Stayed for business - hotels in area booked out with only this left.The hotel is clean and tidy. A lot of space - had a bed room and a separate adjoining living area. Good value for money. However, the age of the building is apparent. The lifts creak, and the hallway has a carpet that has a damp-like smell to... More

I love this hotel. I think of it as little, but it has over two hundred rooms on seven floors. I've stayed here two months out of three for nine months now. Many of the front desk personnel recognize me and sometimes greet me by name before I even check in. Marilyn Williams, in the bar where I dine nearly... More

My second visit to the place, I was here last year and this time I was on the first floor and I don't feel it was immacutely clean. It's spacious, with a king size bed and a sofa bed. The toilet is rather old, and needs repainting. I only had one breakfast and not happy with the omelet I ordered.... More

We choose to stay here again because we enjoyed our last stay so much! So I booked this hotel for both my family and my parents. The parking is free and breakfast was free. But the wi-fi was not free on this trip (it was complimentary on our previous trip in Sept). Also, the complimentary toiletries were awful. Soap was... More

Plaza Suites is a great place to find single and double suites in the Santa Clara area. It's easy on-off the 101 freeway. The suites have two televisions; one in the bedroom and one in the sitting room. They serve a full breakfast (included in stay) in the morning with plenty of coffee, juices, eggs, etc. On weekdays, we found... More

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....
