“Charming and lovely, with little touches to elevate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

I stayed here over the weekend for 2 nights while in town from Seattle for a wedding. This hotel is very charming, with lots of traditional, California style. It's definitely not decorated in a modern way (which is my preference), but I can appreciate its decor, with the lovely fountain in the courtyard, colored tiles decorating the steps, and high end finishes in my room. I appreciated the environmental consciousness of the property, and the little extras (nice bathrobes, turndown service with chocolates on your pillows, a dock for my iPhone/music). The balcony was very sweet, and I have to say, this hotel has THE SOFTEST TOWELS I've ever used at a hotel. EVER. Can you share your laundering techniques with every other hotel out there please?! The front desk attendants and valets were super friendly, and the hotel is in easy walking distance from all the downtown "action" (if you can call it that); I walked everywhere. If I make it to Los Gatos again, I would definitely stay here (and want to try the Michelin star rated restaurant next time)!

Dear Srindstrm from Seattle:

Thank you so much for taking time to share your recent experience at Hotel Los Gatos & Spa. Your feedback was delightful. Thank you for motivating the team with your kind words. We do have a secret for laundering our towels (do not dry 100% in high heat - remain slightly damp and dry remainder on cool). We hope to see you again in the near future.

Sincerely,
Linda, GM

Zak, Ann, Erik,Scott and all the other employees at Hotel Los Gatos provided outstanding customer focus! A great hotel!

The staff not only answered any question we had but went the next mile, asking how they could help get us where we wanted to go...very thorough, excellent attention to detail. Room was comfortable with a lovely balcony. And a very nice view from the balcony. The restaurant looked very nice, but we only ate breakfast there. Very reasonable rate for breakfast.

Fitness center in close proximity! Very walkable community as well. Lunch at steamers grill was fantastic.

Highly recommend Hotel Los Gatos!! Will stay here again when our travels return us to this area!



Thank you to the staff!

We just left after spending almost a week at the Hotel Los Gatos and I can't wait to get back. We have been in grand hotels all over the world but this place is a jewel. Everything about it is first class. The hotel itself, the decor, the location, the staff, I simply can't praise it enough. It has a Greek motive and every piece of furniture is something I would be proud to have in my house. It's like being in a ritzy, ritzy home. Special kudos to Ryan, the breakfast host. He, like the rest of the staff, goes out of his way to make you feel appreciated.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony.

What a wonderful and delightful place to stay and within walking distance to so much. The staff are very friendly and the ambience remarkable! We stayed in room 146, the Paloma Suite which had a beautiful living/dining area with fireplace, large bedroom with fireplace, and very large bathroom with separate shower stall and deep/long spa tub! The overall atmosphere was very elegant. There was a small balcony with two comfy chairs and a small table off of the living area.
Although we were only there for one night we were very impressed and will definitely stay again when visiting family in the area.

I was surprised to find a wonderful, perfect place to get away for a night or two so close to where I live in the San Francisco area. The Hotel Los Gatos is in the main downtown area of Los Gatos only a block or so from restaurants and shops. The hotel is gorgeous, a true Spanish or Tuscan villa with all amenities. We had a suite that had a separate living room area and every piece of furniture and every color scheme was so beautiful that I felt I could just move in.

There's a lovely small pool in the courtyard area and there was outdoor music on this Sat. night. The lobby is a huge area that also felt like part of grand villa. The people are nice and they have been schooled in making you feel very special and welcome. I can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: We had room #248. There are many suites exactly like this one, and I think it is worth the extra mon...

We stayed for one night with a great experience! We booked late and arrived late. The hotel has a beautiful setting, friendly staff and good atmosphere. The room was very very nice with a rustic and mexican feeling and we got to spend the whole afternoon by the pool after check-out. It felt very luxuries!

We stayed here for four days in August, 2013. The service was great, the people friendly and accommodating. the rooms were clean, attractive and well maintained and the hotel was just on the edge of town, so walking distance from everything. In addition, the hotel's restaurant was awesome. Dio Deka, while having slipped just the tiniest notch from their Michelin star perch, served great food and was one of the highlights of our stay. Make a reservation, bring your wallet and leave your budget at home. We'll be back.
