“Nice hotel, very good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Stayed here in December at a very good AAA rate (~$100). Didn't use the restaurant, etc. but the room was good and the lobby had a cool display of gingerbread houses. Very friendly service. Nothing is walkable but with a car the location is pretty convenient to a lot of different things. Free and convenient parking.

I stayed here for a conference on the company dime, so my review is based on that fact (not sure what the going rate is). The service here was amazing. Very friendly and speedy. You can tell the staff has been well-chosen and well trained. Room was very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a bit tight, but everything worked. There is a nice on-site casual dining place, as well as a more upscale one. Very close to Great America, and about a 10-minute walk to AMC theaters, In & Out, and some shopping, but otherwise there is not much close by so if you don't have a car you might feel a bit stranded. Nice pool and hot tub. $13/day for internet but it was fast and functional. No complaints, I would stay here again.

Staff, beds, Elite zone and pricing make this the best of some top grade hotels in the Great America area, like most Marriotts the staff has been well trained and is ready with a greeting at any time just to make you feel important to them, that is meaningful.

We used points for a free room stay while visiting local universities. Since we didn't pay for anything other than parking the room was 'fine' though it was annoying that we asked for a quiet room and we were placed on a corner room next to the freeway. So much for quiet. Had I payed the listed rate I would have been disappointed. This is nothing more than a business basic hotel. Bed was comfortable enough but the bathroom was very small.

I just returned from a weekend trip at Marriott Santa Clara. This is large hotel with 2 buildings. The hotel was full of middle school & high school debaters from all over the country. These are really good kids, but there were hundreds of them. They assigned me a room on a floor with a team whose coach thought the hallway was his office. When I asked to change rooms, they happily moved me to a quieter floor with no students. The room was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. I ordered room service and was thrilled that they got my protein intense low carb order right the first go round. The breakfast buffet and omelet bar (that had oil spray and egg white as optons) was fantastic. They also accommodated my request for whole beans at breakfast.
But, the very best thing about the hotel was that every person (front desk, restaurant, room service, hotel operator) was truly engaged & sincere in their effort to provide excellent service!!! It was so refreshing.......

I will 100% stay at this hotel next time I go to San Jose or Palo Alto.

Room Tip: I like quiet rooms so ask for a quiet room. Mine was on the 11th floor and it was great.

Stayed at this property for a convention up the street, and it is a good 20 minute walk. I recommend the Hilton or Hyatt adjacent to the convention center for proximity and better quality rooms if your company approves. There are a couple of food options in walking distance if you dont have a rental car.

The room I got was in the courtyard in the back at ground level. It was dated, dark and the bathroom was cramped; but I would consider it clean. There is a charge for parking, and the hotel would not budge on this even though the convention hotels up the street offer free parking.

At the end if the day, this hotel was slightly cheaper than hilton or hyatt and company policies required this booking.
