I found the hotel to be very hip but laid back. The service was really great, especially the front staff. Jeff the bartender was so friendly, fun and solicitous. Recommend it highly if you're in the area for business.

I stayed at The Domain Hotel for two nights while I attended a training class. The room was very nice: super comfortable bed, spotless linen (a must for me!), and my room was in a very quiet part of the hotel. The service was really above and beyond - quick and pleasant check-in and check-out. Wish I had gotten the... More

Stayed for 2 days on business. The hotel is set up very simply, but rooms are well appointed with all the amenities needed to ease a business traveler's needs. Wifi is strong, breakfast is delicious. Do not use Google maps to find this place by name though (address is fine) - that will direct you to another hotel a mile... More

Stayed for 2 days for work. This is my second visit to a Joie de Vivre hotel and I loved it. Jeff at the Bytes Bar made the entire stay. He goes above and beyond, and really made us feel like VIPs. If you stay at the Domain, make sure you see Jeff.

After a long long day with conference, meetings and busy work I finally made it to the Domain hotel around 9pm. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was good, clean and adequate.

A girlfriend & I recently opted for a long weekend away in Sunnyvale at The Domain. The staff, namely Jeff & Alex, were amazingly attentive to our needs, as well as helping with creative suggestions for siteseeing in the immediate area. Happy hour drinks, calamari, & their company were a great start to our evening. We'd definitely recommend The Domain... More

I only had the opportunity to stay here for one night but I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future. It's a nice, trendy hotel that seems to cater to the tech savvy business crowd.

This hotel is very smart in appearance. Clean lines, upscale look. Rooms are a good size. Bed is the sleep number which is nice. Didn't try the food. Basic wifi in the room was spotty (you can upgrade to faster wifi for $10 per day ). The AC/heating unit is very loud, I don't think it got upgraded with the... More
