Well, it's hard to go wrong with a Hilton, I guess. There is also a Courtyard by Marriott, and a Cypress Hotel (Kimpton) which AAA gives four diamonds. .thecypress hotel.com

I am surprised about Saratoga Oaks. I was looking at their website for a friend and it looked lovely.

If you're talking about the Hilton Garden Inn on Wolfe at 280, I work across the street from it. Coworkers from out of town who have stayed there said it was fine. It's very close to the freeway and very "corporate". It's also a good distance from the winery and there are many places much closer. Have you tried the hotels in Los Gatos? The Toll House has always been highly recommended although I've only eaten there.

I'm also surprised by the reviews of Saratoga Oaks as it looks like a nice place. Big Basin Way is the main street through Saratoga village, but the speed limit is only like 25 mph and I can't imagine the traffic would be that noisy but who knows?
