I stayed here on business a while back. From the outside it looks like a discount motel, but once inside it was clean and the guy at the front desk (forgot his name) was very helpful through out my stay. I was offered a free USA today and chocolate chip cookie on check in, which is a nice touch to... More

Pretty disappointed give the price paid >$200. Room clean but very noisy. You can hear neighbors talking, showering, etc.. Breakfast typical American style motel breakfast, nothing special but scrambled eggs were horrible (this prefabricated crap).

The hotel is as clean as can be expected given how old it is. The wallpaper is yellowed and peeling, the walls are spotted with ages-old stains, and my couch even had a semen stain from who-knows-which decade. The carpet is so faded that I couldn't tell whether it's clean. Nothing was really great. The staff seemed friendly enough, but... More

Mid-week December: Got a low rate at Hotel Aria and for the single night I was there, it was completely satisfactory. I received excellent front-desk service, was granted a 1-hour late check-out (the hotel was not very busy), and best of all the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. This is a motel-style inn and the amenities... More

When the three-start hotels in the Valley are full, this is a good hotel to reserve before resorting to something sub-par. It's a bit pricey for what you get, but it's a good night's sleep. The bedding is comfortable. The breakfast is decent. The rooms are a bit dark and bland, but they're otherwise comfortable. My single room had a... More

Very clean, nice bed and linens, with a friendly staff. I was at a conference and I had trouble finding one hotel I could stay at for consecutive nights. Therefore I bounced around and saw several other hotels that were around the same price range in this area. This hotel is much nicer, cleaner, and more professional than any of... More

My room was quite tired - the whole place felt like it was an up-market motel rather than a hotel. That said, the bed was excellent and it's nice and quiet. Breakfast was reasonable, although plastic cutlery and plates made it feel very downmarket - and not what I'd expect for $300 a night.

Being the "cool" travelers that we are, we stopped first at the Residence Inn (Marriott) just down the street. At $319 per night, I smiled, thanked the clerk and checked my app "Around Me" for a second choice. Just down the street we found the Hotel Aria. It is just as nice, clean, well kept and maintained as any Marriott... More

Since October of 2006, I have had the pleasure of knowing Sri, the hotel's general manager. I stay there 12-15 times a year. Always a great experience. Breakfast is very good and the Whole Foods store is a short walk away. Get their "meal deal" and eat dinner in your room.
