I have stayed Ina least a dozen Aloft hotels, and they can be a bit stiff and plastic, though clean and modern. The Silicon Valley one, however is the least plastic, though more clean and modern - what other Alofts should be. The rooms are huge, the dining area is larger and more comfortable, & the pool area cool and... More

The hotel is really well situated if you want to be close to the peninsula and also the east bay, this was the main attraction to me. Interior decor is modern and up-to-date, slightly crazy stock ticker in the lobby sets some kind of ambience but not entirely sure what. Rooms contain kitchens, but no crockery or cutlery so I...

Stayed one night in March 2014. Great hotel. Nice, clean, and large room. The fitness room was great. The pool super nice. A bit noisy in the lobby with loud music, otherwise great and would return again.

I recently had to travel to the San Francisco area for a funeral. My cousin's husband recommended that we stay at the Aloft. It was a great hotel. Rooms were very big, lots of space for the wife and kids to relax. What made this stay even more pleasant, was the front desk staff, specifically, Jason. He was the one... More

This honestly the first review i've ever written. This place was gorgeous. Very modern, great staff, the amenities were so nice. The bar in the lobby and comfortable lobby seating really created an excellent networking atmosphere. I came here myself traveling for business. Definitely coming back!

Hello! I'm glad you had such a great stay that we inspired you to write a review! We recently updated all of our spaces to become an Aloft Hotel but still have a bit of that W flair. Bar WXYZ is definitely worth a stop in. Networking is often easier over some food and a cocktail. We look forward to... More

Stayed in this hotel when it was called "W" with my family attending a family function nearby. Very spacious and comfortable rooms - Awesome furniture, and Fantastic bathrooms. Very friendly hotel staffs. My boys went for swimming in the pool and they liked it very much. Very elegant, quite atmosphere. Close to highway and Facebook headquarters:D

The hotel is just fine for business travellers. The staff seems to be uncaring to the broken treadmill in the gym (the gym itself is a very tiny and basic one). The swimming pool heater is also broken but to the hotel staff it is just fine. Many days the room service is not carried out and you will find... More

Hotel was good. Great location for my stay for work purposes. The view from my room was looking at a HVAC unit on the roof. Room was better than average so all in all stay was good. As I was not there for fun I did not hunt out any tourist activities. We did taxi to SF that was $120... More
