nice, clean, friendly staff, would recommend this hotel to all my friends. just outside san fran to where we didn't have to be in san fran. very trendy and up to date. i found the deal on hotwire.com so it was less then what the charges where for other websites... It was definitely in my favor.

I stayed at this Aloft location actually in April of 2014 while away on a business trip. The hotel is located in what seemed to be more of an industrial parkway. There is also a starbucks and local shopping area within close distance of the hotel. The rooms has updated nice modern decor, however the decor did not take away... More

THX for the service and the nice stay - prices increased since 2013 but ok. 40 minutes away from SanFran city center via BART train for 12 US$! Come again! Breakfast fine, as well as dinner. Like the GREEN voucher 5 US$ a day IF you do not neet room service - you can use the voucher at the reception... More

This is generally my preferred hotel when on business in the Newark, CA area. The hotel is a revamped W Suites and still has some of the spirit of it's former self. There are no stores or restaurants within walking distance, and so best to have a car. To find a really good restaurant you will have to travel pretty... More

I travel for work and have stayed at this hotel over a hundred nights in the past year. It's an excellent value, the rooms are modern and comfortable, and the staff has always gone out of their way to make me feel welcome. They're the best part along with Botler, their delivery robot. Yes, you read correctly, you have to... More

Generally, I'm not a big fan of the Aloft Hotels. They are loud, noisy, sort of Gen X-ish or younger. But this one is an exception. it used to be a W, so the rooms have retrained their "W"-ness. They haven't gone the hollow imitation of retro route that just feels so contrived (although the pool tables are cool). That... More

I really liked the size and layout of the rooms; I'm always pleased when there is a mini-fridge, too. I thought the pivoting bedside table/headboard and retro alarm clock were very cool touches. My kids l-o-v-e-d the robotic "botlr" and probably would have had it delivering every 10 minutes if I'd let them; it is a neat little novelty and... More

Nicely appointed room with a great shower, the sofa was not that comfortable and the headboard was angled on one end to compensate for the shape of the room. There were some issues with getting our IPhones to work with the SPG app so we could use them for room keys, never getting it to work. Customer service was exemplary... More

Some may think it's pricey but if you really look at the quality... More

Had the pleasure of staying at the Aloft Silicon Valley property this weekend and everything from my warm welcome by the front desk staff (Romina & Josh!) to the front desk follow up for my requests was outstanding. This hotel is modern, up to date and very clean. Comfortable beds and a roomy bathroom that I appreciated very much. I... More
