I've stayed at the Pruneyard Plaza Hotel a couple times in the past when it was still owned and managed under the Larkspur Hotel chain. I do like the outward modifications that Doubletree has made since acquiring the Pruneyard Plaza Hotel. The lobby end entrance are much brighter and warm. Pros of the Pruneyard Plaza Hotel: (1) Location, location, location: Being located in the Pruneyard plaza is one of the main Pro's of this hotel. You have everything you need within walking distance from the hotel...from restaurants, fast food, grocery stores, all kinds of shopping, creekside walking trail that goes all the way to Los Gatos, park & playground, and quick access to the freeway. (2) Complimentary Continental Breakfast: WE all know that nothing in life is free...anything that's marketed as "complimentary" with a paid hotel reservations simply means that the cost of your breakfast has been worked into your hotel reservation price. But with that said, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the complimentary continental breakfast at the Pruneyard Plaza hotel. Their pastries actually seemed somewhat fresh. They had fruits, cereals, hot oatmeal w/toppings, yogurts, breads, and more. (3) Rooms & Pricing: their rooms are somewhat spacious and well maintained. I'd say that their room pricing is on par or maybe even a little cheaper than other equivalent hotels. For the location, the price is pretty good. They also have some rooms with small kitchenettes which are nice for small families (but some Cons come with these rooms too) (4) Plenty of Parking: Lots and lots of parking for this hotel. Since it's located in a huge shopping center, there is parking everywhere. And since it also has restaurants, there are always people around at night...so you feel somewhat safer walking to your car at night. (5) Free Wireless: there are many hotels that state they have wireless access at their hotel. Then when you get there you realize that their wireless is handled through a 3rd party provider and it's a Paid per Usage service. At the Pruneyard Plaza Hotel, the wireless is free (or included with your room price)..no additional costs. ONLY 2 Personal CONs to the Pruneyard Plaza Hotel: (1) Poolside Rooms: The pool at the hotel stays open til 10pm at night. Many times, you will have folks taking advantage of the late closing hours. And as a result, you have lots of noise (metal gate slamming shut, kids yelling & screaming, and adults talking loudly in attempt to have a conversation over the yelling & screaming of their kids in the pool. THUS, all of the poolside rooms (especially bottom level rooms) get to "enjoy" all of the entertaining noise til 10pm. Also, all of the hotel rooms with kitchenettes (which are good for families) are pool side on the bottom level. Many of these rooms are occupied by families with kids...which is great, if you have kids of age who want to go swimming at night. BUT WARNING TO FAMILIES WITH TODDLERS & BABIES...Do NOT reserve these poolside rooms with kitchenettes. Your toddler or baby that usually has bed time hours starting at 8pm or sooner will NOT be able to sleep. Too Much Noise at night by the pool. (2) NON-SMOKING ROOMS?: During my past 2 stays at this hotel, I've stayed in the poolside kitchenette room and an upper level backside room. Both of these rooms were listed as NON-SMOKING. But for some reason, the room REEEEEEKED like smoke. I think some of these rooms may have been "smoking " rooms at one time and converted into non-smoking rooms. Unfortunately, the smoke smell is still in the walls and flooring...or simply stained within the air conditioning machine that is blowing the "smoke smelling" air throughout your room.
