... arrived early and the driver Rich was a real cheerful guy. He took charge of fitting our 10+ pieces of luggage + stroller Tetris-style into the Chevy Suburban. Just as we were about to leave we remembered that we had to put all our smoke alarms back on. After some frantic smoke alarm refitting and a hint of sadness to be leaving San Jose we left for the airport.

Everyone just clicked and the kids all enjoyed playing with their little cousin. Carl arrived home soon afterwards and we all sat down to eat. We hadn't sat down for long when Ingrid arrived. Great food and great company. Ginny and Ingrid left around 9.30 and the 4 of us sat up chatting for a while longer ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Santa Clara
Stayed in room 213 and obtained a great $55 rate through Priceline, might explain getting the last room down the hall.
Stayed here one night for a convention last month (April 2006). It was nice from the check in with courteous and competent staff. The hotel is clean and fresh smelling, no sense that it is a run down second hand Westin. The room was on par for the rating level, clean, spacious (about the same size as the Hilton across the street). The beds and pillows are sooo comfortable. We got a great night's sleep. The bath robe is a nice touch. It was too cold to visit the pool and we were too exhausted to visit the exercise room.
Stayed at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara for one night last weekend. We booked the Great America package through the Hyatt website. What a great deal! The package included two adult tickets to Paramount's Great America, one night stay, and late check out (2pm). We arrived at the hotel early in the morning to pick up our tickets. Check-in was smooth and the staff was extremely friendly. I felt they truely appreciated my business. We received our room keys and tickets then headed to the park. We drove to the park but could have saved $10 and walked it was so close. The only hotel closer is the Hilton which is across the street from the Hyatt. After spending the day at the park, we returned to the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows (six on a king bed). Our room overlooked the pool in the back. We didn't hear any street noise or noise from other rooms. The following morning we were able to get up late and spend time in the gym before checking out. The gym was very nice and offered many options. The equipment appeared new and was working wonderfully. Most machines had individual TVs built into them. The pool looked nice from a distance. It was chilly out but people were still swimming. I would definiately stay at this hotel again. The only downside is that the hotel is surrounded by office buildings and not much else. A few blocks from the hotel there is a gas station, two fast food places and a Bennigan's and that is it.
Now a Hyatt ...and I had a great stay.
Stayed for a convention next door (connected to Santa Clara Convention Center).
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I had room service the entire stay and found the food to be top quality and the delievery refreshingly quick.
Room very clean. Attentive maid service. Nice beds. Good shower, decent water pressure.
I travel quite a bit for business and I would happily rank this hotel high on my list of favorites. No frills. A business hotel, but very accomodating and comfortable.
We recently stayed at the Westin for a weekend convention. If you are attending a convention in the area, especially at the Westin, I would DEFINITELY suggest staying here because it's really very nice. If it's for leisure, I probably wouldn't recommend it and you'll see why...
I love Westin Hotels, but this was a real disappointment. I've stayed at Westin's before, and experienced the Heavenly bed, and these weren't. We had a double on the 13th floor (I think it was 13), and it was two 'double' beds, hardly enough room for my husband and I on one bed. It was not soft, or heavenly. The room was much smaller than I expected. It looked like Westin had acquired this hotel from someone else and just put their name on it. The pool was ok, a bit cold. We spent more time in the spa. BTW, if you are interested in turning the spa on, the controls are on the right side behind the foliage in the planter. We found it through exploration. There is a virtual concierge on site, you talk to a woman through a web cam, interesting experience. She was very helpful, however. The staff at check-in were very friendly, nice. It would have been helpful if they'd told us that you can get to the pool without going through the hotel lobby though. There is an elevator from pool level to third floor, where you walk to the main elevators and continue on to your floor, nicer than walking through the lobby in your bathing suit, which they don't want you to do anyway. Overall, we had an average stay (not worth the price we paid however), would go to another hotel next time.
Stayed here for 2 weeks while visiting company office nearby - it's probably relevant that the company was picking up the bill, so I wasn't so fussy. I was given a nice room, King size bed and plenty of space. As usual with the Westin the Heavenly Bed and Bath were very nice.
For Conventioneers Only
We stayed last week at the Westin because we had a meeting at the adjacent convention center. The hotel is nice enough. The rooms are on the small side but they do have Westin's heavenly beds which are very comfortable. However, we will not return because there is nothing to do or see in this Silicon Valley neighborhood (just the Great America Amusement park but for people who live 10 minutes from Disneyland -- that had no appeal.) Other attendees stayed in Downtown San Jose (the Fairmont and the Hilton) and instead took the trolley to Santa Clara for the meetings. There is a much larger selection of interesting restaurants in Downtown San Jose in addition to the terrific Tech Museum. The trolley ride was quick and inexpensive. Next time we'll try the Fairmont.
We stayed here Jun. 18-20, 2004, and had picked this location as it is walking distance to Great America Theme Park, as well as relatives in the area. We are Starwood members (but we got no offer of any upgrade although it totally appeared as though the hotel was well underbooked!) Room was a double on the 14th floor - very small room space & bathroom... but beds are very comfortable. The main drawback was that this property only offers 1 main restaurant - very limited and pricey menu. Honestly, on Sat. evening we saw only 1 couple dining in there! What a waste of space - they should open a coffe shop/cafe of some sort. Pool area is small - and there is no type of pool service. Nothing great to say - nothing horrible to say - basically very un-memorable... so wouldn't chose this place again for the price that Westin charges.
I'm in my room at the Westin as I write this review. This property is very nice: remodeled rooms, Heavenly bed and bath, nice grounds. Staff members are also very friendly and professional. What I really like are the beds and the bathrooms. True to the Westin signature the Heavenly bed and bathrooms are truly comfortable and welcome. This is my second stay at this property and each time the bedding looks like new.
