we needed a place to stay at the last minute to avoid driving home after a day in Fremont. We've been to this property before when it was the W, years ago. Josh at the front desk was super accommodating and gave us an upgrade when I told him we had our 2 kids with us. The room was awesome... More

This aLoft was in a class of its own. I've stayed at several others in the chain including Dallas and Jacksonville but this hotel is doing it right. I brought several colleagues from around the country to do some work in the area and chose this hotel for my team. I've heard nothing but great things from everyone and we... More

We stopped for a night and were nicely accommodated. The breakfast buffet is a bit pricey but the a la carte is good and fairly priced. Breakfast staff was very responsive. Overall, if you are passing through the area and heading to an area airport (SFO, Oakland, or San Jose), this is a great alternative to the airport hotels.

The hotel itself is good - clean, big rooms, gym/pool. Good for a business trip. The one downside is that there isn't much to do in the area. If you're heading west, you have to pay 5$ in toll each time you want to drive over the bridge. Oh, and the hotel is near a swamp, so it smells really... More

Was very pleased and surprised by my stay at he Aloft. I've never stayed at one before. I booked this hotel through priceline and although it's not in the heart of Silicon Valley, it's well worth the stay. All the rooms seem upgraded. They have a small living room area and a small kitchen, reminded me of a Marriott Residence... More

5 Star service in GREAT Hotel!! I was in Newark on business and had the pleasure of being booked at the ALoft Silicon Valley. The Hotel itself was perfect, it's formerly a W Hotel in the SPG family so, the Gym Pool, Bar, Restaraunt were just what you needed for common areas. Never had a Wifi issue at all. The... More

The transformation of this hotel from a rather jaded W to a fresh clean Aloft was a pleasant surprise for me. A facelift can make all the difference! This hotel is ideally located for meetings in the Bay Area. The service was excellent, with friendly caring staff. Spacious rooms make it easy to work and feel relaxed at the same... More

I deserve a free breakfast more than the previous reviewer. I am a platinum member and I am not getting free breakfast. The hotel is modern, clean and quiet. There is plenty of free parking. I used one of my 10 free upgrade to get a suite. It was nice. It has two bathrooms and a sofa bed.

The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and spacious. The service at the bar was pretty slow. There was a 60th birthday party going on, so I think they just didn't have enough staff. A free breakfast and better bar service would have earned the hotel 5 stars.

We spent one night at this hotel. Being a Starwood Gold Member, we are upgraded to their Suite. The room was very spacious, clean, comfortable, well laid out. The towels in the washroom had stains which were replaced immediately. The only negative comment I have is the continental breakfast was overly priced at $15.00 ( Overly priced is an understatement).... More
