Elegant and traditional, the all-suite Plaza Suites attracts both the Silicon Valley business crowd and vacationers seeking proximity to family-friendly attractions and spacious accommodations. All 219 suites were renovated in 2009 and feature high-tech amenities and updated decor. A business center and fitness room add convenience, while the pool, hot tub, delicious daily breakfast spread and nightly cocktail reception make even business travelers feel as though they're on vacation.
Highlights:
  • Complimentary breakfast every morning and cocktail reception every evening
  • All rooms were remodeled in 2009
  • On-site dining room, Plaza Bistro Restaurant, serves moderately priced American cuisine

Nice hotel

Waited for some time for a receptionist to become available. The lobby was a bit crowded & noisy. There weren't enough parking spots available for this size of a hotel. Not satisfied that I needed to pay for wifi. Very clean hotel though. Room was nicely furnished.

Great Stay!

We booked this room for our trip to see the 49ers. The hotel was only 2.5 miles away from the stadium, so it was a very quick drive. Location was awesome! Room was nice. Enough room to have 6 people hang out comfortably. Great value and very friendly staff! And of course the free breakfast buffet was a plus!

So well meaning but just not ready

The front desk folks were amazing... the maintenance guys were incredible and everyone was super kind. The facilities were just lacking a bit and you could tell they were going through a major remodel that hadn't really kicked in but may be great and done by next year. The food was disappointing, the rooms small and underwhelming, the new carpet smell in the hall nauseating, the bathtub pretty gross, the restaurant fire was "broken" in the evening when we needed it and then working in the morning when we didn't this was the same for the heater. But I can't overemphasize that the staff was lovely the facility was just not up to par with the price.

Very nice!

The hotel is very nice, the suites are nice and well appointed. Breakfast was very good with made to order warm breakfast items. The only minor drawback is that it is next to the 101 expressway.

Drake vs lil Wayne getaway

The hotel room was above and beyond what I expected, view of the pool (was closed for maintenance). Staff was cheerful and friendly, hotel operator set up our taxi for the concert at the shoreline. The concert was fantastic! To top it off breakfast was set up nicely. I expected a grab and go type of deal but it was more of a buffet. Pancakes, potatoes, waffles, and toast. We loved it. Also our room had a mini fridge and a microwave.

Business Stay

I've stayed here before and had a really nice room, but this time, the room was pretty awful. It smelled like cigarettes b/c even though it was a non-smoking room, it was on a smoking floor. The carpet seemed way too old and everything about the room seemed outdated. I was quite surprised b/c the room that I had stayed in before was significantly better. The manager felt bad about the smell of the smoke and gave me complimentary WiFi. The breakfast was also good. The entire staff was excellent.
