Remember the good old days? They still exist at the Valley Ho. This pristine property recaptures midcentury coolness in a fresh way. The rooms are spacious, fun and the bathroom is airy with its opaque glass and subway tile shower and separate deep bathtub. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The outdoor dining patio is relaxing and food delicious with many homemade offerings. Since we were here on business, it was greatly appreciated how the hotel managed so many large groups, kept them separate, and maintained a charming low key boutique hotel atmosphere. Also appreciated the easy walking to nearby galleries, restaurants and gift shops.

Room Tip: Preview the hotel's layout to insure you get the appropriate location for your room. Families m...

I loved this little quirky hotel! It was originally built in the 50's or 60's but has been completely renovated to all the modern amenities but they retained all the charm of that era. The rooms have balconies - I sat outside for an hour before bed and just listened and watched the starts. The rooms are large and the bed was great. I didn't eat at the restaurant but the menu looked good. Only downside was the wine and beer choices at the bar. None of the house wines were very good. The bar itself is great though - right out of the Jetson's! I'll definitely go back!

This property is very unique and special. The hotel was built in the Sinatra-era 60's, and the restoration design remains faithful to the era, with an upscale twist. Pool and cabana areas are phenomenal. Weekends with a DJ at the pool draw the party crowd.

I stayed at the Hotel Valley Ho for a conference recently and was impressed. The decor and layout is perfect, if you want a retro 60's vibe this is the place.

Take a walk around the grounds of the hotel. You'll be surprised how far it goes. Don't miss the second pool too, I didn't even notice it for the first day I was there.

Be sure to speak with Ace. She is the best concierge I have ever come across. She really knows the city and can make fantastic walking tour recommendations. It is clear she loves her job.

The outdoor fire pit is the perfect place for late night cocktails with friends. I love this hotel and plan to return!

Fantastic stay at the Ho. The decor is ultra cool and the pool is the best, as soon as you arrive you are greeted with a smile and a tall glass of ice water. You can order lunch poolside from the fantastic ZuZu restaurant. Beware, once you vacate your lounge chair, staff quickly clear away your towel allowing the next guest to enjoy, which I love! Staff were so helpful and attentive. I highly recommend this hotel.

When my company scheduled an event at Valley Ho, I thought "oh, no....that place was built WHEN?!" What a nice little surprise when I checked in. From the valet to the front desk, the accomodations to the pleasant and friendly staff - the entire experience was fantastic! The property has been tastefully decorated in an art-deco, boutique hotel style. My room was FAB! Check out room 304. You couldn't ask for more!!!

Room Tip: Select a west facing room for those awesome sunsets
