Plaza suites is one to call first if I needed to getaway for the weekend. I came back to this hotel because of the cozy, comfortable and make you feel at home experience. The hot breakfast buffet is no comparison to other hotels I experienced for the value I paid for. Beds are so comfortable and rooms are super clean.... More

First I must apologize for the extra-long review. But there’s just so much about Plaza Suites (PS) that’s worth sharing. I stayed here for a week, end of June, beginning of July. I must say: I was so comfortable at this hotel. I’m a card-carrying member of Marriott, and the last time I stayed in Santa Clara, of course that’s... More

This is a first class hotel right in the heart of Santa Clara. Rooms are clean, beds super comfy, amenities are great. Pool/spa area is very welcoming. They offer a killer complimentary breakfast that would easily be $15. Plus free happy hour drinks. Well worth the price!

Great place to stay, wonderful people and excellent service. Employees are very friendly and always helpful. It was a wonderful experience. I travel for work and have stayed in few places and this was first time at Plaza, since I am picky about my stay I was nervous but totally changed my opinion. Thank you all!!

Stayed here for a week for a training class I was taking in Santa Clara, the hotel is very nice and clean, the people are very friendly. The cleaning people that clean the room pay special attention to getting the room so nice and clean. Enjoyed the stay. Highly recommended....

I stayed here as an overflow for a large group event. Location is ok, free parking. Arrived to an overwhelming smell of some sort of flower( all three days the lobby was toooo aromatic) checked in, room was clean but the hall carpet was never clean. There was linen and food debris in the halls until after 4pm very messy... More

Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. I am sorry your experience was not all together satisfactory, however assure you we will follow-up on the "actionable" items listed in your review. I did want to point out that coffee (flavor) is a very personal thing and that while we offer a breakfast blend at breakfast, we do provide... More

This is a very nice hotel with great suites. The breakfast isn't just a cold Danish but warm food that is better than you would expect. They also have a free happy hour in a quite little lobby bar that I love.

Facilities and site were very clean. Staff was very courteous. Late reservation, but still got a good deal. Would recommend. I have no personal or business relationship with this establishment, and have not been offered any incentive or payment originating from the establishment to write this review

I need to say at the outset that I chose to pay the extra $20/night for the executive floor and requested a quiet room away from the freeway (Hwy 101). I got a room on the top floor that totally suited my need for quiet and I was pretty comfortable. Check-in was very easy and pleasant and the clerk who... More

Very average hotel in Silicon Valley and may not be worth the $ per night. Check in was easy but room cleanliness is an issue. First thing I noticed was dust on bed frame, pictures, night tables, mold in the shower and dirt in the bathroom corners. Sheets were very thin, had holes in them and very worn. I booked... More
