Just finished a week stay here. It's a nice place and I cannot complain too much. I do agree with the reviewers that the fuzzy analog TV service to the rooms was surprising especially since their lobby/barTVs are digital. The WiFi service has an antiquated network admission restriction that only lets you have two devices connected at once. That was... More

Stayed here on a business trip as it was the highest rated Santa Clara hotel on TripAdvisor. Check-in was fast and very professional, but from there the disappointments began. While the lobby is very nice, the halls are dark and outdated. The rooms are clean and well kept but the carpet has a horrid aroma - not an issue unless... More

Thanks for your candid feedback and for staying with us. We are actually in the process of finalizing the details of a corridor renovation (a sneak peak of which you can see on our third floor). A facet of the renovation does address lighting improvements which are high on our list. The hotel was built in the early 1990's and... More

Free drinks 5-7, free full buffet breakfast all under $100. All rooms are suites with separate bedrooms and pull out love seats. Spa wasn't so warm but pool and area was very nice along with the restaurant and room service

Pretty nice hotel near a number of different corporate offices. Great breakfast and decent hotel bar. Bathrooms are a bit small, but service was quite good and friendly. Parking is at a premium during the week.

The staff are all extremely helpful and courteous. Always willing to give good advice on local amenities or restaurants even though the Bistro in the Hotel serves excellent food and at good prices too. The complimentary local Shuttle Bus is a nice touch. If I am ever lucky enough to get to visit California again I would have no hesitation... More

The rooms are suites with three living areas. All rooms were very clean. The room service was the best food we ate during this weekend! They offer a happy hour with a very nice staff that smile while they work. The front office continues the smiles and drove us to the airport in their van for free, (we provided a... More

I don't always book a reservation in Santa Clara, but when I do, I book it here. Very nice hotel, and the restaurant makes the best Rib Eye I've ever had. The breakfast isn't the best I've had, but it isn't bad and the selection is decent.

I don't know why I was expecting a room with bed and bath and that's it. Very professional and courteous. They asked me at check in if I needed a wake up call which was exactly what I needed and rarely remember until late at night. They have a full service custom order breakfast included in room price. The rooms... More
