Hotel Los Gatos
Travel Blogs from Los Gatos
We slept late, like logs, and didn't get out and about until about 10.30am. We went for walk around nearby areas of Los Gatos and there are lots of lovely cafes and coffee shops and bakeries as well as nice homeware shops and fashion stores. The weather's gorgeous - lovely and sunny but not too hot. Aya and Chris and the girls picked us up from our hotel, and we all went to Sakura's swimming lesson......then afterwards to a couple of shopping centres. Had burger ...
... SUR DAY!!! I've been looking forward to this day for a while now because I've been hearing about the hype of Big Sur for quite some time. So I got on the road, and boy was I in for it. HOLY FRIJOLES it was SO BEAUTIFUL! I saw a lot more cows and rolling green hills at the beginning, which was as wonderful as always. Then I got to an elephant seal viewing area that was AWESOME! I thought about seeing if I could take one home because they're so cute, ...

... there were no Looping Stars, seagulls, or a million screaming people drinking on the beach at 11 in the morning. This part was filled with scenic views, a lot classier people, and great surf spots (to watch other people surfing of course). This completed the mixed sense of comfort, as until then, there was no comfort at all. The views and tranquility of the 'other' side made Santa Cruz well worth it. In the morning we set off to Big Sur Forest which was a few hours ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Los Gatos
I stay at 4-5 star hotels all over the world, and I'd have to say that this spot is in my top 5 that I have ever visited. I will definitely be back.
I spent last weekend at the Hotel Los Gatos in Los Gatos, California and was pleasantly surprised. From check-in to check-out, the Hotel and its staff impressed me causing me to comment to a member of the Hotel's staff that I couldn't find anything wrong with the Hotel.
Very enjoyable stay
My husband and I just spent 4 nights at the Los Gatos and it was the nicest visit. So very quiet and clean and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed the restaurant and the candlelight dinner out on the patio with a great little band was such a romantic time for us and got our California trip off to a great start. We can't wait to visit again.
Our stay was nice, but would suggest to get a suite as the standard rooms are so tiny! The front staff was very friendly when we checked in, even called us after we got to our room to ask us how our room was which I thought was a nice gesture. One problem was the mini bar snacks, had grabbed a cheese and cracker snack packet and when I opened it green mold poofed out of it..was very old! Went to front desk and very promptly was brought a new one plus an extra to put back so we wouldn't be charged. Also, had a room with an adjoining door and found that sounds carried rather loudly from the people next door late at night..
Over priced, Over rated...
This hotel was a terrible disappointment. The rooms are small, narrow and VERY dark (and we had a "suite"!). There are no views from any of the rooms, except of the pool which resembles one of those fake Tuscan kind of condo properties. The service was incredibly bad. From housekeeping (who never once serviced our room within the weekend stay) to the clueless front desk staff, to the manager at the hotel restaurant (Kuleto's) that lied and told us that they weren't serving dessert at 10:30 on a busy Saturday night. The "spa" was little more than a small space set up in the hotel's basement. Not at all worth paying the regular, full service spa prices for!
This is a beautiful hotel with many pluses. However, an unfortunate incident happened there. Our room had a door very close to a busy pool/public patio area. We checked the door was locked the night before we went to sleep and didn't touch it the next morning. The next morning we left for the day and returned to find that the door was open to the pool/public patio area. Miraculously (there were large parties going on at the hotel), nothing was stolen from our room. This is an unacceptable breach of security.
A great location!
We have booked our stay (three nights) with Expedia and we found no problems with our reservation but a brilliant hotel with a very friendly staff.
Our room (with balcony overlooking the pool) was superb.
A great location, we will come back!
Does not honor reservations, bumps guests without notice
Horrible, corrupt. Dis-honored honeymoon reservations thru Expedia (+confirmed directly). At checkin, told our room given away to guest extending stay. They didn't inform guest that the room had incoming guests, didn't care consequences to us. Claimed attempt to contact us but expedia doesn'trelease contactinfo...lame explanation...why contact us at all? Why not honor reservations slimebags! All managers mysteriously out of reach. Offered alternate Room at "Toll House" a scary dump, so we headed home on our wedding night with my bride in tears. Can you believe this place? Its may be nice if you get in, but why take a chance with corrupt managment?
You definitely want to stay here!!
This hotel was great. It is beautiful on the outside, in the lobby, and in the guest rooms. They have spent a lot of money making the hotel beautiful. Everything was perfect. Be sure to stay here if you are in Los Gatos. It is only a few miles from the San Jose airport if you need to leave early the next morning. I will definitely stay here again and tell all of my friends about it. I cannot explain in words how great this hotel and this small town is. You will just need to trust me. It should be labled a 5 star hotel. If you like luxury and you want every thing to be extra, extra nice, then stay here.
A beautiful hotel
This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the bay area,and I have stayed at many. From the striking lobby,to the guestrooms which are gorgeous,the relaxing courtyard,and amazing staff it was a great experience all the way around.
If I could afford to I would stay here twice a year because you really feel like you are in a far away villa. I can see why the nightly rates are so high here[the hotels really IS amazing] but do wish they could lower them a bit so everyone could experience it just once.
Also the hotel is just a block away from the main strip of downtown Los Gatos for shopping and dining,which can be expensive but nice.
