          This hotel looks to be open air hallways. What is the security in this building? Can anyone get to the stairwells or are they only accessible thru a main entrance?

          There is a main entrance from the Lobby and for quick access there are some doors at the perimeter, but they only open with an active room key.

          Hi, I am staying in Avatar for 20 nights. The laundry rates are expensive than SF's Hilton. Where do I get the laundry done - preferably walkable distance? Thanks, Pravin

          Hello Mr. Pravin, The closest laundry would be Town and Country Cleaner, that is 6 minutes by car, unfortunately there aren't walking distance laundries; the address for this laundry is: 3933 Rivermark Plaza, Santa Clara.
