Mountain View has no good hotels and those hotels it has are always really expensive, but I stay a lot, and move around, and this is an old favourite. The rooms are fine. The service is excellent. The hot tub is great, but often closed - worth checking if this is important to you. The breakfast room is aesthetically poor, but the food is fine. I have stayed here a few times over the years and I came back, so for all my moaning, it must be okay, no? The service makes up for a lot of the other small niggles.

This is a very nice hotel to stay at when staying in town. The location is just perfect where everything is close by or walking distance. The staff and amenities offered is everything you need to feel right at home. There is refreshments and snacks almost everywhere and that definitely amazed me because I am a big time foodie mll. Breakfast selections are definitely on point and the staff are so friendly. Each staff from housekeeping greets you every morning and they make sure everything is perfect! I highly recommend Hotel Avante to anyone. The room and bed is spacious too along with the beautiful pool and fitness center!

Clean, comfortable, and pleasant. Enjoyed the pool area. Good service. Several restaurants within walking distance. Not a luxury hotel; just a good, solid, well done value-for-money hotel with a touch of flair.

This is an older building that was likely originally an apartment building, so I understand there are limitations. However, the bed was uncomfortable (seems like a worn-out lumpy mattress). The AC was extremely loud (there are significantly quieter window ACs that you find at Courtyard type hotels) and didn't really cool to the other 65 degrees I set it at. The included breakfast is full of cheap unhealthy stuff (I didn't even bother with it on the second day); its likely better to have a smaller selection but go a bit upscale on the options. I am a Marriott Ambassador and typically stay at those hotels (btw, their options are nothing special in the area either) and recently signed up for a Hyatt Globalist challenge and thought would give this hotel a try since its very close to my office. I have stayed at 50+ Hyatts previously (though only Park/Grand/Regency) and the Avante appears to be more at the Courtyard by Marriott level hotel, so not a fair comparison to the previous Hyatt experiences. The staff has the right intention but appear to be poorly trained. And it does not seem like the hotel has thought through how to offer Hyatt elite benefits seamlessly (e.g. getting the bill corrected for water). I will give the hotel another shot next week given the very convenient location to my office and my need to get in 20 Hyatt nights within 90 days.

Thank you for your honest feedback, and we look forward to exceeding your expectations on your upcoming stay. Please don't hesitate to let the front desk know of any details or amenities we may attend to on your behalf to ensure your next stay is better than your last. While our new mattresses will not arrive in time for your stay next week, we would hope that your upcoming stay will be a step in the right direction of resetting your expectations.
