have also used the Courtyard in San Mateo and the Country Inns and Suites in San Carlos. Both are great.
Hotels we have not yet checked but are very close to PSTC:
Motel 6 650-591-1471 This is an older facility that just added a second wing that you might want to request. There is a great restaurant (Hobbee's) attached to the hotel.
Extended Stay America 650-654-0344 Rooms include a small kitchen. Nightly rates start at $89 a night. The facility is ½ mile from PSTC. Daily maid service is not included.
All of the hotels above are rated well by AAA and Mobil Travel. They all provide free parking (except Pullman) and as of September 14, 2017 we've had no complaints about any property. Please keep us informed about positive or negative experiences. We will remove any property that doesn't treat our staff or students with quality, safe and clean accommodations.
