My company uses Larkspur Landing for employees who are visiting the San Jose office. I've stayed there twice for a week at a time. The rooms could use a little updating, but they are very clean, large, and comfortable. They provide a welcome basket for each guest with tea, coffee, and snacks that is a nice amenity. The biggest stand-out at Larkspur is the great service. The front desk folks are always friendly and helpful. In the evenings I'll stop by for a warm cookie and a chat with whoever is on duty.
During my last stay, I became very ill with chills, fever and aches. The shuttle was unavailable to take me to a drug store, so Randy at the front desk drove me to Wal-Mart and waited there while I bought the things that I needed. It was so very kind of him and made me feel better both emotionally and physically. It was really above-and-beyond service.
The breakfast is great! Maria takes such good care of everyone. There is a good variety of food and she keeps everything full and clean. They also have food in the evenings, something different each night. There is always hot water and coffee on hand in the lobby/library area. It's nice to grab a hot drink (and a cookie) when you come in late.
The shuttle service is a good amenity, but it can get very full. It's particularly hard to get a ride back in the evenings if you don't set it up at the beginning of the week. If possible, it would be nice if they could run two shuttles during peak times. If they did that, I wouldn't need to rent a car. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
All in all, I've enjoyed my stays at Larkspur Landing and I'd recommend it!
