The Domain Hotel is quite a pleasant surprise. Located on a busy road, it's a bit of a sanctuary. The location isn't great - as there's nothing much around unless you are in need of a tattoo or frequent bikini bars. The decor is tasteful and modern - a toned down version of The Clift or Sanderson style. The rooms... More

Alex is the shuttle driver for the hotel and he made the entire trip. My girlfriend and I have both been visiting silicon valley for interviews. We've stayed together and separately at a number of hotels and The Domain is by far our best experience to date. Alex has a way of connecting with you immediately. Somehow he is able... More

We enjoyed staying at the Domain last month. It has more character than many of the other local hotels which are part of big chains. We thought the pool area was pretty and private and the hotel is spotlessly clean. One evening we spent quite a bit of time in the hotel bar talking to bartenders Jeff and Ulises R.... More

if you're traveling to Silicon Valley, stay at Domain Hotel; the best-kept secret in the San Jose-Palo Alto area. The hotel is in a great location, the room was incredibly comfortable, clean and chic! The bar is great - Jeff a great bartender. I'll stay whenever business takes me to Silicon Valley

We discovered this hotel in June 2013 and have stayed here 6 times in the last year. We come to visit family and each time we have never been disappointed with The Domain. The weekend rates are incredibly reasonable, and we have a favorite room that Todd,the general manager, always has blocked for us. We really appreciate that gesture.The room... More

We stayed here for one night on our drive south from San Francisco. The hotel was easy to find. The decor was very modern and clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had 2 queen beds for around $100/ night. The room was quiet with plenty of plugs for all of our devices. There was a small heated... More

I stayed in this hotel for around 2 weeks before moving to other hotel named StayBridge in Sunnyvale. Domain is good with nice rooms and hospitable front desk people, however little lady who serves juices during breakfast and gives receipts is little annoying. Breakfast is awesome though. Wifi is little bad and hotel expects you to pay extra to get... More
