Very nice, quiet and clean hotel. The pool and hot tub looked nice; we would have used them if we stayed longer. Will stay again when traveling in San Jose. Check out the fun robot collection in the lobby!More

Walls are paper thin. I was kept up all night with the clanging of the gates and people coming and going from the hotel. They would not switch my room because I still had belongings in there during the day.

There is a main entrance from the Lobby and for quick access there are some doors at the perimeter, but they only open with an active room key.

Hello Mr. Pravin, The closest laundry would be Town and Country Cleaner, that is 6 minutes by car, unfortunately there aren't walking distance laundries; the address for this laundry is: 3933 Rivermark Plaza, Santa Clara.
