stayed for 3 nights - very comfortable, nice modern hotel. Fitness center is somewhat small - food was above average but room service tacked on a service charge and a tip, which made it a bit pricey. Would definitely stay again

I checked in yesterday 12/7 for 2 nights. So far have only had problems at the hotel. It is primarily a business hotel, obviously in the middle of nowhere with nothing around it for a few miles. It's just the hotel and a bunch of business parks surrounding it, so if you are looking for a hotel where you can... More

The rooms are very cute! it was close to being a mini-apartment! there's a big fridge in the room, a living room area, really comfortable bed, and a well-stocked bathroom. The person manning the desk around midnight seemed lost and uninterested. He gave me the vibe of wanting to be doing something else than be there. no hot water. they... More

It used to be a W hotel so it's still got some of the WOW factor and deco which is nice. Ample car parks, nice bar in the lobby and simple but very good restaurant which is also in the lobby which is big. As SPG Plat. I was upgraded to suite which was nice. Hotel is located close to... More

The guy that checked me in was a dear, funny and welcoming in a totally non fake way. The guy in the bar was also super friendly and remembered small details about the guests (such as that I had had Heineken the night before) which I found really nice. Nice rooms, good WiFi, ok food and 24/7 gym.

Liked the room, location and amenities during our short stay in the hotel. Good location as it is very close to the bridge connecting the SFO city and airport (30 min approx in off peak hours) from valley. Room was clean and spacious with no noisy neighbours. Lovely view of the fog hit mornings from the window. Was glad to... More

I had business in Santa Clara and Palo Alto and the hotel was a quick drive to both. Spacious room for the price and solid breakfast. Not a whole lot going on in the immediate area was the only downside.

If you are doing business in Silicon Valley, have a car and don't want to be in the hustle and bustle of downtown Palo Alto, The Aloft Silicon Valley is a great place to stay. It is only minutes from Palo Alto, but you get a lot for your money. Chic and modern, the suite sized room is the price... More

Stayed here instead of on the peninsula. The room was bigger and much cheaper than the alternatives in nearby Palo Alto. Hotel staff very friendly, gym is nice and nice little freebies like bottled water and coffee in room. Few issues. If you order room service, they do not disclose on menu that there is a room fee and delivery... More

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

Hello, We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us again! Having some extra space with the kids will always make any stay, however short, more comfortable. We always try to upgrade if it's available. You'll have to stop in again for a cocktail in Bar W XYZ. See you soon, Alexa More
