All-suite hotel with traditional elegance and modern amenities
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.

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.

A very good choice.

I liked the hotel, and the staff were very nice. There was plenty of free parking. The fitness room was nearly empty, so I was able to workout, in peace, no waiting for machines. The breakfast buffet was abundant, and open until10 am on the weekend, for late risers. The room was clean. We had the same Housekeeper, Barbara, everyday, which I appreciate. She was very helpful and accommodating. The fold-out sofa- bed wasn't very comfortable, but are they, ever? The one thing I disliked was that the smoking rooms on the 5th floor were situated near the elevators, so when you step out of the elevator the smell of cigarettes (and other smoke) sort of hits you. Down the hallway, where our room was located, fortunately, did not smell like cigarettes.

Great Experience

The rooms are very nice - a large flat screen in the bedroom and one in the living room as well. The best thing was that on check-in, we each got three coupons for free drinks from the lounge during happy hour. Three each! Breakfast bar was very good, location of hotel was excellent - right off the freeway. No complaints.

Clean, comfortable and convenient

My friend and I had to make sudden arrangements due to very unfortunate circumstances. [...] very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The lobby was inviting, the staff was friendly and helpful. All rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. New Shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap were provided by housekeeping every day. Breakfast was decent. It was nice to have something other than just a continental breakfast. They served pancakes, omlets, sausage, bacon every morning. The location was easy access to the highway which was nice. We would definitely stay here again if we come to visit the Santa Clara area.

great rooms

The Plaza Suites has great rooms, with actual, separate living rooms! Vanity was outside the bathroom, a plus to allow two people to get ready at once. Hallways are a bit dark, but the rooms more than made up for it.
