I have stayed at this hotel probably 10 times in the last 4 years. Typically from Sunday to Friday, sometimes Sunday-Friday the next week. So lots of days. The suite model is really nice. The separate bedroom helps shield you from hallway noise. Bed is comfortable. Living room is nice, wireless and wired internet works great. Bathroom (tub/toilet) is separate... More

We were here for a water polo tournament with our club team. I understand how other guests would be put off the facility with all the teenagers and their parents in residence. Three drink vouchers per night is great, but the lounge area is very small to accommodate all guests in the limited hours of complimentary drink service when the... More

This is my second stay at this hotel. I'm quite a snob about where I stay, so if I return that really says something. I hate hotel beds and can't ever sleep in them. They are all so hard and uncomfortable...irregardless of how expensive the hotel is. I can sleep here. Comfy beds and linens. Friendly staff. Good food for... More

I have mixed opinions about this place. Stayed for business and it served its purpose, but I wouldn't stay for pleasure. The pros: Very friendly staff (reception, bar staff not so much!), three free drink vouchers a night was a nice touch, the beds were so comfy with really soft linen and the rooms were generally nice, good melon salad...

Do yourself a favor and go with a name brand rather than this dump. This hotel is disgusting. The smell of whatever cleaning product they attempt to use gave me a headache for my entire visit. It is dingy and dusty and smelled like mold. They need a complete remodel before I'd step foot in there again. TheThe staff are... More

It is evident our efforts to retain you as our guest while you were in-house were unsuccessful and I am terribly disappointed we were unable to do so. It is true the facility was "stretched" significantly by the groups in-house (which I believe you were part of), and perhaps not in tip-top shape. I do have some difficulty reconciling your... More

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
