Large, comfortable room with sofa, refrigerator, microwave oven, separate shower and bathtub, big flat screen TV, gym and pool. The beds were extremely comfortable and the entire hotel was clean with a very attentive staff. The food in hotels restaurant is excellent as well as the drinks! 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

We love this boutique hotel. Great location. The staff is awesome. Parking is free. They have a restaurant unlike the other locations as far as I know. But the thing I think my family and I enjoyed the most was the BOTLR. This awesome programmed little robot delivers to your room. When he arrives at your door he calls your... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for the weekend. The staff was so nice, and went above and beyond their job. My partner and I were staying there as a surprise birthday present for him, as well as celebrating our recent feat of graduating college. Our room had an amazing room decorated by the staff with adorable... More

this is a good central location if you have to cover many parts of the bay area -- easy to get south to San Jose and easy to go west to Sunnvale and Palo Alto. The hotel would be better if it offered a complimentary breakfast like so many of its competitors, but rooms are large and very comfortable.

1st time at Aloft property. Been to most other Westin branded properties, and this is best described as the young (read; poorer) person's W. Lobby area had a decent bar and complimentary morning coffee, with live evening music during happy hours. Rooms were well sized for area with microwave, bar sink and fridge. Separate bath and shower and nice comfy... More

Aloft has big spacious rooms which I appreciate when I'm traveling for a week for work. There's grocery stores, drive thru Sbux and some restaurants a short car ride away. The lobby got loud and busy most nights, So the manager was very accommodating to my party of 7 to go to a quiet boardroom to eat and work. Live... More

The staff and management at Aloft Silicon Valley made our experience such a wonderful one. My sons LOVED the robot who delivered their soda and water (compliments of the hotel). Mr. Malmquist (the GM) made sure we had everything we needed and was so kind. I look forward to staying with them again.

The hotel was better than we expected! The rooms was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. I always appreciate black out curtains and a quiet hotel. The restaurant had good food, but poor service. The bar got quiet busy and they press press their own juices which I love. Next time we are in Newark, we will choose to... More

I stayed recently since it was near Stanford and had free parking, which is getting harder to find. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel services and large rooms. I love that they are making green attempts, they have dispensers in the shower instead of those wasteful little bottles, which i loved! The coffee and breakfast was great. It was... More
