This hotel was modern. There was even a robot that would bring up extra towels when needed. The morning breakfast was decent but not cheap. The pool was being renovated during our stay but we still got to use it a couple times. The front desk was nice enough to find an alternative hotel that provided a pool for us... More

It was a W, and very swanky, but is lost amidst the salt flats of the bay. It still has a party atmosphere on the weekend and can draw an unsavory crowd. It is nice, but chipped. The rooms I have stayed in were very clean but needed a dab of paint here and there. I have trouble getting the... More

I'm not usually a big fab of Alofts, this one however is different. For melt a W, it has a full service restaurant and a proper bar. Not a vacation get away. It's located pretty much in a corporate park but with access to hiking, biking and running trails it Works very well for business travel.

My son and I do a couple of hotel getaway vacations every year. Excellent hotel. They still have ROOM SERVICE! Not just a list of takeout restaurants. My 1 complaint is that they don't seem to have rooms with 2 doubles

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend during some business at Stanford. Our room was spacious and worked well for our purposes (needed to spread out and get some work done). The public areas were also attractive. Staff we interacted with were generally friendly. The a la carte breakfast we had was tasty (the continental one looked pretty bad).... More

Was here on business for one night and Aloft was close to where my meetings were. Check-in was easy and the staff very friendly. My room was spacious and clean. The free bottled water was a nice addition. Will definitely stay again when I'm in the area.

When we arrived, the computer system was down (in Silicon Valley, no less) so we couldn't check in but we were given vouchers for drinks in the lounge while the system was repaired. A nice gesture. The food and drink in the lounge were just average but the service behind the bar was good. Our rooms were large with a... More

Overall I like this hotel as the rooms are spacious and well appointed. However, I recently stayed and the rooms smelled poorly and were cold. There were also odd groups of people parked in the back of the hotel late at night. It appeared as if they were casing the parking lot. The food service was very poor as 2... More
