      Historical Traveler Reviews ALOFT SILICON VALLEY Newark

      Great Bargain


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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 not stay here if u have no reason to

      I spend the last two days ticking all the boxes about what to see in San Francisco. First day by cable car and cycling. Really cycling! Around 20 km on an uncomfortable bike. My ass really hurt at the end. Aua. Second day by boat, tram and foot. My favourite during the two days was cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge and ending up in that nice small village at the waterfront having an amazing late ...

      ... back for $11:00, we thought that wasn't too bad as it would be nice to go on the ferry as well. We had made some rolls up and thought we would have a picnic and then catch the ferry. However when the bike tour ends in Sausilto the guide informs us as it is New Years Day the ferry was not operating only the water Taxies which were $35:00 each or you could ride back. At that price we thought tired as we were we would ...

As is always the case when people get together for drinks, we got all philosophical and discussed things like religion, love and morality. As the night went on and the ...

After we'd eaten we went on a little bit of a driving tour of all the places Sophia has talked about from her childhood. She'd phoned her friend Lexi and we ended up at her house which is this crazy huge American house in a gated community. She was really nice and her and ...
