This hotel is really a gem and I'm at loss as to why some reviews are negative.
Location: one block off University Avenue, which is the main drag of silicon valley chock full of boutiques and restaurants.
Hotel: gorgeous lobby retaining many of the original 1920's details.
We had a two room suite. It wasn't huge, but large enough. Fold out bed in the living room. Bed was comfortable. Heating was by means of an old fashioned battery, which required a call to the lobby to learn to operate. Some rooms share bathrooms. I've looked in these shared bathrooms and were very clean. Few hotels in the area offer suites, and this one at $200/nite was a good deal.
