Great placefrom A TripAdvisor Member
W + Suites + Location + $$ = Great Bay area hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great hotelfrom Skyscraper
I got a great non-smoking room on top floor(5th).
Room is really big, seating area, little kitchen (no oven). Great bathroom but found hairs in the bathtub.
Bed was really comfortable, I wish I had the same one at home ! TV has a dvd player and a free video library is available to all guests. (Did not use it).
The pool wasn't enough warm to swim in :( The ocean was probably warmer ! But the spa was hot enough to enjoy it. Their unique fireplace wasn't working, the desk clerk told me they were out of gas. I'm not sure it's the true reason. The pool, spa, fitness room doesn't have a sauna / dressing room.
I asked for a second bathrobe and got it in less than 15 minutes.
We could ear tv from the room behind the bed.
Sound proofing wasn't really great.
If the other room was using their toilet or sink, I would ear it and it was really loud.
Too bad this hotel isn't kept as good as it could be, it's a W, it should be better !
Nice Friday night getaway - service was great!from la_travelette
After attending business meetings in the area on Friday, my husband and I spent the night at the W to kick off the weekend. I reserved a King room online for a great rate - $109. We arrived at about 6:30pm. We were immediately greeted and served at the check-in desk. We requested a quiet room and the clerk assured us that she had chosen a good one. When we got to the room, we were not disappointed. It was situated far from the elevator in a very quiet hallway. We found the room to be very spacious and comfortable. The suite-style room has an efficiency kitchen and a separate living room area with a cozy couch and chair complete with fuzzy throw pillows. Wired, Rolling Stone, and Paper magazines were laid out for us on the coffee table. The bathroom was clean and was nicely designed - tile floors, stainless steel sink, separate tub and glass-enclosed shower. The King bed was super comfortable with large, fluffy, European-style pillows. I would say my only complaint would be the condition of the carpet. It was fairly worn and stained. Other than that, the room and furnishings were in good shape.
As for service, we had a great experience. The mostly-young staff was efficient, polite, and friendly. We had room service both for dinner and breakfast. Each time it arrived promptly within 30 minutes and was complete and well-presented. The person who took our orders by phone was very thorough and cheerfully dealt with my many special requests. The staff that delivered the food was similarly friendly. When I had to call back to get extra cream, it arrived at my door within minutes. Check-in and check-out were done effeciently and with care. Even the staff members we bumped into in the hallway and elevator were talkative and friendly. When I asked for a late checkout, they quickly agreed and I was never bothered by a housekeeper knocking at the door.
This hotel seems to have great weekend rates due to being primarily a business hotel. I recommend it to Bay Area residents or bus travelers staying over the weekend. For a great price, you get an experience that in my opinion is a cut above your typical chain hotel.
Frat Initiationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The price of this hotel is excellent, but be forewarned you will not receive any customer service. You are on your own.
Clean, Comfortable, Classyfrom bigDEE2010
Pro's: very comfortable bed, quiet room, above avg. size bathroom, wet bar with microwave, flatware and stemware;
Con's: location, not close to anything really, must drive into town. The drive isn't bad, being that it's only 5 - 10 minutes from the hotel. However, don't expect to be in The City or "Silcon valley" minutes from your room.
But, that said, it is no negative for the hotel itself. The W is a must for the business traveler that wants style and comfort.
Has Style But Misses The Little Thingsfrom dmfrescatore
What gets me is, the Hampton Inns of the worlds that charge a fraction for a decent night stay offers free wireless and a decent breakfast to boot.
Something doesn’t add up!
Agree -- hotel and service declining rapidlyfrom occupier
Honestly, when I am in this area again, I will use the Courtyard Marriott. For half the price, you get exactly the same thing - except, the breakfast is cheaper, the internet is free, and at least you expect the service level at a Courtyard to be minimal. It will be a while before I plunk down over $200 a night to get treated like a nobody here...cuz I can get that at the Courtyard for half the price :)
I'll watch this space to see if the reviews pick up for this property.
Service level is declining - quicklyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great deal!from mb_500
THe W Silicon Valley, if you can get past its somewhat out-of the-way location (across the bay from Palo Alto), is a perfectly passable hotel for the traveler that likes funky, modern decor. The lobby, much like those found in other W hotels, is dark and lounge-like. (I do want to point out thta the hotel is located not too far off the highway, so it's easy to find, esp. if you are driving in the dark and are unfamiliar with the roads).
The rooms are also quite spacious - the size and shape of what we'd call an "alcove studio" apartment in our home base of New York. I loved how the little foyer area of the hotel room features a hardwood floor - a nice touch.
The bathrooms are clean and well-decorated, and have a separate shower stall and tub. Bath amenities are from Bliss.
I've got to warn you, though, the front desk is a little slow with answering the phone. In calling a few hours before we arrived to re-confirm our reservation it took roughtly 10 rings to answer. Once we were in our rooms, a call downstairs to report a malfunctioning toilet was never answered - we put the call on speakerphone and waited for about 15 rings before we gave up trying to reach anyone by phone. Hello?
This is definitely not the hotel for cushy service, but hey, if you don't need all that and appreciate a modern, clean room in the Valley, then this is your place. Can't beat the price!
Top Local Tips for Newark
Travel up Jarvis to find restaurant options Jarvis Street is adjacent to the W Silicon Valley, so if you want to explore your dining options, drive up Jarvis. You'll find an intersection with several, fairly large strip malls. You can choose from fast food to sit-down options, such as Chipotle Grill, Subway, etc., to Cattleman's.
near the hotel the hotel is in kind of a remote area and a long cab ride from anything. if you want to do something fun however, bring your walking shoes- there is a large wetland and a bit of hiking area right outside the hotel!
Good Thai food within 2 miles Go to Simply Thai on Jarvis st - about a mile or two from the hotel in a shopping center for good thai takeout
