I recently stayed at the Hotel Valencia on Business for the second time. It has beautiful rooms, a lovely atmosphere, and a great location with easy access to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. The rooms include free wifi rate-limited to 1.5 mbps or you can pay $10 a night for 5 mbps, both are limited to 5 devices per room. I'd never seen tiered internet in a hotel before and while 1.5 mbps is painfully slow I did reliably get that speed—unlike in many hotels with internet that is unresponsive and prone to connection loss.
In additional to the nice rooms the hotel offers a gorgeous courtyard and above-average complimentary breakfast. I would have liked to see a wine reception in the evenings as many other Silicon Valley hotels have, but its not a deal-breaker.
The only con I can offer is that the hotel feels stuffy and overly formal. The halls were very very quiet, as was the lobby, pool, and courtyard. This may be what you are looking for in a business hotel but I wouldn't want to travel here with kids. I don't think they'd be comfortable and it would be a serious disruption to the atmosphere. I stayed during the week both trips, so perhaps the weekends are different.
