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

I bid on Priceline and was given this property. I had a quick one night stay and it had everything I needed. My wife and I stayed here many years ago when it was the W. Done if the decor needs updating as it is showing it's age. Staff was friendly, room was clean.

I have stayed here earlier a couple times a few years ago when the hotel was still branded as W hotel. I believe they closed the property for a few months for renovations before opening reflagged Aloft. To me the changes were not really substantial - the hotel felt like it was the last time I was there. The location... More

I stayed at the Aloft Silicon Valley for a week and was quite impressed with the level of excellent and consistent service, friendly staff, spacious well appointed rooms, free WiFi that worked well, and tasty food from the in-house restaurant. The only minor drawback (at least for me) was the location next to a technology park with not much else.... More

I stayed in this hotel on two occasions. Positives: clean, modern, spacious room, inexpensive (considering it's Silicon Valley) Room for Improvements: restaurant food could be better (both breakfast items and dinner); restaurant service too Avoid: rooms on the first floor since the bar plays loud music which can be heard late at night and early in the morning

I use the Aloft @ Silicon Valley in Newark when I visit for business. Compared to downtown San Francisco, the prices are very reasonable and the quality is just fine for a business trip. It's close to SFO and San Jose airports, which make getting there easy. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are clean, and the hotel appearance... More

We stayed here for one night after arriving at the San Jose airport en route to Sea Ranch. We were traveling with our dog, and this was a perfect stop over. It's about 20 minutes away from the airport and easy to get to. The hotel is located in a business park (empty on the weekends) and near the Don... More

We had a short two night stay over the weekend. Our first floor room was clean and spacious. We were pleasantly surprised at the large size of the room. We only used the refrigerator in the kitchenette but it had ample counter space and nice under cabinet lighting. Bathroom had a tub and shower with Bliss products. Great bed and... More
