Here for 2 weeks on Business Travel.Noise level was acceptable during the week however the weekend was a NIGHTMARE. Screaming,yelling door slamming after midnight. Rema at the front desk is the Poster Woman for RUDE,absolutely no help, no apologies. One room rented to a group of screaming adults, this is not a Hotel for Corporate Travelers, more in line of a Hotel Six, people entering and exiting all night.

Upon check-in the front desk staff was superb. We were greeted with a smile, complimentary granola bars & waters (in a refillable container). Once we got to our room, we had a small mishap with the mini fridge being dirty. I called the front desk and without hesitation they upgraded us to a suite. Rooms were very spacious along with high quality toiletries. After reading reviews about the nightclub, Club Bistro, being catered to ages 40+, we headed their in the evening for dinner & dancing. What a nice surprise! The absolute best time. The food was excellent, drinks were generously poured (alcohol) and the DJ had everyone on the dance floor. The next day we ate brunch (it’s recommended to make reservations). Brunch & bottomless mimosas was amazing! So many food options to choose from. Such an amazing overnight stay from start to finish. We will definitely be back.

I haven't stayed at this hotel, but my family and I have been to the restaurant Cafe Florian within its premises many times for the Sunday Champagne Brunch. We have been pleased and satisfied every time. This most recent time (February 9, 2020) is no exception. It serves excellent food, from fresh seafood appetizers to great hot dishes, excellent egg dishes and omelettes made to order, waffles, breads, cheeses, salads, and very decadent but irresistible desserts. All you can drink champagne, juices, or mixes of both! Above all, the service is very good from the manager Elsa to all the restaurant attendants. They make us feel very welcome. Elsa conducts herself in a very professional and courteous manner, and tries her best to serve her customers well. A very pleasant dining experience. Thank you!

Hotels in or near Silicon Valley are usually poor value, this one turns out to be okay. Property is clean with expected amenities. Neighborhood is quiet and you have plenty of option of food or picking up something quick. Not too far to both SFO or San Jose Airport.
