There are numerous San Francisco Airport hotels, the closest being the 5-star luxury Grand Hyatt at SFO, which is right by the airport entrance. However, there are budget options, like Super 8, which is less than a 10-minute drive, and most of the well-known chains have hotels nearby.

If you have a loyalty card for a particular hotel chain, you'll probably find they have a hotel close enough to accommodate you if you have a late arrival or an early morning flight.

5-Star San Francisco Airport Hotel

Grand Hyatt at San Francisco Airport HotelGrand Hyatt at San Francisco Airport Hotel

The Grand Hyatt at SFO is a 5-star hotel that is right by the entrance, where Highway 101 passes the turn-off for the airport. Don't worry about noise as all rooms have floor-to-ceiling soundproofed windows, which give views of the airport and the bay.

It's also convenient if you're using the AirTrain as the hotel has its own dedicated station, served by both the Red Line and the Blue Line. This links the hotel with the airport terminals, the rental car center, the long term parking garage, and the Bay Area Rapid Transit system. Using this you can be in downtown San Francisco in about 30 minutes.

The 351 rooms include 22 suites and there's a choice of dining options, a gym, and free Wi-Fi.

Bayfront Hotels at SFO

As the airport stands right on San Francisco Bay there are a number of hotels offering bay views, and they aren't necessarily expensive. These include the 4-star Westin San Francisco Airport, the 3-star Hampton Inn and Suites, the 2-star Vagabond Inn (one of the cheapest options), a 3-star Holiday Inn Express, and a 3-star DoubleTree by Hilton.

If you arrive late at night then waking up in the morning to a view over San Francisco Bay is a good start to the day.

Budget San Francisco Airport Hotels

If you're on a budget then you still have a choice of airport hotels. In addition to the Vagabond Inn, mentioned above, with its bay views, there's also a Super 8, El Rancho Inn, the 1-star Ritz Inn, a 2-star Ramada by Wyndham, and a 2-star Gateway Inn and Suites. None of these is much more than about a 10-minute shuttle ride from the airport.
