    Historical Traveler Reviews ALOFT SILICON VALLEY Newark

    Great Bargain

    from

    Although it is loacted in an awe inspiring buisness park , this Hotel can't be beat in the bay area for the price. Beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are large. Pool is clean and surrounded by baby Palm trees...

    Nice, modern hotel

    from

    Nice rooms, modern hotel, I've seen about 100 hotels 4/5 star in all over the world. W Silicon Valley is between 4 and 5 points. By the reason we got a really good package-rate of USD 129.-- (weekend) I rate it 5 points.

    Good hotel - great prices

    from

    For Mother's Day I booked a room for my mom. She lives around the corner! She loves this hotel and I was worried about the size of the original room they gave me, but they gave me a cozy corner suite with no hassles. Price was awesome and the room service, although limited was very good - burgers were great!

    W Silicon Valley - stylin' and a bargain

    from

    Stayed at the W Silicon Valley for 3 nights. I guess the occupancy levels are not that high after the tech bust and so the rates are very reasonable. The style is W all over, which is mostly a good thing - interesting decor, good beds. The food at Relish, the hotel restaurant is well above your average hotel food. Service is friendly, and the lobby bar has a welcoming feel to it - a place you can see yourself hanging out in for a while.

    Friendly hotel, great location for exploring The Bay

    from

    Stayed at the "W" Silicon Valley for 10 days around Easter and found it a very welcoming and comfortable base to explore the local area. The suites are spacious and comfortable with plenty of amenities including microwave, coffee maker, very impressive shower!!, large and relaxing bed and plenty of comfortable sitting space. The"cafe" restaurant serves a selection of novel and very filling burgers as well as steaks with a different fish dish every day.( I would have welcomed slightly more variation in a stay of our length)

    Getting to most tourist features is easy with Interstate 880 about 1/2 mile east and US Highway 101 just across the bridge to the west. The BART station in Union City is easy to park at (especially after 10a.m when unused commuter spaces are released), and is just 10 minutes away. About a 40 minute journey takes you to Powell street station and the cable car terminus and saves loads of driving and parking hassle ($8.90 return journey) By road Yosemite is about 3 1/2 hours, Carmel & Big Sur about 2 hours and Napa about 1 1/4 hours...all really worth the drive!!

    A little above average

    from

    Love the shower and DVD player in the room. Watch out for the free-looking coffee in the lobby because it's not free. They charge 3 bucks for pumping some un-named house coffee into a paper cup. Kinda chinzy for a business hotel. Exercise room is very small.

    Pleasant stay

    from

    A less used W that doesn't show as much wear and tear as the big city locations. We stayed six nights at varying rates, mostly very reasonable. It's convenient for San Jose if more than one person is in the car during rush hour (HOV lane!), but not if driving alone at peak hours. Food was pretty good, staff generally helpful and hotel clean and quiet. Not easy to access San Fran unless you have a car. Large W rooms, the usual trappings, etc... Well worth a stay if you're on business.

    Great stay every time

    from

    This is a great hotel with the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on! The decor is very "W" and the rooms are well done. One warning: Do not get a room on the first level. It is very loud and the lobby echos down the halls. Do try the hamburger from room service, its one of the best I've ever had.

    AWESOME hotel

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times, the most recent being a couple of weekends ago, and I love it every time. Probably one of the most important things for me, as goes for most of us it seems, is cleanliness, and this hotel exceeds in this area. I stay in lots of hotels, most of them being Starwood properties, and the W Newark is one of the most consistantally clean hotels I have encountered. You know how in some hotels when you're walking around, especially in the bathrooms and rooms, you just kindof feel dirty and dont want to look to closley at anything in fear of being discusted? Well, at this hotel it's exactally the opposite. Every time I come here I am inpressed at how clean the hotel and rooms are, even over the couple of years I have been comming here. The rooms are spotless and always cleaned throughlly, right down to the 'combing' of the suede on the chairs. The rooms are very large and comfortable. The include a sitting area, desk, granite wet bar w/ fridge and plates, a bed area, a closet area, and the bathroom. The bathrooms are very spacous with a bath and seperate shower and AVEDA products. There is also a large TV with VCR. The furnishings are very attractive and VERY comfortable. This is a somewhat different W in that it is in a suburban area, as the price, and room size, show! The rates here, especially on weekends, are VERY good, often under $100, which is over $100 less that if you were to stay in the city (SF), even at the SF W, which runs MUCH higher, not to mention parking which tends to run about $40 a night. It's free at the W Newark. The downside is the smallish, somethat unimpressive lobby and limited restaurant and room service choices. The staff has always been extremely helpful and welcoming. My advice is, if you want to visit SF, don't want to spent a fortune, but want lux accommadations, stay here!

    Ride the BART into SF, which costs about $5 each way and is kindof fun, and is very safe. Believe me, I am the first one to be scared of public transportation! Accually the BART is the only public trans I feel safe in, and NYC subways. If you are in the area on business, STAY HERE! You won't be dissapointed!

    UH yeah Suite is defidently W, decor is w, service is motelesque or not even

    from

    Stayed here over the weekend. Got a typical 400 foot groovy suite. My bathroom door was stripped of paint.GO down to the bar fora drink and the 15 year old bartenders cant make a mojito for the life of them takes them 15 minutes. All they do is complain about how they wanna leave early.do not stay here if u have no reason to

As we walked down Lombard Steet (not the winding bit) a local recommended the best Gelaterio in Little Italy, so we headed off there and sat on the bench outside the shop enjoying what were very good ice creams in the warm sunlight. It was a truely beautiful day in San Francisco...clear skies and warm with no sign of the cold sea mist that so often ...

As we cycled down John.F.Kennedy Drive and up Martin Luther King Boulevard, it occured to me that no one even remotely interested in celebrating the past should do so at the expense of what that past has created in the here and now, and also in the hope that it has given us all for the ...

One thing to note is the high level of homeless, unlike other cities they seemed to be left in peace wandering around among the tourists asking for money but not menacing ( if you can call homelessness a peacefull state ) An odd situation, uncomfortable and strange yet accepting. The weather has been great , windy but hot, mum looks like a panda ...
