... in fact in every city we've been parking has ranged from €15 to €50 a day with very little options, luckily our house is on the main bus line so our car has been parked up for the week, the buses also are cheap as chips) we sauntered back to the house via San Fran's most chic neighbourhoods. Away from the main tourist traps the up market streets full of designer cafes, boutiques ...

... the Golden Gate Bridge. The Pacific Plate is rubbing against the Atlantic plate and this causes so many earthquakes - it also means San Francisco and Los Angeles are moving closer together all the time. In 16 million years LA will be on The Bay! We ten went to the Earthquake House where you got to feel what it was like to be in a house in an earthquake. It shook and rattled and we had to hold ...

We arrived in Mountain View after a long day's drive and several days in the tent. We stayed at our favorite hotel in the Bay Area, the Hilton Garden View Inn. We love this place for two reasons: 1) Because they have an outstanding buffet breakfast and 2) Because we are able to kind of emotionally reconnect with Aunt Polly who lived in the neighborhood and who passed away last year. We stopped at the park and played a bit, we drove past her house and then we drove ...

We are here!

... all the tourists hang out - Fisherman's Wharf.

We checked out the three hundred smelly Sea Lions that were basking in the sun, tried American Hotdogs (Phoebe is unfortunately already addicted), and went on a two hour, open, double decker bus tour of the city.

This was really interesting, and didn't require a lot of effort.

Phoebe enjoyed sliding up and down ...

... line-height: normal;">Worst - Luzern. It just felt weird with the amount of time we had. We wanted to see more of Switzerland than the Alps and I was told that it's a good "one off" city of Switzerland to see, but it felt like too much time to just consider it a stopover, but not enough time to feel like a real place we could investigate, sightsee and feel like we know it. It kind of just felt like we traveled a day to get there, a day to get back and all ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Avante Mountain View

    WoW this place is marvelous!!!!!!!


    This was an excellent hotel, an ideal place to spend your first night in the USA flying in from Paris. The staff at Hotel Avante is so friendly and helpful. The red haired lady Jerry is extremely nice and the young African American manager Charles/Charlie was also a pleasant sight and very helpful with directions. The food sandwiches there are superb. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Silicon Valley. Just fabulous and in a great location... easy to get to all great spots.

    Nice inside, pretty ugly outside


    Hotel Avante seems to pursue lots of gimmicks to improve your hotel experience. The toys in the room and the funky room furnishings and lobby are fun, but overall I felt that the hotel had a somewhat low-brow feel to it (or maybe I was just uninspired by all the dark colors). The pool area was not pretty. I paid $75/nt. + tax for a King room, and would definitely not pay more to return. If I were to stay in a hotel in the area again, I would sooner choose the Hilton Garden Inn immediately next door - a more expensive option, but appears to be much better quality overall.

    Absolutely Loved the Avante!!


    I have had the opportunity to stay at Hotel Avante twice and I am looking forward to going back. It is not only accomodating for the regular traveler but especially nice for the business traveler.

    Hotel Avante is a small in size but a welcomed change. The size definitely makes it cozy. The rooms are great. From the CD player in the room and a list of CDs you can check out from the front desk to the amazing beds makes it feel like home. The staff is always friendly and willing to make your stay a pleasant one.

    If you are a frequent traveler or just need a place to stay for one night, Hotel Avante is your BEST choice!

    An incredible find!


    Any time I travel to the Silicon Valley, be it for business or pleasure, I try my darndest to stay at the Hotel Avante. A renovated hotel, the Avante is unimpressive from outside, but once you step inside, prepare to be wowed.The hotel opened after undergoing a total renovation, and the decorating style is chic Silicon Valley style, based on 1950s constructionist from Eastern Europe, a comtemporary/modern style which fits well with the tech heads in the valley. The rooms are equipped with egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters, and all the amenities of the rooms business travellers hope to find. They also have the coolest sinks in the bathrooms I've ever seen.If you join their rewards club, you'll get a bottle of water and snack in your room when you check in, along with a personal handwritten note from the hotel manager. The room comes equipped with everything you need to get work done, but also an etch-o-sketch, slinky, rubiks cube and other toys to either get your creative juices flowing, or to get your mind off work.They have a complimentary wine hour (and also have Tide House beer on tap) every day, and the staff is very friendly and eager to help. They offer continental breakfast in the morning, (including a yummy homemade banana bread) and are thoughtful of the guest who may currently be on the Atkins diet and looking for low-carb high protein alternatives to the normal continental breakfast fare.This is definitely one hotel where the guest is first, and they will do whatever possible to make your stay away from home as comfortable as possible.

    Home away from home


    Can't get anymore perfect than this. The beds are INSANE. Complimentary wine/beer during their happy hour. Friendly staff, clean and neat rooms.

    If you're going to Mt.View, this is the place to stay.

    Stylish and comfortable


    Sick of faded or faux luxury business hotels? Booking into the Avante actually makes me eager for another business trip; the retro styling is a welcome mental break, poolside feels like the backyard of a bungalow, and the extended breakfast hours allow me to work to my schedule rather than theirs. Each time I return, the Avante wins over more of my co-workers with the attention to detail. It is a small hotel, but I find that coziness more relaxing than than the impersonal conveniences of a large chain. If I were to suggest areas for improvement, they would be small things, like that the rooms are overly perfumed during cleaning. Otherwise, my only hesitation in writing a positive review is that I might not make it past the waiting list on my next trip!

    Watch out Marriott,Starwood properties


    Where do I begin. This hotel is conveniently located in Mountain View California. It's one of the most breathtaking hotels I have ever seen.

    Poor attitude by management


    Was billed as three and a half stars by Hotwire, but was quite modest in appearance. Had to wait quite a while in the lobby for help with my luggage. The lobby, halls and room were dark, with somewhat dingy, dated carpet, and plexiglass accents in the lobby. The room was small, with a portable closet covered by something resembling part of a shower curtain. They insisted on putting me in a room right on a stairway, although the parking lot was almost entirely empty. The cordless phone in the room was totally non-functional, and no attempt was made to repair it until after I asked for my money back. Overall, very poor attitude on the part of management. Never did accomodate my needs nor refund my money. I would not recommend this hotel unless there was a change of management, and a more realistic star rating given to reflect the ambience.

    Hotel Avante...wonderful!


    A friend of mine found Hotel Avante through the internet and I fell in love with the pictures of it. I had my hopes up high...but almost expecting for the place to be nothing like the awesome photos I had seen on the internet. The photos did not lie! All of my friends were impressed with the place! It's a modest hotel but it's throughful decorating is what makes it stand out. The Hi-Fi Lounge was AWESOME! I spent one morning in there was so great! If you're going to be in the Mountain View area...I highly reccommend staying at Hotel Avante. It's also within a decent distance to Shoreline Amphitheater.
