Photo Comment: Aerial view shows the Homewood Suites located on the east side of the double track main.  (Photo faces south).  Most train's that use this track are Cal-Train commuter train's.  There is a Raddison Hotel just out of view to the lower left side of this photo.  We do not list that hotel on this web site because the railroad view from the Raddison is minimal.  This motel is the best in Brisbane for a railroad view.  The bridge spanning over the tracks is the Exit # 426 ramp of the US-101.

Photo Comment: The Courtyard is sandwiched between the San Francisco Bay and the railroad tracks.  A room on the west side (picture faces south) will give you a railroad view.  Ask for an upper floor as a tall fence fouls the view from 1st story floor rooms.  Of the 3 tracks seen in the picture, one is a siding.
