I checked several hotels in the SJ area online two weeks before our travel time, but did not really book anything until 2 days before our travel time. Since we knew we won't be arriving SJ until after midnight and will leave first thing in the morning. We don't want to spend a lot just to find a bed to sleep, but we also want some place clean and descent.. I check online again and saw the room rate of this hotel is very good and it has high mark reviews so i go ahead and book it.
We arrived after midnight on a Friday. Check in quickly. It is a 7 stories hotel, we stayed on the 7th floor. The lobby is nicely decorated and the hallway is clean and bright. We had a Queen Studio. Open our room and there is soft music coming from the clock radio. There is a small kitchenette equipped with a sink, 2 stoves, dishwasher, almost full size refrigerator coffee maker and all the kitchen utensils needed to make a meal if you don't want to eat out. A desk with high back leather chair. A small sitting area with flat panel TV. The bed is very comfortable.
The bathroom is a bit small, but no complaint since everything else is so nice. Don't turn on the heater or air conditioner if you don't need to because it is a bit noisy.
Internet access is provided free. Breakfast included and not bad.
It has all the basic breakfast items include make your own omelette. You choose your ingredients and someone will cook for you. For all those Starbuck lovers, they provide Starbuck coffee.
The area the hotel located is very nice. Right outside the hotel is a small shopping areas with several eateries. Around the area are lots of new apartment or condo.
I am highly recommended this hotel for anyone.

I read a few of the reviews and thought this place would be a "decent" place to stay while in Santa Clara. When I arrived, I was blown away!

The rooms are super clean, well laid out so there's plenty of room to relax, work, eat and sleep. The decors of the rooms rival that of the W or other "bougie" hotels. There's also good lighting and the street noise is not bad even at the lower floors.

Even on arrival, the lobby, elevators, and dining area had very classy decorations; everything felt new and clean.

The lady at the desk was responsive, courteous and all around pleasant.

Having stayed at quite a few hotels in the area, I would definitely say this is hands down one of the best, if not THE BEST in the area!

I stayed at Hotel Sierra during a week-long training in nearby Mountain View.
The location of this hotel is perfect. It is situated in the "Rivermark" planned neighborhood, kind of a little upscale oasis in Santa Clara. The homes are beautiful, there is a HUGE grassy park area withing walking distance, even the cops were friendly.
The hotel is surrounded by restaurants (red robin, quizno's, cold stone, mcdonalds, pizza, asian, and much more), shops, a grocery store, and easy access to Hwy 101.
The room was nicely done. The kitchenette had a sink, coffee pot, microwave, fridge/freeezer, dishwasher, and fully stocked cupboards (utensils, plates, glassware, pots and pans, etc.)
The desk was perfect for getting some work done, the couch while not super comfortable worked for kicking back and watching TV on the flat screen LCD.
The bed was very nice, comfortable and big, the alarm clock with Ipod hookups was great to have.
The bathroom was nice, with a nice sized granite counter top and big closet. I thought the tub/shower combo was pretty cheap. Felt like one of those "Bath Fitters" inserts and the faucet was kinda loose.
I had read a lot of complaints about the breakfast buffet here but I was pleasantly surprised. If you are looking for a 4-star breakfast...you will be disappointed. If you are expecting a step above the normal continental hotel breakfast then you will not be let down. Every morning we had fruit, some sort of eggs (usually scrambled), sausage or bacon, hash browns or fried potatoes, bagels, croissants, bread, cereals, and omelette's. I ate there every morning and was not disappointed...especially when you consider the price.
The staff was very nice, the laundry facilities were good if not a bit on the pricey side, and the parking was convenient and plentiful.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to any business traveler!

I thought it was pretty good too. The room was spacious for our family of 4. it appears to be a newer hotel with quality furniture. The beds were great. The best part is that it is in a shopping center. Peet's coffee is right there, as is Safeway and plenty of restaurants. The parking is good and it's nice and close to Great America. We liked it. Oh, don't bother with the breakfast downstairs - it's worthless. Day old everything and the omlettes aren't edible. We ate the fruit. It was the only thing that was any good.

I recently visited the Silicon Valley area for a business trip. I stayed at the Sierra for the whole week. It was a very nice experience. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel offered a great breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs, etc.. every morning. They also offered a free BBQ dinner on Wednesday night when we were there. It is a great location. The only complaint I would have is they need a bigger exercise room. You had to wait to use the equipment at 5PM. I highly recommend the Sierra if you are visiting the area.

I stayed at Sierra Suites recently for business. The hotel is much prettier inside than it looks from the main street. The parking is free and easy to access from the building. The room was immaculate and spacious! The room had excellent flat screen TV, DVD player with seperate stereo speakers, an ipod ready alarm clock and a bedroom/living room fold out divider. The bath and shower area is spacious, well lit and ventilated. The countertops in the bath area are granite and the fixtures in the tub are top of the line Grohe faucets! All in all a very great value for your noney. Although this was a business trip, I would definitely stay here with my family for vacation.

My family and I stayed at Sierra Suites in Santa Clara, CA during Memorial Day weekend. We booked the Great America package. The price we paid for our package was very fair. We booked a one bedroom suite and it was like a condo:Tastefully furnished, FULLY STOCKED kitchenette, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and the list goes on. The free breakfast was wonderful, the pool and spa areas were very nice and every staff member we encountered was courteous and effficient. Did I mention Location, Location, Location! Easy access and right near a very nice upscale plaza with a Safeway and a host of restaurants. We couldn't have asked for more.
