Note to hotel: When you don't upgrade a Platinum member and put them in an average room, don't expect a good review.
So rather than building the hotel high, the Sheraton Sunnyvale opted to spread out the rooms in multiple buildings scattered across the property. The building I was in was two stories tall. Only problem is that my room was on the 2nd floor with NO elevator. Dragging your luggage up flights of stairs is not what you want to do on a Monday evening.
When I got into my room, I was rather disappointed as noted in my introductory paragraph. I booked a room with a King size bed and honestly I have no idea how they fit it into such a small space. In fact, the bed seemed to be way too big for the room. The bathroom was also very small. I felt claustrophobic as I maneuvered my way around the room. For a property that's so spread out, I would think that they could build some larger rooms. Guess I was wrong.
Went to the restaurant, which I heard was supposed to be good. My girlfriend tried to order a couple of items and they were out of both. She asked for salmon and they had run out. She also asked for a mojito, but they apparently ran out of mint! I'll write another review on the restaurant separately, but felt that it was still technically part of my hotel experience.
I can't drop the rating below 3 stars though as it is a Starwood property and Starwood for the most part maintains a high level of quality. However, comparing this hotel to other Starwood properties particularly in the South Bay, I'd have to say that it's below average. At least the parking is free and the location is convenient if you are traveling to Sunnyvale or Mountain View for business. Otherwise, I'd definitely recommend the Sheraton San Jose in Milpitas if you are looking for a moderately priced Starwood hotel in the South Bay.
