"Sofitel Meeting/Room", An Eventective User from Irvine, CA
In March of 2012, my company held an important yearly meeting in the San Francisco Bay area. The previous venue we had used in San Francisco had not met our expectation, so we had to work very hard to find a suitable venue. I heard about the Sofitel Hotel through a work acquaintance and thought it would be good to learn more about this venue. The hotel seemed exceptional on its website, although there was not much information regarding the meeting rooms and amenities. I called for further information and was very pleased with what the hotel was offering. Due to the fact that I wanted to be close to the meeting facility, I booked a room at the Sofitel Hotel.
Overall I was very pleased with the hotel as both a meeting facility and the hotel room itself. The benefit which I most enjoyed is that the Hotel was a very short distance from the San Francisco airport. This made it easier for our out of state business partners. Another aspect of the hotel that I was pleased with was the staff. The front desk clerk and the hotel manager were both very friendly as extremely helpful. The meeting room itself was not exceptional; however, it did serve our purpose. The room contained a printer/fax along with projector screens and a large center table. The views of the meeting room were brilliant, overlooking the bay. Although this provided a lovely view, I also found it somewhat distracting as the boats went by.

"Meeting in Comfort", An Eventective User from San Francisco, CA
I had an excellent experience meeting at the Sofitel Redwood City location. I was attending a conference for my church, and thus we not only required the typical meeting space set up with rooms of chairs and tables for logistics planning, but also space for our larger worship gatherings. Sofitel was extremely accommodating and helpful in providing us with a variety of spaces, both for small group meetings, medium sized workshops and larger gatherings of all attendants. We also enjoyed using Sofitel's catering services for meals, and they were delicious and served nicely. The sleeping accommodations were stellar- it is a very nice hotel and the rooms are wonderful and comfortable. I was well taken care of while there and enjoyed returning to my room each night to a space of comfort. I also noticed that the general hotel layout is very nice- all our meeting rooms were close to each other, making it easy to get from one event to the next without wasting much time on traveling. In addition, the lobby and bar space is very nice, it has a great modern feel to it, very sophisticated, and many of us enjoyed spending evenings there after the events of the day were over. The hotel also overlooks water and it's nice to spend time outdoors in the evening, where they have firepits that they can light and you can sit by the pool and relax. It was a fabulous conference and it was made even better by the great accommodations.
