“End of a California trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

After eight days visiting the National Parks of California we spent our last night at the Hotel Sierra before flying out of SJC. It was the perfect end to a perfect trip. The Sierra is just a few miles from the airport so no airport noise. The hotel is new, immaculate, and trendy. The room was excellent and the bathroom had a lighed make-up mirror (yay). We checked in for our flight at the free internet and printer. The included breakfast was excellent with fantastic omelets. There were restaurants and a Target just across the parking lot. Only negatives were a slightly noisy air conditioner and a bit difficult to find.

Had a terrific stay at this hotel... A great value for a business trip to the San Jose area. I learned that Hotel Sierra was recently acquired by Hyatt... Like properties like Hyatt Place, this is a welcome addition for those who want great value and don't need all the fancy resort-like ammenities...

Lots to like -- Clean room (I had a single King bed)... Huge flatscreen TV... Frig and microwave in the room... (Some rooms have kitchen)... Free parking (both outdoor and covered parking with your room key)... Free wi-fi... Free business center... Daily happy hour (which I did not partake in)... Free WSJ and USA Today... A pool table for those trying hard to relive their dot-com or frat days... A free full-on breakfast buffett - with a staff to make omelettes... Sort of reminded me of breakfast in the dorms... Big dish scrambled eggs, sausages, cereal, etc. Good quantity and decent quality... All this for $80 per night with a coroporate or AAA discount. Similar stays might cost you $130 or $150 -- plus parking...

There were a few quirks... The location of this one was pretty stark... Some construction going on outside... Across the way was a Target, Starbucks, sit-down fast food, etc... So, it had a bit of a strip mall feel to it... Maybe a bit sterile if you are on a leisure trip or have kids with you... There is a small pool out front and a small gym, but oddly placed relative to the layout of the hotel...

But, it was terrific for a quick business trip... especially if you're trying to watch your travel expenses... This location is right off of 1st Street - so great access to tech firms you might be calling on... Bottom line - great value for a quality stay...

Room Tip: No really views or "loud" sides to the hotel... Again, it's located in a bit of a corp...

We stayed in this hotel 2 nights on the Labor Day weekend. The room was clean, big, and nice. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Free breakfast was excellent. The only thing that we did not like was the hotel's entrance. We drove back and forth the street several times before we could find the way in.

Stayed there over a weekend on a reduced rate. The place simply cannot be beaten among the 3-star hotels in the valley that cater to business travelers: Breakfast is hands down the best among the hotels in the valley (I have stayed at almost all of these hotels in the last year.). Internet is free; wireless didn't have the usual connectivity hiccups you see in most hotels. The hotel is brand new, so the location is not a trendy downtown area, but it is strategically positioned to be close to most corporate offices around and to the airport. The hotel is brand new, so it has nice amenities and toiletry. The bed was comfortable. We didn't hear much noise either.

Room Tip: There is not much difference in the view you will get. As a rule king-sized rooms on the top floor...

We had no reservation and showed up at 8pm on a Saturday night. It was smooth sailing the whole way. Room 721 was clean, comfortable, and fresh. Customer service was excellent too. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The desk clerk said the rooms on the top floor are the quietest. We were on the top floor and I woul...
