They serve a wonderful complimentary breakfast with eggs, bacon and sausage, french toast, fresh fruit (blueberries and blackberries not just melons), yummy pastries, and orange juice/coffee. Don't go for a dive Inn or a national chain hotel;... More

Hotel was fine for a one night stay for business in the area. I had a room out if the way (on a side wing away from the elevators and indoor balconies overlooking the reception area). My room was clean but there was a very unattractive looking stain on the floor that made me wonder if a crime had been... More

Friendly staff working at the front desk and in the restaurant and bar, the room was comfortable and spacious. Jeff and Ulises in the bar know their stuff and are very friendly. Free wifi is pretty fast, too.

This review is specific to Alex, who drove the shuttle to Mountain view from the hotel. I do not have as much time as I'd like to write a long review, but I wanted to briefly describe what a great experience it was. He went out of his way to get me to an interview on time, was extremely friendly,... More

Very good service, I arrived early because of an early international flight, they actually gladly receive me in and checkin for me immediately. Staffs are very helpful and nice, very safe area. Really good location for silicon valley business visitings. I strongly recommend it.

It seems this hotel is a renovated hotel, not sure what hotel property was there before, but definitely now it is renovated. The problem is that in a way I feel the renovation has not been finished properly. First the rooms, on first appearance they look nice, however if you look at the details things are missing, like for instance... More
