Holiday Inn Express Redwood City-Central
Great room! My daughter was thrilled with the room delivery by Relay! Good location. Lots of outlets throughout the room, very conveniently placed. We did not have the continental breakfast, so I cannot comment on that. Overall, I was extremely pleased!

Perfect Stay !
We stayed this hotel because my spouse had a surgery at Stanford Orthopedic hospital. It took only 6 minuets by Uber from this hotel. Our room was super clean, bed was excellent, and very quiet. The water pressure of the shower is very nice. Toilet works very good. We had 0% stress to prepare to the surgery. There is a good restaurant across the street from this hotel. About 10 minuets to Target and Marshals by walking. But... it is not good idea to walk around after dark around this neighborhood. The breakfast was very good. A robot works with house keeping readies for delivering amenities to rooms. Overall, We will use this hotel when we need to go the hospital again in the future.
