Poised on the banks of a serene lagoon, Sofitel San Francisco Bay conveys a contemporary elegance. Sofitel’s European heritage and French-inspired cuisine are complemented by a California-style friendliness and an experienced staff that make guests feel right at home.

The marble-clad lobby boasts a striking abstract blown-glass chandelier in shades of sapphire blue, reminiscent of the sun-splashed waters of the bay. Throughout the public spaces, the same vibrant blues play against the interior’s muted hues as eye-catching accents—throw pillows on a dove-gray sofa in bay bar; painted library alcoves; and restaurant bay 223’s modern dining banquettes. In fact, the hotel décor is stunning, applied with sleek, fresh brushstrokes befitting its uniquely presented luxury.

Wedding ceremonies sparkle out on the dock, which overlooks a tranquil waterway where egrets and blue herons feed alongside flocks of ducks and geese. Follow up with a cocktail hour on the landscaped patio surrounding the swimming pool, with the glistening lagoon as a picturesque backdrop.

There are plenty of event options indoors as well—fifteen rooms in all, including Sofitel’s 6,200-square-foot Grand Ballroom. Serve cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Foyer, adorned with illuminated swags of blue crystals. Inside, the recently renovated Grand Ballroom is done in a refined color scheme of gold, sand and cream with accents of blue. Avant-garde lighting fixtures incorporate wavy sheets of striped glass that are in harmony with shimmery drapes in the same honey and copper earthy hues. One wall of floor-to-ceiling windows looks out to a porte-cochère, where water flows from a Mediterranean fountain. The Grand Ballroom can be used in its entirety or divided in half, depending on the size of your party.

Wedding showers and rehearsal dinners take on an air of exclusive intimacy in the Grand Salon or Blue Room. Small receptions are held in the Veranda, a room enclosed entirely by glass walls. Marble detailing and floors inlaid with dark wood add extra flair.

Cuisine is not an afterthought at Sofitel—the kitchen has a reputation for superbly prepared gourmet fare, best described as Bay Area French. Creative menus employ fresh local ingredients and the expertise of a French culinary staff for a marvelous dining experience.

To help you relax after the big event, Sofitel offers a complimentary suite for the bride and groom, with champagne and strawberries upon arrival, and special group rates for out-of-town guests. All the rooms feature Sofitel’s signature SoBed, a plush featherbed oasis of comfort. There will be plenty of takers for any overnight accommodations you arrange, as guests will want to extend their visit to this fashionable establishment as long as possible! Read less

We have the room booked for the wedding date. The morning we had a traditional tea ceremony here. The hotel provided all the service need for us. They even free upgrade us to the bigger room so we have more space for the guess. When we get back to the hotel at night. They have prepared champagne and strawberry chocolate for us. Very sweet! I am very enjoying the time we stay. All my relatives and friends said the hotel is very pretty.

This hotel is BEAUTIFUL and trendy! We loved it when we first set foot inside this French Hotel. Our catering manager was also very outgoing and attentive to all our needs. The food for our reception was also very delicious- small portions but nonetheless mouthwatering selections. We couldn't have chosen a better venue than Hotel Sofitel.

Ava was very patient with us and did her best to accommodate our requests. However, on our wedding day, we felt rushed during dinner, and the presentation of the appetizers had been minimized and the sorbet flavor was not the one we had picked, which was very upsetting. We advised Sofitel afterwards and they kindly refunded us some of the money.

My husband and I loved the hotel because of its modern look. We like to go there for dinner - the food is excellent!

This place seems to book up fast during wedding season. I booked a reception here and the coordinator was very helpful, she's the sweetest! The decor and overall ambiance of this place is very nice and classy and doesn't require a lot in terms of additional decoration. This place does not provide any AV or lighting so you need to bring all that in yourself. The filet mignon here is delish!

My reception was gorgeous. Sofitel and Ava were very accommodating and saw to it that the event operated smoothly. Although a pricey venue, the decor, location and accommodations were ideal.
