Stayed for two nights, while attending the Keith Urban concert at Shoreline. A smaller hotel, but still nice rooms. The breakfast room was small, and the breakfast itself was basic, but included in the price. Parking was free too, as was the internet. The area didnt have too many good (american) restaurants though, mostly asian etc. The hotel was clean... More

I had a great stay at the Avante from Sunday 7th to Thursday 11th September, Great service and the rooms were a good size with all the amenities you would expect, Front desk staff were amazing (especially Nathan) and the free shuttle to Intuit made my trip even easier, I would stay again for sure!

The hotel looks okay from the outside and has a nice but small lobby. I should have known, however, that they had issues with loud guests when I had to sign an agreement acknowledging that I understood that the pool was closed at 10pm and noisy guests would be asked to leave. At this hotel your room either faces the... More

Great service for a smaller hotel. All staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Each night we received a little chocolate and hand written note asking about our day! Free shuttle to local area was a welcome addition, as I had to pick up our rental car. Free breakfast had good variety. Free Wall Street Journal each morning along... More

The entire staff from the desk to room cleaning were friendly and efficient. The complimentary breakfast was bountiful, varied, and delicious...something for everybody. The location is perfect for getting around the South Bay with easy access to the major freeways, but no freeway noise. The guests were mostly thirty-something techies and very pleasant. The room was large and welcoming with... More

This was a great hotel. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were playful, with glass topped desks and small toys and games in the drawers. The free breakfast was very good for a hotel breakfast. Pool was nice, but chilly. Hot tub was perfect temp for a cool evening.

This wasn't my first stay at a Joie de Vivre hotel and it was pretty much what I expected. A little differently but fun. I like the complimentary late afternoon wine tasting. Great to finish up a day at the office with a little wine. The hot breakfast is better than average. I don't know why buffets use the super... More

Hotel Avante was chosen by our nephew and his fiancee as the "wedding hotel" for their wedding in Mountain View in mid-August. Our family of 8 adults and 3 children booked three rooms here for 4 nights and felt as if we were at home. The front desk staff were all pleasant and accommodating to any need we might have... More

We spent one night in the hotel in August 2014. The rooms are quite small, but very clean and well equipped. The staff were very friendly & helpful, especially Kyle (I think?) who gave us a free late check-out on our room and supplied us with a list of taxi numbers when we told him we were heading out.
