Stayed here for a business meeting, and everything was very nice. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were great about accommodating my request for a quiet room at the end of the hall, and very helpful any time I had a question.
The catering for our meeting was handled well, and they were very attentive about refreshing the coffee, tea, water, and snacks. The food exceeded my expectations for hotel fare, and there is a great patio area with a view of the pool and waterfall where we were served. Great space to get some fresh air and to check messages on breaks.
There are two downsides to this location that travelers should be aware of. First, you need a car, as there is truly nothing close to the hotel to walk to.
Secondly, the hotel shuttle policy is a bit irritating. They will take you within a 3-mile radius of the hotel to any office park. They will NOT take you to Great Mall (Even though they tout that as a reason to stay here on their website), or to any restaurant within this radius. I found that very odd, and it definitely frustrated several of the other participants at my conference who were stuck without a car. This means that location-wise, this hotel is really only a good choice if you're visiting one of the tech companies or office parks in the immediate area. Otherwise, choose an alternate location closer to shopping/restaurants if you don't have a car.
I had a car, luckily, and headed to Santana Row in San Jose each night for dinner. This is a very pleasant area to walk around, with a great variety of shopping, entertainment, and restaurants.
