“DEFINETLY Quite Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I reserved here for one night and after seeing the rooms and feeling the elegance of the hotel and ambiance I had to stay again and again for 2 more nights! Although some nights can be pricey but if you catch it on an inexpensive night you'll be sure to want to stay again! I enjoyed the feel of a home bedroom with beds that are so comfortable we slept like a baby! I highly recommend trying it out for yourself its a very nice hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I just read other recent TripAdvisor reviews for this hotel, and have to say I wasn't offered a free bottle of wine or informed about the free use of the workout facilities across the street! I wasn't nearly as impressed with this hotel as other reviewers appear to be. It looks nice, but my room at the top of the stairs on the third floor faced the open hotel lobby court, so I heard everything happening down there -- the coin collectors meeting, group conversation, young children screaming with glee as they ran around the seating areas, and the moment at about 5:00 a.m. when someone setting up for breakfast service dropped a stack of glasses or plates. The walls between rooms are also quite thin. I stayed at this location several years ago when it was the Radisson, and chose it again for its location, close to where I needed to be. While it has a nice new veneer as the Domain, the spacious lobby area is in fact a sound well and you would be well advised to seek a room inconvenient to the center of the hotel.

Hotel room is nice and clear, bath room is a little bit old but it's ok. Bed is comfortable that you can adjust the softness of the bed by a controller. Hotel lobby looks great, and the location is good.
You can use the fitness center across the street for free, not a fancy one but you should have all the equipment to workout.

I travel to Mountain View fequently and stay at the Domain when I can. It's a little further away from the office than other hotels but is very nice. The staff is very friendly, professional. I get a bottle of wine when I stay, they have have a happy hour with free wine, nice bar/restaurant, rooms are good sized, clean, nice buffet breakfast, access to a health club across the street, etc... all for a very reasonable price.

I have been staying at this property every month for the last 4 years. I refuse to stay anywhere else in Sunnyvale. you can count on getting the best service from the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff. The rooms are wide and clean. The location is very convenient and the staff makes you feel at home. I always recommended this hotel to my company as the best place to stay.

What a great experience I had at The Domain, from check-in to check out! My husband recently had a transplant surgery at Stanford Hospital and this hotel was the perfect fit and location for me and my 20 something daughter. Convenient location and great, personable service. Jeff, Justine and the housekeeping staff were so accomidating and helpful. What could have been a very difficult time during this medical process, The Domain turned out to be the perfect place to unwind and recharge. I will definitely be back! Check out the weekend rate too!
