I've stayed here numerous times in the past when it was the W, and two other times after it's conversion into an Aloft both as a solo business traveler and with family. The rooms are spacious, clean, and include a small microwave and refrigerator. The glassware and bottle openers that were in-room when it was the W have been removed,... More

Pleasant business-class hotel. Larger than average rooms. Free wifi. The only real complaint is that despite the name, it's not anywhere convenient to Silicon Valley. It's a $100+ cab ride from SFO, and that's late at night without any traffic. WIndows in my room were disgustingly dirty, but everything else was clean and new.

It's a little off the beaten path, however if you have a vehicle to get around, it's a really great value. There are plenty of local restaurants & shops less than 5 mins away. The rooms are spacious and very nice. The bed was comfortable so able to get a good night's sleep. The staff was attentive and friendly. Free... More

I guess technically the hotel is in Silicon Valley (if you count the east bay as part of Silicon Valley) but it was a bit out of the way. It is over the bridge from the 101 and the traffic over the bridge can be daunting depending on the time of day - although being next to the wild life... More

The hotel from the outside look nice and the lobby is ok. We checked in and when we went to the room it was right next to the elevator. We tried to call down, but no one answered the phone. So we went down to asked to be moved to a quiet room. The only room that was offered would... More

It's my first time staying at this hotel. Love it. Very clean and modern design. Free parking and wi-fi. Can't beat that. And I usually like my room a bit on the cool side and the AC didn't disappoint me. I actually have to turn it up a little cause it's way too cold. Haha...I will be back.

The hotel itself is fine, the room was large, and the staff was very friendly. And, I greatly appreciate that they were able to accommodate my early check-in. Unfortunately, the faucet dripped loudly, the shower was not clean (there were several obvious hairs of varying color and sizes so not sure when it was last thoroughly cleaned) and my window... More

Stayed three nights on a business trip. Very nice hotel with a sleek and modern room --- actually a spacious studio with sofa, kitchenette, modern bathroom with separate shower. Million dollar view of the wetlands, bay, and mountains. Didn't use the pool, but it looked inviting. The only damper was that the hotel charged us for the 15.00 continental breakfast... More

I stayed at this hotel for business and it was lovely. The staff and the room were top notch. Upon arrival, I was told that the restaurant just closed. However they made a wonderful sandwich nonetheless. The rooms are very clean. It is important for anyone staying at this hotel to know that you will need a rental car. There... More

Great check in. Needed two beds and was given a two king bed room at no additional charge. I was offered a late checkout, most other places I have to ask. Very nice, clean and spacious rooms. I will consider Aloft on my next trip.
