I visit Silicon valley several times a year on business and have stayed at several hotels in this area. I have met people at the Valencia for drinks but this is the first time that I have stayed here. Easily my favorite hotel compared to the others.Location location location.

Great location in San Jose but the hotel is very average. Restaurant was closed for lunch, decor is pretty basic, I asked for early breakfast and they forgot to bring it. I'm also not sure what's going on when you ask for a taxy because it looks like you have to wait for long to get the taxes they want... More

Set up as a extended stay hotel. Nothing here would want me to stay again. Was difficult to find a nice place to eat. Everything in walking distance was your typical fast food restaurant. Upside....beds were comfortable.

HVSR, General Manager at Hotel Valencia - Santana Row, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. However, I am a little perplexed as we are not an extended stay hotel and there are no fast food restaurants within Santana Row. I would love to talk with you personally to go over your perceptions of the Hotel Valencia and the area. Cordially, Bonnie Best, General Manager More

Stayed here on business...the arrival experience is awful, dank and dark entry off the street into a creaky, dirty old elevator....common areas feel like they came out of Home Depot. Rooms are ok but not great. Workout facility is an afterthought. Breakfast was ok

For Local Bay Area ...this is best choice . 300/ night quite high tag price . Love to put my guests in when they visit Bay Area but wish the price is more affordable . Weekend & holiday is better price when all the Business ppl away .

Was fortunate enough to stay at this hotel on a Visit to Northern California! I'm more one for a view of the water, but the balcony room overlooking Santana Row was awesome! Will be coming back for sure when I get the chance!

Nice room. Great service for the most part. The odd things that made the room not quite right: - no towel bars. I don't like having to reach to the farthest corner to grab a towel out of a basket on the floor. - no light switches near the bed - lighting overall was pretty bad The bar on site,... More

We wanted a quick getaway from the city so we chose Hotel Valencia mainly for the pool, but the whole property definitely exceeded our expectations! Location is right in the middle of Santana Row, so there's a bunch of places to eat/drink/shop nearby. Our king room facing the courtyard/pool was modern and very spacious. FYI - You can hear people... More

Beautiful hotel situated in a very nice mall. We loved the relaxing rooftop pool and the chic decor. The room was spacious and luxurious, with a nice balcony. My only complaint was that there was some noise at night (the adjacent room's door slamming would cause our headboard to shake, and we could hear the occasional loud car passing in... More

We arrived at 3pm on a Sunday and all restaurants and lounges on the property were closed. The gentleman who checked us in helped us get appetizers and beverages while waiting for the restaurants to open. Excellent service, even from the kitchen staff. Even though this hotel recently went through a major renovation, rooms are cramped and seem dated (bathrooms),... More
