Stayed at the hotel Valencia during a three day business trip. The staff and room was great.
For those not familiar with Santana Row, it's an urban version of Main Street USA. Where retail, restaurants, and housing blend together to create a walkable urban space. The great thing about Santana row is also one of the minor issues with the hotel. The streets and crowds can be loud at night. Ask for a courtyard room to minimize the noise. Otherwise, the hotel is ultra convenient and in the heart of Santana Row. You never need to drive anywhere while staying at the hotel.
The hotel room was fantastic and so was the staff. The room was clean, comfortable and large. Plenty of space to relax and take it easy after a long day. The bed was extremely comfortable and my room was quite...I asked for a courtyard room upon check-in. The hotel offers a free breakfast buffet every morning. The selection of breakfast items was the perfect to the day.
The only concern I had with the hotel was the general maintenance of the common areas. The hallway carpet on the 6th floor look dirty and in some places the carpeting was starting to ripple. Also, the bar and lobby needed to be freshened up as it was looking dark and dirty.
One tip, save yourself $24 a night and self-park. The underground parking garage is only a short walk around the corner from the hotel and has plenty of spaces for those that park overnight.
I would definitely come back again. The hotel didn't get five stars from me due to the lack of common area maintenance. However, I heard the hotel is expecting to remodel soon which once complete will change my rating from four to five stars.
