It was a tough call, but I am going to give it 4 stars. The good: it is very close to many silicon valley companies with little or no traffic in the morning or in the evening even during rush hour. Very nice in room kitchens. Excellent and very helpful front desk staff. The Internet is not bad at all... More

Our 1st time staying in area, due to our 2 year old granddaughters recent diagnosis with Leukemia. She's being treated at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, so we needed to find a place nearby for frequent visits. This is probably farther than we'd like to be, but we're unfamiliar with the layout of town. Close to lots of shopping... More

Always happy when I stay in a nice hotel....and this morning I woke up extremely happy! Great concept: no seperate rooms, but little appartments with tv/sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. All spotlessly clean. This morning a fantastic breakfast with anything you can think of. And the best WiFi possible! I have stayed at hotels that are triple this price...but... More

Stayed here 7 nights (29/01 - 05/02) as part of a business trip, location in terms of downtown San Francisco is quite far, you are about 1hr 20 mins from San Francisco using the local train service at Mountain View station, the service is known as the Caltrain. Mountain View station is about 5 mins away in a taxi or... More

This was my first time staying in Mountain View. There is sticker shock on the room rates but that is the case with all of the lodging in this area. My room was very clean and comfortable. The suite arrangement was very functional and the internet speed was good for working in the room. Breakfast in morning was good but... More

This was the 2nd time I stayed at this hotel with my family. We went back because the kids really liked the penthouse suite and the rooms were more spacious than most others. However, it was an overall negative experience this time. 1. Nonfunctional door lock and one unfriendly staff - I went out for an event and returned to... More

Stayed here for business. The desk staff are very nice and courteous - I got in late and was only staying the night so they didn't charge me for parking. The room was huge, and I assume this is more for an extended stay arrangement because there was a great kitchen, sitting area and large bathroom. The place was spotless.... More

The hotel appears to have taken over an old apartment building, with "old" being the key word. While some items felt fresh (such as the countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms), other items felt old and dingy (particularly the carpet). We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, but the sink and the bathtub in one of the bathrooms did not... More
