It's always interesting to see where airlines have their crew hotels. For some of the Asian airlines I've seen crews at the former Holiday Inn Civic Center (now BEI Hotel) when flying to/from SFO, though I suppose since they may there for a bit longer for an international turn it makes sense to be a bit closer to the city. Also because multiple asian airlines used that hotel the breakfast options used to contain a significant number of Asian items.

Or the hotel agrees to provide these as part of their contract
