This is generally my preferred hotel when on business in the Newark, CA area. The hotel is a revamped W Suites and still has some of the spirit of it's former self. There are no stores or restaurants within walking distance, and so best to have a car. To find a really good restaurant you will have to travel pretty... More

I travel for work and have stayed at this hotel over a hundred nights in the past year. It's an excellent value, the rooms are modern and comfortable, and the staff has always gone out of their way to make me feel welcome. They're the best part along with Botler, their delivery robot. Yes, you read correctly, you have to... More

Generally, I'm not a big fan of the Aloft Hotels. They are loud, noisy, sort of Gen X-ish or younger. But this one is an exception. it used to be a W, so the rooms have retrained their "W"-ness. They haven't gone the hollow imitation of retro route that just feels so contrived (although the pool tables are cool). That... More

I really liked the size and layout of the rooms; I'm always pleased when there is a mini-fridge, too. I thought the pivoting bedside table/headboard and retro alarm clock were very cool touches. My kids l-o-v-e-d the robotic "botlr" and probably would have had it delivering every 10 minutes if I'd let them; it is a neat little novelty and... More

Nicely appointed room with a great shower, the sofa was not that comfortable and the headboard was angled on one end to compensate for the shape of the room. There were some issues with getting our IPhones to work with the SPG app so we could use them for room keys, never getting it to work. Customer service was exemplary... More

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.
