I was very disappointed in the Hotel Aria in Mountain View, Ca. The Internet and WI-Fi was extremely unreliable; either could not connect or constantly dropped. This hotel is in desperate need of upgrades. The furniture and tv are old and outdated. The carpet is filthy. I needed to wear my shoes as clean socks became dirty after crossing the room a couple times. The bathrooms were clean, the room needed dusting. No hotel information directory book detailing checkout times, room service (I don't think they offer room service), suggestions for local entertainment/restaurants, pool operation times (which is too cold to use) etc. The tub drain plug did not seal properly so the water would leak out, no long relaxing soak possible. Only 2 towels were offered in the room, needed to ask for additional towels. The elevator worked but sounded as if it could stop at any time, we generally avoided it and took the stairs.
The complimentary breakfast was average; the standard eggs, sausage, cold cereal, iinstant oatmeal, bread, bagels and muffins. Only fruit offered was bananas except one day they served canned fruit cocktail. There was one restaurant next door which served Indian food.
Building was not very secure as the back door next to the laundry room was often left open so anyone could help themselves in.
We certainly did not feel this hotel was worth the $117.00 we paid for two nights (Sat & Sun) and then increased to $130.00 for the next 3 nights plus 10 percent tax and room tax.
Won't be returning here when we come to the area in the fall.
