Proximity to nearby attractions such as Shoreline Amphitheatre, Great America and the Winchester Mystery House make Joie de Vivre's Wild Palms Hotel a prime Sunnyvale choice for leisure travelers from near and far. Meanwhile, the business crowd likes the more relaxed island ambiance as a reprieve from the hustle of Silicon Valley. Open-air courtyards, lush, garden-like landscaping and vibrant murals create the perfect relaxing backdrop for cocktails in the Soleil Lounge.

Rooms

The 208 nonsmoking rooms at the tropical-themed Wild Palms Hotel Sunnyvale bring the outside in, with canopied beds and a color scheme inspired by ocean corals, seashells and island spices. Work desks are equipped with two-line speakerphones and free high-speed Internet access. Coffee-makers, refrigerators, CD players and cable TV help guests feel at home, while complimentary amenities such as Aveda bath products and a daily newspaper (Monday through Friday) pamper them.

Property features

Two outdoor courtyards -- one with a heated swimming pool and hot tub -- and an open-air lobby create a tropical resort ambiance. Business travelers can take advantage of the business center and its T1 Internet connection, the poolside office cabanas, or the same-day laundry valet service. Vacationers enjoy the lending library of games and books, and everyone appreciates the free on-site fitness center, concierge services and free parking. In-room dining is provided by Order Inn, a service that brings local restaurant meals to your hotel room door, and a continental breakfast is available free of charge seven days a week.

One night getaway

This is a great value for the price. It would be nice to have some type of on-site dining options for dinner and or a small bar for drinks. Most of the restaurants that were supposed to deliver to the hotel via the orderinn brochure didn't want to come to the hotel.

Great central location

This hotel is in a great location. Not too far from Great America (15-20 minutes). It's also only 45-50 minutes to San Francisco or Santa Cruz. The staff was friendly. They have a decent breakfast each morning. I didn't use the pool or hot tub, but the area looked nice. The gym was being renovated, but the hotel provides a pass to a gym about 5 minutes down the street. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Great value hotel

Although the hotel looks a bit like an apartment complex that has been converted to a hotel and the room decor is a bit tacky (they call it colorful bungalow style), this is a very comfortable hotel and a great value for the area. Staff is friendly, and the free breakfast was quite good. Basic included wi-fi is a little slow. They charge extra for download speeds over 5 mbps.

Quiet and clean

This is a pretty decent place to stay. The staff are very friendly. Wifi and complementary breakfast are provided also. The only drawback is that it's a little bit hard to find your own room. However, the staff will give you a map...

Interesting Hotel

This hotel is funky and a little out of the way. Everything is expensive in the area so I wasn't too surprised to be paying $200+ for a room/night. Definitely not a chain

I was not informed of construction

I checked in on a Saturday and stayed until Monday at noon. I was not told on Saturday that there would be repairs on the roof directly over my room at 7 am on Monday. I asked to be put at the back of the hotel away from all other people so I could sleep in on Monday since my flight didn't leave until late that afternoon. I was on the second floor so I closed the sheer curtains. When I awoke to all the noise I walked to the window to look out and was surprised when there was a man looking back at me on a lift. Glad I was dressed in appropriate night clothes. There were three work trucks under my window and they had a ladder right next to my rental car door. I took a picture. Needless to say I was shocked and shut the curtain. I told the front manager and she was not helpful at all. She said I had booked through O r b i t z and couldn't help me. She offered to give me a free night on my next visit. I told her I was from South Carolina and would not be returning.

Good deal, nice Hotel

IT WAS A PLEASANT STAY. THE ROOM WAS COMFY. IT'S VERY CLOSE TO A LOT OF ACTIVITIES IN THE AREA AND OVERALL A GOOD DEAL FOR THE COST. OR IF YOU NEED SOMEWHERE TO STAY THE NIGHT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DRIVE HOME AFTER A NIGHT OUT.

Reasonably priced botique hotel centered in Silicone Valley

Room was comfortable and done in cheery colors. Continental breakfast was adequate, though the serving area was smallish and congested. Located in a quiet area, central to most S.V. locations.
